Welcome, June Moonbridge! I’m delighted to have June join me to share a little about her wonderful book All That the Heart Desires.
At twenty-five, Desire Hart has experienced enough grief for a lifetime.
Changing everything in her life – her identity, her hometown and her country of residence, Desire is determined that nothing will prevent her achieving from finding her missing son. Not even love.
On a spring evening, she meets the golden boy of F1 racing, Lorcan Shore, and finds herself falling for him. Struggling to suppress her feelings, she realises he could help her get closer to the child she believes is her long lost son.
But nothing goes according to plan. Her identity is revealed by the press, Lorcan has a terrifying accident, and the trail to her son finishes in another dead end. So Desire does what she does best – she runs away.
Set against the glamorous backdrops of Monaco, Paris and Nice, ‘All That the Heart Desires’ mixes romance and mystery as Desire struggles to come to terms with her past.
Will she allow herself to accept love into her life again?
A little bit about June:
My real name is Petra Rovere and I come from Slovenia, a tiny little country in the middle of Europe.
I studied economics although it was not my primary interest and I quickly realised I truly hated it. After the study, I found myself working in mainly male-dominated businesses; at first in the automotive and currently in the steel industry. I can choose the best steel for your needs, but don’t, please don’t, ask me which lipstick brand you should use.
I started to write in high school and was criticised by my Slovene teacher. Stubborn as I am, that didn’t stop me. Under different pen names, I had stories published in magazines, and there my first publisher found me and together we published three books in my language under the pen name Eri Krt.
After having two children, and learning that my second child has autism, I married their father and carried on working. Work and family life left me with little free time. But the desire to write didn’t die. When life somehow sorted itself out, I decided to write a novel in English and it was accepted by Safkhet Publishing. Racing Heart was published on 1st July 2015, but I reverted my author’s rights on the novel on 8th April 2016.
Love the cover, June!
I’ve already had the pleasure of reading All That the Heart Desires. I’ll be posting my review soon, Meanwhile, here’s a little snippet – no spoilers, promise!
Set against a backdrop of the millionaires’ playground of Monte Carlo, this is a compelling story reminding us that our past, and the people we hold dearest, is what shapes us. It’s a story about trust. Trusting our own instincts, but also letting go the fear and allowing ourselves to trust someone to be careful with our hearts. Compelling, intriguing and clearly well-researched, All That the Heart Desires is a book I would recommend. I loved it.
