It's official: Monster (Impossible #1) will be released Friday, March 29! I am SO excited to share this story with y'all! Here's the blurb:
My life was irrevocably changed that night. The night I was taken. I saved a man’s life, but at what cost to
myself? Could I convince him to save me
Pediatrician Claudia Ellers is jerked out of her own safe, secluded
world and brought into one of danger and uncertainty on the night that she is
kidnapped by Bradley Smith. He forces
her to save the life of his best friend, Sean Reynolds, under threat of
death. But when her task is complete,
Sean decides that she can’t be allowed to leave; she knows too much. Claudia is resentful of her captors,
desperate to escape. But the more time
she spends trapped with Sean, the harder she finds it to cling to her hatred
for him. He is an enigma of a man, one
who is shockingly arrogant, sweetly contrite, and frighteningly aggressive by
turns. And the sexual tension between
them is scorching. The longer she
remains in his grip, the more confused she becomes about what she must do. Is her freedom worth betraying him?

So I wanted to share a few lines from Monster (Impossible #1) with you. I think they're pretty funny and show Claudia's strength of character, given that she can show such levity in her situation. I'd love to know what you think! xxx
softened as he met my eye. “Of
course. Sorry, I should have thought of
that.” He looked me up and down, again
taking in the fact that I wore his clothes.
The corner of his mouth quirked upward, as though he couldn’t help
it. I felt myself blush under his
scrutiny, again becoming aware of how his scent clung to the t-shirt I wore. “I guess you’ll be needing new clothes, too,”
he said after a moment.
Sure, I wanted to say snidely. I would
love an orange jumpsuit. Or maybe some
old-school black and white stripes.
Orange isn’t really my color.
But I held it
back. I really did want some fresh
clothes, and the way that Sean looked at me while I was wearing his made me
“Yeah,” I replied
instead, “that would be nice.” But it
didn’t feel nice. My stomach
twisted as I realized that getting a new wardrobe meant that I was definitely
staying here for a while. I felt like
Belle in Beauty and the Beast. I wouldn’t be surprised if the chest of drawers
turned anthropomorphic, bursting into song as it proffered me eighteenth-century
French dresses, telling me, “You’ll look ravishing in this one!”
I couldn’t suppress a small sigh, although I knew I should try to look
grateful in order to ingratiate myself with Sean, my own personal Beast. Only he was far, far sexier. I frowned at myself, resenting him for making
me feel this way. Why did he have to be
so goddamn hot?
Just wanted to let y'all know that I haven't gone all radio silence! I am happily working away on Monster (Impossible #1). I'm absolutely loving this book, and I hope you will too! It will be released at the back end of March. Keep an eye out here for an exact release date!
