SYNOPSIS

Charlotte Daley is the daughter of the newly elected POTUS. An only child, she’s both spoiled rotten and entirely neglected by her powerful family. She’s been forced to eat with the right forks, smile at all the right times, and be the picture of perfection for months. Now that her father is in office and too busy to know she exists, she’s determined to exercise her new freedom before she heads back to college in New York.

Ex-SEAL Zane Parker has one job to protect the President’s daughter, all day, every day. But she’s been on a partying spree since the inauguration, heading down a dangerous path that threatens to ruin her reputation and cause a major scandal for her father. Zane will lose his job if he can’t get her under control. Except he wants to sleep with her as badly as he wants to set her straight. She needs discipline. And he might be just the one to give it to her.

When unexpected circumstances tie Charlotte to D.C. for the foreseeable future, Zane makes her an offer that’s anything but honorable. He’ll give the first daughter all the thrills she’s seeking in exchange for one thing… Her obedience. Fascinated by Zane’s dark promises, Charlotte agrees. Submission has never felt so good. But as Zane brings her deeper into his forbidden desires, enemies surface and danger lurks.

Mia Michelle fell in love with the world of books the very first time she stepped inside of her small hometown library. Growing up, she loved to spend time losing herself in the world of make believe by creating her own imaginative stories. The gift of a leather journal for her eighth birthday inspired her dream of one day becoming a writer. Though she kept most of her writing private over the years, a childhood best friend read the first draft of Rose of Thorne and encouraged her to take the leap of faith to bring her dream to life.

Mia fully admits to having a hopeless infatuation with her Kindle, and suffers from a one-click book addiction. (No intervention required). When she isn’t shuttling her two kids between cheerleading and football practice, or folding a massive pile of laundry, she can be found curled up in her favorite cozy chair with a pen in one hand and an adult beverage in the other.

Mia currently resides in a quaint little southern town in Tennessee with her husband, two children, and a fur baby.

His Family of Convenience

Meet Amy Ayers:

Amy Ayers remembers writing her first fiction as an introspective tween in rainy Portland, Oregon. She took a break from writing to move with her family to the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Women’s Studies which lends itself to writing strong, opinionated heroines. She has worked as an Editor, a Job-Skills Trainer, and as an Executive Assistant. She even spent a college semester writing articles for the Tombstone Epitaph in the town ‘too tough to die’. She currently divides her time between her writing, her family (including one husband, four boys and two dogs), and her daily commute to work. A life-long lover of literature, she began writing her own contemporary romance in earnest in 2014 and is thrilled to be published with Entangled. She hopes to win the lottery someday so that she can devote all of her time to writing; until then, she writes when she can.

About His Family of Convenience:

 

Senna Callas’s one-night stand with her alpha asshole boss, Marco Medina, was supposed to mark the end of her internship and their ridiculous attraction. After being unreachable and ignoring Senna for a year, Marco sweeps back into the country and summons her to his office, revealing he knows her secret…the secret created during their explosive night together.

Marco is determined to be there for the son he’s just discovered he has, but when it comes to being with Senna, his choices aren’t his own. His meddling family expects him, the firstborn son, to follow through with the arranged marriage set up when he was a child. And Senna has no plans on being his mistress and still resents how her attempts to contact Marco were ignored. The only thing going right between them is the attraction that burns no matter the complicated situation they’re in.

Marco would do anything to protect his family, anything except decide between the legacy he was born into and the young family he’s just found…

Guest Post:

I asked Amy to tell readers about what inspires her to write, and how she was inspired to write His Family of Convenience.

I’ve always loved writing.  My college degree is in journalism and I have lots of experience with technical writing or really any fact based writing and that process is fairly smooth.  But fiction writing is another beast entirely. Part of this adventure of trying to switch from technical writing to fiction writing has been about finding a process that works, and that was much harder than I thought it would be (in fact, I’m still working on it!)

I’m a very visual person.  If I can see it, touch it, imagine it, I can usually write about it – factually at least.  The ball is heavy.  The product costs $10. Turn the wrench clockwise to tighten the screw.  Those are all facts and can be expressed with little or any embellishment.

But fiction writing is all about the embellishment.  It’s about placing your reader vicariously into the story so they get lost in the sights, sounds, smells and become emotionally involved in the hero’s journey.  That’s why we read fiction, to be transported. We pay our money and ride the ride and if we’re not lost in the writer’s words we feel gypped.

My fiction writing typically starts with images, something striking that I can’t forget.  For this story it started when I wrote the opening scene as a writing exercise with a group of romance authors. One person set the rules: the scene couldn’t be longer than 1000 words and had to include the words tango, flame and spice.  Flame and spice are still in there, by the way, but I lost tango in the edits.

Those words began to roll around in my mind and images of a college-type dive bar began to form.  Not just any bar, but a tequila bar with sombreros on the walls and tiki torches scattered around for light. Dark, sticky floors.  Beachside but not a particularly safe beach.  Then it became, “OK, why would my heroine be working here?  How would she know my hero? Would she be happy to see him if he wandered in?”  Why is probably the most helpful word in my author toolbox because the more you ask it, the better you get to know your characters.  And once you know them, you know why they can’t be together.  And that is what makes a great romance.  Two characters that absolutely can’t be together, but they find a way.

