After losing her father and brother in the line of duty, Missy Prescott vows never to get involved with anyone who has a dangerous job. Blessed with a golden voice, she takes a job as a disc jockey with her own late-night lovelorn dedication show on a popular radio station in Baltimore.
Blake Decker has never had a family. He has come to count on the only family he knows—his brothers on the police force. He’s a one-night-stand kind of guy when it comes to relationships.
Betty McAllister, the caring woman who used to live in Missy’s apartment, is now a ghost. She refuses to cross over until Blake—whom she viewed as her own son—is happily in love. She thinks Missy is the perfect girl for him.
Missy and Blake need to keep each other at a distance as they work together to help Betty find a way to cross over. But when danger lurks, will Missy and Blake lose everything?
Caught in the crossfire, and forced to face their possible impending deaths when a disgruntled employee opens fire at their office, co-workers Shelby and Russ make a deal while hiding under a desk: if Russ dies, she’ll take care of his six year-old daughter Annabelle, if Shelby dies, he’ll look after her terminally ill father.
Annabelle needs a mom; Shelby’s dad will die happy if she marries. Once they escape their situation, a marriage of convenience seems like the perfect answer, and they hold a quick wedding, intending a life of separate bedrooms and shared responsibilities, with friendship and companionship, but not love.
As they spend more time together, their bond becomes more than either bargained for. But when misfortune strikes, their newfound love is put to the test.
Wow! I can't even begin to express how this novella made me feel. The more I think about it afterward, the more I fall in love with FOREVER'S PROMISE. It is first and foremost a friends-to-lovers story that surrounds a realistic and practical solution. It's written with so much warmth that your heart will squeeze at several moments! ~Grace Z. from Sam E and R's Awesomeness Blog
When by-the-numbers accountant Rob Morrison, a skeptic of all things paranormal, moves into a new apartment and discovers it is haunted by the corporeal ghost of a beautiful woman, he must hastily reconsider his beliefs and revisit his painful past.
With no memory of her time on earth, Angie Barsotti doesn’t understand why she’s compelled to visit the same apartment every night as a ghost caught between two worlds. If she’s to have a chance to move on, she needs to find the missing pieces of her life and death through the man who lives there... if only he’d believe in her.
Together they struggle to find the truth about her death and stumble upon a very pleasurable way to time travel, hopeful they can prevent her death. But someone doesn’t want them to discover the truth. And if she’s human again, will she have any memories of her time as a ghost... and more importantly, will she remember the man who helped her find her way?
The mystery of what really happened to Angie makes for an interesting read, and the book's paranormal aspects transport readers into a world of possibilities that bring up new questions about the afterlife.
