New Release for Liza O’Connor!

I’d like to congratulate author Liza O’Connor (no relation, but an awesome author!) on her latest release ~ Angel of Mercy, a disturbing dark contemporary romance with a happy ending. 

About Liza ~ Liza O’Connor lives in Denville, NJ with her dog Jess. They hike in fabulous woods every day, rain or shine, sleet or snow. Having an adventurous nature, she learned to fly small Cessnas in NJ, hang-glide in New Zealand, kayak in Pennsylvania, ski in New York, scuba dive with great white sharks in Australia, dig up dinosaur bones in Montana, sky dive in Indiana, and raft a class four river in Tasmania. She’s an avid gardener, amateur photographer, and dabbler in watercolors and graphic arts. Yet through her entire life, her first love has and always will be writing novels.

Liza, what was the inspiration for this story? When I broke with the best guy I had ever loved, I first thought the solution was to find a new boyfriend. But once you find a guy that fits you really well, finding another one that you can even stand becomes a challenge.

I hired a dating service and went through about twenty guys in a few months. There was only one guy I really liked and he just disappeared without a reason or goodbye. And that’s when I gave up on men. Too much effort with negative results.

So, I gave Carla a similar moment: Steve can walk again, and he’s being a total jerk, stealing her money and running up her credit cards. So she goes out with Steve’s former doctor, only it didn’t go very well…


About Angel of Mercy

Carla Jones accidentally runs over and paralyzes a policeman. She ignores her lawyer’s advice and pleads guilty to the charges, and accepts the judge’s ruling ‘that she broke him, now she has to fix him.’ Trying very hard to ignore his outrageous and frequently hateful behavior, she takes the handsome officer into her home and dedicates her life to one goal: making him walk again. She never imagines the twists and turns her life and heart will take the day she brings him home.


It was almost 1:30 a.m. when Dr. Colgate pulled his Porsche into Carla’s driveway. He was in the middle of an intriguing—at least to him—story about a NY Jet Quarterback’s rotated disc that he had fixed, thus saving the man’s career for another five years.

When the story ended, she smiled and softly laughed, leaning towards him. “My hero.” She pecked him on his lips.

Before meeting Steve, she would have never been so forward. However, life with Steve had made her bolder with her expressions of affection, possibly because her expressions meant less now.

Whatever her motivation, Dr. Colgate liked it. He smiled and crushed her to him in a passionate kiss.

His clumsiness surprised her. God, compared to Steve, he was an absolute amateur. Instead of raising her desire, it had the exact opposite effect. Her only desire now was to escape the car and retreat inside her house—alone.

Finally, she managed to gently break the kiss. “I should get in.”

“My office doesn’t open until noon tomorrow, so I can stay over.”

If his kisses were bad, his lines were even worse. Maybe it wasn’t a line. Maybe it was just a simple statement of his expectations. Hell, he knew she’d had sex with a man she didn’t even like, just to help him walk. So why should she balk at having sex with a man who took her out on a date?

Just then, the porch light came on and Steve stepped out on the porch. He looked drunk and pissed.

“We’d better call it a night.” She hurried from his car, worried Colgate would follow her and cause trouble, but evidently, he had a healthy sense of self-preservation.

He pulled out and rolled down his window. “Next time,” he promised her, and then tore out so fast that a wind formed in his wake.
