How's That For Fearless by Angela Hayes

Please join me in welcoming my guest, Angela Hayes!
Something rash, life changing. These four little words haunted me as I tried to figure out how I was going to write this post.
            I didn’t think the words rash and life changing could be used to describe myself. I’m a leo and as I continue to age, I find myself pretty set in my ways. I like routine, the comfort of knowing each day what I’m going to do and the order I’m going to do it in. I have a high tendency to use the same phrases over and over and do my best to fly below the radar. Boring, right!
            But the more I thought about this, I came to realize that there was a time when I did something rash and life changing. I eloped! Surpise!!!
            Six months after I met a boy, while working at a fast food chain, we high tailed it to the courthouse and forty dollars later, voila, a married couple.
            Guess it’s working out though. Two kids and one battle with cancer later, we’re looking forward to celebrating our fourteenth wedding anniversary this September. Pretty rash and life changing if I say so myself. How’s that for fearless!


Love Howard has more than a knack for matchmaking. Born from a forbidden passion and a twelve-hundred-year-old promise, she and her sisters can literally see true love. And while Love has no problem bringing other couples together, her own romantic life could use a little help.

Danton DeAngelo has always been well grounded in reality. So it throws him for no small loop when the woman he’s fallen for believes that she’s been reincarnated eleven times and can actually see true love.

Now Danton is faced with the biggest decision of his life. Accept Love for who she really is, or walk away from her forever.


            “That was close,” I breathed when we were outside, an entire building between myself and the best man.
            “It’s about to get even closer.” Faith smiled, making me instantly wary. I knew what was coming. She’d seen it. They both had.
            “What do you mean?” I asked, playing dumb.
            “Look at him again, and you tell us,” Hope challenged.
            Dutifully I opened the door. Keeping to the shadows, I stepped inside, just enough to get another look at Danton DeAngelo. There he was laughing with his friends, what a beautiful sight. Male perfection bathed in the same powder blue light that all souls gave off when they were destined to be together. Blowing out a breath, I closed the door and faced my sisters.
            “He’s blue.”
            “He’s not the only one, honey.” Hope smiled, holding out a compact mirror she had pulled from her purse.
            Snatching it from her, I peered into the reflecting glass. There was my image, the one I’d spent twenty five years looking at, the one I saw mirrored in the face of my sisters. Except, unlike yesterday, I could now see a telltale blue glow around my face. Faint at first but growing stronger with every second. Closing the compact I could see the glow encompassing my hands. I looked down and around. Like a bad rash, it was all over me.
            “I’m blue!” I declared, pointing out the obvious.
            “True blue, true love. YOU are the future Mrs.Danton DeAngelo.” Hope gloated taking her compact back.
            “Ah damn!” I whined.
