Hopes and Dreams
By Darlene Fredette
Law of Attraction was the very first story I wrote, over sixteen years ago. I was an aspiring writer with hopes and dreams of publication. I had the stories in my head and wrote them on paper, unfortunately, I lacked the ‘craft’ of writing. My hopes and dreams plummeted with my first rejection, then another, and another. I lost faith in my writing and placed that story on the shelf where it collected dust over the next several years. Life continued, my career blossomed, and I had a baby. Through those busy years, I continued to write—and this time—I learned the craft of how to write. There’s so much more than putting words on paper. It’s about crafting those words into a story that will captivate readers.
I can’t explain the excitement I felt when I received a contract for another novel I wrote, and then another. I then picked up Law of Attraction off that shelf, dusted it off, and polished it until it sparkled. Receiving that email, offering me a publication contract for Law of Attraction, was well worth the wait. I learned a lot over those sixteen years, and I’m still learning, but that’s the fun of writing.
Never let go of your hopes and dreams because someday they just might find you!

Determined to win back Christina, Steven will take the law into his
own hands...even if he has to play dirty.
Lawyer Christina Crawford has a successful career and stable financial future, but is it enough? Her world is disrupted when a routine divorce case means working with a man she never expected—or wanted—to see again. During their first meeting, she can't deny a connection still exists. Her head warns her to run, but her heart yearns to stay.
Steven Mitchell is ruthless in the court room, but outside those doors, his easy charm, good looks and unlimited stream of female companions gives him an unscrupulous reputation. Six years ago Christina saw beyond his façade, but the emotions she evoked scared him and he pushed her away. Now he wants a second chance and he is determined to get her back...even if he has to play dirty.
Heart pounding in her chest, she closed the door behind him. Wearing her best business face, she returned to this disastrous meeting and sat. Christina drew in a deep breath, and a measure of control was restored. She picked up her pen and flipped open the case file. “So, according to these documents, your client is contesting the divorce?”
Steven reached across the table and snatched the pen from her hand. “What’s the rush, Christina? We haven’t seen each other in years. There’s a lot of catching up to do.”
She clenched her teeth together, barely parting her lips as she spoke. “We have nothing but this case to discuss.”
“Come on, don’t be like that.” He leaned back in his chair, frowning. “You’re not still holding a grudge, are you? What happened was so long ago. I hoped we could start fresh, as friends.”
“Are you freaking serious?” She glared an icy stare. Forget a slow death by high heel. She’d get more pleasure strangling him with her bare hands. “You accused me of misconduct, had me fired, and now you want to be friends?” Her heart thumped a rapid beat in her ears. “You’re out of your mind.”
