When you see the gorgeous heroine on the cover of my book, you probably don’t think anything about domestic abuse. Velia, my heroine, never thought she would either.
Let’s just say Justin Waters, the man she was married to in my book, wasn’t a very nice man. He blamed it on his accident some years ago, therefore, he became addicted to a combination of drugs which made him mean and violent. Yes, my sweet heroine endured abuse at his hand. But, she got smart. Velia realized the abuse started so gradually, and before she knew it… Well, I won’t say more.
Like in real life, it usually starts out gradual and before you realize what has happened, you begin to see bruises, your emotions are torn, you’re being controlled, and you feel like you can’t escape your predicament. You can though.
No one should have to endure abuse at the hand of another person. Think it through when you have a quiet moment to yourself, and find your way out. I can’t promise a hunky bull rider like Caulder McCutchen will saunter into your life, but then again, you never know… Take care of you because you deserve better.
