Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?

Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I've roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.

There's only one problem—I'm falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder.

My notes were supposed to be a one time thing. A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter's night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.

Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.

She's the girl next door.

He's my secret pen pal.

Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked...






Excerpt

How can you lose someone you’ve never met? The Letter Girl had careened into my life like a damn smash and grab pro and wormed her way into my heart before I knew what happened.
She was everything I’d ever wanted in a girl. Hot as hell. Smart and caring. The slow slide of the notes from X-rated to something more caught me off guard, but she became someone I could talk to. Someone I could share parts of myself that I didn’t share with other people. Even if she didn’t know everything about my past, she knew more than most.
No one wanted to be sexy pen pals with a former foster kid with almost no one in the whole world. Nah, that was for the college senior, soon to be pro athlete.
Don’t ever let anyone see things bother you; I learned that in foster home number four. If everything’s a joke, there’s nothing they can do to hurt you, but losing TLG when I thought I’d finally found someone who knew me for me and actually gave a shit? That hurt. It was an unexpected squeeze on my heart every so often that made it hard to breathe.
Jules slid her hand closer, herky-jerky like she was in a stop motion animation movie before it finally landed on top of mine with a gentle pat. “Is it really that important for you to find her?”
I shrugged. “Maybe not. She probably got tired of trying to figure out my fucking chicken scratch.” I forced out a laugh through the tightness in my chest.
“Once the season starts things will be crazy for you, right?”
“You’re right. I guess I’m fixating because not much else is going on.” No, this would always be a question I needed answered. Who is TLG and did all the things we’d written about mean as much to her as they meant to me?

Blurb

It began with betrayal.
And ended in murder.

She was never supposed to cross my path. 
She was never supposed to know about the currency of Secrets or the Oaths of Blood.

But like a thief in the night, she stole my soul even if she wasn’t mine to possess.

As a member of the Elite, I live by simple tenets. A gentleman above all. Private matters stay private. Secrets whispered are never revealed. Enemies and friends are of the same coin. And power is king.

My so called brothers killed my friend. I intend to make them pay.  And before it’s over, I’ll bend all the rules of morality, decency and legality. I will borrow and steal to set the scales right. But begging--begging, you can forget about.

My name is Ben Covington and I know my sins.

Release Date: January 31, 2020



Blurb

Drew
I hate the lies you tell.
For as long as I can remember, everything in my world has been fake. The happy nuclear family. The loving parents. The close father-son relationship. The respectable family business. All lies. I’ve had it with the pretense and the show, but I’m been trapped on a dizzying merry-go-round of deception, and I can’t get off.

So when she’s thrown unexpectedly into my path, and I discover she’s just another fake, I need to make her pay. Little do I know, the deceit runs deeper than I imagined, and nothing is as it seems.

Kik
I tell the lies I hate.
I hate the lies and the pretense, but if I ‘m going to achieve what I want in life, they’re a necessary evil. Truth is, I’ve mostly made peace with the idea. What I’m doing is a means to an end, and the end definitely justifies the means. Besides, it’s not forever—nothing ever is.

Everybody has to do what they have to do, right? I can live with that. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe. At least I can until he comes bursting into my life, and is determined to tear down everything I’ve worked so hard to build.

Trailer



Excerpt

“Kiss me again.”

She hesitated a moment, searching my face. I stared back, unblinking. If she was hoping to see anything other than pure naked desire, she was looking in the wrong place, as her expressive brown eyes met mine. The moments ticked by like a thousand eternities, and as much as I wanted to skip to the part where I got what I craved, I held my nerve and waited.

She blinked slowly, before rising onto her knees, leaning forward, and pressing her lips hesitantly to mine. Her kiss was whisper soft, and if it wasn’t for the fact that I could see her with my own eyes, and was touching her with my own hands—without even realizing it, I’d gripped her thighs, and was squeezing them gently—I could have believed I’d imagined it. As it was, with the way she was looking at me as she made up her mind, she seemed like a dream.

She reached out to grab the back of the couch, arms either side of my head, and kissed me like she meant it. I returned the favor, tilting my body a little so that I could push my lips up to hers, hard and fast. At the same time, I moved my hands from her thighs, and looped them around her neck, linking my fingers.

My sense of the world altered as the kiss intensified. As we licked, sucked, nibbled, and bit, every fiber of my body became attuned to hers. I allowed my heavy eyelids to fall closed, but even so, I saw her face in my mind’s eye. I could feel, smell, taste, and hear nothing... but her.We kissed until I was on the verge of losing my mind—the vision of Kik being gradually obscured by a black cloud of burning desire.

Just as I was trying to fathom how to maneuver her right where I wanted her without doing myself further damage, she did the honors, bracing herself on the back of the couch then lifting her butt, and lowering it again onto my waiting, straining dick. Sweet baby Jesus.

I tilted my hips even more, intensifying the pressure. I wanted her so bad, my dick threatened to tear a trail through my sweats as she ground hard against it in a slow circular motion. I unlocked my hands from around the back of her neck, and reached into my pants pocket. When I drew it back out, palm upturned, she pulled her lips away from mine to see what I was holding.She nodded toward the condom.

“I don’t even want to talk about the level of presumption here.” That made two of us.

“Me neither. I just want to fuck you like nothing else matters.”

Father Creighton and Smith Sinclair.
Two dangerous men inexplicably drawn to me.
One bound by a holy vow, the other by duty and honor.

One emphatically covets my soul.
The other, despite his regrets, desires my heart.
Each demands I surrender my body to his control.

A priest and a soldier.
A demon and a knight.
An eternity in darkness, or a lifetime of love and light.

In the end, I have only seconds to decide.

Author Bio


A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she's not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.
