About the Author

 

SONIA DE LEON – Hello readers and friends! I am a mother to 3 girls, and live with my husband in the south suburbs of Chicago. My love of reading began around the age of 7 when my parents decided that my siblings and I were too obsessed with watching television. So they did what any normal, rational (where is my sarcasm font?) parent would do, and threw the TV out. When my siblings and I smuggled it back inside in the middle of the night, they reacted in a similar normal and rational manner, by throwing the TV out of the second story window.

And thus began my love of reading, an activity that still tightly binds my siblings and I down to this day. Worlds unraveled before my eyes as I solved mysteries with Nancy, explored a chocolate factory with Charlie, and discovered Narnia alongside a talking lion named Aslan. From the age of 7 on, you could almost always find me with a book in hand. In my teenage years, I discovered VC Andrews, LJ Smith, Diana Gabaldon, and Morgan Llywelyn. As a woman, my favorite authors are Laura Kinsale, Penelope Williamson, Colleen Hoover, Mia Sheridan, and (still) Diana Gabaldon. My favorite stories are the ones that make me forget, inspire me to live, and enrich my undying belief in happily ever after.

~A Beautiful Thought Teaser~

~Gail~

My nerves were now out of control with anticipation of seeing Damon for the first time since meeting him at Pearl’s party.

A waitress appeared at my side. “What can I get you to drink, hon?”

I rotated to face her, and I chose the first drink that came to the front of my mind. “A screwdriver, please.”

“Going right for the good stuff.” She grinned. “Give me just a few, and I’ll be back.”

“Sure. Thank you.”

Within minutes, the waitress promptly returned with my drink. I sipped on it while watching the baseball game on a flat screen hanging from the ceiling. Oh-so slowly, the tension in my body dulled. At least, that was the case until the second my eyes caught sight of Damon striding through the front double doors. He was wearing a white collared dress shirt with the sleeves cuffed at his forearms. His dark denim jeans had a light-colored stitching.

My pulse pumped uncontrollably as he approached the same woman at the front counter, and he offered her a friendly smile. The young blonde briefly spoke to him before pointing my way.

Damon spun around, searching the crowd. When his eyes met mine, he revealed a heart-melting smile that defined the curve of his strong cheekbones. I was pretty sure my heart faltered for a few beats before kicking into an uneven rhythm. I forced myself to swallow deeply as he began to close the distance between us. His stride was composed, radiating strength and confidence. His brown hair was shorter than I remembered, and his tanned honey skin contrasted his soft blue eyes, making them appear calm and alluring. It was a strikingly hot mix.

I stood to greet him. My knees felt weak, but I ignored the sensation as I smiled shyly. “Hello, Damon.” I kept it short and sweet, so I could not lose control of my voice.

“Nice to see you again, Gail,” he replied, not missing a beat.

The deep throatiness of his tone sent awareness trickling down my spine. I resisted a shiver at the sound.

I gestured to the chairs adjacent to us. “Shall we?”

“Of course.”

After taking our seats, my adrenaline kicked into overdrive. I didn’t have the slightest clue how to get this conversation rolling, so I began with something simple. “Would you care for something to eat or drink?”

“Sure.” He glanced down at my drink, and then back up at me. A mischievous grin revealed itself within his expression, making my heart stutter. “I see you already got started without me.”

I shrugged, going for innocence. “Liquid courage and all…” I trailed off, realizing that was probably too honest of a response.

His eyes shimmered, and the corner of his mouth slightly twitched with humor. “Not a bad way to go,” he teased.

I had to laugh. “That’s what I thought.”
