About the Author

Homemaker, mother of two grown sons, and former off-the-desk publisher of a family-oriented print small press, (1984 thru 1999), The Pink Chameleon, that she now publishes on line, Paula was raised by her grandmother and mother, and has been writing for as long as she can remember. Even before she could set pencil to paper, she would spin her stories in the recording booths in the Brooklyn Coney Island Arcades for a quarter per 3-minute record. She states, "I love the English language, love words and seeing them on display, typed and alive. A romantic at heart, I write simply and emotionally. One of my former editors kindly described my work, '...her pieces are always deep, gentle and refreshing....'" Paula further states, "My stories are sensitive, deeply emotional, sensual when appropriate, yet non-graphic, family fare, pageturners. My hope is that my writing will bring entertainment and uplift the human spirit, bring a smile to your face and your soul, and leave you filled with a generous amount of hope."

I loved the set up for this romance--a hero who needs a cane to walk because of an accident early in life. The heroine (Jenny) doesn't notice the hero (Ron) until he saves her life. After that, she tries to become friends with him, but for some reason, he won't let her close to him. She ends up giving up. Years later after college, their paths cross once more, and when Ron's father has a heart attack, they are thrown together by a couple of meddling (but sweet) mothers who hope to make a love match.
I really like romances that feature a crippled hero who has to learn that he's worthy of love, and this novella didn't disappoint. It's a sweet romance. The characters are likable, and I love how that the economic differences between Jenny's family and Ron's family didn't prevent them from getting along. It's people (not money) that is ultimately important. That was a wonderful lesson that was presented in the book, in addition to the love that looks beyond someone's outward appearance to seeing the value within.
