Blurb
William knows exactly what he wants. He saw what his parents had and he plans to have that kind of love for himself. He just has to convince Aubrey she’s perfect for him. He attempts to take it slowly, cautious of her weariness and his own preoccupations. Then he bargains, persuades and seduces until Aubrey agrees to be his. That’s where the rest of his life begins…

… even while another part of his life begins to crumble. He finds the foundation of his own family rocked. With William’s future not in his control anymore, he needs Aubrey as much as she needs him. There’s solace in knowing you don’t have to go through life’s heartache alone.

Excerpt
© Touch My Heart, Paloma Beck, 2013
I studied my parents as they got their first glimpse of Aubrey. In the photo, she was looking down, her smooth auburn hair with its burning red highlights hiding most of her face. Her skin was the color of porcelain with a dusting of freckles that softened her and made her appear younger than I already thought she was. I knew they’d wonder about her age. Shit, I was still wondering.
Despite the curtain of her hair, you could still see the shape of her pert pixie-like nose and the dimple on her cheek, which told me she was smiling at what she was reading. The book she held in her hand was a Jane Austen, my mother’s favorite author. I took it as a sign that day and wondered now if my mom noticed. Aubrey was holding the book in her tiny hands that reminded me how fragile she was. I wanted to find her inner strength and show her who she could become. I saw it inside her. I saw her beauty. Everything about her was beautiful to me.
“She didn’t know you took this,” my father commented.
I shook my head. “She was lost in her book. I doubt she’d let me take a photo.”
“She’s beautiful, so delicate-looking,” my mother commented when she handed my phone back to me.
“She is beautiful.” I sighed, focused on suppressing a grin. “She has no idea how beautiful she really is. That’s something I plan to help her see.”

TODAY’s QUESTION
William sees the beauty inside Aubrey that she can’t find in herself. What do you think about his comment about helping her to see it?

What a touching thing for William to say. I think about my own Master, struggling with my anorexic thinking. William's plan is wonderful show of caring- just because someone is interested in BDSM doesn't mean they're uncaring

Tara Finnegan said...

I agree with Natasha, it's a beautiful cover. I really like the use of the first person. I want to read this one.

Roz said...

I agree too, love the cover! I love the snippet. Such a wonderful show of Williams love, especially that he plans to help her see her own beauty.

Hugs,
Roz

My ultimate goal in this book was to dispel all those ideas that William was harsh and uncaring that some readers got in book one. Scenes like this one really open him up. I'm glad you saw that, Joelle. :)

Erin Dameron-Hill did the covers for this series. She's very talented.

I found that first-person comes more naturally to me than third-person. I expect I'll be doing more books in this type of narrative style.

William understands the subtle difference between changing her and allowing her to change herself. He wants her to see what he sees.

Thanks for stopping in to comment. :)
