Book Blurb:
Rebecca Lorenzo, the young widow of a Hollywood actor who was killed by a crazed fan, is struggling to raise their young daughter, Wendy. Rebecca is embittered that God allowed her precious husband to die. She has turned her back on Him. Rebecca and Wendy move from L.A. to Rebecca's hometown on the Oregon coast. Due to a miscommunication, Rebecca mistakenly believes she can buy a Victorian house there. She hopes to cocoon herself in the security of her "safe" hometown. Rebecca meets the handsome, enigmatic homeowner, Mark Simons, and learns of his plans to tear down the house. Mark, a psychiatrist, is attempting to raise money to build a halfway house on the property, and he is admittedly a workaholic. He believes this project is God's will for him. Mark refuses to budge when Rebecca approaches him about selling the house. As Rebecca and Mark struggle to battle their individual demons from the past, they also struggle to resist their growing love for each other.

"Though he is a decade older than her, August and Rebecca met when he was filming in Freemont, Oregon, Winter Rose. They marry, move to Los Angeles, and have a daughter Wendy. However, their Hollywood love story ends tragically when a crazed fan kills August.

Rebecca returns to her hometown where her sister still lives. She wants to move into the Winter Rose where her memories with August are perfect; besides she can make some money leasing the place to Galaxy Productions that want to do a sequel there. However, owner Dr. Mark Simons plans to tear down the place and replace it with a halfway house for his patients. The psychiatrist believes this is God's command as a penance for him not being there for his mom when she committed suicide. While he seeks God's approval, she rejects God for allowing a bad thing to happen to a good person. Though they argue over the house and differ over God, they fall in love, but that seems not strong enough to form a relationship when their individual pasts haunt them." ~ Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME AMAZON REVIEWER

Free to Love is Featured in Cold Coffee Magazine

One year after Joanna Sullivan's husband Kyle, a fireman, dies after saving two young children while fighting a house fire, Joanna makes a desperate attempt to start over. She moves to a new town, embarks on a new career as a field guide at the local coastal aquarium, and attempts to refurbish the dilapidated duplex she's purchased. Then Austin, her husband's brother, visits unexpectedly. He offers to stay and help her with the much needed repairs. Joanna soon discovers, however, that Austin's presence is proving more disturbing than helpful. His resemblance to Kyle is uncanny, thwarting her resolve to put her husband's memory to rest. Worse, she is strongly attracted to Austin. Austin, a veterinarian, shares Joanna's love of nature, and the two find much common ground as they team up to help clean up the beaches and save the native birds and wildlife from the encroachment of civilization. Can Joanna let go of her grief and love Austin in his own right? Or will he always remain the ghost of her husband?

Note From Author:
Welcome to my Author’s Page on Books In Sync. Please come in and kick back for a while. We’re in for a fun visit.
Many of my fans ask me how I got started writing. Like so many authors, my interest in writing dates back to my childhood. I grew up an only child, so I had my share of solitude to spin stories in my head. At the tender age of ten, I mailed a short story to a contest for kids, and later received my first rejection letter. Enter my new reality as a would-be writer!
Years later, after launching forth on a nursing career, getting married, and becoming a mom to our two sons, the writing bug bit me again! And now 20-some years after that, I’m happy to say I’ve published several romance novels for teens and adults. My short stories and articles have also been printed in national magazines.
On my “Books” page, you’ll find a list of my titles, along with their covers and a sampling of book reviews that have appeared on the Net. Dive in! My “Bio” page is filled with more information about me. Check out the snapshots of my husband, our granddaughter, our two handsome sons and their lovely wives, and our pampered cat, a “rescue” kitty we adopted about 12 years ago. Finally, please stop by my guestbook and drop me a line. I always love to hear from my readers!
