Release day: The Go-Between
Today is the official release of The Go-Between by Darcy Delany (book 2, The Modern Day Fairy Tale series) (ebook and paperback, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
Amalie Duckworth has been harangued by her perfect boss, Natasha, for years. While she dreams of running her own business and wearing a fishtail wedding dress, the pictures symbolising her goals seem destined to grace her ‘Wall of Destiny’ indefinitely.
When Amalie loses her job in a departmental restructure, she’s determined to get her revenge on Natasha by making her dreams come true. Inspired by her own bad break-up experience, she starts a business: The Go-Between Break-Up Facilitator Service. One dream down, one to go.
Carpenter Dean Lawler is taken for granted by his troubled childhood sweetheart, Zara. He’s in love limbo, caught between his desire to make Zara feel cherished and his own need for emotional fulfilment. But when he catches Zara cheating, it’s the break he needs. He calls Amalie to help send Zara packing, only to find himself entranced by Amalie’s inner and outer beauty.
When Zara returns, Dean is forced to choose. Will he fall for Zara’s damsel in distress routine? Or will he choose true love with Amalie, and make both their dreams of a happily ever after come true?
Darcy dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I love a good ‘goodies vs baddies’ story, and had a great time writing this one! Amalie and Dean are two lovely people being taken for granted at work and home by Cruella De Vil types, until circumstances push them to change their lives. They accept the challenge and as they work towards their dreams, fate brings them together. But their happily ever after is in jeopardy if they can’t move past their old relationship patterns. A sweet, light romance loosely based on The Ugly Duckling, The Go-Between is a story about triumphing over cruelty and saying ‘yes’ to the life of your dreams.
