Dreams are ruthlessly shattered and truths become commonplace in this follow up to 2011′s When You Come to Me. With the prospect of becoming the successful and nurturing pediatrician vehemently tossed out of the window with the announcement of her unexpected pregnancy, Natalie must face the fact that she is now a married woman, and must sacrifice her happiness for the sake of Brandon's and the growing baby inside her. With resources scarce and time fleeting, Brandon makes the ridiculous leap across the country, to accept a loftier position in Portland, Oregon...without telling Natalie. Brandon then becomes controlling, forcefully suggesting to his new bride, that her place is in the home, where he knows she's safe in a new city. Resentful and jaded by her husband's alternative brand of protection, Natalie rebels in a fashion that no one could ever see coming, and a wealthy young socialite with a womanizing reputation soon occupies her well-placed tunnel vision.
Preview coming soon.
Jade Alyse was thrust into a world of colorful literature at a very early age, pouring through her mother's extensive book collection, absorbing and succumbing to the magic that it possessed. Born in the sleepy, comfortable southern town of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to two young African-American professionals in the mid-eighties, Jade developed an amorous affection for family and the cultural ideals that were instilled in her at a very early age. High-spirited, pensive and observant, Jade's fascination surrounded the engaging dynamic between two people, and the entrancing beauty of a southern atmosphere. Her writing has most frequently been described as vivid and illustrative and readers have been lulled into the picture she paints with each word. Jade can be seen most often with a notebook and pen in her grasp, jotting down phrases and ideas and names. She takes these and pulls them into a vibrant semblance of congruency. Even when she is not working on a novel or short story, she is always writing, always vigilant. Jade completed her first novel, When You Come to Me, in the winter of 2007 and it was most recently published this summer. It highlights the trials and tribulations of an interracial couple attempting to exist in a small, collegiate Georgian town. Jade Phillips' first short story, Rusted Halo, was selected for presentation at the Creative Writing Workshop Weekend at California State University Fullerton in November of 2010.
