Todays Teaser is taken from Innocence my upcoming release 14th May 2015
Calvin Edwards has everything he could dream about— perfect lifestyle, running the family real-estate company back in London. He takes a holiday up north to visit his parents only to find a young pregnant woman attempting to take her life. Wishing to help, Calvin becomes a friend to her, only fears he’s out of his depth. Just when he thinks he can do this his past resurfaces, sending his life crashing.
Kacey is pregnant and her life is out of control with nowhere left to go. She descends on her mum for one last chance for help, only to have the door slammed in her face. At her wits end, she is alone, scared, and helpless until Calvin comes along. He becomes a dear friend giving her kindness, something she thought no longer existed in the world. Only she finds what she’d pushed to the back of her mind through selfish pain is back. Her past with all its mistakes has come back to life!
“You okay Calvin,” he heard a female voice.
He looked up and saw the owner of the pub walking briskly toward him.
He sighed and felt the warm sun on his face, forcing him to squint his eyes needing to put his sunglasses on.
“You don’t look it?” Miranda said, being in her late forties and worked in every department in the pub, but today wearing her apron guessing that she was head chef.
“I’m fine, just trying to think what to do with my female friend.”
“What do you mean?”
“She has nowhere to stay, parents don’t want her and I daren’t take her to my folks’ home as otherwise they would kill me and then there are other reasons.”
“Is she the one who is expecting?”
“Yes, and no I’m not the father,” he said before she jumped to conclusions aware how gossip spread like wild fire in the village. The last thing he needed was becoming the village gossip and people were always quick to assume.
“Like I would dare think you were and anyway, I’m sure if you were about to become a father your mum would be headlining it, they often talk about when are you going to give them a grandchild.” She giggled.
“Yes, Mum does keep asking me when am I settling down and giving her grandchildren.” He laughed. “However, no, she’s a friend and, well needs somewhere to stay.”
