ME + YOU
A Candy Hearts Romance
Released January 20th 2016
Wild Rose Press
Teacher Lori Tait has always wanted a family, but now she's 40, she’s pretty much decided all the good men are taken. Instead, she devotes herself to her students, particularly one little girl whose struggle with math seems inconsistent with an otherwise brilliant and artistic mind.
Mark Wilder hadn’t planned to become a father, but when a fling resulted in his daughter, Grace, he whole-heartedly embraced the role. Raised in a family of boys, what does he know about women and girls? Once he learns of Grace’s inability to comprehend basic math, he welcomes the role of tutor as a way to connect with his daughter; the opportunity to spend time with her sexy teacher is an added bonus.
When Lori cracks the mystery of Grace’s problem Mark’s world is thrown into turmoil; he’s the last person who can help his daughter. He pushes everyone away, confirming Lori’s theory about men. Grace, however, has other plans. Using her new-found understanding of math, she sets out to prove to her father and teacher that, together, they add up to the perfect match.
ME + YOU is a fun short romance that left me with a happy heart. I loved Lori. She's a teacher and her love for her students got me right in the feels. Though she lacks a little self confidence she was a great female lead. Mark is a fun male lead. His struggles with being a single dad of a little girl is very endearing. To add to his mess he has a quirky ex-wife that has a very different way on parenting. He's not looking for a relationship but there's just something about Lori he can't turn away from. ME + YOU is a fun story about hope and true love that will leave you with a happy heart. I've not read any of Brenda Gayle's books before but I will be reading more.

I've been a writer all my life but returned to my love of fiction after more than 20 years in the world of corporate communications--although some might argue there is plenty of opportunity for fiction-writing there, too. I have a Master's degree in journalism and an undergraduate degree in psychology. A fan of many genres, I am drawn to contemporary romance and enjoy creating deeply emotional stories with elements of mystery and suspense.
I live in eastern Ontario with my wonderful husband, two fabulous children, a rescued cat, two Siberian Huskies, and assorted aquatic wildlife.
