#WritingChallenge: 3-Sentence Pitch

By now if you’re participating in the Write Your Romance in 150 Days challenge, you’re one month in – that’s one-fifth of the way to the finish line, authors! – and thinking deeply about the essentials of your romance novel. What are the essentials? According to Love Inspired Editor Emily Rodmell in this post from our archive, they’re hooks, plot and conflict.

Whether you’re a pantser or a plotter, keeping these three things in mind will help you in the writing process, from making sure your character’s actions make sense to writing an engaging, original story that will captivate readers. As Emily says,” put those elements together and you’ve got your book in a nutshell, a short pitch that you can use to tempt editors, agents and readers. . . if your book has a defined plot and hooks (which every series romance novel should) it should be possible to share the essence of your story in a few sentences.”

Our challenge this week: Pitch your story in 1-3 sentences – max! We usually let entries go beyond suggested word length, but this time we challenge you to stay within the limits!

You can write a pitch for a novel you’re working on now, or for one of your finished manuscripts. Just be sure to include the hooks, the conflict, and something about the plot – in no more than three sentences.

Share your pitch in the comments below before Monday, August 7, 2017 and we’ll check back with you on Tuesday! Have a great weekend!

    Widow Caroline Wright is suspicious when she meets a visiting stranger to her family’s island who seems a little too nice and a little too interested in her private affairs. Pretending to be a tourist, the laid-back stranger is billionaire Michael Matthew Marsden II, hotel resort entrepreneur and the man who hopes to buy Roger’s Island for personal use. If it takes a bit of trickery on his part, so be it—after all, his future happiness is at stake

    • Self-made billionaire Eli Celani has carried a vendetta against the wealthy Kincaid’s for eight years. Innocent Gina Kincaid has little to do with her overbearing family but when oh-so-sexy Eli launches a takeover of a start-up tech company and becomes her boss, she believes it’s part of his plan to destroy her family.

      Gina tries to resist the sparks flying between them until one night their passion rages out of control and in the aftermath they must find a way to deal with the life-altering consequences – due in about nine months.

    • So Sorry Chrissie, I somehow managed to post my pitch as a response to your pitch. I can’t seem to edit or delete it. 🙁 Red Face here
      And I love your pitch, Chrissie! Would definitely read it.

    • Katie Gowrie

      Great pitch, Chrissie! Thanks for starting us off on this challenge. Your pitch is concise and I got a clear sense of the hooks, plot and conflict here. Nicely done!

    • Chrissie

      Thank you, Katie! This is definitely my start of the “Write a book in 150 Days” challenge. Target Desire or maybe Special Edition. The characters haven’t shown me yet. 🙂

  2. Romance-junkie Emmy’s latest literary hero, fish-out-of-water Tudor rake, Sir Jonathan Dalgliesh, magically comes to life. Now she must rewrite the cursed book imprisoning him each night, or The End will read Fatally Ever After. Lucky then, she’s no damsel in distress.

  3. Dianne Brubaker

    According to Tristan Guthrie, Josie Douglas is most likely a corporate spy; hell bent on shuttering his factory. But the odds say she moved to Scotland with hundreds of millions in her pocket as she tries to fulfill a promise to her old boss while hiding from a former lover. Tristan reveals the truth and his desires as Josie learns to open her heart again.

  4. Andie Boysen

    Brennan Judd fled New York City after witnessing a brutal murder, taking refuge at her family’s Montana ranch.
    It soon becomes obvious that whoever is responsible for the violent crime has followed Brenna, thinking she knows more than she does, and is intent on silencing her forever.
    To save herself and the people she loves, Brenna and Shep- the sexy, reformed bad-boy next door, have to find this madman and stop him before it’s too late.

    • Ruby Mae O'Dell

      I write Christian Romance Suspense ☺. I started doing these challenges a few months back, they’re a great way to get feedback from editors. As well as readers lol

    • Katie Gowrie

      Great pitch, Andie! Very clear hooks and plot here. Looks like there’s strong external conflict in tracking down Brenna’s tormentor. What’s keeping her and Shep apart emotionally? 🙂

    • Andie Boysen

      Thank you for the kind words Katie! As far as the internal conflict, oh boy do they have it!
      Between the two of them, Brenna and Shep have enough baggage to rival a Louis Vuitton store!
      Shep had it all, he was a farm kid on his way. He was on a Division 1 football scholarship, he had met a girl who he had thought would be his wife and she was pregnant with his child. Life had been going just as planned until one night he lost it all along with his temper. He is now raising his daughter alone and rebuilding his life.
      Brenna has always been a straight arrow. Bad boys never appealed to her- until now. Witnessing the horrific act of violence has her shaken to the core. While Shep is gorgeous and so sweet with his daughter, can she really trust a man with a past like his?

