Coveted Bride/Reaching the Abused Through Fiction
Next month will find fans of our local author, Regina Tittel, swarming the bookstores to purchase Coveted Bride, volume three of The Ozark Durham Series. Regina's writing has been described as, "Refreshing. I appreciate that conflicts are addressed throughout and don't wait the entire story to be resolved." –Sherry Kuhn, online review. This leaves room for more adventure, more suspense, and more romance.
As is common with all her novels, Mrs. Tittel never fails to incorporate a life improving message. In Coveted Bride, her heroine, Lindsey, is scarred from emotional abuse. Through the events in the story and the loving support of Keaton Durham and his family, Lindsey is guided through the steps of recovery. Any reader who has or is experiencing this form of abuse will find help in the pages of Coveted Bride and a listing where more information can be obtained.
Following is an excerpt from the back cover: Do arranged marriages still happen? For Lindsey Buchannan, yes. Everything was kept in her husband's name, giving him full control of all they owned. And upon his death-bed, he exposes his plan for his family's future. Lindsey has two months to marry Keaton Durham or a charity will inherit their trusts and home.
Determined to make it on her own, Lindsey rejects the idea immediately. But when a drug-addicted family member threatens her children for the sake of money, it is Keaton she continually turns to. Would it be so wrong to fall in love with the alluring man that sends shivers along her spine?
Coveted Bride is categorized as an inspirational suspense romance and can be purchased online, or at the following neighboring stores: Hastings in Cape Girardeau, Hallmark in Perryville, Nevaeh Faith in Fredericktown, The Oasis Bookstore in Farmington and L.A. Hair Salon in Marble Hill. Note: A percentage of all sales from L.A. Hair Salon go to support LaDonna Hayes' son and his opportunity to enter a marathon in Australia.
Regina is available for interview.
