She wants her past hidden...
Amy Kincaid is running from her controlling ex-husband, who will stop at nothing to find her. With a new identity and a new job as a housekeeper, she just wants to be left alone to raise her daughter. Then Eddie Fitzgerald rolls into town and turns her world upside down.
He’s in the business of exposing the truth...
Eddie Fitzgerald, L.A.P.D.'s finest, lives for his job and nothing else, until he decides to take a break at the family summer home and is held at gunpoint by the most annoying, sassiest woman to ever cross his path. But something is off about Amy, and the more he learns about her, the more he’s convinced she’s a fugitive.
When her past catches up to her, Amy has no choice but to trust Eddie. Unfortunately, Eddie has demons of his own, and struggles with the decision to protect her or uphold the law.
The truth takes them down a deadly path, and only love can save them.

My Review

Amy is hiding from her abusive x-husband who is also a cop.  She tried to seek help, however the police sided with Noland.  She decided to change her identity, and take action into her own hands to protect her daughter.

Amy is a house-sitter for one of the Fitzgerald’s summer homes.  There has been a string of burglaries in the community, and Amy is on guard.  The home was takes care of was almost broken into, but she scared them off.  Then, Eddie shows up.  Amy didn’t expect him, and holds a gun up to him when he enters the house.  After Eddie proves who he is, she eases off, and becomes the house keeper she was hired to be.

There is an attraction between Amy and Eddie.  Eddie warms up to Amy’s daughter, which makes her more comfortable.  However, Eddie starts noticing things about Amy, and he wonders if she is a fugitive.  After a horrific incident, Amy comes clean with Eddie, and he promises to help her with her situation.  The cop in him comes out, and his need to protect wins.

First off, I have loved every Fitzgerald book written.  I have been a HUGE fan of Eddie throughout the whole series, and could NOT wait for his story.  I even asked Ednah that when she wrote Eddie’s story, to name his love interest Michele, but she must have forgotten that request!!  Haha

Amy is an extremely strong character.  To take control of your own life and leave everything else behind takes a lot of courage.  Eddie has always been a protector, putting his family first at all costs.  This protection passes to Amy and her daughter, which leads to Eddie not being able to control his desire for her.

The attraction between Amy and Eddie is hot, steamy, and seductive.  Although they possess that bantering, and stubborn headedness, the desire can not be denied. 

With the hot romance set aside, Forever Hers contains an unexpected mystery on why the x husband Noland is stalking Amy and making her life a living hell.  An unexpected twist emerges through Eddie’s detective skills, which reveals how corrupt, psychotic, and disturbed Noland really is.  The plot is completely brilliant.

Forever Hers possesses all the ingredients for a fast paced, exciting read that you won’t be able to put down.  As with all the Fitzgerald books, you will fall in love for the tight, close family who is always there to help and meddle with your business.

The Space Between Cover Reveal

Book Blurb:

When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between

After a month-long dance tour through Italy, 20-year-old Leni Drago returns to Georgia to care for her great-uncle, only to find him gone, the home they shared empty and any evidence he ever existed wiped out. All that’s left is a journal she can’t open.

Jeric Winters has been searching for a piece of his past for over a year, only to reach a dead-end in Georgia. When an urgent and magnetic pull draws him out of his hotel room, he comes face-to-face with the beautiful dancer who’s been haunting his dreams day and night.

Jeric’s one to stay away from—a bad-boy, hit-it-and-quit-it type—but Leni can’t escape the fervent feelings between them. As their own existences begin to crumble around them and shadowy forms that are more monsters than men attack, they realize there’s more to the connection between them than physical fascination.

To solve the riddle their lives have become, they must embark on a journey that requires them to face their pasts and release their true souls. And they must do it fast—dark ones from another world are closing in, intent on killing them. Permanently.

**Mature Content** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations and language.

An Excerpt

     LENI – The overhead lights fell dark for the last time as I opened the dressing room door. The back exit stood open at the end of the hall, allowing in enough light from the streetlamp outside to show my way. I inhaled slowly, cherishing the musty smell of an old theater mixed with the odor of dancers’ sweat and the fragrance of white roses. I silently said my goodbyes as my feet carried me outside. 

     “Thank you, Uncle Theo,” I whispered as I left the theater for the last time. Only because of him did I even have this opportunity. I couldn’t wait to tell him all about it.

     A large, muscular body flew at me, swept me into his arms and twirled me around as though we were still on stage. Laughter bubbled out of my chest.

     “You ready to celebrate, cara mia?” Alberto asked as he set me down.

     “Celebrate that you’re finally getting rid of me?” I teased. 

     He clapped his hand over his heart, and his face fell into an exaggerated expression of pain. “Oh, Leni, you do not know how I will miss you and your mane.”

     He swatted playfully at the bottom of my curls. He had no idea how I would miss the way he said my name, drawing out both syllables, “laaaay-kneee,” like only an Italian could do.

     “But you won’t miss my heels on your toes or my arm in your face?” I said in mock disbelief.

     He took my hand and danced me down the cobbled street toward the plaza at the center of town. “You are a stunning dancer, cara mia. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.” He spun me under his arm, my duffle bag banging me in the butt the whole time. “Of course, you have become much better since becoming my partner. But everyone does.”

     He winked at me before dropping me into a dip. My bag slid off my shoulder and a hand darted beneath me to catch it. Alberto swung me up and around so that I came face-to-face with the most unbelievably stunning vision I’d seen my whole time in Italy. Which was saying a lot. His eyes—blue, I thought, though the light from the corner post wasn’t enough to be sure—enraptured me. He held my bag out with a small smile that hinted at dimples.

     “Grazie,” I said breathlessly as I wrapped my hand around the strap of my bag. He gave me a nod almost deep enough to be a bow, his shaggy blond hair falling in his face. Then, without a word, he turned and walked away. My mouth fell open. “How rude.”

     “Must be American,” Alberto said. I punched him in the arm.

     “Who goes out of their way to catch a falling object and then can’t even say ‘you’re welcome’?” I asked absent-mindedly as I stared after the retreating body that rivaled Alberto’s. No, scratch that. It totally beat out Alberto’s even on his best day.

     “What an ass,” Alberto muttered.

     “Rude, yes, but I don’t know if I’d go that far.”

     “No, I mean what an ass that man has.” He let out a low whistle.

     I laughed and admired the view as well. “I can agree with that.”

     “He’s going to Alonzo’s. Lucky us.”
