Surrender to Ryan Overview: 
EASY-READ PDF Format


Destiny Jones has just relocated from Brooklyn, New York, to Rosewater, Virginia. A small yet bustling city, it’s located not too far from the scenic mountain town of Whisper Creek.

After splitting up with her son’s father, who she still has feelings for, the last thing on Destiny’s mind is a relationship. 

A fling maybe, but a relationship? Never. 

But things may change when she meets the handsome war hero, Ryan Colby, during a long-overdue night out with her girlfriend. Not only is Ryan handsome and oozing with sex appeal, he’s modest, kind, and a perfect gentleman. 

_______________

But Ryan Colby is on a mission to heal his broken heart. To get his head together, he starts venturing outside of Whisper Creek, away from his business, to take up an old hobby -- and to find a woman for his bed. 

A hot-blooded, virile man, he knows he needs the softness of a woman’s body to quell the dizzying ache of his increasingly throbbing manhood. 

The woman he ultimately meets not only matches him in skill in his favorite past-time, she also matches him in the carnal need for unbridled passion. 

But there’s more to the sultry beauty than sex appeal; there’s something about Destiny Jones that leaves Ryan wanting more from her than she may be willing to give. 
_______________

As passionate sparks fly and emotions spiral out of control, two souls on a mission to ease their sexual desires and to forget their old loves, unexpectedly connect. 

Will Destiny and Ryan’s emotional realities -- and pride -- leave them trapped as simply friends with benefits? Or will they find themselves clinging to the hope of their own "happily ever after?"
__________________

Note: Though this romance is a stand-alone book, Ryan Colby's character is a spin-off character from the popular Loving Logan series -- also available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Loving Logan, PART 1 (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G82HLB0), *an Amazon BEST SELLER*, hit #1 upon initial release in the Multicultural / Interracial Romance Books category.

EXCERPT:

Surrender to Ryan

Chapter 1

“What are you going to do with yourself for a whole week without your boy?” Destiny Jones asked herself out loud. 

She had just said a silent prayer that her seven-year-old son was okay on the plane back to New York. As she pulled her 1987 Suzuki Sidekick up to her modest apartment building, she realized it had been so long since she’d had a moment to concentrate on herself, that she didn’t have an answer to that question.

Her cell phone blared the ringtone “To the Left” as she slid the SUV into its designated parking spot under the East Rosewater Gardens Apartment complex. She glanced over to see her friend Porsha’s number flashing on the LCD. 

Destiny had known Porsha Montgomery since their Fordham University days in New York City, almost thirteen years ago. College roommates, the women had long ago developed a relationship that had become more like sisters than friends. Porsha was the one who had pushed her to move from Brooklyn long after she broke up with Vincent, her son’s father. She had also helped her land the legal secretary position at the law firm in Rosewater through the staffing agency she owned, and she helped her find an apartment in her new city. 

Destiny grabbed the cell phone from her cup holder and got out of her vehicle. She loved the weather in the area. When she’d left New York over two months ago, it had been cold, but it was unseasonably warm in mid-April in Rosewater. The temperature was a welcomed 71 degrees, which felt like summer to her after a brutal Northeast winter. 

“Hey Porsha,” Destiny said into the phone. “I knew I’d be hearing from you.”

“Hey lady, and I bet you know why I’m calling, too.”

“I can just about imagine,” Destiny sighed, smiling. 

“What are you up to tonight with little man gone up to see his daddy? You are free as a bird, so what you going to do?”

BOOK OVERVIEW: 

OVERVIEW -- Heart’s Desire ... Under the Taribou Moon, Part 1:

Ciara Blakeshore didn't plan on getting fired from the New York City public relations agency she had practically built. 

She also didn't plan on flying to Taribou Island, a little-known hamlet tucked away in the Caribbean near Turks and Caicos, to lick her wounds and repair her mangled pride. But she had, and she was glad she did. While in the Caribbean, on a whim, she decides to stay and take a shot at making the tropical paradise her home. But there was one caveat to being able to remain on the island long-term: she needed residency. 

Ciara knew she could get legal status one of three ways: by getting a job; by marrying a local; or, by starting her own business. 

The first two were out the window. There was no way she was working on anybody’s job -- ever again – especially after what had happened in Manhattan. And getting married would require a husband, and that was simply nowhere on the radar. Her life was a complete and utter mess, and the absolute last thing on her mind was finding a man. 

The third option seemed to be the best: starting a business. And that’s exactly what she set out to do. 

But when she meets the handsome Gunnar Davenport, emotions run high, passion is in the driver’s seat, and her life takes another unexpected turn. The owner of Taribou Moon Oceanside Resort and Spa, Gunnar has his own plan of action for the feisty, irresistible Ciara Blakeshore. And settling down as the wife of the Caribbean’s most prominent business owner, who has his own sorted past, may be closer than she realizes.

