The short story collection Hearts in Adversity: Trilogy of Love II (published by iUniverse) continues the Trilogy of Love series, Alfonso Moret’s compelling look at the different faces of love . These three short stories are filled with intrigue, excitement, and romance.

In “Infatuations,” a widower becomes obsessed with a woman he encounters by chance. He begins a romantic quest filled with flashbacks of his previous love, his beloved wife. The memory of those heartbreaking years, of his wife’s kidnapping and tragic death, return with a vengeance when the same kidnapper escapes from prison and becomes a leading suspect in a déjà vous occurrence.

A veteran detective investigates a slew of robberies with his new partner, an alluring female rookie detective, in “The Big Bust.” As the pair gathers evidence, they also ignite a deadly triangle of romance, jealousy and passion that grows worse when they discover the involvement of Cuban mobsters and Russian gangsters and hit-men.

“The Enchantment” follows three recovering addicts seeking redemption from their immature, immoral and emotional lives through witchcraft in Baja Mexico with three enticing witches.
