Excerpt
Aunt Doreen
takes a cake knife from the drawer, clears her throat and the two sisters
squint at each other. My body tenses. This body language usually precedes some unanticipated concession by me. Busying myself by returning the coffee tin to the cabinet, I turn to escape the kitchen before…
“Cole.”
Shit. Not fast enough. “Yes, Mom.”
Mom starts, “We’ve been talking.”
I open my mouth, but Aunt Doreen jumps in before I can get anything out. “We know that you’re a grown man now, and you’re starting a high-profile career.”
“But I don’t want my son to have a bad-boy reputation,” Mom blurts out. She cups my cheek. “I didn’t raise you to be wild.”
Her sister moves in for the kill, placing her hand on my forearm for a brief moment.
“Please be careful. Don’t get caught up in the lifestyle you’ll be offered.”
Mom drops her hand. “Promise me you won’t become one of those out-of-control stars we hear about on the news.”
My heart races. I need a cigarette. I’m flanked by two of the strongest women I’ve ever known, and their concern is both touching and intrusive. But it’s born from love. I glance from one pair of green eyes to the next and swallow.
Mom presses. “Promise me.”
I’m not giving up the perks of my soon-to-be-lifestyle—women and parties being at the top of the list. I’ve earned this. However, the set of their jaws tells me I’m not getting out of this kitchen without giving them my word.
“Promise,” she repeats.
I gauge the distance to the dining room. Too far. Mom crosses her arms, and Aunt Doreen follows suit.
Rubbing my hands up and down my legs, I mumble, “Okay, fine, I promise. I won’t get a bad rep.”
Dazzling smiles greet my capitulation. They pick up the dessert and dishes and leave me in the kitchen wondering how the hell I’m going to both honor and get around my vow.

Author Bio
For as long
as Arell Rivers can remember, she has been lost in a book. During her senior
year in college, she picked up a Danielle Steel novel … and instantly was
hooked on romance.
Arell
started writing her first novel because the characters were screaming at her to
do so. The story started coming out in her dreams and attacking her in the
shower, so she took to the computer to shut them up. But they kept talking.
Born and
raised in New Jersey, Arell has what some may call a “checkered past.” Prior to
discovering her passion for writing romance, she practiced law, was a wedding
and event planner and even dabbled in marketing. Arell lives with a very
supportive husband and two mischievous cats. When not in her writing cave,
Arell is found making dinner in the crock pot, working out with Shaun T or
hitting the beach.
Arell is a
member of the New Jersey chapter of Romance Writers of America.
