Character Guest Post with Chanel Leroc, the heroine from Ryan’s Temptation

Hey, everyone. I’m Chanel, and boy, do I have a story to tell.

My life was going okay even though I’d just broken up with my long-term boyfriend and moved into a new apartment. My ex took our beloved dog, Rocky, with him, and I was missing the dog more than I was my ex. Anyway, everything turned upside down when I saw this evil, demented man attacking a woman behind a dark restaurant. I know, I know—never veer off the main street alone at night. But what else could I do? I heard a woman cry out and scream for help. I had to do something. There wasn’t time to waste. So I stuck my nose where it didn’t belong and landed on a serial killer’s hit list.

Oh my God! Right? Even though it happened to me, I still can’t believe it sometimes. It sounds so preposterous. I’m just a normal woman with a decent job and a great set of friends. I didn’t think anything horrible like that would ever happen to me. Damn, I was so naïve, but I’m nothing if not a quick learner.

The police dumped me into a witness protection program with my sexy as sin new neighborhood, Dr. Ryan Naylor. Why did Ryan come along, you might ask? Well, he was my knight in shining white lab coat. Though, actually, he wasn’t wearing his lab coat that night since he was out of the office. I think he had on a blazer, but I digress. He found me fighting for my life, and Dipper—my attacker—didn’t want to take us both on, so he ran like a coward. Thank God for that. The police secreted Ryan and me away to a sleazy motel room where they promised we’d be safe, and we were until Dipper tracked us down. I won’t tell you how he did it—read our story to find out—but we had no choice but to flee into the night and survive on our own.

Even though I was scared out of my gourd, I found something special during my time with Ryan. We clicked in a way I’ve never before experienced with a man. He was sweet, understanding, funny, and the greatest kisser ever, by far. Ooh, and his cleft chin was to die for. Still is. I don’t know how I would’ve survived with my sanity intact without him by my side. He not only became my lover, but also my best friend. I don’t mean to sound like a sap, but I don’t regret our time on the run together. It made us stronger. We learned that we’ll do anything and everything to survive. Our lives and our love are worth it.

Well, I’ve rambled on long enough. If you want to learn more, reserve your copy of Ryan’s Temptation today. It’ll be live on August 9th. In case you haven’t guessed, I’m the “temptation.” Believe me when I say you can’t get better than me—err, I mean my book. Yeah, that’s it.

Thanks for reading!


Wrong place, wrong time. Now she’s running for her life.

Beautician Chanel Leroc can wield a pair of scissors like nobody’s business. After she witnesses a murder and lands on a serial killer’s hit list, she has to figure out how to protect herself—and fast. The killer tracks her down, but her sexy new neighbor, Dr. Ryan Naylor, drives the brute off.

The police dump the pair in a witness protection program, which doesn’t last long. Either the killer has a connection to the police, or he’s far more intelligent than they realize. All Chanel wants to do is get back to her safe life and get to know her neighbor better. Instead, she and Ryan hit the road and try to survive on their own.

How will they stay alive and keep their blooming romance intact with the killer hot on their trail?
