Loving Her Scars is a paranormal romance by B.M. Griffin
Shayla’s scars run deeper than those on her body. Being beaten by a man you loved can do that to you. Shayla barely survived her first love, Eric. He left her broken and scarred in more ways than one.
Her best friend Adam is the only man she has been able to trust since. Friends since childhood, Adam has been in love with Shayla for as long as he can remember. He couldn’t save her from Eric, but he is determined never to fail her again. There’s just one little thing she doesn’t know—Adam is a werewolf.
Shayla gets sucked into a world of werewolves and finds herself opening up to Adam’s love, but there is one alpha wolf who threatens to take it all away. If they are going to survive they’ll need to come together to fight for each other and their pack. Can Shayla find the strength to leave her past behind and fight for the future she wants, or will she hide and lose herself to the pain all over again?
A Word from the Author
I have a great love for paranormal romance, particularly when I am surprised with a new take on an old notion, like the werewolf. This love inspired “Loving Her Scars” where Shayla and Adam break down the barriers on stereotypical werewolves. Shayla’s past adds another layer to the story. I was able to incorporate a little of my own experiences overcoming the mental repercussions of abuse to her character. The scar on her face is only a small reflection of the scars that weigh down her mind and her heart. It is a big hurdle for anyone to overcome, and one that Shayla must see her way through while fighting to survive in a new world full of werewolves and magic. Adam’s love for her helps her see the way, but he too must overcome his own hurdles—his need to protect her at all costs—if Shayla is to become the strong person she was meant to be.
