Single to Engaged in 6 Weeks

Guest Blogger-Shoshanna Evers

Hi all! I’m Charly, Rebecca’s assistant. We thought it’d be fun to do a ‘Romance: The Good, the Bad, and the Disastrous’ theme with guest bloggers throughout the summer months. Every Monday and Thursday, we’ll have a guest blogger talk about fun stuff like horrible dates, good dates, etc. Some bloggers will have a contest, and some won’t – it’s totally up to them. If there is a contest, I’ll randomly draw a winner from the post comments, send the winner’s email address to the guest blogger, and they’ll take it from there. Rebecca will jump in and blog when she can. For now, enjoy as we play!


At heart, I’m an old-fashioned girl… after living with my best girlfriend for six years running, and a year of serial-dating men I met on an online dating website, I was done. Ready to settle down— but not ready to settle for anything less than a man who would be the perfect husband for me.

DH had just moved to Los Angeles, and I was the first date he had from the dating website. He was my…(ahem) 100th? But DH immediately stuck out from the crowd. He brought me flowers on our first date at Coffee Bean (I never met up at a bar or at night—too dangerous. Coffee for twenty minutes in the afternoon, in public, was my first-date modus operandi).

He paid for my coffee and held the door for me. Bonus points for that, because chivalry.

He asked me questions and actually listened to the answers! Who does that anymore? Not the men I had been dating. Double bonus points.

He had some dog hair on his shirt. I LOVE DOGS. Triple bonus points.

That first date went beyond the twenty minutes of coffee-time I had originally allotted him. We hung out all night talking. From that moment on, we were a couple. He texted and called me every day, without me having to wonder if he was into me or not. No games (crazy, right?!).

After six weeks, on the same day he first told me he loved me, he proposed marriage. I said yes! It was fast— really fast. But it just felt like a perfect fit. Eleven years, one child, and numerous dogs later (we have 3-4 at all times), I am still so grateful to God for dropping this incredible man in my lap.

If you’re looking for a relationship but haven’t found The One yet, keep the faith! They’re out there, looking for you, too.

The lust in Shayne’s eyes made her believe him. Tonight, she was beautiful.

“You lay back now,” he ordered. “It’s celebration time. I ain’t stoppin’ till I hear you scream my name so loud the neighbors can hear.”

“Ain’t no neighbors,” she said breathlessly, slipping easily into his casual way of speaking. Her fingers gripped the cool sheets beneath her hands, grasping as if the world had tilted on its axis.

“That’s what I’m talkin’ about.”

    I just loved your story Shoshanna. It was endearing.
    I met my husband by an introduction at a convention. He was kind of nerdy and I only dated bad boys, i mean the baddest I could find to shock my dad. But that very day, i told all of my friends at the convention that I just met my husband, and we became a couple the next day. My family said they prayed I would keep this one since he didn’t seem to have a felony…or a tattoo, LOL. That was 15 years ago. We have 3 kids and I am thankful that I no longer hadto accept collect calls from jail 😀

    1. That is such a great story! Love at first sight is so amazing.

  7. Joan Lai says:

    Thanks for sharing your lovely story. I’m glad you found your “one and only”.

  8. David & Julie Bailey says:

    Shoshanna, no wonder you love that man! I am sure you have made him a hero of at least one or your books. He sounds too good to be true! I know life is not always the highs, but it is during the downs that one’s love truly shines.

    Shortly after we were married, Julie had an abdominal abcess and peritonitis had set in. One more day and Julie would not be with us. She did not have an appendix, the whole area was eaten up. They removed several inches of both intestines (where they join). Back then they had semi-private rooms, but do not anymore, thank God. I slept on the tile floor for three nights, then she got a privare room, and the roll out bed was worse than the floor! But I stayed every night until she was released– total of eight days. Julie said that after that she never doubted my love for her. Even her mother who did not want her to marry anyone, decided that I did love her and out relationship changed after that. She had been losing blood for so long I never saw her with any color in her face. When they rolled her down the hall she was fussing very loudly that they had given her 2 or 3 units of blood (which wes necessary), but she had great color in her face in sddition to her being angry, and she never looked better than she did at that time! What could have been a tragedy, bonded us closer than ever! That was almost 25 years ago!

    I know you will always hold on to that man! It seems that many of our romance writers have husbands or wives that are that special to them. I’m sure it contributes to your skills as a romantic writer!

    1. You and Julie have a great story! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Barbara Kesterson says:

    And that’s the way love should be. I think that sometime we tend to over complicate things so I say if it feels right and you click then just go for it.

  10. Jade Onyx says:

    Wonderful story — thanks for sharing!

  11. Mary C. says:

  12. Sheryl Wilson says:

    Loved your story! I met my husband on internet. We’ve been married 16 years and still going. I have the book you’re giving away and just wanted to say I loved it!

    1. Thank you, Sheryl! Internet dating totally works – my sister and three of my close cousins met their husbands on dating sites!

  13. Evita P. says:

    Such a great story, thanks for sharing! As for me, I am keeping the faith because I have not met my hero yet, but I’m looking 🙂

  14. desiree says:

    That is fast but when you know you just know!!

  15. Debra Elise says:

    Shoshanna, what an incredible story of love and perseverance (yours) 🙂 I already have the Tycoon’s Convenient Bride….and Baby. Just wanted to stop by and say Hi!
