Cover Design: Dharti Trivedi
“It’s becoming fast apparent that the only way I’m going to be able to stay away from a certain diner waitress is if she orders me away. . . And, even then, it’s going to be difficult to stay away.”
Hollywood heartthrob Nate Stone returns to his south Louisiana hometown to direct a movie, but once he gets there all he can think about is the pretty waitress at the local diner. Tori Wilson knows that the smoking hot actor-turned-director will stop at nothing to get her into his bed, but he can only offer her a short affair–and he’s asking for a lot more than simple sex. Tori has never wanted anyone as badly as she wants Nate, but is she willing to let him take control when she’s already been burned before? And if she submits to his commands, will he dominate her heart?
“Nate Stone leaves devastation in his wake. When he walks away from me the last time, I’ll be a different person than I was before I met him. It would be smart of me to end it here and now, but god help me, I’m in too deep already and the only way this will end is when he leaves me for good, crushed and alone. I can’t stop it and I won’t, I’ll continue to fall to my doom with only the hope that there will be something left to my heart on the other side. Even so. . . I want everything he can give me.”
D.L. Hess read her first romance novel when she was ten years old. It was Judith McNaught’s Once and Always, and she spent that entire Saturday night hiding in the closet and reading until she was done . . . only to start again from the beginning. That book left an imprint, an imprint that she hopes to leave with you.
D.L. Hess grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and now goes between her hometown and Los Angeles, where she works as a screenwriter. Her partner-in-crime is a nine-pound Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix named Busby Berkeley who travels with her everywhere in a carrier that looks like a purse. D.L. Hess is an avid fan of Cajun cooking, traveling, and discovering new experiences. Her travel bucket list includes cruising all the major rivers in the world. So far, she has only hit two of them.
