Erin Andersen specializes in motivation. When Stephen Spence misses one too many deadlines, the publisher sends Erin to salvage the book.
He blames writer’s block, but Erin thinks he’s narcissistic, lazy, and spending too much time partying at his beach house.
When Spence sails to the Florida Keys for some undeserved R&R, Erin tags along as first mate to avoid losing the contract. After a week at sea, her disdain gives way to desire and she discovers sexy Stephen Spence can focus – when he wants to. Worse, she finds that distraction is contagious.
Fun in the sun is fine, but Erin has a job to do. Her new plan is to isolate Spence at her family’s farm in Eaton, where she grew up, and where she can control the situation on her terms.
Or can she?
Erin’s reckless compromises prove costly as the six-figure book deal slips through her fingers. She must choose between her career and her foolish heart.
Whatever she decides, she might lose both. 

The first in a wonderful romance series, Return to Eaton: WHEN LOVE SPEAKS,  “Distracted” by Robin Van Auken, writing as Madeline Sloane, introduces readers to Eaton, a fictional, idyllic town tucked away in the mountains of Pennsylvania. 

Other books in the series are “East of Eaton" and "West Wind." The second series, “Secrets of Eaton” contains the romantic suspense novels “Consequence,” “Incandescent” and “Dead Line.” Coming up in "Mysteries of Eaton" are "Charnel House," "Well of the Dead" and "Skinterns."

Here’s what reviewers said about Robin Van Auken’s Women of Eaton trilogy, containing the novels Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind:

5 out of 5 stars ~ Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind: The Trilogy

“Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind are filled with independent, strong, wonderful women. This series shows women the way they should be. Able to cope and function on their own, but increased when they add the right man to their life. Doing their job and raising their family the way everyone should, when these men happen into their world. Love comes without them realizing it but with all the bells and whistles.
I very highly recommend this series to everyone!! It's romantic, sweet, funny and will cause butterflies in your stomach. This is romance the way it should be written. Not about some woman who can't live life without a man, but a strong woman made stronger when you add the man she loves. It's a terrific series that I've read 3 times already. You will enjoy this and end with a smile.

Robin Van Auken
Each weekend in the 1950s, 30,000 boys knocked at the doors of more than 700,000 American small-town homes and were welcomed with a smile and a dime as they delivered the weekly edition of Grit, America's Greatest Family Newspaper.

For more than 100 years, Grit delivered news, features, fiction, coupons, and comics to families across the nation. More than a million children have sold Grit, some for a few weeks, some for several years. Many adults, including Astronaut John Glenn, look back on the experience with pride.

This short eBook single (5,500 words) introduces Grit and its founder, Dietrick Lamade, whose ambition and determination epitomizes the word "Grit" and who, despite his prejudices, brought the world to the American living room each week.

A journalistic legacy, Grit recorded timely events and celebrated family and community through good times and bad. Many of its articles and features are endearing and touching portraits that chronicled the United States, indeed, the world's, progress and misfortune.

Founded in 1882 as a Saturday edition of the Daily Sun and Banner in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Grit was at first a short-lived venture. Then, two years later, Dietrick Lamade purchased it. His story is typically American; the story of a young man who sought and found opportunity, and who, in 50 years, created one of the miracles of modern publishing.

Beginning in 1882, Grit: America's Greatest Family Newspaper was on hand to record the world’s history. With millions of readers throughout the United States, it also had the power to influence politics, local and national. 

Many people miss their Sunday Grit, which brought homespun news to their doorsteps each week. It lives again at http://www.SundayGrit.com.
