Savannah I was only eighteen years old when I thought I had found my happily ever after. After the tragic death of my mother, I married the love of my life, Ace Townsend. Yes, we were young and idealistic, but we had it all figured out. He was going to be a fighter pilot in the Air Force. I would go to medical school to become a doctor for people who couldn’t afford healthcare. People like my mother. But, like everything else in my life, that dream fell apart when I realized Ace was better off without me.
So I left. Sixteen years later, I’m forced to return to Harlington, Texas. Not for my sake, but to save the one person in my life who matters to me the most. Even if it means confronting my estranged husband and abiding by his stipulation to move in with him temporarily. If that’s what it takes for him to sign the divorce papers so that I can receive my inheritance and save an innocent life, I’ll do it. I just have to keep my heart locked away for the next six months. That’s proving to be easier said than done. My Forever is an interracial romance (BWWM) and is book three in the Townsends of Texas series. This book contains mature, steamy love scenes. Happily Ever After is guaranteed.
The memories were too much, and I needed some space. Before I knew it, I was at the first door I could find and exiting the house. I ended up on the front porch of the house.
Only after a long while of pacing back and forth in front of Micah’s home did I finally start to breathe regularly again.
My body felt like someone ripped it inside out.
I heard a noise behind me but didn’t turn around. When Savannah began stroking my back, some of the hurt in my chest began to ease.
She didn’t say anything for a long while. I knew I should’ve explained what the hell that was all about, but I didn’t have the words.
“You know, it took me years before I could even stand the sight of babies.” Her voice was soft, consoling. “Especially mothers holding their babies or playing with them.”
Finally, I turned to face her. “How did you get over it?” I asked, grateful I didn’t need to explain myself.
“Work.” She gave me a tight smile. “I had to work with all kinds of patients when I started in healthcare. I’d successfully avoided young children and babies up until then. But then I couldn’t. So, I had a decision to make. I could either put my pain above their needs, or I could push through and be the healthcare provider they deserved.”
“And I didn’t have anything left.” She looked me in the eyes. “I no longer had you, or our baby, a family. Even my dream of going to medical school, I gave up on. I decided that eventually becoming a PA was one more thing I didn’t want to lose. So, I sucked it up.”
I stood to my full height and peered down at her.
“You no longer had me?” I asked, my voice tight. “You always fucking had me. Always. All you had to do was come back.”

I have always been fascinated by storytelling, books, and reading. After years of diving in between the pages of one romance book after another, I decided to try my hand at writing. I haven't looked back since. I enjoy bringing my readers stories of hope, perseverance, and most importantly, love. When I'm not writing you can find me enjoying time with friends, hiking, or daydreaming about my next novel. Author links:
