Overview

Being a part of the Reid family, Delaney Grace Reid has seen her share of dreams come true. Her grandmother began the fairy tale and most recently, her cousin Jake found his true love and married her in a picturesque wedding on the Fourth of July.

Delaney has always been a realistic dreamer. She knew from an early age that Donovan Taylor was the only man she wanted to marry and never wavered in her twenty-two years of life. Not much different from her favorite fictional heroine, Cinderella, her initial "courtship" with Donovan paralleled Cinderella's relationship with the wicked step-sisters and wicked step-mother, combined. Also like Cinderella, she looked upon each day with a smile and hoped that he'd notice her and become her prince one day. Even with the help of "Jaq," "Gus," and "Bruno," (namely, Jake, Emily, and the Reid family), Donovan never actualizes his feelings for Delaney, and at the end of their ball, she reluctantly chooses to look elsewhere for her prince.

At last the glass slipper is found, and Donovan comes to realize what's been lost and chases after our princess in no less a fairy tale-fashion. He courts her through Europe and proves to her that a "dream is a wish your heart makes," and that he will make all her dreams come true. Should Delaney believe in this dream come true or should she beware of enemies lurking about to squash her final hope?

Unlikely Attraction is for the young at heart who wished upon a star, once upon a time. It will make your heart feel like it's falling in love for the very first time, and when not feeling giddy with joy, tears of heartache will flow. This book is for lovers and dreamers who know that their prince will come no matter the obstacle before them. For princesses who believe that their glass slipper is half-full, this is the story for you. Half-empty princesses need not download.

Meet the Author

I started writing back in Dec of 2009 after I saw an interview with Stephenie Meyers. She told Oprah that she always had stories in her head and that struck a chord with me. Whenever I drive, I have all kinds of stories circulating in my mind. Generally, I am the star of this story and many wacky things happen. Of course, I make the story quite complimentary and beneficial to me. I guess you could say Meyers channeled my head case into a novel.

I am first a wife and a mother, as well as a restauranteur and a caterer. Writing is my last profession and a late-found one. I have a B.A. and an M.Ed from UCLA (yes, just like Emily from Indelible Love) and taught 1st grade for four years till I had my first child, a son. Two years later, I had my daughter and the two kids ran my life till they both started school. My husband and I opened a restaurant in LA when we first got married and have been in the food service industry for almost 17 years.

I think I’ve always been a foodie at heart and though it sounds strange, loving food did not have anything to do with opening up a restaurant. That was all my husband’s idea. I didn’t even know I could cook till I got married. And then I discovered, I love cooking! I love everything related to food. Eating, first, cooking second, cleaning a definite last. I could do without the cleaning from the prep work and the mound of dishes created after a meal. But, that’s a whole other blog in and of itself. Whenever we plan a family trip, and especially when my husband and I go on a couple’s trip, it’s based around what we want to eat, or which restaurants we want to visit. Hubby and I did a trip to Austin one summer just to eat BBQ. The trip to Rome was for pasta, Tokyo was for ramen and sushi, and in Paris, we gorged on treats from all the beautiful patisseries. The two best meals of my life were at Taillevent and Joel Robuchon in Paris. All of these places and restaurants sound familiar? :) NYC is our favorite city (and yes, Emily’s favorite city as well) for dining. But… I digress.

Even with the crazy schedule, I hope to keep writing. Indelible Love - Emily's Story and Indelible Love - Jake's Story were my first two attempts at writing. Entwined, my third novel, as well as Indelible Lovin' - Max & Jane's Story Vol. 1 & 2 have also been self-published on Amazon, Smashwords, iBooks, Nook, and Kobo. I am currently working on another story titled, Unlikely Attraction, as well as a new Indelible Lovin' blog. This can be read for free on my website every Monday and Thursday starting Dec. 2013.

Thank you for taking an interest in my writing and I am truly humbled and grateful for the outpouring of love Indelible Love has received. Check back for updates on my writings, travels, and everything Reid/Taylor/Davis.

    Fairytale love story

    I truely loved this story. Donovan and Delaney's relationship started off rocky but they worked things out in the end. I am jealous of all the places these two were able to travel to in the book. Gives me hope that one day I will find something close to Prince Charming.

    Can't get enough Reid-ing! This is the 5th novel, so if you find it confusing start with Indelible Love- Emily's story at the beginning. You won't regret it! It's jaunt into young love, or finding your true love. These series are glimpses in Jake and Emily's post-happily ever after, and the shadow they cast. Love the characters, and the author!

    Loved It!

    DW Cee has outdone herself. I laughed, I cried and thoroughly enjoyed this book. We got more insight into the Reid family and I loved how tidbits from DW's previous books were either referred to or showed up completely.
