Featured DEC 09 Release - Tender Hearts

What was the song the kids sang in school? First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage. Not quite. First comes three hot days in Maui, then comes the surprise baby, then comes... love? Yeah. The kind of love that sneaks up on you, like a sudden rainstorm, that you don't know is coming until you're soaked to the skin.

What will it take for Billy and Erin to take the chance and admit their love? When tragedy strikes, they have to find strength in each other... for the love of their child.


She was gorgeous as sin.

"Have I come at a bad time?" she asked, breaking his hypnotic trance.

Billy straightened up and leaned back in his chair, bringing up one foot to rest his ankle on the other knee and laced his fingers together at his waist. He tried to exude confidence and calm, but his insides raged and bubbled like molten lava.

"Just a typical day," he answered. "It's busy here from sun-up until sundown. I'm surprised to see you."

She stepped into the room and closed the door, keeping her hands behind her, and leaned back against the hollow wood.

"I thought you would be."

"I'm surprised you were able to find me, since we didn't really have time to share much personal information. I mean, all I know about you is your name -- I think. I know damn well you're not from Loveland, Illinois."


Gail R. Delaney has been actively writing 'for publication' since 1996. The first novel she ever wrote is still sitting on her computer, waiting for the major rewrite that will make it acceptable. She says she has learned a great deal since writing that book, and it shows when she looks back at that rough draft.

Gail has had eight novels published in the genres of contemporary romance, romantic suspense and futuristic romance. Her novels have received several nominations and awards since she was first published in 2005.

Gail and her family recently moved from the cold and blustry east coast to Southern California, and is loving every moment of sunshine she can soak in.
