Opposites attract in my new lesbian romance “Heart Trouble”

Heart Trouble_JaePersonally, 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!

Heart Trouble is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, the Ylva webstore, and many other bookstores, both as an e-book and a paperback.

    I just finished it a literally a second ago, and I think that it’s your best novel yet, and it’s on the top of my favorites list. I loved these two characters and their story touched me deeply. Your writing never disappoints but this one was exceptionally good, so I thank you!

    I finished reading Heart Trouble last night. Loved it! I loved that you put Shaken to the Core as a movie in there. Lol Darn shame there isn’t a movie version of it :)

    Thanks for the great story of Hope and Laleh! They are adorable together :)

    Keep up the good work!!

      Thanks for commenting, Rachel.

      Have you read “Just Physical”? This is the novel in which they are shooting “Shaken to the Core,” with Jill playing Dr. Lucy Hamilton Sharpe.

      And it’s also the script that Lauren is writing in “Damage Control.”

      I love to connect my novels like this.
