Remember us…when I can’t.
Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.
50 First Dates meets Awakenings in this emotional love story by international and best selling author, Emma Scott.

So Emma posted an announcement on her Facebook Page, where she confirmed that Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul won’t be published after careful deliberation. Here’s a tiny part from her original post:
After much struggle and back-and-forth; after discussion with my dear friends and my amazing sisterhood of authors; after quiet contemplation about my own capabilities and mental health; I have come to the conclusion that Una Bella Anima, the novella that was to accompany the Beautiful Hearts duet, will not be published.
As sad as I was when learning such bad news, I could totally understand why Emma made such a hard decision considering all the heartbreaking things she endured this year after losing her beloved daughter, Isabel. Therefore, please send her some love in any way possible and go read the Beautiful Hearts duet. ❤
I’m sure Emma will appreciate all your support. Thank you. 🙂

Hey, guys! This will be a rather short post because I’m squeezing quality time during work and sleep just to spread some love for my favorite contemporary romance author, Emma Scott‘s, upcoming novella, Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul!
Una Bella Anima is a novella featuring two secondary characters in the Beautiful Hearts duet, coming out in late August and mid-October, respectively. Even though this book shouldn’t be read without reading the duet first, I personally think the duet itself is worthy of giving a shot so hopefully you’ll end up reading all three of them. 😀
A ringmaster’s daughter and a bearded lady’s son join forces to stop a saboteur…
Nineteen-year-old Fleur Klatsch is loyal to her trapeze team and her ringmaster father, dedicated to the circus, and tough on everyone around her. After a series of accidents at Klatsch’s Karnival, Fleur is left holding the ball: she’s running the carnival, trying to stop a saboteur, and taking care of her dad. She doesn’t need anyone’s help, least of all Eugenia Deloren’s son, Marco, who’s been trying to break out of show life since the moment he was born into it.
All Marco needs to do is get Klatsch’s back on its feet so he can leave. But after one fateful kiss with Fleur, will he really want to? And will Fleur and Marco figure out who’s trying to kill the show before someone kills them…

Now Sorsha and apprentice strongman Colm Mackay are travelling south, to evade the fallout and escape the long arm of the law.

But the question for Sorsha and Colm isn’t if the police will catch up with them, but when…

Old hurt runs deep…
After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.
Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.
Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.
Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the sexy smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug ass.
And he kept coming back for more.
I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.
Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.
But some wounds refuse to heal.
I follow one rule in life: Don’t get involved with a Marine.
After this past year of heart-wrenching misery, and an entire childhood as daughter of one of the highest ranked officers in the Marine Corps, I’ve had enough of saying goodbye. I’ve had enough heartbreak to last me a lifetime.
But in an attempt to avoid an awkward run-in with a previous blind date, whom I may or may not have abandoned mid-dinner, I found myself standing in an exam room with Lucas Wells. He was exceptionally handsome on the outside, but the second he started to run that egotistical mouth of his, I wanted to do one of two things: smack him or kiss him.
Lucas Wells, the United States Marine, has me bending my rule in more ways than one.
But the real question is, will I succumb to breaking my rule altogether, or will he break me before I even get the chance? (From: Goodreads)
