Coffee, chocolate and writing = a happy heart. I love a good ghost story and have a few real ones of my own to tell.
Secrets, everyone has them, right?
I have one, and I've been trying to keep it under wraps so my boss at the Public Relations Firm I work at doesn't find out.
At the firm, we're in the business of creating or repairing people's images, and having employees writing naughty romance books under pen names isn't healthy for my day job.
I've had a thing for my boss Sam ever since I started at the firm. He's the sexy bad-boy, the rogue, the pirate I've written into many of my books.
Lately, Sam seems to be making advances, but that couldn't be—right?
Wrong. When he invites me to sit on his lap, we end up having hot sex in his office. After our little tryst, a mysterious envelope is left on my car. My life begins to resemble one of my books and I find out that Sam has secrets of his own.
But when my life begins to unravel and Sam's past begins to invade my present, I know it's time to write a better ending to this difficult chapter, but will our story have a happy ever after? It all depends on whether the sexy rogue really can be redeemed by love.
Fate is cruel to those without a voice.
I was born Solveig, but my family called me Dark Raven because I was different and they considered me cursed, treating me as a servant. When the new Jarl found out they'd kept raiding spoils, he banished them from our settlement. They had planned on sneaking off in the spring, but everything changed and Jarl Calder brought me into his house. I gave him my heart and thought he returned my feelings, but he had other ideas. Again I found I was a servant and Calder was to marry a Jarl's daughter to unite the two powerful families. Galdi, another servant, said his new bride would make my life torture and I would have to find a way to leave.
The opportunity came when the Jarl was negotiating with the Picts for new lands. Galdi said the king would like me because I was dark and different and she suggested he give me as the extra piece of silver to sweeten the deal. And so I was to sail off, my heart broken, to a new land with people I knew nothing of. But fate can turn the sea into a road and once you take a step, you won't know where it ends unless you keep going.
