For those of you who have read my Captivate novel, first off THANK YOU. Ashlyn, Slade and Tamsin are near and dear to my heart but their story is one that was never really given a chance. You see…I wrote this book to speak to the people out there who don’t feel like they are good enough. That they need to change who they are to fit in. That the world devalues because they may not look, act or speak the part. It is about real people finding their way in life and using their …natural talents to reach their dreams.
Because of this I have rebranded Captivate and I am relaunching this novel as A LOVE RESTORED on June 28th. This sweet romance is a tale that many people can relate to.
A woman who spends her life on the sidelines.
A man desperate to discover his true worth.
A woman who seeks love in all the wrong places.
Ashlyn Doyle has spent her life trying to blend in. A sweet wallflower by nature, she is unaccustomed to the spot light, but as the personal assistant to a bestselling romance author with a drive to enjoy life to its fullest, she throws herself into her work. With a hectic touring schedule to maintain, a party animal boss to keep in line and the task of discovering the perfect eye candy to grace the cover of Ender’s Betrayal, Ashlyn is in for more than she bargained for.
Determined to make his mark on the world, Slade Collins leaps at the opportunity to audition as cover model for Tamsin Archer’s newest novel. Tales of Tamsin’s wild parties, affinity for hot men and the wild success that has sky rocketed every former model to fame leads Slade to use his sly smile and British accent to quickly attract the attention of both Tamsin and her shy assistant. But the faster Slade moves toward the dream he so desperately desires, the more he begins to realize fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Tamsin Archer loves to party, drink to excess and enjoy every drop of success her name has afforded her. With Ashlyn’s firm grip on the reigns of their five city tour, Tamsin soon settles in to the task of bedding her newest cover model, Slade Collins but soon discovers that all the drunken hookups and empty wine bottles in the world can’t fill the void that she feels.
Sometimes you have to learn to love yourself before you can love someone else.