  5. DOROTHY Fortune

    He could feel her hard nipples pressing into his chest. His hands strayed to her glorious rounded bottom pushing her against his shaft. Wait, she thought I don’t know you. He groweled into her mouth as she attempted to pull away from his searing kiss.

    • Katie Gowrie

      Hi Dorothy, thanks for posting! Is this the pitch you intended to post or the opening lines to the story? 🙂 Either way this seems like a steamy read!

  6. Callie Amo

    Molly Ryan is twenty-five, single, and all about comfort in her hometown of Blackbird Hamlet, is pushed by her friends to meet men; especially newcomer Aiden Phillips, a single father who just needs quiet. A stubborn client, two- four year olds, interfering friends and family all attempt to help them find love. When a night of passion and unexpected pregnancy happens, can Molly and Phillip create a future of happiness?

    • Katie Gowrie

      Hi Callie – nicely done! This is concise, and I can find the hooks, plot and conflict. I was curious about why your H&H are resistant to love, even as friends (and the unexpected pregnancy!) push them together?

    • Callie Amo

      Hi Katie,
      Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated.
      Molly is all about comfort and sticking with whats in her bubble, and Aiden doesn’t want any drama because he is going through a divorce and full custody of his daughter. However, the more times, they are around each other, the more they start to like each other!

  7. When Mi5 computer specialist Sadira Karimi finds out that her brother has been taken hostage in a war-torn country, she knows that she can only depend on the one man who seems intent on avoiding her. Sergeant Tom Morrison of the British SAS has been through hell and back with his job, but helping the sister of one of his best friends might just make the special forces soldier break his cold exterior. In a race against time, Sadira and Tom must strive to not only rescue her brother, but also unveil a potentially dangerous mole inside Britain’s counter-intelligence agency.

  8. Jan Van Engen

    Saleem is a world famous action movie star also a prince, who is at crossroads, his father wants him home to take his proper place and settle down.
    Heather literally falls into his arms, having no idea who he is, and everything goes viral, she wants to kill the story, he wants her, and there is a stalker fan on the loose, also the fact of who he really is.
    Two worlds collide, a prince and a commoner, can a real life fairy-tale come true?

  9. Ann Malley

    Honor Killing! Single Mother, Angel le Blanc prayed the threat was just that when the father of her child—a rapist—vowed to silence her forever if she revealed his identity, especially to Roham Aschad, the gentle man she’d once hoped to marry. But when a series of would-be assassins has Angel running for her life, trusting Roham, an undercover Special Agent with an explosive secret of his own, is something she must do if only to save her baby and, God willing, resurrect the dream of family they once shared.

  10. The safety of the pack rests on Charlotte’s shoulders; she hopes successfully completing her training will increase her fitness as head of pack security. The moment Zav, Charlotte’s training instructor, encounters her in the wood, at night, and in her wolf shape, he knows she will be his mate. How can he keep it professional during the weapons course, after tasting Charlotte’s kiss?

  11. Ruby Mae O'Dell

    While examining the ill horses at the local rodeo, Veterinarian Victoria discovers they’re bring drugged and now the drug cartel behind it is dead set on silencing her for good. She manages to escape them once with the help of the handsome, single dad, bronc buster, Justus and now the cartel isn’t only after her–they’re after them! Can they rely on their faith and each other to make it out of the Wyoming wilderness alive or will the storm or their dangerous pursuers claim them first?

    • Ruby Mae O'Dell

      Thanks so much, Tambra! *Hugs
      Good Lord willing, I’ll have it finished by the end of the month and ready to be sent in by the end of September.
      Prayers are wanted and greatly appreciated!

    • Ruby Mae O'Dell

      Thanks, Katie!
      To answer your question:
      Victoria recently lost her fiance in a bull riding accident and she’s afraid to love another rodeo cowboy. Justus feels he failed his first wife and child after a horse accident claims his wife and permanently damages his sons leg. So he’s afraid to love another woman, afraid he’ll fail her too.

