The wait is over! Bree Rogers is about to meet her match—for the second time. A man from her past returns to town, and it doesn’t take long before old memories, and old emotions, come to the surface.
I love Bree as much as I love any character I’ve ever written, and Marcus Keller is no slouch, either. Have a peek:

Sins of Her Past Excerpt
Though it pained her to give up without a fight, Bree pictured the check that would be deposited at the end of this week, the one with all those extra zeroes. That kind of money bought a lot of compromise.
She’d still make Marcus work for it. “Fine. I’ll need my own assistant. I run on caffeine and sugar, and you can’t expect me to drop my work every time I need a bowl of mini Snickers.”
Marcus glanced at her waistline.
“Snark burns a lot of calories,” she told him. “I want a keycard, because I set my own hours, and most of them will be after midnight. If someone needs to contact me, they will, in order, email, text, instant message, and then video chat. I’ll growl at anyone who knocks on my door without an appointment, and I don’t pick up the phone for anyone but my best friends and people who share my DNA. Also, I want a private screening of The Princess Bride in the theater.”
“As you wish.” The man didn’t skip a beat. “But I expect daily timecards so I know when you’re working. We have an on-site cafeteria and a juice bar. Try to consume a few vitamins. If I call, you’ll pick up. If you don’t, I’ll come looking for you, and I don’t care if you growl at me. I seem to recall enjoying that.”
