“Are you hungry?” he asked as he looked over his shoulder. Jacob saw Bella’s brows go up and her smile transformed her face into a mischievous minx. She threw the covers off of her body to reveal a very naked Bella.

“Funny you should ask. I woke up hungry but you had already gone into the shower.” Bella replied.

Jacob cared for Bella. It wasn’t the stuff of fairy tales that she told him about, Jacob didn’t do Prince charming. To Jacob caring meant he would see to her needs, be there when she needed it and protect her. Jacob never claimed he was romantic but he was committed.  It hadn’t been enough for Simone but it seemed like Bella would take him as he was. and not hope the change so many women thought happened to men after marriage.

Author Bio and Links:
Being a child of divorce, I have experienced both sides of the American Family. I understand there is a loss to the family unit, that no longer has a father in it.  In the face of that loss, I discovered a woman can rise to the occasion and not replace a man but offer her own strength, moral compass and guidance. In this environment a child can grow up feeling loved, accepted and ultimately successful in life.

Those experiences in my formative years have made me more aware of the women around me and the daily feats of resourcefulness and ingenuity that goes unnoticed and unacknowledged by society. My stories highlight societal issues and the ever-changing challenges women face that I've observed during my life.
