  • Is she rescued or does she save herself?

    My favorite novels involve self-reliant heroes and heroines who are thrown together with an added element of suspense. There is nothing like a bit of danger to really get to know someone. When the characters work together, they confirm that the whole- the couple- is stronger than the sum of its parts- each individual. Let me introduce you to my heroine, Emma Rutledge, and hero Donovan Evans, in Sanctuary on Victoria Island. Emma has a happy satisfying life, yet something is missing. She loves her job, family, and friends. But she longs for the one who got away, or actually, never was. She never got over her childhood crush on her brother’s best friend, Donovan Evans.

    Donovan has just left the military and has come home to start his next career. He also wants to explore a possible relationship with Emma. In his view, the timing had never been right for them before. Until now. When Emma is threatened, they have to overcome their past and work together to keep her safe. Is Emma relying on Donovan to save her? Or does she lean on his strengths while contributing to her own safety? Read their story and let me know what you think.
