Blurb for My Best Friend's Ex

Brooke Janson has loved Garrett Sawyer since she met him on her first day of high school. Now, he’s free to love her too. Except, his ex-wife happens to be her best friend. 

How can Brooke choose between a friend she’s known since kindergarten and the man of her dreams?

Here's a little snippet of the story-

Strolling down the grocery aisle, Brooke Janson spotted a familiar man dressed in black. Garrett Sawyer was the one person in the world, she didn’t expect to meet, see, or run into in a huge superstore.


Memories flooded through her mind, and she adjusted the spaghetti strap of her shirt.  Unable to pull her gaze from his lean, muscular frame encased in a black T-shirt and jeans, she silently wished she’d worn something sexier than an old pair of jeans and a tank top. She glanced down and remembered what she looked like in high school when they met.


As an overweight teen, she’d worked hard to get his attention, had even helped him pass a few classes.  They had become friends, and she’d decided he was everything she ever wanted in a man.


At the end of the school year, he’d left for college. After graduating, he’d returned. They had reconnected at a party where she introduced him to her best friend, Janet. They started dating and married not long after her first year of community college. Sadly, less than a year later, it ended in a divorce because she cheated on him with one of her classmates.


Suddenly unsure how to handle the situation, she choked out his name. To her ultimate horror, he turned.


His forehead wrinkled into a frown before he smiled and pushed his cart down the aisle. “Hello, Brooke.”



Love this story because it shows that you should never give up on the one you love. They may someday be available to love you too.

Tourist Highlight - Rest Area in @SouthDakota #Travel #Artwork #Photos of Dignity Statue

Now some may ask what can be so special about a rest area other than it being a great place to go to the bathroom and change out drivers. 

This South Dakota rest area is very special. Not only does it provide clean rest room, but it also includes a small museum and an awesome piece of artwork.


Dignity Statue



Over 50ft tall, this native Dakota woman stands on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. She was designed to honor the Lakota and Dakota people. Located off interstate 90 near Chamberlain, SD, it is a quick on and off stop.

My husband and I missed the exit but noticed the Dignity Statue on the bluff and did a u-turn at the next exit to go back and check out this incredible piece of artwork.

Once I stepped into the visitor center, I was equally enthralled by the displays inside the building. A small museum told the journey of Lewis and Clark. I spent over an hour filming the different displays that included the animals which call South Dakota their home and a display of the items Lewis and Clark took on their journey on the Missouri River. I was so excited about being able to share this with my friends. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way I deleted the video or it is hiding somewhere on my computer and is alluding me.

Even though, I can’t show you the inside of the visitor center, I hope you will enjoy and appreciate the amazing pictures of the Dignity Statue and the grounds around her that overlook the Missouri River.

Hope you have a chance to visit this amazing place someday.

Traveling - What's On the Side of the Road? #Badlands @SouthDakota #NationalParks #Travel


Have you been to South Dakota? 

Driven down highway 90 on your way to Mount Rushmore or maybe Devil's Tower? 

Did you see the signs for the Badlands? 

The loop road is one of the best ways to take a slight detour and discover a world of wonders. 

Most people believe that the trip will only take them a half-hour or less, but the amazing landscape quickly draws you in with its beauty.



The unique vistas reach the sky and leave you eager to see more. With every turn, there is something new to see. The color near the yellow mounds created by the geological scenery turns the trip into a happy hunting grounds for new delights.

Unable to resist the spectacular terrain in front of you, the desire to absorb the beauty prompts you to stop. The many photo opportunities compel a person to take not only one but multiple pictures. 



Excited by the view, the landscape compels you down short trails that lead to treasures that relaxes and draws you in with its natural beauty. And don’t forget the chance encounters with wildlife. Big horn sheep, bison, prairie dogs and other animals call this land home.

So, if you are in South Dakota, and see a sign to visit the Badlands, take a few minutes, or perhaps a few hours, to discover a place that will inspire you to take more trips off the beaten path.

Want to see more pictures?

All the best,

A #Betrayal Hurts - CFO's Affair by @AuthorTinaGayle #Romance #HotRead






Genre: Contemporary Romance with strong women fiction elements

Four women...
One fatal car wreck...
Everyone's lives changed...





