Patience is the power that rewards

Mollie MathewsI’m happy to report that Forever and Always has gone live on Audible. It’s hard to believe that one of the wealthiest companies in the world were too short-staffed to release this audiobook and other books earlier. But patience wins.

I am still patiently waiting for Claimed by The Sheikh and also The Italian Billionaire’s Christmas Bride to be released on Audible. It’s been over five months now. Hard to believe. Still, right now, there are greater urgencies in the world.
If you or someone you love has had their careers upended in the wake of the Coronavirus, my short love story, Forever and Always,  will hold special magic. As I share my in my Author’s Note:
I can relate to Danielle Steele who says to always be on guard against envy. “Envy is a very ugly thing and very dangerous. You have to protect yourself from it every day.”

As with all my stories, Forever and Always, was sparked by a true event, or rather several true events.

I started to write this short story following a toxic work experience. It’s a love story—so of course, it had to have a happy ending.

As the opening quote of this book suggests, sometimes the worst of times can turn out to be blessings in disguise.

Publisher’s Summary

Will Lily and Leonardo end up giving their hearts to the wrong person?

Still reeling following her malicious sacking, family therapist Lily Rose is feeling rejected and low in spirits. Even worse, she’s broke. The last thing she needs is more money woes. Which is exactly what happens when she collides with billionaire water magnate Leonardo Ermenegildo Bressolini’s mint-condition Lamborghini.

Having found a place to retreat from the madness, greed, and malevolence of his ex-wife, the last thing Leonardo wants is complications. But he is a man in need of a housekeeper. And Lily Rose owes him. Big time.

What they both don’t know is just what a massive impact the crash will have on their lives. Sparks heat into a collision of powerful forces that can’t be dampened.

Spontaneous love on the beach sends deep passions and emotional connection – more heartfelt than either has ever known – steaming to the surface.

When Leonardo’s past comes careering into his future, will both Lily and Lorenzo end up giving their hearts to the wrong person?

Forever and Always is a short, clean romance, full of quirky humor and the promise of a happily ever after. Set in The Bay of Islands, New Zealand – one of the most beautiful, unspoiled, and sensuous places in the world. Forever and Always is part of Mollie Mathew’s best-selling series Passion Down Under Sassy Short Stories. It can easily be listened to as a stand-alone story, but you’ll love listening to the other books, too.

Bonus content: Enjoy the first three chapters from Mollie’s most popular books: Married by Christmas – animosity and undeniable attraction that make the tension soar, Flight of Passion – a rapturous tale of love and obsession, and Claimed by the Sheikh – discover the secret the world was never meant to know.

Curl up with romance and savor these delicious, clean, sweet, and tender love stories.

What I’m working on now…

This is the first day of a one-month lock-down in New Zealand. We’ve been asked to stay home, not leave (unless we run out of food or need the pharmacy, and to socially isolate. I count myself lucky we live where we do, but my thoughts and prayers go out to others not so fortunate.

I’m still reeling from the shock of not even being able to travel to see my daughter. It’s early days to stay what I’m working on now (for myself) but for others,  especially in my other life as a therapist, I try to help, heal, and provide hope.

You may enjoy or find comfort in my blog,  How to be the rock that resists adversity—mind, body and soul food during COVID-19.

You’ll also get a peek at some of my healing art. As you know, many of the heroines in my love stories are art therapists in various guises.

Dear Readers

 

Since we are all going to spend more time indoors, why not make the best of it?

It’s the perfect time to read or listen to books of heart. So many of us need a positive distraction and something to make us feel good again. Which why I’ve bundled my most popular full-length books and included a whooping price drop…(I know many people are under incredible financial strain)

which means – 5 FULL_LENGTH BOOKS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE

And
Five beautiful romances which will stay with you forever

Five Happily Ever Afters Boxed Set contains the first five full-length books of my romantic novels set in the captivatingly beautiful landscapes of New Zealand, Fiji, Italy, New York and an exotic desert kingdom.

 

If you adore beautifully written stories and true heart-warming (sometimes frisky) romances which sparkle with humour you’ll love travelling along the road to love with these changing and evolving men and women as they escape the wounds of their past, open their heart’s, and find true love.

