Meet Bob. Bob is the guy between the lines of every love story you ever met. The lucky chance, the twist of fate, the astounding coincidence that sets sparks flying. Never seen, but always there.
Today Bob is assigned to help Jenny find love. But there is something more than bad luck working against the quirky librarian. Bob might have to save her life, before he can help her find love.
And he can’t do that from the shadows….
Let me tell you a story. Stop me if you have heard it before.
We start with a woman, it could be any woman, of any age. She is alone. She thinks she is hawks, awkward and plain, and never sees her own beauty. It’s is a cruel fact of life that it only takes one person to tell you that you are ugly, and you will believe it.
She starts in a prison. Not a real prison, well not usually anyway, but a metaphorical kind. Maybe a marriage whose passions have faded, or maybe a small town where nothing happens, or overly protective parents.
Way over there is an ambition. Maybe true love, maybe the big city, or overthrowing the evil empire.
One day our girl breaks free. She runs for her life and she bumps into this guy. If she happens to be a princess, then he is literally the first guy she meets. They hate each other. They bicker. They spark. But they make each other laugh, and by a cruel twist of fate, they end up stuck together as they embark on a quest to reach her ambition.
At some point they stumble into a thrilling situation. A chase, a fight, an accident where the handbrake fails and the parked car rolls into a ditch. Something to set the heart racing.
Then they pause for breath. They talk. They learn they aren’t so different and under all the sparks and insults is something tender and sweet. Something good and warm.
When hope wears thin, and the ambition seems so far away, the guy convinces the girl to give it one last try. To take a chance. To hold his hand and know he will be there if she succeeds or fails. And in that moment, in that one look, that one kiss, nothing else matters.

Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer…
TRU BLUE is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women’s fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.
He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover…
There’s nothing Truman Gritt won’t do to protect his family–Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. When he’s finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother’s overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she’s left behind. Truman’s hard, he’s secretive, and he’s trying to save a brother who’s even more broken than he is. He’s never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he’s less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people’s lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman’s dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he’ll be faced with his toughest decision yet.
“Several emotional topics — such as drug addiction, abandonment, infertility and unexpectedly becoming a parent — are easily woven together without making the story feel crowded or overdone. Foster writes exceptional characters that keep readers thinking long after the book is finished… The dynamic members of the Whiskey family are the foundation that holds the group together and they are exactly the reason we’re taught not to judge. Let’s hope we hear more from all of them!”

Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.
So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…
And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.
Eight brothers, one bar.
Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?
I kinda think so.
Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.
I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it—at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…
Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination—and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.
But I did.
