Abandoned Hearts/Regina Tittel

by Regina Tittel
(Patton, MO)

Abandoned Hearts was written with the intention of conveying the subject of abstinence through a fictious story of romance and suspense.

Readers will easily relate with Ann's plot. Having been mistreated in the past by her employer, she's become wary and distrustful of men. But when her heart responds quicker than her head around Jacob, she finds herself in predicaments she'd vowed to always avoid.

How do you step away from a sensual situation that your body doesn't want to flee but your mind is telling you is wrong? Through Ann and Jacob, the author of Abandoned Hearts shows you how. Backed with powerful Bible verses and vivid depictions of time and place, the hero and heroine's plot will continue to occupy your thoughts long after you've finished the book.

Following a short blurb about Abandoned Hearts:

Stranded by flood waters in the heart of the Ozarks, Ann McHaven is forced to stay with a rugged farmer, Jacob Durham. Her annoyance with him soon turns to attraction. The magnetic pull between them puts her faith to the test as temptations tease her thoughts.
Independent and stubborn, Jacob?s eyes and heart are opened to all he has to lose when a fearless mountain lion turns him into the hunted. Will his life be spared long enough to restore his trust in God, and admit his love for Ann?

Regina, how did this story come about?

For the suspense element, that was easy. My entire life, I've been interested in wildlife and am always held in rapt attention by anyone's stories relating to such. As a child, my father entranced me with his story about being stalked by a mountain lion when walking home in the dark. That, along with numerous other 'sighting' stories of those that live around me, conjured up the mountain lion that stalks the characters in my book.

The spiritual element was also somewhat of a natural ocurrence. I've always felt that society needed to back the importance of abstinence and when the topic was approached from the pulpit of our church it easily made its way into my book.

What is your hope or purpose with this novel?

To spread the message to as many people as will hear. No one is perfect, we all make mistakes. But God is gracious and He will show us how to step away from the things not of Him, we only have to be willing to listen.

Abandoned Hearts is available at Amazon and most other ebooks sites and will be available in paperback through CreateSpace at the end of July.
