Release day: Treasured Love

6 February 2018

Today is the official release of Treasured Love by Vanda Vadas (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

Love is not limited to age. It’s timeless and for the young and mature at heart. Be it that sizzling first meet-cute romance or time-tested relationship, this collection of touching tales demonstrates themes of love, loss and marriage.

Queen of Diamonds
Grace is a croupier at a casino, the consummate professional with unwavering concentration. She is caught off-guard when a stranger with piercing blue eyes takes a seat at her table. Blackjack is not the only hand he sets out to win.

A Passionate Love
Cherry Tree Lodge in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia is no ordinary Bed and Breakfast. It harbours a secret, one that is connected to a Bohemian brooch, a photograph and a child’s wisdom. Truths are revealed in the indelible footprints of a passionate love.

Liquid Sapphire
Josh works nights as a barman in an exclusive hotel. When a woman his age enters the bar in search of employment, Josh has good reason to stare. She’s dressed like a cowgirl ready to rope a calf in a country rodeo. What could she possibly know about champagne, swizzle sticks and cocktails?

Unbroken Bonds
Finding your soul mate is one thing, marrying her and never letting go is another. Cedric succeeded on all counts. No regrets. Even though he now fights a losing battle, nothing can sever the ties with his one true love.

Lovin’ You
Compromise is a two-way street. Not so for Connor and Kate. Consequent to personal sacrifice and broken promises, their marriage is on a downward spiral. Salvation is at hand if only fears are faced.

Vanda dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I’m often asked from what or where do I draw inspiration to write. Inspiration is endless and often comes from the most unlikely sources. It could be an experience, a place, a person, an object or image. Such is the case with Treasured Love. The idea behind Liquid Sapphire sprang from a particular glass bottle. Queen of Diamonds was conceived from a deck of cards. One of my favourite destinations, the picturesque Blue Mountains in NSW, Australia, inspired A Passionate Love. Winter Hill, in Buckinghamshire, England, affords excellent views over the Thames Valley and Chiltern Hills. The locale holds special memories for me and is the inspiration behind Unbroken Bonds. Lastly, Lovin’ You came about when observing afternoon sunlight filtering through cedar blinds. I trust you will delight in reading these five short stories about the first meeting between two people; about couples who’ve found in each other their soul mate, and how love can endure and stand the test of time.
