Say Hello to Dora Hiers and Beck's Peace

First of all, let me tell you how much I adore today's guest on A Minute with Marianne. I had the honor of meeting Dora face-to-face in Chicago a few years ago, and she's as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. A true gem of a friend and what a talented author. I'm also blessed by the opportunity to share blog space with her at Seriously Write. In all, she's a dear friend, and I'm delighted to welcome her back and bring you up to date on what's new in her writer world!

After a successful auditing career, Dora left the corporate world to be a stay-at-home mom to her two sons. When her youngest son no longer wanted her hanging out at school with him anymore, Dora started writing Heart Racing, God-Gracing romance. She is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and her local chapter, Carolina Romance Writers.

Dora and her real life hero make their home in North Carolina. When she takes a break from cranking out stories, she enjoys reading, family gatherings, and mountain cabin getaways. She despises traffic, bad coffee, technological meltdowns, and a sad ending to a book. Her books always end with a happily-ever-after!

Dora loves to mix and mingle with her readers, so here's where to find her:

So, now that you've met this lovely lady, let's take a look at BECK'S PEACE, her brand new release from Pelican Book Group!


Burn survivor Savvy McCord doesn't blame her best friend for running away. She can't even look at her scars without wincing. When Beck's disappearing act spans years, she relinquishes dreams of love and marriage. 

Unable to face Savvy's expectations of happily-ever-after, Beck Harmon deserts her, far away from the rumors that he's just like his father. 

When the wanderer returns, dreams of forever blossom in Savvy's heart, but she worries he'll leave again. 

Can Beck convince Savvy that her true beauty comes from her inner strength and faith? Will his idea to help burn victims regain their self-confidence restore Savvy's trust in him? Will love be what the wanderer needs to find peace for his hurting soul?


Here's a juicy tidbit:

His head dipped to within a fraction of a centimeter, his short wisps of breath teasing her.
She licked her lips, anticipating, waiting…

It didn’t take long….but yet, it felt like a lifetime.

His lips grazed hers, just a hint of a kiss. He pulled back, and then with an anguished moan, his hands curled around her waist to bring her tight against his chest. All she could breathe was summer and outdoors, hard work and leather, horses and hay. All things she loved.

Just like the man.

Heaven had come to earth.

That’s what his kiss felt like. Intoxicatingly sweet, but laced with a powerful sensation, a connecting, not just of the heart, but also of minds and spirits, swirling together to form a tight bond, filled with a promise of love.

But look where his last kiss had left her.
