Author Ginger Simpson Guest Post

Please help me welcome author Ginger Simpson to the blog today to talk about her book, Embezzled Love.

Ever so often, something in life prompts a story to blossom, and Embezzled Love, although released as a fictional novel, is based on what truly happened to one of my sisters.  Although the names have been changed, I actually followed her experience to show readers the dangers of on-line dating, yet also demonstrate how deeply attached one can get to someone they've only just met.  I believe some romances, no matter the circumstances that bring couples together, can often be life-changing, and not always in a good way.  Of course, there's a reason we have heroes in our lives, and I think this story demonstrates how important that fellow on a "white horse" can actually be.  I hope you enjoy my offering, which will be featured on the Kindle Direct Program this month, so look for it.  Make sure to pay attention to the cover, as this is a re-release and you want the newest version.  Happy reading, and thanks to Gabrielle for allowing me to be her guest today.

 Embezzled Love

Seems everywhere she looks lonely divorcee, Cassie Fremont, sees advertisements claiming to help find her true love. . .the man of her dreams.  With visions of a fairy tale romance, she follows the link in a SPAM message and joins an online dating service.  Imagine her surprise when 'he' responds to her profile with toe-tingling interest.  Will the Texas heartthrob be the answer to her prayers, or is she about to book a ride on the roller coaster from hell?

"Based on the true story of the author's sister, this novel builds tension as it goes. It grips the reader and throws them into a whirlwind of emotion from anger to joy and everything in between. It is a powerful book of vulnerability and strength, family loyalty versus true love. A must read for every woman." ~ Mirella Patzer, Historical Author

"Based on a true story, “Embezzled Love” by Ginger Simpson shows you the story of Cassie. . .a woman who yearns for someone to love her. She tries an internet dating site and meets a smooth talking cowboy named Evan. Despite her family's objections she allows Evan to move in with her and start a business with her. Follow the love story as Cassie learns that not everyone is as they seem. 
I found this story to be an engaging story and the characters very believable. In this high tech age we need a reminder that not everybody is good and decent and we need to have our guard up in the faceless world of the internet." ~ Carol Langstroth, Mind Fog Reviews

Thanks for hosting me today. I love your blog, and I hope I've enticed a few visitors to stop by. Comments are far and few between these days, it seems. Good thing for stat or we'd never know anyone came. :0

Sounds like a good one. Those Internet boyfriends can be quite fishy. I'm so thankful for my husband. My friends have told me some true-to-life horror stories.
Good luck! Sounds terrific!

The internet can be as dangerous as a dark alley. It's a wonderous thing, but threaded with dangers to be aware of.

Late to comment, but I read this and got so annoyed with Cassie! Like I do with some of my friends sometimes, I just wanted to shake her for being so gullible!

Women always have to beware, it seems, doesn't it? The idea of internet romance sounds so romantic, but in reality...

Thanks for hanging out at the blog today, Ginger!