  12. Tambra Nicole Kendall

    Shifter and B.I.D. agent, Grant MacGregor must find his daughter who was kidnapped by the wizard that killed her mother, but how do you track an incorporeal form who’s getting assistance from every dark living creature in the Celtic Underworld and beyond?
    For the sake of his daughter, Grant is forced to accept help from the one female who stirs his heart, shifter and healer, Shandara Kerr.
    Shandara swore she was through with males after her betrothed nearly killed her and now being on the run with this sexy shifter has her wishing for a second chance, which is crazy.

    • Katie Gowrie

      Intriguing premise, Tambra! I can see the paranormal hooks and plotline here, and the difficulties for Shandara. Curious about how this attraction is problematic for Grant 🙂

  13. charlotte mcfall

    Abandoned at the altar Fallon Marsh tries keeping herself together. Instead of falling apart she packs a bag and jets off on her honeymoon. A chance meeting by the Little Mermaid Statue with Ryder Keats will change both their lives for better or for worse.

Lucy De Lorenzi (Nee Green) dreams of becoming a chef and running one of the family’s restaurants in Tuscany. Despite their love for each other, their marriage can only survive if one of them backs down; the one thing neither is prepared to do.

  15. Just as Jessica Phillips swears off rich men, she meets oilman Blake Sanders, and her apparent lack of interest in him sharpens his determination to win her over.

Will Blake believe in her innocence, or is once again Jessica doomed to see her dreams fall apart?

    Enlisting Sadie in the cause may be his worst idea yet since her father’s closest friend is the very vamp Garrick has pledged to stop.

  17. Alix Adale

    You can’t kill me, I’m already dead…

    The vampire Dreck wants answers about his sire’s murder; Jordan, a battle-scarred slayer, questions her faith.

    They cross paths in an underground fight club, lust soon turning to hate, but a common enemy leads to a shaky truce—even a renewed attraction—until one monstrous secret threatens their fragile spark.

  18. Isabella Lionel

    Brie Knight hates her job as VP of Grain foods, but she won’t let her half-brother down by quitting. For family, she’ll succeed no matter what. Unfortunately, her ex-lover and millionaire ex-baseball player Jordan Swift catches her off guard and now they’re engaged, undermining her professional credibility…and risking her heart and soul.

  19. Dorothy Meiers

    For a girl who got seasick stepping across a puddle, the idea of sailing to Bermuda on a cruise ship was as tempting as a day-old cup of coffee, but Ross, the gorgeous new guy in her apartment building had signed on as a magician and now two days before sailing, his assistant had broken her wrist. Maralee could not resist his pleas, not to mention his beautiful flirting eyes. But now as she packed her duffle, she worried how Grayson, her fiancé, would react when he heard her plans.

    • Kayla King

      Dorothy, I love this. Seasick, last-minute magician’s assistant is something I have never seen before, and it just sounds like so much fun. And she has a fiancé on top of that? Give me more!

    • Dorothy Meiers

      Thanks Katie! I have about 700 words written at this point. Would you like to see it? I’m a bit new at this kind of submitting. Could you tell me where to send it?

      As for more…

      Grayson is furious, but doesn’t want to deny Marlalee the chance to have fun, so he agrees she can go. As the Cruise continues, Maralee’s enjoyment is overshadowed by bouts of seasickness and guilt over her developing feelings for Ross. Meanwhile, Grayson is having his own troubles back in New York.

  20. When hockey star Royd Grainger finds his ex-wife working in a bar, he wants to find out what’s happening to the money he sends her every month. That’s when he discovers they’re still married. In seventeen weeks they can have a new divorce, if they can just ignore how much the time apart has increased their attraction to each other.

    • Callie Amo

      I am very intrigued by this story. What is happening to the money? Is she saving up for something, do they have children together, what is their story?

    • I think this is a little better:
      When hockey star Royd Grainger finds his ex-wife working in a bar, he wants to find out what’s happening to the money he sends her every month. That’s when he discovers they’re still married. In seventeen weeks they can have a new divorce, if they can just remember why they wanted the divorce to begin with.

    • Kayla King

      The world needs more hockey romances, Anne, so I’m delighted to see this. What is happening to the money he sends every month? It’s very intriguing, and as an ex-bartender myself I love a blue-collar heroine.

  21. How do you ask a complete stranger for a DNA sample from her daughter? Business magnate Nathan Thorson had a plan, and he wasn’t about to let something as indefinite as personal morals stand in his way, if the child was his he had a right to know. Child advocate Felicity Matthews had no qualms adopting her deceased friend’s daughter, not only was it the right thing to do, she got the daughter she always wanted without the mess of being in a relationship.

