book blurb

The only thing Briana and Tiana have in common are their identical looks. For Tiana, life is one challenge after another, but her greatest struggle is sharing a face with the sister she despises. Tired of living in the shadows, she comes up with a plan to finally have everything she ever wanted.

Everything seems to come easy for Briana, including her beautiful children, loving husband and dynamic career. Briana’s charmed life is ripped apart when she wakes up in the hospital with no idea who she is and no memory of her former life. With the help of the handsome stranger who saved her, Briana builds a new life and finds new love, while Tiana won’t rest until Briana has no life at all.

excerpt

His honey brown eyes searched hers. Charles felt her sincerity, and raw emotion ran through his gut. He was aware of her warm, soft, body invading his space, and he didn’t mind it one bit. His lips met hers and they kissed. A simple kiss at first, then his hands wrapped around her waist and their kiss deepened. He turned her toward him and she straddled his lap. They kissed like long lost lovers, his lips sucking the bottom and top of her lips before inserting his tongue in her mouth.

Briana’s stomach was in knots and she savored the taste of him. A moan left her mouth and found its way down Charles throat, which was met with his own barbaric, sexually stimulated grunt. As Briana slightly pulled away from him for air, Charles rained kisses down her chin, across her face and to her neck. Briana felt his arousal grow beneath her, which made her body heat up from the bottom of her toes to the top of her ears.

In a breathless voice, Briana spoke. “Maybe we should slow down.”

After she said it, she regretted it. No way did she want to slow down, at least that’s what her body told her. Charles’ fervent kisses slowed, but didn’t completely stop. Briana had set his emotions on high, and every loin in his body wanted her right then and right now. Slowly, he sat back, his broad shoulders and chest heaving, forcing himself to comply with her wishes.

“That wasn’t very Christ like, now was it?” Charles said with little amusement.

Briana fidgeted. “It’s just that…” She searched for the right words to say. “I don’t want our lovemaking to be in vain. I don’t want it to happen because you’re feeling vulnerable right now.”

Charles regarded her for a long moment, his thick eyelashes hovering over his strong penetrating gaze. His tongue swept across his bottom lip as he assessed her, tasting the sweetness she’d left lingering on his mouth.

“I can assure you,” he said, his voice deep and husky, “when we do make love, there will be nothing vain about it.”

AboutTheAuthor

A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.

She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.

Our next stop: Disney World, where we ‘worked for the Mouse’ as chefs, courtesy of Walt Disney World University Chef’s School training. More education landed us in academia at The Ohio State University. For decades, I researched, wrote, and taught a number of gloriously nerdy topics. Retired now, I’m still married to the same, sweet, guy and live with him near Palm Springs, California. I write mysteries set in sunny California!

Allyson R. Abbott
I love to travel, but I also need to work. Being an author allows me to combine both of activities and has the added bonus of life being an adventure. I never know where I will be sitting writing from one year to the next. As I write this, I am in Africa, in spring I travel to Europe for a few months and later in the year to the USA and Canada. It is a great life, if you don’t mind a little insecurity.

I try to bring a little of my adventurous personality into my stories. Being a ‘mature aging gracefully’ woman, I feel akin to the problems of aging and relationships. I spent many years on my own before finding my truly remarkable and very patient partner who I happily gave up my whole world for. My stories are about mature relationships with mature people. People who have character and humour, who have a history; people just like us.

After spending most of her life in New York City, Tamara Philip decided to let love lead her on an international adventure, where she’s met many amazing people and ate entirely too much. Tamara and her English-born Husband, Chris, now split their time between the United Kingdom and Trinidad and Tobago.

Writing has been her secret passion since childhood. Quirky female leads are her trademark.
