The Parking Space PNGLast teaser before the release! Enjoy and don’t forget to join us for the ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!! Games, free books, and tons of fun!

After her fiancé leaves her at the altar and a blind date stands her up, Helen Wright is done with love.

Married to her real estate career instead, the only thought on her mind is selling a top listed house in San Francisco so she can finally afford the home of her dreams.

Unfortunately, fate decides otherwise.

After her wealthiest client fires her, Helen’s vision of moving away from her cramped apartment and the person stealing her parking space vanishes. Her professional life is now feeling just as pathetic as her love life.

So when her best friend, Lisa, informs her that she’s getting married in Bora Bora, Helen packs her bags for a much-needed vacation and boards a plane with the excitement of leaving all her Mr. Wrongs behind.

A new practice and a new place to live, those are the only two things that veterinarian Rick Stark needs after finding out his fiancé cheated on him. With his trust in women shattered, he jumps at the chance for the perfect job, leaving San Francisco in the dust.

However, while visiting his possible new boss on the islands of Bora Bora, he finds himself in the company of a familiar face—the attractive owner of a patient who he once thought he wasn’t interested in.

Could it be that maybe he was wrong about her? And if so, what’s he supposed to do when her old flame falls into the picture wanting to rekindle what they once had?

Excerpt:

“So what’s up?” I shook my thoughts from my head, ignoring the loud thumps that still boomed from below as I refocused my attention and fetched the glass of wine from the coffee table.

“Okay, so remember what we talked about at lunch a few days ago?”

“You mean the destination wedding you’ve been secretly planning?”

“Ha. Ha. Yes, that. Anyway, we have finalized all the plans.”

“Oh wow. You did? That was fast.”

“Well, we only needed to figure out a couple of details.” She hesitated on the letter ‘s’ as though she felt unsure of her next words.

“Okay, so what’s going on then?”

“Well . . . you wouldn’t be able to leave in a few days for a vacation to a beautiful island to watch your best friend in the whole world get married, would you?”

“What do you mean in a few days?”

“Like Wednesday?”

As I opened my mouth to answer, a woman screamed from the courtyard—her shrill screech not that of fear or pain, but of a laughing excitement that echoed through my opened glass door.

“Logan, you are too much!” she said.

I rose to my feet and strolled through the doorframe, peering down on them from my balcony. Logan chased the blonde girl around the tiny patch of landscaping. Their hair wet from taking either a dip in the pool, a soak in the hot tub, or both. Her laughter bounced off the buildings as he wrapped his arms around her.

“Helen?” Lisa asked. “Are you still there?”

“Yeah, yeah, I’m still here.”

“So can you leave on Wednesday?”

I watched Logan tackle the blonde and playfully push her down onto the grass. Unaware of their audience, their teasing banter changed into a heated passion as he ripped off her bikini top.

The icing on the cake to this horrible day, ladies and gentleman, another woman’s boobs.

    1. LOL. I’m actually going to probably slow up from now on. I only have one release planned for 2017. I do have two for 2018, but they are a mother/daughter series. Then in 2019, I’ll go back down to one a year. I can’t keep up with the pace of two a year. It’s just too much.
