A Night Calls Novella
Following his divorce, Felix Sinclair vowed to never commit to a woman again…until he washed up on Poppy Montgomery’s doorstep, proving that sometimes taking the road less traveled pays off.
One night of passion promised a lifetime of happiness, but when Felix begins to grow distant, disappearing for long periods of time without an explanation, Poppy begins to suspect that Felix may not be as committed to her as he claims.
They say the hardest part of love is trusting your heart to someone else, but Poppy is about to find out that sometimes the hardest part may be letting go.
Author’s Note: Please note that while Trust can be read as a standalone, it is a continuation of Poppy and Felix’s story from Stranded, book #1 in the Night Calls series.
Trust is a quick, tantalizing read that will take you on an emotional journey of two people that have their love tested and come out stronger because of it.
Learning to trust someone isn't easy when you have been previously hurt in past relationships. Poppy is someone that I admire for her strength to stay true to herself. She knows the kind of life she wants and isn't afraid to walk away from something that doesn't follow her plan. Although she loves Felix completely, she won't let him treat her the way she was treated in the past.
Felix isn't perfect and his actions are less than desirable, I love how committed he is to Poppy. He's determination to make things right with Poppy is commendable. I treasure a man that will go to the end of world for the woman he loves.
This novella is brisk, sensual read that is perfect with a glass of wine at the end of a long day.

Night Calls, #1
Burned, Felix Sinclair has all but vowed never to get seriously involved with another woman as long as he lives. After a long day’s work, Felix is looking forward to getting back to his luxury apartment in the city. When he detours onto a road less traveled in order to shave off some travel time, the last thing he expects is to wind up stranded in a roadside ditch in the middle of a downpour–or to fall into the arms of a beautiful woman.
Recently divorced, jobless, friendless and utterly alone, Poppy Montgomery is struggling to convince herself that single life is what she wants–needs. Then a handsome stranger staggers into her life and sparks fly. Riding out the storm together, their instant connection seems like the perfect opportunity to explore a night of passion, but will one night be enough to satisfy their craving for one another?
Author's Note: Stranded is the first in an interconnected series of erotic romance. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but you will find that each new character has been previously introduced in some way. As an introduction to the series, Stranded is a novella, but rest assured each new addition will be a full length novel worth sinking your teeth into.
