The Pit and the Passion

She held her gaze steady, mainly so she could delve deep, deep into those chocolate eyes. Together with his sharp, angular nose and intense, almost predatory, expression, he reminded her of a peregrine falcon on the hunt.

It's Complicated--New Romance from Joyce Holmes

Please welcome Joyce Holmes, another wonderful writer at Secret Cravings Publishing. Joyce's novel It's Complicated, released yesterday from Sweet Cravings and she'd like to tell you about it.

Thanks for having me, M. S.  I’m excited to share my newest release, It’s Complicated, now available on the Sweet Cravings Publishing website and coming soon to all other sites.  It’s Complicated is a sequel to my first novel, Show No Weakness. However both are stand-alone stories.

Having grown up with no one but herself to count on, Maggie Lapage carefully guards her feelings. Professionally, she goes above and beyond to give others the support she wishes she'd had as a child. When she develops a forbidden attraction to a client, she does what she thinks is necessary, to save his family and to protect her own heart.

Tom O’Shay finds his life caught in a nightmare when he risks losing custody of his daughter. It goes against his character to seek help, but he doesn’t have a choice. That doesn’t mean he has to like it. Everything changes when he falls hard for his daughter’s counselor and he suddenly has two fights on his hands. One for his daughter and another for the woman he loves.

He wants a real relationship, she's afraid to love. It’s complicated, but is it impossible?

Joyce's Life So Far:

Joyce Holmes lives with her husband and very small dog in the beautiful Okanagan region of British Columbia.  An empty-nest mom, she treasures family time, especially with her two precious little grandsons.  Hiking, biking, boating and photography are pursuits she enjoys when she's not dreaming up stories in her head or planning her next great adventure.
