A die-hard romantic, JM Gryffyn fell in love with words when she read Ray Bradbury’s All Summer in a Day at age twelve. After that, her goal was to write her own stories about people who don’t quite fit into the world at large. She believes in love at first sight but is quick to admit love forever is tougher to achieve. Still, she refuses to give up hope—and so she writes about just that. She lives in Texas with her two Australian Cattle Dogs, whom she spoils almost as much as she did her two amazing daughters back when they were little kids. JM wants to go on record thanking all the folks who encouraged her during her years as a fan writer. She is absolutely thrilled to join the Dreamspinner family.
The last thing war-weary veteran William O’Sullivan expects to find while walking his family’s property is the love of his life, but that is exactly what happens. Under the summer sun, well-born Irishman Will meets gypsy lad Brock, and the two are instantly love struck.
Their newfound love may be rock solid, but so are the obstacles in their way. Will is expected to marry his childhood sweetheart and produce an heir for the family estate. Brock has his own waggon now and is expected to marry another Traveller. The roads to their futures are embedded firmly in the past—and don’t include their love. Running off to America seems a perfect solution, but in the mean streets of New York City, they very quickly find that even a love as strong as theirs must be earned.
