After she took the pictures and left we found out who she was and needless to say we were a little embarrassed. Well she ended up coming back to the table and after apologizing, Janet and I started talking to her about her two different series. She also writes a very popular erotic series called Finding Anna. The first book in the series Slave has become a cult classic (in my opinion). Janet read and loved Slave and I was interested in Behind Closed Doors. Here is a shot of Janet and Sherri at the event (and yes we stopped asking her to take our picture and started taking hers)
She is currently writing the second book in the Daniels Brothers series which will be coming out in 2013. The first book is about Christopher Daniels. Here is the book blurb:
Elizabeth Marshall spent the last nine years doing all the things she was supposed to do. She went to a good college. Married a man with a promising future. Elizabeth even had a nice house in a respectable part of town. There was even the promise of 2.4 kids in her future. From the outside everything looked picture perfect.
One night, six months ago, the world she lived in came crashing down. Her husband dead and her friends gone, Elizabeth moves to the small town of Springfield to start a new life for herself where no one knows who she is or anything to do with her past.
Christopher Daniels enjoys the simplicity of his bachelor life. After his divorce three years ago, he swore off women. He has no desire to change that philosophy.
When Elizabeth Marshall moves into the apartment below him in the small Victorian house, she makes him begin to reconsider the motto he’s lived by for the last three years: women are trouble. She is everything his ex wife was not and it doesn’t help that she is his wet dream come to life.
He is determined to resist her charms, however when someone starts sending threatening messages to Elizabeth, he finds himself in the role of protector. Can he protect Elizabeth and still be able to resist the pull she has on his body and his heart?
Elizabeth was in an abusive marriage that ended with her killing her husband in self defense. She has decided to leave Columbus, OH for a little town called Springfield to get away from the bad memories of her marriage and to where no one knew her or about her past. She finds a place with a widow named Jan that owns an historic old home that had been converted into 3 apartments one of which she lives in.
Chris Daniels is a little bitter after the way his marriage ended. He has sworn off women in the three years since his divorce. So he isn’t too happy when Elizabeth moves into the 2nd floor apartment to his 3rd floor at Jan’s since his libido has decided to come out of slumber at the site of Elizabeth. He notices right off the bat that Elizabeth seems skittish around him but refuses to care. And when he needs help desperately at work since his assistant just up and quit he lets Jan more or less shanghais him into hiring Elizabeth who wants a job.
These two dance around each other for quite a while, as both of their past issues keep getting in the way of either of them admitting they are attracted to each other. But after Elizabeth gets her first threat Chris’s protective instincts kick in and he wants nothing more than to keep her from harm. As there are a couple of people who would want to harm Elizabeth the mystery of who is doing some of the things keeps you guessing until the end.
The author did a great job of letting us as the reader watch both of them heal from their past pain. It was especially wonderful to see Elizabeth fight all the verbal abuse messages that constantly played in her head from her dead husband. It’s not an easy thing to get over years of verbal and physical abuse but with her own new found strength and Chris encouragement she manages to do it.
The secondary characters were also fun to meet. The author gave us a glimpse of the other three brothers which will have their own books.
