Pages: 286  
Genre: Realistic Fiction

“A battered butterfly, he’d build Kimberly up, nurture her strength and watch her return to flight. He repressed the visions dancing in the back of his mind; her naked body brandished red flags and spurred him to stampede. Bulls and butterflies did not mix.”

Jordan Fry’s obsession is born in “You Can’t Force Love” by Marie Drake, Book I in the Locked Hearts Series.

From different towns and social backgrounds, Jordan Fry and Kimberly Orvine experience life-altering abuse, lose a parent and land in the same foster home. Angry, and self-deprecating, fiery redheaded Kimberly is deadset on lousy behavior and suffering the consequences, punishing herself for former sins. Scared by his inner darkness, pyromaniac Jordan has vowed to change for the better. He focuses on Kimberly as the key to his success, but she intends to make him break his promises. Unaware of Jordan’s atrocious actions in the past, she’s dangerously close to unleashing the evil he struggles to contain during their epic battle of wills. Can they both survive?

Crescent Hollow Park’s manager inspected the mobile home and confirmed the existence of furniture and appliances included with their rental. Satisfied, he hung a For Rent sign in the kitchen window; Debbie exchanged her keys for her security deposit.

Jordan opened the passenger door. “No, kiddo; we’re taking Paul’s car; he’s driving mine to the dump and unloading the junk. He’ll meet us at Noreen’s,” his mother said.
“The house of many cats,” Jordan said.
