Publisher Description

“A hidden gem in contemporary romance” ~~ Café Bibliophile 

In SAVING ME (Previously released as SAVIN’ ME), Erik Monteague has spent the past thirteen months trapped by the memories of his scorching-hot one-night stand with Kat Owens. When she takes over his advertising account, he’s more than happy to discuss positioning… but not the kind to increase his business… the kind that will put her back in his bed and in his life. While his perfectly executed seduction gets Kat back into his bed, their emotional connection rips open old wounds and Erik is forced to either face his tragic past, or spend the rest of his life running.


Advertising executive Kat Owens has one last chance to prove to her aging grandfather she can be a success. She can’t afford to be distracted by a charming, bad-boy client she knows from personal experience delivers high-voltage sex but nothing more. After succumbing to his advances and spending a weekend in Erik’s arms, she realizes there’s more to life than a successful career and she sets out to prove to him love can be good and lasting. 

But Erik’s scars run deep and love may not be enough to save him.

Savin' Me

Very captivating love story

Awesome new author with a great new series!

I loved this story. The main characters, Erik and Kat were believable. Erik is a typical alpha male type of guy. Kat is a strong willed female set out to prove herself. The story made you laugh and cry. I would highly recommend reading this book.

Review: Heat Wave #1: Saving Me

Savin' Me by Alannah Lynne is the first book in her Heat Wave series. This story is about Kat and Erik. It is a steamy romance filled with passion, regret, second-guessing and tragic pasts. What better combination, right?

Kat has left the big advertising firm she worked for in Charlotte, North Carolina and is now working in small town Riverside, NC at a much smaller ad firm. What she did NOT expect from this career change is to come face-to-face with her one night stand that she has been pining over for almost thirteen months. This man may have just ruined her for all future encounters it was that good.

Erik has spent the past ten years in his own personal purgatory. He punished himself for what happened with his ex and has vowed to never have a relationship again. When he meets Kat in Charlotte and they spark and have their one-night stand, something changes. She may have just found a crack in his armor but she's gone when he wakes up the next day. So when he sees her at a work-function in Riverside he is floored that after thirteen months she still gets to him.

I loved this story. It was a fast flowing read with some unexpected bumps in the road for these two but it was GOOD!
