Seven weeks have passed since bakery-owner Ren lost the only man she'd ever loved to a fatal skiing accident. Now she must fly to Denver to empty his apartment and find a way to finally say goodbye.

Minor celebrity Eric Sorenson is traveling the country in search of something, but he's not sure what. Ever since his life-saving surgery he's felt incomplete, as if somewhere out there is an elusive something that will make him feel whole again.

The two meet on the plane to Colorado, but what Ren finds in the enigmatic Eric takes her by surprise and she begins to wonder: is it possible for a donated heart to make its way back to its beloved?

Taking Heart is a 59,000 word contemporary romance about loss and hope, and the courage it takes to love again.

Meet the Author

Wilette Youkey is a daydreamer who was born in the Philippines, raised in Australia, and now calls the United States home. At the age of ten she penned a short story inspired by a Judy Blume novel and has been unable to stop writing since.

She has lived on four different continents and most recently inhabited a 240-year-old castle in rural Germany owned by a Graf. She now resides in California with her husband, two daughters, and a mini schnauzer.

Her stories are drawn from dreams, fantasies, music, and trips through airports. Apart from her lifelong affair with words, she also loves graphic design, singing in the shower, Dunkin Donuts, and working out.

If she were a comic book character, she would be called Shorty Smalls and would have the uncanny ability to grow several inches on command.
