What’s a girl to do when she’s attacked in her café and the only thing she has as a weapon is a cake carrier? If you’re Vicky DiFrancesco from Forever in My Heart, you’ll use it to bash your assailant in the head and then smash the cake in his face. Sure, it was a sad waste of the remainder of a fabulously good Italian Cream Cake, but it sent the bad guy scurrying away.
And how about when faced with a junkie holding a knife? If you’re Ashley O’Neil from Awaken My Heart, you’ll wait for an opportunity and then swing a bag of baby formula cans between his legs and then kick the knife out of his hand. Not the most elegant self-defense move, but it got the job done.
Vicky and Ashley are two of the heroines from my award-winning Tangled Hearts series and as you can tell, they know how to take care of themselves. In this series, you’ll find a little bit of comedy, a dash of suspense, along with family traditions in contemporary romances where love, family and friendship unite.
For a limited time, both Forever in My Heart and Awaken My Heart are on sale for $2.99.
Vicky DiFrancesco is ready to put the past behind her. After a humiliating divorce, she’s determined to make her new café a success. The last thing she needs is her first love around, reminding her of what they’d lost. But when her life is threatened, could he be the very man she needs?
Jamie DiSilva’s homecoming after retiring from the army isn’t the one he’d been hoping for. Now, he’s trying to start a home improvement business in a town settled on holding him accountable for the sins of his late brothers. Redeeming himself to the girl he never stopped loving and her family is difficult when his brothers’ secrets come back to haunt him.
Untangling themselves from the past means righting several wrongs and deciding if their love is meant to last forever.
