Notes From a Romantic’s Heart is pleased to welcome author Anette Bower for this stop on her review tour. Her featured book, Fearless Destiny, is from Soul Mate Publishing.

About The Book


mediakit_bookcover_fearlessdestinyFrom the Romance Review Readers Choice nominee, Annette Bower, comes a new small town romance, Fearless Destiny. Tiffany George, riding high on her commission as a fresco artist, returns home for some deserved rest and relaxation.

The drive is uneventful until she rescues Will Cleaver on the side of a highway. While savoring memories of a kiss and a well formed butt, her future goals do not include a romance.

Once in town, she discovers the hopes and dreams of her community hinge on the development of a new resource mine and Will Cleaver’s designed neighborhood. Her parents demand she give up art and resume her working partner role in the family business. Tiffany George is pulled by her community roots and stretched by her newly discovered independence.

Will Cleaver knows about taking charge of destiny. He models the courage she uses to become the woman she needs to be.

An Excerpt

The words “hello there” ploughed down the silent hallway as Tiffany’s roadside linebacker advanced with a synchronized arm and leg crutch-walk.

Tiffany bit her cheek while she watched her father grab the railing on the wall. She stepped forward. “Tiffany George of George’s Family Plumbing. There’s a water break.”

His gaze traveled up from her chest to the collar of her pink coveralls and then to the top of her head, where she was sure her spikes had tumbled like dominoes. Then down to the tips of her lime-green boots. “Nice boots, real nice boots.”

Tiffany tugged at the weight of the tool bag across her body.

“A sprite of many talents, I see.” He gripped his walking aids.

“We can’t all be just a pretty face.” She could have bitten off her tongue.

He raised his eyebrows and his eyes sparkled. They weren’t black after all, but a deep brown.

“You think I’m pretty?” He sounded amused.

She took a wide stance and began an assessment of him from the tip of his dusty loafers, gray trousers, a rumpled white shirt with the sleeves rolled up to the elbows exposing firm, and tanned arms. His whiskers shadowed across his firm jaw, his full lips held neutral, his straight nose and those dark watchful eyes had deep etched laugh lines around them. “You have a certain road weariness that I’d like to capture on paper.” Reaching with her callused fingers, she touched his beard.

Nancys Book Reviews Banner

Author Annette Bower has penned yet another wholesome romance. Her heroine, Tiffany, shows wonderful strength of character even when she struggles between the life she’s made and the one she left behind. Romance is not in her plans.

Enter the hero, Will, sent to this small Canadian prairie town to oversee the housing he’s designed. Easy on the eyes, Tiffany finds him hard to resist.

Can Tiffany give up her new-found independence and do what’s expected of her? And what about Will? Is he just passing through or is their romance destined to last?

Well written, the story perfectly conveys the feelings of both the hero and heroine, as well as gives just the right amount of insight from the secondary characters without overshadowing the romance or the story itself.

    What are your three favourite settings to write about?

    • Good morning Mai,
      My favourite settings are a community in an urban setting, a small town setting and for my new novel I’m going to write about Saskatchewan’s agricultural industry.
