Contains sexual situations

After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn't changed since he was carted off to juvie all those years ago. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn't even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can distance erase the memories that haunt him? Trapped in the prison of his own mind Jordan wonders if the pain of living will ever subside?

Torrey Delaney is new in town and certainly doesn't behave in a way the locals believe a preacher's daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex is the talk of the town. Add that to her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman, and the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter's path.

As friendship forms, is it possible for two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan's demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey's walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, will they find their place in the world? Can they struggle against the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?



     “What are you doing here?”
     I didn’t need to look up to know who was speaking—I recognized her voice. It wasn’t that hard. Apart from my family and the Rev, no one else spoke to me—unless it was to yell curses.
     I didn’t want to look at her, even though she was fucking beautiful, so I mumbled an answer.
     “What? You work for my mom?”
     That did make me look up. I thought she knew. Wasn’t that why she gave me the coffee? Because she knew who I was—the local charity case.
     I made a mistake when I met her eyes. I was immediately caught in her intense gaze.
     “I thought you knew.”
     “Nope, not till now. So you’re what, like a handyman?”
     I nodded, unable to speak.
     “Oh, okay.”
     I couldn’t help my eyes drifting up across her body as she spoke. I guessed she must have just woken up because her hair was all tangled and she looked like she was wearing what she’d slept in. She held a mug of coffee in her hands and the smell of those beans had my nose quivering like a coon dog. But then she crossed her legs, and my eyes were drawn to the sexy boy shorts she was wearing and tight tank top showcasing the most fan-fuck-tastic tits that...
     “My eyes are up here, jerk-off!” she snapped.
     I felt the heat rising in my cheeks and dropped my eyes to the ground once more. I picked up the handles of the wheelbarrow and headed toward the back of the yard.
     Stupid stupid stupid.


**About the Author**
I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn't think I could write a sex scene.
Turns out I can!

My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.

My husband doesn't read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I've finished writing their books. That's why you'll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won't be quiet.

Readers can find bonus chapters for several of my books on my website.
