#1, The Retrieval Duet

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


I proposed on our first date.

She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes.

It was a whirlwind, but we were happy…

Until we got greedy and wanted a family.

It was a life I couldn't give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn't on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn't have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn't understand.

Finally, we were successful…

Until we were forced to bury our son.

We were left broken, battered, and destroyed.

They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us.

This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine.

The retrieval of my wife and our family.

Full of Emotions

My heart broke for Elisabeth and Roman at parts, and I luxuriated inside their love with them during other scenes. For them life instantly fell into place as soon as they met. After terrible rounds of miscarriages, infertility, IVF and the death of a child, their systems were just unable to reboot back to that happiness. Retrieval is the story of Elisabeth and Roman past and present.
This series contains two couples whose relationships couldn’t possibly be more different. It isn’t a super lengthy book, but a whole lot is packed inside: parental love, romantic love, hate, romantic wooing, heartbreak, fear, desire, selfishness, sacrifice, abuse, adoration, suspense, action and more. Clare actually wrecked me the most. I can’t wait to start the continuation of this duet. I’m completely invested.

Great read!

This book had me hooked page 1 of the prologue! Can't wait for the second installment!

Loved it!

I love this book. I love how it kept me focused and trying to get to the next character while holding out hope. Would love to see what happened to Walt.
