"Love isn't always pretty and rich, sometimes it's earthy and hard-won."CQuinn, review of Breaking the Rules


Meet the men and women who populate the world of Liz Durano’s A Different Kind of Love series. Mainly set in Taos, New Mexico with quick forays to New York City, this series has been described as honest and realistic, heart-wrenching at times, and emotional.

Panel 1

Every Breath

A Valentine’s Day Slice-of-Life Novella

For the last twelve years, Navajo environmental protection scientist Benny Turner has always managed to surprise his long-time love (and romantic cynic) Sarah Drexel on Valentine’s Day. But when a toxic waste spill on tribal land requires him to travel out of state, for the first time since they’ve been together, they’ll have to spend Valentine’s Day apart.

But Benny has never been one to give up so easily. Determined to give Sarah a day she’ll never forget, he’ll move mountains to get to her if he has to… or even better, employ the help of friends and family to help him pull off his most ambitious plan yet.

Panel 2

The Replacement Fiancé

The engagement may be fake…
But the emotions just got real.

After learning that her ex-fiancé will be spending the holidays next door to her parents’ home, the last thing florist Mariah Peters wants is for him to see that she’s still single two years after they called off their wedding. And so she comes up with the perfect lie… that she’s engaged.

Too bad the man she hired to pretend to be her fiancé is grounded on the other side of the country and can’t make it in time.

Enter friend Logan Garrison who volunteers to be the replacement. After all, that’s what friends are for, right?

But that’s before a practice kiss changes everything…

Panel 3



Single mother Sam Martin could use a break.

With an ex-husband who won’t take no for an answer and a past that continues to haunt her every move, she watches her dreams fade away, one brush stroke at a time.

But when she runs into community doctor Erik Maystrom and his widowed sister, Olivia, Sam discovers a whole new world filled with possibilities–even true love. It’s a place where she and her young son can live without fear or limitations.

And as one opportunity after another opens up for Sam, will she welcome them with open arms or let the pain from her past take over only because it’s the only thing she’s ever known?


“Finding Sam is a fairytale for grown ups. Sam, the lead character, is fresh from a wicked divorce and a lifetime of poison apples. The Sam of old and the Sam she longs to be are in a constant battle of wills and its bitterness leaves her with lingering doubts and mistrust. Of course, no fairytale is complete without a Prince Charming. Hers arrives in the form of Erik. He is mostly honest and mostly kind but unfortunately, this truth does not set her free…Throughout you’ll find yourself rooting for this damsel and will quickly come to the realization she must be her own hero and rescue herself, because who doesn’t want a happily ever? Or as happy as possible for as long as possible.”
