Jason “Jase” MacLane grew up surrounded by money. Being half of Anderson-MacLane Industries had its privileges and provided a rather comfortable life for Jase and his siblings. Sure his family worked hard for that money, but to the opposite sex, that’s what made Jase so damn attractive. His luck with women, and love, sucked. It took a few ex-girlfriends, and one cheating ex-wife, to cement the idea that he’d never be worth more to a woman than the amount of money he had in his bank account.
Cassandra “Cassie” Middleton grew up in a working class family, surrounded by more love than money. When her parents died, Cassie stepped in and took care of her teenage sister, while putting her own life on hold. It took one selfish ex-boyfriend, and one distant ex-husband, to prove to her that she was better suited for the role of caregiver and mother than for what she wanted most – to be desired and loved for who she was, rather than for what she did.
When Cassie buys the old Potts Farm out from under Jase, the compost hits the fan, and then the sparks fly. Cassie sees Jase as more than a means to financial security, and Jase see Cassie as more than a mom and a provider. However, the demons from their past relationships prevent them from seeing themselves for who they really are. It will take trust, perseverance, one hell of a wild ride, and the willingness to risk it all, just one more time, to find the love they both deserve. Sometimes, you just need to find the right person to help you drive out your demons…
About the Author
R.J. Van Cleave is the last of four children and was raised in a small town just east of San Diego, California, where she still resides, today. From the time R.J. was a small child, she wanted to be a doctor or have lots of babies. Her sixth grade teacher ignited a passion for science that carried on into high school, where she also happened to fall in love with a cute guy and American and British literature, courtesy of another great teacher (the literature part, not the cute guy- she blames that on her sister). She went on to attend the University of San Diego, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Biology, and a minor in English Lit. Forgoing medical school for motherhood, R.J. married her high school sweetheart, got a job in the bio-tech field, and had her first child. She quit her full-time job to become a stay at home mom and eight years later, she and her husband were surprised to discover they were having twins. A few years after that, her mother died unexpectedly, and R.J. inherited her father and her mother’s two dogs. She currently spends her days buried under mountains of laundry and cares for her three daughters (the Teen and twins Frick & Frack), her husband (the Man-child), her father (the Old Fart), and a menagerie of animals . All while attempting to write down the stories of the characters that have taken up residence in her head. R.J. would love to hear from her readers and engage in real adult conversations, so please, drop her a line. R.J. can be contacted by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, found on Facebook under R.J. Van Cleave, and on twitter and Instagram @rjvancleave.
