The decision that tore them apart...
Former hopeless romantic, Mia Trent, is crushed when the love of her life, Nate McArthur, reveals that he doesn’t want to get married—or have children. But it’s too late. Mia is already pregnant and her dream of “happily ever after” is sharply put to an end when she decides to keep her pregnancy a secret, refusing to force him into a life he doesn’t want.
The compromise that made them a family...
Five years later, Mia must reach out to Nate for help or risk losing her home and shelter for their son. Stunned and outraged by the sudden news of his child, Nate proposes a compromise: give him the summer to get to know his son and he’ll save her home. Yet with Mia back in his life, Nate isn't willing to lose her—or their son—again. What starts off as a temporary arrangement soon becomes a chance at rediscovery and becoming a family. Only Nate must convince his jaded dreamer that his love for her is true…and will last now and forever.



As she rinsed the last dish, Mia jumped when strong arms suddenly wrapped around her middle.
“Sorry,” Nate whispered into her ear. “I didn’t mean to scare you. I thought you heard me.”
She turned off the running water and leaned against him. “No, I was lost in my head. What did you say?”
Nate leaned down and kissed her on the back of her neck. Mia shivered. No matter where or how many, his kiss always left her lightheaded.
“I asked what’s for dessert,” he repeated, kissing her again.
Mia turned in his arms, laughing. “That’s so clich√©, you know.”
“What do you mean?” he asked with mock disbelief.
She rolled her eyes. “Oh, please. You say ‘what’s for dessert’ then I say something ordinary and then you say something cheesy like wanting me for dessert.”
He looked down at her, thoughtful. “Hmm, that does sound like something I’d say. But this hungry man could actually still eat.”
“Oh,” Mia said, a little embarrassed by her rash assumption. He was serious. Nate wasn’t a small guy and could honestly still be hungry. “Well…” she began lamely, “I don’t have anything else to feed you.”
Nate’s eyes sparkled. “Yeah, you do,” he whispered. He placed his hands on the counter to either side of her, trapping her between his solid frame and the sink. “I said I could still eat.”
Mia paused, confused. Then she laughed, recognizing the heated suggestion in his eyes. “You’re bad,” she murmured, shoving at his hard chest.
He leaned in closer, his lips only a breath away from hers. “And you like it.”

Author Interview

Give us a bit of your background (where are you from, your family, traveling adventures). 

I’m a Florida native currently living in New York City. My family is from Haiti and though I was born in Miami, I can speak Haitian-Creole adequately. Right now, I’m juggling my writing, my master’s program, and teaching writing to college students and adults. When I’m not in my writing cave, I’m exploring Netflix, reading on my TBR list, catching up with my neglected family and friends, or scouring the JetBlue site for cheap flights down to Florida.

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go? 

Scotland, Egypt, or Australia. I have stories set in each—though I can’t promise any writing will get done while I’m there.

What is one silly fact about you?

In college, my nickname was “Moments” because I had more “Blonde moments” then I care to admit. I’m sad to say that sometimes I still do…

Why do you choose to write clean/sweet romance? Do you write steamy romance as well?

For the “Because…” series, I kept them sweet to sensual because I felt it was more appropriate for the character’s story. But I have a special project I’m currently working on for 2014 that’s steamier then what I’ve written so far.

What is the most rewarding thing about being a writer? 

Sharing my stories with people and having them get invested into the story and characters as much as I did.

Do you have a favorite comment or question from a reader? 

I’ve been getting lots of positive feedback from readers on my book, Because This Is Forever, and I couldn’t be happier. One email I recently received from a reader that had brightened a particular down day for me: “I purchased Because This is Forever, and have read it twice. I looooved Nate, Mia, and Mikey's story.”

Where do your ideas come from? 

From everywhere and nowhere. An idea would spark in the most random places, like watching dishes or taking a shower. Or it’ll be inspired by a person or a movie or photograph.

Please share about your book.

Because This Is Forever is a moving tale about love, forgiveness, and family. Mia, a hopeless romantic, loses her true love, Nate, but gains another special boy in her life. Unfortunately she later loses her support system and is forced to ask the man who walked out of her life for help. But what start off as a temporary arrangement soon becomes a chance at rediscovery for them both—and a chance becoming a family.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book? 

I tell can’t tell you why you should read my book but I suggest if you do, to read it from the heart and no place else.♥
