Blurb:
After
a tragic loss five years ago, Sally Overby becomes an Attorney in Atlanta. She
convinces herself that all she’ll ever need again is her young son, David, and
her life as an attorney. Until one day, Colin Dean barges back into her life
and promptly blows her safe world apart, driving her crazy as only a guy she’d
had a “school girl crush” on can.
Sally
is wary to love deeply. Only, with every loving look Colin gives her plus every
sweet kiss, as the attraction between them sparks, she can’t help but wonder if
she’s met the one she should be with. And although Colin didn’t realize his
life was going to change so quickly, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit
interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different
fight altogether. The one for Sally’s heart.
Will
Colin be able to convince her that’s it safe to love him… and that forever
isn’t really out of reach?
The
Eyes of Love is a novella… so you can enjoy it in just one day!
Excerpt from The Eyes of Love:
A hush fell over the room for a moment as Stephanie
appeared with Jazz trailing behind her. She was wearing a skin tight black dress
with stiletto heels which was typical Stephanie fashion. She wanted nothing
more than to be the center of attention like she always had been.
Without missing a beat, Stephanie walked straight over to
Colin. Sally was shocked.
“Hello, Colin…” she purred as she ignored
Sally completely. “You look sexy tonight, as always.” She smiled
seductively as Colin looked away. “Who’s your friend?”
“None of your business, Steph. Leave me alone.”
“Oohhh…. Did I touch a nerve, sweetie?” she
asked as she reached out to touch his chest.
“Don’t touch me, Stephanie. I’m warning you. Why
don’t you go back to Jazz?”
“Oh. Jazz. Boring…” she sang. “We’re not
together anymore, just so you know…” she whispered in a husky voice.
Colin held onto Sally’s hand for dear life. She had to do something.
“Stephanie, don’t you remember me?” she asked
grinning from ear to ear as she slid into Colin’s side. He put his arm around
her and stared down in shock at what she was about to say.
“I don’t know you,” Stephanie said looking her
up and down.
“Wow. Age is really doing a number on your
brain,” Sally said.
“Who are you?” Stephanie snapped. Jazz stood a
few feet back obviously trying to hear the conversation.
“I’m
your worst nightmare,” Sally growled as she came almost nose to nose with
Stephanie, her attorney public speaking skills getting ready to display
themselves. She pulled the name tag from her purse without breaking eye contact
and held it up. “You see, I’m the nerd that you and your cronies bullied
through high school.”

Author information:

Angelina Rose has wanted to write ever since she could
hold a pencil. The first daughter of immigrant parents, Angelina had her head
buried in books, lost in a world of heroes, heroines and exotic places.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Angelina’s author career.

“I awoke in the ICU… I had been unconscious for several days,”
Angelina says.

In 2010, Angelina had a long stint in hospital following her involvement in a
motor vehicle accident: the longest time off work (as a Registered Nurse),
she’d ever had in her life!

It was then she took up pen and paper and started to write again, just as she
had done when she was a child. She wrote four short fiction stories for young
adults, entered them in several competitions, and managed to win three first
prizes!

After happily dipping her toes into writing those short fiction stories for
young adults, Angelina has now authored four books in a new “Mill Creek
Crossing Romance” series… contemporary romance intended for adults.

The “Starting Over Series” is another contemporary romance series she
wrote about a subject she knows well… nurses and their love life. At a recent
reunion of her graduating class, she could not help but notice how the same
girls would group together and laugh, chat, and even shed some tears over their
lives since graduating. Many of the girls had divorced… so Angelina thought
“what if a group of the nurses came up with a plan to meet in two years
and have a new love story to share?” Then the first story in the series
was born.

There is always a story running around in her head. A man with thick dark hair,
gray-blue eyes, with an engaging smile and a quick wit… or a girl crying over
a broken relationship. She finds herself talking to these characters during her
day: when she’s doing dishes, or bathing babies at the hospital. These
characters crop up on days at the beach or on walks through the neighborhood.
This is how the stories start to grow.

Angelina’s mother was an author, so Angelina grew up with a love of words and
stories. If she wasn’t writing a short story about something that took her
fancy, her head was buried in books… reading, reading, reading, as her
brother constantly told her…

When she’s not spending time with her goodlooking man, or quality time with her
laptop, she’s working at the hospital, hanging out with her family and friends,
or walking her two dogs around the neighborhood. Angelina spends as much time
as she can traveling, then coming home and including some of those adventures
in her stories.

Angelina really loves to hear from her readers and she invites you to connect
with her on Facebook as she interacts daily with her readers there!
