Blurb

Sometimes you get what you need.

Damien Sinclair has witnessed more than his share of love's ugly aftermath—first as a child of quarreling parents and these days as an acclaimed divorce attorney. His solution? Control. From his immaculate, organized penthouse to his monochromatic wardrobe to his refusal to let anyone get too close, Damien is master of all he sees… Or so he thinks. Then an attempt on his life leaves him struggling with PTSD.

Free-spirited Harley Taylor, Damien’s childhood friend and a one-time fling, arrives on his doorstep, having appointed herself his caregiver. She’s his polar opposite and hell bent on redirecting his life. And if somehow that life might expand to include her for the long term, even better. Either way, the man needs to learn not to take himself so seriously. If that involves a prank or two, so be it.

Interacting for the first time in a decade, Harley and Damien find their attraction still smoldering. But to what end? Is Harley the shot of color Damien needs to disperse the black cloud that plagues him? Or are they destined to destroy each other all over again?






Check out my FIVE STAR review!

The Redirection of Damien Sinclair (A Pine Bluff Novel #4)The Redirection of Damien Sinclair by Nancee Cain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Reunion of Rich Boy and Servant Girl

The Pine Bluff series features a fun, varied group of twenty-somethings living in small town Alabama. I love how each character has unique quirks and life circumstances. In the fourth installment, cranky attorney Damien fights off his budding attraction to his childhood sweetheart, Harley. It's the reunion of the over-responsible boy and the little girl with stars in her eyes.

Damien's wealthy family employed Harley's parents as cook and butler. Damien, his younger brother Angel, and Harley shared childhood spats and adventures. As teenagers, Damien and Harley fell in love, but their parents squashed their romance due to socioeconomic differences.

Flash forward to present time. Damien has just sustained a trauma involving his career as a divorce attorney, and Harley arrives to nurse him back to health. This time they don't have their parents standing between them, yet there are still haunting barriers to their love.

Harley tells Damien,

"You know, I credit myself with your success as a lawyer. Think about all those years you practiced arguing with me."

Unfortunately Damien has had too much success at helping his clients divorce each other, which has led him to be cynical and frightened about love.

Damien and Harley meet Harley's former lover, Mark, and the woman who loves Mark, Jinx. Jinx owns a big dog and it sounds like Mark, Jinx, and the dog will be main characters in book five.

It was the biggest goddamned dog Damien had ever seen. His tail swept across the floor like a windshield wiper.

Looking forward to future books in the series!

#IWSG Publishing Paths #writer #support #group


Happy September, writers! Join our support group to vent and celebrate this wild writing journey at our founder's blog, Alex Cavanaugh

Thank you to this month's courageous co-hosts: Toi Thomas, T. Powell Coltrin, M.J. Fifield, and Tara Tyler!

IWSG Day Question: What publishing path are you considering/did you take, and why?


I never anticipated becoming a writer, much less an author, but now eight published novels sit on my shelf.

After writing a few stories, I wanted to publish my debut novel, With Good Behavior, in 2009. I bought a print book about publishing (remember print books?) and took a stab at writing synopses and queries for agents and publishers.

Rejections rolled in--disappointing then but not surprising now after I have learned more about the finicky publishing business. 

Luckily, I discovered a new small publisher that specialized in romance novels like mine, and I was THRILLED when they accepted my novel!

Omnific Publishing taught me so much about editing and marketing, and we published four novels together.

In 2014, I sought more creative control for my New Adult romance trilogy, so I ventured into self-publishing. But the awesome author friends (including critique partner Nicki Elson), editor, and book designer I've met through my publisher have been instrumental in creating four novels.


I love self-publishing! Though it's a challenge to spread the word about my books, I enjoy the speed and entrepreneurial spirit. And there are so many cool writers and readers like YOU I've met along the way.

Cover Reveal: CONNECTION by @MJLocklear #paranormal #romance



Title: Connection 
Author: Morgan Locklear 
Genre: Paranormal Romance 
Release Date: October 1, 2018 
Cover Designer: Jada D'Lee Designs 



Olivia McCourtney knows a terrible secret, ghosts are everywhere, and they're furious at the world. When she leaves her hometown of Savannah, Georgia, to study in New York City, she is confronted by billions of sour spirits. But on the subway train from Queens to NYU, Olivia meets Patrick, a traveler trapped on the Broadway Line. Olivia is obsessed with helping her newfound friend, but soon realizes that she's the one who needs to be saved when she draws too much attention from both the living and the dead. Can Olivia and Patrick help each other survive the perils of two different worlds that share a connection?

Congratulations to Morgan on his new release! Love the mysterious cover.







Morgan Locklear has written over six hundred songs, but Connection is his first novel. (Not counting Exposure, the book he co-wrote with his wife, Jennifer Locklear in 2014, and some rather wordy Twilight fanfiction). Connection began in November 2013 as a project for National Novel Writing Month, (NaNoWriNo). It only took four more Novembers to complete.
