In children’s fairytales, love is magic. In real life, love is magic you have to work hard for.
Every romantic relationship begins with the spark of falling in love, magnetizes two hearts of a prince and a princess, and then moves on to the Big Bang of routine and children, followed by a long, cold winter: the hearts close off, the sexuality shuts down, and the love freezes. The exhausted prince and princess morph into a dragon and a witch, and the relationship becomes an arena of battle and pain.
If they can make it through the struggles along their path – get through the boggy marsh of arguments, accept the long silences, the boredom, the suffocation, and the burning need to escape – if they make it through fire and ice without breaking up, they will discover the final stage of their evolution: the phase of the king and queen.
The king and queen know everything about each other, acknowledge their weaknesses and strengths, the beautiful and the ugly, the good and the bad in themselves and in their partner, and choose to focus on the good. Their relationship contains the initial infatuation together with the struggles of the journey and creates depth and development. This is ripe, mature, fulfilling love.
Happily Ever After is written with humor meant to capture the hearts of its readers. It is filled with accurate descriptions of daily scenes and arouses in (almost) every couple a sense of empathy, the calming feeling that everything will be ok, and the hope of compensation after the hard work of maintaining their relationship. This book teaches readers how to work on challenges in their romantic relationships, instead of running from them.

Every Breath You Take: A Rock Stars and Billionaires Romance (Billionaires in Disguise: Georgie and Xan Book 1)
He says he’s just a guy, but he has a private plane with his name written on the tail and people keep giggling whenever he’s around. She just wants a simple, quiet life, but he wants her.
At a high society wedding, Georgie Johnson is introduced to Alexandre de Valentinois, a hereditary duke of nothing who flies around the world on his private planes and describes himself as “one of those despicable, idle rich men.” Yet, when pressed, he sings at the wedding in a gorgeous, clear tenor that tugs at Georgie’s soul, and miraculously, he calms her paralyzing stage fright so she can accompany him on the piano, even though she thought she had left her classical music career behind when she went into hiding.
But Alexandre has a dark side. His name is Xan Valentine, and he’s the rock star front man for Killer Valentine. He’s famous, but his paparazzi-dogged lifestyle might get Georgie killed.