  22. Jocelyn

    Ten years ago, Mason Bishop left Lauren Campbell – the girl he loved, but didn’t feel he deserved – and their small town, clearing the field for his best friend who’d saved Mason’s life in high school. Now a law enforcement widow, Lauren has returned and needs DEA agent Bishop’s help when she stumbles upon dangerous opioid traffickers. Can she forgive Mason enough to trust him with her heart, her life, and the life of the son he doesn’t know he has?

  23. Alexsandra

    Single FBI Agent Desiree Watkins is cooling her stiletto heels on desk duty after a work related injury. She is a little gun shy, especially around her superior, enigmatic and guarded Dominic Pirelli, who has some secrets of his own
    When Grace, the infant daughter of a young couple she befriended, is kidnapped, Desiree and Dominic join forces to find her before time runs out. And maybe Desiree and Dom will find the grace they are both seek.

    • Kayla King

      I’m always interested in knowing the background and histories of FBI Agents, since they’ve usually been around the block a couple times when we first meet them in a romantic suspense. How does Desiree know the young couple, and how was she injured? And what secrets is Dom hiding? And how can they possibly trust each other if they can’t communicate? This is why I love this genre.

  24. Sophia W

    New York billionaire and commitment-phobe Alex Darcy needs a nanny, a fiancée and a better reputation, by Christmas. Gossip columnist and English-aristocrat-in-hiding Tilda Vallance needs money to support her son. When Tilda reluctantly agrees to a fake engagement for a million dollars, their mutual attraction explodes, but can Tilda learn ever to trust and how will Alex react when Tilda’s secrets are revealed?

    • Kayla King

      Yes, a holiday romance! Even better, a metropolitan one. Sophia, you have some of my very favorite hooks in here, including the fake-it-till-you-make-it relationship. What is Tilda hiding? I would read this in a heartbeat.

  25. Sarah Warren

    Sales Associate Lisa James is being stalked by her abusive ex-husband. Police Officer Brent McCarthy is determined to protect the woman he’s falling in love with. Lisa may be able to trust Brent with her life,but can she trust him with her heart?

    • Kayla King

      You have some very classic hooks here, Sarah! I wonder about the ex-husband, and maybe there’s a way to up the stakes even more? Lisa definitely has both internal and external conflicts apparent here, but what about Officer McCarthy? What could he be struggling with?

  26. Dina van't Veer

    The woman jogging down the road that Nik Serrano passed looked shockingly familiar! When Addie Carrick learns the identity of her new neighbor her heart stops, he is the hotel magnate that her former fiance had tried to swindle out of millions. Nik had seen her in the past and can’t take his eyes off her now, with seduction in mind he hopes she will be his next conquest.

    • Kayla King

      I love that Addie’s former fiancé almost ruined Nik. That’s such a fun and interesting conflict that I feel like I haven’t really seen much of before. And it leaves us to wonder – is Nik’s seduction pure, or is it revenge?

  27. Skiffer

    Becca’s life consists of juggling an insecure ex-husband, two sons and her technology company. When her mother’s failing health calls her out of the city and back to her country roots, fate is tempted when she runs into her teenage crush who is deaf. She asks him to partner with her on a new smartphone app for deaf people.

    • Kayla King

      Returning to roots is a fave of mine, Skiffer! So naturally I’m already on board with this pitch, and I’m also pleased to see a second chance romance in the form of a deaf hero, which we haven’t seen a lot of!

  28. Margaret

    With two dead fiancés to her credit, Miss Clarissa Scott is determined to ensure that her third fiancé makes it to the altar alive. Her 21st birthday is fast approaching and she will lose the family inheritance if he doesn’t. Only the Duke of Bedford, her current fiancé, is hiding a secret. He’s only proposed in order to find out who’s murdering his friends and why.

  29. Chantelle

    After a devastating betrayal and subsequent divorce, Elise had worked hard to piece herself back together and finally achieve her dream of owning her own bridal salon and the precious independence it affords. It’s an independence she guards as zealously and carefully as she does her own heart. But when the man behind a takeover threatening her beloved business turns out to be the first love she walked away from twelve years ago to chase those dreams – a man that still had the power to ignite her temper and passion in equal measure – she is in danger of losing both.

