Meet the Author

OK, so first things first, I am new to this business and I'm just barely breaking the surface to this Romance Race, but I plan on being very well-known. So, just think of me as the competition. ;)


I am fascinated by SOUL MATES ~ are you? Are you with your soul mate? Have you found them yet?


Many have been fascinated by the term “soul mate”. What does it exactly mean? Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary describes the word “soul mate” as being ~ “a person who is perfectly suited to another in temperment and a person who strongly resembles another in attitude and beliefs…”


We all want to find our soul’s mate ~ our one true love ~ or love of our life. Have you been there yet? Have you found them? Did they find you? Do you know what it feels like to love someone with little or no struggle at all?


I find soul mates fascinating, that’s why I write about them. In "Unsuitable Obsession", Amber & Eduardo are both married to other people but find an unexplainable easiness and love in one another. In "Dare To Love", Gwen & Thomas grow up feeling a bond more powerful than just friendship. In "Magnet & Steele", the story between Nancy & Angelo transcends time and the love they have for one another stays in tact while the years pass by them until fate steps in with the help of their children. In "Diary of Regret", Leila falls head over heels for Xavier, not really knowing why the pull to him is so strong; believing that one day he’d wake up and realize that she is the one for him in the end ~ his soul’s mate…


Yes, I am fascinated by SOUL MATES, and I won’t stop writing about them. Take a look, check out my books ~ I know you won’t regret it!

    Very poorly written. Worst story line I have read so far from free ebooks. Would not recommend this book to anyone.

    What a struggle

    This book provides the classic example for the need for a proof reader and an editor. A good dictionary to look up the meanings of words, and a crash course in english grammer would not have hurt. Though the story held some allure, it was difficult to wade through the fog of mis-used words, poorly written sentences, changing perspective, and ignored tense. Ms Fuentes? I sense talent in your writing - get a proof reader, at least. Preferably someone who knows grammer and vocabulary.

    Amateur writing style, poor plot consistency, good message

    This story was written by someone who can't concentrate on a plot. It has very poorly defined lines between present & past. The characters are not well defined & ambiguous. It wasn't a good book, but had an excellent point.

    It made one realize what you could lose by being stupid & selfish. I never was a stay at home mom, but worked. The temptation to cheat does happen, especially when the hubby is being a selfish dolt & you are shouldering all the responsibility & don't get to be the fun one.

    If you can stumble through the amateur plot & writing style, it's a good story.

    Good story but...

    Was I the only one distracted by the writing style? The story kept jumping between past and present tense. I appreciated the plot idea but was disappointed that the writing style felt amateurish.

    Good Book!

    Really makes you think about what you have to lose. Being a stay at home mom, like the character in this book, there is a lot. Very good!

    I was entertained! Short story though!

    If I had known this story was only 62 pages long, I probably would have passed it over, however, I am glad that I read it. Having been a stay-at-home mom, I found this story to be an entertaining fantasy. Plenty of lust, friendship, and unconditional love for those of us who love a happy ending.

    Grammatical errors

    The author will start out a paragraph in first person then switch to third person. She needed to stay focused on one form of writing. Just a weird book all together.

    Disappointed

    Disliked the majority of the story. The storyline could have been much better & the ending was horrible. Overall i was disappointed.
