Streetwise and rough around the edges, Jules Shaw is no stranger to earning a living through hard work. But when her job as the restaurant manager of Mac’s Diner puts her shoulder to really broad shoulder with Blake Fisher, she nearly balks. She’d rather dodge and deflect than admit the real reason she broke things off, but the catering contract for the carnival means big business for Mac’s, and feeding people is Jules’s lifeblood.
As Blake and Jules join reluctant forces, they quickly rediscover the spark between them. But the possibility of a future together hinges on coming clean about the past, with potentially devastating consequences. Can Blake and Jules overcome their drastically different backgrounds and learn to love again, or will they always be outside the lines?
Several years ago, I picked up a last-minute handful of books at a yard sale before a summer trip to the beach. I ate the first one like candy, downing it in just over a day. In the back of the book, the author put her email address and said she loved to hear from her readers. What the heck, I thought, and typed a quick note to say how much I loved the book. She wrote me back personally, and I realized that writers are real people- just like me- and that if I put my heart into it, I could be one, too.
It was the moment I knew I had stories to tell. It was the moment I knew I was a writer.
