The Eyes of Love Blog Tour and Giveaway


THE EYES OF LOVE
By
Angelina Rose

BLURB:  

After a tragic loss five years ago, Sally Overby becomes an Attorney in Atlanta. She convinces herself that all she'll ever need again is her young son, David, and her life as an attorney. Until one day, Colin Dean barges back into her life and promptly blows her safe world apart, driving her crazy as only a guy she'd had a "school girl crush" on can.

Sally is wary to love deeply. Only, with every loving look Colin gives her plus every sweet kiss, as the attraction between them sparks, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the one she should be with. And although Colin didn’t realize his life was going to change so quickly, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether. The one for Sally’s heart.

Will Colin be able to convince her that's it safe to love him... and that forever isn't really out of reach?

The Eyes of Love is a novella… so you can enjoy it in just one day!



Except 2 of The Eyes of Love

"There is no fight," Sally said throwing her hands up. "I was just defending Colin..."

"I know, and I agreed with you. Steph and I have not been friends for years. I just can't associate myself with someone like her. But I remember how spiteful she could be, and I just wanted to tell you to keep your eyes open, that's all."

"I will. And thanks for the reminder," Sally said.

"Well, I'd better go. Thanks for not kicking me out when I came knocking on your door. I wish you all the best, Sally, and if that is with Colin Dean, then I will say you are one lucky lady!" she said as she stood up and walked to the front door. "If there's anything I can ever do for you, please don't hesitate to come find me at the church, okay?"

"Will do. Thanks for coming by, Camelia," she said as she opened the door and watched Camelia walk down the sidewalk toward town.

As Sally got ready for bed, she kept running Camelia's words through her mind. What on earth could Stephanie have in store for her now? Here she was, a grown woman and a professional attorney. She knew that Stephanie was vindictive, but it did worry her a little bit that she didn't know exactly what the woman might try to do. One thing was for sure. She would have to be on her guard and keep her eyes open while she was in Mill Creek Crossing.


Review:

The Eyes of Love is a sweet novella that can be read in just one sitting and is perfect for a cozy evening with a nice glass of tea and a warm puppy at your side. Sally is the mother of a young son trying to cope with being a widow. When her high school reunion pops up, she decides to go, if only to see Colin, a boy who she had a massive crush on but who now happens to be the ex husband of the girl who tortured Sally relentlessly through school. As the two reconnect, Colin doesn't remember her, but as realizes who she is, he can't help but feel horrible at the way she was treated. Sparks fly and second chances are born out of the bruises of the past. A sweet story and I enjoyed the read.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

Angelina Rose has wanted to write ever since she could hold a pencil. The first daughter of immigrant parents, Angelina had her head buried in books, lost in a world of heroes, heroines and exotic places.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Angelina's author career.

"I awoke in the ICU... I had been unconscious for several days," Angelina says.

In 2010, Angelina had a long stint in hospital following her involvement in a motor vehicle accident: the longest time off work (as a Registered Nurse), she'd ever had in her life!

It was then she took up pen and paper and started to write again, just as she had done when she was a child. She wrote four short fiction stories for young adults, entered them in several competitions, and managed to win three first prizes!

After happily dipping her toes into writing those short fiction stories for young adults, Angelina has now authored four books in a new "Mill Creek Crossing Romance" series... contemporary romance intended for adults.

The "Starting Over Series" is another contemporary romance series she wrote about a subject she knows well... nurses and their love life. At a recent reunion of her graduating class, she could not help but notice how the same girls would group together and laugh, chat, and even shed some tears over their lives since graduating. Many of the girls had divorced... so Angelina thought "what if a group of the nurses came up with a plan to meet in two years and have a new love story to share?" Then the first story in the series was born.

There is always a story running around in her head. A man with thick dark hair, gray-blue eyes, with an engaging smile and a quick wit... or a girl crying over a broken relationship. She finds herself talking to these characters during her day: when she's doing dishes, or bathing babies at the hospital. These characters crop up on days at the beach or on walks through the neighborhood. This is how the stories start to grow.

Angelina's mother was an author, so Angelina grew up with a love of words and stories. If she wasn't writing a short story about something that took her fancy, her head was buried in books... reading, reading, reading, as her brother constantly told her...

When she's not spending time with her goodlooking man, or quality time with her laptop, she's working at the hospital, hanging out with her family and friends, or walking her two dogs around the neighborhood. Angelina spends as much time as she can traveling, then coming home and including some of those adventures in her stories.

Angelina really loves to hear from her readers and she invites you to connect with her on Facebook as she interacts daily with her readers there!

  2. From the excerpt, it sounds like there is some left-over high school drama and angst revisited!
