Monica Marlowe Stops by Tomorrow!
Madeline O'Connor was happy. Or was she? When she learns that her estranged sister is gravely ill, she leaves behind her life in Manhattan to be at her sister's side in Italy. There, she discovers an ancient Benedictine monastery that accommodates travelers, and she decides to stay there, among the monks. Everything in her life turns upside down when she falls for Brother Anthony Lamberti, a soft-spoken Italian completely different from the men she knows in New York.
Together Madeline and Anthony find love for the first time, and learn that life and love always find a way. Loving Anthony creates a new life for Madeline. A new life she would never have imagined and yet is perfect for her in every way.
Want an excerpt to whet your whistle for tomorrow? Here you go!
Today he wore a crisp white shirt that set off his olive complexion. Slim fitting jeans. His eyes seemed darker. Pools of sweet dark chocolate. Bitter - sweet dark chocolate.
His eyes widened at the sight of her.
“Oh! Hello.” Madeline was at a loss for words. Her cheeks burned at the memory of their first meeting.
“Buon giorno.” He pursed his lips, trying to conceal amusement at her obvious embarrassment.
“Well, this is quite a coincidence, isn't it?” Madeline was beginning to recover. Maybe staying at the monastery was not such a bad idea after all. Casually her eyes glanced at his left hand. No wedding ring. Perhaps there was a God.
Enjoy!!!! Oh, and come back tomorrow for the interview!!
