Pierre's Choice - A Captivating Novel of Love and Betrayal

Adult; Romance; (Market)

Pierre's Choice, a dynamic novel of intrigue and suspense, takes the readers on an engaging tale of love and betrayal--one that is filled with suspense as the protagonist tries to maneuver the love triangle he created involving his injured fiancee and her nurse. The story takes you at an hectic pace as Pierre juggles his time between both women, and constantly questions why he cannot make a choice, at the same time, wondering if it is possible to be in love with both women. Readers are reminded of the importance of openness and truth in a relationship, as well as giving consideration to someone's feelings. Pierre's ultimate choice will surprise and perhaps confuse the readers, which culminates in an ending filled with an unexpected and fascinating twist.

"This cautionary tale of love, loss, betrayal, and eventual tragedy is compelling in its ability to engage as well as evoke serious emotions. The interior monologue exposes the tortured depths of the protagonist's soul, reminding readers of the importance not only of considering our relationships with others as we traverse this earth but also the necessity of being considerate of others' emotional well-being. The unexpected ending will no doubt amaze as well as confound. Needless to say, this novel will generate much discussion."

Jayden Welch, Assistant Publisher, Writers of the West

"Something about this book felt so comforting yet heart-rending to me; I can't help but put myself in the main character's shoes, posing a personality like a Victorian Byronic hero simply trying to find balance, love, and morality within a sea of events and character flaws. The flaws themselves hit home, right smack in the middle of my heart, flaws so relatable yet destructive. Despite being a woman, I could not help but be Pierre in my head throughout my read, and with his ultimate exit from the story, I too felt my momentary exit from reality quite literally."
