We’re hosting an excerpt from contemporary romance novel Love/Life: Hot in Houston.

Book Excerpt

He had loved her from the second he saw her. Not many girls were into motorcycles and cars, but she was and she put some of the guys to shame. She was fearless and that really made her stand out in his eyes. He’d fallen for her the first time they kissed. Maybe that was the reason he had

overlooked it when he caught her dancing topless for some guys at a house party last summer. Or

the time she was in the bathroom and he had read a nasty text message from some guy named D.B.

He loved her, but he couldn’t take this crap anymore. When he got to the lobby he had no idea where to go. He had about seventy dollars on him, but that wouldn’t buy a ticket home. So he was stuck there until he figured something out, or Adrienne called and apologized. Whichever came


“Is everything okay?” Jasen said as she walked into the kitchen. Adrienne was looking out the



“Well it didn’t sound fine from upstairs. What is he talking about with you and dad’s friend?

Who picked you up at the airport? Was it David?”

Adrienne nodded. “He’s so exaggerating over that. Nothing happened, really. And why were you

eavesdropping on me?”

“I wasn’t exactly eavesdropping, Aid. You guys were yelling. Be glad your mom was in the

shower, or she would have heard, too. Look, I’m not going to get into your business, but messing

around with David is dangerous. He’s married, and Vivian is a bitch. She would have no problem

going to dad; you know that, right?”

Author Bio

bio_picBorn and raised in Longview Texas, Renee’ is the youngest of six children. She began reading at an early age, and that love has yet to fade. Her favorite book as a child was Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White and as a teen The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. She later found Jackie Collins, John Grisham and more recently Olivia Cunning. Her bookshelves overflow with their well developed characters, clever, sexy, exciting story lines and beautiful

Though becoming a writer was never something that she endeavored to be, it did come to her in the form of a dream. After getting encouragement from some friends in 2008, she set about writing “love/life”as a romance story for the new millennium. Four years, a divorce and a spectacular new relationship later, she finished a quasi romance/erotica story of the Hawthorne sisters and their sin-sational lives.

In her spare time, Renee’ enjoys golf, movies, hanging out with friends and spending time with her family. Her all-time favorite movie is A Time to Kill starring fellow Longview alum Matthew McConnaughey. Others include Boondock Saints and all of the Daniel Craig 007 movies.
She loves music, and her Ipod is a mix of indie, alt, pop, and maybe even a country song or two (think fellow Texans Steve Earle or Pat Green). Television is a rarity, but comes in the form occasionally of BBC America’s Top Gear, Duck Dynasty or the brash and funny Daniel Tosh of Tosh.0. She also lays claim to the title of #1 Dallas Star’s hockey fan (just ask to see the tattoo for proof).
She currently resides in the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex with her family and a cat that thinks she’s a dog.
