Real Love Can Heal A Broken Heart by Marianne Stephens

Heartache. Rejection. Broken promises in a love relationship that you thought was "real". Many of us have gone through the sadness of saying goodbye to a relationship we thought would last!

I fell madly in love with "Joe" when I lived in VA. The "head over heels" type of love. Everything was going fine...until I found out he was engaged to a woman "back home" in Iowa. Feeling betrayed and crushed, I had two options: continue seeing him and hope he'd break his engagement, or move on.

I moved on. I realized that if he was cheating on his fiancee with me, what would stop him from doing the same thing to me? Sigh.

This proved to be the best decision I have made in my life. My roommate dragged me to a dance at an nearby army post, and I met my husband! Although wary of what I was being told, once he took me to meet his parents, I knew he was honest and trustworthy. 

My "real" love and I have been married almost 45 years...and no more broken heart for me!

In my story, Operation Man Hunt...in the Romance Books '4' Us published anthology, ENTICE ME - LUSCIOUS LOVE STORIES, my heroine is nudged back into the dating world after suffering through a broken heart. The hero entices her into her world as she entices him into hers. Once they settle some differences and share a common goal of honesty in their relationship, love blossoms for that "happily-ever-after".

I hated men like that..."It's not cheating if she's not here". Phew... you escaped a huge heartbreak! Glad you found your own happily ever after!

Tshirts! They look amazing! All the best with the series!

It's always good to hear when making the right decision (he cheated on her; he'd cheat on you) leads to the right thing. 45 years! Congrats!
