A Heart Not Easily Broken by M.J. Kane

From debut author, M.J. Kane:

Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take “no” for an answer—to accept the challenge. 

When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust.

M.J. Kane:

 M.J. Kane stumbled into writing. An avid reader, this stay at home mom never lost the overactive imagination of an only child. 
As an adult she made up stories, though never shared them, to keep herself entertained. It wasn’t until surviving a traumatic medical incident in 2006 that she found a reason to let the characters inhabiting her imagination free.  
Upon the suggestion of her husband, she commandeered his laptop and allowed the characters to take life. It was that, or look over her shoulder for men caring a purple strait jacket. And the rest, as they say, is history.
No longer a television addict, if M.J. isn’t reading a book by one of her favorite authors, she’s battling with her creative muse to balance writing and being a wife and mother. She resides in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia with her high school sweetheart, four wonderful children, and two pit bulls. MJ can often be found hanging out at the local library where she is director of a local writer’s group, or online connecting with readers and other authors. Other activities she enjoys include: creating custom floral arrangements, assisting her children in their creative pursuits of music and art, and supporting her husband’s music production business, 3D Sounds.
You can find MJ on social networking sites, sharing writing tips, talking about music, life, and family. She’s always excited to meet new people. Connect with her via the websites below.

A Heart Not Easily Broken- The Start of a New Series

All stories have an origin. Be it comedy, science fiction, mystery, or drama, all creative works of art began with the spark of an idea. For me, the experiences women face, no matter what age, was the spark that set off my muse.

Every woman knows, or has been, the woman to live through some traumatic experience in their lives. How do we respond to the event? Do we cower down and lose ourselves because of it? Or do we dig deep within and refuse to let the experience redefine who we are or who we want to be?

How long can we keep before family and friends realize something is wrong? How long can we keep a secret? Will we ever be able to heal? That is the kind of story I wanted to tell.

Once I put pen to paper the stories of strong women, and the men who won their hearts, came flooding out. Most people keep a diary of some sort. The Butterfly Memoirs series gives the reader a chance to peek inside of the diaries of my characters and learn from their experiences. My wish is for the reader to connect with my characters and pull something from the story. Be it hope, understanding, acceptance, of knowing that they are not alone…that is my goal.
But don’t be fooled. My stories are more than just about the women. Men travel down the same emotional path as we do. For every strong woman in my series, there is an equally strong man.

And yes, ladies, they are hot!
