Rock and Roll star JC Danby’s world was turned upside down eight months ago when his wife left town. Brandy has sent him a text here and an email there, but no one knows where to find her. Guessing she would never miss her uncle’s funeral, JC flies home from his world tour to confront his wife and learn the reason for her disappearance.

Leaving JC like she did was wrong, but at the time Brandy believed she had no choice. She not only left to protect herself, she also did it to protect JC. But she worries her abandonment has done too much damage. Uncertain if he will be able to forgive her, she is positive of one thing—their lives will never be the same.

Firefighter Brock Danby has been helping his sister with her children the last few years since her husband’s death. In doing so, he’d put his social life on hold. Now that his sister is married and settled, he wants to find that someone special, but at thirty-one years old the single scene doesn’t appeal to him. Picked to be photographed for a Hot Fireman calendar, Brock is surprised to see Juliana Murray, the prettiest girl in his high school class, is the photographer.

Juliana moved away for college and to pursue her photojournalist career, but recently returned to Houston and opened a photography studio. Seeing Brock again, she can’t get over how gorgeous he still is. Their attraction is instant, hot, and leaves both of them wondering if they can be as good out of bed as they are in it.

Veterinarian Levi Danby has been devoted to making his clinic a success, but something, or rather someone, is missing from his life. He’s both surprised and guarded when his ex-girlfriend Candice Purdy shows up at his clinic claiming she wants a second chance.

Five years ago Candice made the stupidest mistake of her life when she left Levi and moved to New York in hopes of getting her big break on Broadway. She prays the pain she sees in Levi’s eyes means he still loves her, but she knows the road to forgiveness will not be an easy one. If only she can make him remember the good times they shared.

ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND LION - A second interview with Monroe

Today, please help me welcome back Bethany Averie. Her first book - ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND LION was released this week! Yay, Bethany. Congratulations!!

She is visiting us again to give us another glimpse into her hero Monroe Dubay! 


Interview With Monroe Part 2
by Bethany Averie

Welcome to my imagination…make yourself at home.

A disembodied voice growls, “Are you going to keep me waiting all day?”

“Sorry about that, Monroe. Do come in. Folks, I’d like you to meet Monroe Dubay, the hero of my upcoming debut release. Please remind my readers about yourself.”

An over six-foot tall, long, blond-haired man walks in. He sits on a wingback chair across from me and frowns. “I am a type of shape shifter called a man-beast. That is, in my human form I’m completely human. In my lion form, I’m larger than the lions you see in the zoo. I don’t rely on any moon phases, and I can communicate in human-speech as a lion.”

“Thanks, Monroe.”

He steeples his fingertips and assesses me. “A lot’s happened since you last interviewed me.”

“Yes. That was a while back, wasn’t it?”

“Indeed. Why did you call me back?”

I shrug.  “I wanted to know if your mood had changed from last time. You were really angry at me 
because you and Sasha’s story wasn’t out.”

“You finally got around to getting us to the public.”

“But it’s worth the wait, isn’t it? Soul Mate Publishing has been good to us.”

His features soften. “I must say, I rather like your editor. She seemed to understand the story.”

“I’d say so. From the time I pitched it to her, I had a good feeling about her response. It’s great that it turned out as well as it did.”

“Quite.”

“So, are you nervous?”

“Why would I be?” He shifts in his chair. “Saying that makes you sound like Bast.”

“Y’all are best buds, admit it.”

“I’ll admit nothing.”

“Come on, Monroe. You two are practically brothers.”

Monroe refuses to meet my gaze. “I suppose.”

I grin. “How’s Sasha?”

“You’re the writer, you ought to know.”

“Humor me.”

He shrugs. “She’s all right, from what I can tell.”

I giggle. “She’s not the loudmouth you are.”

“I’m not a loudmouth.”

“Okay, you’re right. You’re just opinionated.”

He steeples his fingers and rests them against his mouth. “Shouldn’t one be certain of what they think?”

“Good point. In any case, I appreciate you coming out again.”

“You’re welcome. I wish you and your readers a good day. Do encourage them to pick up the story now that it's released.”

I smile. “I think you just did that for me.”

He stands and holds out a hand to me. “Until next we meet, Ms. Averie.”

I shake his hand. “Bye, Monroe.” He disappears into the shadows of my imagination.



Blurb for All’s Fair In Love & Lion by Bethany Averie:
High school Junior year English teacher, Sasha Brighton has always dreamt of having her own prince charming. But she doesn’t believe it’s possible. After all, fairy-tales are just stories, not reality.
However, when Monroe Dubay steps out of her dreams and into her apartment, she’s forced to rethink the whole concept of what’s real and what’s fairy-tale. But believing means she’ll have to choose between everything she knows, or give it all up for the unknown.
Meanwhile, another female from his world doesn’t think Sasha should have Monroe; and she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to stop Sasha and Monroe from having their happily-ever-after. No matter what.



Bethany Averie is the second-to-the-youngest of eight children. As a kid, she loved fairy tales, especially Cinderella and Beauty & The Beast. Bethany still loves fairy tales, Greek & Roman Mythology, and romance. She resides in the Lone Star State with her real life hero, and a shadow who calls her ‘Mom’. When not writing, Bethany enjoys time with family and friends and dreaming up new worlds. You can reach Bethany at her blog where she blogs about books, writing, and whatever strikes her fancy. She can also be found on Twitter and Facebook.

BEST BREAK UP SONGS EVER!!

Everyone who frequents here knows I'm terrible at keeping up with my blog...I barely have enough time to write, so my blog gets neglected...But today I want to post the best break-up songs I've found.

I need to find the best break-up for a project I'm working on.

DH's favorite is DUST IN THE WIND.



I don't know where I've been living, but I had never heard Michael Jackson's WHO'S LOVING YOU until this past week. The song really speaks to those who treated someone badly. I found this young boy's YouTube clip. He's amazing!



My brother was sweet enough to pick me up last Monday (and bring me back on Saturday) so I could spend the week with my folks and we heard LAST REQUEST on the way. He asked if I'd ever heard it and I'm like, No. It had a great beat to it... so when I got to my folks', I went to YouTube to listen and realized just how sad it was...this would be a guy's break up song, for sure.



And anyone who knows me, knows country is not my genre of choice (except I do love some country), but I found A LITTLE BIT STRONGER by accident and instantly liked it. Hope you do too!


Please leave me a message if you have one I haven't posted here. The lyrics count so much to convey exactly what I'm trying to say! So I'm searching for the best break-up song.
