Today’s Hook:

Mark took her hand. His was warm and soft. It gave her a sense of security, though she knew that after today she probably wouldn’t see him again. As she followed him to the door, she imagined having a man at her side. A man watching out and caring for her. Someone to brighten her day. Someone to wake up to in the morning after having touched her all night.

Her gaze wandered over to little Mia. Even though her sister was mature past her eight years, she still needed her. Not only in regard to the simple things in life like cooking, washing, or helping her with school work, but the love a little child needed to feel secure, and someone she could trust. As the only person in the girl’s life, Sophie had become a kind of security blanket for her sister, and Mia needed her more than Sophie needed a man. That meant there was no place for a man right now or in the near future. And she knew all too well that men didn’t stay around to help. They came to have fun and then left. Her own father had. Mia’s father had. And Tyler had done so as well.

BLURB:

The chance to start life all over with the help of a stranger.

Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to her eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago, and it hasn’t been easy. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know and have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator. Settling into their new life, Sophie is still afraid it’s all a mistake.

Mark O’Connor, attorney in Hobart and the bearer of the good news for Sophie and Mia, curses himself for the lack of information about the testator. However, researching the questions gives him an opportunity to see Sophie again, and the more time he spends with the two, the more he realises that his life is missing something. And it’s not his casual lover Linda.

But then there’s Zach, Sophie’s sexy neighbour from across the road… and a very good friend of Clara’s.

Will unravelling the mystery unravel Sophie and Mark’s promise of a future?


 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

Today’s Hook:

The quiet mention of her name brought her back from her thoughts. She nodded, but hesitated when he reached for her hand. “Are you really sure this belongs to us now?”
“Yes, I am.”
“It’s just… it’s…” She shrugged and gazed at the house again. “But I honestly don’t know anybody who would leave us a house.”
As he scooped Mia into his arms, he replied, “I’m pretty sure.”
She frowned, and her heart contracted unbearably for a moment to weigh up the words he had just spoken. Pretty sure?

Today’s Hook:

And then she noticed the first tears on her cheeks. Emotions that had bottled up over the years surfaced, and she wasn’t able to hold back any longer. The cautious thought that life could improve from now on was too overwhelming. Tears fell down her cheeks, but she wasn’t embarrassed.
“Don’t cry, Sophie,” Mia said tenderly to her. “It’ll be all okay.”
Mark came closer and kneeled in front of her. Carefully he wiped away a tear from her cheek. “How about we go inside?” he asked quietly with a gentle smile that made her yearn for a man’s touch. That special touch which had been missing from her life for so long. She gazed at him and wondered how it would be to have someone else in her life. A man who shared a gentle touch or a kiss, a kind word or a well needed hug. Sophie had dated less than a handful of young men, because looking after her eight-year-old sister on her own made it difficult to have a social life. But she’d never even consider complaining. She and Mia loved each other as much as they needed each other. Even more so since their mother had passed away. Sophie hoped this would be their chance, a chance of a better life. And glancing at Mia, staring wide-eyed at the cottage, Sophie knew she felt the same way.

Today’s Hook:

Hesitantly, she nodded. “Yes, sweetie, I hope so.”
Mark took the suitcase from the boot of his car and walked towards the house, opened the gate, and placed the girls’ belongings next to the fence. He turned, and Sophie made no effort at hiding the struggle with emotions.
“That’s it. This is Forty-Six Chestnut Avenue,” he told them.
It was all too much for her. She sat down onto her suitcase and took everything in. In front of her stood an old-fashioned English cottage. A narrow path ahead of her led to two worn out steps and up to the arched entrance. Tucking a strand of hair behind her ear, she shifted her gaze over the little house. Multi-pane windows with shutters and flower boxes in front. Beautiful. Though the flowers seemed long dead, Sophie recognised a lot of potential. The garden was true to the cottage in style but looked wild and unattended. It was in need of a lot of work. She looked up and saw a chimney and instantly thought about cold winter evenings in front of the open fire. She’d heard that Hobart was very cold during winter.

