The
debut novel of a masterfully emotional, high stakes trilogy that will have
readers forfeiting tradition to gamble with love…
December and Austin have a traditional, storybook marriage
complete with defined roles. Married young, they’ve shared nearly a decade of
passion and love. December’s submissive nature is perfectly suited for her
husband’s authoritative, yet adoring personality and he seamlessly holds the
indisputable role of head of the household.
But Austin harbors secrets, and the pressure of losing his job
makes those festering skeletons impossible to ignore.
Turning to alcohol instead of his wife, Austin finally drives
December into the arms of their closest friend, Cord, despite her intense
loyalty. Cord has loved December since the day they met. His moral compass is
challenged and lines are blurred when Austin steps aside and insists Cord take
his place.
Forfeiting
all, Austin must face a harsh truth. Take control of his life, or forever lose
the woman he loves. 
 
WARNING: This
book contains subject matter suitable for mature reading audiences. Some
content may be offensive to sensitive readers. Degrees of Separation is a
ménage trilogy with many emotionally graphic encounters and challenging
situations that break the rules of traditional romance.

Excerpt:  
 
It was like he no longer saw her, just looked right through her,
when she used to be all he could see in the whole world. No matter what she
did, he stayed away—alone—wandering through the house at night and sleeping all
day. She had pride too, and he’d been chipping away at it, scarring her with
deep tattoos of doubt.
Something happened to a woman when her husband no longer touched
her. First there were the superficial frustrations of unrequited desire, but
then it became something worse. The insecurity, fear, and uncertainty ate away
at her insides.
Her self-esteem fractured, perhaps beyond repair. Tiny little
shards of self-worth were all she had left. Even if he came to her now, begging
and full of apologies, she feared someone might get cut.

 

This rut seemed to get deeper and darker every day. She was
losing sight of the light and worried she’d never see herself out. She needed
to feel alive, feel something. She needed to reclaim control and pull herself
back to her feet, which was why this job with Cord was imperative.
