Between Two Worlds is a thinking woman’s romance series that begins with Hello, My Love!, the world of “bright, blonde, beautiful Elise Halverson” who is focused on her career. One that – as far as she knows – does not involve men like Greg Thorpe.
Elise Halverson is a compassionate young woman in her last year at law school. Inexperienced in love, she distrusts playboys like Greg Thorpe. Dark, good-looking, internet-business owner in the San Francisco Bay Area, he finds Elise intriguing, so unlike his fiancée Lori, the type of dark-haired, seductive beauty he escorted around.
Elise and Greg butt heads and spar at her parents’ dinner parties. She discovers someone more than a flashy playboy, and he finds that she touches him at his core like nobody else has. A strong attraction grows between them and leads to an unexpected night together two days before his wedding.
Lori threatens revenge. Her machinations tear Greg and Elise apart, revealing doubts and insecurities they have within themselves and forcing them to make choices.
They reunite but Greg is in for a surprise and their lives are thrown again into disarray when Elise becomes the victim of a hit-and-run. The specter of Lori’s revenge looms. How do Greg and Elise weather the trials they face?
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The challenge of translating the plotlines of Austen and Gaskell novels into contemporary times and incorporating modern-day issues is my primary driving force. Also, I wanted to write a more realistic romance novel, one that some readers may recognize as similar to their own stories and concerns.
