Cara Malone writes contemporary lesbian fiction with drama, depth, and plenty of heat, including the Amazon bestselling medical romance The Origins of Heartbreak and 2017 Rainbow Award Honorable Mention The Rules of Love. She can be found writing – and caffeinating – in coffee shops around Northeast Ohio, and when she’s not working, there’s a good chance she’s fixing up her 1950s ranch or curled up on the couch with her house rabbits, Ivan and Scout.

Max has never been in love. She knows exactly what it looks like–she’s spent years studying the phenomenon in other people, but her Asperger syndrome makes it too anxiety-provoking to attempt such a thing in her own life. That is, until she meets Ruby, who makes her want to give love one more shot.

“I love the two main characters with all my heart…
I rooted for them the entire way through.
A unique and delightful love story.”
– Judges panel, 2017 Rainbow Awards
