Thankful Author 2016- Charlotte O'Shay

I count myself lucky to live in this time and in this place. (Something tells me that even though I enjoy reading historicals, I’d be a disaster living in any time prior to 1920 and I am thoroughly a New York gal.)

I am truly fortunate to be in good health. Without it, nothing else is possible. I wouldn’t be able to care for those I love, do work I adore or enjoy this crazy, beautiful world.

I’m blessed by the circle friends and family who are always there either in person or online. I count on their shared wisdom and encouragement. I treasure the time we spend together laughing.

Included in these friends are the readers who took a chance and read my debut romance. Thanks to all of you! Book Two A Model Engagement, which is Lacey and Connor’s story, is coming soon!

But I’m most thankful for my husband. He’s the definition of a Type A individual. He’s tough and he’s a softie. He’s a man of tremendous generosity and integrity who loves our family and me more than anything. We are each other’s rock and safe harbor.

GIVEAWAY As a token of my appreciation to my readers, I will gift a paperback copy of The Marriage Ultimatum, to one person who comments on this post to be chosen at random.

 The Marriage Ultimatum is Book One in the Three Book City of Dreams series. Each book can be read as a standalone but has characters that appear in all three stories.

Coming soon:

Book Two: A Model Engagement
Book Three: An Illicit Affair

Blurb/The Marriage Ultimatum:

Dead-end job? Dreary apartment? Disastrous love life? Check, check, and check. Toddler who makes it all worthwhile? Absolutely. Juggling work, college, and the care of young Alex was never Sabrina's plan.

But Sabrina's dreams are bigger than any curve ball life can throw at her. Her top priority is keeping her small family together, no matter what the cost.

Vladimir Grigory doesn't believe in dreams. He earned his position at the top of New York's corporate ladder with his own sweat. His empire is his baby, and he'll destroy anyone who threatens it. Even the sexy employee who challenges him on every level.

When the New York tabloids and the world call him the baby daddy of Sabrina's son, Vlad believes Sabrina is part of a plot to expose the secrets of his past. He threatens to destroy her future. But since Sabrina has secrets of her own, she has no choice but to agree to Vlad's marriage ultimatum.

 Author Bio:

  Author Charlotte O’Shay was born in New York City into big family and then married into another big family, which provides her with enough drama, noise and inspiration for a lifetime of stories.

Negotiating skills honed at the dinner table led her to a career in the law. After four beautiful children joined the crowded family tree, Charlotte gladly traded her legal career to write about happily ever afters in the City of Dreams.

Charlotte loves to challenge her heroines and heroes with a crisis and watch them figure out who they are while they fall in love.

  1. Your cover is beautiful! Congratulations on your series!

  2. I am so with you on modern conveniences. I don't think I could live long ago.As a nurse not having modern medicine would be awful.Love your book cover.

    1. Agree 100% antibiotics rock. Although some herbal remedies seem to have worked for thousands of years.

  3. Thanks for your post! Congrats on your series!

  4. I'm currently working on a story set in 1867. I agree, I couldn't live in the past. At my age, I'd probably be dead.

  5. Loved first book and cannot wait for the second.

  6. I write medieval stories, so I shudder at the thought of living in the time-period. Wonderful post, Charlotte.

    1. Me too. Medieval heroines are rock stars! I could never.

  7. Thank you all for your comments. I have been having the most difficult time replying individually. I have tried to comment on other author posts as well but it has been an exercise in frustration. If this keeps up I will contact the winner through Angela.

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. This looks like a great book. Thanks for sharing with us.
