Kindling for the Heart

by Karen Legasy

Josephine Lavigne lives a contented life with Mollie, her golden retriever. Jo’s forestry consulting business is the perfect career for her love of the boreal forest.

Samantha White, a big-city criminal lawyer from Toronto, heads north to her recently inherited cottage to spend a month of respite alone at the cabin. Sam has no experience in northern winters and recklessly puts her life at risk.

Rescued by the moody and attractive forester, Sam is immediately drawn to Jo who sees her as an untrustworthy heartbreaker. After two nights snowed in together at the cottage then relocating to Jo’s house, the women begin to forge a friendship that scares them both.

When a woman with a broken heart meets a woman with a history of breaking hearts, sparks fly. But will there be enough kindling to ignite a fire in this tumultuous winter romance?

"Being born and raised in northern Ontario, it seemed only natural that I’d write a lesbian romance set there. Kindling for the Heart is really at the core of my heart. I’ve always loved the north with its four distinct seasons, big backyard of natural wilderness, and small town spirit.

After finishing My Forever Hero, which is set in Australia, I wanted to write something closer to home in Canada. That the story takes place in the dead of winter was very intentional as well. I love the summer, but after long periods of intense heat like we’ve had this year, I often begin to crave cooler weather. Winter is a cozy time and a great season for cuddling.

One of the struggles for a lesbian living in a small town is that a community of like-minded women can be scant. The chance of meeting someone special is often a challenge and especially for a woman like Jo, who has given up on love after having her heart broken. Sam, on the other hand, lives in a city with lots of opportunity for meeting a woman to love. Her challenge is that the right person for her is in northern Ontario.

The two main characters are thrown together by fate and that’s how life sometimes sorts itself out. Kindling for the Heart is also a Valentine’s Day story. There’s often Christmas in July so why not have a Valentine’s Day this August, or September, or whenever your heart desires?"
