OMG! Check this out! Her Dollmaker's Desire is out for Release!!!



Author Gina Wynn (Who is also incidentally my BFF) is proud to announce the release of her new book Her Dollmaker's Desire is available for immediate delivery to your Kindle Today!

I can tell you this has been a long journey for Gina. She is the kind of author who puts her heart and soul into her writing and produces a product that exceeds excellence. and lucky for us readers, too. This is a story whose characters will enchant you and allow you to come along on their magical journey to true love.  As a retelling of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, this story follows the slightly broken Amy as she starts a new adventure in her life. Coming to grips with a past that almost destroyed her, Amy meets Peder and Tobias the Dollmaker. From that first moment, she is drawn into the wonderful world of dolls, and the sheer magic of true love. Following her rules has never been more difficult until she realizes that she can make rules to fit her life rather than follow rules that restrict her from living.

This is a story that will hold you in its depths from the first world to the last and when it finishes, you will wish for more. (Shhh. Don't tell, there's more coming SOON!)

Don't miss your chance to own this masterpiece! Buy it on Amazon! (And don't forget to leave a review. Authors love that!)



Rule number 123: Once upon a time is for fairy tales, not for broken ex dancers who live at home with Daddy and a textbook evil stepmother, and who only manage to get through life by counting every single step. 

Amy knows her rules inside out…who to spend time with, what to eat, what to drink and what to do - until danger shows up in a leather jacket on a shiny chrome motorbike. Suddenly, breaking the rules seems to be all she can manage no matter how hard she tries, and her rigid control starts to slip.

Peder’s violent past has shaped him into the man he is, much the way he has learned to shape dolls with the help of his grandfather. He used to have only one rule in his life, courtesy of his absent brother and their shared gang past. When Amy is sent to write an article on his grandfather and his history of doll making for a paper her father’s company owns, she captures Peder’s interest and his heart. After his brother makes an ill-timed return and issues an instruction that threatens his future with Amy, Peder becomes trapped in a fresh web of lies and family ties. He must decide if he should start breaking the rules he didn’t know he lived by to take a chance on a future with Amy while knowing he could still lose her if she finds out.

Is Amy brave enough to put her faith in Peder, and can he overcome his past and convince Amy to follow their destiny, rather than her rules?



Excerpt:

 Lost in her thoughts of the past, Amy reached to grasp the ballet dancer’s tiny form.

“I’ve brought the cake, if you want to come and sit with us for your cup of tea?” A new male voice, deep and confident, startled her.

She jumped and straightened, coming nose to nose with the unhinged grin and vacant leer of a circus clown.

A gasp tore from her lips. “Oh, my God.” She backed into something warm and solid, and shrieked before spinning round.

“Sorry. Sorry…it’s just me.” The man’s eyes, rich with the colours of wild woodland moss, held an unexpected glint of danger. She shivered as an electric jolt shot straight through her when she met that green gaze. It glimmered with mischief and laughter, and he didn’t look quite as sorry as he should have.

Reflex led to her almost leaning into his strong grip as he reached out to steady her. Almost. She tugged her arm away and held out her hand.

“Pleased to meet you.” Superficial manners and years of rules kicked in, and she averted her gaze from the man who hadn’t introduced himself, and especially from his dangerous eyes. Her heart continued to race over her close encounter with the clown…yet the warmth in her arm lingered where the man had wrapped his strong fingers around her.

“Quite,” came his polite reply, and the obvious disinterest in his tone echoed through her, but what had she expected? Rule Number 15: Know your place, always.

She sneaked a quick look at him, and his very attractive lips upturned in an amused smile. One she almost returned, while wishing he’d speak more words once she could hear him over the rushing of blood in her ears.
