INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn't.”




It wasn’t a busy morning, and fortunately Jack took over most of the check-ins. Which
meant during her daily routine, Emma was able to ring about every babysitter and nanny
service in town – but to no avail. She grew more and more nervous the closer it drew to
lunchtime. She placed the folder back into the drawer, grabbed the phone directory, and
kept searching. Emma took the pencil from behind her ear and just as she was about to
jot down another number, she saw a man in a dark business suit entering the hotel lobby
through the big, rotating glass door. Emma couldn’t help staring at him. He came towards
the reception desk in quick, long steps.
“Em, you’re drooling again,” Jack whispered.
She glanced over at Jack and heat crept up her cheeks. Actually, it was like her head
was on fire and she was about to faint when Jack’s words registered in her brain, “Sir, if
you wouldn’t mind, I need to take this call. I’m sure Emma will help you with any
queries.”
She gazed at him, biting the inside of her cheek and the pencil still in her hand. There
he was in front of her with his athletic figure, broad shoulders and his tall build.
“Excuse me,” he said in a deep voice, as he slid his sunglasses on top of his head.
Emma looked into his hazel-brown eyes. “Yes, sir. How can I help you?”
“Could you please let Mrs. Gibbs, room five-o-two, know that I have arrived. My name
is Flynn McCormack. I’ll wait in the hotel café.”

  15. Jack is a real jokester, isn't he? I think I would have hit him by now if I was her. I wonder what this new character is going to bring, and if he's anything like Mrs. Gibbs.
