It’s funny how real characters can become to you, isn’t it? Whenever I write a series, I feel like these men become family to me. And I gotta tell you: I’m so happy to be spending time with the Foster brothers again…
It’s time for Lagan’s story, and it’s a beauty. Lagan is a paralegal, but he’s also a part-time law student. In itself already a challenging combination, but even more so because one of his professors, Killian Evans, absolutely despises him. Well, that feeling is mutual.
But as we all know, the line between fierce hate and fierce attraction is a blurry one, and Lagan and Killian are about to discover this as well…
Expect lots of banter in this one, an age gap, my usual dose of hurt/comfort, and two men who find out that they have much more in common than they thought. Loathed – Lagan will release October 16, so preorder now.
Below, you can read a first little excerpt.
Killian waited until everyone else had left, then crossed his arms and sat down on the edge of his desk. “Did you get your paper done?”
Lagan raised his chin. “Yes. I submitted it twenty seconds ago.”
“I’m sure I don’t need to warn you that the chances of you getting a passable grade based on the work you did during class are abysmally low.”
Lagan’s jaw tightened, his eyes narrowing. “And here I thought you’d be judging the papers on their quality, not on how long each student spent on them or how long before the deadline they were uploaded.”
Killian’s cheeks heated, which annoyed him to no end. How did this man have the power to make him blush when nothing and no one else could? “Of course I will. I merely advising you that the chances of success are small.”
Lagan shrugged. “I haven’t failed a class yet.”
“That depends on your definition of failure.”
“All my grades have been passing. I haven’t had to redo one single exam or paper.”
Now it was Killian’s time to shrug. “If that’s what you call succeeding. Personally, I would set the bar a little higher.”
“Passing is passing. I wish I had the time and the energy to go for an A+ and everything, but alas. I have a full-time job and a life.”
“As does everyone else in this class, and yet they somehow seem to manage. No reputable law firm will want to hire you if you graduated from law school with such a low average.”
Lagan quirked an eyebrow, putting his hands on his hips. “You mean like Roberts, Smith & Reed? The highly rated law firm I work for right now?”
After Lagan, we have one story left: Nordin’s. OMG, I cannot wait to write that one. It will be SO much fun! Nicked – Nordin is up on preorder already as well and will release in January.
