“It’s not like that. Carter and I are friends. Just friends.”
“I know you were out at his place the other night. I thought—”
“It’s not like that,” she emphasized.
“Yes, it is,” Carter corrected, strolling into the room. “Hey, Doug. Morning, Doc.”
She looked around for an object to throw at him. From the wink Carter threw her way, she guessed he had a good idea of exactly what her intentions were. He wasn’t that charming. She refused to smile.
“No, it’s not,” Henley argued. Doug stood there, his expression miserable. The grin Carter wore implied he found her amusing. She eyeballed the stapler and wondered how much damage it could inflict if propelled.
“You know, Doc, hitting an officer of the law is as much a criminal act here as it is in Cleveland.” Yeah, he had her number.
“Take off that star then.” Turning up her nose, she sat with as much dignity as she could muster.

GENRE: romantic suspense
Psychiatrist Henley Elliott fled her quiet life in Cleveland for a gypsy lifestyle, trying to stay one step ahead of her painful memories. When she breaks down in quirky little Trappers’ Cove, Minnesota, she meets Sheriff Carter McAlister – a man healing from his own share of hidden heartbreaks.
At the request of a friend, Carter offers Henley a job to help her get back on her feet . . . but soon he can’t resist trying to sweep the intriguing woman off them. Breaking through her carefully built shell proves to be a near-impossible task, and to make matters worse, a dangerous new presence in the Cove seems to be targeting Henley. They must learn to trust in each other in order to keep her safe.
Can Henley and Carter leave their secrets and scars in the past to get a second chance at happily ever after?

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
A coffee addict and born city girl, I tend to place my stories in and around southeast Pennsylvania, or at least have a character or two from the area. Home is where the heart is and I make mine with my very own knight in slightly tarnished armor, three beautiful daughters ranging in ages from college through pre-school, two grandsons and a charming son-in-law. When I’m not busy living my own happily ever after, I’m writing about someone else’s.
I’d love to have you visit with me on my blog; at Facebook and Twitter; on my Goodreads and Amazon author pages; or write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5 ***** – Healing Hearts
Becky Flade did a great job with Fated Hearts. She balanced out humor, intelligence and emotions. She fleshed out the characters in a way that makes them jump off the story and grab your attention, never letting go. The well-written plot, with its many twists, hooked me up from page one and kept me going until the very last one. I couldn’t get enough of Henley and Carter’s story.
I don’t write spoilers, so the only thing I’ll say is that Fated Hearts is a story about second chances, the ones you give yourself, and healing.
I recommend this book to readers looking for a new, refreshing voice in this genre.
I received a free copy of this book, but decided to review it of my own free will.
