Released April 18th, 2016


Violet

I knew at a very young age that I wasn't normal. I may look normal. I may act normal. But I am not normal, not in the head at least. Wait, that sounds bad.

When I started kindergarten, I was able to pick out all 50 states on a map. By first grade, I knew all of the names of all of the students and teachers in my entire school. My dad and I always watched football on TV together. When I turned seven, he took me to my first Miami Dolphins game. I started calling the plays even before they were made. And by the time I was 10, I could tell you what happened on any day of my life without thought. I had total recall, no hesitation, no conscious thought.

I’m not autistic. I’m not a savant or a genius. It’s more than a case of photographic memory. In fact, I don’t memorize anything. I have Hyperthymesia. Plain and simple: If I live it, hear it, or see it – I remember it. No exceptions.

Pike

I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a cop. Not just any cop, but a detective. Chasing bad guys and taking down mobsters. But like my good buddy, Mick, says, “You can’t always get want you want.”

So instead of arresting criminals and keeping the streets safe, I am dancing in a dingy club, making a living shaking my ass and pulling dollar bills out of my crack. Not the life I grew up wanting to lead. Not what I expected or hoped for myself.

But maybe if I wait it out. If I hang tight, it will all be worth it in the end. I will get what I came for and move on. I will earn my future and pave my own way. What is that he says? “If you try sometimes…you get what you need.” From your lips to God’s ears, Mick.

**STANDALONE. No Cliffhanger! Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is recommended for readers over the age of 18.**

I turn to get into my car and I can feel Jordan at my back.  He’s so close, I can feel his body heat. It’s clear that he doesn’t want this night to end as much as I don’t.  I’m dying for him to kiss me dirty, but I know when the time is right it’s going to be magical. I slide into the driver’s seat and he leans in for one last kiss.  This time on my cheek.  He’s getting closer! He stands back up and starts to back away, hands in surrender.
“You better go before I lose control.  I’m barely holding on here, Violet.”
I smile.  Just his admission is enough.  But then I see his hand trying to discreetly adjust himself, and now I know my earlier thoughts were correct.  I’m scandalized and pleased at the same time. Knowing - seeing proof - that he is turned on because of me, lights my body on fire, and my panties are suddenly very wet.
“Goo…Good night!”  I say one last time, stumbling over my words and too embarrassed by my body’s reaction to make eye contact.  I really need to go before I do or say something stupid. 
“Soon, sweetheart,” is the last thing I hear from his lips, and I spend the night wondering what exactly he is promising.

Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn't always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida - Go Gators! - I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an outpatient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children. 

So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!

I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some "me" time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don't discriminate - a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.

Sheriff Tully Barrett never knew trouble had such a pretty face. Brianna Dumont never knew the law could be so handsome and hardheaded.

Pampered and privileged, Brianna Dumont escapes the life she’s always known in an effort to clear her father’s good name. She arrives in Baker City, Oregon, intent on selling her father’s shares in a mine. Only the mine is a bust, her father’s partner is a crusty ol’ coot who hates women, and the sheriff in town is determined to keep her behind bars.

With good friends around him, a small ranch of his own, and a fulfilling job as sheriff, Tully Barrett loves his life. Then an exasperating woman shows up, making demands and driving him crazy. No matter how hard he tries to ignore her brains and beauty, she works her way under his skin.

Her jaw dropped open as she gaped at him. “This is ridiculous. Remove these cuffs and release me, this instant.”

“Not happening, your highness.”  He swung open the door to the jail and escorted her through the office back to the cells. No one else was in the building, something for which Brianna was grateful. Mortified to be manhandled on the way to the jail, she certainly didn’t need any spectators to her unexpected imprisonment.

Tully marched her into a cell then removed the cuffs. A smile played around the corners of his mouth as he slammed the door and turned a key in the lock. “You’re under arrest.”

Furious, she spluttered in protest. “For what? I have done nothing more than demand you carry out the responsibilities of the job the good citizens of this town entrusted into your care. You have no right…”

Tully took a step back as she grabbed hold of the cell bars and rattled them.
He smirked. “You are under arrest for assaulting an officer of the law.”

Defiant and insulted, she lifted her chin. “You deserved the slap after that impudent comment.”

Tully ignored her and continued. “You’re under arrest for assaulting an officer, being a public nuisance, harassment, and disorderly conduct.”

Incensed, she rattled the bars again. “I did no such thing, and you know it. This is an outrage. You, sir, are a bully and a beast! I demand an immediate release. Wait until your superiors hear about this. I’ll have you removed from your position. In fact, I won’t stop until the governor of this state has you tossed in prison!”

“Good luck with that, sweetheart.” Tully stalked over to the door, leading to the jail’s office, his gaze hard and penetrating. “Your time might be better spent reflecting on how you ended up in here, Miss Smarty Pants.”

USA Today bestselling author Shanna Hatfield writes character-driven romances with relatable heroes and heroines. Her historical westerns have been described as “reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian” while her contemporary works have been called “laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way.”

Convinced everyone deserves a happy ending, this hopeless romantic is out to make it happen, one story at a time. When she isn’t writing or indulging in chocolate (dark and decadent, please), Shanna hangs out with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller.

Excerpt:

Cassandra, now a tall twenty-two-year-old with curly black hair and a caramel complexion, is sitting on a couch with Brittani, a woman of the same age with short brown hair. They are in a trendy, West Village-type apartment, wrapping up Brittani's glasses and packing them in cardboard boxes.

“Time has passed so quickly,” Cassandra says. She is wearing large diamond earrings, a butterfly necklace, and trendy Cachel clothing. “I can't believe we've already graduated from the Fashion Academy. It seems like we just moved here yesterday.”

