Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Gloria has devoted her life to her two sons and has found joy tending her backyard garden. She had no idea anything was missing until Matt strolled in pushing a wheel barrow. The attraction was immediate.
After his divorce, Matt’s goal was to be the best father he could be for his daughters. Toward that end, he’s spent his time in growing his landscaping business. Matt's plans had never included falling in love again.
Love descended upon them in a backyard filled with dying roses. Together, they were able to not only revive the roses, but to rekindle the light of love within each other. Now, Matt has proposed, Gloria has accepted and they look forward to a future together.
Can Gloria and Matt weed through the challenges – including exes and kids – that arise after Matt's proposal and find true love and happiness with each other?
The kids left the room, all of them furious or crying. Gloria glanced at Matt, feeling as if she’d been physically battered. Her whole body ached, especially around her chest area. She wanted to slump on the sofa and sob her eyes out as Patsy had. The kids’ angry voices echoed around the room, though now silence reigned.
Matt put his around her. “That didn’t go so well.”
“You think?” She blinked to prevent tears, but she wasn’t successful.
“Aw, Gloria.” He pulled her into a tight embrace. “We’ll find a way. We have to. I love
“I love you, too,” she murmured against his broad chest. The whiff of his cologne and his nearness evoked sweet memories. After what had just transpired, maybe memories were all she’d ever have. “In this case, I’m not sure it’s going to be enough.”
“It will be,” he said, his mouth near her ear. “These kids, our kids, were brought into this world with love and have been loved all their lives. They’ll understand.”
“I hope so.”
He kissed her. In his kiss was the love he had for her, his want, and his need. Her heart swelled with love, but it also ached with pain for her sons, for the fact their decision had driven a wedge between her and them, between Matt and his daughters. And at this moment, she saw no way this could be resolved.
