Lydia O’Reilley, divorce attorney, is on the fast track to make partner until she meets a hot stranger at the Candy Bar, and one thing leads to another. The following morning she’s doing a joint deposition and in walks Jed, the man she’d spent the night with, and her new client’s soon-to-be-ex husband. Later she learns the condom broke and she’s pregnant. Now her perfect life is seriously derailed, and it may take a little magic to make everything right.
WHERE WISHES COME TRUE
Susie spends Friday night at the Candy Bar, the hottest spot in South Beach. She wears a perfect size 2, and blows her money on Jimmy Choo shoes. But appearances can be deceiving. Perfect on the outside, her flaws are carried deep. Disfigured at birth, her father, a renowned plastic surgeon started her life under the knife and her sees herself as the ugly duckling in a family of swans. Her words, not mine. She is about to begin an adventure of a lifetime, a 6-week sojourn in Florence to study painting, when Brett, a hot firefighter who she has known and loved forever, is badly injured and scarred. He pushes her away, but she is a champion for the underdog, and it’s impossible for her to leave anyone in need, little alone the man she loves. She must choose between her dream of studying painting or staying behind to help the man she loves–even if he doesn’t love her. Will Susie ever find the happiness that has always been outside her grasp, and learn that love begins within?
Fran Sherman is a survivor—she’s also resilient, stubborn, tenacious, feisty, and a whole slew of other words, but you get my point. If a tornado came her way, she’d probably swallow it whole and spit the damn thing out. That’s Fran Sherman, like a tank and just as indestructible.
And yet, tonight at the Candy Bar she feels vulnerable as if something beyond her control just might get the better of her.
Fire chief John Hanley is also at the bar that night. He’s looking forward to retirement in a few years, and has dreams of his own. They don’t include love, marriage or magic!
FOR THE LOVE OF CANDY — The Candy Bar is in trouble. Crime and corruption has changed the landscape of the street. Candy can stay and fight it, or sell and run. She has called an emergency meeting with her dear friends, the sisters of her heart, to tell them her decision. Enter Harrison Wolfe—Boston lawyer, probably a Mayflower descendent by his arrogance and arresting good looks. He has come to the Candy Bar to tell her that his daughter is engaged to her son Billy. He’s only 21 and graduating from college, and is certainly not ready to take on the responsibilities of marriage. Harrison is also strongly opposed to this engagement and wants to put an end to it before it even begins. Thunder cracks open the sky, lightning strikes, and Harrison and Candy are caught up in the magic and madness. Now they have to fight their attraction—and keep their pants on–to stay focused on keeping their children apart. This hilarious, touching, upbeat story will engage your emotions and hopefully have you laughing one minute, and wiping tears the next.
