Valentine’s Day is behind you.

For those of you who noshed on boxes of chocolates, maybe you can still see the effects of the day in your rear view mirror.

Well, don't blame me. You gave those chocolates to me. What was I supposed to do? Insult you on the most romantic day of the year?

Well, don’t blame me. I know I’m a hair or two larger in the behind. But you gave those chocolates to me. What was I supposed to do? Insult you on the most romantic day of the year?

But I’m not here to chide anyone about their chocoholism.

I’m here to remind you about romance and how it’s right at your finger-tips.

Not exactly what I meant, but I hope he was feeling some love. Or some something.

A wonderful writer and blogger buddy of mine, Tricia Linden, just released her latest romance-with-a-twist novel, Until We Meet Again.

Her twist is that she includes some metaphysical/spiritual/time travel/or just plain spooky element to her romance novels.

So if you love love AND you love the unexpected, Tricia is an author you might want to check out. Click here to get to her blog.

What’s this book about?

Glad you asked!

Here’s Tricia’s book blurb:

See? Romance with a twist. What's that key all about?

See? Romance with a twist. What’s that key all about?

Victoria Winters didn’t regret her affair at Woodstock, or that she returned from the past pregnant with a daughter who would never know her father. Maggie is the light of her life and her only desire is for the two of them to live happily ever after, but she’s deeply indebted to the Maestro, a mysterious man who saved her life in exchange for becoming his time-traveling courier.  Victoria has spent the last four years caring for her daughter, but she still has time to pay, and now she’s being recalled into service to travel to Manhattan in 1888 to retrieve a lost Stradivarius violin.
The Maestro has tracked the missing violin to Robert  Stevenson, a successful investment banker living the good life in the gilded age of Manhattan. After his wife’s untimely death he seeks to employ a new governess for his eight year old daughter, Lenna. When Victoria shows up at his front door it’s obvious she’s the perfect candidate for the job, even though he suspects there’s much more to Miss Winters than she’s willing to tell.
If Victoria can find the violin within three weeks, she’ll earn extra time off her ten-year contract with the Maestro. If she fails, she risks losing her daughter, and possibly her life. Before her assignment is over, she’ll be forced to decide; what is she be willing to lose to have everything she ever wanted?
The book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other book sellers (but you’ll have to contact Tricia to find out which ones).
She's as sweet as she looks, so don't hesitate to contact her.