BOOK EXCERPT

A week later, Ciara was sitting in the lobby area of the office complex of the Taribou Moon Resort waiting to meet with Gunnar Davenport. PAMELA MORRIS. That’s what the name plate on the assistant’s desk read.

“Thank you, Pamela,” Ciara said, continuing the charade as if she knew the woman from perhaps a previous office visit with Gunnar.

The older lady with the short, salt-and-pepper afro peered at Ciara over thick eyeglasses. She politely gestured for her to take a seat on the leather couch near her desk. 

“Mr. Davenport will be right out,” she said. “Can I offer you some coffee or tea while you wait?”

“No, no, I'm fine, but thank you,” Ciara said, pulling a folder from her briefcase as she sat down. 

After just a little while, Gunnar Davenport strode into the lobby. 

Unmistakable. It was the same perfect man she’d seen running on the beach.

His tall, strapping form was clad in dark linen slacks, a white t-shirt, and wide leather sandals. Up close, chiseled features, perfectly tanned skin, and a dark, wily mane made him more striking.

Feeling suddenly hot, wobbly, and overdressed in her formal business attire, Ciara swallowed hard and tried to find her voice. Her lilac linen suit consisted of a skirt that landed comfortably above the knee. The cropped jacket plunged slightly to reveal an enticing, yet respectable, peek at her curvaceous bosom. Pearls, a couple of pieces of strategically placed jewelry, and square-toed heels accessorized her nine-to-five Manhattan attire.

“Good morning,” Gunnar said, letting his eyes discreetly rake over this ravishing woman from head to toe. 

She looked too young to have any day-time business with him. And she was no island girl; he instinctively knew that. A salesperson? Hardly. She didn't have that look about her. Maybe she was there to apply for the Marketing Director’s position after all. But Pamela had said the meeting was not an interview. 

Why had she come to Taribou Moon to see him? Whatever the reason, Gunnar was pleasantly surprised to see the woman standing before him. 

She was beautiful.

BOOK OVERVIEW: 

Loretta thought back to the days when she felt pretty; she remembered a younger “her,” when she felt light-hearted and free. But life, household duties, being a single mother, and working her fingers to the bone for over two decades at a job that had been less than fulfilling, had taken its toll on her mind and her body …but not on her spirit, and not on her soul. 

She was glad she’d made the move to California -- because it was for her. It didn't have anything to do with anybody else. And, finally, she’d given herself permission to let that be okay.

She loved Bordeaux Valley, a little enclave of Napa County, filled with wine vineyards, a beautiful coastline, majestic mountains, and her childhood friend, Velma Jones. 

Nope, she didn't have one regret about picking up and leaving Detroit to start a new life. And meeting Alonzo Thornton, the handsome Italian vineyard owner --who had the unique ability to make her blush every time he glanced in her direction --had been a wonderful surprise.

But she and the intriguing man get off on the wrong foot when they meet in Baggage Claim in the tiny village airport near San Francisco. 

Will preconceived notions keep Alonzo and Loretta from exploring the depths of a fiery mutual attraction? 

Or will unbridled passion, stoked by being at similar points in life, be enough to move them in the direction of each other -- and maybe in the direction of forever?

BOOK EXCERPT: 

Chapter One. 

A bad day. Just a bad damn day! 

A lost promotion had left Shalonda Davies mad as hell. But she tried to focus on the elevator door. If she could just make it out of the office without blowing her cool and cursing her boss out, she would be okay. 

Shoving the large, dark, Jackie-O sunglasses up on her face, she took a deep breath and started the long trek from her desk toward the EXIT sign. 

While strolling the too-bright hallway with all the dignity and pride she could muster, the thought of getting home to a hot bath, glass of wine, and a pan of warm brownies calmed her just enough to make it through the whispering crowd of co-workers without breaking down. 

_______________

Shalonda didn’t know it, but the man who had just landed her coveted job promotion had been watching her all along. Diego Juarez saw her moments before at her desk fighting to hold back a mountain of tears on the brink of cascading down her lovely brown cheeks. 

Nothing got past him when it came to Shalonda Davies. The look on her delicate face pained him, because the last thing in the world he wanted to do was hurt her. Through her noticeably brainy and often tough exterior, he could see her softness. 

But the job promotion couldn’t be helped. It had been part of the ruse designed to snuff out the illegal practices of Stockton Financial. The District Attorney’s Office had been after the accounting firm for a long time. For years, the organization had been helping South American drug lords launder dirty money. But finally, the mission was almost complete with Detective Diego Juarez firmly planted on the inside under the guise of company employee. 

As Diego stared at the woman’s bountiful, voluptuous frame wiggling its way past the clump of nosy onlookers, he devised a plan of his own. 

A visit to Shalonda’s home later that evening could provide the missing piece of the puzzle needed to shut the doors of Atlanta’s largest accounting firm once and for all … and the visit could potentially get the woman he'd had his eyes on for months into his arms.
