New Release -- FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE by Diana Tobin -- Giveaway!

Michaela Sparks left her hometown years ago to prove herself. When a good friend, Nancy, is killed in a terrible car accident that leaves Nancy’s two daughters motherless, Michaela marries their father. Now, circumstances have brought her full-circle, back to the small town of Webster with her two adopted daughters—and the hope for a brand new start for all of them.

Ethan Reigh is the new coach of the Webster Wolves junior hockey team. New in town, he rents a room from Michaela’s mother, Nettie Baxter. Though an injury ended his pro career in the NHL, he never shares the extent of what’s happened—the partial loss of his leg. When he meets Michaela, known as “Mike” to her friends, he’s torn between hope for a wonderful new relationship—and fear of losing her if she knows the truth.

But Mike has had enough of deception to last a lifetime, and she knows there can be no love without truth. Will she measure up and be able to claim the man she so desperately wants a future with? Ethan is prepared to show her how much he cares—he’ll do whatever it takes FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE.

EXCERPT

     The adoptions had been finalized. Their new mother would do what was best, and that was what mattered. He’d kept up the payments on the life insurance policy he’d taken out more than a year ago. It was damn little, but at least it would help keep a roof over their heads, or better yet, give them a new start. The marriage was legal, if not real.
     He gave barely a thought to the woman he’d married thirteen months ago. He didn’t consider her his wife, no matter what the law said. His wife had been his one true love. 
     He’d killed her nearly five years ago.

  4. I see "Mike" is off to a bad start as far as marriage is concerned. It shows her character that she took care of the 2 adopted daughters in spite of how she'd been treated by their father. Well, I'm certainly interested in how Ethan manages to work this out.
    I love Maine. It's a beautiful state--until winter rolls in at least.
    For The Love Of Mike sounds like a deeply emotional and lovely story, Diana. All the best and HUGE sales!

  9. Diana, Sorry to be late, but had to stop by and say how intriguing your excerpt sounds. Grabbed me for sure. Sounds very suspenseful with more than some twists in there--lots going on and that's what I love. Your Mike sounds like one compasionate, yet tough woman. I'm sure this will be a winner. I adore going Maine every couple of years in the fall so this will be a special read for me. Wishing you much success with this one and all the next to come. Nice to meet you.

  10. Hello Beverly! I hope you enjoy this book. I started in Maine, but only lived there my first year or so. However, lots of relatives still there and I plan to go back next summer, a combination family reunion and research.
