James Sterling doesn’t know the first thing about After Twelve, but he’s heard the rumors—and if Estlyn can take down a district attorney in grand fashion—well, that’s exactly the type of service he’s looking for. 

The way James reaches out to Estlyn sets off alarm bells, but she’s strapped for cash, so she agrees to a meeting. At first, it sounds like the perfect After Twelve case, and there’s something magnetic about James that Estlyn feels instantly—but the means to his end are so deplorable Estlyn can’t even touch the case. The only problem is that James isn’t the type of guy to take no for an answer—and those closest to her may pay the price.

Dark and seductive, If He’s Watching is the second book in the thrilling new adult series After Twelve by author Laney Wylde. Perfect for fans of television shows like Revenge, Scandal, and Veronica Mars, the After Twelve Series is a gritty social-issue drama that delivers steamy romance, intrigue, and the most bittersweet revenge plots. Estlyn’s determination to right every wrong is sure to quench your thirst for justice, yet leave you wanting more.

About the author

Growing up with poor reading comprehension, Laney Wylde avoided books at all costs. But after reading Francine River’s Redeeming Love for the first time in high school, she fell in love with literature. It was then she realized broken anti-heroines and impossible love stories were the stuff of heart-wrenching, binge-worthy novels.

Afraid her slow reading pace and lack of writing skill would inhibit her from becoming a successful English major, Laney pursued her B.S. in Mathematics from Biola University, graduating in 2014.

Laney gathered the courage to write honestly and diligently in 2017, producing Never Touched, a passion project that sheds light on the uphill battle that is healing from sexual abuse.

She lives in Southern California with her dashing husband and precocious little boy. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-indent: 28.8px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'}

If She Were Blind is the first book in the engaging New Adult series After Twelve by author Laney Wylde. Perfect for fans of television shows like Revenge, Scandal, and Veronica Mars, the After Twelve Series is a gritty social-issue drama that delivers steamy romance, intrigue, and the most bittersweet revenge plots. Estlyn's determination to right every wrong is sure to quench your thirst for justice, yet leave you wanting more.

Not everyone can get justice the traditional way—that’s where Estlyn Collins comes in. A young lawyer in Santa Monica, her "legal" service, After Twelve, works outside the courtroom to tip the scales when the justice system has failed.

For a price.

Thanks to her powerful underground network, Estlyn's success rate is stellar, and her inbox stays filled with inquires from the desperate and vengeful. But when one of those names is a ghost from her past seeking vengeance against her, she’s shaken to her core. Off balance and scared to be alone, she makes an impulsive move for a guy. He’s a complication she doesn’t have time for, but it turns out he may also be an unlikely—if unwitting—asset.

Treading the rapidly thinning line between personal and professional, Estlyn pursues her target while outrunning the one on her own back—only to find she may be running into a lot more than she bargained for.

If She Were Blind is a current award finalist for the 2018 Romance Writers of America Contest, winners announced in November 2018.

“Laney Wylde may just be a magician with her ability to conjure the perfect scenarios and the ways out that no one else can see.” —My Blissful Books Blog

"With plenty of believable drama, laugh out loud moments, and sexy situations and characters, If She Were Blind is well worthy of five out of five stars and my anxious hands long for its sequel." ~Emily Shore - Author of The Aviary

"If She Were Blind is a genre defying page turner. If She Were Blind feels like a suspense, mystery, and romance novel all mashed up into one." ~Reviewer

"If She Were Blind is the first in the new After Twelve series by author Laney Wylde, and it begs the question, what do you do when justice fails you, especially after what could be the worst moment of your life. The answer - if you can manage it, you hire After Twelve and let Estlyn issue her own brand of well-deserved justice." ~Melanie’s Muses

"I am so addicted to these characters. Estlyn is strong and totally a badass. And Cal is swoon worthy. I fell for him right away." ~Rabid Readers Book Blog
