Blurb:
What happens when the man you love falls in love with someone else?

Mayfair Island, Florida. Grief-stricken after the sudden loss of her beloved grandmother, an enduring but reclusive Hollywood icon, young Priscilla Bauer finds herself adrift and looking to find solace in the arms of her vast inheritance, when she meets the kind and considerate corporate brand designer, Michael Frost—a drop dead gorgeous beacon of light in her all too dark night.

Falling hard and falling fast, Priscilla has no idea she’s stepped into dangerous territory...Because someone else has already branded Michael Frost her very own—and she has no intention of ever letting him go.

Passions are high, but bitter vengeance gets even higher!

With Raindrops on Roses, the captivating Favorite Things Novella Trilogy—takes flight!


EXCERPT

Walking into the bathroom, he went right up to the mirror and looked himself in the eye—and that's when he knew.

It was already too late. Too late to try talking himself out of pursuing her. She had left him aching, craving much more of her company.

And although they had been together since high school, he didn't feel this way about Amber—and now he could see that he never had. Raw and exciting passion was a definite first for Michael Frost.

But how did you break up with the girl you lived with? Did you just leave? And when would he tell her? Where would he go? And what if things didn't work out with Priscilla Bauer—would he want to come back to Amber?

These questions strained him, but still they were no match for the unforgettable evening he'd had at Emerald Leas: The soulful music that had scored the occasion. The profound love she had clearly had for her grandmother. Her palpable grief. The formidable efforts she'd made to smile and graciously accept condolences from her guests.

Not to mention the unforgettable hours they had spent together in her bed.

Despite everything, Michael smiled ear-to-ear as he stepped into the shower reliving every moment. More than anything else in the world, he wanted to learn more about Priscilla Bauer and he wouldn't let anything get in the way of that. The mere idea of seeing her again excited him and made him feel happier than he'd felt in years, since he was a young boy.

The pulsing hot water hitting his back felt amazing, almost therapeutic, so Michael stood under the spray longer than usual, allowing himself this time alone to think. He realized that he'd been feeling this change coming for over a year now—a vague unhappiness that meeting another woman had exposed, in high definition.

★★ Millenia Black's Top 5 Books & Movies ★★

Top 5 Books

I must give an honorable mention to THE JEWEL OF ST. PETERSBURG by Kate Furnival, I highly recommend it. It's a wonderfully layered romantic Russian saga that definitely belongs in my top five but I ran out of room!

#5. WELCOME TO THE WORLD, BABY GIRL! by Fannie Flagg. I loved the writing style in this book—it's crisp, intelligent, engaging and witty! The characters grow well beyond the pages and they really evoke your emotions!

#4. BLACKBIRD by Jennifer Lauck. Simply one of the best autobiographies I've ever read—a remarkably touching tearjerker!

#3. THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH by Ken Follett. A surprisingly engrossing epic that grips you with its emotional depth! What it has to offer by way of 12th century English drama, politics and church building may astonish you!

#2. THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO by Alexandre Dumas. The original revenge saga—and what an epic saga it is! For those with the eyes to see it, this book is about much more than you might think. An enduring saga of the soul!

#1. THE GOOD EARTH by Pearl S. Buck. This is one of the most emotionally compelling stories in all literature! A complex rags-to-riches saga set in China that explores life, love and relationships with a marvelously engrossing depth.


Top 5 Movies

Honorable mention of THE GREEN MILE (1999)—a unique and original drama that you can watch over and over and always notice something you hadn't seen before!

#5. THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965). This American staple features an Austrian family that you never forget, and works its way into your heart with its beautifully timeless music and dynamite direction! What's not to love?

#4. BRAVEHEART (1995). I just love the scale and scope of this story, the Scottish setting and William Wallace's unwavering demonstration of true courage.

#3. THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (1994). This unforgettable movie has a most compelling narrator in Red, and top-notch performances! It's what filmmaking's all about!

#2. GONE WITH THE WIND (1939). Simply one of the greatest movies of all time—if not the greatest movie of all time. Many people think it is, hands down. Why? Well, if you've ever seen it then you already know!

#1. THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (2011). A more recent favorite of mine so I'm giving it the honor of the #1 spot! It's a dangerously intricate and unpredictably mysterious thriller with raw and compelling twists that just leave you gasping. If you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for?

And those are my top 5 favorite books and movies—thanks for reading! What are yours? Share them in the comments below and let us know!
