Happy Wednesday everyone.
… and welcome September … SPRING at this end of the world. Can’t wait for some warmer weather.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed last week’s snippet from “Echoes of the Past“. Today I’d like “to hook you” with a teaser from “Journey to her Dreams“.
Her body trembled. With angst choking her, she begged him, “Please don’t.”
He took her hands and lifted them over her head as he pressed his body against hers. “Come on, baby. Don’t be like that,” he insisted, tracing her jaw with his lips. “It’s been a while.”
“Please stop. I’m really tired,” she pleaded as she tried to pull her hands out of his.
He looked at her with a slight grin. “Baby, you’re always tired.”
Her efforts to push him away were in vain. His tight grip around her wrists didn’t give her a chance to move out of his arms. Disappointed by him, she dropped her head, denying him her lips.
“I love you, sweetheart,” he murmured.
She was barely able to speak and each word she spoke hurt her throat. “Please,” she begged again, nearly sobbing. “Please don’t.”
He lowered his head, flicking her earlobe with his tongue. “Baby, I want you.”
She knew then she was fighting in vain. He wasn’t going to listen. With his body pressed against hers, his breathing became heavier. Turning her head away even more from him, she closed her eyes as pain shot through her body.
There must be a reason for her dreams…
Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.
Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.
When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love?

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.
