Um, Holy Crap

Check out who's on the front page of "Nights & Weekends," the online entertainment mag. I subbed "Sundial" to Margaret Marr for review, knowing she's a fan of romance and ebooks. She accepted it for review based on the strength of my Scoundrel excerpt. I just didn't expect...gushing.

"Sundial" won the "Through the Garden Gate" short story contest held by The Wild Rose Press, and I can see why. It's a clever, spicy-sweet, and heart-breaking love story about two characters who know what the future holds--a future that can't be changed.

The story reminded me a little of The Bridges of Madison County--only without the whole extramarital affair plotline. You have two people who are meant to be together--but, for all intents and purposes, it seems like an impossibility. You'll even wonder how on Earth Ms. Lofty is going to work this problem out, and it's a testament to her talent that she's able to bring the story to a credible conclusion.

With its heated love scenes and a shattering, unexpected parting, "Sundial" will have you holding your breath, wondering how Amber and Mark can ever be together in their respective futures. If you're a lover of romances and believe in the impossible made possible, you'll enjoy "Sundial" as much as I did.

Live baby, live,
Now that the day is over.
I got a new sensation
In perfect moments--
Impossible to refuse.
