Thank you for inviting me here today to talk about my newest release, MERCY.
This book is a little different from the books I’ve been writing lately. First, it’s a single title. That means it’s long. I’ve written some 40,000-50,000 words stories over the last few years. This isn’t one of them. So, If you’re a single title fan this could be for you.
MERCY is also an erotic romance. To me that means the sexual relationship drives the romantic relationship. In MERCY, the hero and heroine can’t connect on many levels but they can in the bedroom and they build from there.
They have a past. A really difficult one. Becca Ford is a former CIA agent. She’s been burned and is looking for a place to hide and escape the danger lurking around her while she figures out her next step. That lands her on Jarrett Holt’s doorstep.
Jarrett is the mysterious former criminal boss-turned-millionaire Washington, DC powerbroker with whom Becca once lived. She was undercover at the time and helped set him up to get arrested. Needless to say, having been betrayed Jarrett does not start out in a forgiving mood. The exact opposite, actually.
Here’s how Becca describes him when they first see each other again:
In some respects he looked like any other serious D.C. business owner fresh from a conference with a list of wealthy contacts on speed dial. But Jarrett was not like any man she’d ever known. Black hair he wore longer than was fashionable, until it grazed his collar, and a permanent shadow of stubble low on his cheeks and chin. He hid his millionaire status as well as he hid the secrets of how he amassed his fortune and gained his power.
He possessed the toned build of a long-distance runner, which he was. He had broad shoulders and loomed over her by a few inches, even though she stood just shy of five-ten. But his strong hands grabbed her attention. They could bring a woman to shuddering orgasm after only a few knowing touches.
The good news is they have a lot of room to grow from there. And they do.

After she infiltrated his business and betrayed his trust, a disavowed CIA agent must seek sanctuary in the bedroom of a man who will either help her, kill her, or bring her to her knees…
Becca Ford is on her own. Eight months after she headed up a sting operation to take down millionaire club owner Jarrett Holt, the other agents in her special ops team have been eliminated under odd circumstances, and she needs a place to hide.
Jarrett is a man who prefers darkness to light. He deals in the only truly valuable currency—information—and his supper club caters to an exclusive clientele. It was an uncharacteristic moment of weakness when he let a woman into his life. But it’s not luck that the criminal charges disappeared . . . as did the evidence.
When Becca returns to the club seeking his help, Jarrett doesn’t want to hear her story. But he does want her body, and demands that she give it to him. He’ll keep her safe—for now—but it’ll be in his bed and on his terms, until he says they’re done.
