Alone No More Blurb
Loneliness is all either Ella or Mel has felt most their lives, just as they find each other will something sinister rip them apart?
Ella is a tough but lonely woman, still broken by her past. Mel feels he needs to pay a penance for his very existence. Fate and danger bring them together and show them that love awaits both of them, if only they can survive whomever is hell bent on killing Ella.
ReviewAlone no more was AMAZING to read. I mean it sucked me in from the first paragraph to the very last leaving me very satisfied but wanting more more more, I pray she makes this into a saga or series because it just MUST go on, I must know more about Ella and Mel, oooh it is a must!
This baby starts off scary I mean jumps right into an attack and then a savior/angel who isnt really an angel saves the day. And boy oh boy is it SPICY and STEAMY. The scenes in this book could make anyone hot! WOOOEY!
If it wasn't for my body shutting down and making me go to sleep the first night I started this book, I would have been done with it within a few hours, but I woke back up and went straight to the book, it was all I could think about! I must say this is definitely a must read! And once you all read it we need to get on this author because you will want a second one as badly as I do!!! And isn't the cover just gorgeous! YES YES YES to this book!

Alone No More Excerpt
The hot water felt good on Ella's aching body. As she stood under the flow of water, all the events of the evening began to replay through her mind. She scrubbed herself harder and harder, trying to make herself feel clean and safe. All that had happened became too much, and she started to sob uncontrollably. Ella slid down the side of the shower, wrapped her arms around her legs, and just cried and cried.
There was a knock on the door. Mel called out, "Ella, are you ok? Can you answer me? Is there anything I can do to help?"
Ella tried to answer, but all that came out was some sort of wounded yelp, more of a cry of pain than a coherent answer. Apparently that response caused concern, for Mel opened the door, rushed in, and had the shower open so quickly that Ella could not even think about modesty.
Mel, still clad in jeans and tank top, crawled into the shower to examine what was wrong. When he could find no physical cause for her state, he simply sat down and pulled Ella to him, holding her and comforting her for a long time.
Gradually, Ella began to calm down, to let go of the horror she felt and she became more aware of her present situation. Despite all that she had been though tonight, she felt her body respond to the closeness of Mel. His clothes were soaked and clung to every contour of his body. He held her on his lap and still stroked her back in a calming motion. She looked up into his chocolate eyes, which, realizing the change that was occurring in her mood, began to darken even more in reaction.
Not able to take her gaze off his eyes, Ella rubbed her hands down his chest, down his wet clothes, and mumbled, "Your clothes are soaked through. That must not be very comfortable, perhaps we should get you out of them."
