Personally, I love romance novels that pair two women who couldn’t be more different from each other if they tried. It’s not just that opposites attract; it’s also that they somehow complete each other and can learn from each other and bring out the best in each other.
My latest lesbian romance novel, Heart Trouble, certainly falls into that category. On the surface, the two main characters are very different from each other:
Hope Finlay is a doctor in a busy ER in Los Angeles. She grew up in foster care and learned not to bond too closely to people. She’s focused on her job, which she enjoys mainly because it requires only short interactions with patients, not building long-term relationships with them.
Laleh Samadi is the polar opposite. She’s very close with her boisterous family and even works in her aunt’s Persian restaurant. She always assumed that she would one day fall in love; she just never imagined that it would be with a woman.
When Hope saves Laleh’s life in the ER, their lives collide in a very unexpected way.
Heart Trouble is a medical romance with a twist that you could call paranormal–not in a shape-shifter or vampire way, just in a “love is a miracle that can’t always be explained” way. Guess you’ll have to read it to fully understand what I mean. If you do, I hope you enjoy it!
