Jana is running away from her life for a very good reason. A highly abusive ex has made it impossible to keep living her life as she wants. Charming and mysterious in the beginning, her ex quickly shows there's a darker side to his love, leaving her heartbroken. She leaves him behind and tries to move on with her life, but that's not an easy task. He doesn't want to be forgotten, and he demonstrates how much through his fists. After he almost beats her to death for a second time, Jana decides it's time to disappear...for good if she can. The next time she won't be so lucky. With the help of a trusted friend, she poses as a man named Jayden and lands a job on a large ship as a galley cook. A few lies and a pile of deceit seems like a better bargain to her than living her life looking over her shoulder, terrified that every shadow holds her own personal demon.
The trick works for a while. No one sees through the disguise, mostly because no one ever cares enough to look closely at her. But that abruptly changes when the owner of the ship - a charming, outrageously sexy, confident, and dominate man - confronts her about his confusing feelings for Jayden, her alter ego. The sexual attraction between the two is powerful and undeniable, and Aaron can no longer keep quiet, despite his misgivings over being attracted to "a man". He pounces on her, his lips smashing against her own, his hands wandering her body, working their way between her legs, only to find something he wasn't expecting. Confronted with the truth, Aaron is both hurt and angry but all Jana can see is the anger. Visions of her haunted past rear their ugly head, and she flees from him before he can do more than catch his breath.
Aaron spends the night brooding over the events. He is both confused and angered by the fact that he has been lied to by someone he trusts. He wants answers, wants explanations for the lies, and a reason for the deception. But Jana is reluctant to give any. Given her past, she is slow to trust. And speaking about the events that led to her running away is extremely hard for her. She cannot reveal her dark secrets, her troubled past, not even to a man as insanely sexy, generous, and kind as Aaron. She refuses to give him any reason for her betrayal of his trust which serves to anger him more. When he threatens to toss her at the nearest port and sail away, she decides to be bold and offer him something he cannot resist: her.

About the Author
I've always known I wanted to become a writer. Even before I could hold a pencil, I was making up wild, elaborate tales for anyone who would listen. And as soon as I could write down more than my ABC's, I was entertaining my friends and family. The passion for the written word has not dimmed as I have gotten older, but life doesn't always turn out the way you expect. Finally able to have platform for my writing, I'm happy to share my passion with the world. I write a mix of everything, but currently, I'm very passionate about writing erotica and romance stories. Some of the stories are set in real life, and some are set in the world of supernatural beings and fantasy worlds, but all are filled with lots of steamy sex and passion. My stories are suitable for adults only, and it's so much better that way. I love to hear from readers, so don't hesitate to contact me if you want.
