For Your Heart

Hill Dweller Retellings, Book One

Book Description

Experience THE BALLAD OF TAM LIN like you’ve never read it before…

It has been seven years since Jeanette Sauderheim followed her best friend into Carver Hall Park…and came out alone. Jeanette has never gotten over his mysterious disappearance nor has she gone back into the park. While that traumatic night still haunts her, Jeanette distracts herself by balancing her time between trying to pass Spanish, hanging out with her friends, and reading the latest manga.

But, when a promise to a friend drives her back into the park, she’s forced to re-live the memories of that night. Lost and confused, Jeanette crosses paths with Tamrin, whose violent reaction to her provides yet another reason to avoid the park.

Tamrin, a knight of the Summer Court, has been sent to Earth to guard a garden of roses that hold special meaning to the queen of the Summer faeries. When his distraction at meeting Jeanette leads to her picking one of the Summer Queen’s roses, Tamrin vows to right his failure to do his duty.

However, the equivalent of one of the queen’s roses is a human heart and Tamrin’s reluctance to readily exact the sum from Jeanette sets in motion a spiral of love, betrayal, and magic that could mean damnation for them both.

*This is an Upper YA paranormal romance novel with NA and contemporary fantasy appeal.


He bites his lip.  “I would like to allow you that boon, Lovely, I would.  But I can’t wait that long.  I’m sorry.  You’ve got exactly one year.”  He stands, his expression determined and resolute.  “Until then, you will care for that heart like it is diamond encrusted and I shall make sure of it.”
I stare at him, unmoving as he goes toward my bed, divests himself of his weapons, and stretches across the side I never sleep on.  He pluffs up my sushi pillow, shifts into a comfortable position, and settles his gaze on me.
It takes a minute to compute what’s happening and then I push myself up on shaking arms.  “No,” I insist with a shake of my head.  “You are not staying here.”
“I can’t go back to Roxel, she’ll want to know about the rose.”
“Go pawn yourself off on some other chick.  You don’t seem to have any problems with that.”
Tamrin looks around the room.  “No, I like it here.  I’m staying.”
I feel my jaw drop.  “You can’t stay here,” I insist.  “You can’t freeload off of my dreams and then steal my heart!”
He cocks his head, regarding me with thoughtful eyes.  “I can pay, if you like.  I promise you’ll be pleased.”  The tone of his voice is far too suggestive.
I blink, then blush crimson.  “What?  No!”  My voice is too high pitched, scandalized as I am.  “I’m not,” I struggle for words, “I’m not that kind of girl.  I don’t do stuff like that.  I’m Catholic.  You know, virgin until marriage.”
Tamrin frowns and then shrugs.  “Suit yourself.  But, I’m not leaving.”
