Propositioning the Iron Wraiths’ money man seemed like a good idea at the time…
Diane Donner—recently divorced pillar of polite society—is craving danger. She’s tired of playing it safe and she knows just the sexy criminal motorcycle man to proposition for a good time. Problem is, she doesn’t actually know his name.
Jason “Repo” Doe never takes risks. So when the queen of local commerce walks into his club, looking to get risky and frisky, Jason knows the smartest thing to do is save himself a headache while saving the new divorcee from her worst impulses.
But then one thing leads to another, and the memory of just-one-night doesn’t feel like enough.
Theirs is a story with no future, because how can a dangerous criminal win (and keep) a queen?
‘Beard In Hiding’ is book #4.5 in the Winston Brothers series, is a full length contemporary romantic comedy about two lost souls in their 40s, and is a companion novel to the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pie series.
If you want to get the full immersive Green Valley world experience, I recommend reading ‘Truth or Beard,’ ‘Beard Science,’ ‘Engagement and Espionage,’ and ‘Marriage and Murder’ beforehand. ‘Beard In Hiding’ contains spoilers for these four books (in specific).
Another puzzle piece in the Winston Brothers Saga
Penny Reid never disappoints. Reading any of the Winston related books are always such a joy because you get more pieces to an ongoing puzzle. Ms. Reid is an expert at slowly revealing her characters. Her books are like a continuing soap opera where you keep reading to learn more about the characters and what is going to happen next in the plot. And the writing is superb. It boggles my mind how she does it all so well.
Love this story!
What a quick tasty treat from the talented mind of Penny Reid.
As an avid fan and reader of all her stories, I always wondered about Repo and Diane. Well, Ms. Reid has given me and her readers the answer and more with this newest story.
Repo and Diane are a true opposites attract story. But when you read them together, you can see how seamlessly they fit together. Diane smoothes Repo's rough edges. Repo lets Diane be the person she wants to be and doesn't try to fit her into any mold, like her previous relationships had.
This was a delightful read, an expansion of Ms. Reid's Green Valley world and I for one was more than happy to read and visualize Diane and Repo's story in all its glory!
