New Year’s Resolutions are little bit like the movie Groundhog Day. You just keep making the same resolutions over and over every year, hoping for a different result. Or at least that’s what would happen if I made resolutions this year. Last year around this time I listed my goals for the year. Then in July, I did a midyear check-in to let you all know how badly I was sucking at meeting them.
Now a year later, I could once again tell you about my pie-in-the-sky dreams to add hours to the day so I can become more cultured, more self-aware, more compassionate, healthier, and smarter, as well as become a better writer, mother, wife, and citizen.
But let’s face it. I’m not going to achieve a nirvana of perfection in 2017… or 2018 or 2043, for that matter. I’m just going to be me, scrambling to get in my daily word count while remembering to put food on the table and trying to figure out how the hell people can afford to put three kids through college when they don’t win (or, for that matter, play) the lottery.
I don’t have the answers, but I do know I’m going to keep plugging along at life, reaching for new opportunities, treasuring family moments, and probably losing my $h!t a few times throughout the year. (Did I mention I have three teenagers living under my roof?!)
Happy New Year and good luck with your resolutions! If you’re looking for a winter stranded-together-in-a-snowstorm romance, check out Tempting Mr. Forever. Reading it can be your New Year’s Resolution!
Love is his enemy…and her answer.
A nationally televised bombshell revealing a secret son turns marriage therapist Caleb Paden’s life upside down. While others focus on the public relations disaster for his company, he can only think of rescuing his baby and providing the stable home dictated by his marriage theories—one devoid of love and emotions.
Olivia Wells might not be the baby’s biological mother, but she loves him as much as any parent could. Letting him go will break her heart. Letting him go to a man who doesn’t believe in love will tear her apart.
As she helps Caleb bond with his child, Olivia finds herself falling for the man behind the stuffy therapist persona. However, he wants nothing to do with her love and emotions, and those are the only things she has to give. If she can’t convince him love is the answer, not the enemy, she will lose both the baby she loves and her heart.
