“Mountains for Maddi” is still available for purchase on Amazon.
Maddi Madigan is convinced MS and men don’t mix.
At least that’s what her head tells her.
Too bad her heart has other plans.
When Maddi careens into Dr. Gregory Connor on a snowy ski slope while on vacation in the rugged Canadian Rockies, her heart skitters almost as far as her ski poles.
Greg, utterly smitten by Maddi’s dimples and smoky hazel eyes, pursues her over the next few days the same way he works —- hard. When she lingers just beyond his romantic grasp, he rallies with dogged determination.
While trying to woo Maddi is high on Greg’s list of ‘things to do on vacation’, it doesn’t claim top spot. Greg isn’t in the Rockies just for some skiing. He’s also attending a medical conference as the principal investigator for a new drug, Pro-Axon, an effective treatment for multiple sclerosis. He’s dedicated his life to finding a cure to end MS. Tragically, his clinical trial data proving the safety and efficacy of Pro-Axon is stolen through well-timed, large-scale robberies across several labs, leaving him no option but to cancel Phase III of his clinical trial.
Utterly defeated, he contemplates giving up and going home, but Maddi’s exuberance and optimistic outlook on life, despite a sadness radiating from her eyes, compels Greg to dig deep to find answers, not only to who master-minded the robberies, but to what’s truly valuable in his life.
Can Maddi make it through the week without her heart ending up in a puddle of slush at Greg’s feet? How hard should she try? Could Greg truly offer hope for a Happily Ever After? And can Greg find peace amidst the loss of his life’s work?
Mountains for Maddi is a sweet romance that makes its readers root, not only for Maddi in her courageous struggle with MS, but for all people who deal with disability.
Mountains for Maddi will inspire, encourage, and leave the reader with a contented sigh of hope.
Mountains for Maddi is available for sale on Amazon.
