Linda Glaz's Historical Romance With Eyes of Love

Back Cover Blurb:
Barbara Richardson is living a charmed life. Perfect family, beautiful voice, wealthy fiancé. But when she realizes her soon-to-be husband only values her for her pretty face, her life is suddenly in turmoil. Then a handsome young man comes to her rescue when she’s stranded in a storm on Christmas Eve. And the world suddenly seem full of possibilities…

Unlike her former fiancé, Jackson Judge loves Barbara for everything she is, inside and out. But how could so lovely and talented a woman ever love a scarred monster like him? All he can see, shut away in his room, are his wounds from Pearl Harbor. Jackson finds himself questioning God’s plan, but Barbara knows real love looks deeper than beauty or scars. Eyes of love see straight to the heart.

Book Excerpt:

          She looked up at him, grinning—breathless with the same self-assured grace he'd fallen in love with that first day when she had glared at him through the car window almost daring him to be fresh. That was a long time ago when he had something to offer a woman.
“Well, don't you have anything to say?”
Words filled his throat, but a lump stuck halfway, wouldn't budge. His family stared. Finally a croak pressed through dry lips, “Welcome, Barbara.” He shifted his face away as he had learned to do to keep people from seeing the worst of his scars, but her gentle hands reached up, too his face in her palms and turned him to look at her.
“Thank you. I had hoped to be welcomed by you. She giggled. “Now, I'm afraid all this hospitality has left me famished. I don't mean to be rude, Mrs. Judge—” she glanced her direction “—but I lollygagged so long this morning, I missed breakfast. I can't wait to taste that heavenly roast I've been smelling in the kitchen since we came home.” Her hands stayed on Jackson’s cheeks.
His mother tidied the edge of her apron and blushed, tears in her eyes. “Soup’s on. Let’s go, Will. Hurry along, all, we've got a starving waif in our midst.” Her plump hands pulled Barbara to her, away from Jackson.
Barbara glanced over her shoulder and winked in his direction.  His mouth opened and closed. Wordless.

Author Bio: 
Linda, married with three grown children and three grandchildren, is a complete triple-A personality. How else would she find time to write as well as be an agent for Hartline Literary Agency?

She loves any and every thing about the written word and loves when families pass stories along through the generations. She was blessed to have served in the Air Force during the Vietnam era at a time when it wasn't the politically correct thing for a woman to do. 

After that, she taught self-defense and karate as well as soccer. Okay, so make it a quadruple-A personality. 

Now, her greatest thrill, other than a contract of her own, is matching clients with publishing houses and hearing their voices when they get “THE CALL”. In other words, she wears so many hats, she should have been invited to “the” royal wedding.

You can find her on the web at her personal blog. And on the agency blog: From the Heart

She also has a facebook presence. Just type in Linda Glaz and you've got her whether you want her or not.

My favorite Disney princess is Belle -- because she looked beyond the outside to see the true person within. And this sounds like the same kind of story so I would love to read it. djragno (at) hotmail (dot) com.

One of my fave movies which I'm sure influenced my love of books with a scarred hero, was The Enchanted Cottage. A homely girl and handsome man who returns from the war, all scarred and maimed, but when they moved into the cottage, they couldn't see each others faults. And they were blissfully happy. I might love grit in a story, but I do love happy endings. Whoever wins? Hope you enjoy!
