"A man with a damaged soul fell in love with a ballerina with a broken body."
When Neal Medwin glimpses Mina Automne for the first time, he's a man whose soul is darkened with memories of a painful past, whereas Mina is a vibrant, strong, young woman. She's a determined ballerina who's carefully planning and painting her life.
Neal steps into her existence and threatens to shatter Mina's plans with an impossible request.
Mina can't help the fragile man who's invading her home, even though their parents used to be close friends and she knows of Neal's hurtful background. She allows him to linger within her lovely and artistic world, however, hoping he might find some peace and solace.
Slowly, their conflict turns into friendship, and eventually into love, until a terrible discovery ruins Mina's projects and forces her to let go of all her dreams, and of her sweet, damaged man.
Neal is unable to fight for Mina and for the unripe love they share, because he's not ready to leave his past behind. He's not strong enough – not yet.

(Ages 18+)

Publisher's Note: This stand-alone novel is a spin-off of Petra March's award winning series, A Touch of Cinnamon.

Praise for A Different Kind of Lovely:

"The prose is masterful and completely immerses the reader in the story. Mina and Neal are not perfect, but delightfully human characters that the reader enjoys getting to know." -InD'tale Magazine (September 2017 Issue)

"I love Mina and Neal; their story is beautiful and tragic at the same time, they learn to love each other and live a new life, together." -Inks and Scratches:Magazine (September 2017 Issue)

"Petra March writes with a lot of wisdom and her story is filled with emotion. The characters are genuinely flawed and readers can easily connect with what is human in them. There is a fine sense of the tragic woven into the fabric of this story that many readers will connect with, and I particularly loved the way the author explores the workings of the hearts of her characters." -Readers' Favorite
