Man do I love this cover!
WORTH THE WAIT
Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she’s spent each day putting her life back together. Once vibrant and outgoing, she’s needed to reclaim the best parts of who she was while retaining the hard won lessons. There hasn’t been room for any romantic entanglements, even if she were ready. Still, it didn’t mean she had to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark and Tattooed himself.
Security professional Andrew Copeland isn’t quite sure when his jones for the lovely and decidedly skittish Ella developed. He’s known her for years, has watched her triumph over the pain she’d been dealt. Cope is no stranger to women, but he knows the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to her is different than any attraction he’s had in the past. Determined to get Ella to let him in, Andy does the one thing he can think of to get close: he offers her hands-on training in self-defense.
While Ella’s sure he’s just being nice, the prospect of being able to touch him and gain the tools to push away the last vestiges of her fear is more than she can resist. Soon enough, Cope shows Ella his feelings are far more than friendly and re-ignites something deep inside her. Before long desire and love turn them both inside out.
In the grand prize we have:
Signed copy of INSIDE OUT
Copy of The Essential Pablo Neruda (amazing collection of his poetry side by side in English and Spanish). In INSIDE OUT, Cope reads Neruda to Ella – often while naked and in bed.
Organic Drip Grind Cafe Ladro Coffee (Ella’s favorite and mine too)
Copy of Mary Oliver’s New and Selected Poems (Ella discusses poetry with Cope and references Oliver’s Wild Geese as her favorite)
All in a fantastic and fun pin up girl tote with some other fun swag tossed in to compliment the theme!
Digital ARC of INSIDE OUT
Digital copy of SECOND CHANCES
Paper copy of LAID BARE
Paper copy of COMING UNDONE
Digital ARC of the follow up to Second Chances, BELIEVE
