Meet the heroine from Untangle My Heart by Maria K. Alexander

Welcome back. I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today about my contemporary romance, Untangle My Heart.

Next, I'll share more about my heroine. Kate DiFrancesco is a fiery-tempered Italian with a lot of emotional baggage. She’s loyal to her family and willing to do anything to help them out. She hides her painful past behind snarky comments but her bark is harsher than her bite. She had a three-week fling with the hero, who she expected would be returning, permanently, to his home in jolly ol' England. Imagine her surprise when he moves to New York City and is now one of her bosses. 
Physical Characteristics: Long, auburn, wavy hair. 5'4", brown eyes.
Age: 34
Primary Strength: Determination
Fatal Flaw: Independence
3 Things Value Most in Life: Family, honesty, integrity
Fettish: Shoes. She fancies 4" heels of all colors (red is her favorite) and types
Pet peeve about the hero: his calm demeanor
What scares her most about the hero: falling in love with Mr. Wrong only to find out he’s Mr. Right.

 Here's an excerpt describing Kate, written from the hero's point of view.

Kate moved through the main dining room, examining every inch with her critical eyes. Skintight jeans hugged the sweetest ass he’d ever seen—and touched. The emerald green sweater fit snug to her narrow waist and revealed enough cleavage to remind him of the perfect breasts beneath. Then there were the red suede boots. The heels added a good four inches to her height and did all kinds of things to arouse his libido. She’d left her hair natural and it framed her face in a tumble of auburn curls, which he knew often drove her crazy, but made her appear wild and delectable. At least to him. He scowled and dragged his gaze away from her to the pad. Get a bloody grip.

Hi Catherine. I just got my hair highlighted yesterday and had my hairdresser put in some auburn highlights. Not a lot, but definitely noticeable. Thanks for stopping by.
