Hard Choices by Joan Farraneau

She was his first love. He was her plaything.

Ten years ago to the day, Sean Hartwood left Forton, Texas with a promise never to return. Now, despite his promise, he’s back, back to the one place he swore he’d never see again, back to the same tired streets where his heart was broken so long ago.

For ten years, Sam Atley has dreamed of picking up and leaving Forton. Married to an abusive alcoholic and stuck in a dead-end job at the local diner, she’s lost all hope of leading a happy life in this backwoods town where nothing ever seems to happen. That is, until one morning when a handsome, mysterious stranger appears in town. From the moment Sam sets eyes on him, she knows her entire world is about to change.

But can love flourish when secrets abound and the past comes crashing into the present? Sometimes, the answer isn’t so simple…

Hard Choices is a standalone 53,000-word novel complete with HEA.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am a former military member and have seen the effects PTSD can have on those who have been to war, and how it affects every aspect of their lives.
I decided to write a series that focuses on three ex-marines who feel lost and broken after leaving the services, and the women who help them heal and find peace. The books deal with some pretty heavy issues that many veterans struggle with, including mental health issues, alcoholism and self-medication, and difficulties transitioning into civilian life.
I've also pledged to donate a portion of every sale from each book in the series to a charity dedicated to helping veterans in crisis.

John and Erica are a practical married couple. They’ve always been content to color inside the lines. All that changes when John accidentally overhears an intimate telephone conversation between his best friend, Steve, and his lovely wife, Alice. When Steve explains that Alice is free to date other men, John and Erica realize that not everyone leads such a vanilla life! If anything, Alice’s tastes tend more toward chocolate! You see, Alice likes black men! And she likes them big!

Burning with curiosity, John and Erica soon find themselves obsessed with their friends’ antics and eager for any and all details, which Steve and Alice are all too happy to provide! The more they hear, the more they begin to wonder just what it would be like…

Author Bio:
I’m just your average, run-of-the-mill family man with an overactive imagination and a secret passion for writing naughty stories. A lot of these tales deal with wives or girlfriends exploring taboo fantasies with the support of their "significant others". I write the kinds of stories that I enjoy reading and try to create a narrative that pulls the reader in and establishes a real interest in the characters as people, with plenty of steamy action to keep things lively. I hope you enjoy them!
