Dedicated to my mother, an avid romance reader
There are many people I'd like to thank, but as this story is about a journey, I'd like to thank all the people who helped me on my own journey as I battled the inner demons that writers face on the road to publication.
Special thanks go to Lilly Rain, Cheryl Carter, S. Yousaf, Shazneem Tamana, Melissa Criswell Herman, Meghan Riley and Pati May – thank you for giving me the faith to continue my journey. To everyone else who helped shape this story, thank you
