Cara Mears has a good life...simple, satisfying, and safe.

She owns a successful company, has loyal friends, and a decent relationship, and has convinced herself that this is enough.

This is a life she knows how to navigate. 

Enter Dylan Madigan, her long-time movie-star crush, devastatingly handsome, arrogant, and famous.

The bigger-than-life movie star turns Cara's life inside out and upside down, but is it for the better?

What happens when dreams actually become reality?

“I really hope all you fellow readers that enjoy a great romance novel will be swept away in the book as I have.” - Goodreads Reviewer

Dylan leaned back in his first-class seat with his long legs stretched out in front of him, his headphones in his ears. His eyes were closed, and he slowly became aware of the flight attendant hovering over him, asking if he would like something to drink. Removing one of the ear buds, he gave her a dazzling smile. “No, I’m fine, thank you.” 

She returned his smile and moved down the aisle of the plane. Dylan leaned back and looked out the window, putting the bud back in his ear.

He was tired. He had encountered a mob of paparazzi at the airport in New York this morning, and totally lost it with a rude, relentless photographer who kept shoving a camera in his face. Christ, how he hated that shit! He found it ironic that he so loved a career that nurtured that insanity. 

Thinking about his purchase of Bradford House, he smiled. He’d fallen in love with North Carolina when visiting a friend on a movie set a few years ago. While he wasn’t crazy about the altitude in the mountains, he found the Piedmont area very beautiful with its rolling foothills. It reminded him of his home in Ireland. He was anxious to see how the renovations were coming along, and even more anxious to know when he would actually be able to move in. It would be a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate between projects. 

As he glanced at his watch, Cara flashed through his mind. He wondered what she was doing right now.

Cara. What was it about her he couldn’t get out of his mind? Everything. She intrigued him. She was beautiful and charming. And real. 

But there was something fragile about her, something he couldn’t quite put his finger on, and he didn’t want to scare her away. He wanted to know everything about her. On the phone earlier this week, he had been able to coax her to share a bit about herself. He loved her soft, Southern accent, and wanted to listen to her talk for hours on end. 

He would move very slowly and cautiously. Somehow, he knew she was not one to be toyed with, and he didn’t want to make any mistakes. There was something between them, a connection. He had experienced the coup de foudre the moment he had turned around from the bar and took her hand, and hoped that he wouldn’t do anything impulsive or stupid to fuck it up. 

Even though he sensed a vulnerability in her, he also sensed a hidden sensuality underneath her polished and proper surface. The thought made him shift in his seat, and he realized he had to steer his mind in another direction, now.

His thoughts were interrupted by the Captain’s announcement that they were beginning their descent, and the flight attendant was beside him, asking him to raise his seat back and fasten his seat belt. 

He checked the time. Was Cara waiting for him to call? Was she as nervous as he was? It had been a very long time since he’d felt this way about any woman. He actually had butterflies in his stomach, and smiled at the feeling. 

This was good, right? He nodded to himself. This was very good.

* * * * *

I am a southern woman, born and bred.

I love the beach, cooking, gardening, sweet tea, cats, good books, music, and warm, sunny weather.

Growing up as a child of blind parents gave me a unique perspective of life. Watching my parents struggle to overcome adversity in order to provide a normal life for me and my brother, I learned the meaning of tenacity, self-reliance, independence, grace, and the true importance of family. 

I am a glass-half-full-girl to my very core.

As a young girl, I kept a diary, which led to the habit of keeping a journal and writing short stories. I’ve spent my life writing in my head.

I’ve always had an open book nearby, soaking up the adventures that transport me from my daily life to exotic, exciting locations around the world.

Someday, if someone remembers me as a kind, compassionate, and strong person, I will have lived the life I always wanted.

*~*~* Blog Tour *~*~* Curtis - A Coyote Ridge Novel by Nicole Edwards

Title: Curtis - A Coyote Ridge Novel

Series: Coyote Ridge #1

Author: Nicole Edwards

Genre: Adult, Erotic Romance

Published: March 15, 2016

“I’ve always believed for every person there was only one love that would last a lifetime. I never understood quite what it meant until I met you though. You’re it for me, Lorrie. You are my love that lasts a lifetime.” ~Curtis Walker

A love story 50 years in the making…

Curtis Walker has lived his life to the fullest and he attributes that to the woman who has always been by his side. The one thing he knows with absolute certainty: he can’t live without her. Especially not now.

A love that has withstood the test of time…

It’s no secret that Curtis and Lorrie, the proud parents of the seven wild and rowdy Walker brothers, have found their happily ever after. Now, it’s time for the emotional journey of how they got there.

When you fall head over heals for an author and anything he/she writes, you grow a certain anticipation for what they could possibly give you next. This book was a highly anticipated one from the stand-point of whose story it is. 
It's no secret, The Walkers and Alluring Indulgence series is by far my favorite series of Nicole Edwards and to finally get Curtis' story was 3 years waiting well worth it!
Curtis and Lori have the family and the love everyone dreams of. Love. Devotion. Strength. Values. And they have instilled every single one of these values in all of their boys! The most important value though is LOVE! 
From the beginning, Curtis just knew he was going to make Lori his whether the clueless little girl knew it or not. 
50 years later, and that love, devotion. strength and values still shine through. And Curtis has got it going on! Even at the ripe young age of 70! Holy smoking sheets!!! I can only hope and pray to be as lucky as Lori is when I reach that age. 
This is again the start of an amazing spin off series Nicole is giving us and I can guarantee you will feel every emotion through this wonderful story just as I did.
