Here With You-New Release

 

 Here With You

By Marianne Rice

Marianne1

Blurb

Hiding behind her high-end fashion and even higher heels, Grace LeBlanc returns home to Crystal Cove, Maine to escape the scandal she’s created in Europe. Her relationship with her sister is rocky at best, and the last thing she wants is for her to learn about the string of stupid mistakes—-intentional and unintentional—-she has floating behind her. It doesn’t seem to matter what decision Grace makes, it always end up being the wrong one.

Brady Marshall enjoys his simple life tending to his family’s blueberry farm and minding his own business. As the oldest son, it is his duty to keep their farm running after his father’s death. Now at thirty-six, he’s still living in his childhood bedroom in his mother’s house. It never bothered him until the LeBlancs’ wild child returns to town.

When his mother falls ill and Grace comes to their aid, Brady begins to see another side of the superficial pinup girl he’s never respected or cared for. Somewhere behind her false eyelashes and spiky heels, there’s a caring heart. If only he can get her to see her own value and worth.
As they spend more and more time together, something deeper than friendship forms between them.

But when Brady discovers the secrets she’s keeping go against everything he values, he has to decide if Grace is worth giving his heart to.

Excerpt

He hadn’t seen her until now, not that he was looking. He was actually intentionally not looking. It was hard not to notice her tonight in her teal dress. It hugged her in all the right places without being too revealing, and left her long legs bare. Brady trailed his gaze up and down them, stopping at her toes. They peeped out from her white heels. Or were they beige? Maybe tan. He couldn’t tell and it didn’t matter, and he silently thanked God or whoever created those shoes for what they did to her calves.
Hell, her ankles. Even her kneecaps looked sexy.
He took a sip from his beer and turned his back on the dance floor. If he was thanking God for high heel shoes, he absolutely needed to get out more.

Things That Make Me Happy-Bollywood

In January I started (or thought I was starting) a weekly blog titled Things That Make Me Happy. It didn’t go anywhere thanks to life in general 🙂 I don’t know whether this is another dead end, but I am willing to try again.

Music makes me happy, many different kinds of music. One of which is Bollywood music. There is something very happy about Bollywood; love, happy endings, lots of wonderful dancing, beautiful costumes…what’s not to like? A while back I watched a modern Bollywood movie called I Hate Luv Storys (and no, I did not misspell it. That’s the correct title of the movie.) about a young (very handsome) young man who worked for a Bollywood Movie director. This young man hated the fact that each of those movies were sugary and had happy endings, but ironically ends up living his own version of a true love story. The music is fantastic, the dancing is great and…well, it just makes me happy!
