Devastated by circumstances beyond her
control, Sophie Ryan’s life rips her from the arms of her first love, Jack.
With only memories of their lost love, she’s forced to start over in a new
town; surviving on her own for the first time since he left. Trying to begin
her new life, fate decides a different direction for her, causing her to make a
choice she never thought she’d have to.
Unsure of commitment after his failed
engagement, Chase Mitchell finds himself stuck on a path of failed conquests
and late nights at the bar. That is until he finds a pair of mesmerizing green
eyes sitting in his usual spot. Something about this quiet girl forces him to
question everything he has ever thought about love.
As Sophie looks down at the fork that’s
presented in her path, will she choose the right direction? Will she be able to
move towards the arms of the man who stands in front of her? Or will she choose
to keep her promise to the one life forced her to leave behind?
I grew up in Texas and moved to Florida when I met the love of my life 13 years ago. I wrote my first poem when I was five and it was about my love affair with pickles. I still love pickles but I like to think my writing has grown since then. I absolutely adore anything to do with books whether it's writing them or devouring them in one sitting. I live on music, love, and sweet tea. I am known for my silly but blunt personality. I've been lucky enough to find the love of my life, marry him and now we're working on our happily ever after. He inspires me in everything I do, but especially in telling love stories. I'm an ordinary girl living an extraordinary love and I'm so happy I get to share it with the world through my writing. I can't wait for you to read my debut novel, The Promise!

9)I love to use swear
