Being someone first love is unforgettable. Being their last is immeasurable.

Claire Peters should be on top of the world. She owns the radio waves and has a budding movie career. But her heart longs to be rooted. Ten years ago, she fled Martha’s Vineyard to pursue her dream and to make something of herselthere’s still a void. After a decade of running, she returns to the island hoping to find her happiness with the man she’s loved all her life.

When a tragic event shatters Dr. Forrest Desvareaux’ well-balance world, the Vineyard’s hometown good guy discovers everything in his life is based on lies. Angry and betrayed, he turns to Claire – the one woman who has indelibly marked him.

Is it possible to run back to the person who broke you? Forever linked, Forrest and Claire are an unending continuum. But she’s a wildflower and Forrest’s roots run deep on the Vineyard. Can they accept home is not a place but a feeling?

Tattooed Hearts is book 3 of the Martha’s Way series

Excerpt

She knocked on the door and waited. Nothing.

She knocked again, a little firmer this time. Still nothing.

Claire reached in her purse and grabbed her phone. Damn, no freaking signal. Another perk of living on the island. Phone signals were capricious. She turned on her heels to the back of the house where she knew he kept the emergency key, then headed back to the front. The night wind penetrated the wool coat with absurd ease, making her shiver. She drew her shawl around herself more tightly to keep out the cold as she fumbled with the key.

The door slowly creaked open; she stepped inside and was greeted by a muted house, which was not typical of Forrest. She headed down the hall, the click of her heels amplified with each step on the wooden floor. She entered the family room. In here, ESPN always blared in the background. Tonight, there was nothing but an eerie, hollow silence.

A bad feeling slithered up the back of her neck.

She dug in her purse for her phone again. One finger dragged along the screen, it lit up. Still no signal. A knot of fear twisted in her gut.

“Claire.”

The sound of Forrest’s voice, infused with a question mark, caused her heart to jump and fill with joy, relief. She whipped around and faced the main reason she came back to Martha’s Vineyard.

SIX TOP TIPS FOR AVOIDING WRITERS BUTT

Love this!

Pink Ink

Did you even know there was such an affliction? No? Neither did I, until my jeans were a little snug after hitting a deadline late, and the impression in my seat was a trifle larger, as though someone else had been sitting there for eight hours a day cupping their head and berating the word Gods. It came up in conversation one day, in our Carina UK Facebook group.
Writer’s butt.
And what these (way more energetic ladies) planned to do about it. There were suggestions of a special desk, levelled at typing height, while they stepped and typed their way to a new butt. Some bought bikes. Or vowed to walk the kids to school. Or take up yoga. Deadlines, and complete disorganisation seemed to be a good excuse as any not to follow suit, but surely there was an easier way? In the interest of butt’s everywhere I…

Monday Motivation: What Inspires Me?

story

I came up with the story for The Back Nine based upon the idea of taking a mundane task and making it erotic. I could immediately visualize Brooke and Alec on the golf course and what happens between the two of them. I’m currently working on the sequel and with this story readers will see Alec and Brooke as secondary characters. The setting is the same at a luxurious golf resort in Cozumel, but the two main characters are different. How did their story come to be?

My mind is always racing with ideas and I imagined these two characters landing in Cozumel and the back story that drove them to this destination. Then I thought about the conflict that would push this story forward and I jotted down the synopsis and different things that would take place in each chapter. I’m currently at the end of Chapter Two. I’ve set a pretty high goal for myself with this particular book. I’ll let you know if I make it.

In other news, tomorrow is release day for The Back Nine! It is available for a 10% discount until April 21st.
