Comfort books that will make your soul sing

Date: 25th March 2020, Posted by mollie

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.

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 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 savour 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 ourselves. 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.
