A few weeks back, I wrote about how fellow novelist Michelle Griep landed a contract for a regency novel with a Bronte flair.
Well, contrary to normal publishing speed, A Heart Deceived released this week!
Did the cover catch your interest? Then the plot will probably grab you even more:
Miri Brayden teeters on a razor's edge between placating and enraging her brother, whom she depends upon for support. Yet if his anger is unleashed, so is his madness. Miri must keep his descent into lunacy a secret, or he'll be committed to an asylum—and she'll be sent to the poorhouse.
Ethan Goodwin has been on the run all of his life—from family, from the law ... from God. After a heart-changing encounter with the gritty Reverand John Newton, Ethan would like nothing more than to become a man of integrity—an impossible feat for an opium addict charged with murder.
When Ethan shows up on Miri's doorstep, her balancing act falls to pieces. Both Ethan and Miri are caught in a web of lies and deceit—fallacies that land Ethan in prison and Miri in the asylum with her brother. Only the truth will set them free.
Anyway, to help Michelle celebrate, join the fun over at her blog, http://writerofftheleash.blogspot.com/, where she's doing a contest and a giveaway. Or jump over to her website, www.michellegriep.com, or her Facebook page, https://www. facebook. com/michellegriep.
