Spotlight on the Now and Forever Series

Now and Forever 1, a Love Story
 Callie Richards was no stranger to heartache. Her parents were killed when she was sixteen. Left with her older sister, she fell into a romance with good-looking, Kyle Maine. They became engaged and Callie’s future was set until he was killed in Iraq. Two years later, she pulls herself together to get her Master’s degree and restart her life on her own.

Working and studying at Kensington State University, Callie meets Mac Caldwell, the handsome dean. Together they fall in love, then fight a deadly campus drug ring with heart-breaking results. This is an emotional story, not a cookie-cutter romance, that will make you laugh and cry as Callie struggles to make a new life, find love and her happy ending.

Now and Forever 2, the Book of Danny

Can the newest professor at Kensington State escape his previous life as a killer? Leaving the Army didn't mean the war left him so Capt. Danny Maine, now teaching English, must find a way to lead a normal life. Finding love and rekindling an old friendship are not enough to defeat old demons. Danny Maine reaches fights to free himself from war memories and dangerous men, hoping that a new love and a new Glock will bring him peace.

250+ pages for only $4.99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and All Romance eBooks

Happy birthday, Kathleen. I feel like I've been partying all day :-)

Jean, Danny Maine's (unscrambled :-))story sounds interesting. Would love to read it (hint hint)

Your book sounds good. I always wonder what it's like for someone who comes home from war. My grandfather was in the navy but no one in my immediate family was.

Thanks so much for hosting.

Happy Birthday!!!
