ROME - A MARKED MEN NOVEL
BY JAY CROWNOVER
Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.
Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.
Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .
What happens when you have a strong man who is used to taking care of his family, taking care of business, and used to being a hero, and then none of that is true anymore? You get Rome Archer.
Rome has just come home from his final duty at war to find that everything has changed. He is no longer needed to take care of his brothers. He has no work obligations. So he finds himself lost and drowning his sadness in the bottom of a bottle every night. Rome knows he needs to snap out of it, but with his PTSD nightmares, and lack of knowing what is next for him, he can't seem to let go of his despair.
When he meets Cora under interesting circumstances, he thinks she is a sassy little thing with a big attitude. Cora is the one that breaks Rome out of his funk and makes him smile and laugh. Their paths keep crossing and neither one can deny the intense attraction they feel towards each other. Cora has been hurt badly in the past and swore she would never let anyone break her heart again. Rome isn't her idea of a perfect man, not even close, but he may just be the perfect man for her.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.
I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.
