About this ebook

Propositioning the Iron Wraiths’ money man seemed like a good idea at the time…

Diane Donner—recently divorced pillar of polite society—is craving danger. She’s tired of playing it safe and she knows just the sexy criminal motorcycle man to proposition for a good time. Problem is, she doesn’t actually know his name.

Jason “Repo” Doe never takes risks. So when the queen of local commerce walks into his club, looking to get risky and frisky, Jason knows the smartest thing to do is save himself a headache while saving the new divorcee from her worst impulses.

But then one thing leads to another, and the memory of just-one-night doesn’t feel like enough.

Theirs is a story with no future, because how can a dangerous criminal win (and keep) a queen?

‘Beard In Hiding’ is book #4.5 in the Winston Brothers series, is a full length contemporary romantic comedy about two lost souls in their 40s, and is a companion novel to the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pie series.

If you want to get the full immersive Green Valley world experience, I recommend reading ‘Truth or Beard,’ ‘Beard Science,’ ‘Engagement and Espionage,’ and ‘Marriage and Murder’ beforehand. ‘Beard In Hiding’ contains spoilers for these four books (in specific).

I am SO happy that Diane Donner wouldn’t leave Penny Reid alone. What a story! This had all the parts we, as readers, love to see. The background storyline. The story behind the twist in another book. There was some MC, there was romance, there was humour, there was HEAT and there was angst. This book evoked a whole host of emotions but ultimately it is a phenomenal surprise addition to the Winston Brothers/Solving for Pie series.

This is one of my favorite Penny Reid books. I had despised the character of Diane Donner in previous installments in the series, as she was odious. I loved seeing Diane’s highly entertaining journey of discovery and personal growth into a likable creature, she certainly took a direct route. As always, Ms. Reid’s writing provided a fun read that sparkled with clever wit, crisp and irreverent humor, heart-scalding insights, volcanic sensual heat, and oddly beguiling yet uncommonly quirky characters. I am completely enamored with her skills and adore her fresh and saucy style!

What a quick tasty treat from the talented mind of Penny Reid. As an avid fan and reader of all her stories, I always wondered about Repo and Diane. Well, Ms. Reid has given me and her readers the answer and more with this newest story. Repo and Diane are a true opposites attract story. But when you read them together, you can see how seamlessly they fit together. Diane smoothes Repo's rough edges. Repo lets Diane be the person she wants to be and doesn't try to fit her into any mold, like her previous relationships had. This was a delightful read, an expansion of Ms. Reid's Green Valley world and I for one was more than happy to read and visualize Diane and Repo's story in all its glory!
