I don't know about you, but I like reading romance. I enjoy reading about heroes who treat their women well and sweep them off their feet.
But real-life doesn't always offer the same. Sometimes, we don't have a hero or our hero becomes a villain. That's happened to me recently. And it hurts. Like soul-sucking, numbing, aching, all over hurt!
Other times, a woman finds a true hero - a man who'll be there, fully there, with all his heart, forever. A man who takes her breath away and fills her heart with love. The problem is, sometimes it takes a whole lot to persuade the woman he's real and she needs him.
That's the same with Joanie, the heroine in my book, Her Real-life Hero. It takes magic to keep Theo in her home even when she boots him out several times, but it takes something more magical inside her and between them to convince her that he really is a hero for real life and not just someone in a book.
Romance Writer in Training…
Joanie wants to get her romances published but can't seem to get things right with her writing. She buys an antique bureau which the shopkeeper says has magic working through it. While using her new bureau, she begins to talk to the hero in her book, asking his advice on writing, all the while thinking it's her own imagination. She promises he can live in her home, eat at her table and sleep in her bed, if he helps her with her writing. She doesn't think he will actually knock on her door and insist she keep her promise.
He’s made a wish…
Theo has also bought a magic chest of drawers that brings him into Joanie's life. He wants to settle down with one woman, tired of shallow relationships, and Joanie seems like the perfect candidate if it weren’t for her insistence on getting rid of him.
Against her will…
The magic keeps on forcing them to live together and Joanie’s not happy. This is her first year alone and she’s been craving time to herself after looking after her younger siblings and an ailing aunt. Theo’s presence in her home, although unwanted, stirs up needs she’s suppressed for years. When they start to discover things about the magic and why it’s bringing them together, will Joanie recognize another type of magic at work? Will she succumb to the charm of Theo or will her need for breathing space pull them apart?
