That afternoon, after Mrs. Wilder headed back to the hospital, Celeste decided to

stop at the library. A novel she had been dying to read had just arrived. It was another

beautiful day, perfect for sitting outside in her sunny backyard and working on her tan

while escaping into a good book. As she searched through the stacks of the Best Sellers

section, she couldn’t help but feel like she was being watched. She glanced around

furtively, but saw no one nearby. In fact, the library was practically deserted.

Of course, it’s a beautiful Sunday afternoon, who else would be cooped up in a

dark library?

Finally, she found the romance novel she wanted, the newest one from the series

she had been obsessing over, and made her way to the checkout desk. She turned the

corner and abruptly collided with someone. She dropped the book, which slapped against

the marble floor with a disconcertingly loud thud, echoing through the cavernous room.

“Oh, I’m so sorry!” she blurted, without looking up as she bent down to pick it up.

As she stood back up, her heart skipped a beat. Before her stood a towering, well­built

young man with wavy, raven hair, chiseled jaw, and eyes as blue as the summer sky.

Celeste felt her cheeks grow hot. Embarrassed, she flushed even redder.

“No problem. Sorry, I should have been watching where you were going, I guess,”

the stranger said, eyes twinkling.

Looking into those deep blue eyes, Celeste was completely at a loss for words.

She watched helplessly as he walked away, disappearing further into the library.

Way to go, Celeste.

She stumbled to the checkout counter trying to gather her wits. The librarian

behind the counter cleared her throat. Celeste looked up, confused, as if she’d forgotten

why she was there. The librarian held out her hand and Celeste handed her the book and

then fumbled for her library card. She looked around, but the mysterious stranger had

disappeared. Oak Bluffs was a small town and she pretty much knew everyone that lived

there. There was no way a guy like that would go unnoticed, not in this town. Who could

he be?

Celeste didn’t know what it was about him, but for some reason she just had to find

out everything. And she knew exactly who to ask.

And here she is. . .

G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German shepherd.
