Preston Mitchell’s life as an undercover DEA agent has never allowed him to have a normal life. He’s never considered a relationship with a woman until he meets Avery Middleton.

To an outsider, Avery has it all...wealth, family connections and a great job. But things aren’t so great on the inside. She decides to take a chance and make a new start three thousand miles from home and steps right into the arms of hot and sexy Preston.

Unfortunately for both of them, Avery ends up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and is now running for her life. Fortunately, she has a gorgeous DEA agent protecting her. In the midst of all the chaos, they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. But Preston carries more than his share of mental baggage, courtesy of his job. Even so, Avery rocks Preston’s world because she is nothing like anyone he’s ever met and something extraordinary begins to happen between them. But can their love survive in this world, where danger, intrigue and deception lurk on every corner?

He pushed his body against me and I could feel every contour of him. “Avery, I wish it were that easy. I want to make you feel more than just good.  I want to give you something beyond what you've ever had before. I wanted us to wait until we were at that point where it actually means something and it's not just great sex. Am I even making sense here?”

“Yeah, you are.” I had to ask myself if he was for real.

“Am I out of date a little?”

“No, I think you’re being kind and considerate. Can I ask you something?”


All this time the water was running all over us. I reached over and turned it off. He smiled and opened the door and then handed me a towel.

“Does this mean you want to wait until we’re in love?”

He stopped what he was doing and turned and looked at me. His eyes were so awesome as their golden depths latched onto mine. Was it possible for someone’s eyes to reach into your heart and touch it, because I was pretty darn sure his just had? Oh hell, everything about this man was awesome. He could hop around like a silly rabbit on one foot and I’d say, “Oh, look at Preston, isn’t he just the coolest?” I seemed to be in a constant state of arousal around the man already.

“Yes, Avery, that’s exactly what I’m saying.”

My heart skipped a thousand beats. Until Preston, no one had ever thought enough of me to say something like that. Before I could even stop myself, I heard the words gush from my mouth, “Do you think you could ever love me Preston?”

“No, Avery, I don’t.”

My heart crashed to the floor.  Why had I even asked him that? How stupid was that of me?

Before I could think of anything to say, he asked, “Do you know why?” he asked.

“Why?” I didn’t really want to know now, so I’m not sure why that tiny word eked out of my mouth.

“Because Avery I don’t think, I know I could love you.”

I whipped my head toward him so fast, because I wanted to be positive I didn’t mistake what I heard. “You could?”

“Oh yeah Avery. Undoubtedly. I could love you with all of my heart and soul.”

“Really? Me?”

“Yes, you and only you.”

I beamed and kissed him lightly on the lips.

“Then I guess we’ll have to work on that, won’t we Preston?”

“I guess we will. But, you’re a little late because I already am,” he answered, giving me a     cheeky grin, as he pinched my butt.

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on
fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life.  So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase.  Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had ├╝ber quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head.  Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window.   She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial.

Boss:  Hello

A.M.:  Boss, is that you?

Boss:  Why yes, A. M., who else would be answering my phone?

A.M.:  Er... right.  Well, I'm calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate.

Boss:  Why ever would I want to do that?

A.M.:  Because I quit!

A.M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband.

A.M.:  Hi hubs, can you pick me up at Starbucks?

Hubs:  Sure... Having some car trouble?

A.M.:  Not at all.  I don't have a car to have trouble with because I just quit my job.

Hubs:  WHAT?!

A.M.:  It's time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist.

So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer! Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and the upcoming reEmergent) and Dark Waltz.
