Only If You Dare to Believe

The Pulitzer prize winning writer ...
Catherine Hemstead Malloy had it all – riches, glamour and happiness – or so it seemed. When her husband dies in an accident, she discovers she never really had anything at all. Now with nothing but a dismal bank account and her precious daughter, Cate fights to rebuild her life--until her daughter is kidnapped. Cate has no money, no resources – why would someone target her child?

And the knight in shining armor ...
Jason St. Pierre doesn't think of himself as a knight, just a man who does what must be done, lives by his rules and damn the consequences. He'll move heaven and earth to protect the innocent, and his heart--he loved once and lost and won't risk it again, especially to Cate Hemstead.

Their reunion pits them against a kidnapper who is always one step ahead and takes them on a hunt from the majestic mountains of Colorado to the idyllic beaches of Hawaii. Can they solve the who-dunnit turned why-dunnit kidnapping in time to save Cate's daughter?

Review:
"Ms. Sartor splashes action and suspense across a backdrop of rugged mountains and tropical paradise in a panicked search for a little girl kidnapped for reasons deeper than anyone suspects.

An adventure filled with twists and turns, Dare To Believe will keep you turning the page until every secret is revealed. Audra Harders, author of Rocky Mountain Hero"


This book is rated PG. Not spicy, but a slight hint of heat.

Plus, there is a teaser chapter of Stone of Heaven, debuting Dec. 2012
And I have a free music download.

Meet the Author

L.A. SARTOR
was born in Germany and was very lucky to be adopted by an American couple. They lived in Germany for several years, then moved to California and later Colorado. Her parents encouraged her to be creative and nurtured her “Lessie do it” attitude.

She started writing around the age of 4 when she dictated stories to her mother, who patiently wrote them down while L.A. illustrated them. (She generously describes the scribbles she made as “illustrations.”)

After college she moved to Los Angeles but was lured back to Colorado with the promise of managing a new business. There she worked for many years alongside her mother, designing and crafting beautiful jewelry. The women were chosen by the University of Colorado to create their Ceremonial Mace and Presidential Chain of Office, a wonderful legacy.

L.A. lives in Colorado with her husband, whom she met on a blind date—she can't imagine life without her best friend. She plays in the mountains and travels as much as possible.

Now it’s L.A.'s desire to move onward in her writing career and create stories that translate into adventures on the page with her novels and magic on the screen with her screenplays.

This debut novel by L.A.Sartor is a captivating read. Opening in scenic Colorado and traveling to tropical Hawaii, the story features a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist turned single mom dealing with the reality that her child has been kidnapped. Estranged neighbor and former friend reluctantly offers his help and support to find the child, knowing the close involvement with mother and child threatens to open emotional wounds too deep to completely heal. The twist and turns of the why-dunnit keep the tension fresh in your mind through the whole story. Sartor has created engaging characters that quickly work their way into your heart. The romantic arc is touching and believable as they grow to trust each other and themselves and discover what really matters most. I'll be looking forward to many more stories from this excellent author.

A lovely portrayal of love and mending relationships wrapped around intrigue to do with a kidnapping. I read this book in two days but would've read it in one if I'd had the time. It was a beautifully developed story that was greatly entertaining. Ms. Sartor does a splendid job of bringing her characters and imagery to life so much so that we meld right into the background, feeling every bit integral to this story. I can't wait to see what this author has up her sleeve for her next story.

Dare To Believe is a great read. Just when you think you've got it figured out, Ms. Sartor throws another wrench into the mix. But not just any wrench, her tosses are well thought out and make sense. They just aren't what you expected until they happen. She keeps you on your toes. She also keeps you rooting for the hero and heroine to get back together. A great love conquers all story.
