Do Opposites Attract?

Lyn Cote here–

My newest book, Only Her Heart, starts a series titled: “Opposites Attract.” So that kicks off this month’s question — Do you think that’s true?

In Only Her Heart, Annie and Jack are true opposites. Here’s the tagline for the book.

What will it take for a clueless computer genius to notice the loving woman at the desk beside him?

And the tagline for the series:

Four unlikely couples find opposites do attract even in the shadow of mystery–

Do you know a couple that are obviously in this category–opposites?

I do. In fact, my husband and I are the prototypes for the well-organized take-charge woman of words and the quiet man who thinks in numbers. No one would have put us together, and we have celebrated over thirty years together.


Was it true of you and your husband or sweetheart or did it go very wrong?

Here’s the scoop on Only Her Heart, Clean and Wholesome Romance in the Shadow of Mystery.

What will it take for a clueless computer genius to notice the loving woman at the desk beside him?

Caring, hardworking, Annie Petrov’s about to quit the job she loves. Why? From day one she’s been in love with Jack Lasater, her computer-genius boss who–grasps intricate code and computer security but never understands people. Five years of being valued only as the executive assistant who makes his life easier is no longer enough for Annie. If she goes now, she can leave with her pride intact.

As she writes her letter of resignation, an unexpected call from Jack’s estranged, successful surgeon father upends Annie’s plan and Jack’s life. His dad’s multiple-facility Hope Medical network’s computers have been hacked. He needs Jack’s expertise to discover the hacker and prevent another intrusion. Jack wants nothing to do with his father, but Annie points out this should be a “bottom line” decision. And though she doesn’t say so, Jack needs to face his father. . So Jack grits his teeth and takes the job. Now she cannot leave, not when Jack needs her help to navigate the troubled waters between father and son.

After Jack cleans up the Hope mess and designs a new security system, the hacker steps up his attacks. Hope Medical fears he might target patient records. Someone could die. As Jack works to expose the hacker, the true reasons for the estrangement from his father will also be exposed. Is Jack ready for the truth and more importantly, ready to admit what he’s ignored all along–that he loves Annie? What will at last break through his emotional firewall?

    It was love at first sight for my first husband. We were together for 18 years and then things fell apart. We will always be there for one another because we are friends and respect one another.

    My husband tells the story that the first time he saw me he told his friend, ‘I’m going to marry that girl.’
    We’ve been married 38 years and we are opposite in so many ways-which makes us a complete unit of true love.
