Introducing Erica Timberly from Lyrical Embrace, by Amber Daulton @amberdaulton1 #RLFblog #RomanticSuspenseLet’s meet Erica Timberly from Lyrical Embrace, a Romantic Suspense, by Amber Daulton. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about the story your author wrote.

Lyrical Embrace by Amber Daulton

Genre Romantic Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Out-of-work violinist Erica Timberly decides enough is enough. She leaves her abusive boyfriend and flees the big city, but then her car breaks down in the middle of the night. Though wary of men, she accepts help from Dylan Haynes, a stranger driving by on the road, and soon recognizes him as the sexy former drummer of her favorite indie rock band. Maybe, just maybe, her run of bad luck is finally turning around.
Music teacher Dylan Haynes knows Erica is in trouble, and her black eye is only the first clue. The stubborn yet vulnerable woman needs a friend, but he’s determined to give her everything she deserves.
Will Erica listen to the music in her heart and trust Dylan, or will her past always threaten her future?

Introducing Erica Timberly

Please tell me about yourself.

Age: 23
Gender: Female
Birthplace: New Jersey
Profession: Violinist
Ethnicity: Caucasian
What do you look like?
I have long blonde hair and green eyes. I’m five-feet-eight and a little chunky. My hips are too round for my liking, and though I’m self-conscious about it, I’m happy with my body for the most part.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Dylan Haynes. He was my rock star dream guy for years. After we finally met and started dating, I realized he was so much more beneath the arrogant swagger and very different from my fantasy.
Please tell us about your education.
I have an associate’s degree in Classical Music from a community college in New York City. I wanted to continue my education, but life got in the way. Maybe I’ll return to school in the future.
Are any of your skills a source of pride or embarrassment, and if so, which ones and why?
I play the violin, cello, and other strings. My mother taught me to play the violin when I was younger, but then I received lessons as a teenager. I’m very proud of my musical accomplishments.
Are you close to family?
My dad and I butted heads a lot when I was teen. He and my mom divorced when I was younger, and then Mom died a few years later. After that, I had to live with Dad and his new wife Mindy, the woman he cheated on my mom with. They have two sons together, but the boys are over ten years younger than me, so we were never close. Even though I still resent my dad for breaking up my parents’ marriage, I’ve opened the doors for reconciliation, mostly at Dylan’s urging.
What past event causes you the most fear?
It’s hard to talk about, but I spent a year in a physically abusive relationship with my ex-boyfriend, Phil. At first, he was sweet and charming. We dated for about a year, and though he kept secrets, I was too foolish and shy to confront him about it. Then I moved in with him, and everything changed. He wanted me to wear my hair differently, wear different clothes, and to quit my job. When I refused, he would hit me and call me names. That was the worse year of my life, and I knew it would only get worse as time went on. I had to break away. To do so, I left everything behind, jumped in my car, and hit the road. I wound up in Vermont and made a fresh start, but I was always worried Phil would find me, and he eventually did. Luckily, Dylan and I survived that ordeal.
What would you like people who hear your story to know?
I’m just a normal, average woman—nothing special about me in that regard—but there are countless women just like me in the world. They’re involved in toxic relationships with people claiming to love them, and they often feel trapped or believe they don’t deserve anything better in their lives. I hope readers who have experienced any type of abuse either in the past or right now will find some hope and encouragement from my story. Everyone deserves a happy ending and a chance to heal, whether that means breaking free from a dangerous cycle of wrong choices, reuniting with loved ones, or moving on from past hurts. You may have a bumpy road ahead, but all you can do is try.

A week into the job, the neighborhood’s very popular drug dealer falls to his death a few feet from the table I’m serving. The cops say suicide, but the hot guitar player in the house band and I suspect foul play, and I intend to prove it. We dig deeper, grow closer, and make a shocking discovery. We know the murderer.
