Book Spotlight – Heart of Fire

Tyler Davies was eighteen when he met the fiery beast he would later battle on a regular basis. Seduced by the beauty of her flaming touch, he had looked right into the heart of the fire and known she had claimed him.

It was the second time he’d seen his future. The first was the day he met Lilly-May Saunders, a girl who burned so bright he was blind to anyone else. If it hadn’t been for her friendship with his brother, a relationship he didn’t truly understand, he would have confessed his feelings. But when his friend dies in the line of duty, and Tyler discovers the truth behind the accident, everything changes. Those he loves are in danger, and the one who owns his heart is at the top of the list.

Romancing the Stone Reader

Heart of Fire BookBy Nat Hobson

My favorite stories all have one thing in common – connection. Whether that be in simple camaraderie, friendship, family, or strangers coming together for the common good. I’m a romantic at heart. Perhaps it stems from the dreamer in me, or more simply – it makes me feel good. There is one thing that truly unites us as individuals and that’s love and compassion. We understand sacrifice and hardship, but we also know what it is to hope.

This is what draws me to romance, and what connects me to so many other people across the world. Sure, we all have our preferences in terms of how the story is told – some like fireworks and rainbows, others a more down to earth approach. We read, in part, as a way to escape; a time when we can forget about the stresses of everyday life. It doesn’t matter what the genre; science fiction, crime, fantasy, contemporary, mystery – there is always something to connect us and we can lose ourselves in the adventure of it.

As a reader I’m drawn to stories which take me on a journey of discovery, allowing me to experience new worlds and exciting possibilities. The writer in me wants to share that joy with others by creating authentic characters who readers enjoy spending time with. I enjoy the magic of love, so a good romance novel allows me to experience it time and time again, in a hundred different ways. It’s the ultimate feel-good vibe; the light, the hope, the warm and fuzzy feeling that can be like a drug – love stories can definitely be addictive!

Romance itself comes in many guises, and I enjoy them all. It doesn’t have to be candlelight dinners and kissing in the rain, it can be in a simple gesture, or a shared memory.

I hope the series communicates this belief to my readers. The magic of love, of friendship, and of family. You will find it all if you take a journey with the Winchester Brothers!

Sometimes the hardest thing about lowering our defenses is the fear of how far we might fall.

That fear had been Adrienne Baxter’s driving force most of her life. It was far easier to hide behind her radio personality, feeding from her audience, than to risk exposure.

She had James, her brother by choice if not by blood. It was enough – most of the time.

As the co-host of the early morning breakfast show at Music 101, Adrienne is the confident, sassy presenter with the silver tongue and fast-talking wit.

When she meets Sebastian Davies, the station owner’s son, her carefully applied facade begins to slip. He presents a new kind of danger, because this time she could lose her heart.
