Read full description of the books:
Beaten once again and left for dead by the man she should have been able to trust with her life, Kate awakened from a coma to discover that not only has she lost the precious baby she carried, the beating also damaged her internally so that doctors didn't think she would ever conceive again. As if that weren't enough, Kate is also nearly blind due to the injury to her brain.
Scarred--not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually too--Kate moves in with her childhood friend to try to recover. Eventually her physical body begins to heal, but her emotional state seems to deteriorate with each passing day. It isn't until Patricia Daniels, an Irish psychotherapist, comes into her life that Kate finally starts putting the pieces back together in her shattered life.
Patricia (Trish to her friends) takes Kate with her on holiday to Ireland and Scotland. Through a series of kindhearted Celtic men, brick by brick Kate is finally able to bring down the fortress she's built around herself. The only question is whether a shattered shell of a woman can love wholeheartedly.
Heart Shaped Shards is not only an endearing romance, it is a story of triumph; a testimony to the perseverance of the human spirit. This novel deals with the difficult subject of spousal abuse, but leaves the reader with the knowledge that there is always hope...and when there's hope, amazing things can happen.
"I had a love/hate relationship with this book. I absolutely LOVED the story, but the details of Kate's abuse opened up the closet to my own past. I am actually now in therapy because of it! I have Ms. MacAlister to thank for shoving me down the road to recovery :) "
With her powerful new novel, Ria MacAlister is turning the tables with a hard-hitting depiction of the "woman next door."
"Heart Shaped Shards" replaces swept-back billionaires and doting brides with the possibility that two souls who have been beaten down by the world may one day find each other.

Read information about the authorRia MacAlister has not lived a fairy-tale life. Molested as a child, raped as a teen and abused as a wife, she buried herself in books and relationships to help numb self-deprecating feelings. When her fifth marriage started heading south, she began writing as a panacea of sorts to help heal her own scars.
Also writing as VJ Dunn, believable Christian romance. The upcoming Tenderize© Series is dedicated to those men who aren't the good guys, not the handsome heartthrobs; the lowest of the low, the dregs of society, the men you cross the street to avoid. But for every hardened bad guy, there is always one woman whose soft and tender touch can bring them to their knees…because everyone knows just a little sweetness can tenderize the toughest cut.
Ria/VJ lives in the southwestern United States with her sixth (and she swears last!) husband, who happens to closely resemble the hero of her first novel 'Heartshaped Shards'. She met her husband after she wrote the novel, knowing right away this marriage was meant to be. "There really are happy endings out there…you just have to wait for them."
