Blurb for Her Protector

Since I’m sure you’re all curious to know what my first book is about, here’s the blurb:

Her Protector
Rating: Sensual
Available September 2006 from New Concepts Publishing

After escaping from an abusive relationship and arriving in her hometown of Lexington, Oklahoma, Tricia Stephens needs help in a big way to stay one step ahead of her ex-boyfriend. Fearful of police involvement and flat broke, she's still reluctant to accept help from Clint Owens, a man she had a disastrous and humiliating affair with eight years earlier. His sudden appearance and white-knight-in-shining-armor act doesn't impress her, even if he does have the full support of her friends.

The sight of bruises on Tricia's face is all Clint needs to feel justified in doing whatever is necessary to keep her safe. When she balks at accepting his help, he doesn't hesitate to use force as a method of persuasion. He's determined to protect her, even if she fights him every step of the way.

With each passing day Clint's supportive and caring attitude slowly weakens Tricia's resolve to keep him at a distance. Still, it's imperative she remembers that he's already proven himself to be untrustworthy and capable of betrayal. And she mustn't forget that domineering side of him that had shown itself recently--a side she'd never known existed. It certainly hadn't been in her plan to trade in one controlling man for another.

About Me

I figured my very first post on my new blog should be the 'let me tell you about myself' post. And since I've recently written an author’s bio for my publisher, well, heck, I’m just going to copy and paste it :)

Pamela Tyner was reading by the age of four and hasn't stopped since. As a child her family often worried that she spent too much time if such a thing were possible. By high school she was creating her own stories, although it wasn't until years later that she actually put them on paper and begin pursuing the dream of publication.

After spending fifteen years in the corporate world, she is now a stay-at-home mom/author who accepts the occasional job when the mood strikes or the bank account balance demands it.

Born and raised in the south, with the accent to prove it, she currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and two sons. Living in a home with three musicians--a drummer, a saxophonist, and a trumpeter--who love to play their music often and loud, she savors those quiet times when she can read and write without distraction.

Her first novel, Her Protector, will be released September 2006 from New Concepts Publishing.
