A man running from his past. A woman fighting for her future.
In what world could they ever conntact? Not this one.
Richard Winters is certain small-town Summitville, North Carolina is a safe haven from his demons…until a woman with stunning green eyes resurrects the protective instinct that once cost him everything. And rattles the walls of his armored heart.
Noémie Bellerose knows her place in this prejudiced town, but Richard is temptation on two wheels. Despite their best intentions, attraction—and trouble—finds them both. Can love bloom where it’s planted, or will hate rip out their love by the roots?
Twisted Proposal is a standalone dark romance in the Central Florida Stories
“As a reader, I felt the build-up of sexual tension and reveled in the “when will they”, just as much as the participants. This is a real fillip to the author and it is what makes this book so very readable and one of the best of its genre. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can highly recommend it to all readers who like a true romance, but also enjoy a bit of action and thoughtful social comment.”
~ Grant Leishman for Readers’ Favorite
“Noemie’s Journey is a wonderfully evocative story, with enduring characters and a writing style that cuts straight to the heart. Set in the turbulent 1960s, it poignantly addresses the divide between traditional values and moral imperatives. It’s a beautiful romance whose historical setting frames the obstacles they had to overcome.”
~ Viper Spaulding for The International Reviews of Books

“Victoria Saccenti’s writing is beautiful with an almost lyrical quality. The characters are rich and fully formed and the story is compelling. You will love her descriptions to the smallest detail.”
