Series: Sistas Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult
Publication Date: August 1, 2016

Wishing for death while living through hell, Gabriella is rescued off the rocks of a Scottish loch at the lowest moment of her life by the hot, humorous Edward and the sexy, staid Liam. The two men nurse the despondent woman back to health while teaching her how to pick up the pieces of her life. Both are captivated by her and vie for her attention.

Friendships are formed and secrets revealed. One man will become her lover, while the other becomes her best friend. Together, they have a past they cannot change, a present they must live through, and a future yet to be discovered. However, every time things appear to settle down for the trio, fate deals another blow, testing their trust and faith in each other and the love they have created.

Gabriella discovers the beauty of Scotland and life anew as she learns that trust is a two-way street that can either strengthen bonds or destroy relationships. Will she accept all that she learns or continue to believe she is betraying the memories she ran from?

Fantastic read!! Loved it from start to finish. ... The book was romantic, sad and funny. It made me laugh and cry. The story kept me intrigued and I just wanted to keep on reading as there was never a dull moment. I highly recommend reading this book. ~ Liz Douglas, Amazon Reviewer

Deleted Scene

​I was so excited the first time I sent a book to my editor. I waited for her to tell it was fabulous only a few spelling mistakes. I counted the hours until I had it back. I opened it and saw the edits and my heart sunk. My manuscript it looks like it had been massacred. I cried and thought what am I doing? Then I stared to read through the edits. She moved a lot of things around, changed tenses and made sure the facts were accurate. She removed all my punctuation and added her own and deleted fifty pages and apparently redundant information.

​Nothing could have prepared me when she cut out a scene. Don’t forget this is my baby and I love every part of my creation. I worked on my first book for a year and the scene they were cutting out took a lot of thought, writing and rereading to get to my editors and they were cutting them. Really? Did she not read the line before, or the line after? Oh, those scenes so needed to be in my book.

​So, I walked away for twenty-four hours. I thought about my job working with special needs teenagers. How I had learned when a kid attacks it isn’t personal. They are trying to communicate and either I’m not understanding or I can’t fulfill their request, which makes them angry. I decided to take the same approach with my book. I read it my way and her way and you know what she was one hundred percent right.

​Enjoy a delete scene no one has ever read. ​

The men got ready in in Edward’s suite, while Gabriella dried her long hair and put some makeup on to cover the dark circles that had become part of her everyday appearance. She wondered if she would be able to talk openly with her new friends about the death of her family. She wasn’t sure that was a bridge she could cross right now; besides it was kind of nice to have people not look at her with pity in their eyes. Everyone she knew was constantly waiting for her to fall apart. There was a certain freedom in the fact the Liam and Edward knew nothing about her tragedy, and she felt like she could breathe

​Okay so in all fairness it’s not that bad. Sure, it has a couple of run-on sentences, nothing that couldn’t be fixed with edits. But now no one will ever know Gabriella’s appearance was affected by the all-consuming loss. I hope you get a chance to pick up my book and judge for yourself if it should have been deleted. Happy reading!