CFO's Affair



Sylvia Donovan is emotionally wounded from the unexpected death of her husband and still haunted by their last conversation: his request for a divorce and his confession of love for another woman. Her husband gone, her only daughter off to college, Sylvia faces the challenges of learning to live alone and move on with her life.

Vince Wilshire, enchanted with Sylvia, is more than willing to do what it takes to capture the heart of the hurting and untrusting Sylvia.

Can he help her forget the past and make her believe in love again?




Excerpt:




"What is this? Are you guys ganging up on me?" Sylvia ignored the man beside her and glanced in the rear view mirror, checking to make sure her tears hadn't caused any lasting effect.


A warm hand landed on her shoulder and Vince toyed with her hair. "Not at all, I like the idea of entering the building with a gorgeous woman on my arm."


"Right," she protested and stuffed her phone into her purse before turning to stare into his bedroom-brown eyes. The spark in their depths had her reevaluating her impression of the man.


Yes, he had the face and body to rival every other Casanova in the world, but he also had a sense of humor. That alone sent a shiver of awareness through her. She fought the desire gathering in her stomach and waved her hand at him so he'd move out of the way, letting her exit the car. "Did Knox make you wait out here in the parking lot to make sure I would come inside?"


Vince grinned and held her door open while she stepped onto the asphalt. His gaze fell to her legs.


She stared at her new, high-heel, red pumps and silently prayed she wouldn't land face first in the dirt when she tried to walk across the pitted parking lot in them.


A low whistled sounded beside her. "Man, are you ever hot.”


She ignored the comment and didn't turn until she heard the car door slamming closed. "And there's not a woman you've ever met you haven't wanted."


He slapped a hand over his chest. "Oh, you injure me. If I had a beautiful woman like you on my arm, I'd be content for eternity."


 "Or until the next pretty face walked by." Sylvia tossed her dark auburn hair off her shoulder and walked toward the front entrance without glancing back. The man is entirely too cocky.


 He hurried to her side and slipped his arm through hers. "Not a chance, no woman can compete with you."

Family #Spirits #Series by @AuthorTinaGayle #Romance





Fallen Leaves Blurb -


As autumn comes to the Winston estate in Ohio, Amber Harrison learns further lessons in her new position as keeper for the spirits and ghosts who haunt the estate--and further lessons in love, too. She and her love, Carter Miller, grapple with the fears and passions of new love, while caught up in the storm of ancient family drama.


This is the second book in the unfolding saga of the psychics and talents associated with the Winston estate, a sheltered place where past, present, and future are woven into a single dramatic tapestry of love and desire. The tale spans multiple generations, multiple eras, and offers something special for all ages of reader. A sexy, erotic winner, with an assortment of couples to appeal to most tastes.

Excerpt:


“How long before you install the new cabinets?”


He turned on the ladder. His dark brown eyes captured her, engulfing her in an encompassing warmth. She melted under his heated gaze, which ran from the top of her head to the white socks on her feet. He lifted a brow at her attire, but he didn’t comment on her pink sweat suit.


“With the old cabinets out of the way, I need to knock down this wall and tear up the flooring. The electrical work is next on the agenda.” He climbed off the ladder, yanked off his gloves, and slid a hand through his thick, wavy hair.


“It might be awhile before we install the new cabinets. Right now, we’re simply working to remove the old stuff so we can start fresh.” He smiled, which didn’t hide the dark circles under his eyes or the fatigue in the slump of his shoulders.


“There’s no hurry. If you’re busy with something else, this can wait until your Dad and Mattie come home next week.”


“No, Dad doesn’t want her dealing with this mess.” Carter unbuckled his tool belt and placed it on a workbench. “I promised him I’d have it done.”


“Is Grant helping?” Amber stepped around several pieces of sheetrock and stray bits of wood, to the bottom of the stairs.


He walked to the backdoor. “Friday, his classes are over at noon.”


With his hand resting on the doorknob, he appeared anxious to leave. “I’m headed to lunch, and then I need to drop by the office for a while. Are you sure you’re okay here by yourself?”

Amber toyed with the idea of saying no. She missed the taste of his lips and the strength of his arms, but she nodded instead. “Yes, I’m fine.”

After opening the door, he paused. “I guess I’ll see you later.”

She waved and turned to head to her room, satisfied she’d at least gotten him to talk. Her leaden feet trudged up the steps. Unexcited, she contemplated her latest assignment from the family council. How could she achieve such an impossible task?
