Ella is a middle-aged woman with a stagnant career, an exasperated teenage daughter, and a husband that has left to make a new life with another woman. Her first attempt at dating is a disaster, and in an attempt to refocus her life and rediscover her joy, Ella goes fishing. It is here that she meets Dennis, the older, captivating man that ends up saving her life and stealing her heart. But Dennis has a history, and Ella might just be in for the biggest heartbreak of her life if she can not get her emotions under control and face the demons from her own past.

Enjoy an Excerpt

“Leave. Go do your usual Friday night stuff. I’m sure it involves dating and normalcy and having fun. Don’t come here out of obligation to spend some pity time with a middle-aged, boring, frump of a woman -”

“Hey!” he yelled, his fist closing in around the blanket. He waited as she stared back in surprise. “Are you done yet?”

“Maybe,” she hissed because she suddenly couldn’t catch her breath.

He set the blanket down and then climbed the few steps before sitting down beside her. “Let’s make one thing clear. I’m here because I want to be. And middle-aged? I’m older than you. By a decade. Frump of a woman? Honey, you have no idea just who you are, do you?”

Before she could ask what he meant, he leaned in and kissed her. Gently, hesitantly and then he drew back to study her. With a slight grin, a muffled curse, he kissed her again, this time with more urgency, hunger… as if he had been waiting to do just what he was doing.

Ella felt her body betray her by leaning into him, her arms lacing around his neck without her permission. She felt like she was made of air and yet could not sit up on her own. She felt his hands on her back, two hot spots that seared through her shirt and reached her racing blood. This was just some type of retaliation for her kiss in the store, she told herself. This was not real.

And then it was over. She felt cold, exposed as he pulled away, although his hands remained. “Dammit.”
