Revenge, greed and betrayal lead to Lisa’s kidnapping leaving her no choice but to trust Colby with her life and eventually her heart.

We first met the Hero of Office Hours, Ryan Rose, in Revelations From the Past. Excerpt from Revelations From the Past

Colby checked the number on the door, right before slamming his fist into Ryan’s face. Ryan stumbled back inside. “What the…” “Ryan!” Lisa ran to her brother’s side. Turning to Colby, she screamed, “You bastard. You…” Catching the look in Colby’s eyes Lisa swallowed the rest of her words before he demanded, “Is he the reason we can’t be?” Colby jerked a thumb toward Ryan, sitting on the bed with a towel held against his bloody nose. “Or is he just tonight’s distraction?” Colby felt the sting from Lisa’s slap. Instinctively he cuffed her wrist with his hand to avoid the second one from making contact. Blood still dripping, Ryan jumped between them. “You’re going to want to let go of her,” he ordered Colby. “We buried our father today. Whatever’s going on between you two will have to wait.” Colby released Lisa, shoving her into Ryan. “Fuck it. She’s all yours.” Halfway to the elevator he froze. The guy said we just buried our father. He wasn’t Lisa’s lover, he was her brother. And that made him a jealous asshole. Turning back to apologize, he ran right into Ryan. “I wondered how long it’d take you to get my message. The only reason I didn’t kick your ass in there was because of what I saw in my sister’s eyes when you came in. Something I haven’t seen in way too long. She cares about you.” He held his hand out to Colby. “I’m Ryan. Ryan Rose, Lisa’s brother.” Colby shook the offered hand. “Colby Durran. Sorry about your nose.” “It’s not broken. But Lisa’s the one you owe an apology.” “You’re right. Though I doubt she’ll accept it.” “Did you sleep with my sister?” Colby narrowed his eyebrows. “Are you going to change your mind about kicking my ass if I say yes?” Smirking, Ryan shook his head. “I’m going to congratulate you. My sister’s been through hell and back. The fact she allowed you into her life, her bed, means you’re someone special. She’ll accept your apology, though she won’t make it easy on you. I suggest flowers. She likes Carnations. ” After writing Revelations From the Past, Ryan demanded his own story. Ryan’s story will be released October 10, 2014

Today We’re Celebrating Author Jennifer Wilck’s New Release, Miriam’s Surrender

image001 BLURB Josh Lowenstein is a successful architect, hired to redesign the alumni club of a posh, private school in New York. He is strong, capable and knows the best way to do everything. Except let another woman in. Miriam Goldberg is the Assistant Director of Outreach, and is Josh’s day-to-day contact for the redesign. She’s taken care of everyone around her, and forgotten how to let someone else take care of her. With a tumultuous history, neither one is prepared to work together. As they get to know each other, the animosity disappears, but Josh is hiding something from Miriam and its discovery has the possibility of destroying their relationship. Only when they are both able to let the other in, and release some of the control they exert over everything, will they be able to see if their love can survive.

Excerpt Josh sat in the cab and looked out the window. Lights and people and cars and buildings rushed by in a blur. His eyes glazed over and in their place Miriam appeared. Miriam touching his arm and reassuring him, Miriam smiling, Miriam’s hair shining, Miriam looking at him as he bent to kiss her. Whatever made him do it? When they’d stood outside her apartment in the cold night air, her cheeks had turned pink from the cold. He smiled. She controlled so many of her outward reactions to things, but she couldn’t control that one. From his height and angle, he’d watched the light from the street lamps shine on her hair, making it appear to glow. Their breath, a white fog, had intermingled as they stood facing each other. Her lips were soft and plump. He’d spent the evening watching them mold words, stretch into a smile, surround her food as she chewed. He couldn’t help himself; he’d wanted to kiss her. It was the briefest wish. He’d made the slightest move toward her. But in the one too-brief second, he’d glimpsed much more. Her pupils had dilated, she’d raised her face to his and she’d parted her lips. He’d discovered Miriam’s desire. And now he knew she wanted him, it would take all of his control not to give in to his own need.
