New Release—Flight of Passion

Date: 12th May 2017, Posted by mollie

Flight of passion and a change of season…

change of season

Hello from New Zealand!

Happy May! It’s gorgeous Autumn here in the Southern Hemisphere and lucky you if you live on top of the world to be enjoying beautiful spring and heading into summer. I adore these transformational changes of seasons. The old makes way for the new and is always accompanied by a sweeping breath of fresh air.

So it’s not a surprise that with all this invigorating energy writing my new book has been a lot of fun! I flew into Flight of Passion with joy and love—and incredible productivity. And it has paid off! I’ve been blessed by some outstanding help from advanced readers and amazed by the incredible feedback.

Flight of Passion is a rapturous tale of beauty, obsession and the transformational power of unconditional love. Here’s a little bit more about my new release:

Devastatingly handsome Oliver Hart is used to getting what he wants. Single, thirty-five and a committed bachelor, he plays by his own rules. On a personal quest to catch a rare, elusive and very valuable butterfly, he’s unwittingly distracted by a former flame, Ruby Diaz—a woman who callously abandoned him eight years earlier.

Deciding he wants to reclaim the beauty as his own, in his mind, it’s as good as done.

But Ruby is not his for the taking. Promised to the son of a wealthy landowner, she refuses to succumb to his charms. On a quest to save her family’s land, Ruby knows she must put duty first, and silence the passionate stirrings of her heart. But Oliver doesn’t make things easy for her. He’s not taking no for an answer.

Risking everything to help the woman he loves to gain her freedom, Oliver entangles himself in an emotional net that alters his life forever. Sacrificing his own selfish pursuit to help Ruby, he realizes that you may be able to own something, but you can never own someone—especially the women you love.

Have you ever wanted to be with someone who sent your heart soaring but threatens your sense of security? Someone who lifts you clear out of the water, but you’re not sure will be around to catch you when you fall head over heels in love? Or do you know what it’s like to sacrifice your own needs to put others first? Then you’ll love this heart-warming romance. 

This is a standalone clean & wholesome romance novel. It’s also Book One in my new True Love series. It contains a guaranteed HEA and a tale of romance that will capture your heart. As an added gift, it also includes the first chapter of Mollie Mathews’ prior novel The Italian Billionaire’s Scandalous Marriage and a sneak peek into Claimed by the Sheikh, absolutely FREE!

Here are some more of the 5-star reviews:

“Fast paced, heart-wrenching, completely unexpected twists, excellent storyline, and a hell of a good read.”

“This book is a carefully crafted, truly original story. Mollie’s wonderfully descriptive narrative paints a picture in which it is easy to lose oneself. A touching and heart-warming book, well worth a read.”

“I fell in love with Ruby and Oliver, they are so good for each other, but both are so filled with garbage that their families filled them with, that they can’t see what’s in front of them. And when they finally realize that diamonds don’t have a hold to what they had, they are about to lose it. The butterflies remind me of how ethereal life is and it is up to us to not waste it, but live the fullest and best we can.”

“If you like a romance of the Romeo and Juliet ‘starcrossed’ lovers kind, get this book. Mollie spins a lovely tale set in exotic climes and lifts us out of our own reality while we travel a twisting journey with Oliver and Ruby.”


Here’s some more evidence that in the end love and joy always win!  At the time of writing this newsletter Flight of Passion is #1 in two categories for contemporary romance. No easy feat with so much competition.

The night prior to waking to this beautiful news I promised to give myself a break from the computer. But when I woke up I had a strong hunch….and I was rewarded! I never expected in my wildest dreams to get #1 in both categories! But I didn’t do it alone!  So many people have helped me including the fabulous Beta and Advance readers who loved this book and have written glowing 5-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

Oh my gosh! Look how beautiful the cover for the print edition is.

When I first saw it, it took my breath away. 

Flight of passion is a beautiful heart-warming, clean romance—no swearing, no sex…just love, with all the hurdles you have to overcome.

J.K. Rowling is right when she says, “In the end, love wins, we know it does.” You’ll learn how Ruby and Oliver, my second chance lovers, win their HEA in the end.



“Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves.” ~ Drew Barrymore

“Metamorphosis surely isn’t a pleasant experience for the caterpillar, yet it results in the transcendent beauty of the butterfly.” ~ Anon

Mollie –

It’s a beautiful book. You should be very proud of being able to write it. I read a lot of books— lately, it’s been about one a day, and you have a different way of writing. When you read it you can feel the passion. You put your all into it. You’re not writing to get it done but, to let us know the beautiful story you have in you.
