Fear has a way of stopping us from doing things which are important. I never learned how to snow ski because the one time I went, I had a difficult time and let the fear keep me from learning. Then I refused to go again.
The hero in Landra Graf's latest release must face the last person he ever wanted to see... and forget the fear which grips him.
True Colors is a gripping, heart-warming romance of two people who needed each other. A must read!
An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.
Five years ago, Rose Roberts won a Pulitzer prize—and nearly lost her life at the hands of a stalker. After severe anxiety derailed everything, she is about to lose her career and her stalker is on the loose.
Following the murders of his wife and daughter, ex-cop, Jeffrey Dixon, finds himself in need of a windfall to save his home from foreclosure. Searching for a solution, he doesn’t expect to run into the woman who made his loved ones’ killer an overnight celebrity. Or to be offered a job.
Rose, now desperate, is willing to pay whatever price, if he’ll agree to act as her bodyguard and be the subject of her next article. Without any other prospects, Jeff accepts her job offer and moves in.
Becoming emotionally entangled with a woman who wrecked his grieving process is the last thing he wants, but as weeks drag on and the threat from Rose’s stalker becomes very real, Jeff finds his protective instincts triggered. He won't lose someone again.
As their attraction grows and their barriers drop the exposure will leave them questioning everything they hold on to.
Sometimes, the only way to see someone’s truth is to expose the things they fear most.
“Here’s your coffee, Rose.”
The words startled her, especially the use of her name as she’d never mentioned it, and she tripped over her own feet trying to turn around. She got two hands on the bar and gripped the edge of the wood. “Thank you?”
A cute glass, not some disposable thing, but a tall thermal cup with the Cupid’s Café logo. She grabbed the glass and a couple of napkins from the small stack on the bar. Then she decided to throw caution to the wind and get the hell away from the mind-reading barista
Face the demons.
She approached Jeff, plastering a polite smile on her face. “Hi, Jeff Dixon?”
Jeff, who was staring into his glass of black coffee—she may have to judge him for that—looked up at her. No flare of recognition came. “Yes?”
“You don’t remember me?”
Her original assessment changed. The years had been friendly to him. The widow’s peak hadn’t gained much ground, gray was present around his temples and in the dead center of his goatee. His hair was no plain brown color, but there were traces of red and black weaved in too. Maddening how her body awakened and she found herself attracted to this man. Completely inconvenient and annoying when she needed to be concerned about her future job and safety.
He shook his head. “’Fraid not.”
“Rose Roberts.” She said these words as she slid into the booth seat opposite of him. Whatever stupid reaction she expected, it certainly wasn’t the hunched eyebrows and scowl that darkened his countenance. Well…she’d hoped for something else.
“And what the hell do you want?”
She took a sip of coffee and let the warm liquid soothe her tight throat.
This is going to be awkward.
