Four-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock has never met a romance sub-genre she didn’t like. The author of over eighty books enjoys writing a wide range of stories, most recently focusing on sexy contemporaries and small town family sagas. An optimist by nature and perpetual seeker of silver linings, Joanne finds romance fits her life outlook perfectly–love is worth fighting for. A frequent speaker at regional and national writing conferences she enjoys giving back to the writing community that nurtured and inspired her early career. She has a Masters degree in Literature from the University of Louisville but credits her fiction writing skills to her intensive study with friend and fellow author Catherine Mann. When she’s not writing, Joanne enjoys travel, especially to see her favorite sports teams play with her former sports editor husband and three athletic-minded sons.
Chiara has created quite the following on her social media platforms which gives her the access she needs to the party that is being hosted by Miles. She plans to use her time in his home to see what she can discover about the suspicious death of the boy she knew as a teenager and has never forgotten.
Miles is a loyal friend who is determined to protect the secrets of the past. Not only is he attracted to Chiara, but he is intrigued by her as well and working together might just get them the answers they need.
There is no denying the chemistry between them but if they are to have anything more, they must be willing to let each other into their lives and their hearts.
