Sharing Awareness

Hi everyone!
Just had to share. I announced on my Facebook page that Niagara Falls will light blue at night for 15 minutes in honour of World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd, 2015, organized by Autism Speaks Canada.

The Falls are so breathtaking, especially at night. For those who've never visited, every evening the Falls are usually lit in the beautiful colours of the rainbow.

April is Autism Awareness Month.  Over 2 million Americans are affected and tens of millions worldwide according to the U.S. CDC. And 1 in 68 children are diagnosed. 

Many are affected. Let's share acceptance and understanding, autism is not a choice. Don't forget to wear blue this month to show some love and support.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend filled with love and peace!

Desperate to see his sons settle down, especially after he’s been given six months to a year to live, elderly hotel magnate and family patriarch Jonah E. Belmont, III gives his sons a bucket list challenge.

Read book 2 in Billionaires of Belmont Series… Brandon & Faith’s story
   

Tall, dark and handsome security systems mogul, Brandon Knight (a Belmont by blood), considers himself too emotionally damaged to be in a long-term, relationship. His ex-girlfriend betrayed him in a bad way and slept with his rival. Now he finds out that he’s really the son of hotel magnate Jonah Belmont III, and to top it off… Jonah is urging all his sons to settle down soon before he passes on to receive the Belmont family blessing. Brandon has no plans to settle down ever and fulfilling that dying wish, until…a lovely professional organizer by the name of Faith Johnson stumbles into his life and causes him to rethink his decision.

She might be a professional organizer and founder of Faith’s Clutter Control, but Faith Johnson’s love life is a complete mess. Thanks to her ex-fiancé, who left her broken-hearted and broke, she doesn’t trust men—nor does she trust herself around them. Currently, Faith is focused on getting her life together and keeping her heart clear of men. She really needs a big account to push her business further, and she lands the Belmont and the Ellimore accounts on the same day—two prestigious clients. But then… she bumps into too-sexy-for-his-own-good Brandon Knight, the gorgeous security systems mogul. Will their worlds collide? Can Faith trust her heart around Brandon?

THE BILLIONAIRE’S MARRIAGE PROPOSAL (The Romero Brothers, Book 8)

Sexy, tall, dark and handsome Dr. Alonso Romero was scarred in childhood from losing those close to him, including his first girlfriend, to whom he’d proposed marriage. When she died, he took that as a sign he should never marry. Losing a loved one hurt too much. His remedy? Never get close to another woman—and never wed. To his tycoon grandfather, Toni Romero, Alonso is the only disappointment in the family who has not tied the knot and settled down like his other once-professed bachelor brothers. But that’s just fine with Alonso, until…

Beautiful and feisty street nurse, Britney Andropolous, walks into Alonso’s office late one night and straight into his heart. She’s on the run from a dangerous past. He wants to help her but the trouble is, he’s falling for her. Will he keep his distance and his declaration to never get close? Or will Britney’s dainty curves and warm heart melt Alonso’s defenses?
