When I sat down to write this series I created characters I liked. I wanted the women to be smart, have their heads on straight, be part of a group of supportive friends, and have a positive relationship with their family. I wanted the guys to be the men you really want to meet -- good guys, who work hard, and treat women with respect.
All the princess books are coming of age stories. Our protagonists have finished college and are now embarking on the adult world. Overcoming an embedded belief or coming to terms with adult issues is not always easy or pretty to watch. If I've done my job well as an author, there will be times when you yell at my protagonist to grow up, get their head out of their butt, or to stop worrying so much. Hopefully, by the end of each book, you will cheer the protagonist as they grow, change, and evolve into an adult.
Of course, these are all romance novels, so the center of each story is the protagonist as they grow, mature and get to embrace their wonderful partner.
Please note, this single novel was once made up of the Trilogy Meet Me, Kiss Me and Be with Me.

I find having people look over my shoulder when I work is disconcerting. By 10:00 a.m., the office is starting to fill up.

The guys follow, not saying much. As Amanda tells me an animated story, a strong hand grabs my upper arm and pulls me off to the right. Zing! A hot tingle runs through my body. Looking up, I spot a couple of kids on bicycles swerve to miss me. Following the arm to Zach’s face, we both look directly into each

I can feel his warm fingers on my lower back as he searches for the bottom of my sweater. I have no desire to stand there passively as I pull his shirt out of his pants with both of my hands, which makes it easy to find his warm skin. Our palms stroke the skin of each other’s back.

I was Snow White,” I explain as I bat my heavily mascaraed eyes at him. “Well Snow White, let’s hope you don’t run into any evil queens or poison apples.” As he watches me rub my hands together since they’re cold, he pulls them between his and comments, “You and Cassie need to buy a modern thermostat, one we can turn up before we get home, and turn it down from our phone when we’re
