From the Author
I love New York City. The people are damn serious about the way they live life. They work hard and play hard and needless to say, it got me thinking. Were the people of New York City just as hard core back in 1830 as they are now? You better believe they were. And those poor bastards didn't have our modern conveniences, either. Back in 1830, people were trying to pave dirt streets with gold, even though they had nothing but sweat. So what happens when an American-Irish woman named Georgia with only coal clutched in each hand meets a British aristocrat who only ever had gold? You get a story known as the Prince and the Pauperette. But why stop there? After all, there is so much more to a story than poor vs. rich. I wanted to get down and dirty and twisted, digging into the real facets of life back in 1830, while giving you a good laugh and a good cry. As a writer, I get to play god (bwahahaha) and the idea of a person starting over against their will has always fascinated me. So I took away the hero's memory and made him crawl back to the basics in life. Basics he forgot to appreciate. Basics he never thought he'd be able to return to. And he does it all while touching the life of one very special woman who makes him realize true love is not only real but priceless. I hope you enjoy my historical version of the Prince and the Pauper.

The life she led in Five Points, one of the slums of New York in 1830 America, was not easy for our heroine. But then, nothing ever came easy for this young and beautiful, but poor widow.
She was picked out of a coal bin as a teenager by her beloved Raymond who already was a father of two boys. After his death, she gets a hold of a dream of owning her own property out west, in Ohio and she's determined to save every penny, nickel and dime to do what her Raymond taught her she had a right to want: the universe.
A dream she never dreamt, and is no dream at all but a reality was the one in which she meets an attractive and wealthy man who she thinks can only see her as a "one night commodity".
This man approaches her and she finds him attractive, but the voice inside is telling her, he's not for her and he never could or would be. However, our hero would not be deterred, and slowly he gets her to smile and they both start flirting with each other and out of the blue a kid steps in and nabs Georgia's reticule. As both give chaise after the thief, our hero is waylaid and knocked unconscious by an omnibus.
Georgia is filled with guilt as she later finds out that the man is now suffering from memory loss and the only name he remembers and wants to be called is-Robinson Crusoe.
As she and the doctor that's treating him are trying to find who he is, she has no choice but to take him home to her tenement apartment.
She's aware that even with his memory loss, this man will be like a fish out of water in her world at Five Points,
I loved the scene in the hospital, in which she `prepares' his clothes and `repairs' his appearance for `her neighborhood'.
`Robinson' felt very protective of this young woman who selflessly gave him protection and security, when he felt most vulnerable and lost. His attraction to her was instantaneous, but he tried very hard to act a gentleman and he might have made it, if our heroine hadn't been one force of nature! One more thing I loved from the first scene to the last was the dialogue between the two! It made me laugh out loud and cry!
Ms. Marvelle gave me a romance that was scorching hot, yet tender. The attraction and the chemistry between the two sizzled and the love scenes were very sensual and steamy. She also took me on a journey from the slums of America to the high society of London and I enjoyed every minute of it!
I am thrilled to give this book my five quills and I'll never forget this story that takes two people who can't be more different in every way, yet their love and passion for each other was limitless and able to bridge every obstacle thrown their way.
Are you ready for a heart wrenching, nail-biting, funny and unbelievably passionate love story? If you are, grab yourself a copy and enjoy `Forever and a Day'.
I reviewed this novel for Romantic crush Junkies eZine website.
I was highly intrigued by the brief introduction of Atwood at the end of the book; he undoubtedly has a fascinating story, so I'm very much looking forward to that book.
I think many of us would love you for it.
