Scars of My Past(99)

By: D. C. Renee

The ceremony continued, and Cassidy and Daniel were pronounced husband and wife to a chorus of cheers as Cam and I clapped the loudest. Who would have predicted that Cassidy had been right that day in high school? She’d found her soul mate in a misunderstood bully like I had. All it had taken was a little love and never giving up when things got rough.

“Like mother, like daughter,” Cam said as he wrapped me in his arms.

“Good,” I responded with finality as a smile played on my lips.

“Jonah, stop,” Alexa—Amanda’s daughter who was two years younger than our Jonah—cried somewhere nearby.

“Like father, like son,” I said with a laugh.

“Good,” Cam responded with his own laugh.

“Full circle, huh?” I asked.

“Full circle,” he said with a nod. “Fate,” he added, echoing my words from before.

“You, Cam, you’re my fate.”

“Thank God for that,” he said as he claimed my lips with all the love he had—exactly as he did every time. He’d started as my ruin, but he’d ended as my salvation. And when I kissed him back, I told him that—exactly as I did every time.

I know I’m lucky when it comes to my family. They support me in anything and everything that I do. They are my biggest cheerleaders, they shower me with praise and encouragement, and they surround me with love. Thank you to my hubby, my baby girl, my sister (without whom most of my books wouldn’t exist as she’s my muse), my parents, my in-laws, and my nieces and nephew.

I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to get to know some of the best people through the book world, many of whom I get to call friends. Their help, feedback, and reassurance are truly valuable. Thank you to Rebecca Bennett, Janett Gomez, Jen Wildner, Monica Perez, Heather Cicio, Suleika Santana, Cat Gray, Tiffany West, Sheri Hursh, Shelly Wygant, Carrie Sutton, Ivette Pacheco, Samantha Bone, Stephanie Caldwell. There are so many more, so I’m sorry if I’ve missed some folks!

Some of these lovely ladies are part of my reader group, whom I swear is the best! Everyone in it is amazing, so thank you to DC’s Diamonds!!!

A book would only be words on a page without the help of some very talented ladies, all of whom I like to also call friends. Thanks to Jenny Sims, my editor at Editing4Indies, Rebecca Pau, my cover creator at The Full Wrap, Elaine York, my formatter at Allusion Graphics, and my promo gals at Saints N Sinners.

A big thanks to all the blogs, bloggers, groups, and fellow authors for all your help with each and every book. And of course, a big thanks to the readers. Without you, I’d just be a lady with crazy ideas making room in my head.
