Trish has been an avid fan of romance fiction since she "borrowed" a book from her mother's stash when she was just a teenanger (it was Hearts Aflame by Johanna Lindsey). She's been devouring all genres of romance ever since. She nursed a long time dream to write stories of her own and finally realized there was no time like the present. After completing and publishing her first book, Darkness Embraced, in early 2015 she has since completed Breakout and is currently working on a third.
A native Texan, Trish lives just outside Austin with her incredibly supportive husband and two incredibly spoiled dogs. Aside from romance fiction, her other loves include dogs, warm weather, wine, playing trivia, and spending too much time on social media.
A global pandemic has killed most of the world’s population. Alone, Monarch Winslow struggles to survive. An empty house, gas station food and the hope of reaching a refugee camp in Austin, Texas keep her alive. Then one night an injured man breaks into her house. A dangerously sexy man.
Monarch is wary but intrigued. Corbin claims he’s a mechanic and she can’t reach the camp without a working car. She needs his help. But he needs hers, too. As the days pass, they work together and a tenuous relationship turns to turbulent desire. But Corbin refuses to discuss his past and his secrets lie between them. Falling for a man she knows nothing about could endanger her life, as well as her heart.
Meantime, a hundred miles away, is safety, perhaps even surviving family. She hopes. But Monarch is no more sure of that than she is of Corbin...?
