I have to apologize to all the Laid To Rest fans, but I made a change this week. I have plucked a few sentences from a contemporary romance I'm working on called The Baby Doctor. The hero, Aaron hopes to adopt an abandoned baby. The heroine, Jamie, is the baby's aunt and his nemsis.
"Before my sister died, I promised her I would raise her son as my own."
Jamie's words ricocheted through his heart. Aaron shoved away from Elaine's desk. He wanted out of this room. Away from the silly rainbows on the wall and their empty promises of sunny days, dreams come true and happiness forever.
From first hand experience, he knew reality was hard, cold and painful.
