by BWW News Desk - Jan 3, 2017

It is okay to feel and to hurt and to not be okay. And it is okay to let people know you are not okay. Humans are complex. There is nothing simple about us, so why are our hurts and fears treated simply?

Fiola Faelan Promotes Contemporary Romance Novel, 'Holiday Hearts Awakening'
by BWW News Desk - Dec 12, 2016

The last thing Natalie needs in her life is a handsome-as-sin single father living right next door. What she wants to do is shun the world and embrace her broken heart. She regrets snapping at his little girl over something as silly as Christmas lights, but nothing in the world will change her mind about taking part in holiday hoopla or letting a cherub, or her sexy father, into her life. Zach's decision to ignore his snarky, smoking-hot new neighbor is an easy one, even if he feels a tug of regret he won't get to know her better. He wants nothing to do with a woman who would snap at his little girl over something as trivial as decorating for the holiday. Neither are prepared for hearts tripping and emotional barriers falling when Zach snatches her from the flames engulfing her home and ends up tucking her into his spare bedroom. Little does he know his ability to play nothing more than caretaker until she's back on her feet is nothing more than smoke and Mirrors. Will holiday hearts awaken to passion and new love, or will Zach and Natalie let this chance at new love pass them by? Book Details: Holiday Hearts Awakening By Fiola Faelan Publisher: Quicksilver Garou ISBN: 978-0986327308 ASIN: B00QPCN4B4 Page: 101 Genre: Contemporary Romance About the Author: Fiola has always loved to read and cut her teeth on page-turners such as The Forest of Mystery, Robin Hood and Nancy Drew. She grew up a devout tomboy, playing with cowgirl action figures, and getting into mischief back when Silicon Valley wasn't even a gleam in San Jose's eyes. She loves to live life to its fullest, from riding hell-bent-for-leather on her Appaloosa in gymkhanas to surf-fishing in Hawaii, jumping boulders on the breakwater in Morro Bay to walking barefoot on the beach and dreaming of romance. Many of her story ideas were found during her travels far and wide, from Corpus Christi TX, where her ancestors are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery to Pendleton OR. From Tucson AZ to Seattle WA to Vancouver BC. She's always on the lookout for that next story, that next place to bury the body. Or lock-lips with a hot guy. She lives in beautiful but weird Portland, Oregon with her amazingly talented son and daughter-in-law and their most affectionate cat Nudge.
