The clown took a red balloon from his pocket and began blowing it up. "You think about what kind you want, in the meantime I'll make one for your--"

"Sister," Charity added.

He quickly twisted the balloon into a heart and smiled at her. "You've captured my heart," he said, finishing the balloon.

Charity couldn't help but smile. What a romantic clown, not to mention his deep blue eyes could capture any woman's attention. Even in his clown suit, she could tell he worked out. His body was hard and lean.

Too bad Kirk wouldn't just give the guy a break and let him make a balloon for him. After all, the guy was trying so hard to win her brother over.

Kirk abruptly stood. "I don't want a stupid balloon!"

Charity jumped up, trying to grab Kirk's arm to stop him from whatever he was thinking of doing. "Kirk, please, don't make a scene. Remember what your therapist said. Remember about controlling--"

The man held his hands up, looking totally confused. "Look kid, I'm real sorry. I didn't mean to cause any problems, okay?"

Kirk nodded at him, then swung his fist right into the guy's stomach. The clown quickly doubled over from Kirk's surprise attack and the brutal force of her brother's fury.

Charity gasped. That had to hurt. Kirk may only be fifteen, but he was big for his age. She couldn't believe her brother just did that. She hoped the poor clown wasn't hurt too badly.

She leaned in to check the doubled over man. "I'm so sorry. I can't tell you how sorry I am. Should I take you to the hospital? Is anything broken?"

He looked up at her in a daze. "Just my heart," he mumbled, holding up the remains of the red balloon.

Charity Smith knows all too well what it's like to struggle as a single parent, having been the sole caretaker of her fifteen-year-old brother, Kirk, ever since their parents died in a tragic car accident. Further adding to her frustration are the mounting pressures from her burgeoning career as a reporter - culminating when her boss charges her with the task of securing an interview with the notoriously reclusive young billionaire Ryan Foster. Having reached the make-or-break point of her life, will all of Charity's personal and professional dreams finally come true...? Sweet and sentimental, Anything For Charity is a heartwarming read. Through well developed characters and believable storylines, author Sara Fitzgerald presents a compelling tale with which readers from all backgrounds - particularly single parents - are sure to relate. Charity is further bolstered by the realistic manner in which Charity and Ryan's relationship ultimately materializes, proving that even though happily ever does exist - the road that you take to it is often anything but smooth and carefree. For a quick, yet rewarding read that satisfies on a number of different levels, readers are strongly encouraged to indulge themselves in the pages of Anything For Charity. A touching love story with the power to make a believer out of even the most jaded soul. Tracy Moore Apex Reviews

Anything for Charity is a wonderful story. Charity Smith is someone we all know, someone we could be or have met. She¿s just an ordinary woman trying to get by and make the best of the hand she¿s been dealt. Her parents¿ death and the way she assumes responsibility for her younger brother make her a sympathetic character. Charity¿s actions are endearing and she is a very likeable person, even if she doesn¿t always make the best decisions. Ryan and Charity¿s relationship is very sweet. I loved the exchanges between the characters. The dialogue was perfect in this story, completely believable and entertaining. Ms. Fitzgerald weaves a lovely romance in this charming tale.
