Summer Solstice - Cristiane Serruya - Damaged Love

Cristiane was kind enough to include a short story in the Summer Solstice anthology. Her book looks incredible! Definitely worth checking out if you love a good read!

Love Painted in Red

Tavish MacCraig, thirty-three-year-old Highlander, forsook his medical and military career, after being a POW for 6 months in Afghanistan, to run his family’s internationally renowned art gallery in London, The Blue Dot. Despite being surrounded by wealth and beauty, Tavish’s days are bleak, his nights, living nightmares, and his heart, an empty shell. But when he meets Irish painter Laetitia Galen, a powerful and sizzling attraction ignites between them.

Laetitia, who fled hell on earth when she was sixteen, now works as a well-paid housekeeper in a forsaken country manor in Warwickshire and sells her paintings in an obscure gallery. To preserve her new life and recently found peace, she resists Tavish and The Blue Dot's fantastic offer of an exclusive contract.

Laetitia becomes Tavish’s obsession; Tavish, Laetitia’s unattainable dream.

Meanwhile, a man with a burning grudge plots his long-awaited revenge, which could destroy them all over again.

About Cristiane

I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with my six-foot-six husband, two teenage daughters, and Loki, my Shetland sheepdog. I'm a writer, a lawyer, a reader, a woman, a mother, and a wife. Not necessarily in this order. Or in any order... 
I have a Master's in Business Law and a BA in Fine Arts. In 2012, after twenty-two years of practicing law, I decided to give writing a go. And--amazingly--it was just the piece that was missing in the puzzle of my life.
