Thanks, ladies for the kind welcome!
Wow! Fantastic! I'm grinning and singing an off-key song as a result of the joy you all have given me. Thank you!
Here's an excerpt from Melody's Song, "a love song will lead two opposing forces to bond in harmony" a best seller at Cobblestone-Press.com
Melody Haney has an angelic singing voice, but denies the gift after her son dies. Out of obligation, when she is asked to sing to hospitalized children she agrees. Accused of stealing drugs from the oncology unit she pushes away the one man who would stand by her.
Dr. Devon Siegal, pediatric oncologist, doesn’t believe in coincidences. Even when faced with evidence that could damn her, he continues to believe in Melody’s innocence. He has faith she will tell him everything and love will prevail.
Devon popped one (a wipe) from the container. “I’ve seen Phantom a couple of times, and I swear I don’t remember that song. What is the name of it?”
“Luca, the music director, altered the base of a couple of Verdi songs and created his own lyrics. They added it the program as Canzone da Infelicità or Misery Song.” She crushed the wipe in the palm of her hand and met his gaze. “So you like it?”
<st1>Devon</st1> kissed her. Not with the tentative searching type of kiss she envisioned while she’d been on stage, but a deep, full, head-on kiss. He gave her a lip-lock which sent her mind to spinning and her knees to lose all ability to hold her upright. His arm remained around her waist, thankfully, or she would have fallen to the ground like a 1950’s actress.
He softly whispered, “Whoa.”
“I take that as a yes.” She kissed him, a questioning type of kiss. She didn’t like this man’s personality, but they had a connection. A type of chemical bond that drew them together and they mixed very well. “Is your house nearby?” <o></o>
Thanks, Hollie, I'll post an x..
Soul mates, everlasting love, is this a folktale we keep alive because we want to believe in true love?
Museum curator, Emily Lucent, specializes in ancient Scottish swords. When she hears a highland voice calling to her, she falls in love with the disembodied spirit seven days before her wedding.
Part of the Guardian Angel squad, Netzach is her watcher. He loves Emily desperately, and defies his deities to have her.
Her fiancé, Jon Hart, M.D., serves evil. He spouts words of love until Emily agrees to marry him. She wants out of the engagement, he wouldn’t release her. Vengeance and anger took him to Scotland.
Will Emily survive Jon’s sharp blade and be reunited with her watcher? Can love, true love, survive centuries?
Currently, the sofa remained vacant. And it remained empty, as her pocketbook would be after this session. She recalled Jon’s words about the hoax. Just leave. Give the fortune teller a hundred bucks and call the prophecy an adventure.
<o></o>“Well, I never. Emily, the watcher said I’m influencing you, and I should leave so you can relax and concentrate. Do you want me to leave you alone?” Mikhail tapped a righteous rhythm with her foot onto the hard wood floor.
“Well, I, um, I guess that would be fine.” Emily continued to stare at the sofa, as if the penetration would create an image. Fine! She didn’t mind being left alone with… nothing.
“Ok, I’ll be just outside the door, in the lobby. If you need anything just call out, and I’ll be in here with holy water or a silver bullet or whatever it takes. Uh huh, you can laugh all you want, Zach, but you harm one hair on this little lady’s head, and I’ll bring in my box of goodies and do some damage to your beautiful face.” With this being said, the fortune teller, with an attitude, launched a flamboyant lift from her chair.
“He’s beautiful?” Emily narrowed her eyes, and tried to focus on the sofa.
“That’s right, missy. He’s preening at the compliment. I’ll not let his handsome image influence me one bit. You hear that, Mr. Watcher?” Mikhail uncrossed her arms, strutted out the door, and firmly shut it behind her.
Mikhail is the heroine of Believe, an excellent suspensful story containing a great deal of believability.
