M. A. Clarke Scott

Disruption by Design

What is the price of sacrifice, when love is the prize? Can a few chaotic weeks playing house convince lonely and defensive Bruce and fiercely independent Alexa to let down their guard and make room for love?

Description

What is the price of sacrifice,
when love is the prize?

Alexa is a gifted architect. She grew up watching her mother pay a heavy price for love, at the loss of her freedom, her creativity and her identity– a price Alexa swore she would never pay. She spent her youth helping her working mom take care of their home, her sick father and her six younger siblings. Now nothing will stand in the way of her success.

Bruce has success in spades. He lives a life of leisure after selling his software company for millions. But money can’t buy the thing he desires most, and was deprived of as a child when his mother left him and his three older brothers in the care of his bullying dad- the love and nurturing of a woman, a comfortable home and a family of his own.

When a crisis obliges them to play house together, can a few weeks in each other’s company disrupt their carefully constructed worlds?

M A Clarke Scott’s early loves included two things: books and art. In her world view, blank white pages, canvasses and even blank white walls, were begging for her creations.

Neither of these passions have waned, despite all the other adventures she’s had in the meantime. She wrote her first romance novel at the age of nine, but soon abandoned both writing and drawing for a career in architecture, then an academic career in environmental gerontology. Tiring of both, and still none the richer, she has returned to her first loves, writing and art.

M A lives with a small menagerie of large men and small mammals on the beautiful West Coast of British Columbia, and though she knows she lives in paradise, still loves traveling the world in search of romance and adventure.
