TATTERED ~ UPCOMING RELEASE ~ July 17

I’m not a perfect man. Who of us can claim that? But for those of you who might think I’m a cheater, a liar, an abuser, you don’t know what you’re talking about. There’s more to my story than you realize.
You’ve heard Miranda’s story. Now it’s time you heard mine.
—Mason

Because of the decisions I’ve made, lives have been forever changed. I didn’t step into those choices lightly. But I feel free now. I don’t know what’s going to happen on the next step of my journey, but I know I’ve risen out of the ashes and I’m ready to face the world. I hope you’ll share the journey with me. I hope you’ll understand . . .
—Miranda

I might seem cold and unfeeling, but you have no idea what my story is. Maybe it’s time you find out . . .
— Kaden

LOVERS LIKE US ~ PRE-ORDER COMING MAY 22!

The only woman he’s ever trusted is about to betray him…

Luke Donovan is the irresistible bad boy every woman wants, and no woman can catch. Long term? Marriage? Children? No thanks, not interested. Until he meets Helena Montrey. There’s something about her reserved manner and fresh-faced beauty that pulls him in, obliterates past notions of love and relationships and makes him wantto commit—to her. Damn but he’s finally fallen in love! Gone are the bad-boy ways and reckless wandering, replaced with professions of forever and a vow to become respectable. It’s time to face up to past mistakes. Returning to his hometown of Reunion Gap and the family he deserted is the first step. Besides, Luke wants his family to meet Helena; the woman who changed his life.

Too bad he doesn’t know she’s not who she says she is.

After her fiancé’s betrayal makes her question her ability to tell an honest man from a liar, Helena Montrey shies away from men. Then she meets Luke Donovan.

But her brain forces her to wait until she’s sure the former bad boy with an admitted penchant for the open roads and constant change, is in this for keeps.

When the couple arrives in Reunion Gap, the Donovans are waiting for them with a lot of questions, and a ton of concerns. How is it that a woman they’ve never heard of ends up with a man who’s vowed he’ll never be tied down? Who’s the woman? What’s her back story? And more importantly, what if anything is she hiding? The truth will come out as it always does, and then Luke will have to decide if he loves Helena enough to forgive her and give her a second chance or if he really ismeant to wander the open roads—alone—for the rest of his days.

Don’t worry, the Donovans aren’t going to stand by and watch this heartbreak happen without getting involved. After all, what’s family for, if not to get involved? Stay tuned!
