New Release: Renewing Forever

It’s release day for Renewing Forever! This book is for everyone who ever wondered about the one who got away. In Renewing Forever, I combined two of my favourite tropes: friends to lovers and second chances.

Frank and Tom were best friends and each other’s first love. Maybe each other’s only love. But the night Frank finally found the courage to kiss Tom, everything went wrong.

Now, thirty years later, they have the chance to set everything right.

This story broke my heart a few times, but the ending is one of the most solid happy ever afters I’ve ever delivered. It’s deep and true. And despite the sad times, there is plenty of fun to be had as Frank and Tom reconnect and look for ways to renew a broken down resort, and their own forever.

About the Book

RenewingForever_500x750Renewing Forever

Frankie and Tommy once dreamed of traveling the world together. But when seventeen-year-old Frank kissed Tom, their plans ended with a punch to the jaw and Frank leaving town without looking back. Thirty years later, Frank’s successful career as a journalist is interrupted by his uncle’s death and the question of his inheritance—the family resort where his childhood dreams were built. When he returns to the Pocono Mountains, however, he finds a dilapidated lodge and Tommy, the boy he never forgot.

Tom’s been keeping the resort together with spit and glue while caring for Frank’s uncle, Robert—a man he considered father, mentor, and friend—and his aged mother, who he refuses to leave behind. Now Robert is gone, taking Tom’s job with him. And Frank is on the doorstep, wanting to know why Tom is still there and why the old lodge is falling apart.

But before they can rebuild the resort, they’ll have to rebuild their friendship. Only then can they renew the forever they planned all those years ago.

What Reviewers are Saying:

Quote

“Second-chance romances are my absolute favorite kind when well done (as this was), and I could really relate to Frank!” —Andrea D., Reviewer

“Many of us met someone when we were young and never had it turn into a relationship. Some of us wonder what would have happened if it did. This book is for all of us who wanted to try again.” —Susan, Goodreads review

“This is a beautifully written romance with two main characters you can’t help but fall in love with.”  ­—Diane, Goodreads reviewer

New Release: Building Forever

It’s release day for Building Forever! I’m terrifically excited about this release because, while I love all my books, this one is special. I blogged about the long road to publication last week, so today I’m just going to raise a glass and say, “I sincerely hope you enjoy this one.”

 

About the Book

BuildingForever_400x600Charlie King is doing fine. Sure, he’s a widower raising a teenage daughter who just got her first boyfriend, his book series isn’t writing itself, and he has a crush on his new neighbor — the guy next door. But everything’s just fine.

Simon Lynley is doing better. He moved to Bethlehem to fall out of love and rebuild his career. An affair with his neighbor isn’t part of the plan, but the attraction between them is too hard to ignore.

But when Simon’s ex follows him to Pennsylvania seeking reconciliation, and Charlie’s life starts to feel like a video on repeat, everything comes apart. Charlie worries that he’s failing as a father, and Simon is a distraction he can’t afford. Meanwhile Simon doesn’t know if he could survive being left again, and he hasn’t come all this way to make the same mistakes. But despite their fears, it’s only together that they’ll find the strength to slay old foes and build the forever they’ve been waiting for.
