Brought to Life by Dara England
Brought to Life is the story of an ordinary girl from the big city who is a bit of a skeptic about romance…until she cracks the cover of a romance novel and quickly falls in love with the book’s hero--a gallant duke from another century. Soon, however, she is faced with the question, is love enough to bring a fictional character to life?
Now that I’ve given a bit of a run-down, here’s the blurb:
Megan Hurst's life has taken some unexpected turns: First she loses her heart to the dashing hero of a novel. And then she meets an amnesia victim who seems just like him.
The mysterious stranger needs her help to piece his past together, and the closer the two become, the more questions arise about his resemblance to a "fictional" character.
Megan's romantic feelings and her bizarre suspicions bring her to an impossible question... Has she dreamed the Duke to life?
The thing that surprised me most about writing Brought to Life was how easily the words came. I love to write but usually there’s a lot of labor involved in the process and some of the words feel like they’re being dragged out of me. Brought to Life was different. This was the first time I’d written a paranormal romance as well as the first time in years I’d written in a contemporary time period. Maybe that’s what did it. For whatever reason, I look back on the experience of writing Brought to Life with a bit of wonder because it all came about so easily.
