Dare is the MMC, one who has some pretty twisted, dark grey, “dare” I say black morals who won’t stop at anything to get what he wants. I’ll have to remember to leave some gaps in my schedule going forward so I have a little room for playing with new ideas. Next year, Silvan and Sophie will be officially joining my Coastal Elite series (and the story rebranded to just 𝙎𝙪𝙧𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 with some added content featuring another Coastal Elite couple), but their story by itself can be read as a standalone, so you can read their book even if you’re not reading my Coastal Elite series (you totally should though, Dare is cray cray and it’s a lot of fun). Somewhere between ruining lives, framing people who had had the misfortune of getting in the way of his relationship with Aubrey and dishing out punishments, the guy attended his classes and examined the ranks of his nerd army like Napoleon would. Don’t get me wrong- he does very bad, wrong, not okay in the real world (and to some not even okay in an imaginary one) things to others and to our heroine Aubrey.

If you read Sophie’s Surrender last year, you’ve already read Sophie and Silvan’s story, but the Coastal Elite re-release includes exclusive bonus content. And that’s why their whole messed up dynamic works- the truly see and understand one another and they trust the other to safely hold their hearts, even if Dare has hers locked away in his psycho box. For example, when she falls asleep at Dares and she wakes him up from a nightmare, what was that about?Dare putting a leash on his psychopathy to spare Aubrey's feelings and ensure she had no reason for being jealous was so chivalrous. My co-author and I wanted to release it early as a COMPLETE standalone because when the story releases in my Coastal Elite series, it will be book four. I couldn't get enough of him, and if nothing I've said thus far has put you off, you'll probably feel the same.

Wrapped in Red will not be released on its own, so if you want to own that one, either this Christmas collection or the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe anthology are the only places to get it. He saved my life that night, a beautiful dark angel slicing through my fear and the water, dragging me from its deadly clutches. Their self-aware and unapologetic- they more than accept their twistedness, rather, they expect everyone else to adapt to their needs and methods- including the heroine.Dare unveils himself slowly, bit by bit, careful not to put Aubrey off by showing his full psycho too soon. Both grown up with money, these kids seem to think they can get away with anything and the family lawyers will make it all go away. Sleeping Beauty is the bonus scene in this book, it’s from Aubrey’s POV and follows her and Dare (who you may remember had a cameo appearance at Silvan’s party in the beginning of the book) the night Sophie and Silvan met. Soooo… if your man doesn’t use a nail gun to crucify the person who insults your ass online is he really all that into you?

Dare unveils himself slowly, bit by bit, careful not to put Aubrey off by showing his full psycho too soon. I love these end-of-year wrap-ups because they give you a chance to pause and really look at all you’ve accomplished in a given year. Stitches got an anniversary edition this year (which includes the short story featuring our throuple that is in A Valentine’s Day Treat so you have all the Seb/Moira/Griff words all in one place).

I am a fan of dark romance, and this was dark but usually by the end I don’t feel like the Fmc is still scared. Considering he's allowed to be with other people and has been pretty active smexually, I thought he was going to continue being the hoooooar that he's been. I was like what is he going to do next to her, that she’ll ignore or turn it into a declaration of love. It probably won’t be for everyone, it’s a bit more sexually adventurous than my average book with a much higher percentage of spice, but just like with all my books, the spice isn’t gratuitous.

And it works because even if he is certifiable and psycho and she is his willing lamb, they trust one another. If you go through spoilers, you know this is not a traditional romance, but… it simply doesn't matter.He didn’t set out to make her fall in love with him, and she didn’t set out to make him jealous enough to sabotage all of her potential relationships, but that’s where these two lovebirds find themselves in Wrapped in Red. Even the reader doesn't understand the full extent of his kaleidoscope of crazy for a large portion of the story. Laura and I opted to leave her name off the cover of the discreet version (it will still be on the interior title page) for the sake of uniformity.
