Meeting the A-list actor is surreal, but Paige finds his brother, Kellen, far more captivating. A chance run in with Kellen brings an expected friendship and even more unpredictable romance. When the time comes for his inevitable return to LA, Kellen asks her join him in California. Paige quits her job for the fresh chance at love. But boarding the plane brings more changes than she'd ever thought possible.
Kellen is surrounded by a life of privilege and fame. With a rich family and famous brother, it's not always easy to see who wears a mask. Then he meets the what-you-see-is-what-you-get-Paige. He doesn't know how, Kellen just knows he wants to be with her. But wealth and fame have dark consequences for Kellen's family, and keeping Paige safe from the people out to ruin the Richards won't be as easy as he expects.
With everything stacked against them, can Paige and Kellen learn to love one another for who they really are?
"Don't 'hi Lil' me, Ms. Reed. You don't go out on dates with Grey Richards and let your sister find out from the national news."
Paige rolled her eyes to the ceiling, flicked off the television and returned to the kitchen. Standing on tiptoes, she pulled the toaster down from a cabinet. "That wasn't national news. Channel four is local."
"Big difference. Seriously, Paige, a date? And you didn't tell me?"
Her early jobs included customer service, daycare teacher, conversion analyst for a major OTC pharmaceutical company and travel agent. But after her daughters were born, focus changed from working outside the home and servicing clients to raising the children.
Reading was an important part of growing up. RM's parents read to her every night, and she learned early to develop a love for books. That, combined with a healthy imagination, was the perfect mix for RM. At the age of ten, she picked up a pen and paper and wrote out her first novel. "It was awful," she says now. "I had so much to learn." But it birthed the lifelong passion for writing.
Though the first twenty years of writing were spent as an on again, off again hobby, RM always felt drawn back to it. Finally, when her oldest daughter was born, something clicked inside. "I just knew, and I don't know why that was the moment, I was supposed to be writing."
Her first published novel, Matter of Choice, was released in January of 2014. She writes both clean contemporary romantic suspense and clean romantic paranormal thrillers.
When she's not writing, she enjoys time with her husband and daughters in Michigan. She loves to travel, especially to Walt Disney World, and is addicted to Ghiradelli chocolates.
