Dear Reader,

Ever feel like you’re drowning?  In FOREVER AND A DAY, my hero Dr. Josh Scott is most definitely drowning.  He’s overloaded, overworked, and on the edge of burnout.  He’s got his practice, his young son, his wheelchair bound sister, and a crazy puppy.  Not to mention the weight of the world on his shoulders from taking care of everyone in his life.  He’s in so deep, saving everyone around him all the time, that he doesn’t even realize that he’s the one in need of saving.  It would never occur to him.

Enter Grace Brooks.  She’s a smart smartass, and thanks to some bad luck, pretty much starting her life over from scratch.  Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor working as Josh’s dog walker.  And then his nanny.  And then … before he even realizes it, his everything.  In truth, she’s saved him, in more ways than one.

Oh how I loved watching the sure, steady rock that is Josh crumble, only to be slowly but surely helped back together again by the sexy yet sweet Grace.  

And don’t forget to pick up the other “Chocaholic” books, LUCKY IN LOVE and AT LAST, both available wherever books and ebooks are sold.

Happy Reading!
Jill Shalvis

*******Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis Excerpt********

By noon, Josh wasn’t even halfway through his day, and he’d already been overloaded, overworked, and quite possibly teetering on the edge of burnout.  He could feel it creeping in on him in unguarded moments, like now when he was parking his car between his house and the beach to deal with Grace Brooks.

He knew who she was.  He’d seen her around.  Blue eyes, a quick smile, long, shiny blonde hair, and a willowy yet curvy body that could drive a man right out of his mind if he gave it too much thought. 

As he walked across the sand towards the water, doing his best not to give it any thought, he caught sight of her in the water.  She was facing the waves, her hands on her head in a distraught pose.  With a frown, he picked up the pace, just as something dashed towards him in his peripheral vision.

Something small.  
Something evil.

Something named Tank.  Josh scooped up the sand-covered puppy and held it away from him.  The pug wriggled intently, running in air, trying to get closer to Josh.  Finally giving up, Tank refocused his attention on the woman in the ocean.

“Oh, I see her,” Josh said.  “And what the hell have you done now?"


I absolutely LOVE these next three books in the Lucky Harbor series and can not wait for more from author Jill Shalvis. If you've not read this series you are missing out!
