A workaholic thirty-something couple and a baby…
Josie Cooper’s got the perfect-for-her life. This former small-town-girl has worked long and hard to grow her computer start-up into a company to be reckoned with. She’s also found her soul-mate in brilliant, quirky, and extremely sexy architect Cooper McBride. And they’re happily—if busily—living out their HEA in Manhattan, the City that Never Sleeps.
The ongoing journey of a happy marriage is one that needs constant work and compromise, but Josie and Cooper are experts at thinking creatively to make their lives and relationship vibrant and thriving.
But when Josie’s brother and his wife are killed in a car accident in the mountains of Tennessee, their two small children—four year old Lucy and nine month old Ben—have nowhere to go, unless Josie and Cooper step up. “I saw a baby once,” Josie tells Coop, “but that’s the extent of my experience…”
Outside-of-the-box thinking is this power-couple’s forte, but adding two understandably needy kids to the chaos of their lives is a daunting challenge—one that will test them in unexpected ways…
With footnoted commentary about everything from pre-smartphone life in 1994/1995 (when Embraced by Love was written, published, and is still set) to thoughts on writing romance and how much Romancelandia—and her own writing—has changed in the past twenty-something years, Suzanne Brockmann presents a special annotated edition of one of her very earliest books.
Set in 1995, Embraced by Love is a full length novel of 64K words (76K with annotations) or 240 pages. It was originally published in 1995.
The recluse billionaire of New York
Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.
So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money.
We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding.
I’m impatient and inexperienced.
The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets.
And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
