Many people say family is everything. There is nothing more beautiful than two people coming together for the sake of a child, finding love, and forming A Family Forever. From marriage-of-convenience to second-chance-at-love to pure Irish-fairytale fantasy, A Family Forever Bundle brings you sweet, emotional stories of romance and love that arrives unexpectedly and culminates in happily-ever-afters that will leave you smiling. So brew yourself a cup of tea, settle on the sofa (or under that big beach umbrella) and enjoy these three full-length, contemporary novels.

Included in this bundle:

A BEAUTIFUL STRANGER – When wealthy but emotionally wounded Sean Hudson arrives to claim his new daughter, he discovers the adoption hinges on the impossible. Unless he finds a wife immediately, the tiny orphan will be snatched away from him forever. But before he can abandon hope, a beautiful stranger proposes a surprising solution—marriage.

MADE IN PARADISE – For ten long years Amber has believed her child was lost to her forever. Then an unexpected inheritance leads the lovely doctor back home… to the man she’s always loved. There she discovers her beloved Jon is a bachelor father, and the little girl he is raising is their daughter!

A REASON TO BELIEVE – It seems like a grand idea, temporarily trading her pixie wings for a womanly form to help handsome widower Paul Roland with his baby girl. And the moment she holds the precious bairn in her arms, Fern knows true happiness for the first time. But she never anticipates the dizzying emotions she feels for the man who not only needs her as a nanny, but as a woman whose passion can heal his wounded heart. Suddenly the forbidden fairy rule she gently bends is in danger of being irrevocably broken.

Couples coming together for the sake of a child and finding… A Family Forever!

#Blindsidedbyhomosexuality A problem with a #GayCharacter…Really? Review of Past of Shadows

I woke up this morning to a lovely review. A one-star review. Now, I’m not a stranger to one star reviews. When I first came out as an Indie Author, I got slammed by a group of trolls that eventually became known as the GoodRead Trolls. They went after my book, Seductive Secrets.

I mention this because there is a similiarity. Seductive Secrets is a historical romance, romantic suspense book, but the main secondary character is gay. I don’t write gay romances. I write romances with vivid characters, which includes having a gay character if the storyline takes me there. Charles is one of my favorite character I’ve written. I wrote Charles because my daughter, who is gay, told me that growing up, she never read a book with a positive gay role model.



The original title was Daughter of Deceit. I changed it to Seductive Secrets and my penname to Colleen Connally. I had to…I was running from the trolls. To this day, I swear I was attacked because of my character Charles.

Now, I just got a nasty review on my series, The Three Realms, Past of Shadows. Reviews are hard to come by now adays for me. My writing has slowed down due to an injury three years ago that has left me in constant pain. I took to revising an old fantasy series I had written. My next release is in just over a week. So, the timing of this review, in of itself, is questionable.

So, this morning, I was excited to see that I got another review on the first book, Past of Shadows, until I looked at it.

Yes, some of my books have gay characters. This character, Johannes, is one of a dozen side characters in the book…but I’m not going to apologize for writing about a gay character. You would think by the review that the character went on an orgy. (He didn’t even have sex. It was just acknowledge that he was gay.) I’m not going to apologize for writing likable, smart, intelligent gay characters. I’m not.

Saying that, the sad fact is that it does hurt sales because I don’t write to the gay community. My historical romances are traditional romances where boy meets girl. Not all my books have gay charcaters, but when I feel the need, I include them. What author gets slammed for writing a gay character in her book?

I feel for the reviewer. I do…and I will pray for her. Yes, I consider myself a Christian and go to church on Sundays. But I understand the struggle of being gay. My daughter didn’t get up one morning and decide to be gay. This is who she is and always has been. She is the sweetest, most caring person I know. I’m so proud of her.

So weighing my options as an Indie writer, would it be best not to include gay characters? Honestly, the answer is yes. I have been told the smart thing to do is to write to the wants of your readers if you want to succeed. But I have never written for the money. I write the story inside of me.

I’m not going to lie. It hurts to read a nasty review. I’m only human. But this review just makes me sad that someone has so much anger in her. There is too much anger in the world, way too much.

Professor Joshua Kingston thought he’d found the perfect nanny for his son. But once Cassie Simmons stepped into his life, she turned it upside down! His son no longer played by the rules – and Cassie kept making up new ones. He would fire her – if he didn’t find her so utterly enticing.

Cassie had a huge secret to hide, and she couldn’t afford to lose her new job. But her handsome employer wasn’t making things easy. All those silly rules. How was an eight-year-old boy supposed to have any fun? The professor definitely needed a lesson in laughter – and love!
