Tons of thanks and lots of love to Alpine, my wonderful beta and dear friend!
Some things you should know about my stories:
Only my drabble stories have a regular posting schedule. Otherwise my updates may be sporadic, since I post the chapters the very same pace I write them, and sometimes a chapter might take a while to complete.
I like to develop the romance slowly, because I think love does not happen at first sight but builds up over time. Although I write romance, I have a penchant for realism. Thus, my stories are not all fluffy happiness and fun, but also contain drama and angst. I don't do smut. The sex scenes in my stories - if there are any - are not described in full explicit detail.
English is not my first language and while I am fluent in it, the English I use is a mix: my vocabulary is primarily American, but my spelling is British.
If you have an issue with any of the things stated above, my stories might not suit your taste. I still hope you'll enjoy them, but proceed at your own risk.
