Untangle My Heart

by Maria K. Alexander



Untangle My Heart CoverBLURB:


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.






“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.

    Thank you for hosting me today. I love to hear from fans so please leave a comment, if you’re so inclined. The heroine from my book is an Italian with a fiery attitude to match her red hair. What’s your favorite Italian dish?

      Maria, I hope that many will respond to this! I love lasagna and fettuccine Alfredo. However, I will be happy with spaghetti and turkey Italian Sausage–much lower in calories!

    What a wonderful romantic story! Thanks for sharing the excerpt.
    In answer to your question, I love Italian food. My favorite is Chicken Parmigiana.

    Since I homemake all my pasta dishes, my daughter has been a faithful student. Bianca, using heavy cream, Irish butter and four cheeses, makes a killer (pun intended) Alfredo sauce. It’s a twice a year type of thing coz those calories…. Ijs
