A QUARTER PAST LOVE is an erotic romance novel in step with popular sexy mommy stories. The story is filled with twists and turns leading to steamy romance, paranormal encounters, murder, and devoted friendship. It has been given a two thumbs up from a local book club stating, “It's the book you'd recommend to all your friends.” It's the ideal read for a rainy weekend or the beach where the reader can curl their toes in the sand listening to the sound of the surf as they live the encounters between Rainie and Michael.
Rainie Todd was a hot mess, the poster child for dysfunction; however, from the outside, she appeared beautiful, successful, and together. The last thing she wanted was a relationship. She'd been there and done that, and it didn't end well. Dr. Michael Landry was a nice guy, someone to date as a friend for great dinners and the occasional cocktail party. He certainly didn't give off vibes that ignited her sexually, but he was a good friend-that was-until the night of his company party when he turned up the heat, revealing a side of him she'd never seen, and she lusted with intrigue. Not only did Michael light flames of desire, but he was perhaps the most sexually stimulating man she'd ever met. The icing on the cake-he was in love with her and had been from the first time they met.
Their relationship hinged on the truths behind their dark secrets. Rainie opened up to Michael about her ex-husband's wanton affairs and how it had pushed her off the rails onto a twisted path of drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, and reckless behavior. One wrong decision after the other landed her in the midst of a cartel drug operation, endangering all those she loved. Of all her secrets, the one she held closest to her heart was Rand-her deceased twin who still lived on in Rainie's life despite the grave. Michael opened his heart, embraced her past challenges, and confided his need for ultimate control and a past predilection for BDSM. Once they revealed their pasts, the doors opened for steamy interludes and a deep, forever kind of love. It was well overdue at A QUARTER PAST LOVE.
