 An Open Heart Novel, Book 1
Published with City Owl Press
A new heart should mean new life, instead it’s a living nightmare.
Mishca Richardson’s life is at an all-time high after her heart transplant. With new boyfriend, Ryder, she has the perfect summer romance. Even the nightmares plaguing her sleep since her operation can’t dull her new dream world.

Yet, life starts to unravel when Mishca develops superhuman abilities. She does her best to hide them so as not to end up a science experiment in a lab, but she can’t ignore the strange instant attraction she experiences when she meets her university professor, Colin Read.

Torn between love and obsession, Mishca must unite her divided heart and decide between the two men. But when the truth about her weird powers comes to light, she’ll have a lot more to worry about than romance.


Reader’s Favorite:
“DIVIDED, the first novel in the Open Heart Series, will surprise you, make you sad, angry, frustrated and scared! What a wonderful mixture of various elements to draw from for this wonderful novel. Although it deals with fascinating fictional elements, some of the issues dealt with are very real. Being an African-American child raised by rich white parents, never feeling as if you belong, and being avoided by people because of your health issues are all very real social issues. Making friends after her surgery changes Mishca’s life, but the secrets that have yet to be discovered may very well tear her life to shreds. A truly wonderful read, and looking forward to more in this series! Well done, Sharon M Johnston!”
