Rebecca Gelbert had no idea that opening her front door would open up her whole world.
Brick Dunne walked through and changed everything. And now he wants the one thing he can't have, his lawyer.
Rebecca Gelbert is good at being alone. She's stunning, brilliant, an excellent attorney, and a pretty good sister. She has her moments, but life is pretty even keel, and that's exactly how she planned it when she was seven years old. A knock on the door and a flash of a tattooed hand through the peephole set her soul sparking as well as other ignored parts of her. There's only one man she's ever deemed too dangerous to want.
The moment was brief, but Becca remembers every second of their interaction. The way his fingers caressed her hand. The broad, muscular frame and piercing grey eyes that lingered over her face and figure. The slow drawl of his deep south accent as he said her name. She keeps all of it tucked away for lonely nights.
But now this man is at her house, in the middle of the night, begging for her help. He's in trouble, and only she can help him. She wants to refuse him, but she can't. He has an unspoken power over her, and she can only hope he wields it for good.
I used to create "dreams" with my best friend growing up. We'd each pick a boy we liked, then we'd write down a meet-cute that always ended with a happily ever after. Now I get to dream every day, although it's a little steamier these days. And I've discovered I can and will write anywhere I can. Keep tuned to Instagram to see all the times I fit in a sentence or two. I've published one trilogy, one duet, and a standalone this year and there's a lot more planned.
I'm a writer, married to a writer, mother of a creative dynamo of a nine-year-old boy, and currently a little sleepy. I'm a klutz and goofball and love lipstick as much as my Chuck Taylors.
Good things in the world: pepperoni pizza, Flair pens*, wine, coffee, laughing with my friends until my stomach hurts, a musician at the top of their game, getting lost somewhere I've never been, matinee movies on a weekday, the Chicago Cubs, a fresh new notebook full of possibilities, bourbon on a cold night, Fantasy Football, witty men, walking through the local zoo in the rain and that moment when a character clicks in and begins to write their own adventure. I'm just the pen.
