Michelle Hill‘s new release, The Heart Swindler, Reclaim Your Heart and Stop Falling for Liars, Losers, and Lunatics hit #1 in categories of Christian Dating & Relationships and Dating, Relationships & Spirituality, and #2 in Women’s Inspirational Spirituality. The book also took top billing in seven New Release lists at its debut on November 16th.
The Heart Swindler is primarily geared toward newly divorced, newly widowed midlife women who are most vulnerable to relationship deception, whether narcissistic abuse, romance scams, or future fakers. Of course, relationship deception happens to women of all ages but predators prey most often on educated, vulnerable women.
The book highlights the real-life survival stories of several women who were once caught in the web of romance scammers and narcissistic abusers but who have found healing and the boldness to reclaim their heart and walk in their intrinsic worth. With raw vulnerability, women share their journeys in and out of the treacherous terrain of love. The Heroic Heartbeat Lessons at the end of each chapter detail what each woman learned from her experience and includes clear directives on what to look out for. Readers benefit from two book bonuses that provide additional educational resources for romantic fraud and practical, self-care strategies that women can implement to reclaim their hearts.
Hill never suspected that her personal experiences with romantic deception would be on stage for all the world to see. Having survived not one but two romantic deceptions; one many years ago for money and one more recently for emotional manipulation, Hill knows the heartache of being verbally and emotionally duped by a romantic betrayer. She understands the personality qualities scammers look for and what “red flag” traits women need to be aware of when they meet someone new. Most of all, the book helps women heal as they learn how to recreate their life after relationship deception.
Hill wants women to know they can reclaim their heart while finding healing and wholeness and she encourages them to walk in their intrinsic worth. Hill tells women, “Let’s link arms as we reclaim strength, renew trust, and embrace love in the wake of romantic heartache.”
In response to the success of the book at its debut, Hill shared, “I’m overwhelmed that so many bought this book because I believe that women will relate to and receive help from the stories and personal lessons. My passion is to guide women through the initial emotional trauma and then offer personal, private support to help them navigate their own healing journey.”
