1 Year Blogiversary Guest Post by Kathleen Brooks

My daughter’s first birthday is the most special anniversary I have had. My daughter was born 8 weeks early, weighing in just under four pounds when I had to have an emergency c-section. I was told that she would stay in the NICU for 8 weeks, that she’d have trouble breathing, that she’d be behind developmentally, but we wouldn’t know the extent until her first birthday. At her first birthday she exceeded everyone’s expectations. She only spent 10 days in the NICU, never had any problems and at a year was cleared as having no side effects from her early birth. There’s nothing that makes a mother happier than that and that’s why the first anniversary of her birth is so memorable.

Somebody is out to destroy Elle Simpson and everything in her life. Elle has always depended on family to make her business run strong, but long work hours have left her without much of a private life. Just as Elle thinks she has met the potential man of her dreams, she also discovers an imposter determined to destroy her business and life. Can she trust this “Prince Charming” to help her defend everything she holds dear, or will she only leave herself vulnerable at the worst possible time? 

Drake Charles’s work in the fast-growing mobile technology field made him a wealthy, powerful man. But he quickly sheds the fame and publicity for a more private life that earns him the label as a man of mystery. Drake adds to that mystery every year when he hosts a masquerade ball for charity. It’s also his best chance to find the one thing he really wants . . . true love. 

Having met behind masks of anonymity, Elle and Drake enjoy a whirlwind night of romance that leaves them both wanting more. Elle’s heart tells her to trust Drake, but years of fighting off business foes has taught her that anyone could be a potential threat. Will this new romance give them both a fairy tale ending, or spiral into a nightmare for the whole Simpson family?
