SKIN, SPEED, STAR, and SUIT are autobiographical new adult romance novels overflowing with '90s nostalgia, dark humor, and heart-wrenching angst.
*This series is intended to be read after 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 1
In 1997, Ronald “Knight” McKnight was the meanest, most misunderstood guy in town. . . perhaps on the entire planet. He hated everyone, except for BB Easton—the perky, quirky punk chick he couldn’t avoid.
BB, on the other hand, liked everybody . . . except for Knight. She was scared to death of him, actually. All she wanted was to marry Little Mermaid’s Prince Eric-lookalike and king of the local punk scene Lance Hightower.
But Knight was patient. Persistent. Unexpected. And once he got under BB’s skin, her life would never be the same.
A forbidden love story overflowing with '90s nostalgia, dark humor, and heart-wrenching angst, and based on a true story.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 2
Ronald “Knight” McKnight was obsessive. Possessive. Downright psychopathic. But that didn't stop BB Easton from falling in love with him. . . or from falling apart when he joined the Marines. As he left, Knight told her to “find someone better,” but she didn't.
She found Harley instead.
Harley James was a fun, flirty, tattooed mechanic whose face was as angelic as his secrets were sinful. He taught BB how to live again. How to laugh again. But would he teach her how to love again?
Over Knight's dead body.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 3
In 1999, BB Easton met her Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was hers. She knew it the moment he flashed her that shy, dimpled smile.
And he knew it too.
Hansel “Hans” Oppenheimer wore his heart on his sleeve and poured his soul into every lyric he wrote about BB. Unlike the guys she’d dated in the past, Hans showered her with tenderness, took her places she’d never been before, and showed her the type of all-consuming love she’d thought only existed in fairy tales.
But, like any good fairy tale, her road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when she least expected it . . . it forked.
A 44 Chapters Novel | Book 4
"Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint."
It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, "Good Guys Need Not Apply."
Which is exactly why I had to friend-zone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.
But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like: Why doesn't he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful? The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken's head, while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.
In 2003, I found the one thing I love more than bad boys . . .
A good challenge.
