Video Friday – I Will Remember You

March 2007 to February 2008, I taught kindergarten in Seoul, South Korea. That year I also had a tutoring student. One of my little girls realized in September that at the end of the year (which in Korea is February) I would be leaving. Leaving the country, leaving her life, she’d never see me again. She was mad. I guess she wanted to get it out of the way early. Anyway, one afternoon as I was dealing with that, I was heading to my tutoring student when this song came on my iPod. Like a ton of bricks all her anger and my own sorrow at losing these kids who I loved like they were my own hit me and I nearly started to bawl in the middle of the sidewalk in Seoul. I pulled myself together and got to my appointment, but I couldn’t listen to this song for years after.

The entire Drawn To the Rhythm series is out…

…and it’s on sale. Now is your chance to get all the books at a discount (or free) and know what happens to every member of Touchstone.

Book 1: Satellite Of Love

satelliteofloveThey love each other. Will the rest of the world let them?

Reluctantly on her way to a blind date, second grade teacher Maureen detours into her mechanic’s garage because her brakes are squeaking. Her regular mechanic isn’t there, but his very intriguing brother Michael is. Michael tells her that he can’t let her drive home with her brakes in that condition and offers to take her out to dinner in his 1972 Plymouth Satellite. Maureen can’t believe how powerfully she’s attracted to this grease monkey and neither can any of her friends, but since he’s only going to be in town for a week, she doesn’t want to waste an instant.

Except that grease monkey is no grease monkey. He’s Bear D’Amato, rock n’ roll drummer and in a week he’s headed back to get ready for a world tour with his band, Touchstone. When he first meets Maureen, he just wants to go out with her a few times like a normal guy, but as the relationship deepens, he realizes he wants more than just a couple of dates. He wants a lifetime.

Maureen is shocked by his revelation, but she wants a lifetime too. Now all they have to do is convince the rest of the world.

Bound by blood. Bound by loyalty. Bound by love.

Florian has it all: excellent fashion sense, a kickass job with his best friend, and a hard-won place among Silverton’s werewolves. When a pack of females pads into their territory, Flo’s alpha dispatches him to handle a merger. Total cakewalk. Except Keely, their alpha, has no intention of submitting her wolves to Flo’s larger pack. Worse, a single glance from her baby blues sends his eloquence on vacation and his heartbeat into overdrive. His flirtations seem welcome too, but there’s a snag. She doesn’t know he’s a vampire.

While Flo struggles with his conflicts—obey his alpha or win over Keely—his estranged sire blasts into town with a catalog of radical ideas. And hanging out with unsophisticated werewolves didn’t make the list.

With violence in the air and all sides testing his loyalties, Florian must bite back, even if showing his fangs costs him the girl.