  30. Chanel West

    Chanel is set to wed her first-love, Eric, within three months. A brief separation caused by infidelity caused her to find solace in the last person she ever thought to seek- Eric’s older cousin, Kendall. With new feelings brewing for Kendall, Chanel finds herself torn between something old or something new.

    • Patience Bloom

      Oooh, I like this. It seems more like a longer story and not really a traditional romance (because of third party/even fourth party) with lots of angst and choices between love and obligation.

  31. After a tumultuous freshmen year, Kyla is not amused by her parents decision to send her to a retreat for troubled youth in rural Alaska. Once there, not only does Kyla fall in love with the land, but there are two very handsome and very different boys vying for her attention. Halfway through the summer, her bliss is interrupted when an oil company moves in on the land , threatening to drill, and they must all bond together to save their wild paradise.

    I am also somewhere where it is still August 6th – bet you can’t guess where

    • Patience Bloom

      Let me guess, Hawaii? In any case, judging from the ages of these characters, perhaps this is a YA romance? Or New Adult? I wasn’t sure if it was a romance or broader scope fiction. I would caution against adding too much suspense when the juicy relationships between these characters might be the most interesting part. Best of luck!

    • Ms. Bloom, thank you for your input! Yes, I was shooting for YA Romance. I will work on tightening up the story line and focusing more on the relationships.

  32. Caitlin H

    After a series ofaccidents, bakery assistant Alexa Chandler is suspicious when her mentor’s death is ruled a suicide. Undercover NCIS agent Spencer London is assigned to investigate the death of bakery owner and Culinary Specialist 1st Class Dylan Tyler. Misleading evidence makes Alexa the primary suspect and tension sparks between the duo . . . can Spencer find the killer before Alexa becomes the next victim?

    • Patience Bloom

      Dear Caitlin, I have to say, I have a special love of stories that center on bakeries. Nicely done and I like how you bring in suspense Just as long as nothing ruins a batch of cupcakes!

  33. Kathryn

    When her date is arrested, financial wizard, Alice McGuire, suspects something more is going on when the police bring her in. The cop who interviews her doesn’t trust her, but he’s convinced that she can help him trace money missing from online bank accounts. All he wants is an introduction to the man she was meeting, what he doesn’t say is that it will be impossible to keep her identity secret or that putting her in danger is breaking his heart.

  34. Savannah Sunrise

    In a sleepy little college town, Professor Ariel Summers hungers for two things: her freedom, and the excitement of a man who doesn’t think lecturing her is the most seductive of aphrodisiacs. Driven to the city on one of the few nights before her sleepy little town returns back to being party central, she drowns her sorrows in a bottle of Mick’s sweet whisky. It is in Mick’s bar where her two worlds collide when she runs into young Logan Winters, and finds that he is hell bent on showing her the pleasure that can be had when she releases that infamous control and surrenders.

    -This is meant to be an erotic short for the Carina Press line

    • Patience Bloom

      Well done, Savannah. What I would suggest is shortening this pitch just a touch and bring up the younger man/professor theme a bit sooner. I can definitely see this as a seductive short, or even a longer story with plenty of angst (and other things :))

  35. Lakisha friday

    Sorry this is last minute. I been stomped. So here goes:
    I have to stay crazy in order to stay sane. Michelle said to herself as she contemplated her next move.
    There was only one shot at getting out.
    “Miss Mitchell! Time for your special medicine!” Michelle turned away from the window to face the nurse that was preparing to administer the shot. One chance to break free. Before the nurse could give the shot Michelle attacked her and ran like her life depended on it.

  36. Sophia West

    Amber Lacey has spent the last six months wrestling with New York authorities to be allowed adopt her dead sisters daughter. She’s finally returned to London, landed herself a job and is about to meet her new boss, the millionaire tech enrepreneur, Johnathan Ascot. She should hate him, she knows she should, but she’s instantly drawn to him – but how and when will she tell him that he’s her adopted daughters father?

  37. Lakisha friday

    Kind of messed mine up when I redid it so this might be a better version maybe:

    “I have to stay crazy to stay sane. Michelle said to herself as she contemplated her next move.
    There was one way out of this hell hole and she was bound to do anything necessary to leave and find her brother’s killer.
    Miss Michelle! Its time for your ” special” medicine! Michelle smiled knowing that this was her chance and she grabbed the nurse and shoved him to the floor.
    “Get me out of here now or so help me…..

    • Patience Bloom

      Dear Lakisha, I love the idea that the heroine is captive somehow and has to escape. I might suggest, though, that you write a more straightforward pitch and not try to plunge us into the actual story just yet. But intriguing idea just the same!

