Sheridan grew up in southern Ohio as the daughter of an artist and an opera-loving computer engineer. She never realized that most parents didn't convert their garage into an art studio that was outfitted with a potter's wheel, enameling supplies, a kiln, and every color of acrylic paint under the sun, nor did she realize it was unusual to be in the second grade and nailing shingles onto the roof of the new 2-car garage her dad had just built (complete with his very own workshop)! Sheridan fell in love with the written word, so much so that while she was away at summer camp, her dad covered the entire wall of her bedroom with floor to ceiling bookcases.

A clash of wills . . .

But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her.

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?
Note from the author: My books aren’t edgy or stomach-churning. If you’re looking for something dark and twisty, go elsewhere. If you’re looking for something to take your mind off the world for a while and leave you feeling a bit better about life, then this is the book for you!
* This is not a cliffhanger. Each book’s hero and heroine have their own complete romance and HEA (happily ever after). Characters from the books will reappear throughout the series, but they will be in supplementary roles.
** The romance scenes in this book are explicit, but not frequent.
