How do you heal a broken heart?

Money is no comfort to real estate heir Soren Lund when he loses the woman he loves, so he flees his privileged life in London for a sleepy Costa Rican fishing village. There he finds peace, purpose, and the passion to follow his dreams, until a surfing accident threatens to end it all.

Rescued from Death’s door by the beautiful and mysterious Elena Sol, Soren lets her into his heart while trying to break down the walls around hers. And when a ghost from Elena’s past threatens their new happiness, he knows he must fight, or risk finding himself alone and adrift once more.

About Aviva Vaughn

Aviva Vaughn is the author of BECKONED—slow burn women’s fiction inspired by food, travel, and Jane Austen. A lifelong bibliophile, she enjoys a wide variety of genres from historical fiction to science fiction to non-fiction, and loves reading, and writing, hot—scientifically accurate—sex.

Her series—BECKONED—features strong, educated, diverse characters, with heroines who speak their mind and heroes who respect them for doing so. She writes so that her daughter will have inspirational, multicultural book characters to identify with, and to offer readers the opportunity to travel the world through her writing. Her favorite feedback is when readers say they can “taste the food” and “see the sights” of the locations in her books as these two did:

I found myself stealing away to read this book. Every moment I could grab it and get a few more pages in, I took it! The love story was so tantalizing. The lovers, Angela and Soren, have incredible chemistry and the love scenes are so erotic. The settings are so vivid, I felt like I was truly in Barcelona and London. Made me long to be there. -Natascha, 5-Star Review

Beckoned was so much fun. Aviva Vaughn’s unapologetically sensual, witty, and headstrong female lead is a modern day Lizzy Bennet. Angela pairs perfectly with the charming, reserved nature of the swoon-worthy Soren – a perfect starched and buttoned-up Mr. Darcy foil to our plucky heroine. I loved traveling vicariously through Europe. The descriptions of local food and historical landmarks add color to the fast-paced narrative of our two romantic leads.-Amy, 5-Star Review

Aviva is not afraid to try new things, which has made for an interesting—although not always straight forward—life. Her favorite “two truths and a lie” line is: I have ridden bareback in the Navajo nation, I have jumped out of an airplane over New Zealand, and I have gone spelunking in Costa Rica. The answer appears at the end of BECKONED, Part 4: From Barcelona with Love ;^)
