Finally back home from her five years away, Elizabeth Wray took her lunches on the beach. Breathing in the fresh ocean air, she realized she should have come back much sooner. Her lunch hour was her time to reflect that she was in her element-- when she had the ocean breeze and salty air on her skin. For the past eight months she has been working as a PA for the CEO of a software design company. Doing everything and anything from making coffee, scheduling appointments, giving insights to the newest software program, holding luncheons, and her newest project… helping a coworker plan a wedding! All with the boss’s blessing.
Mark Winston was the CEO and Elizabeth’s boss. He’s demanding and remote, yet has friendly side to him when it comes to the welfare of his employees, as long as he can just contribute and not be involved. Mark’s family has proved to him that people only want what’s given to them, so he keeps people at arm’s length after being taken advantage of so many times, especially by those closest to him.
A surprise birthday present has Mark looking at Elizabeth from a different angle. She’s able to do anything she puts her mind to, as long she stays detached. Mark’s wondering if her past is haunting her to the point she can’t enjoy the present. Can Mark become her new project? What would happen if Mark actually joined her on the beach for those lunches, and possibly even some dinners…

About the Author
I was born in Euclid, Ohio, living in Wickliffe until I was seven. It was then that we moved to a small town in Kentucky. I married young and still live in that small town with my husband. We have three children, a daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren. Our parents all live close by, as well as our children. I love watching my birds on the deck and having herb gardens and fruit trees
I’ve always enjoyed writing. It wasn’t until the death of my middle sister, that I found that I could escape my daily life in writing; it was a great way to deal with the mourn-ing process. The only sharing I did during this time was for extra credit in school and for my friends and family.
My desire to write took a side-burner when I had children of my own. But with time passing, the stories became more like little movies and I knew I needed to write again. As I worked on this book, I never thought I would do anything with it, but as time passed, I knew I wanted to share it! One of my favorite authors, Susan Mallery was go-ing to be at a convention. She kept posting about the RT convention, and so I ended up going to my first one. I learned a lot there and made some wonderful friends (Monica, Damon, and Stephanie), but most importantly, it gave me direction. The second one I attended, I submitted my book to the company I fell in love with through Monica.
I work as a paramedic and love this job also! It’s very rewarding as it is also stressful! EMS does not get the justification as it should, especially when EMS and firefighting are two separate identities as in most smaller communities. Most of my off time is filled with family and getting the time to just stay at home.
