Today, I'm so excited to talk about my new book! In More Than Words, you'll meet Skye, a voiceover artist (like me!), and Aidan, who works in HR at a children's toy company. This story is Book 2 in my Holiday Hearts series.
Aidan MacKay may be cool, calm, and collected in his Human Resources position for his Army buddy's toy company, but his battle with PTSD is anything but easy.
Things change when he hires voice over artist Skye Daniels to record several company projects. Her voice is like a cool ocean breeze--calm, soothing, and just what Aidan needs. Their exchanges through email and phone calls only make him want more. He's determined to meet her.
Skye has her own demons. After being burned in a fire, she's become a near-recluse, ashamed of her looks and afraid of being an object of pity. She is intrigued by Aidan and yearns for more but doesn't believe he can see past her scars. Still, she'll have to brave meeting him if she wants her lucrative contract with his company to continue. It's time to stop hiding away from the world.
Sparks fly, and they begin a tentative relationship. Aidan fears his PTSD may scare Skye away, but the more he gets to know her, the more he's convinced that she's the one for him. Skye is falling in love with the gentle giant but worries that her fears and insecurities will eventually push him away. Aidan doesn't want to lose the one person who brings him true peace. They need each other. Can he convince her that their love is strong enough to heal their broken pieces?
I really loved writing this story. It shows that beauty is more than skin-deep, that people are braver and stronger than they believe, and that Fate has a funny way of bringing you to where you're supposed to be.
I hope you enjoy it!
