Author: Claire Davon
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Blurb: Cool, competent Terri August is nothing like her love-crazed self of ten years earlier, obsessed with rock star Clarke Masters, who called her his stalker. But when he appears as her label’s new A&R rep, she’s shocked to find he doesn’t know her. Her logical side tells her to stay away from him, but every time she looks into those familiar emerald eyes, awareness sizzles along her nerve endings.
Clarke’s substance abuse in previous years has left holes in his memory and his life in chaos. He’s looking for redemption, not romance, but his searing attraction to Terri shatters everything he knew about desire and makes him feel alive. Uncovering her secrets and facing his demons may be his only way to a new life.
Terri flipped on the living room light and then flicked it off again. The light was too stark for the truth. Instead, she opted for a table lamp she rarely used. Her hands wobbled when she turned the light on, and she dropped onto the sofa in the hopes sitting down would conceal the shake in her body. She might have been standing, naked, on a snow-covered mountain.
“This is no time for games.”
His voice was flat and emotionless. She had gotten used to his lilt, the pleasure emanating from within when he spoke to her. This harsh quality was new and unwelcome—and her fault.
“I am not playing games.”
He raked one hand through his hair, misery etched into the downturned lips and creased brow. Lowering his arms, he stared at her, and the pain in his eyes made her want to go and hold him.
“I tried all the way here, and I don’t remember you.” He gestured to the file folder. “You would think I would. Tyris is an unusual name.” He tossed the dossier onto her coffee table. The damning folder skittered across, spilling its contents like a dropped purse.
Moonlight glinted off his strong body, casting shadows throughout the room. He began pacing, back and forth across the short hallway between her kitchen and dining room, until she wanted to scream at him to halt.
“An old friend of yours with dark hair and bright red lips moved to Ontario. Remember who I mean? Did you know that? I use the term ‘friend’ with sarcasm.”
She jerked upright. That could only be one person. “Do you mean Lola?”
He nodded. “That sounds right.”
“No. She went to Fullerton, not Ontario. She…oh…”
She was even more ashamed of herself for not telling him the truth as soon as they’d become friends. If not then, she should have told him after they were lovers. She had owed that to a man who fought his demons and won. She needed to reveal her own shameful past, and instead she had run from the idea. She had made him believe she was some perfect person, when she was no better than he was.
“She told me about our past. My little stalker. God, I feel like an idiot.”
Claire can’t remember a time when writing wasn’t part of her life. Growing up, she used to write stories with her friends. As a teenager she started out reading fantasy and science fiction, but her diet quickly changed to romance and happily-ever-after’s. A native of Massachusetts and cold weather, she left all that behind to move to the sun and fun of California, but has always lived no more than twenty miles from the ocean.
In college she studied acting with a minor in creative writing. In hindsight she should have flipped course studies. Before she was published, she sold books on eBay and discovered some of her favorite authors by sampling the goods, which was the perfect solution. Claire has many book-irons in the fire, most notably her urban fantasy series, The Elementals’ Challenge series, but writes contemporary and shifter romances as well as.
While she’s not a movie mogul or actor, she does work in the film industry with her office firmly situated in the 90210 district of Hollywood. Prone to break out into song, she is quick on feet and just as quick with snappy dialogue. In addition to writing she does animal rescue, reads, and goes to movies. She loves to hear from fans, so feel free to drop her a line.
