When they met, love was the last thing they were looking to discover…
Local bar owner Cali Tate has always been trendy, easy-going, and impulsive. She isn’t afraid to take chances, but her carefree attitude may have put her restaurant in jeopardy. Her failing business is beginning to take a toll on her, both mentally and financially. When her best friend asks her to do a favor and take some books to the town’s reclusive professor Cali welcomes the distraction. To her surprise, the sexy professor is nothing like she had pictured him.
Dr. Carter Stavros wants to be left alone. He’s set in his ways and doesn’t want to be bothered with the outside world. Wanting to escape the demons of his recent past, he moved to Steeple, taking a sabbatical from his teaching job to write a book. He wasn’t prepared for the spunky, persistent bar owner to invade his life. But the more she pushes, the more intrigued he becomes.
Neither one of them expected to find any common ground, much less fall in love. What happens when an OCD professor collides with a risk-taking woman who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer?
Content Warning: contains graphic sex and mature content
I’m excited to announce the release of A Love Discovered. If you’ve read A Love Stolen you’ve met Cali. See how the sassy bar owner discovers love with a sexy, domineering professor.
After lunch, another hour of conversation, and a long swim, Cali lounged on the chair by the pool. Her shoulder-length blonde hair dried naturally and curled at the ends. Carter watched as she closed her eyes and enjoyed the afternoon sun. Her tanned skin glistened with sunscreen and her tiny bikini was almost dry. He wondered how many hours of intense workouts created a body like hers.
“Are you admiring me again?” she asked with her eyes still closed.
“How many tattoos do you have?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?” She giggled.
“I would.”
As improper as it was, he couldn’t take his gaze away from her right nipple. The evidence straining against her damp bikini indicated a piercing of some sort. He’d never been more fascinated by anyone before. Throughout the years he’d seen quite a few attractive young women on campus, but he never acted on impulse when it came to students, no matter how tempting. Cali wasn’t a student. She was a quirky, attractive woman who was very much in touch with her sexuality. She turned him on. He wanted to explore with her.
“Four.”
He sat on the edge of the lounge chair, taking her right ankle into his hand. “Here.” He outlined the small butterfly that permanently marked her skin.
“That’s one.” She opened her eyes when he trailed his hand up her leg and to her hip.
It had been years since he had pursued a woman. He’d gotten married when he was twenty-four and stayed faithful through the whole fourteen years of that turbulent relationship.
“Two.” He swept his fingers over the pink-and-purple-colored rose petals sprinkled along her hip.
“Keep going.”
He took her hand in his and examined more rose petals on the inside of her wrist. “Do they hold significance?” He traced his fingertips over the tattoo, indulging in her smooth skin beneath his touch. The way her flesh prickled in response instigated his actions.
“I like roses.” She sat up, placed her legs across his lap, and leaned closer to his face. “My mother had the most beautiful rose bushes in our backyard.” She pushed her hair to the side and tilted her neck. “Four.”
“It’s exquisite,” he mumbled as he took in the ivy that started at her collarbone and flowed down the back of her shoulder blade.
“I wouldn’t have pegged you for a man who likes ink on his woman.”
“I’m not usually.” He ran his thumb from the start of the tattoo to where it ended on her back. He wanted to feel every inch of her forbidden flesh. She shivered when he stopped. “It goes back to those boundaries you don’t have.”
Reaching out, she placed her palm on his cheek, directing him closer to her lips. “The question is…” She brushed her mouth against his chin. “Do you have enough for both of us?”

Synopsis

Siobhan Gallagher has just started her senior year at the University of Southern California. She has her best friend and her boyfriend of five years by her side. As the countdown to graduation begins, her world comes crashing down when her boyfriend confesses that he has cheated on her. Her past has shown that love is volatile, but she had hoped that this time would be different. Siobhan becomes a cynic – doubting the existence of love. She vows to never give her heart to another.

In walks Professor Michaels. He is a sexy billionaire playboy who limits his encounters to one night, maybe two. His jaded past and multitude of secrets shapes his aversion to love and relationships. He makes no promises of forever. Offers no apologies for his preference for variety. When he first meets Siobhan, the attraction is mutually instantaneous. He knows she is supposed to be off limits, but he has never denied himself of something he wanted.

Siobhan and Professor Michaels share the same sardonic outlook on love. What happens when these two paths cross? If they give into this forbidden attraction, can they both come out on the other side unscathed?

For those who do not know me, I am the author of romance novel Impulses and the upcoming romantic suspense/mystery trilogy, The Dark Evoke Series.

Raised in a creative family, witnessing one another expressing themselves through creativity, albeit musically or through a form of literature, it was only a matter of time before my passion for devising characters and their unique stories in their own world, began to form and grow. From there the seed was sown and flourished into a young girls dream.Throughout the years I have often toyed with the idea of pursuing this path, yet unknowing where to begin. There are so many routes in this day and age to help get from A to B, that the dream was both tangible and terrifying. So with that, and after a few months of kicking myself into gear thanks to a certain someone, I decided to self-publish, and that decision was most probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.I am a mother of a five year old son who knows how to keep me on my toes, and married my high school sweetheart 6 years ago. I can’t express how supportive and understanding both have been while pursuing this journey.If I’m not writing I’m constantly thinking about writing and can be found either chasing my son around, or with my nose in book.
