Javier is a detective who loves his city and wants to keep it safe. He has a strict “no love” policy in his life. His career is dangerous and having a woman in his life would be complicated. He doesn’t want or need the distraction.

 

Fate has other plans for them. When she walked into Pure Sin, her soul called to his and he had to meet her. April was not prepared to have a man in her personal space, let alone kiss the back of her hands. His touch ignited feelings within her that she never thought were possible and she needed to explore them.

 

With a backdrop of Santa Monica, CA, the Pure Sin Trilogy delves into the lives of three best friends who made a promise to stick together. Each successful in her own right, they’re missing relationships that bring hope, love, and fulfillment.

 

Love Displayed is not just a story about finding love. It's about connections and friendship. Rebirth and finding yourself.

Love Displayed Excerpt

Excerpt from book

 Excerpt from Love DisplayedWhen I gather the courage to look up, Javi is staring at me, and I can’t decipher the meaning behind his eyes. There’s a myriad of emotions swimming in those gorgeous brown eyes. I want to run and escape to the safety of my car, but I sit there, rooted to my seat, waiting on his response to me presenting my story. His words are soft, and his voice is filled with something that I recognize as torment when he asks,

“April, may I hold you? I need you in my arms right now. Please let me hold you?”

He places his glass down on the small table next to the couch and turns back to me with his arms outstretched. I look into his eyes and then to his open arms. The last time a man held his arms out for me, I was walking into a living nightmare. But the tenderness in Javi’s eyes makes me pause. He asked for permission to touch me. He asked for permission to invade my space and comfort me. That minute gesture of kindness feels wonderful and makes me feel safe. Who knew that something so simple could bring such sweet relief and start mending my broken pieces.

 

My eyes are in a tug of war between his arms and the pathway that leads out to my car. I’m struggling and I know he sees it. One palm slowly comes to my face, and I instinctively flinch. I notice the difference immediately. His large, calloused hand is warm and inviting, so I close my eyes and press my cheek into it, relishing in the comfort that he’s offering. He’s saying through this connection that he won’t hurt me. I swallow past the lump in my throat as the tears roll down my cheeks. I take a deep, shaky breath and sigh, not sure if I’m deserving of such tenderness. My heart tells me I can trust this, but if I am deserving of this, why did Karl do what he did? I know that I’ll never have that question answered, but it’s one of those things that sits in the back of my mind.

 

April finds a love with Javi that makes her feel safe. Her past invades her present and the possibility of losing her newfound happiness scares her. She refuses to be the woman that she was, and she will fight for her happiness with everything she has. Javier wants to protect not only her heart, but he is also determined to protect the woman he has helped her discover.
