There’s something about your first love. No matter how many times you find love later in life, it will always be missing some element of wonder, of nostalgia, of newness. And even if it didn’t end with a happily ever after, you just can’t help but long for that love every once in awhile.
And that’s okay.
My Choisie series tells an epic story of first love. While it’s about a teenage girl, this series is accessible by all readers. Remember that first kiss? Or the first time someone said they loved you? Remember facing tough decisions about your relationship that seemed like they would alter your path for life? And maybe the outcome did alter your life. Or maybe it didn’t. Remember the passionate fights that may have ended the relationship altogether? Or that may have brought you two closer together? Remember the good times? Remember the bad ones?
Sometimes, all your left with is the memories, and as you get older, many of the memories will fade. That’s where good fiction can help you! If you want to remember that love, that longing, that sweet romance that will forever capture a tiny piece of your heart, please read my Choisie series. You’ll remember the fights with your parents over your boyfriend. You’ll remember the first time he held your hand. You’ll remember the first time he kissed your lips, and the first time he kissed you elsewhere. You’ll remember that first argument – and even to this day, you’ll probably laugh at how silly it was. You’ll remember the uncertainty you felt in some situations, and the overwhelming assuredness you felt in others. You’ll remember a sense of discovery. You’ll still feel a certain sense of loss, too.
And that’s okay. In fact, it’s wonderful.
Curious? Here’s a summary of the first book in the series, Contessa.
When she was four, a generous couple welcomed orphan Olivia Sophia into their lives. As she grew up, her parents made good decisions for her, raising “Livvy” to be an intelligent and creative young girl. Now sixteen, three people influence many of her choices: her first love, her second father, and a third man who speaks to her through his artwork.
Livvy’s father is practical and steadfast; even-tempered and quietly observant. She’s an artist who acts on her emotions and thrives on attention. Unhappy with their differences– and misunderstanding her father’s methods– Livvy chooses to focus on the similarities she shares with an enigmatic painter from her mother’s past. Her overactive imagination leads her down an obsessive path– one that only stands to hurt everyone around her.
The distraction of a new boyfriend has the potential to end her search and reunite her family, but his involvement in her life could be just as devastating, taking Livvy away from her father for good.
