A sexy romance. A twisted mystery. One mistake can change everything.
On a sweltering summer day, Daisy Aldridge knocks on the wrong door. Yanked inside. Trapped and pressed against her only means of escape she spirals into a panic. Years ago she suffered an assault. Alone and afraid, she kept it hidden and dealt with the emotional aftermath in her own way.
But this time she’s not alone. She’s helped by a man who seems vaguely familiar. Roy Blackwood is massive, muscled, powerful, and controlled. She tells herself she wants nothing to do with him.
Roy sees through her resistance. He wants her. Needs her. He promises to find the identity of her birth parents and unveil the person who leaves her anonymous gifts. And most important of all, earn the love and trust of Daisy Aldridge..
A standalone, full-length romance.
Rebecca Trogner started writing her first novel after watching True Blood. Of course it was about vampires and thus The Last Keepers Daughter was born. The next, The Last Guardian Rises, continued the series. Her latest book, Secrets In Our Scars, is a contemporary romance and a lot spicier. She’s working on her fourth book with the help of her rescued animal pets.
An Interview with Rebecca Trogner
- What would you like your readers to know about you?
I’m terrible with grammar. Just the worst. I’m so thankful for my editor. For years I let that hold me back until I found some amazing human beings that knew how to organize my word salad writing. How wonderful!
And I appreciate my readers. I know that sounds cliché, but it’s true. Writing is a lonely endeavor. It can take two years from start to finish. By the time a book is published, I’m writing another. It’s a wonderful feeling when I get an email or notification from a reader telling me they enjoyed my book.
2. What inspired you to write this genre?
I’d written two fantasy books and I wanted to try a real–world setting. Romance mixed with mystery is so much fun to write. And it reflects our lives. Almost everyone wants to be loved and understood. The story is about how we get there.
3. What is the message you would like your readers to take away from your work?
I don’t have a grand message. I would like readers to enjoy my work. We all have busy lives and for someone to take the time to read my book is a wonderful thing.
4. Do you have any special “rituals” that you do as you get ready to write?
Coffee is a must. I like to write in the morning. I have a favorite chair in the family room next to a wall of windows. As I’m thinking I’ll look out into the woods and work out the various scenarios. I need quiet. Some writers like music, but I get too distracted by it.
5. Did any specific authors inspire you to become a writer?
Particular books had a huge impact. I started reading at a young age. My parents always had books around the house and they encouraged me to read anything I wanted which explains the list below.
Jaws, Peter Benchley. I read this as a tween. I didn’t understand a lot of it, but it stuck with me. It’s so much more than a book about a shark.
Helter Skelter, Vincent Bugliosi, Curt Gentry. Scared the ever loving you– know– what out of me.
Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice. My first vampire novel. She is such a beautiful writer. One in a million.
The Shining, Stephen King. I could smell the snow in the air while reading this book.
