Wishing for death while living through hell, Gabriella is rescued off the rocks of a Scottish loch at the lowest moment of her life by the hot, humorous Edward and the sexy, staid Liam. The two men nurse the despondent woman back to health while teaching her how to pick up the pieces of her life. Both are captivated by her and vie for her attention.
Friendships are formed and secrets revealed. One man will become her lover, while the other becomes her best friend. Together, they have a past they cannot change, a present they must live through, and a future yet to be discovered. However, every time things appear to settle down for the trio, fate deals another blow, testing their trust and faith in each other and the love they have created.
Gabriella discovers the beauty of Scotland and life anew as she learns that trust is a two-way street that can either strengthen bonds or destroy relationships. Will she accept all that she learns or continue to believe she is betraying the memories she ran from?
Fantastic read!! Loved it from start to finish. … The book was romantic, sad and funny. It made me laugh and cry. The story kept me intrigued and I just wanted to keep on reading as there was never a dull moment. I highly recommend reading this book.

Character Interview

Welcome to Romancing the Books and More, Gabriella. I understand you’re the heroine of Anne Marie Citro’s book UNDER HER WINGS.

1)     Please tell us about yourself.

I had the perfect life. I was married to my high school sweetheart. We had two beautiful little boys. I had my dream job, teaching families with special needs children about nutrition and how to cook within a budget. At work, I met an incredible group of women that became closer to me then blood born sisters. In one horrific minute, I lost everything. I couldn’t pick up the pieces of my life. I didn’t know how to fit into my life anymore. So, I ran; straight into the only two people who could put me together again.

2)     At your lowest point in life, what thoughts were going through your head when you were rescued by two hot men?

Honestly, I didn’t want to live. I couldn’t kill myself because of my old religious believes. If I had killed myself than I would not have gone to heaven. I was stuck in my own hell. Sexy or not, I just wanted to be left alone to suffer. Nobody understood what I was going through. I was so angry at the world and even now I still wonder what it would have been like to die that night on the rocks. I know now, that I was meant to save Liam as much as they saved me.

3)     What can you say about Edward? How about Liam?

When the world judges Edward, they do so without knowing the real man. People think they know him because he is a public figure. But they don’t know the thoughtful, sensitive, kind man he is. They also don’t know he is a jackass and the biggest pain in my butt!

Liam carries more guilt then anyone should. He takes the world on his shoulders and cares for everyone but himself. He is probably the proudest Scotsman I have ever met and wants you to love his homeland as much as he does. I love one like a brother and other I love with all my heart.

4)     What is your greatest fear?

To lose it all again. I have had it all before and I know how fragile life is. I lost my faith when I lost my family and I don’t think there is anyone alive who could save me again. My only hope now is that I die before my husband, children and hopefully grandchildren one day. It sounds morbid but I know my heart can’t survive that loss twice. I may have grown stronger over the last couple of years but I know I will never be that strong ever!

5)     If there’s one thing you can do over, what would it be?

I would not have taken my sons to the court house that day. If they had stayed with my parents then it would have been Marco and I that died. No parent should outlive their child. It’s just not natural. I play the “what if” game still to this day. What if I had stayed with my family instead of going back for my sweater? What if we had been five minutes earlier or five minutes later? What if the policeman didn’t lie? What if I go to sleep, will it all be a dream? What if I never met Edward and Liam?
