Do you love revisiting your favourite stories or discovering new books to love?

Hi my lovelies,

Do you love revisiting your favourite stories or discovering new books to love? Writing fiction and reading fiction is the best, cheapest way to live a totally different life. 

Re-reading one of my favourite stories is still total escapism. Setting Flight of Passion in Mexico with joy and love was incredible fun. And, as always, as an artist, I love love stories with art-related themes. I went to Mexico many moons ago and met a lovely couple from New York who I have stayed with and remain firm friends with. I loved my time in Mexico and recall being surrounded by butterflies as I rode my bike in Oaxaca to visit some ancient ruins.

I did a FB live the other day in my FB group, and I’ve loaded it to my Youtube channel. I share insights into my writing process, my new WIP, Stolen by the Sheikh and an excerpt from Chapter 24 Flight of Passion. Can you figure out what the ruthless Carlos has planned for our beloved Ruby? Watch and listen here.

The incredible feedback has blessed me.

Flight of Passion is a rapturous tale of beauty, obsession, and unconditional love’s transformational power. Here’s a little bit more about one of my favourite love stories:

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 find a rare butterfly with the ability to save his sister’s life, he’s unwillingly distracted by former flame Ruby Diaz — a woman who callously abandoned him eight years earlier. When he decides he wants to reclaim the beauty as his own — in his mind, it’s as good as done.

But Ruby’s not his for the taking. Promised to the son of a wealthy landowner, she refuses to succumb to his charms. On a quest to save her family’s land, Ruby knows she must put duty first and silence the passionate stirrings of her heart. But Oliver doesn’t make things easy for her. He’s not taking no for an answer.

Risking everything to help the woman he loves gain her freedom, Oliver entangles himself in an emotional net that alters his life forever. As he sacrifices his own selfish pursuit to help Ruby, he realizes that you may be able to own something, but you can never own someone – especially the woman you love.

Have you ever wanted to be with someone who sent your heart soaring but threatened your sense of security? Someone who lifts you clear out of the water, but you’re not sure will be around to catch you when you fall head over heels in love? Or do you know what it’s like to sacrifice your own needs to put others first? Then you’ll love this heart-warming romance. 

This is a standalone clean & wholesome romance novel. It’s also Book One in my True Love series. It contains a guaranteed HEA and a tale of romance that will capture your heart. 

Curl up with this beautiful romance and live a different life

Here are some more of the 5-star reviews:

“Fast-paced, heart-wrenching, completely unexpected twists, excellent storyline, and a hell of a good read.”

“This book is a carefully crafted, truly original story. Mollie’s wonderfully descriptive narrative paints a picture in which it is easy to lose oneself. A touching and heart-warming book, well worth a read.”

“I fell in love with Ruby and Oliver, they are so good for each other, but both are so filled with garbage that their families filled them with, that they can’t see what’s in front of them. And when they finally realize that diamonds don’t have a hold to what they had, they are about to lose it. The butterflies remind me of how ethereal life is and it is up to us to not waste it, but live the fullest and best we can.”

“If you like a romance of the Romeo and Juliet ‘starcrossed’ lovers kind, get this book. Mollie spins a lovely tale set in exotic climes and lifts us out of our own reality while we travel a twisting journey with Oliver and Ruby.”

Look how beautiful the cover for the print edition is.

Flight of passion is a beautiful heartwarming, clean romance—no swearing, no sex…just love, with all the hurdles you have to overcome.

J.K. Rowling is right when she says, “In the end, love wins, we know it does.” You’ll learn how Ruby and Oliver, my second chance lovers, win their HEA in the end.

“Metamorphosis surely isn’t a pleasant experience for the caterpillar, yet it results in the transcendent beauty of the butterfly.” ~ Anon

Butterflies in my garden after Cyclone Gabrielle
Butterflies making love in my garden after Cyclone Gabrielle

“One of the most beautiful signs I’ve ever received came to me while I was sitting with a few buddies in the park discussing relationships—especially the difficulty men have in choosing between a life of prolonged bachelorhood or intimate marriage. My friend had just separated from his girlfriend and was torn over whether or not he should celebrate his new freedom or go out and buy an engagement ring. During a moment of silence, two monarch butterflies flew between us, spiralling up and down in the air like flirting lovers. Nature was showing us a model of how two creatures can be together and not interfere with each other’s flight.”- Andrei Ridgeway
