Good sex is what changes unhappiness and sadness into playful and fabulous.

So when she discovered her husband, a very powerful man, made some bad decisions she decided to take matters into her own hands and when she did she was shocked at what she discovered. She knew it was time to use her intelligence and wit to change the game plan back in her direction and that is exactly what she did.

I recently downloaded this book free from Amazon. I got a bargain, let me tell you, for this book was amazing! It follows the life of a woman who is so loved by her husband and yet she is blind to it. You want to hate her in the beginning, for she has everything anyone could ever want and seems to throw it away so callously, but we learn that there is something inherently wrong with Elaine.

Elaine is troubled by mistakes in her past that torture her to this day. She punishes herself every day for ...more

This story grabbed me instantly. The writing was so natural that I fell into the story from the first pages. The story line captured my attention and the chapters drew me in at the same time it touched me on a very emotional level. The raw heart wrenching emotions shared really grabbed my attention and made me really think about the circumstances that Elaine, the main character faced. She would have been a character that was easy to dislike but I couldn't help feeling for her and at the same time moved over the decision she made that would change her life.

I was not only intrigued but curious where this would. The writing is ever so smooth, clear and precise. It was easy to fall into the ebb and flow of Love Changes.

"According to you it was harmless, but let me tell you, and I speak from experience. Josh Derman has been in one too many beds, including mine. He's quite a charmer, and that's all I'll say for now. Please be careful."

Chicago author Marsha Casper Cook is also a screenwriter and radio show personality on Blog Talk Radio discussing writing, publishing and advocating October Breast Cancer Awareness. She is the founder of Michigan Avenue Media and a partner of the World of Ink Network where she does her podcast, A Good Story Is A Good Story. She also tackles many subjects that are currently in the news. The World Of Ink/ Michigan Avenue Media has produced hundreds of shows over the last eight years and will continue to help writers reach their goals as she did when Marsha founded the literary agency Marcus Bryan & Associates in 1996. She achieved signatory status from the Writers Guild of America (WGA) within two years. In that capacity, she has represented more than 100 screenwriters and authors, and has also optioned books to movie production companies. Her own novels include romance, adventure, inspirational books, fiction, non-fiction and children’s stories.

Refreshingly, Marsha has decided to create a series of short stories based on her favored character Virginia Templeton – a lady who wants it all – money, power, men and sex. Marsha knows how to build credible characters and prepare her reader with a grounded platform that seems so real that the story she is about to launch gives us the comfort to laugh at our own similarities and foibles. We first meet Virginia – ‘Virginia Templeton arrived at her psychiatrist’s office, ten minutes late as usual. She was always late, as she rather enjoyed a grand entrance. Virginia was beautiful and knew it, tall and graceful, with hips tapering into long, slender legs. A body to die for, as they say. All heads turned when Virginia entered a room; women wanted to be her, and men just wanted her. She was just as sexy dressed as she was undressed, as she absolutely loved fashion. Her favorite expression was “shop until you drop,” and she did just that. Virginia loved expensive clothes and shoes? Oh, how she loved shoes, and accessorized every outfit. She didn’t look at price tags and, luckily, she didn’t need to. Virginia’s image didn’t allow her to be all smiles or say nice things, as she preferred to play the misunderstood diva and use her good looks for favors. People didn’t cross the line with Virginia often and, when they did, her wrath was like nobody else’s.’

Marsha sings her short story in this casual manner – ‘Business and pleasure don’t always mix but it’s a hell of way to live. Life in the fast lane isn’t for everyone but for this couple it’s their way of life. Everyone in Chicago knows them and internationally they are the glamour couple. He’s a hotel magnet- the center of it all but what happens in a short amount of time will surprise everyone.’ Lots of naughty steamy erotica served generously likely indicates this talented lady has another successful venture on her hands.
