Author Lili Mahoney
Lili lives in a rural area of the Texas Hill Country, where her husband, three kiddos, dogs, and miscellaneous other critters create just enough chaos to keep her seated in reality and not lost in another novel with her fictional friends. They also remind her daily that the very best stories come from memories of being with family. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kiddos, drinking strawberry smoothies, and not cooking.
As a child she had a tough time learning to read because of dyslexia and ADD, so you’ll find that her books are fast paced and full of characters with their own flaws.
She writes what entertains her, that being strong women, loads of action, and interesting problems that might be a little out of the ordinary. She has grown to love reading and enjoys books that suck you in and don’t let you go. Lili’s hopes and dreams are that her own stories do the same for her readers.
For Love or Freedom
Women’s Fiction / Romance
Tatum hasn’t had it easy. Her life has been a series of battles, but that hasn’t stopped her from finding and hanging onto what she wants and loves. She’s come a long way from the small farm in Texas she was born on – she’s earned her own way through college on diving scholarships, then moved to begin her career as an elite swim team coach, and is doing her best to survive her life as a widow and single mom.
When Nic Lobo literally steals her away from the life she’s fought to keep together, the most basic of responses is to hate him with every fiber of her being. His quick temper and random absences make that easy. So is the fact that she’s still in love with her dead husband, though she’s also very angry at him for the way in which he left her. But Nic is stubborn and committed, and he has the uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before, not even with the father of her child. He forces Tatum to respond to him the only way he knows how and that terrifies her in so many ways.
Will she fight him to the death, refusing to forgive him for the harm he’s caused, or will he wear her down until she acknowledges the connection their souls won’t allow to be severed.
