Overview

Erin Andersen specializes in motivation. When Stephen Spence misses one too many deadlines, the publisher sends Erin to salvage the book.
He blames writer’s block, but Erin thinks he’s narcissistic, lazy, and spending too much time partying at his beach house.
When Spence sails to the Florida Keys for some undeserved R&R, Erin tags along as first mate to avoid losing the contract. After a week at sea, her disdain gives way to desire and she discovers sexy Stephen Spence can focus – when he wants to. Worse, she finds that distraction is contagious.
Fun in the sun is fine, but Erin has a job to do. Her new plan is to isolate Spence at her family’s farm in Eaton, where she grew up, and where she can control the situation on her terms.
Or can she?
Erin’s reckless compromises prove costly as the six-figure book deal slips through her fingers. She must choose between her career and her foolish heart.
Whatever she decides, she might lose both.


The first in a wonderful romance series, “Distracted” by Madeline Sloane introduces readers to Eaton, a fictional, idyllic town tucked away in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Other books in the series are “East of Eaton" and "West Wind." The second series, “Secrets of Eaton” contains the romantic suspense novels “Consequence,” “Incandescent” and “Dead Line.” The third series is the spooky “Mysteries of Eaton” and consists of “Charnel House,” “Well of the Dead” and “Skinterns.”


Newly updated by contemporary romance writer Madeline Sloane:

“Distracted,” the sweet and sexy novel that introduces the idyllic town of Eaton.

Here’s what reviewers said about Madeline Sloane’s Women of Eaton trilogy, containing the novels Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind:

5 out of 5 stars Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind: The Trilogy
“Distracted, East of Eaton and West Wind are filled with independent, strong, wonderful women. This series shows women the way they should be. Able to cope and function on their own, but increased when they add the right man to their life. Doing their job and raising their family the way everyone should, when these men happen into their world. Love comes without them realizing it but with all the bells and whistles.
I very highly recommend this series to everyone!! It's romantic, sweet, funny and will cause butterflies in your stomach. This is romance the way it should be written. Not about some woman who can't live life without a man, but a strong woman made stronger when you add the man she loves. It's a terrific series that I've read 3 times already. You will enjoy this and end with a smile.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Susan Ward
4.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Read, February 2, 2011
What a refreshing read, unlike so many romance novels of the past, which made the female lead out to be some kind of second-class citizen who could never stand up for themselves. (Many of these books I’d throw against the wall in disgust.) Madeline Sloane’s book, “Distracted,” is a pleasant surprise.
Amazon - Ruth Ann Nordin
4.0 out of 5 stars A Cute Romance
This was a cute romance. Erin is supposed to help Stephen hurry up and get his book done, which turns out to be an impossible task. Stephen’s tendency to put things off and enjoy life is cute and funny, but in real life, this guy would annoy me to no end. (And I’m laughing as I write that.) He’s hard to commit to anything. Now, like I said, in fiction, this is funny, and since it’s fiction, it works.
Amazon - Lucinda Knier
4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable
Madeline Sloane brings romance to the table with her first book! “Distracted” is cleverly written; the dialogue is well-delivered, easily readable and certainly enjoyable. I like how Ms. Sloane changed locales throughout the book as well, giving a diverse look into different regions of the eastern coast, including rural north central Pennsylvania.
Amazon - A. Moore
5.0 out of 5 stars A relaxed read - perfect for a lazy day
The main characters, Spence and Erin, though a bit predictable, are very likable. Sometimes it's just good to have a book with a feel-good ending! I am on a mission to read others by this author, and look forward to "Women of Eaton" books with storylines weaving in the same characters. I recommend for an easy, romantic, heart-hugging good time!

Meet the Author

Madeline Sloane, a full-time writer and part-time college instructor, lives in the highlands of Pennsylvania with her husband, writer Joshua Sloane. Her educational background includes degrees in communication and anthropology, and she is a professional archaeologist.

After publishing several history books, she segued into fiction as an independent author. In addition to “Consequence,” her booklist includes “Distracted,” “East of Eaton” and “West Wind.” Her books are available in print and digital format at all major booksellers. Upcoming novels in the “Secrets of Eaton” series are “Incandescent” and “Dead Line.”

Many of her novels incorporate her passion for travel, sailing, history and archaeology. Most of her characters hail from Eaton, an imaginary locale in Pennsylvania she invented, but not all: some stories feature exciting and exotic cities the heroes (and their lovers) visit during the course of their romantic journey.

Sloane and her husband enjoy traveling to the U.K. and Europe, and spend much of their time abroad in ruins, castles, cathedrals and museums. She particularly enjoys exploring old churches (including the crypts with mummies), musty libraries and authentic pubs. In the U.S., the Sloanes bounce along the East Coast, traveling from New York to Florida to visit family and friends. The couple enjoys camping, hiking and kayaking, and always includes a geocache hunt and a trip to the local ice cream parlor.

    Loved it!!!!!

    I loved it took me 2 days to read it and never put it down good chemestry between Erin and Spence!!!! It felt as if the romance never stopped between them and by the end Adin got in the way but Erin & Adin went there sepret ways. I had a feeling that when she git an R.S.V.P for the art show Spence had to be in it. I loved how the love between them grew at the middle and didn't stop. Just because he was a Playboy artist he didnt stop loving her and nither did she stop loving him.