Today’s Hook:

Sophie stared at the house. With tears stinging behind her eyelids, she slowly turned around and helped Mia out of the car. The little girl looked delicate and breakable in the unfamiliar environment, even though she wasn’t anywhere near fragile.
Very clever for her age, Mia had seen and gone through a lot, but handled most situations with trust and belief. Sophie wasn’t sure whether that was a good thing or not. Her younger sister undoubtedly had their mother’s looks, with the long, straight blond hair, her bright grey-green eyes, and pale skin. But deep inside, there was a survivor instinct as well. Something she sometimes thought their mother might have lacked.
“Is this our new home, Sophie?” her sister asked quietly.
Hesitantly, she nodded. “Yes, sweetie, I hope so.”

Today’s Hook:

“You’re Mia’s guardian?”
“Yes,” she replied and gently placed a kiss on her sister’s forehead.
He nodded, and by the way he stared ahead, Sophie knew he was pondering her answers.
“I’m Mark.”
“Pardon me?”
Through the mirror, she saw his eyes focussed on them. “My name is Mark. Nobody actually calls me Mr. O’Connor. It feels like my dad is around when I hear that term.”
A smile twitched at the corner of Sophie’s mouth, but she remained silent.
“Ever been to Hobart before?”
She shook her head.
Mark concentrated on the traffic again. He did a couple of turns, and Sophie’s excitement grew stronger. Deep inside she hoped for the house to be close by. It was a beautiful area. So much green around. So many beautiful and colourful gardens.
With a pounding heart, she was glued to the window, her palms moist with sweat.
And then he stopped in front of number sixty-four.

Today’s Hook:

“I’ve already told you. Considering what we’ve inherited, we brought along everything.”
There was this churning in her stomach, and she wasn’t sure what it was all about. It was hard to pinpoint. Anxiousness probably. At least a little. It was a strange city to her, and here she was in a stranger’s car, being driven to an unknown location.
And nervousness.
Yes, he most certainly made her nervous. At least a bit, because Sophie found him very attractive and his sudden need to talk surprised her.
“Parents?” She shook her head without looking at him. It was increasingly apparent to her that either there had been no details on them in the file, or he had been too busy to read it as well.

Today’s Hook:

The drive through Hobart was mostly quiet as Sophie and Mia took in the scenery. It was certainly a hilly place, and Mt. Wellington with its 1270 meters in height, seemed to overlook every little part of this waterfront capital. It was definitely a different atmosphere from Sydney. They drove along the busy streets and, considering how small the town was, the car ride seemed to last forever.
Mr. O’Connor cleared his throat. “So what are the suitcases all about?”
Taken by surprise by the sudden start of a conversation, Sophie looked up and gazed back at him through the mirror. She wondered how old he might be. Even though Mr. O’Connor was dressed up neatly in a grey suit with a matching tie, his tousled blond hair gave him a casual look. But then her gaze drifted down to Mia’s hand clasping hers and resting in the younger girl’s lap.
“Just making conversation,” he clarified with a shrug of his right shoulder as if he knew what she was thinking.
He checked the traffic as he moved into another lane, but their gaze met again in the mirror. His expression told her that he was still waiting for an answer.
“I’ve already told you. Considering what we’ve inherited, we brought along everything.”

Today’s Hook:

The underlying opinion in his words didn’t go past her. They were actually hurtful. Yet, it’d been like it most of her life. People judged her on what they saw. In Sophie’s case, it was a little girl about fifteen years her junior by her side. They were dressed well, but nearly everything was second hand. Sometimes people’s preconception hurt, but often she was able to take it in her stride.
Today, she wasn’t sure. There was something about Mr. O’Connor that she was drawn to.
Sophie’s eyes met his, and she squared her jaw as she tried to keep her composure and stood straight as she corrected him. “All, as in all our belongings.”
He simply nodded. They made their way to the front door and stepped outside the building, following Mr. O’Connor with their suitcases. Two teenage boys walked past them, eager to capture the interest of some girls across the road. Aware of the attention, the girls covered their mouths with their hands and broke into giggles. Sophie’s stomach churned. So many things she had missed out on in life. The little things most took for granted. But it was going to be better from now on, she reminded herself. Better for both of them. She didn’t want Mia to miss out on so many things like she had, and the thought gave her some joy.
