About His Touch:

pattyblount-300dpi-300x450Financial wiz Kara Larsen hates asking anyone for help…especially the paramedic who saves her baby girl. HIS TOUCH (TULE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2015)

Being a single mom is a lot harder than managing wealth and assets.When a surly paramedic finds Kara Larsen’s lost toddler in a crowded department story only to berate her for failing to mind her child, Kara is embarrassed and relieved she’ll never have to deal with that jerk again. But when baby Nadia has trouble breathing one night, Kara’s frantic 911 call brings the same jerk right to her door.

Scarred by tragedy even he couldn’t prevent, NYFD paramedic Reid Bennett has a compulsion to help frantic parents. After the way he over-reacted to Kara Larsen, she wants nothing to do with him and he can’t blame her. But isn’t it odd how he keeps running into her all over the city?

When Kara bumps into Reid for the third time in a week, she can’t help but wonder if the mom she lost in 2001 is playing matchmaker again, just like she’d done for her sister. Kara and Reid form a cautious friendship, with him quickly becoming baby Nadia’s favorite person. But Reid has no interest in long-term commitment so when her daughter’s father calls out of the blue with an urgent request, Kara agrees to see him. Now, Reid has to do some triage if he hopes to keep his girls.
