With a childhood full of broken promises and uncertainty, forgiveness doesn’t comes easy for Emery Phillips. Now, with her family home on the brink of foreclosure, it’s up to her to track down the elusive Theodore Chambers, Jr. and convince him to sign the clause that will extend the loan. Armed with nothing but a name and a possible location, Emery heads to Canada and Stone Cliff Resort, where she meets Ryan, a man who seems as lost as the one she seeks. An accidental encounter of who’s that sleeping in my bed turns into a night of the hottest sex Emery has ever known. As they search for the answer to her family’s future, a summer of stolen kisses and steamy passion slowly turns into much more and the fragile bond of trust begin to grow.
After a year of grieving, all Ryan Miller wants is to get his late mother’s estate squared away and prepare for medical school, but even the best laid plans have a way of veering off track. First, there’s the cryptic words of his mom, I should have told you…things you need to know. Then there's the key he found amongst her things. And finally, there’s Emery, who stumbles into his room, rocks his world and, over the summer, proceeds to steal his heart. When the key unlocks the mystery of Ryan’s past, will it mean a happy future for him and Emery? Or will they end up losing it all?
I wish I could say that I’d always known that I’d become a writer, but…I didn’t. In fact, when I was little, my dream was to become an architect lawyer princess who got elected to the presidency of the United States.
But somehow, I went from the world of software to wedding dress design to full time stay-at-home motherhood, all the time reading romance novels. When my third child was born, I found myself looking for something to do during late-night feedings and naptimes, and decided to try my hand at writing a romance.
In late 2011, I wrote my first romance, a Regency that was soundly rejected by about thirty billion agents (This is just an estimate, but I think it’s pretty accurate.) But something had caught, and I ended up writing more. And more. And then some more. In April 2013, I wrote a novella in response to a call for submissions put out by Entangled Publishing. ONE NIGHT IN SANTIAGO was accepted for publication and published on December 30, 2013. That was the beginning of the next phase of my life.
And I have to say…I love being a writer. Just goes to show that life is a work in progress! Now, I’ve met some wonderful romance readers and other authors, all of whom have given me so much support that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to express just how grateful I am for that.