  38. Melanie

    Fugitive Recovery Agent Autumn Behounek gladly takes on the job of hunting down the worthless ex-husband who left her broken and alone when he jumps bail, but things get serious when a new warrant is issued on him for the murder of a local District Attorney and Detective Chase Lane gets in the way of her hunt and her determinedly single status. As they begin to uncover the plot to frame Autumn’s ex, Jake, she not only has to protect her heart from the charm of playboy Detective Lane but her life as well.

    • Patience Bloom

      Quite interesting story here. I like how the ex seems to be escalating in his crimes and that the heroine has to trust the hero with protecting her and with her heart. Nice!

  39. Melanie

    Desperate to conceive an heir and secure her place in the palace, sexually inexperienced Queen Margaret accepts her mother’s proposal to entertain different lovers from the aging and nearly impotent King’s bloodline to better the odds. The plan is dangerous enough, but when the King’s nephew, Lord Brandon, steals Margaret’s heart, the two begin a dangerous affair that could see them both beheaded. Is there any hope of a happy ending when the fate of a nation’s ruling household stands between them?

    • Patience Bloom

      Dear Melanie, I love the kind of story where a character falls in love with the “wrong” person, though I would watch how gruesome the consequences could be. The threat of beheading is bit too frightening for a romance novel. And I wondered that if the heroine falls in love with the nephew, isn’t that still in the bloodline? Otherwise, a fascinating idea.

  40. Jeanne-Anne Hengst

    “Rafe, help me.” Rafe Hermann gets this call one dark Texas night. Rafe’s response is immediate because he has a weakness for this young single mother and her baby girl. Rafe saves Karinne, but for the small town Texas farmer the ominous incidents including vandalism, murder and kidnapping of baby Tessa test the Rafe’s courage, strength and dedication and most of all his relationship with Karinne.

    • Patience Bloom

      This has the potential to be quite heartwarming with the budding family coming together during dangerous times. I would consider bringing out more what makes the heroine special and strong.

  41. Jeanne-Anne Hengst

    Tillie, stranded at midnight on a gravel road still five miles from home, stops at a neighbor’s farm , discovers he’s been murdered, and finds herself fleeing for her life. Tillie’s subsequent rescue by the new Sheriff Logan Murdoch is the first of her near escapes. In tiny Kirland, Texas nothing ever happens, but Tillie finds that between them she and Logan can trap the murderer.

    • Patience Bloom

      Dear Jeanne-Anne, Lots of suspense here, and the real creepy kind. I adore this kind of story, though I would caution having a non-law-enforcement heroine working on the case, unless she has some training or a family member involved.

  42. Jennifer M Lucy

    Tycoon, Daniel Wilson is sent to a small town to convince owner Nicole Taylor to sell her bakery to Wilson Enterprises. His father and boss, Daniel Wilson Sr. believes that “Sweet Treats” would be a household name , but Nicole refuses to budge. His father, however, believes with a bit of persuasion and Wilson charm, she’ll accept the multimillion dollar offer. Daniel Wilson Jr. isn’t convinced that Nicole Taylor would cave, he knows her all too well because he broke her heart six years ago after ditching her an hour before there elopement at a Vegas chapel. In fact, he didn’t tell her he was on his jet back to Canada while she was receiving a massage at the spa.

    • Patience Bloom

      Wow! This story ends on a real cliffhanger. I want to know why the hero left the heroine at the altar and not just to catch a plane. Why did he need to catch a plane? In any case, this seems like a fun story with lots of reasons why the hero and heroine should have some friction! Well done.

  43. Cassandra

    I realize I am posting this past the deadline, but I would appreciate feedback if possible. Thank you.
    Sara, a young widow, has her sites firmly focused on the future: raising her young daughter Maddie, and going back to college. Romance is the last thing on her mind until the handsome and caring Jacob sits behind her in business class. With Sara harboring a health secret and Jacob leaving town to care for his mother, do these two have a chance at love?

  44. Suzanne

    Seva falls into a deep sleep, only to awaken 200 years later in a small fishing village in Scotland. Confusion and fear come in waves – Her heart beats irregularly to the point of pain, her memory is gone and nothing or no one seems familiar. It is only after she is taken in by a local man and his Mother does she find the strength to draw out memories locked away for too long – her fractured heart is caught between two worlds – the one she ran from and this one, where love waits.
