Life is More Than Candy Hearts

A Valentine's Day collection of short stories by Michele Richard, Lisa Bilbrey, And Laura Braley
Changes of the Heart:
When you're left with nothing at all, all you have left is to rebuild. Can losing everything bring two people together to make a new family?

Gabe Lost his family on 9/11 and himself in the process. Juliette was left homeless with a small child after the child's father abandoned them.

Will an icy collision bring these two to a happily ever after or are they too broken?
Life's Unexpected Gifts:
With the recent loss of her father, Emma Dawson struggled to get through each day. When she starts receiving gifts from a secret admirer, she’s forced to reevaluate everything she thought she knew.

Will she be able to open her heart to the mystery man of her dreams, or will a blast from the past sweep her off her feet? Could they be one in the same?
Smoky Rooms:
Chance Lassiter is a former rock star on the verge of a new start, after he let the excesses of the music industry lure him into ruin the first time around.

Lindsay Brandon is a former actress trying to rediscover the person she once was before a change of circumstances forced her to make a decision that destroyed her spirit.

A series of mistakes and bad choices have brought their lives to where they are. Can a chance meeting filled with introspection, one lonely night in a smoke-filled corner bar, help them accept the mistakes from their pasts and move toward the future together?


All three of these stories by different authors merge together into a fantastic collection of romance.  Each character is compelling and easy to relate to.  They all have obstacles in their lives to overcome to move forward with their lives and that alone keeps the pages turning.  With clever writing, interesting characters and three authors who bring their own flavor of romance to life, Life is More Than Candy Hearts deserves to be read anytime, all year long!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
