Can opposites in life find happiness, or will the dos and don'ts win out?
Forty-something divorcée Doctor Eunice Saunders has already done the "married-with-children" thing, and thirty-something Assistant Coach Bernard "Bernie" Jenkins doesn't do the "women-with-children" thing. But, a chance meeting in a University of Mississippi parking lot has them rethinking their individual "dos and don'ts."
This is my first contracted story to be released. This is also my first romance to feature two African-American leads. And finally, I really like this story. It's sweet and sensual and Bernie is very, very hot. I probably shouldn't admit I have a crush on a fictional character of my creation no less, but I REALLY like Bernie. And I want to be Eunice when I grow up. These two surprised me when I started writing Vietnam Story, but when I wrote their story here, I realize it made so much sense. They balance each other out very well, I think, and they're just good people. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
