But the day she sees Matthew Moi, the intriguing man seated at her new patient’s bedside, her shattered heart begins to frantically beat once again. 

As Matthew pins his mesmerizing gaze upon her, trying to distract her with his humorous and playful banter, she does her best to ignore him. Somehow he already knows a great deal about her, breaking down Jessica’s barriers and awakening her soul, drawing her out of the darkness and into his arms. 

When her painful past resurfaces, revealing truths that threaten her future, Jessica struggles through her issues and fights to stay on a healing path . . . seeking love.

One thing I knew: I wasn’t that woman anymore. I wouldn’t be her anymore.

My heart was racing at the thought of being separated from Matthew by only the door, and I watched as it opened, knowing he stood mere feet away. I drew in a deep breath to calm my frantic nerves and steady my racing heart. It was the moment my eyes would see him again, and the same moment I knew all involuntary muscle movements would cease.

As Matthew stepped in and around the door, his alluring eyes captured me. The feeling was nothing new. I’d been imprisoned by his gaze before. And locked in it again, I watched as he drifted to me, the indisputable chemistry between us palpable and absolute. His mesmerizing eyes had hypnotized my burning soul, completely bewitching me.

“Hello, Jessica,” he murmured, pointing to an open area of the bed. “Mind if I sit?”

I gave a slight shake of my head, having difficulty forming the simple word “no,” and watched as he made himself comfortable facing me. His crisp charcoal-colored trousers bunched as he scooted on the bed. My sight roamed along his classic plum-colored dress shirt and stopped searching once I focused on his face.

About the Author:

JM Maurer lives with her family in Chicago. She makes it a point to never work on a full moon and cringes when a coworker uses the “Q” word—never, ever say, “It’s a quiet day today," at her day job.

Known for being overly superstitious, she can usually be found scraping at the remnants of a Nutella container, screaming at a hockey game, or putting pen to paper, allowing the “real” crazy voices in her head to come alive. And after all this, it’s no wonder she’s an incurable romantic and loves escaping the rat race of life to immerse herself inside the world of a really good romance book . . . because, after all, what’s better than a happily-ever-after?

Find J.M. here:


  1. Hello from Chicago! It's a pleasure being here to share Jessica and Matthew's story. Seeking Love is available and Seeking Redemption, book 2, releases May 2nd—just around the corner. I'll be popping back in for question or comments. Would love to hear from you. Dr. Moi might even check in too. :-)

  2. This sounds like a lovely romantic read. The cover is beautiful as if shot through a soft lens, and I enjoyed the excerpt. Wishing you the best with your releases, J.M.!

  3. Hello, Readers! It's Dr. Moi here. After a wonderful night of . . . sleep, *cough, cough* or something along those lines, *wink* I was able to talk J.M. into gifting ebooks to the first 5 readers of this blog who email her with their info.

    All you need to do is visit her website—Carmen has even been a guest on J.M.'s blog—and sign up for her newsletter. Be sure and tell J.M. what blog you found this giveaway on and leave your preferred email so she can gift it to you. You can always say a quick 'hello' too.

    She loves to chat! Which is something I need to discuss with her, because she has left me—and all of our friends—in a very precarious situation in book 3. And she needs to fix that right away. But in the meantime, go send her an email and enjoy book 1, Seeking Love.

    Until next time, make it a great day. ~Matthew

    1. Hi, Dr. Moi!
      Thanks for visiting my blog! Please, don't be angry with JM. I'm sure she will take good care of you all in the end.

  4. Hello right back, Ms. Stefanescu. A pleasure to make your acquaintance.

    Yes, J.M. and I have come to a complete understanding. She knows exactly what I want, and she gives it to me. Though, sometimes she does it after making me squirm.

    Thankfully, she knows my intentions: to have in my arms my one true love, the beautiful soul who turned my world upside down—Jessica! You are right, though; I shall go easy on her, for now. ;-)

  5. Nice excerpt, it is interesting when characters are redefining themselves.
    Best wishes for the greatest success.
