Many of the relationships in these eleven stories begin as serious tales of rejected advances, broken engagements, sexless marriages and cheating husbands, but just when a happy ending seems impossible, a little laughter brings about a positive outcome! A shallow woman fixated on meeting a handsome but oblivious stranger is charmed instead by a persistent funny guy with a winning personality. The klutzy secretary with a snobby fiancé meets an admirer who finds her clumsiness more endearing than embarrassing. A married couple attempting to rekindle their sex life is faced with the challenge of finding a time and a place for intimacy while raising their two curious little boys, only to realize how much closer they’ve become since their carefree days as newlyweds. Finding a little humor in your relationship can make all the difference! Read More
While the ’70s were about equal rights and the sexual revolution, women in the ’80s were more concerned about their economic situation. It’s easy to understand why some of the women in these stories would fantasize about finding romance on a cruise ship, or running off to a big city and becoming a fashion model, but as this collection of stories reveals, there are no shortcuts to happiness.
These were not the days of speed dating and finding love online. Women looked for love with personal ads and a very rudimentary form of computer dating. Read More

Love. War. Pain. Passion. Relationships lost. Romance rekindled.

There’s love, and then there’s mother love — maybe the most powerful love of all. Meet the mothers at the center of each of the 14 love stories included in this TruLOVE Collection. Whether their stories were written in 1938 or within the last few years, and whether they’re about a single mom, a stepmother, or an overbearing mom who can’t let go, each one explores the struggle and challenge of love and motherhood. Several stories focus on women who became single mothers unexpectedly, either through abandonment or widowhood. Another story finds a stepmother trying to deal with her husband’s very unhappy child from a previous marriage. In most of these stories, our inspiring moms overcome their unhappy circumstances to find a sense of great self-respect. They also find new loves with good men who can be good fathers to their children. Even those mothers who try to keep a stranglehold on their children out of fear of eventually being left utterly alone, have their own journey to romance, and it is not an easy one. All of the heroines in these stories learn valuable lessons about coping with adversity and are rewarded by finding true love. We hope you find these stories exciting, heartwarming and, most of all, romantic!
Snakes, Rats, and Little Boys–Oh, My!
“My childhood was awful and so I really have no idea how a good mother is supposed to act. Still, I try as hard as I can to be a good mother to Theo by spending time with him, taking him to museums, helping him with his homework, and even doing things I don’t particularly want to do. I was certain that the mere thought of a snake in my house would probably give me nightmares.”

I Saw Mommy Kissing the Delivery Boy

Slave Mom: My Family Wouldn’t Lend a Hand
“Ralph was right. The house was a pigsty. Every dish we owned was dirty, and our clothes were all piled in the laundry room. The bathrooms needed scrubbing. The trash should have been taken out, and every room needed to be cleaned and straightened. The problem was that I just couldn’t keep up with it.”
