'Untangle My Heart (Tangled Hearts)' by Maria K. Alexander Blurb Blitz!

Untangle My Heart
by Maria K. Alexander



When her marriage ended in tragedy, Kate DiFrancesco rebuilt her life, but has never gotten over the pain of what she lost. Seeking the help of an ex-lover ignites feelings she’s promised never to have again. She’ll need to untangle herself from dangers in her past in order to break the hard shell around her heart.

Edward Weston has a lot to prove, both to his stuffy upper-crust British family, and to himself. Working alongside Kate, a woman he had a casual relationship with, stirs unexpected feelings. Helping her family makes him realize what he's missing. For the first time, he wants more than a one-night stand.

When Kate is threatened, Edward must overcome feeling unworthy to protect the woman he loves and fight for the family he never thought he’d have.

Read an excerpt:
“Privacy is a hard thing to find around here, so you may want to lock the door. Especially when you’re wearing only a towel and my sister is on the prowl.”

“I’ll have to remember that,” Edward said, taking a step toward her. “I knew she was smitten, but didn’t think she would be waiting in the room after my shower. I was struggling with a tactful way of getting her out.”

“I’m sure you’re not accustomed to asking a woman to leave your room.”

He gave her an unapologetic grin. “No, usually not.”

“I guess it’s partly my fault. I told her I don’t have any claims to you. Apparently she took that to mean it was open season to pursue you.”

“Yet you stopped by. Why?”

“I wanted to thank you again for your help today. You dropped everything to come and help my family and that means a lot to me.”

He took another step toward her until he stood directly in front of her. “You mean a lot to me. I’d do anything I could to help you.”

She nodded in acknowledgement, not sure she could trust her voice to speak with him all but touching her.

“And you’re wrong about not having a claim on me.”

His hands found their way to her waist. Her heart thumped and she knew she should pull back, wanted to pull back. But his blue-gray eyes held her in a hypnotic state and she couldn’t move.

  1. Thank you for hosting me today to promote my contemporary romance, Untangle My Heart. I love to hear from fans so please leave a comment, if you're so inclined. What's your favorite Winter activity (besides reading)?

  2. Hi Maria!
    Let's see, other than reading, my favorite winter activity is playing in the snow with the kids. They get such a kick out of it, their joy is contagious. Of course, after the fun, we always come inside for a nice cup of hot chocolate. Yum.
    Love this excerpt. Good luck.

  3. Hi Emma. Playing in the snow is fun. I like skiing and my kids had a great time last year up in VT. We put them in a half day lesson and skied with them in the afternoon. Of course, hot chocolate (with marshmallows) is a must! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I enjoy sewing. I entered under the name of Virginia

  5. Is eating a winter activity? No?

    Great excerpt! Privacy IS hard to come by! Especially when you're a hot guy in nothing but a towel!

  6. Hi Virgina. I like cross-stitching but am a horrible (or maybe I should say lazy) sewer. That said, my mom is great and has helped me make curtains for my daughter's room. and even a Halloween costume. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Hi RoseAnn. Eating is an any-season activity. Glad you like the excerpt! Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Favorite winter activities for me are holiday decorating and cooking! It's hard work but well worth the effort and exhaustion to put a smile on the faces of those I love.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy blog touring

  9. I enjoy cooking dishes and drinks that leave you warm during the winter!

  10. I have to agree with RoseAnn. Eating! All that home cooked food, too! Best, Michele

  11. I like reading a good book, and snuggling up near a fire. Cheers, Michele

  12. I like to bake. Cookies, cakes, breads...anything.
