Vague warnings from the local people aren’t enough to stop her from venturing into the trees, or from picking up a single acorn. It seemed a simple action. But when a stranger emerges from the forest claiming the acorn belongs to him, Rowan finds herself pulled into something both centuries old and deadly.

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger...
Calida Jokobi doesn’t see it that way. Surviving an abusive relationship
with a sadistic, manipulative man changed her. She has spent the last
two years carefully constructing her new persona with two goals in mind:
to keep the remaining pieces of her heart safe and her deepest secrets
buried. One man puts it all at risk.
Malcolm has been a part of Calida’s life for as long as she can
remember. A friend. Her first teenage crush. Now he's asking for
something she swore she'd never give again: her heart.
Calida must decide if she should risk the fragile façade she’s created and give Malcolm the chance he’s asking for.
They say love can heal all wounds…
Malcolm Frankel wants to prove to Calida it’s true. She survived a hell
most people couldn’t fathom. He’s been by her side fulfilling whatever
role she needs him to play. All except the one he wants most. It took
nearly losing her to make Malcolm realize he couldn’t keep denying his
He knows no one goes through an ordeal like that and comes out
unscathed, but the closer they get, the more he learns just how deep
Calida’s wounds go.
She’s the only woman he’s ever loved, and Malcolm is ready to put his own heart at risk for a chance at mending hers.
Behind the Scenes:
Not Broken is the follow to my debut novel, Fiendish: A Twisted Fairytale.
At the end of that book, Calida's story didn't feel complete to me. She
went through a lot and she deserved to find her happy ending.
Not Broken has been written in a way that allows it to be a
standalone. I did that because Fiendish was darker in nature so it's not
a book that appeals to everyone, and I wanted new readers to be able to
enjoy Not Broken without feeling forced to read Fiendish.
I'm a Southern gal. A born and raised Georgia Peach as it were. Most
people find it somewhat amazing that I'm actually from Georgia. Not sure
why, a lot of people live in the state they were born. I'm happily
married to a man that is probably my polar opposite, but we work. We
work well enough to have four kids. One girl, whom I affectionately call
The Girl and 3 boys. The Boy a.k.a Man Child these days (they got their
names before the younger two came along), Curly Top, a.k.a Thing 1, and
Munchkin a.k.a Thing 2. No they are not twins, but close in age.
We are a family of animal lovers. We have three dogs. Pixie, a
Weimaraner, Loki, a Weim/Pit mix, and Thor, a German Shepherd. All from
rescues because that's how we roll. We also have a pet turtle named Leo,
and The Hubs and kids have a snake (I take no ownership of that). For more on Meka and her works, find her on the web at:AuthorPage / Twitter
