Tagline: It’s a rough ride from dark past to second chance
On the run from her psycho ex, Laurel Wheeler stops in Chisholm Falls, Texas for snacks at a gas station just before it’s held up by two desperate criminals. When one robber begins firing, a handsome stranger named Jase Miles saves her life. Hoping to make a little money and thank her rescuer at the same time, the broke Laurel agrees to a secret deal regarding Jase, who's the town pariah.
But what starts as deception quickly turns complicated. Laurel begins to fall for the brooding man who hides his pain behind a mask of indifference. And Jase begins to fall for the sweet woman who, unlike everyone else in town, doesn’t treat him like a monster. Then a careless mistake shatters the fragile trust and their growing bond… perhaps beyond saving.
About the Author:
Trish has been an avid fan of romance fiction since she "borrowed" a book from her mother's stash when she was just a teenanger (it was Hearts Aflame by Johanna Lindsey). She's been devouring all genres of romance ever since. She nursed a long time dream to write stories of her own and finally realized there was no time like the present. After completing and publishing her first book, a fantasy romance, in early 2015, she is now writing a contemporary romance series.
A native Texan, Trish lives just outside Austin with her incredibly supportive husband and their incredibly spoiled dog. Aside from romance fiction, her other loves include dogs, warm weather, wine, playing trivia, and spending too much time on social media.
