Annabeth is a hopeless romantic who believes in soul mates. In fact, she’s been writing to hers each year on her birthday since she was 16.

Now, at 34, she’s still holding out hope of finding Mr. Right even though he’d be fighting an uphill battle to gain her trust, thanks to a traumatic experience years before that’s left her unable to commit.

When Annabeth meets a handsome literature professor named Alex on her 34th birthday, she thinks her quest may finally be at an end. Things don’t quite go as planned, so Annabeth resolves to do everything she can over the next year to find the unknown recipient of her letters. But blind dates, Meetup events and online singles sites have nothing on what fate has in store for her when a co-worker unexpectedly quits and Annabeth finds herself working in close quarters with both Alex and her long-ago ex, Nick. Fighting her attraction to one and loathing for the other, Annabeth is forced to face all of her old insecurities while keeping an eye on a scheming frienemy who may derail her hopes and dreams.

Written in the tradition of Bridget Jones’ Diary, Kim Gruenfelder’s A Total Waste of Makeup, and Melissa Pimental’s Love By The BookBeen Searching for You shows that love on the sweet side can exist for the modern girl, if only she’s willing to trust herself and search hard enough.

Been Searching for You was the winner of the 2015 Romance Writers of America Great Expectations and Golden Rose contests.

Synopsis

When celebrity photographer Macy Ferris is released from rehab after suffering a mental collapse and dealing with alcohol addiction, she is forced to pull her life back together and hopefully salvage what’s left of her once very successful career.

Her first assignment back on the job entails her accompanying a reporter to fallen country music star Ryland Quinn’s private ranch to find out why he’s dropped out of the public eye and left his music career behind.  Despite the fact that being sent out to a secluded Montana ranch was a far cry from the A-list celebrity events she was accustomed to in New York, Macy puts everything she has into this assignment, determined to get her life back on track again.

But dealing with bitter and cantankerous Ryland Quinn proves to be more than Macy had bargained for.  

Wanting to make a good impression, and land their big story, Macy plays nice with Ryland in hopes of breaking through his rough exterior. The more Macy gets to know Ryland the more she realizes that they might have more in common than she first thought. Macy recognizes a darkness within Ryland that she knows all too well and has been fighting her whole life to escape.

About The Author

Stella is an Arizona native but now lives in the foothills of the beautiful Rocky Mountains with her husband and young son. Self-proclaimed nerd and confessed coffee addict, Stella can often be found late at night watching Star Trek reruns while she writes (looks at Facebook) or does homework (looks at more Facebook).

Her hobbies include wondering where the time went and looking for her son’s other shoe. Still pursuing her education while she works her day job and does the writing thing, Stella is hoping to test the capacity of the human brain by stuffing it with as much stuff as possible and then seeing what happens.
