Hi Everyone. With all the scams going around, a nasty Internet warning appeared forecasting the storm of the century for today. And now it’s downgraded to a moderate flurry with a couple of inches. No biggie. Yay! We’re survivors, right? You betcha.
Today I begin with my latest release, She DIdn’t Say No, published last week and featured on USAToday HEA section..
Grace didn’t say no to the Big Man On Campus, Scott Dwyer. And then her life changed.. .
Grace makes her way to a new town and with the kindness of strangers, establishes a business called The Pet Emporium where she grooms, what else? Dogs and cats.
Years later, a too-close encounter of an unpleasant kind with a skunk and Scott’s German Shepherd reunites the former lovers.
What happens in between are their stories of beginnings and endings and love lost, then found.
I focused on studies; my goal to be a veterinarian required concentration and high grades. The library emptied most Saturday afternoons as the campus prepared for dates, parties and events that had nothing to do with me, a country girl from way upstate New York with ambition and parent’s expectations of greatness from their only child. One student, I’d seen him before, a guy called a BMOC, Big Man On Campus, glanced over from another table and grinned.
“Hey, you, I’ve seen you a bunch of times before with your cute little nose in the books and wondered if you ever came up for air?”
He spoke to me, this handsome guy, captain of the swim team said my nose is cute and the next thing I knew, he plunked books next to me and grinned again.
“Scott Dwyer,” and he extended his right hand, muscles rippling through his white tee shirt.
I tentatively reached over to shake it and he pulled me closer saying, “Don’t be afraid. I don’t bite.”
Grasping his hand with a firm grip, I shook it and said, “I’m not afraid of anything; I’m Grace Meredith and now I must finish this chapter before the library closes.”
