Ella Martin was devastated by the events surrounding her divorce. Determined to start over, she relocates from New Jersey to Washington to be a photographer with her longtime friend, Renatta. Having been emotionally scarred by her ex-husband’s betrayal, Ella didn’t believe she would ever be able to trust another man again. Then she met Xavier Hart, a successful CEO of an investment firm. She soon discovers that she cannot resist the dangerously handsome Xavier. But her struggles with her intense jealousy and trust issues start to clash with his controlling tendencies. As their relationship develops, she discovers the reason for his controlling nature over her and his desperate need to keep her safe. When her ex-husband suddenly relocates to Washington, her past and present collide in a dangerous way.
Many have asked how did I come up with the title of my book. I have to be honest and say I was completely stumped with a title until weeks after it was finished. I only knew I wanted it to be short and simple. I also had plans for the second book by this time and I wanted the two titles to complement each other. The whole premise behind the first book is Ella’s second chance at romance. That was one title I threw around. Second Chance or Second Chance Romance. But in the end I went with Starting Over, because basically that is what Ella is doing in the first book. She is starting her life over in a new location with a new man. Oddly enough as soon as I settled on Starting Over the title for the second book, New Beginnings, fell right into place, as well as the series name, Hart of Seattle.
About the Author:
I am a romance novel junkie who has many book boyfriends, and it all started with a little book by the name of Twilight. I went from being someone who hardly ever read to someone who is always buried in a book. For years friends told me I should write a book. Well, I’ve finally listened to them. After taking writing classes through my local community college, I put fingers to keyboard and got busy! And that is how my first novel, Starting Over was born.
