Kathryne believes she's found the perfect suitor, until an awkward truth crushes the hopes she has to ever find happiness.

About the Author
Lisa Rector is a Maryland native and can’t imagine living anywhere else. A mountain girl at heart, every so often, she drifts down to the coast and relishes the calming beach breezes.
She married her high school sweetheart for time and all eternity in the Washington D.C. Temple. Before becoming a stay-at-home mom for her two beautiful daughters, she enjoyed a short stint as a labor and delivery nurse. This tends to be the reason there’s always a pregnant character in her novels. In addition to her love of writing, her passions are gardening, yoga, and her faith in Jesus Christ. Her favorite delights are decadent homemade cakes, cookies, or brownies—never store-bought.
Lisa has four published romantic fantasy novels in The Emrys Chronicles, an ingenious look at the power of divine light inside immortals and humans, the ability to harness the energy, and the choices a person must make when darkness interferes. With a contemporary paranormal romance called Switching Lives and a paranormal romance called My Vampire, Lisa opened her writing world to explorations of the supernatural. She also has a short story in the romance anthology Love Undefined, where she dares to dabble with Scottish brogue. Her current pursuits include various short stories in multiple genres, along with a contemporary romance. You can find her novels on Amazon as an ebook or paperback.
