More Bittersweets – Cover Reveal for Terry & Alex

Enter to win a Bittersweets Book Cover Bracelet! Weekly bracelets will be given to lucky winners! Just scroll down and leave a comment. Thanks! I’ll announce the winners at the end of each week. xo


Bittersweets grew out of my love for Philadelphia.  Terry Kovac lives in the house at the top of Mount Pleasant Avenue where I lived with my young family in the late seventies. The view of Alden Manor in the distance, the concert pianist practicing Rachmaninoff every morning, the young lovers having an after midnight argument on the way to the K bus, all true. The Acme grocery store around the corner, the used furniture stores, tea shop, The Craft Store and Cheese Shop, bookstores on Germantown Avenue; my favorite haunts almost forty years ago.

When I close my eyes, I can hear the train coming up the hill, stopping at the station. If I looked out the corner of the round window that was really our bedroom on the third floor and not Terry’s living room, I could see my husband trudging up that hill with his briefcase.

Back in those days, I was a weaver, and Earle’s apartment on the first floor was the reconfigured space for my weaving studio.

Our days there were short-lived; a year after we’d arrived, my husband was transferred to Manhattan, and we moved to New Jersey. But I never forgot that brief, glorious time. My wonderful next-door neighbor, who remained a soulmate until her death in August was my first African-American friend. After being raised in white Dearborn, Michigan, it was a privilege and an honor to know her. I cried when I wrote the stories about the neighborhood, the camaraderie couldn’t be matched. I longed to tell her, but it was too late.

Bittersweets is a transition from my usual romance stories; the word steamy is appropriate to describe the tales. The characters are passionate about each other and I allow that to shine through.

Bittersweets – Terry Loves Alex


A one night stand segues to a weekend of passion, leading to a lifetime of romance in Bittersweets – Terry Loves Alex.

 The new lawyer in the office, Iraq veteran Alex Hawthorn is also the new heart throb, but fraternization is strictly forbidden. When Philadelphia lawyer Terry Kovac falls in love with him, she’s ready to give up everything, including her job.

Bittersweets – Brenda and Larry

A trip to the emergency room leads to a whirlwind romance for Philadelphia law student Brenda and ER physician Larry. Head over heels in love with Brenda, nothing can disturb the love he has for her, not even a dark secret from her past.

Bittersweets – Oscar and Lisa

Nurse Lisa Penn’s mother hoped she’d meet a doctor to marry at work, but fate had something else in mind. Never expecting to find romance in the ICU, Lisa knew when patient Oscar Butler was admitted after a near-fatal motorcycle accident, that he might be the love of her life. A chance meeting a few months later would bring them together again. But Oscar’s determination not to rush into love, hoping that taking their time will make it last causes Lisa to have second thoughts. Will waiting for that perfect moment to take their relationship to the next level ever come, or does fate have other ideas?

TBWL2 (1)

The Bride Wore Leather

Lisa stood on her toes to reach Oscar’s lips. Muscle memory clicked in, remembering what the others lips felt like, how perfectly their mouths fit together, the line of their bodies melding. They were getting a second chance. The only thing they didn’t know is what total intimacy would be like, because Oscar had been too afraid. But he wasn’t afraid now.

  1. I’ve so many books in my TBR pile its almost funny… except its sad they accumulate faster than I read. I’ve just started re-reading your entire Memory is the Color Yellow so I get it all in one go! As far as your “steamy” writing goes, please keep them coming. They make the stories even more realistic.
    BTW the bracelet looks amazing. The idea of using the book covers images makes it truly unique and as a jewelry maker (chainmaille & beading) I really appreciate that:)

  2. Loved the stories amd couldnt wait to get to the next to the next…starting with Terry and Alex to Lisa and Oscar. I enjoy being introduced to future characters in the first book and learn more about them in their own story.

  3. Lovely! I appreciate the chance to win. I don’t really care for the new cover and although I like the kiss on the old one, I think the coloring is too pale, but it would attract my attention first.
