The sound of the ocean, the crash of the waves as they kick up against the
sand and rocks—these are the only sounds Megan Greene wants to hear.
She wants to leave the rest of the world behind, and find some peace.
The offer of a private house on the beach, set in a small town in Maine, is
perfect. Time to think—to be by herself. It’s all she wants. It’s the escape
she needs. Until she stumbles across the painting that seems to echo her
own chaotic mindset. Until she meets the unfriendly artist behind the stormy
painting and discovers his secrets.
All Zachary Adams wants is to be left alone. His canvases, and the unending
scope of the ocean and sand, are his life. They direct him—fill his hours.
Bring him focus. Until she enters his life. She dredges up memories of the
past—the haunting images he has hidden for years; the fears he has never
shared. A story he keeps buried below the surface.
Can she make him see what he is missing? Can he trust her enough to
Together they embark on a journey where their pasts collide and threaten to
tear them apart. Will their fragile bond hold or wash away with the ebbing
Melanie’s Cast of Characters for Beneath the Scars…
Zachary Adams – Henry Cavill
His eyes are so expressive and he has that sense of ruggedness about him that reminds me of Zachary. There is something strong about his demeanor and when he smiles it is like the sun coming out. He was the perfect choice.
Megan Greene-Alexis Bledel
That pretty next door look, with a beautiful smile. Add a few freckles and brown contacts, she is exactly as I pictured Megan.
Jared Cameron …Ryan Gosling
Good looking and he knows it. He knows how to use it. I think he’d portray a great Jared with enough smarminess to give you the shivers.
Karen Harper … Anne Hathaway
Anne portrays that confident beauty Zach described. Sure of herself, outspoken and loyal. All traits I think she possesses.
I will talk about Beneath the Scars more on our podcast at the end of October but I will say this, Melanie did it again! So please make sure you listen into our podcast!
Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario
with her husband and four children. Nothing means more to her than her
friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works for the sporting
teams of a local university. Her (box) office job, while demanding, is
rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and somewhat challenged with all things
computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new
recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties and socialize,
and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always
the best part of any trip.
Melanie delights in writing a good romance story with some bumps along the
way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried
in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters
dictate their creative story lines to her even more inspired tales, for all to
