Excerpt

Gazing up at him, she realized she'd give almost anything to stay in his arms like this. She didn't intend to move, at least not for another moment or two. Instead she stared into his handsome face. Dark hair covered his upper lip and she wondered what kissing a man with a mustache would feel like.

Somehow, her thoughts must have communicated themselves to Luke for his head dipped. There was a gleam in his eyes, eyes that were nearly black. She should draw back, tell him no, twist her head away. But she couldn't do anything of those things; she didn't want to do any of them.

The hair of his mustache brushed against her upper lip. It felt as if her mouth had been touched with the bristles of an artist's fine brush. Then, he grazed her lips twice more. Finally, his lips settled on hers and she forgot the mustache completely.

A streak of fire speared from her lips, down through her breasts to the pit of her stomach, searing as it moved through each fiber of her body. The tip of his tongue traced the seam of her lips then retreated as if begging for entry.

Denying him was not possible. Her lips parted and she let him explore her mouth. However, his taste set off an explosion of responses. Soft purring noises, sounds like a contented kitten, surrounded them and she knew they came from her.

Pleasure swirled through her. Somewhere outside of herself, his hands stroked her back, her shoulders, her nape. Finally, she pulled away, resting her head on his chest. Trying to still the thunderous feelings still roaring through her, she took several deep breaths. Never had she imagined a kiss could bring such delight. When she looked up at him, he appeared to be as stunned, as shaken as her.

She stood in his arms. I want time to stay here with Luke.

The Romance Studio
Luke Adams is a Colorado rancher. While he is out looking for strays he
comes across an over turned wagon. He looks around and finds a badly
injured woman. His only clue to her identity is an engraved necklace with
the name Gina. It is obvious from her injuries that she had been beaten
but Gina says she has no memories of her life. Gina suffers from terrible
nightmares and her fear continues to grow until finally she remembers
where the danger lies.
She fears that if she tells Luke she has her memory back he will return
her to her vicious stepfather, the man that killed her mother in order to
be able to marry her. She hopes to be able to earn enough money to make it
to safety.
When Luke compromises Gina he knows it his duty to marry her. Still Gina
does not confess that her memory has returned. When her stepfather catches
up with her she tries to tell Luke the truth but he only hears that she
lied to him about her memory. Having been hurt by females before he does
not believe the danger she says they are both in until it is almost too
late.
Heal My Hurting Heart is an emotionally stirring romance that is based
around the concept of trust. Passionate and exciting this fast paced
historical will have readers anxiously waiting the time when all truths
are revealed. Emotionally stirring this story tells of two compelling
characters that have been hurt in their past coming together to find love.

Luke is a hard working handsome rancher. He does not trust women and does
not want one in his life. But he cannot deny the attraction he feels for
Gina. He struggles with his lack of trust making mistakes and hurting
those around him. He will have to grow and learn that all women are not
like the ones that have hurt him. He angers the readers and has them
feeling sorry for him at the same time. It is easy to see why he feels the
way he does but it does not make it right how he treats Gina.
Gina is a young woman that is scared for her life. She is a character
everyone wants to protect. In a time when men control everything and women
have little rights it is hard to trust those around her. She fears that
they will believe that she belongs with the stepfather. She is only happy
when she is in Luke’s arms. Readers will attach themselves to this
character and hope for the best but know things will be bad before the
story is through.
Few surprises are in store for the reader in this romance. It is a
familiar tale but with a few new twists. The readers will be intrigued
with why the stepfather is so determined to get a hold of Gina. Readers
are encouraged to check out Heal My Hurting Heart by Allison Knight.
