GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Always the bridal consultant, never the bride. That was former bad girl gone business professional, Pearl Walker’s life until she put her hands on Tyson Morgan while measuring him for a tux.
Tyson was happy being a miserable man, taking care of his family’s land, and not involved with a woman. However, even he can’t resist the pull of attraction to the beautiful, and off limits, Pearl?
The feud between the Walkers and the Morgans had torn apart friends and families for generations. What might happen when Pearl Walker and Tyson Morgan become business partners—and more?
“To a Friday afternoon full of promise,” she said.
“What kind of promise?”
She licked her lips again. “I don’t know. Let’s drink and find out.”
Pearl tapped her glass to his and then drank. She’d taken at least two or three sips before he realized he still had his glass in the air and was watching her.
Oh, hell, he might as well enjoy this very awkward afternoon. God knew he wasn’t coming to town again for a very long time. And it had been a long time since a woman seemed to throw herself in his path. What wasn’t to enjoy about that? Except that this wasn’t just some woman. This was Pearl Walker, daughter of Byron Walker. The man had little morals and caused everyone in his wake more problems than necessary.
But watching her pick up her sandwich and take a bite, nearly did him in. Tyson sipped his beer as he watched her, and he was fairly sure he knew what kind of promise she was offering. What man couldn’t see that?
The true choice would be whether he wanted to get involved in such a thing. This was his half-brother’s cousin. Wasn’t that a little too close to family? He thought again. Really—no—they weren’t related at all, but he was at least ten years older than she was. He didn’t need that headache either; he thought as he took another sip.

In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the published author was born.
