The Marcy Series, which at this point includes: Rage, Confusion, Agony & Ecstasy, The Agreement, and The Past Returns, is a continuing story. It is a story about three people and how their lives intertwine. There are other characters involved with the three, but the focus remains on them throughout the entire series. It is an easy read, but it can be intense, as well as light-hearted. It is a love story, with a thriller/suspense aspect to it.
The story begins with my protagonist, Marcy Jensen, an independent, stubborn young woman, who runs her own bakery and coffee business. Some may find her full of rage and behaving irrationally. If you’ve ever experienced this type of anger, you may relate to Marcy and her problems; if not, you may not understand her. If this is the case, try to picture a moment in your life when you were the angriest that you can remember, and multiply it times a hundred. Then you’ll have an idea of what this young woman is experiencing.
As the series continues, the reader learns more and more about Marcy’s life and why she behaves the way she does. Eventually, her love interests are introduced: Brad Preston, a hard-working financial genius who works in the banking industry, and Liam Brooks, a retired ex-military hero who understands Marcy’s anger better than anyone. Liam helps her deal with it by having her help him get revenge. Throw in their friends and family and this becomes a story of three people whose lives are confusing, intense, and passionate, but loving, warm, and lively as well.
Writing this story, I truly fell in love with my characters. At first, two of them seem quite flawed, while one seems perfect. It isn’t until we delve into their lives, that we realize they have more to their personalities. I try to make each novel as satisfying as possible while continuing the story to the next book.
This story is fiction, but there’s more realism to it than most may know. Hopefully, whether it touches the readers in a familiar way, or is completely out of their realm, I hope it takes them to another time and place and into others’ lives. I hope it brings an escape for as long as they are reading, and gives what it gave me…a satisfying ending and closure after spending many hours with my favorite people: Marcy, Liam, Brad, and their friends and family–even when they annoyed me, made me laugh, cry, or roll my eyes.
There are currently six novels in the series.
Blurb for The Past Returns:
Marcy and Brad’s marriage is back on track even with the major changes at play.
A new wedding is planned for New Year’s Eve. This wedding is a complete surprise to everyone, and an unexpected pregnancy may interfere.
The men in Marcy’s life become even closer, and a true bond is formed.
A Short, but Telling, Excerpt:
The tears are pouring down my cheeks. I can’t believe this. This man was in love with me from the moment he saw me, and he knew nothing about me.
I understand it because I seemed to feel a sense about him from the beginning. I let him in my home late at night, a perfect stranger, but I felt it was all right. It’s like my soul was speaking to me as well. Maybe I’m as crazy as he is.
What I don’t understand is if we were meant to be together, why did I meet Brad? Why am I in love with two men? I’m so confused. No wonder he doesn’t mind coming here and staying. This place is his sanctuary. It’s our place…a place where no one can take me away from him.
