BookBub Feature

Rough Around the Edges Time

(Book Two: The Protectors)

A protector whose touch is as seductive as it is dangerous.

Alejandro (Alex) Jamison grew up on the rough side of Miami. As a teenager, he was arrested repeatedly for petty crimes until a judge offered him a choice: military service or jail time. He enlisted, and it woke him up and changed his life.

Now he runs a youth center in his old neighborhood where he’s determined to prevent other young people from traveling down the path he almost took. Then, Dr. Kristen Helton walks into his life, disrupting his carefully built world.

Kristen Helton defied her wealthy parents only twice in her life: once when she went to medical school instead of taking her place in Palm Beach society, and second when she accepted a position in a free medical clinic in one of Miami’s roughest neighborhoods. Then she met Alex Jamison, a man from a different world, a man she knew her family would never accept. Despite all the reasons to keep her distance, Kristen is drawn to the haunted hero as she joins his fight to keep kids out of trouble.

Can a woman who’s always played by the rules help a renegade battle the odds and win?

My Other Identity

Patricia Lewin

Did you all know that besides my contemporary romance novels, I also write suspense under the name Patricia Lewin?

So far, I’ve written three, all of which were originally published by Ballantine Books (Random House) in hardcover, mass market paperback, and audio. Recently, I got back the rights and started releasing them in eBook format. The first of these, Blind Run, will always be one of my favorite books.  Plus, it was named one of RWA’s Top Ten Books of the year. If you like edgy books, check it out.
