Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?
by Maria V. Ciletti

Even though the emergency room is the place people end up on one of the worst days of their lives., it certainly can be one of the most interesting places.

Dr. Mina Caselli has been the chief of emergency medicine at City Hospital for 15 years. She thought she had seen and heard just about everything, until she meets up with an attractive young medical student, who hauntingly reminds her of someone in her past who she is trying to forget.

In the sequel to The Choice and Clinical Distance, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? picks up fifteen years into Mina Caselli and Rosemary Rosetti’s relationship. Their busy careers as an ER physician and police detective make their lives exciting, but the stress and long hours of their jobs have taken a big toll on their love life. The fact that Rosetti has entered early menopause kicking and screaming isn’t helping matters, either. Can their relationship survive? Will Mina and Rosetti succumb to the temptations and pressures of their demanding careers or will love keep them together?

Collide
by Maria V. Ciletti

Sometimes you have to shed the identity of who you think you should be to live your true life. Sometimes that identity gets ripped right out from under you.

Renee Cardone and Anna Maria Castrovinci had been best friends since kindergarten at St. Vincent’s School, but when they were fifteen, their friendship turned into something more. Even though their attraction felt genuine and pure, guilt hovered over them. Although Renee loved Annie, she was afraid about the unnatural relationship, according to her Catholic upbringing, that she and Annie had fallen into.

Annie, intent on living a life acceptable to society, began to date Tom Del Fino, which broke Annie’s heart. Renee tried to explain that what they had together was nice, but it wasn’t real. She knew Tom could give her what she needed.

Renee and Tom married and built a respectable life together. They had a good marriage and two beautiful daughters. Then fate slapped them in the face and flipped Renee’s life upside down. That’s when she met Dana Renato.

Dana had it all. A lucrative career as a writer, a home she loved and a partner she adored. Then all of it came crashing down around her. She loses her partner to breast cancer, and the home they shared is threatened by her partner’s estranged family. The only thing she has left is her writing, which takes her away from home and puts her in a small town in Northeast Ohio. There she meets Renee and their lives collide.
