A Long Time Coming

By

Heather Van Fleet

Contemporary New Adult Novel

From Sunshine Press, 266 pages

Blurb:

Abigail Orson has a problem. A love problem to be precise; and she has absolutely no idea how to go about fixing it.

For years now, she has been chasing her best friend’s brother—demanding things from him that he’s never wanted to give. For one? A real relationship that surpasses well beyond that dreaded ‘just friends’ zone. You see, David Anderson is her idea of perfection to a T. The one and only guy who has ever had the ability to make her heart beat faster; make her toes curl with the simple blink of his long, girly lashes. But David is also a recovering amputee, and the only thing he really wants from Abigail is to be left alone. Abigail is a fighter though, and losing the one guy who has ruined her for every other is no longer an option.

A guy with one leg who has lost his motivation to live—to love—to actually be a man. David believes he’s a waste of space. If only the beautiful girl of his unattainable dreams would get that through her perfect, blonde, stubborn head! He’s not the right guy for Abigail. He’ll never be worthy of what she deserves. However, staying away is almost impossible, especially when he’s just as in love with her as she is with him. But Abigail has a life ahead of her, one that’s definitely livable without a nineteen–year–old gimp like him holding her down. What makes her want to stick around is beyond questionable to David’s mind.

Choices will be made. Lines will be drawn. And together, they will face challenges that nobody saw coming. David and Abigail may have had almost fourteen years to fall in love, but the thing is, timing and love have never exactly worked in their favor.

It has been years in the making, and definitely A Long Time Coming for David and Abigail. Let’s hope they don’t screw it up before they actually have the chance to get it right…

Excerpt :

She spun around, nibbling on her lip, grabbing both of his hands as she pulled him slowly along with her. Her eyes were so focused and shiny that he barely remembered his own name, let alone what he was about to say.

“No crutches, David.”

They made it to the edge of the floor, just as the tempo of the music slowed, to that of a seductive, rhythmic beat. She pulled his hands towards her, and he took that non–verbal command, wrapping his arms around her waist. His fingers knew just what to do, settling into the curves of her body right above her perfect ass. Those damn traitorous body parts had a mind of their own.

“I won’t let you fall…” she whispered in his ear, running her fingers through the back of his hair like a vixen who he wanted to steal away forever, only, though, so he could lock her up with him in the backseat of her car again.

Shit …it wasn’t the fear of falling that worried him. Oh no…it was the fear of never wanting to let her go again.

Top ten things you don’t know about me:

1. Cotton or Silk?

Cotton… I feel all sorts of old saying that J

2.  Champagne/beer/wine?

Champagne, especially with OJ. HUGE mimosa fan here.

3.  Plotter/pantser

Panster, no doubt on that one.

4.  Describe your workspace

I work all over. The couch, my bed, my kitchen table lately. Starbucks is also a big work area for me as well. I’m a diverse like that. My entire last novel was written at my kitchen table. But as long as I have a straw to chew on (yes, you read that right, a straw) then I can write just about anywhere anymore. Which is a relief because I used to only be able to write at SB’s.

5.  Sports fan or just tolerate it?

Depends on the sport. Football is about the only thing I’ll watch. Everything else kind of puts me to sleep.

6.  Who is your biggest influence on writing?

Hmm, such a tough question. I look up to a lot of people when it comes to my writing. Some I talk to on a daily basis, some I fan girl over at conventions and such. Jennifer Armentrout, Karen Y. Bynum, Kelly Gendron are probably my three of my biggest influences in the writing world right now.

7.  Favorite food –

Oh I have way too many to count, so I’m cheating and saying several. Spaghetti, cheese Danishes from Starbucks, pizza, and steak salads from Chipotle. I take my food very serious. J

8.  When did you start writing?

I started about three years ago after my youngest was born. Haven’t stopped since.

9.  If money were no object, where would you like to live?

Probably in the same town I do now, just in a bigger house. Unless of course I could take my entire extended family with me. If that was the case, I’d probably say Hawaii. J
10.  What’s next for you?

Writing wise, I’m kind of in between projects right now. I just finished up a young adult contemporary and am currently on an agent hunt for it. I’m doing Twitter contests and such, taking my time until I can figure out where I go next.

In the fall of 2014 I’ll have another new adult book released—entitled Finding Her Way Back—with the fabulous publishing house, Swoon Romance. I’m also hoping to have the last book in my paranormal trilogy finished up come January…but we shall see. J
