The Hopeless Romantic
Jenna Michaels is a romance writer who believes in every word she writes. One day prince charming will come knocking on her door and make her a bride just like the ones she creates in her books.

The Cynical Bastard
Alex James, is living his dream as a mom and pop pizza place owner. A nasty divorce taught him that love doesn’t exist. He believes the best cure for love is a cynical attitude and a piece of pizza.

Excerpt:

Jenna

“You did what?” Karen looks at me, a bit dumbfounded.

“You heard me, I accidently ordered a pizza from the Freaking Wicked pizza place in Ohio instead of the one here in Twin Falls. I was having a bad night, and now I can’t seem to stop e-mailing the owner back. It’s only been going on a few days. Oh, and because I freaked out on him, now I get free pizza whenever I want, from the Freaking Wicked here in Twin. He’s the most cynical guy I think I’ve ever talked to, but he has a good heart. I really believe that.”

“What’s his name?”

“Alex James.”

“Is he on Facebook?” Karen asks.

“I don’t know, I haven’t checked. I’m not you, I don’t need to know every last detail about someone before I talk to them.”

“What about his website? Is there a picture on his pizza site?”

“Oh, I don’t know.”

“Well let’s look.” Karen pulls her phone out and Googles Alex’s website. “Here.” And she hands me her phone.

The face staring back at me is very handsome. Alex has dark brown hair, cut short, beautiful blue eyes, full lips and a strong jaw. He is giving the camera a slight smile and is wearing a simple black t-shirt and a white apron with his pizza shops logo across the top of it.

“Oh, well, okay.”

“Okay? At least now you know he’s human and male. I bet he’s packing some muscles under that shirt, you can see the slight bulge of his biceps from his crossed arms.”

“I already knew that he was human and male. I talked to him on the phone once, remember?” But I look at the picture again and bite my lip, yes, he’s definitely very nice looking.

“He’s kind of a looker.”

“Karen! That’s not the point of this. I’m not e-mailing him because I think he’s cute.”

“Well, it doesn’t hurt.”

I shrug. “No, I guess it doesn’t.” I hear my phone ding. “Oh hey, here is another e-mail from him.”

Prom #2

I read through my post about prom, I realised that I never uploaded a picture of my Prom dress when I said I would. Unfortunately Prom didn’t go to plan, Me and my boyfriend broke up 1 day after I wrote that post. The good bit was that he said he would still take me to prom as we were still friends, then he said he didn’t want to go, so I was left going to prom on my own. As time went by someone had asked me to go to prom with them. The place was beautiful it was my birthday I was so happy. My friend asked the DJ to announce that it was my birthday so it was really good. Until I turned around and my Ex-boyfriend was there, He had taken another girl to prom. But Prom was amazing and I would certainly do it all over again.  I have quite a few photos with people at prom but because I don’t have permission off them to upload them. So I have a picture of me and my mum on prom night.

She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.

Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.

Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.
