When two lonely strangers meet in a bar on Valentine’s Day, they take passionate solace in each other’s arms, little knowing that they will soon meet again as business associates.

Karen Samuels has sworn off emotionally unavailable men, deciding her time will be much better spent building her fledgling graphic art company.

David Anderson, a widower of seven months is still deep in mourning and battling survivor’s guilt. Determined to open the restaurant that had been his wife’s dream, and on the recommendation of his best friend, he hires a graphic artist, sight unseen, to create the perfect logo.

SHE knows his heart belongs to another.

HE knows he could give her his heart, but he doesn’t deserve to be happy again.

THEY know that falling in love will only bring more agony and despair.

But, FATE knows otherwise.

Here's an excerpt:

The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre

The muffled bu-bump of what sounded like a door shutting jolted Karen from the black void of sleep and her eyes snapped open. For several seconds confusion reigned until her mind registered the familiar: the white wicker chair with pink and aqua floral print cushion in the corner, her latest bargain bookstore purchases stacked on the floor next to it, her stuffed-full-with-clothes-and-shoes closet with its door swung wide.

She blinked several times and rolled onto her back allowing her head to continue the arc all the way through, hoping the light streaming through the old-fashioned sheers on her window would wake her more fully. Her brain sloshed in her cranium and the dull ache spiked into a sharp throbbing pain. As she winced, her gaze fell to the pillow next to hers and landed on an unexpected dent, the exact shape and size of another’s head. In spite of her pounding brain, she jackknifed into a sitting position and the chill air of the room pebbled her naked flesh. Her heart thudded against her ribs as trepidation snaked through her body and mind. “Whose head? How? When?”

* * *

David scraped his hand over the right side of his face and jaw, massaging the tense, sore muscles underneath his stubbled skin. At the same time, he turned the steering wheel and made the right turn onto the residential street that housed the townhouse he’d just fled from in agitation and shame. His eyes were dry from lack of sleep and lack of non-alcoholic liquid nourishment. He’d awakened in a stranger’s bed, the reminder that they’d done more than sleep hanging damp and limp from the end of his spent dick. He’d had sex with a stranger. His stomach churned in revolt. He still couldn’t believe it. An ache of despair formed in his chest. His wife was probably rolling in her grave.

Micro-mini Blurb:
A sizzling, comic fairytale of two sisters, two hunks, and fairy magic. “Good” Delilah is blessed with wealth and the man she’s loved for ages, except he’s more interested in her newfound millions, while “bad” Isadora, is cursed with blurting obscene quips, just when the man she dumped years before swaggers back into her life.

Excerpt (This is from Part Two, the "Bad" sister, Isadora's story):

“I’ve always expected more of you than I have of your silly half sister.” Her mother slid her hand from Isadora’s arm and took a sip of her wine. “It is you who have the beauty and the brains to get us reinstated in the social register,”—Isadora clenched her fists in her lap, but forced the muscles in her face to remain relaxed—“something that I am not convinced Delilah is going to be able to doeven with the money and the catch she’s made in Chas.”

Isadora felt the heat of anger, of frustration, and of her own disappointment in herself rise up inside her like molten lava. She swiveled around and looked at the band. The first chords of “I’ve Got a Crush on You” filled the air.

A second later, a warm hand fell on her shoulder. She started.

“They’re playing our song—shall we dance?” The familiar smooth-as-KahlĂșa voice sent an unwanted thrill through her.

I only dance with men with 9-figures. “I only dance with men with 9-inchers.”

“Isadora!” her mother said.

A very masculine chuckle followed.

Mouth. Shut!

“Well, you’re in luck then.” He took hold of her hand and lifted her from her seat. She finally looked at him. Sam. Samuel Thomas Slade. The devil incarnate. Still gorgeous as ever. And by the dark tan of his skin and the sun streaks in his chestnut hair, clearly still a slacker scuba dude as well. What a waste.
