Here is what you need for the Blog Tour Promo post of Beholden To You.

Beholden To You Synopsis:

On the heels of tragic loss, the stunning and innocent Natalie Mason, meets handsome business mogul Mac Carter. As Natalie attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, circumstances beyond her control draw her and Mac into a situation she wants kept secret. The two are a matched set having both experienced immense loss in their lives. Uncertain of what she should do, she decides to give fate a chance, opening her heart to Mac, who just wants to love her.

But the past, who often times takes no prisoners, rears its ugly head in a double dose. Mac’s ex-girlfriend cannot accept that their love affair is over and takes drastic measures through deception and blackmail to ensure that Mac will be hers.

Natalie, on the other hand, has to face the one responsible for her sister’s death. As her journey begins to bring justice and closure, the past transports to her feet an unexpected surprise—a long lost love desiring to posses her as his once again.

Will Mac and Natalie’s newly blossoming love be able to endure what the past has delivered or will the victors of their hearts be the old flames who are staking their claim?

Author Bio:
I have always had a passion for reading my entire life. I love it so that I dedicated my life to educating children. As a teacher, I have had the profound pleasure of teaching children to read and explore their imaginations through a good book. Just recently I decided to write a story that had been on my mind. Now I have several that I want to turn into additional books. Writing has become a passion that I dearly love.

I live with my handsome husband in Southern California. We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle that California provides. We have two beautiful dogs, but no children.

 Natalie went to shower, and after getting dressed, I went to place our order with Trina. When breakfast was ready and Natalie had still not come up, I decided to check on her. As I approached the bathroom, I heard sobs coming from within.
“Baby, are you okay?”
She just cried more.
“Can I come in?”
“Okay,” her trembling voice answered.
I could see her gorgeous body shaking through the clear shower door. I grabbed the towel off the rack, opened the door, and took her by the hand. Stepping out of the shower, I wrapped both the towel and my arms around her. Continuing to cry, she choked out, “I’m sorry.”
“Shh. There’s nothing to be sorry about. It’s only natural for you to be sad.”
“I just miss her, Mac. So much.”
“I know, baby, I know.”
“After our parents died, Jessica and I made our own tradition. We spent Christmas Eve with our parents’ friends, the Millers, but on Christmas day we would go downtown and help at the homeless shelter. Knowing there would be children there, we always brought a trunk full of gifts. It always worked out that we had just the right number of gifts for the homeless boys and girls. It was all Jessica’s idea. In many ways, she was so selfless and so loving. I hate how our relationship ended. Angry…hurtful. Each of us saying things we can’t take back now.”
We stood there in the bathroom, my arms encircling her petite frame, her head resting on my chest. There was nothing I could say to take her pain away, so I didn’t say anything.
“How did you get through your first Christmas after your parents died?”
“Neil’s mom got me through it. I just wanted to stay home, but she wouldn’t let me be alone. She convinced me her family was my family, and they were there for me no matter what. They got me through everything.” Her grip on me tightened. “I’m here for you and I’m never letting you go.”
