Book #1 in the USA Today Bestselling Series 

New York's Finest
Blogging as *The Socialmedialite*
April 22
LADIES AND GENTS! I have an announcement!
You know that guy I featured on my blog a few months ago? The really, really hot Irish rugby player who plays the position of 'hooker' in the RLI (Rugby League International)? The one with the anger management issues, the body of a gladiator and the face of a movie star? The one with the questionable fashion choices leading me to ask whether he was the lovechild of a leprechaun and a hobbit? Ronan Fitzpatrick? Yeah, that guy. Well, I have a confession to make...

Annie Catrel, social media expert extraordinaire at Davidson & Croft Media and clandestine celebrity blogger, can make anyone shine in the court of public opinion. She is the Socialmedialite, anonymous creator of New York's Finest and the internet's darling. Virtual reality is Annie's forte, but actual reality? Not so much.

Ronan Fitzpatrick, aka the best hooker the world of rugby has seen in decades, despises the media--social or otherwise. The press has spun a web of lies depicting him as rugby's wild and reckless bad boy. Suspended from his team, Ronan has come to Manhattan to escape the drama, lay low, fly under the radar. Only, Ronan isn't easy to overlook, and he can't escape the notice of the Socialmedialite...

When Ronan is sent to Davidson & Croft Media to reshape his public image, he never expects to cross paths with shy but beautiful Annie, nor does he expect his fierce attraction to her. He couldn't be happier when her boss suggests pairing them together.
What lengths will Annie take to keep her virtual identity concealed? And what happens when the hooker discovers who the hermit really is?

The Hooker and the Hermit is a collaboration between authors L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid, is a full length 110k word novel, and is a standalone.

The Hooker And The Hermit is a fantastic contemporary romance by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid. Team Cosway/Reid have produced a book that is well-written and populated with spectacular characters. This book is written in first person, alternating point of view, my least favorite format, but I admit, these ladies totally made it work in this book. Annie is socially awkward, and knows it. Being a hermit in NYC isn't easy, but she's as close as you can get. Ronan is living in NYC after being suspended from playing rugby. Ronan and Annie's story is loaded with drama, humor and sizzle. This book is hysterically funny in parts, so if you're reading, don't drink anything. Spraying happens when you ignore that rule, ask my poor kindle. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from team Cosway/Reid in the future. The Hooker And The Hermit is book 1 of the Rugby Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
