About the Author

Once upon a time, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I used to lie in bed at night and make up stories in my head. At the age of eight, seduced by the feel and smell of a fresh sheet of lined writing paper, I began writing them down. Those first stories, heavily influenced by the "Lad" books of Albert Payson Terhune, were usually about the grand and glorious relationship between a dog and its human. But by the time I reached the age of twelve, a curious thing happened to those man/dog relationship stories: I started writing about human relationships instead. Love stories. And although there have been many variations on that theme in the years since, I'm still writing love stories. I can't imagine writing anything else. As a matter of fact, when people ask, as they occasionally do, why I write what I write, I refer them to a well-known quote from the amazing Stephen King: "What makes you think I have a choice?" Yes. Exactly! Although I now write on a computer, I still find myself unable to resist the siren's call of a new pen and a writing tablet. I collect those pretty little bound journals that I find in Barnes & Noble. The problem is, I never end up writing in them. They're just too perfect and pristine. So they sit on my bookshelf, gathering dust, while I do all my writing at the keyboard. And the next time I'm in a bookstore, and I see another one, with its lovely blank pages and colorful cover...well, let's just say it's an addiction I can't explain! I've written and published a dozen books, the first three with small publishers; the six that followed were published by MIRA Books, a division of Harlequin Enterprises. My first book for MIRA hit the USA Today bestseller list, and several of my romantic suspense novels also made the Waldenbooks romance bestseller list. These days, I'm self-published, and loving every minute of it. I just finished book number twelve, and I can't wait to dive into the next one! I've lived my entire life in Maine, although my heart resides in Boston. I must have been born to the wrong parents; I was supposed to be a city girl! But my husband likes it here in Maine, and I like my husband, so there you have it. We have two grown kids, two beautiful grandchildren, and two adorable grand-dogs. Life is good. When I'm not writing, I can often be found at my easel, painting with acrylics, or shooting sunrises and sunsets with my Canon camera. Day trips to Boston help to keep the writing well filled, and I get most of my story ideas driving around the back roads of Maine. I love to hear from readers!

I LOVED this book. It follows 3 people, who on the surface have no business being together, but turn their talent into greatness. I love how the book takes you through the years, and surprises along the way. I also recommend the following books. Very well thought out plots that don't leave you wondering where it ends.

OMG...I don't know where to begin, yes I do. First I want to congratulate Laurie Breton on writing a full length, awesome book, so few authors today are doing that, instead we get short pieces of a story they call "series" and have to wait for the next short part. Thank you Ms. Breton. This book spans approximately 16 years and 3 main characters who I never once got tired of reading about. MY only issue, (and for me it's a big one) is that when Casey and Rob get together for the first time, Casey says such things as, she never felt as in love before, she was never this happy before, and at one point even insinuates that her and Rob should have been together from the beginning, this story broke my heart a few times and yet again when I read this part because for her to think that means her and Danny as well as Katie was all a lie, I think that inner monologue could have been more respectful to Danny, Katie and the reader. Just my honest opinion.

Lots of ups & downs throughout these 400 or so pages. This could be a stand alone book. DW
