THE HEART'S DUTY by Shannon Muir
Kristine David thought she'd finally found a stable marriage and future. As she finds herself less satisfied with her situation, the dark past she's been trying to run from creeps back in and begins to endanger the welfare of others. This is a story of love, betrayal, and owning up to one's mistakes. This contains some adult content situations due to subject matter, but nothing heavily explicit.
Kristine David lived a challenging adolescence,where a lack of a strong female role model and a need to feel loved led her to make poor choices. Now cut off from her family to the point of changing her surname, Kristine believes she's finally found her peace in marrying Juan Luis Mendoza, an former college classmate now running the company inherited from an old mentor. Yet when time begins to tear at the hopes of making dreams come true, Kristine starts to find herself confronted with the opportunity to be tempted by old familiar patterns. Her choices lead to her husband's kidnapping, meeting the illegitimate son of the company founder who claims he should own it, facing up to old issues, and unlocking a trauma Kristine thought her mind buried forever.
