How can this possibly be the last Saturday in July? I'm not ready, I'm not even ready for it to be Saturday.
This week the I'm pulling the curtain back for another peek into the lives of Maria Elena Bartola and Juan Antonio Cabrillo. TAMING MARIA is a tale of romance, adventure and personal tragedy.
Maria has recovered from a life threatening injury resulting from an earthquake. Her memory and her strength have not fully returned but she is trying to remember what life was like prior to her injury. Everyday a little more of her personality reappears and she is tired of being an invalid and treated as such. Returning to normal means that her beloved Juan once agains bears the brunt of her caustic personality.
She laughed. "So do you still want to marry me?"
"Yes, I do. I think maybe I need my head examined but you are the only one I ever thought about having share my life. I have been in love with you since we were five years old."
She laughed again. "So where's the ring?"
"You are still a spoiled brat that needs a good spanking," he told her. "I don't have the ring on me but I will produce it in good time."
"Don't wait too long or I may change my mind," she told him.
"If you change your mind, I will just have to haul you over my shoulder and take you to the nearest Justice of the Peace and everything else be damned."
Her laughter rang out as she walked away.
TAMING MARIA can be purchased as a stand alone book or as part of a boxed set which includes three of my other books. They, as well as my other books are available in all digital formats at LSF Publications and Amazon.com.