 

The five romance books included in this bundle are:

 

The Italian Billionaire’s Christmas Bride

Sometimes two wrongs make a very passionate right…

 

Last Christmas, art therapist Issy Riley was jilted by her fiancé. This Christmas she’s running away. A week with a client on his private Fijian island promises to save her from cheating men and the London festive season. But when the client turns out to be a gorgeous and magnetic Italian billionaire, he threatens her resolve to never again trust her heart to the wrong man.

 

The Italian Billionaire’s Scandalous Marriage

Why is everyone afraid of the truth?

 

When a lonely young American woman inherits a painting she discovers her whole life was a lie. Desperate for the truth, she goes in search of her true identity. The painting is her only clue. But everyone is determined to keep its secret past repressed, including Vitaliano Rossi, the Italian gold tycoon, unnaturally suspicious of her motives, who wants the painting vanquished. How can she discover who she really is and convince him that his love means more to her than gold?

 

Flight of Passion

Past love and passionate obsessions…

 

Billionaire property investor Oliver Hart is used to getting what he wants. Single, thirty-five and a committed bachelor, he plays by his own rules. On a personal quest to discover a rare, elusive and very valuable butterfly, he’s unwittingly distracted by a former flame, Ruby Diaz—a woman who callously abandoned him eight years earlier. Deciding he wants to reclaim the beauty as his own, in his mind, it’s as good as done. But Ruby is not his for the taking.

 

Claimed by the Sheikh

The secret she kept from the Sheikh…

 

A grief-stricken Sheikh Tariq na Hassir, the formidable ruler of the Kingdom of Avana, arrives in Paris to claim his brother’s child after a car crash killed his parents–unaware that the child isn’t their biological son. Salim is Tariq’s son, with his former lover, a renowned architect. Tariq will do whatever it takes to protect his legacy, including claiming Melanie as his bride and his son as heir.  But Melanie has other plans for her future.

 

AND MY NEW RELEASE…


Sex With Strangers

Once in a pink moon, Ruby has to play dirty…

 

44-year-old Ruby Evans doesn’t want to be a ‘leftover girl.’ But finding a ‘forever’ man is proving impossible. Humiliatingly and cruelly ex-ed when her husband trades her for a younger model, Chanel Zest, a long-time friend and motivational life coach, comes to her rescue.

 

Escape into romance with this beautiful box set. Five Happily Ever Afters Box Set is a fun read with healthy doses of escapism.

Here’s to more love, less fear, this year.

 

Why do you love audiobooks?

Some people say audiobooks aren’t for them, however, I love being able to listen to books when I’m traveling or block out noise when irritants surround me. I also love being able to listen to people who share their stories and write and narrate their own books.

Recently I listened to Elton John‘s first and only autobiography Me in audiobook. In part, it’s narrated by him and another person. No doubt a good balance for a busy superstar.

I also have audiobooks by Danielle Steel and Nora Roberts—sadly, not narrated by them, but still good books.

I know from experience it takes a lot of time to write and edit and produce an audiobook. I narrate my own books and am steadily working through my catalogue.

Currently, I’m listening to Michelle Obama’s book Becoming Michelle. I love that it’s in her own voice —it’s really lovely to hear her. It’s very soothing  and inspiring for the soul.
I also respect that there are very many people who cannot read.

They might be dyslexic or have never been taught or learned to read. Audiobooks makes a world of wonder., knowledge, and empowerment accessible to others. People like my picture-framer, Peter who told me recently that for the first time he was accessing Victor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning.

Peter is dyslexic. He is getting so much joy from listening to Frankl’s wise words of hope, happiness, and healing.

I first read this book in paperback when it was gifted to me by a fellow student on my psychology course over a decade ago. in the book Christopher wrote

 

May your search for meaning always be filled with hope, love, and beauty.

And

Thank you for reminding me, that life truly is beautiful [even in Palmerston north!]

Dear readers, it is my wish for you that your life is also filled with hope, love, and beauty. What a wonderful way to be.

More love, less fear

Dear Readers

 

Life is rough right now for so many people. The “global pandemic” has people arm-wrestling over toilet paper at WalMart, events are getting cancelled, the stock market took a hit, and here in New Zealand our government has asked many people to voluntarily self-isolate. Who knows what’s going to happen next.

 

Since we are all going to spend more time indoors, why not make the best of it?

 

It’s the perfect time to read or listen to books of heart.