EXCERPT:

“He’s not just your son, or even our son. He’s part of a lineage, a birthright that demands certain behavior. Any Medina heir should be raised knowing our place in the world and the responsibility we have to the men, women, and children of Barcelona and Girona.”

Senna watched as Max tried valiantly to detach the probably solid gold links from the cuffs of what was certainly a custom shirt.

“That’s an incredible amount of pressure to put on yourself…and on a baby.”

His voice hardened again. “Max is a Medina. He’s the firstborn of a firstborn. He will fulfill his duties. That’s the way it’s been done for centuries.”

“It sounds like a prison sentence. What if he wants to be a doctor or a rock star or something?”

Marco’s laugh was harsh. “Firstborn sons don’t get to have dreams, princesa.”

She glanced at Max playing happily in his father’s lap, his big, expressive brown eyes taking in all the shiny newness that was Marco. So precious and innocent. Then the doubt hit her like a vicious punch. What have I sentenced him to?

“It’s not all bad, Senna. I love what I do, and I think I’m pretty good at it.”

“Yes, but if you had a choice, would this have been it?”

“I don’t know. Probably. I mean, I think every little boy has dreams of growing up and fighting fires or flying fighter jets.” His smile was thin.

She sighed. “I wanted to train dolphins at SeaWorld. So I get it. Plans change. Life happens.”

“For a Medina the plan is set. And it’s an honor and a privilege. Max will grow to see that one day.”

“Just like you have?”\

“Yes.” His answer was firm, resolute.

He finally stood up to face her, but he didn’t relinquish the baby. His features were fixed and stony. His eyes flashed with fire, his words tumbled out low and foreboding.

“Senna, I want Max to meet his family in Girona.”

“Okay. I’m sure we can arrange something.”

“I want to take him to Spain with me. Today.”

She stood to face him, panic consuming her.

“You can’t just take him, Marco. We can work out some sort of agreement, but he doesn’t go anywhere without me.”

“Fine, Senna. In that case, let me tell you what is going to happen.”

This should be good.

ABOUT SILHOUETTE…

“Daddy, what is a white lie?”

My father put down his spoon and looked at me thoughtfully.

“Why’d you ask, Princess?”

“I heard you talking yesterday and you said ‘one more white lie isn’t going
to make a difference.’ I just want to know what you meant.”

“You heard that, huh?” My father tilted his head to study me. “It’s just a
small lie you tell when you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. It’s
nothing for you to worry about.”

My eyes grew wide. “Like when you told Aunt Rena that her pie was good even
though it tasted icky?”

“Exactly.” He smiled.

“Or when you told the man last week that you hadn’t seen Uncle Bruno and
you had?”

The Smile fell from his face and he straightened in his chair. “No,
Princess, that was a different kind of lie.”

Scrunching up my nose, I asked, “What kind of lie was that?”

My father swallowed hard before replying. “That’s the kind of lie where you
have to have a real good memory.”

As an inquisitive child, the woman known as Clarissa Solano, could never
have imagined how significant those words would become. That she would
spend years twisting the truth: hoping and praying that she would not
contradict herself and expose the secrets she keeps locked inside. Most of
the people in her life don’t really know her at all. She forces them to
swallow her lies, but she is the one who feels the bitter aftertaste of
deception. When Lane Hunter sweeps into her life, she finds herself opening
up in ways she never thought possible. He sees beyond the façade to the
woman beneath and knows instantly that he wants her. However, all is not as
it seems and when secrets and lies are exposed, it threatens to destroy
them all.

This is the first book in a series of standalone HEAs

EXCERPT

Kerr gave me an inquisitive look. “What’s this girl mean to you, Lay?”

“She’s just a case.” I confirmed as casually as I could.

“I call bullshit, Brother. If we are going to continue working on this, I
need to know what she means to you. Really, means to you,” he pushed.

What does she mean to me?

It was a valid question; one I wished I knew how to answer. I had only
known her a short time, but she had come to mean a fuck of a lot to me. The
thought of anything happening to her made me want to rip my heart out of my
chest. Knowing now that she was living a life that was not her own, made me
want to claim her in a way that she would never be lost again. I decided to
choose my words carefully. The last thing I needed was shit from my brother
and another lecture from my dad.

“Remember when I was in my freshman year, and I was going out with Molly
Anderson? You offered to drive her home for me and you…”

“Okay, Lay. I know where this is going,” Kerr groaned and rolled his eyes.

“Well, you know how I didn’t speak to you for over a month? ”

Kerr cringed a little and began to sway back and forth on his heels,
looking just as fucking guilty as he did back then.

“Yeah, of course I remember, how the fuck could I ever forget?”

“Well, if you so much as lay a finger on her, you are dead to me.”

Kerr sucked air between his teeth. “You mean like dead, dead?”

“Dead. Dead.” I reiterated, grinding my own teeth just in case he was
somehow missing the point.

“Fan-fuckin-tastic,” Dad groaned. “I’ve been waiting nearly three years for
you to get your head out of your ass and start living your life again, and
the one fuckin’ girl you shouldn’t be anywhere near is the one you want.”

The room went silent as all the air was sucked clean out of it. I closed my
eyes and fought the burn. I could not believe my father would choose to go
there. Kerr cleared the emotion from his throat and placed his hand on my
shoulder.

“Well, it looks like we’ve got a job to do,” he told me with a soft smile.
