Romance | eBook


The past is hot on her heels... On the run and out of options, a desperately defiant Ali Ross knows two things for sure... Her ugly past will eventually catch up to her. And when it does, she'll need a strong and loyal man to help her face the danger head on or risk losing everything. Including her life. The girl is hard on his heart... Looking for love and having no luck, former Army Ranger Sam Gleeson knows two things for sure... His beautiful new neighbor is under his skin, wreaking havoc on his hardened heart. And her sweetly mysterious allure is playing a captivating game with his head. Despite her secrets. Hiding from a violent ex-husband, Ali knows the law can't help her. The system failed, leaving her to fend for herself. Fearing her freedom and her life, she hatches a shamelessly impulsive plan that's as old as time. She's willing to do anything to ensure her safety, and that includes doing the sexy soldier next door. Seeking Sam's unknowing protection, she seduces him, finding refuge and reaffirmation in his capable arms. Unexpectedly bonded by their searing passion and intense chemistry, Ali's hidden agenda seals an unimaginable fate, but along with it blooms a love so true it could set her free in ways she had never intended. Sam knows there's more to Ali's story than she's telling him. Years spent as a sniper in the US Army taught him to feel deceit in his bones and now, as co-owner of Scorpio Securities, it's his business to know the details. To dig deep, expose all the facts and use them to his advantage. But he's blinded by Ali's fascinating beauty, his unrelenting desire for her, and the tempting promise of something real. Wanting a future based on trust and honesty, Sam ignores his honed instincts, only to find he's merely a pawn in her twisted game. One with deadly consequences.

My love for steamy romance began when I was in junior high. A friend and I came upon a dumpster of discarded paperbacks behind our small town's Ben Franklin store. The covers were missing and each book was torn in two, split right down the center of the spline, but I found that to be no obstacle as I scanned each page looking for any love or lust words—and curse words, too. It wasn't long before I was scouring the public library and our local discount store, devouring anything labeled romance. I said a tearfully grateful goodbye to Judy Bloom as Jackie Collins began ruling my world. I live with my high school sweetheart turned husband and our three, beloved DVR's, in the desert Southwest. Otherwise known as the surface of the sun during the summer months. My life long goals are to think before I speak, smile more and swear less, and actually weigh what my driver's license states I do. And I have been contemplating a hair color change for the last decade. I'm thinking red.
