About the book:

Title: Stubborn Love
Author: Wendy Owens
Publisher: Four Bean Soup Publishing
Release date: June 22, 2013

Even a broken heart has trouble resisting a Stubborn Love.

Emmie Hayes loved the beautiful Ashton Stirling deeply; nobody could deny that. She had given him her youth, and all he gave in return was misery and pain. She was ready for a new beginning, but Ashton wasn’t about to let her go so easily, even if it meant destroying both their lives in the process.

Three years later Emmie convinces herself she is ready to leave all of that heartbreak in the past and find a little piece of normal for herself. She heads to New York City to pick up where she left off, determined to finish art school. Emmie is determined to focus on school and not let anything distract her, but life has a way of throwing curveballs.

Paige, Emmie’s new roommate, brings Colin Bennett into her life. His smoldering eyes and lean muscular body are difficult for any girl to ignore. Only thing is, Emmie isn’t any girl. Her past makes her resistant to his charms. Colin isn’t one to give up easily, and just when he thinks he may have found a way to her stubborn heart, her tragic history may have found a way to tear them apart.

Guest post: Wendy Owens' Top 10 Favorite Authors (in no particular order)

Hi! My name is Wendy Owens and I am the author of Stubborn Love, a New Adult Romance novel. I spend a lot of time trying to get the word out about my books, but sometimes as an author, I like to stop and gush about other authors. So today, as my guest post, I want to talk about some of my favorites.

  1. Colleen Hoover
  2. Abbi Glines
  3. Jessica Sorensen
  4. J.K. Rowling
  5. Jennifer Armentrout
  6. Tiffany King
  7. Ella James
  8. Suzanne Collins
  9. Addison Moore
  10. Hugh Howey

I just realized the problem with this type of top ten lists: ten spots are not nearly enough to list the authors I love.

Excerpt from Stubborn Love:

Following the canvas through the door, I continued to try and plead my case, but Colin wouldn’t hear it. I rode up in silence, attempting to think of other reasons this was not a good idea. The elevator came to a stop on the floor just above where I knew Colin’s loft was. When the gates opened it set off a reaction, triggering the overhead lights automatically. Sprawling out before me was a vast and open warehouse space, random boxes and construction supplies strewn throughout.

“This floor has power so it should work for you,” Colin explained, slipping some money into the delivery boy’s hand.

“No, let me get that,” I insisted, digging into my oversized pockets, but before I could turn around, the kid had closed the gate the car already lowering him out of site. “I wish you wouldn’t have done that.”

“Nonsense,” Colin said, leaning the canvas against a nearby column. “It’s business.”

“Pardon me?” I asked, confused by his statement.

“After we talked the other day and you mentioned you sell your artwork I started doing some digging. I looked up your website, and I must say, your work is quite impressive,” Colin praised.

“You what?” I asked, trying not to reveal how flattered and mortified I was. Apparently you can be both at the same time.

“I have a proposition for you.” All right, I’ll admit it. I’m not proud of the first thing that popped into my mind after he said that.


***(I know, I’m evil... what might that proposition be?)

About the author:

Wendy Owens was raised in the small college town of Oxford, Ohio. After attending Miami University, Wendy went on to a career in the visual arts. After several years of creating and selling her own artwork, she gave her first love, writing, a try.

Since 2011, she has published a young adult paranormal series, The Guardians, which will contain five books total, as well as a novella.

Wendy now happily spends her days writing—her loving dachshund, Piper, curled up at her feet. When she's not writing, she can be found spending time with her tech geek husband and their three amazing kids, exploring the city she loves to call home: Cincinnati, OH.

Stubborn Love is her debut New Adult novel. Only In Dreams, the second book in this series, is set to be released December 2013.
