The authors of new contemporary romance anthology For the Love of Murphy answer one question:
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I like to sew, play with my kids, read, and design web pages. I'm a ball of fire, I know.
Falling For You by Michelle Ziegler
Darci’s ready to move on. Too bad the dating pool stinks. Until, a ghost from her past resurfaces—the man she missed out on in college.
Andrew was the one man she’d always loved, but neither of them ever made a move. But, old feelings aren’t the only thing resurfacing of late. Darci’s ex comes crawling back at the most inappropriate time, and with all the testosterone flying, she might not end up with either man.
London Saint James:
I love to hang out with my family and friends as much as possible. Watch a good movie while cuddle up on the couch with my sexy man. Listen to music. Read. Relaxing things, really.
The Shamrock Incident by London Saint James
Florist, Marissa Carmichael isn’t usually a klutz, but she’s in a hurry and having a bad day. In her haste, she loses her balance and tumbles from the back room of her shop, arms flailing. Her less than graceful entrance halted by a headfirst crash into a display case chock full of silk flowers.
Trey Cleary didn’t think his day could get any worse, until he finds. himself picking the side view mirror of his BMW up from the ground. On a mission to do something about it, he locates the flower shop matching the name on the back of the van that mangled his ‘baby'. But, his car is forgotten when a beautiful woman bursts into the room like an out of control whirling dervish, and takes one mother of a wipeout into the shop’s counter. Coming to her aid brings out the hero in him like no one he’s ever encountered, and leaves him with a need to know more.
For Marissa and Trey, this just might be the one time it pays to be unlucky.
I guess it depends on the season. In winter, I pretty much want to hibernate until spring. However, once May rolls around, I spend as much time as possible (which amounts to every weekend) at my seasonal camp in Upstate NY. Camper, campfires, friends, my hammock, the woods, sunshine, and peace. Sheer perfection. Summer is also softball season, and despite my advanced years, I still try to convince my body it can handle one more season. Beyond that, I'm a music junkie, so most of the time I have headphones stuffed in my ears... Not all that exciting, but it works for me.
A Slippery Slope by Rebecca Hart
Anne Montgomery is psyched for her girl’s only weekend, despite her friends’ choice of vacation locale—the snowy slopes of Harris Peak Ski Resort—where someone as notoriously accident prone as she has no business being. When Murphy’s Law finally catches up with her, Anne is forced to consider there may be times when it pays to be unlucky.
Lisa A. Adams:
I am an ex-teacher who has left the school system full time, but can't seem to leave it for good. I now work as a substitute teacher and tutor at several schools. When I'm not at work or writing, I'm watching one of my five children perform in their various extracurricular activities, playing mom taxi, reading, and quilting. I can't sew clothes for anything, but I can make a gorgeous quilt.
No Wrong Turns by Lisa A. Adams
Jessica Brannah is escaping from her last heartbreak with a loaded car and a new address. But, when Murphy's Law finds her stranded in a back country town, she realizes there's no outrunning love.
When I’m not writing, and I have a single spare moment that isn’t taken up with my typical wife and mom responsibilities, I love to read. It’s my passion. It’s why I became a writer, because I write the books I want to read that haven’t been written yet. And every so often, I can be found at the local dive bar for Friday night karaoke.
Coffee and Cufflinks by Annabelle Blume
Fresh out of a failed relationship and exhausted by a constant barrage of fiascos at work, Olivia Johnson doesn’t see the man of her dreams standing right in front of her. She tells herself the morning coffee meet-ups with Daren are nothing but coincidence, but even she can’t deny his unequivocal attractiveness. When a night entertaining clients takes a turn for the worst, and Daren shows up where she least expects him, failure starts to look more like fate.