“Yeah,” Brittani says. “I can't wait to move to Cali. The condo Daddy bought me is gorgeous.”

“It goes perfectly with your brand-new Jeep.”

“I know,” Brittani says. “It's so beautiful. I can't wait to drive cross-country in it.” She gets up, walks over to the window, and peers outside at her parked Jeep Wrangler. She is wearing a short designer miniskirt and a low-cut blouse. “God! I just can't stop looking at it.”

“To think, next week, I'll be the president of Cachel legendary fashions,” Cassandra says. “It's so exciting. I'm going to be one of the richest women in the world.”

“White is just so me. This car is perfect,” Brittani says.

Cassandra puts the last mug away in the box. She gets up from the couch and walks into the bathroom. The bathroom door is open. Brittani walks back over to the couch and tapes up the box.

“So, what are you doing this afternoon?” Brittani asks.

“Nothing much. I'll probably stay in and work on some sketches.”

“Oh!” Brittani says. “Well, I'm going shopping with Melissa today.”

Cassandra comes out the bathroom and is brushing her hair. Her eyebrows started to crunch together. “Really? Where are you guys going?”

“I'm not sure, probably Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s.” Brittani stops to think for a moment. “Do you want to come?” she asks.

Cassandra walks back into the bathroom, wondering how genuine the invitation is. “Maybe. For an eighteen-year-old, Melissa has a lot of opinions,” she says.
Brittani walks over to the kitchen area. Cassandra’s cell phone rings. Brittani answers it. “Hello …yes. Hold on. It's for you.”


“Obviously!” Cassandra laughs.

“Hello,” Cassandra says. “Hi, how are you? Fine. Yes. Really? Well…uh, are you sure? We have a team of designers. Some have worked for various top designers. All of their credentials are in the business plan. You had eight months to review it thoroughly and assess the risks involved. No. Actually, I don't understand. We had a verbal agreement. Really! Well, I don't know what type of Cracker Jack lawyer you have, but on several occasions you agreed to the stipulations in the contract. I know you didn't sign the damn thing, which is why I had to change Cachel's showroom’s opening date twice. You know what, I'll go over it with my lawyer and I'll get back to you.”

She hangs up the phone.

“What happened?” Brittani asks.

The doorbell rings. Brittani answers the door. Cassandra sits on the couch. Melissa, an eighteen-year-old woman with long, perfectly straight black hair, is at the doorway. She is wearing a bright, gaudy Betsey Johnson crop top and a fitted pair of high-rise jeans. Quite risky, but she has just the right attitude to kind of pull it off.

“Kisses, girls!” she says.

Brittani and Melissa touch cheeks and make kissing sounds, a most unusual greeting for cousins by Cassandra’s standards. Melissa walks over to the couch and sits down. “Hey Cassandra! How are you, girly girl?” she asks.

Cassandra holds her tears back.

“What happened?” Brittani asks. “Who was that?”

“That was Mr. Phillips, the main investor in Cachel. He backed out of the deal.”

“What? He can’t do that,” Brittani says. “Didn't you have some type of contract?”

“We had a verbal agreement. And for about six months, he's been holding on to the investment contract. He's been having his lawyer redraw it to suit his needs. He sent it back to me a couple of times and I had to ask for a few things to be changed that seemed unreasonable in terms of profit distribution and decision making. I thought we still had a deal. We are at contract!”

“So what are you going to do?” Melissa asks.

“I don’t know.” A silence falls over the room. “Without his investment, I can't open Cachel,” Cassandra says.


“You should just ask your parents for money,” Melissa says.

“Yeah. Whenever I need something, I just ask my Dad,” Brittani chimes in.

“I can’t. It's not that simple. My parents are retiring soon. I don't want to burden them. They’d probably have to mortgage their house for this”

“Listen,” Melissa says. “I know a supermodel, Milan, who goes to my school. She’s on the cover of Rogue this month. Super sweet. I’m sure if you two met she would help you out. The question is, What would you do with that? I mean, Milan could totally put you on the map. And if she does, what would you do for me?”

Cassandra stands there, thinking. How forward is this?, she wonders.

“I don’t know. I mean, celebrity endorsement and getting a supermodel to even do a social media campaign could be amazing. What would you want for that?”

“I don’t know. Maybe be in charge of your social media and press campaign.”

“That is insane. This is my life, not a movie. What do you know about social media and the press?”

“Umm. Just think about it, Cassandra. My aunt is a PR exec,” Brittani says.
"Listen, I have over 200,000 followers on the Gram. Plus I have my own T-shirt line out of a showroom downtown my mom hooked me up with. We are going to be in Urban and Bloomies next quarter. I know a little something about the fashion biz. Don’t sleep on this, girly girl, Cassandra. Ambition has no age! B, it’s 12:45. We have to go,” Melissa says.

“I have a 1:30 hair appointment with Franz,” she tells Cassandra. “I want to go to Bloomingdale’s. Oh! And I think Neiman Marcus has a new line I want to scope out.”

Brittani and Melissa walk to the door.

“Like, last week, my mother told me that I was invited to her obnoxious friend's birthday party,” Brittani says. “So now I need a new dress.”

Melissa opens the door and walks out. “Eww! I hate when my parents make me go to their lame friends’ parties like I have no life. So waiting for college…”

“I am out of college and I still have this problem. Wait!” Brittani says. She turns to Cassandra. “Sure you don't want to come?”

“I’ll pass,” Cassandra says. She curls up on the couch, feeling slightly depressed.


“Bye-bye!” Melissa and Brittani leave.
