Welcome Lashell Collins and her Pierced Trilogy!
Brought together by criminal forces, heiress Samantha Colby and Detective Joshua Pierce have come through a harrowing ordeal together and found love in the process. But now that their troubles are seemingly behind them and real life awaits, they each discover that being together is going to require a little give and take.
Still haunted by a dark secret in his past, Joshua struggles with how to tell Samantha the truth as he deals with his unease about fitting in with her wealthy family, while Samantha endeavors to build an identity for herself that's separate from her famous last name. Knowing that they come from two different worlds, both are determined to let their hearts guide them. Can they figure out how to meet in the middle and build the life – and the love – they both want so desperately?
He is silent for a while as he studies me. Then he asks, “Do you love her?” I am caught off guard by his bluntness, and I avoid his steady gaze as I swallow anxiously.
“What the hell kind of a question is that?” I grumble at him.
He chuckles slightly. “It's a very relevant, very important question, Guy. And it's the key to that question you just asked.” At his words, I look at him in bewilderment, and he continues. “If you love her, Guy … and I mean truly love her … then you will find a way to put up with just about anything in order to be with her. And that's not me giving you advice; that's not just my opinion of the situation. That's me explaining how it is. That's just the nature of love, man. If she means that much to you, you will do whatever it takes.”
Lashell Collins was born and raised in a small Ohio town. And although her Midwestern upbringing gave her a very practical outlook on life, it didn’t stop her from daydreaming about romance and love and all the special little things that make life magical.
Lashell has always loved to write and often dreamed about pursuing her passion, but like so many of us, she allowed life and circumstances to lead her down a very different path for a long time. An avid lover of both animals and flowers, Lashell has spent the last twenty years working in Veterinary Clinics and Garden Centers before finally finding the courage to take writing seriously.
She lives in Ohio with her husband and their two four-legged children, a Bernese Mountain Dog named Ben and an American Bobtail cat called Spike. She is a hopeless romantic, a huge music fan, loves to laugh and loves a happy ending.
