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