Release Date: June 13, 2014
Leaving an abusive life behind is not a crime.
Katarina Roberts’ only goal is to get the hell out of Belmont, and the further away, the better. After living with an abusive mother most of her life, her brother Drew, part of the town's notorious Knight Crime family, is doing everything he can to help her attend school at UCLA.
Cole Knight is being groomed to take over the Knight family business. A lethal combination of sexy and dangerous, he has no interest in a relationship... until he meets Kat. Cole wants Kat, and will stop at nothing to have her and keep her, and make her part of the ‘family’.
Kat and Cole have an explosive connection from the first moment they lay eyes on one another.
Now, Kat faces the hardest choice of her life… Cole or UCLA? Cole would mean dealing with everything that comes from being a "Knight." A world where you are constantly worrying about your loved ones being hurt or possibly worse. But loving him makes it seem worth it. Or does she stick with the plan to get as far away from Belmont as possible? Will she give up her dreams of UCLA for Cole?
“I want to take you and beat your ass so you can’t sit for a week”
I am not sure whether to be pissed or turned on. Something about the way Cole’s voice is low and gravely makes me lean toward being turned on. My body melts as the words pour over me, rolling through my mind. Images of him spanking my bare ass make me grow damp. I pause briefly but he has his hand on my arm causing me to stumble a bit as he keeps going. His gaze penetrates through me in that moment he knows he has turned me on.
I have been writing as far back as i can remember. I spent most of my teen years writing short stories that my friends were always begging for more for me it was nothing more than a hobby and a way to entertain myself even though I did manage to get published in the school paper a couple times.
I met and married my very own Alpha male 19 years ago and we have a 18 year old daughter, and two sons ages 15 and 14. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats. There is never a dull moment around my house. We live on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Alabama. We are blessed to have a home on the river and to have the beach just 20 minutes away.
Over the years I wrote a few short stories in between raising my babies but it wasn’t until 2012 I decided I needed to pursue my dream of writing a full novel. It took awhile but in January of 2014 my debut novel was self published. There is always a story in my head and characters talking to me. I enjoy being able to share my characters with others.
