A wonderful collection of short stories for a great cause. I've read two of the eight and loved them both.
Escaping the Cocoon by Jade C. Jamison
A tender story about a woman who has lost her sense of worth, married to a man who doesn't appreciate her. Once she decides to start a part-time job, she slowly begins to gain back her independence and finds someone worth reinventing herself for.
I loved that the author has written a story that is not her usual style. But no matter, it's still beautifully poignant and provides such hope for a woman who thought all was lost. I wouldn't mind more from these characters since they do have more to tell. A winner from start to finish.
Filthy Rich - Blackstone by Raine Miller
I'm happy to say that Raine Miller is back and is better than ever. I mean, seriously, another Blackstone? Could my heart beat any faster at the thought? This time we get the beginnings of Caleb's story, an American cousin of Ethan who lives the rich, bachelor lifestyle and is stopped in his tracks when he sees the woman who could and hopefully will change all that. Brooke is English by birth but came to America after her parents died to live with her grandmother on an island off of Massachusetts. Blackstone Island to be exact. Although their meeting is brief, the sparks clearly flew and we are left wondering how this entire tale will unfold. I love that Brooke seems to be able to hold her own although there is an indication she wasn't always that way. And with Caleb, we're left with knowing that he may just take his recently deceased Dad's advice and grab onto the one woman who could soon own his heart. There are already some secondary characters that I just know will accentuate this book beautifully that are introduced.
I'm thrilled Ms. Miller is back and I cannot wait for more of this story! It's simply fantastic. As usual.
