TULSA, OKLA., February 9, 2021 — How can a relationship that starts for all the wrong reasons feel so right? And what happens when two lovers find themselves struggling against an angry ex-girlfriend, the rumor mill, and secrets that threaten to turn the relationship upside-down?
That’s the question answered in TORN TIES, a steamy romance with plenty of sexual tension and drama ripped straight from the real-life experiences of debut author Nadia L. Braeckel. Raised in a conservative home rooted in Lebanese-American culture and values, she unexpectedly found herself as a young adult in a heated relationship that led to both a sexual awakening and much emotional pain. Seeing firsthand how love and struggle can lead to positive change, she turned her own personal story of redemption into a hot and heavy romance tale that will have fans of Meg Cabot, Penny Reid, and Nalini Singh falling in love with her story.
“TORN TIES is not just another love story—it’s my story of how my husband and I met,” says Braeckel of the erotic tale set in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “It was a dramatic time in my life, being ridiculed and shamed by many people, and I didn’t have a voice during it all. So I took the fire inside me and used it as fuel to write my truth, my version of the story.”
Braeckel’s novel not only tells a romantic story, but also examines the consequences of choices made, and the ways that the court of public opinion can be damaging, and even ultimately transformative. “I hope my book inspires those who have gone through similar situations to know that the decisions we make affect every part of our life, and that following your heart can sometimes cause the change we need in order to be successful.”
When not writing, Braeckel spends time raising her first-born son and enjoying life with her husband. She is hard at work on her next novel, a sequel to TORN TIES.
