Full-length stand alone novel:
I made a pact with myself a long time ago: Ren Hayden will never accept the ‘victim’ label. I stick to that promise, too—going on seven years now. Perhaps I’m somewhat twisted, but I easily numb the effects of my tragic life story by turning my emotions on and off as if by switch. When I can’t, I rely on three coping mechanisms that never fail me: cigarettes, writing out checks to charities, and meaningless, mind-numbing sex. A lonely life at age 23, perhaps, but living for my notable career as an entertainment journalist is enough. It’s the best I can hope for and it works for me.
Suddenly, another tragedy takes away the only person who really knew me. The loss and all the turmoil he leaves behind become the final straw for my defense mechanisms, leaving me wide open to a sincere set of ethereal, hazel eyes.
Galen Zabriese is nothing this emotion-phobic girl can afford to be near and everything the world needs to be a better place--although he would certainly say differently on both counts. And for some reason, he sees right through my faltering defenses. He knows I’m hiding things. And no matter what I say or do, he can’t keep his hands off me....
