The answer is – OUR LIVES ENTWINED (Entwined Series Book 2)
Next Question – You have an ‘Entwined Series’? WTF?
Answer – I do! 😀
Around eighteen months ago, I wrote a book called Our Hearts Entwined (It was called Alter back then, but for some reason people kept thinking it was paranormal, so I renamed it). It was one of those books that I just loved writing and received amazing feedback for and was the third book I released. It released rather quietly, because I didn’t really know what I was doing back then, but a lot of you have found it along the way, and I know that you’re eagerly waiting for its sequel. (It’s nearly here! YAY!)
I also know, that there are a ton of you who have no idea that I wrote this book, so I thought I’d spotlight it for the rest of July BECAUSE on August 16th – the sequel, OUR LIVES ENTWINED is releasing.
Now, the great news is, I have dropped the price right down on book one, because I really want you all to read it. It’s romantic suspense, set in Melbourne (where I live) and it’s filled with twists and turns and drama and romance, and all of those good things that you love about all of my books.
Here’s the blurb for those of you new to this series –
During a routine meeting at a special needs school in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, Mia is set to discuss the welfare of one of her students. It’s here that she’s introduced to Dr Cayd Donnelly, a man so devastatingly attractive that she almost forgot to say no when he asked her out – despite her loyalty to her long term boyfriend, Eric.
Shortly after, the usually predictable Mia becomes anything but. The change in her behaviour delights Eric, but concerns her best friend Louise when she stops signing while they talk.
After a month of worry and frustration, Mia finally seeks help. Help that comes in the form of an incredibly hard to resist doctor – Cayd.
From there, she discovers just how entwined her life and her heart is with those of others while she navigates a path of passion, treachery, and loss. Things will never be the same for Mia again…
Ready to meet the characters? – Here they are…
MIAMia was having a great hair day when we took this photo – she’s a 23 year old teacher for deaf teens at a special needs school in Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs. She has a close group of friends that she’s had since high school and her life revolves around her friends and work. She has no family left as she was an only child when her parents passed away when she was 19. Everything about Mia’s life is very ‘normal’. That is, until she meets Cayd. She feels an instant attraction to him, something that is so strong that she almost accepted when he asked her out before correcting herself and telling him no, she has a boyfriend. She feels incredibly guilty about her feelings toward Cayd and decides that she wants to spend more time with her boyfriend, Eric, as she feels that perhaps her attraction stemmed from feeling a little disconnected with him. Problems arise when Mia starts forgetting her interactions with Eric, and stops speaking sign language around her best friend, Louise. Everyone becomes increasingly concerned about her and eventually she goes to seek medical help. From there, she is referred to a psychiatrist, which is when she discovers something about herself that is so life altering, things will never be the same for Mia again…
This is Eric – he always seems to be getting out of the shower when I take his photo. I can’t imagine how this keeps happening, but oh well – lucky me!Eric is Mia’s boyfriend. They’ve been together since high school and have a really easy going relationship. They spend their weekends together and spend the week focusing on their respective jobs at their respective houses. He’s a fairly typical Aussie guy. He’s a plumber by trade, and likes to hang out with his football mates. He’s happy to go with the flow and enjoy life. So when Mia starts to become more affectionate and wants to spend more time with him, he is more than happy to oblige. Especially since she is turning up the heat in the bedroom! He is however worried when Mia can’t remember their interactions and urges her to go and talk to someone.
This is Cayd, somehow I managed to get him shirtless too. I don’t know how I keep managing to do that!Anyway, he comes into the picture as a hot ball of electricity that turns Mia’s head. He’s willing to wait for Mia, but he isn’t willing to sit back and watch while her life falls apart. He’s also willing to put himself out there to help her find out why she’s blacking out and then helps her take steps to fix it. He’s 35 and a psychiatrist who has spent the majority of his life studying and entertaining the ladies with his lovely abs.
This is Louise, Mia’s best friend. She was too busy looking off into the distance to smile for my photo – which is a shame, because she’s such a great gal! She’s the reason Mia wanted to teach deaf teens. Louise lost her hearing when she was a teen herself and Mia, being her best friend, learned AUSLAN with her so they could easily converse.Louise doesn’t believe that anything is wrong with Mia. She can’t imagine that her best friend could all of a sudden be behaving so differently. She’s fairly stuck on paranormal reasons as to why Mia is behaving so strangely, but she has to concede the truth when confronted with it.
And last but not least we have Josh. He’s kind of lacking in the muscle department, so I took a shot of him while he was getting ready to take Louise out to dinner. Shhh!! Don’t tell him I said that! (Crap, I think he heard me!) Sorry Josh – I really do love you!!Seriously though, Josh is a lovely man. He’s dating Louise, AND he’s Eric’s best mate and house buddy. He’s the guy who’s always willing to help out a friend, and he really adores Louise. He’s even willing to go along with her wild ideas while Mia is acting strangely. Ultimately, Josh is the guy that makes things happen. He’s the guy that knows what’s right and pushes for his friends to see reason.
And there we have it – all of the main characters in OUR HEARTS ENTWINED.
