Snippet Sunday – DEFYING RULES – 09/04/2017 #romance #love #SnippetSunday #amwriting



This is the second book in the Fermosa Bay series, which, I’m trying to get onto the market as soon as possible.

DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.

This is still a WIP, so critique away.

Thanks … and enjoy 🙂


Ethan loved the view and never got enough of it. He loved the contrast of the blue ocean meeting the luscious green of the forest. The long winding road through gigantic trees was leading right into Fermosa. Because Nick usually struggled with travel sickness coming down this route, it was probably a blessing that Nick was asleep.
Startled by the ringing of the phone, Ethan checked the ID, and pressed the Bluetooth button.
“Ethan speaking.”
“It’s Connor.”
Ethan’s heart sank, not ready, yet, for the conversation he was about to have. Another quick glance to the back told him that Nick was still asleep. It had been hard telling his son the news regarding Jack.
“How are you holding up?” he asked his friend.
There was a moment of silence before Connor finally said, “Emily’s struggling.”
Ethan exhaled a long, deep breath as he turned the corner for another near perfect view over Fermosa.


Thanks for all your comments,

4 starsThe Romance Review – 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.

  1. I’m curious to know what conversation he’s not ready to have with Connor. Great imagery of the drive too.
