Irish Pride - St. Patrick's Week Special

My dear father, God rest his soul, was proud of being part Irish, and so am I!

Sad to say, I'm not much of a corned beef and cabbage eater, though my mostly Polish husband is. I really can't explain why that is.

Anyway, it's fun to take part in Irish festivities by watching parades and the wearing of the green on St. Patrick's Day.

To get into the spirit of things, I've put my latest paranormal romantic thriller, Forever Young: Blessing or Curse, on sale through Saturday for 99 cents on kindle.

Here's a Short Excerpt:
This excerpt rings especially true for me. Though it wasn't icy at the time, my Dad fell in my driveway when getting into his car, had to have hip surgery, and was never the same afterward.


 "...How’s your Dad doing?”
“Could be better, to put it mildly. I’d give anything to turn back the clock to before he fell on the black ice in the driveway, setting off this whole miserable chain of events. The poor man can’t do anything he loves, like fishing, hunting or even something so ordinary as walking around the block. Even with medicine, he’s in such pain that half the time he doesn’t feel like eating. He’s wasting away, no matter how I keep after him to get something down.”
“Can’t anything be done?”
“I’m afraid not. Every specialist I’ve consulted, and there are tons of them, all say his back was broken so severely an operation could paralyze him. Given the situation, we dare not take the chance. He’s bad enough as it is.”
“I feel so sorry for Mike. He’s such a great guy. He used to be so cheerful, too, with such a great laugh.”
“Well, not any more. I can’t remember the last time he even smiled. I’m constantly monitoring him in case, God forbid, he breaks down in a moment of weakness and does something drastic. It’s heartbreaking to see him like this.”
