One day I will finally explode and bite the next person who sits on a crowded train for only one stop.
Just breathe in deeply.
Take in the scent of knowledge
concealed in leather.
Sometimes after personal training, I feel like the Hulk.
Come on–cooperate with me. I’m doing the best I can to burn more than I consume, but man does it feel like it’s going nowhere.
The frustrated librarian
Why is it broken?
How can I live without it?
The Internet’s down?
Hell is a place that you can only get to by taking a local N train.
Dear Woman Who Shoved Me While We Were Getting Onto An Empty Six Train,
I’m going to pretend you tripped rather than shoved me, because the idea that someone could be so self-absorbed to not notice what they are doing to another person is an ugly thing to think about.
The librarian who you shoved to battle for all the seats
What kind of monster
dogears pages in a book?
May your fingers burn.
The fateful day Mimi Marcus has dreaded begins with a phone call…
The wife of a U.S. Marine, Mimi spent countless nights worried that her husband Joel would fall in the line of duty. He had fought valiantly and served his country with honor. That’s exactly what they tell her when they deliver the news—Joel was taken by the enemy in Afghanistan. Her husband is dead.
In desperate need of closure, Mimi travels to the one place Joel still has ties—The Marcus Ranch in Texas, inherited by his handsome younger brother Austin.
New beginnings are only an illusion…
The closer Mimi grows to the Marcus family, the more she considers it home. But when suspicions of Joel’s past surface, Austin refuses to disclose family secrets—even to his brother’s widow. It’s only by accident she uncovers evidence of Joel’s tainted past. Devastated by his lies and betrayal, she slowly opens up to Austin, and together they unfold layers of pain and grief.
Mimi is sure she’ll never love again, but is Austin the man to prove her wrong? Then the unthinkable happens…
Just as Mimi finds new hope in a future with Austin, Joel returns home from war. Enraged, traumatized, and teetering on the edge of insanity, Joel confesses to a history of deception, revealing yet another secret—this one too terrible to forgive.
In an awful twist of fate, Joel proves marriage vows are made to be honored.
No matter what.
