The best decision they'll ever make

Lacey Hamilton is used to living in the background. Overshadowed her entire life, she stepped out of the Hollywood limelight and into the role she's meant to play: a counselor, part of the High Risk Team started by The Lemonade Stand women's shelter in Santa Raquel.

Her caseload leads her to the doorstep of Jeremiah "Jem" Bridges to rescue a little boy. She's not supposed to fall in love with the rugged construction worker and his adorable son. Love and duty, though, don't always agree. Especially when a truth is uncovered that neither she nor Jem is prepared to face.

Not Your Ordinary Romance

While I’ve been a voracious reader of romance – Harlequin books specifically – since I was fourteen years old, I’ve never been a writer of typical romance novels. My books are filled with hard topics, issues that face real women, without any sugarcoating to make them more palatable. I didn’t choose this route. The voices, the stories, the people that appear in my head, chose me.
No matter what I write, for whatever line or continuity or project, my books are filled with intense, emotional fiction based on facts of life. They aren’t true stories. None of them are based on real people (other than my own true life love story published with HCI books.) They are larger than life. And yet…they all that grain of truth that taps into real feelings, real hurts, real challenges.
All of my books give something else, as well. They show real ways to deal with the issues. The challenges. They are filled with life truths. They are filled with hope. And the promise of happiness.
His First Choice emulates all of this. While Lacey Hamilton, my heroine, is a strong, necessary, vital character, I feel that the book is larger Jeb’s as well. (Ironic because Lacey’s entire life she’d come in second. Her story is about her allowing herself to ask for herself what she always gives to others – and to trust them to give it to her, and here I am seemingly taking away even her story from her.)

Jeb is…a real man. A hunk. A construction worker who wears the tool belt, and owns his own company. He’s a father. A good one. An honorable man. And he’s being investigated, by Lacey, for abusing his four-year-old son. The whole thing is heartbreaking. But if you’ll bunker down and travel the journey with them, I promise you will be given a depth that will, at the very least, give you something to think about.
