Paperback, 320 pages
Published July 2014 by Red Adept Publishing
Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.
When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.
Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?
Romance Is Like Butter, It Makes Everything Better
Romance novels are full of hope and possibility. Here you are walking through life, trying to make the most of your circumstances. You’ve made promises to yourself. Maybe you’ll never trust someone again after what happened with that last someone. Maybe you just don’t want complications, and let’s face it, nothing is more complicated than love. Or maybe it’s that you’ve been alone for a long time. You don’t believe your special someone is out there.
But then you meet a guy. He looks at you and your body heats. He speaks and you hear the blood pulsing through your veins. His laughter is air, and when you’re near him you breath deeper, breath faster. You are alive.
Life with love is more alive. It changes every part of who you are and how you understand the world around you.
We might meet someone who makes us feel this way once, perhaps twice in our lives. This, I believe, is why we are drawn to romance novels. To experience the thrill of falling. The rush of that first touch, skin on skin. Those heavy seconds before a first kiss, the heat of his mouth on you. The way it feels when there’s no space between your body and his, but you need to get closer.
That feeling is not something that can be bought, borrowed, or stolen, unless you find it in a romance novel.
