Back Cover Synopsis:

Fate and second chances…

Laura Kensington knows it’s now or never. If she doesn’t leave her abusive husband, not only is her life in danger but the life of her unborn child is as well. But even after the monster she married dies suddenly, Laura fears she can never escape his family, the ruthless and dangerous Kensington clan, who consider the baby she’s carrying to be their own.  Desperate and determined, she flees to Evers, Texas, with a new identity, taking refuge on the ranch of Cade Bishop, a man who firmly believes in second chances.

Drawn to this handsome man who has dedicated his life to the rescue of endangered animals, Laura finds comfort in his passion and his love, yet she fears he sees her as merely another needy case. But she will need more from Cade than his tender touch and understanding heart when her past resurfaces, bringing grave peril into her world once more. For relentless enemies, both anticipated and unexpected, are drawing closer by the day, ensnaring her in a deadly web of deception, betrayal, and murder.  And her only hope of breaking free lies in Cade’s powerful, loving heart.

  1. the cover alone is seductive- – domestic abuse must have been a tough topic to write about, did you attend workshops or meetings for reference in writing this novel?

  2. Hi Jennifer! I did have to research some of the aspects of recovery that Laura would be dealing with and all of that as complicated by her husband’s death. She also had some issues to work through over her father and her upbringing. She really deserved her HEA!

    I am going to have a character that is a country music star turned pop icon in one book this year! Can’t wait to bring those influences into the story:)

    • Hi! It was after. I’ll reveal the working title at the Twitter Party tomorrow! I renamed it as soon as I realized it would be part of the Evers, Texas Series.

    • Hi! Nope – I never thought much about it. I was a lawyer years ago and then a dog trainer most recently. One day, I decided to try writing a book and it just took off from there! But, I’m loooooving it!

    • Yes! The first in a new series, Evers, Texas! For those that have read my Sutton Capital Series, this is sweeter. Little to no adult language and passion, but not explicit sex.

    • I was pregnant with my son and had to stay in bed or on the couch for much of the last two months. I started reading about a book or two a day and just started thinking of plots and characters in my head. When they started talking to me…well, I decided they had to get out of there!

  3. Lori, I’m thrilled to have gotten acquainted with you from Ruth. As soon as I saw the cover it grabbed my attention, then when I read the summary, I immediately purchased as it’s now a must read for me! What draws you to a new book from a new author to you?
