Description:

Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It’s never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn’t even the right word.

Peter is the personification of perfection. It’s like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let’s face it–any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It’s the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn’t possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.

The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.

Money. Power. Sex.

I torched my future with a single decision. It’s like my life was taken out by a big-ass bus in one blow.

Taking responsibility for my actions will destroy my family, but choosing to cast my lot in with the Ferros will destroy me. But if siding with them means choosing Pete, then maybe there’s a silver lining in this shitstorm… Or maybe not.

The decorative golden, vertical band on the cover is also on the back of the book. The interior chapter headings also include the Ferro family crest (pictured above).

New Release: Shadows of the Past, a novel by H.M Ward and Stacey Mosteller

Are YOU dying to know which Ferro makes a cameo in H.M. Ward’s new book? The wait is over! SHADOWS OF THE PAST, a standalone novel by New York Times Bestselling Authors H.M. Ward and Stacey Mosteller, released today.

Cover_ShadowsofthePast_WebDescription:
BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHORS HM WARD & STACEY MOSTELLER

I’ve been running for four years, trapped in a past I can’t forget. I’m unable to move forward and refuse to go back. The only way to dissolve the shadows is to begin again. So I try.

Tonight will be different, it has to be. Coaxed into a tight dress that’s guaranteed to hit the floor after I find the right guy, I head out. My flatmate takes me to this new London pub that looks more like the New York clubs I’m used to, but it works. I can find someone to ease the pain for a little bit, even if it’s only one night.

When Hot British Guy spots me, there’s an instant attraction. There’s something about him besides the dark hair and beautiful body. He’s pure eye-candy, but his sharp tongue and sad eyes make me wonder. Something happened to him, I can tell. He’s lived through Hell and showed up here tonight to forget. But I’m not supposed to ask. This is a one-time thing, a hot night filled with lust that erases everything.

I can do this. I’m tired of crying, of feeling numb. This out-of-character conquest feels weird, but I go with it–until he throws me out. Shocked, I leave and cement my former hypothesis–guys suck.

The next day, he’s there looking all sexy. Brilliant blue eyes blazing, his dark hair falls in his eyes and a wicked grin twists his perfect lips.

God help me.

Genre: New Adult Romance
Type: Novel (349 pgs/ stand alone)
With: Ferro Cameo

“Beautifully written love story by two GREAT authors. Hot Brit with big dog–enough said!!! Funny, tearjerker and fabulous book!” – Violet

This book was very well written! The kind where you can just picture it in your mind as you read. It had me laughing, crying for the characters, and planning an if I ever get to there vacation!” – Mamabird1
