The past can be murder on relationships.
Isabel Beachwood just lost her dream job. Now she’s forced to move out of her precious Victorian apartment, and in with her stepsister, bringing back ugly memories of a painful childhood.
Ty Griffin is a financial magnate who deals in multi-million dollar mergers and acquisitions. His bespoke suits can’t hide a body worthy of a professional athlete. Those intense azure eyes telegraph a keen intellect. And his mouth, the only soft thing about him, is sinfully sensual. But his drive to succeed has all but obliterated any chance for a personal life.
Isabel is surprised when, during her moving sale, none other than the white-hot Ty Griffin, CEO of Grandin Financial, buys her prized Carmel-by-the-Sea table. When she finds out he’s part of the reason she lost her job, her apartment, and her adorable table, she’s incensed.
The moment Ty meets the voluptuous and challenging Isabel Beachwood, he’s completely enthralled. He’s the kind of man who’s used to getting what he wants. And he wants Isabel.
While their steamy relationship heats up, an insidious danger seems to be shadowing them. It’s a treacherous threat that could ruin everything.
Soon Ty and Isabel are dealing with an over-protective stepsister, a highly trained German Shepherd, a pain in the butt Welsh Corgi, a jealous gold-digger, an obsessed suitor, a former lover, and Isabel’s quirky tech colleagues. All of which turn out to be the least of their problems.
Because the past won’t die. And it can be murder.

I was very interested in this book and wanted to know what would happen with Isabel. Isabel wasn’t happy as a child and as an adult there were still issues but she slowly overcame them. She was savvy in a way that she never new. She was faced with losing things that mattered to her and she found that she had to begin to figure things out again. When she meets Ty, who really is the one who brings out things in her that she seemed to hold in, there was not an instant connection but more of regret for the things that she was going through.
Ty has it all. He’s a business man and the world is trying to catch up to him. He gets what he wants and works hard for it. He has an instant connection with Isabel but the way she felt about him after finding out who he is was hard. He pursued her and he was not going to give up. I loved how many things the story had to offer, crazy exes, co-workers from hell, and many other things to add suspense to the book.
The only fault that would have to give is the descriptions of everything in the book. I felt it took away from the story. There were parts to the story that was a little hard to follow but overall this was a good book!
About the Author
I love romantic fiction. Any kind of romantic fiction, whether it be historical, contemporary, fantasy, erotic - you name it. What's not to love about a swoon-worthy hero and a spunky heroine plagued by all sorts of conflicts keeping them apart, until it all works out and they live happily ever after? For the most part.
My first book, Closed Set, was published in June 2014. I am currently working on my second book. It definitely has a very swoon-worthy hero and an unforgettable heroine. Stay tuned for more info!
