HIDDEN – A Hiding From Love Novel
New Adult Contemporary Romance
Nick Carlisle comes to Hawaii to hide—from what happened during his service in Afghanistan, from relationships, from his future. Lyndsey Anderson came to Hawaii to hide too—from the man who abused her, from the sacrifices she made, from her dark past. But when Nick meets Lyndsey, Hawaii gets a whole lot hotter, and they find they can’t hide their hearts. As Nick fights to come to terms with what he’s done, Lyndsey struggles to forgive herself for the choices she’s made. But when the dangerous past threatens the beautiful present, can they survive to learn how to love? And who will finally reveal what’s hidden?
I’m a wife, and a mom, and some would say a generally all-around nice person who woke up one day and realized that a) life wasn’t getting any longer, and b) the only thing I really liked to do was write and read Romance fiction. It was a lifelong tendency that started with books like PRIDE AND PREJUDICE when I was a teen, and continued in college when I would sit in the library and read Harlequins instead of studying for finals (OK, that part wasn’t terribly smart). Over the years I filled my need for romance by getting married (Mr. Laurence has a romantic streak hidden in there somewhere), watching soap operas, and dreaming about all sorts of improbable stories.
When I finally gave in to my obsession, I sat down (many times) at the local coffee shop, and wrote a book. The book was terrible, and I put it away, never to be seen again – seriously, never again. But eventually, with critique partners, beta readers, and a workshop or ten I found my rhythm and started publishing books. Now, I spend hours and hours every day writing New Adult and Contemporary romances, drinking coffee, and trying to figure out how to get someone else to clean my house (that part’s not going so well).
