Today we have a sneak peek from author Mary M. Forbes’ contemporary romance novel,One Dance with a Stranger.
Emily feels it is important to hide her sordid past. She does not believe love will ever have any place in her new life. Her job and her respectable fiance are achievements that she has no intentions of jeopardizing.

I like New Year’s resolutions and setting goals. On New Year’s Day, while my husband and I recover from the previous night’s festivities, we watch football and I open the new desk calendar. It has become my tradition to sit with this calendar and copy, from the old one, the birthdays and other important events I will need to remember during the brand new year.
