January and the Single Heart
A STORY FOR ANYONE WHO NEEDS A LITTLE LUCK IN THEIR LOVE LIFE!
Thirty year old Jan Falkenberg hasn’t been kissed for nearly three years. On a serendipitous day she finds a peculiar gold coin that promises to bring luck in life and love. Just in time … if you believe in that kind of thing! Jan has some burdensome promises to keep and a looming deadline. After making her find, she gains a new sense of confidence … but nine more months pass and her lips are still waiting for a tender touch. Self-doubt fills her single heart and a hint of panic sets in.
As time runs short, her risky promises are in jeopardy. With her deadline approaching, she faces painful options yet none of her candidates seem to be Mr. Right. Time and the coin will tell and Jan’s choice may solve her crisis … or just break what’s left of her heart.
February and the Single Heart
As the second novella of the series, February and the Single Heart picks up where January left off. But with a totally different set of characters and a vastly different story than January’s. What is still the same is the Seattle area setting and the magic that springs from the Coin of Luck. January’s book ends with the coin being passed on and shortly into ‘February’ you find out who has it now.
Mary Jo Miller, the focal point of the story, is a young genius of a woman who faces a huge crisis early in life. Kidnapped at 15, she is rescued by a young man who finds his way into her life again, eight years later. This time she is in more danger and will need all the luck that coin can give. With her life and freedom in the balance, she learns that the young man she is falling for may not be her rescuer after all. This time, he may be more concerned about himself and she may spend the rest of her life mired in a nightmare of regret.
March and the Single Heart
3rd Novella in the Single Heart Series
In a downtrodden and forgotten section of Seattle, Marci Ramirez labors daily toward her secret goal. She has a burden and a pain she carries inside her but she promised herself that nothing will get in the way of achieving her dream; not her crippled leg, not the local gang who threatens her, not the unrequited love she holds for the boy she grew up beside. But promises are sometimes broken and just as a bloody end looms as inescapable, a stranger passes the Coin of Luck her way. Too bad she doesn’t really believe in luck …
April and the Single Heart
April McKenzie has a serious problem: she needs to be needed. She needs to be needed so badly that she’s becoming a regular attraction at all the bars within stumbling distance – everybody knows April and her short skirts and easy demeanor. Sadly, the men she’s been going home with seem to only need her for one thing – and after that, they don’t need her at all.
With the help of her best friend Gail (and a lucky talisman), April sets out to find the answer: what will finally fulfill that never-ending need to be needed? Will good fortune smile upon her or will she be forever doomed to futilely wander the Seattle bar scene?
