If I Loved You Tour Stop!!

Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. Disrespectful of tabloid superstars, financial advisor, Meg, was shocked when she was tapped to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed. The biggest surprise: the charisma of her first client.

Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would attractive Megan Davis, his new financial advisor charm the truth from him or would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance

Teaser 1:

Meg’s lack of confidence about her appearance dated back to her childhood. Never the better-looking twin in her mother’s eyes, Megan became insecure and awkward. She turned toward books and away from pretty dresses. While handsome, blond-haired Mark laid claim to being the outgoing, charming, athletic twin, Megan, whose moods often matched her dark locks, was labeled the shy one. She’d bury her nose in a book rather than go shopping or even to a dance. Even now, she could recall hearing her mother say, “He got the looks…she got the brains.” Unbeknownst to her, Mary Davis’ voice carried beyond the master bedroom.
     “Shhh, she’ll hear you.” Her father had shut the door, cutting off the rest of the conversation from the eager ears of skinny, eight-year-old Megan.

Teaser 2:
Chaz threw an evil glance at Quinn. “This one is different.”

“Oh?” Quinn raised an eyebrow. “Haven’t I heard you say that before?”

“She isn’t in the business. She’s smart and funny.”

“I thought you said you’d never date anyone not in films.” Quinn tried to hide a smile.

“Meg is…she sees me as a regular guy. She’s not star struck. Her brother is Mark Davis…” Chaz sat forward on the sofa.

“Mark Davis of the Delaware Demons?” Quinn sat up.
“Hell, did you get tickets? When are we going to a game?”

                If you’re a reader a like I am, you have read a ton of books.  The different genres that are out there for you to choose a book from can seem daunting at times.  But, no matter what you read, there is always that one genre that is your ‘go-to’ when it comes to books.  For me, I am a sucker for romances, crazy I know!
                There is just something about the romances that brings a smile to me and can always make me feel better after reading the story.  In this book, it is what I would consider a gentle romance.  Although there is a ton of drama that takes place during the story, it is done completely well in my opinion.  One thing that I did enjoy about Chaz and Meg’s relationship is that they worked for it.  It wasn’t an easy relationship for either of them, but they worked together to try.
                I enjoyed that factor a lot because real life relationships take work, and by them having to fight to be together it gave the book a real life quality to it.  Chaz and Meg seem like complete opposites in the beginning, yet as you learn more about each of them you find out they have more in common than they realized.
                My only complaint about this book would be that it’s about an actor and the unsuspecting woman.  It feels like this type of story has been done many times before, but on the same token, I really liked the fact that Meg isn’t a naive innocent 18 year old!
                All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves romance.

I didn't start writing until about 17 years ago. I had two small children and used to get up at 5:30am to write for two hours before they got up.
No one believed I could be a writer...least of all me...but I was driven to do it anyway. Like an addict I was compelled to write.

I started out writing 500 word articles on advertising, business and parenting, based on my own experience. Lo and behold, after my first article failed, everything else I wrote got published.

This was exciting and encouraged me to attempt my first book, "Beyond the Bake Sale, the Ultimate School Fund-Raising Book."

I got an agent from a friend of mine and she found a top publisher, St. Martin's Press, with a fabulous editor, Elizabeth Beier and I was off.

After six more non-fiction books were published, I tried my hand at fiction. One cold day last January, while I was recuperating from loss and illness, Callie and Mac landed in my head and told me their story. I flew to my computer to get it all down, just the way they were telling me.

"Now and Forever, a Love Story" was born. The characters have no resemblance to anyone I know and, least of all, to me. They are completely formed total strangers that leaped out of my head and onto the page.

It was a wonderful experience, listening to their story. I fell in love with them. After the book was done, I couldn't let them go. They were kind enough to bring another character to the forefront, Danny Maine who told me his story and "Now and Forever 2, the Book of Danny" was born.

After that I became a writing machine, writing seven days a week as many as seven hours a day. I finished "Now and Forever 3, Blind Love", the first two books in the Moonlight Series: "Sunny Days, Moonlit Nights" and "April's Kiss in the Moonlight". And the first two books in The List series: "The Marriage List" and "The Love List". I am finishing up the last books in these current series and will begin a new series in 2013, "Hollywood Hearts".

I hope you will keep reading as I intend to keep writing until the stories run out, which doesn't appear to be soon! Thank you for buying and reading my books.

Best wishes,
