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?
Due to scenes of a sexual nature, not recommended for under 18.
About the Author
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.

I'm aware that you are a British novelist but most of your books are in an American voice. Was that difficult and how did you overcome it?
When I’m reading your novels I find that you are so descriptive in your locale that I feel like I’m really there. Have you actually traveled to all these places?
I see on the social networks how readers see Sebastian and Daniel. I would love to know how you picture them. Have you worked from a muse, and if so, give me pictures please!
Are you prophetic? On re-reading the prologue of Exposure, and the story that follows it, that question has popped into my mind. Your story seems so, up to date with all the current news we are reading.
Do you find your, non English MMCs easier characters to write for?
If you could make one of your books available as a talking book, which one would choose? And who would you like as the reader. ? That's two questions, I know:-).

Do you HEAR the characters in your head when writing?
Do you let them guide the story, or do you write how you WANT it to happen?
Why did you decide to do 50 shades fan fic?
Do you meet people and discover a CHARACTER in them?
If one of your books could be a movie, which one would you pick and why?
When writing some of the more difficult scenes, do you get as emotional as we do when we read it? For example, Seb’s scene when he got hurt?
Do you get nervous or anxious right before one of your books release?
Does it bother you if you get a negative review?
What has surprised you and upset you the most about your success so far?
I get upset when people do mean stuff, like give me a one-star review, even before my book has been published and I know for a fact that they haven’t read it. Why would anyone do that? I don’t understand.
What made you decide to go with independent publishing?
How long did you write before you were first published?
What advice would you offer to aspiring writers?
Those familiar with your FSoG FF know that you are very capable (better even than ELJ I'd say) of writing a great story of the billionaire-in-the-making (including the ‘behind the scenes’ of making his fortune – something totally overlooked and almost never mentioned in the romance / erotica books) – yet your original characters are usually sort of ‘your neighbourly every day’ persons (at least on the surface). Have you ever thought of writing your own story about a ‘flamboyant’ character such as a billionaire, an artist or maybe an eccentric aristocrat?
Oh, and the book I’m working on now At Your Beck & Call, the main character, Hallen, is an inspiring artist as well as an escort.
