To overcome her sensitive nature, successful entertainment journalist Ren Hayden locks away her emotions along with the scattered pieces of her tragic childhood. The only person she trusts, but probably shouldn’t, is a criminal—her brother, Seth.
When Seth dies unexpectedly, he sets off a chain reaction causing Ren’s coping mechanisms to falter. Unable to make sense of messages she receives from beyond the grave, she can’t stop herself from finding comfort in the arms of Galen Zabriese—the brother of the woman Seth ruthlessly conned.
Ren discovers life’s missing pieces in Galen and steamy experiences in his bed but struggles to feel worthy of his love. While battling his own missing pieces, Galen becomes hell-bent on drawing Ren’s real nature to the surface. Can selfless, true love help them complete each other or will Seth’s past catch up with them first?
Jigsaw Hearts is a stand-alone novel full of emotional depth and steamy romance. Ren and Galen continue the beginning of their life together in two follow-up novellas, Pieces of You, Pieces of Me and Whole Piece of My Heart. Look forward to more novels and novellas involving the unconventional, flawed, but fabulous Zabriese family throughout the Awaken My Heart series.
If someone came forward to reveal to Danica Raimz that, a few years ago, she inadvertently slipped through a tear in the fabric of the universe and into a parallel universe, it would not surprise her the least little bit. In fact, she would welcome any explanation for her new life, new locale, and new way of seeing the world. Living in the South is far different than her New York / New Jersey life, and while everything has its perks, she misses the energy of Manhattan and the whispering beauty of the Catskills. Now, if someone had told her she would be writing steamy romance … well, that would have flat-out shocked her. Still, if unwillingly uprooting your life and waiting for the dust to settle has any perks, the drive to rebel and regain control of life on your own terms is one of them. Danica now loves to write the sort of romance where sex is the sweet, enticing, satisfying icing on the cake of selfless relationships that are meant to be. A solid story, unique characters, true love, emotional rollercoasters, and steamy encounters are the hallmark of her work.
