It’s almost Valentine’s Day; the time of year we turn our thoughts toward love. Whether it’s to appreciate the love we have, dream about the love we want, mourn the love we’ve lost, or even to shun the holiday altogether, chances are, we’re thinking about love.
Love is a tricky thing, you can search for it, prepare for it, wait expectantly for it, but I’ve found love usually finds you when you’re least expecting it. That’s the case with my own love story, and it’s also what happens to Sara in Journey of Awakening.
I suppose you can say Sara is career minded. She has a task to preform and she is rather single-minded in her pursuit of it. When she meets Tobar she doesn’t quite know what to do with the feelings he generates. She’s been trained how to fight and how to heal, but growing up with just her grandfather on a tiny island doesn’t prepare her for the charismatic and attractive desert tribesman. Not to mention there is more than just her quest to stand in the way of their love.
But then are you ever really prepared when love finds you? I know I wasn’t.
I’d love to hear how you met your significant other and/or how you’re planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
