Are you curious what Two Worlds Collided is all about?

Evie Reid on a whim agrees to travel back in time to 1997 to change bad boy, rock star Bellamy Lovel's path of destruction. She's smart with a college degree, but she is still fan-girl crazy for the rock band, Civilized Heathens. Evie knows despite all Bellamy's smiles and enthusiasm on the stage, he's destined to end it all on one lonely night in a hotel room unless she can change his path.

Bellamy isn't keen on having Evie as his personal assistant, hired by his band mates to watch over him, and keep him on schedule. However, there is something about the woman that sparks his interest, despite his best to ignore her. When darkness threatens to consume him, he realizes she may be the only light that will chase the shadows away.


Inspiration for Two Worlds Collided:

My daughter and I watched 'INXS- Live at Wembley' on DVD. We were sad to think the lead singer had died so tragically and there would never be another song written or performed by him. The time travel tale about Bellamy Lovel took root, but I wanted a happier ending for my rock star and sent Evie back in time to try and save him.

Did you know that every chapter title is a title of a song from INXS? You can create a Two Worlds Collided playlist.

2. Disappear
3. Body Language
4. Building Bridges
5. By My Side
6. What Would You Do
7. Heaven Sent
8. Elegantly Wasted
9. Taste It
10. Strange Desire
11. Hear that Sound
12. Burn for You
13. Biting Bullets
14. Kick
15. Who Pays the Price
16. Newsreel Babies
17. We Were Thrown Together
18. Need You Tonight
19. Beautiful Girl
20. Know the Difference
21. Back on Line
22. Not Enough Time
23. Everything
24. Never Tear Us Apart
25. Faith of Each Other
26. Old World New World
27. Time

Do you have a favorite INXS song? If not, what is your favorite rock n roll band?

I'm so glad you stop by today. Readers are what writers can never live without. The novel doesn't only belong to the writer; it also belongs to the reader as well. Without the reader the story is just ink on a paper and nothing more. Opening the book, reading those first words, this is where the true magic begins. I love readers! Thank you so much for loving books.

Happy Reading!

Six complete sweet to sensual romances from six multi-talented authors in settings that are sure to warm your heart. There's a story for everyone. Let magic of the holiday season take you away where romance awaits.
Included in this Romance Collection:

A Time to Give by Linda Swift
The small roadside restaurant where Ellen works is busy with travelers on Christmas Eve. She is counting on a bonus and tips to help pay for her boyfriend's special gift. Bruce needs a typewriter for college class work and Ellen has saved for months to surprise him. A mother and two children stop in while their car is repaired next door. Ellen learns they have a long drive ahead in a worsening snowstorm with little money and no gifts for the little ones. If Ellen helps them, she can't afford the gift for Bruce. Christmas is a time to give, but how can she choose who has the greater need?

A Christmas Wedding by Celia Yeary
Kailey Lovelace, maid of honor in her brother's Christmas wedding, hopes the best man Alex Dunn won't bolt when he sees she is six feet tall and has frizzy blond hair. At the airport, she almost loses her breath when she learns he's even taller and looks like a dream. If only he likes her enough for the week of the wedding to go smoothly.

Alex Dunn, recently discharged from the Army, can't believe his good luck when he meets his partner for the wedding. Kailey is just the right height and gorgeous, as well. He looks forward to a pleasant week in Texas. What could possibly go wrong?

One Foggy Christmas by Barbara Miller
Lady Jane Faraday is conflicted about traveling to Summerhill for the Christmas holiday since the heir to the estate, and the man who was supposed to marry her, has died. But she has other worries than her guilt over not marrying Henry St. Giles. Stephen, the younger son and the one she loves, is still fighting the war in the Peninsula. If only he had written to her she would know where she stands with his affections. She'd wait for him if he'd say the word, but she isn't sure he's still alive.

Stephen St. Giles receives leave to return home since his beloved brother Henry is dead and the war is nearly over, but what of Jane? She has answered none of his letters. Is she now his brother's widow or did she wed someone else? And why has he heard nothing from his mother? As he trudges the last miles toward home through the fog, he feels as confused and uncertain as his misty surroundings.

Jack and the Christmas Journey by Teresa K. Cypher
Tildie Janson lost her husband, Harp, three years ago, and the only joy in her life is Jack, her husband's dog. Without him she'd be lost. With Christmas around the corner, her friends step in to help her move on by badgering her into taking steps toward celebrating the holiday. They mean well, but she wishes they'd leave her alone. On one of their planned outings, a chance encounter, with a man from her past, forces her to face life again, but the prospect scares her and she retreats. She can't let go. However, Fate-or maybe a touch of Christmas magic sends Jack on a journey that changes everything.

Return Engagement by M. C. Scout
Tanner Armitage has been overseas for nearly a year serving his country and can’t wait to come home to surprise the love of his life.

An Army brat, Brynn Josephs looks forward to when he gets leave to come home though she’s sure it won’t be this year.

Christmas is in the air but can he successfully pull off a return engagement?

Third Time's the Charm by Gerald Costlow
4th in the Modern Day Sherritt Witch series.
Trudy Macalester is a young, single schoolteacher living with her newly remarried father. She discovers her new stepmother is a witch when she stumbles upon a book of spells. When Trudy reads from the book, she accidentally summons a charming rogue bent on seduction; a man nobody but she can see or hear.
