All Authors Blog Blitz Featuring Catharina Shields

Please Welcome Catharina Shields. Catharina is my featured guest for the All Authors Blog Blitz and I am happy to have her join us. 


Catharina, please tell us a little about yourself.

In heart and soul, I am an insufferable romantic. I’m also a coffee addict (switched from strong Italian Roast from Starbucks to Starbucks Dark Expresso Roast – yum!), lover of all things 80’s, Jane Austen fan(atic), supernatural buff, exotic goldfish keeper, prefer Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, and when I’m writing, spam musubi as a meal or steaming hot Pho. Oh, and telling a good romance story with lots of twists and turns.

Her new novel

“For Elise”


A Romance About the Deepest and Truest Love

ForElise(bc04fini) (20pct)

Just a year out of prison on a work-release program after serving twenty years hard time for killing a man, Reece T. Dubois, now thirty-nine, wants nothing more than to keep his nose clean and to live out the rest of his life in peace.

          Then he meets the beautiful and sensuous, Elise Beauchamp, the young wife of a friendly pastor who is nearly twice her age, and he falls hard for her.
He struggles with his inner demons, between allowing himself to love again or to do the moral and right thing and keep his distance, but he soon discovers it isn’t that easy.
Slowly but surely he discovers why the pastor had invited him to meet his beautiful wife at their home and finds himself quickly swept away in a torrent of passion, pain, betrayal, and for him, unchartered waters.
Elise Beauchamp, thirty-four, has always considered herself to be levelheaded and loyal. Although people consider her beautiful, she has never seen herself in such a way and she believes, with all her heart, in the sanctity of marriage. She knew this when she married her much older husband, Pastor Leonard Beauchamp, whom she loves with all of her heart.
Then one evening, her husband informs her that he is bringing a Work Release Inmate (WRI) for dinner and she is as surprised as she is curious, because her kind-hearted pastor husband had never done anything like that before. Little did she know that the decision to bring a WRI to their home would change her life forever.
Leo Beauchamp is the beloved pastor of the Lost Sheep of the Lord Assembly in Caddo Parish, and the pastor for the Caddo Parish Work Release House of Shreveport. There he meets the WRI Reece T. Dubois and finds the answer that could end his secret suffering, and what would set him on the toward personal redemption . . .
