Inspirational Romance

Jen assumes she can escape her past after she testifies against Robert, her human trafficking mogul husband, and enters into witness protection under a new identity. That is until a baby shows up on the stoop of the library where she works, and another man from her past, Tom, appears in her living room. Now she must relocate again under yet another name and memorize a new set of legitimate lies to explain who she is.

When Robert discovers her latest identity, he has other plans for her, such as enslaving her in a Tudor manor in Southern England. The scandalous family secrets she discovers may hold the key to her and the daughter of the manor’s freedom. But first she must tunnel through a myriad of lies, including the dark sin which has held her own heart captive. If the truth is revealed, will it hinder her one chance for happiness?

Re: Legitimate Lies

I love to "escape" to new locales, and even different time periods, through books. I depend on the written word to "paint" the pictures for me. I get transported via a great book. Your story sounds wonderful. Thanks today's blog and for the chance to win.

When I read books that are written in the "scenic route," I
feel as if I am a fly on the wall. I usually put myself in
the place of the main character anyway, and this style of
writing puts me right in the center of the action, and makes
the book itself really come alive!! The leaves are really
twitching in the trees, and any other descriptions they
might want to add, give more depth to the story line, and
not only do you see them in your minds' eye, but you can
see, feel, and taste them!! I have your book on my TBR
list, and am looking forward to reading it. Congratulations
on what I'm sure is going to be a big hit!!

it's ok as long as it gets to the designation.

I live on the "scenic route" and I love to read it, too.

I love the scenic route which opens up the beautiful novel and
the vistas which I can explore and capture.

The 'scenic route' is as good as the writer. When I can see, hear, feel, & (sometimes) smell what is being described to me, then I know I have found a great writer. When it is described in such detail that I feel I am there & I know the characters in the story, I lose all sense of time & am unable to put the book down. That is the perfect 'scenic route'! That is when the author has made a great impression on me.

I love a book that I am in. I can see all and feel all, I'm in it, and I can't put the book down till the end .
Joan Thrasher 8:33pm May 1, 2015)

I do enjoy the scenic route. I like to picture the story as
I read.
Mary Preston 4:42am May 2, 2015)

I do love the scenic routes that make me feel I am there and
can feel what the characters are doing or a lcoation. I also
love maps when reading histoical books and once in a while, I
have seen a drawing on a page that helps identify the object
such as an artifact.

The scenic route makes it so much nicer, you feel as though you are there.
Mary Smith 1:12pm May 2, 2015)

I feel as I am there! Lovely!
Pam Mooney 4:08pm May 2, 2015)

I love it! Scenic routes I have never done yet, like
route 66, but I am getting ready to do it!

Great Book, would love to read, great contest, Good luck
to all who enters! I hope win this book so I can read
it!!!! :)

The scenic route is the nicest way. Would love to win this book.

Taking underground public transportation, there's no such thing as a scenic route, but I'd like to imagine there is.
Lisa L. 11:12am May 4, 2015)

This sounds like such a good book!
