New Release: A Taste of Honey PG Forte

Posted by: PG Forte
Well, I have a surprise release to announce. A Taste of Honey hit the stores earlier than expected. This is the annotated version and, after re-reading it over the last couple of weeks, I have to say this it still remains one of my favorite books.
When Chapter One opens, Lucy has this to say about her life:
"while everyone around her seemed suddenly immersed in fresh new lives and new loves, she’d had to content herself with more of the same old, same old. Not that there was any part of her life that she wanted to change, she reminded herself sternly. She took a moment to rap her knuckles against the side of one of the wooden half barrels that served as planters on the terrace of the tea shop where she and her two best friends were having breakfast. The same old everything she had was pretty damn great.
She had two wonderful kids, satisfying work, a comfortable house, and she’d been happily married to the love of her life for the past sixteen and a half years."

It was so much fun writing about a couple who'd been together for nearly two decades. A couple who knew each other, loved each other, and accepted each other--flaws and all. And then turn it around, give them a really big problem to wrestle with (a couple of problems, actually) and then force them to struggle and grow and find their way back to each other.

They were and are so real to me. I swear they used to visit me in my dreams when I was working on the book before theirs and question me about when I'd get to their story. I remember being so concerned that I wouldn't be able to do them justice, but in the end, I think I acquitted myself pretty well.

A Taste of Honey
Oberon 4.0

For Lucy Greco Cavanaugh, life is a dream come true.  She has it all. The perfect family. The perfect husband. The perfect marriage. What more could she wish for?  Other than the chance to do it all again. To experience once more the agony and ecstasy of falling in love with the man of her dreams. To recapture the joy and uncertainty that comes with starting over.

As far as Dan Cavanaugh is concerned, his life has become a nightmare. His storybook marriage is on the line when Deirdre Shelton-Cooper, the runaway daughter of a former girlfriend arrives in Oberon intent on proving Dan is her father. Even though he's convinced the girl's claims are false, Dan decides his only chance to keep from losing everything lies in keeping her very existence a secret from his wife and family.


But, sometimes, what you don't know can hurt you--and those you love. When Deirdre, masquerading as a surfer girl named Monica, accidentally hooks up with their son, Seth, Lucy and Dan are left to wonder: has their perfect, fairy-tale romance, turned into a classic Greek tragedy?


Sometimes you get exactly what you wish for.  And it's more than you'd ever dreamed.

Such Fleeting Pleasures

An Oberon Prequel Novella  


Love wasn't always strawberries and cream for Lucy and Dan Cavanaugh...or was it? In this Oberon prequel, we travel back in time to see how it all began. 

Most of the material in this prequel novella (set some eighteen years before the series begins) also appears as flashback scenes in A Taste of Honey.
