First in the series, “Sleepless In Manhattan” sure gives Paige Walker sleepless nights as she loses her current job in a New York minute! But not one to lay still, an organizer and a go-getter, Paige decides to start her own event planner business with her two friends. Then again having lived a young life of in and out of hospitals, insecurities and fears always shadow her. And here comes the hero Jake Roman0, childhood friend, crush and her brother’s best friend, motivating her, disarming her and riling her to get her dream fulfilled.

Self made billionaire, Jake Romano has overcome childhood abandonment, raised by a loving adopted mother, and he’d worked hard to get to the pinnacle of his success. Supportive and caring of his friends, Paige is his beating heart and he would do anything to keep her protected and help with her success.

As the flare of passion between them reaches fruition, so does Sarah Morgan’s penning of Paige and Jake’s love story. Full of wit and humor, quirks and fears, insecurities and determination, Sarah portrays it all in full glory. Rich with emotions, strong in friendship and passionate in its romance, “Sleepless In Manhattan” is an ultra charming start to the series.

Sarah Morgan kicks off her new Puffin Island Series with “First Time In Forever” set in the beautiful locales of Maine. And the story is classy in its simplicity, painful in its past turmoil, passionate in its new explorations and just purely beautiful in its narration.

Emily escapes to Puffin Island along with her niece Juliet Fox (Lizzie), when she’s given the mantle of guardianship after her stepsister dies in an accident. City bred, fighting past fears of guilt and death, Emily is placed on a precarious precipice of taking care of a little girl she has never met before. Shutting herself off to love and with the support of her two best friends Brittany and Skylar, Emily is hiding on Puffin Island, trying to protect her niece from the paparazzi and learn how to be a parent.

FirstTimeInForever-PuffinIsland1

Pulitzer award winner Ryan comes home to Puffin Island, leaving behind the gory days of maritime reporting and the glory days of being a famous world-class journalist. Raising toddler siblings after his parents’ death, he knows very well the responsibilities of parenting and the many fears that come with those responsibilities and truly understands the fears that Emily is facing. Meeting with Emily brings to the surface what Ryan’s been missing in his life and wants to take Emily into his folds of love and protection.

Sarah Morgan weaves a really emotional story of love and support, fears and insecurities, warmth and protection that Puffin Island gives freely to its residents. The insightful conversations between Ryan and his Grandmother are beautifully placed as him romancing and helping Emily face her fears. Emily is one beaten but courageous aunt wanting to protect her niece from all the bad in the world, even if she has to overcome her past fears.

Sarah’s narration is brilliant and you can’t but help inexplicably be drawn into the lives of Ryan and Emily. The flow of the story is smooth as silk, and the introduction of characters at various strategic curves in the story is perfect. Laced with wit, filled with pain, supported with unconditional love and with a hint of more romance walking the beaches of Puffin Island, “First Time In Forever” fills you with hope and faith that good exists with the bad, relationships can be built through hearts, and love and support does exist on unconditionally.

I’ve always liked Sarah Morgan and her sweet romantic stories. They are charming as the fuzzies of romance, deep with emotions and intensity and characters that take you on a roller coaster ride of laughter and tears.

Lily Rose believes in love to the very end of her soul. Despite being an orphan and tossed around, despite being bitten and betrayed, despite being a sick and unwanted child, she believes in fairy tale love and happy endings. Archeologist by daytime and moon-lighting as a cleaner to pay her student loans, she is one heck of a sweet, lovable, positive person, who cannot keep from talking nineteen to the dozen if her life depended on it…. and is all alone!

PlayingByTheGreekRules-Jan2015

Enters Nik Zervakis, her infamous Greek playboy/billionaire employer and their first time encounter is wet and hot! Nik Zervakis is anti-family, anti-emotions, anti-love, and runs in the opposite direction of any woman who sheds a tear. But Lily stops him in his tracks and he agrees to be her rebound sex toy and teach her how to wear Kevlar vest to ward off emotions, love and pain.

An agreement of just sex takes Nik and Lily on a journey of turbulent emotions as both try to get over a painful past and belong with each other. Nik fights hard not to fall in love, and Lily is just looking to become someone’s favorite person, for a lifetime. Rules get thrown out the window and the heart rules this game of love.

“Playing By The Greek’s Rules” is a charismatic story of rib tickling dialogues, of empathy and support and getting past barriers for a future together. There were sections of Lily’s past that tears you up, yet keeps a smile on the lips with her enthusiasm and zest for life.

And hello Puffin Island – here we come!!!!

A wonderful start to her new “Puffin Island Series”
