More from Cori
Hearts Under Fire is a historical romance with a contemporary twist. The historical plotline was inspired by the first-hand accounts provided by my grandparents on both sides of the family. Hearts Under Fire differs in that it brings in a contemporary twist and it explores the idea of the parallels between the love story in 1941 and the contemporary love story from present day.
To celebrate her tour, Cori is giving away the grand prize packge that includes a signed copy of the book, a lip balm, T-shirt and a Journal!!
