"I'm a rule follower, for the most part." - Interview with @authorjmmadden

A Needful Heart by JM Madden
Genre: contemporary romance
Buy on Amazon 

Matt Calvin has watched Gina’s beautiful shape sway up and down the doctor's office hallway once a month for four long years. It’s time to do something about this fascination he has with her. Matt's not relationship material, but he doesn’t expect it to get that far. He just wants to talk to her, and put himself out of his misery once and for all. Things never go as planned, though, and when fantasy crashes and burns into reality, Gina pays the price.
Gina doesn’t blame Matt for her injury, but she is appreciative when he steps into her crazy life to help out. Proximity fires the sudden attraction between them and Gina can’t believe she’s overlooked the sexy carpenter for this long. Tattooed and intimidating, he’s not the type she's normally drawn to, but something about him tugs at her heartstrings.
When an explosive situation develops and they have to save a little boy, Matt loses control of his tightly held emotions. Though his heart aches, Matt walks away, both for Gina’s safety and his own sanity. It’s up to Gina to convince him love can heal any heartache.


Terminally addicted to romances, thanks to finding her aunt's stash of 'Harlequin Presents' years ago during a sleepover, J.M. Madden loves any and all good love stories. Most particularly her own. She has two beautiful children and a husband who always keeps her on her toes.

J.M. was a Deputy Sheriff in Ohio for nine years, until hubby moved the clan to Kentucky. When not chasing the family around, she's at the computer, reading and writing, trying to perfect her craft. She occasionally takes breaks to feed her animal horde, and is trying to control her office-supply addiction, but both tasks are uphill battles. Happily, she is pursuing writing full-time. She has several projects in the works and loves to hear from readers.

Tell us 5 random things about you the person, not the author

1) I used to work at Longaberger Basket Company, which is where I met my husband. You've probably seen the great big basket office building somewhere.
2) I have a secret desire to breed emus and miniature horses. I've had the horses before, but never the emus.
3) I rescue starving horses, feed them too much and never let them go.
4) I'm a rule follower, for the most part. If I see somebody breaking the law or being stupid, I'll call them on it. To my husband and family's embarrassment.
5) I've never met an office-supply I haven't loved and found a need for.
