The demons of prior failed marriages haunt them both, and threaten to end things just as they are beginning. When Jake tells Eve he is falling in love with her, Eve refuses to believe it can last. Returning to Newport, the hollowness of her existence exposed, she must confront her fears before she loses Jake forever.

This A.L Parks's Second novel. And Like first one,I fell in love this one too! She created perfection!The Book was spectacular!
This is the best Christmas book ever! Giving a Chance for love on Christmas? I was emotionally dazed! I loved every character she created.Of course exes not in there. Also I hated Amber.I know that she's young but can she thought her mother? She's just thinking being a big sister. She cut her mother when they talked! This is awful. Eve is the victim not her father! Also When Jake talk about her ex, I guessed that his ex not the woman who devoted her husband.I thought she's not wife person(?).I feel Eve,you know. She's always abandoned from the ones she loves.Her mother,father,husband and her children...And now She's so afraid to lose Jake.Because of the afraids she's having nightmares.

The anger in her started to dissipate, and tears rolled down her cheeks.  “I’m desperate for you to stay, Eve.  I cannot imagine you not being here.  What can I do to convince you to give us a chance?  To have an even better life here - with me?  I love you so much.”
“You’ll get over it, Jake.  Trust me.  You may love me now, but what you feel will change.  And then you will leave.”
“Why?  Because that’s what your ex-husband did?” Jake stepped back from her, looking at her with incredulity.
“Because that is what everyone has done, Jake."

 I am just starting in this crazy world of writing and publishing. Lately, however, there are just too many characters in my head begging me to tell their here I am. Writing, publishing, sharing and, hopefully, entertaining. I love a great love story, but really want to tell a story with an edge; characters who are imperfect, trying to find the perfect love.

Strangers is my debut novel, and will be released on September 6, 2013. I will have another novel, The Return, with an anticipated release date of November 1, 2013. I have been focusing mainly on short stories, but have felt a need to get to know the characters more in-depth, and in turn, tell more of their stories. I have some fairly interesting people living in my head!
I have my own blog (, where I review books, and discuss my new projects. I also contribute to, dedicated to the emerging new adult romance genre. We have great fun over sure to check us out!

I currently live outside Washington D.C. with my family. We spend many hours exploring the area and the deep history of this beautiful land, while experiencing as much of life's wonders as possible. I have traveled abroad and lived in almost every corner of the U.S., and hope my writing reflects various cultures, people, and places.
