Get Serious
by Mimi Barbour

George is so shy that his stomach ties itself in knots when a stranger approaches. And when Laura, a pretty girl being followed by a stalker, begs him to let her sit at his table in a restaurant, he almost refuses her pleas. But then he sees the menacing male face in the window and agrees to having her company.

Next follows the strangest night of his life. Not only does he lose his virginity, but he becomes entangled in a suspenseful situation that upsets his quiet and comfortable existence.

George's mother can't bear to be alone and has kept her son tied to her because of her crippling fears. When he doesn't come home, she seeks comfort from a neighbor who works periodically for the NYPD. And who she slept with the night before.

Enjoy this heartwarming and slightly spicy story about how four lonely people can suddenly discover a new lease on life.

Mimi Barbour's Bio

NYT & USA Today, best-selling, award-winning author, Mimi Barbour, lives onthe beautiful east coast of Vancouver Island and writes her romances with tongue-in-cheek and a mad glint in her eye. Asked why she prefers paranormal or suspenseful romance, she answers, chuckling...   "Because it's fun! Imagination can be a lot more interesting than what happens in real life to so-called normal people. I love my characters, and my goal is to make the readers love them also. To care about what happens to them while the tale unfolds. If I can steal my booklover's attention away from their everyday grind, absorb them in a fantasy world, and make them care about the ending, then I've done my job."   "Thinking back, writing my first romantic suspense novel switched the hard work into fun, and I've not looked back. I love writing about men and women finding each other and falling in love. Along the way, it pleases me to fill their travels with gritty conflicts -- spiced up with lots of humor and seasoned with a few tears, but always with endings that are happy."
