Thankful Author 2019- Amber Daulton

Like most people, I’m thankful for my health and the life I’m leading.
To get more personal, I’m grateful to Greg, my husband. for always supporting me, valuing my opinions, and taking me seriously when I’m being stubbornly adamant about something. But not too seriously. We’re both total goofballs.

To my cats—you make me smile and curse every day, but I wouldn’t be happy without you.

I’m grateful to Bradley Publishing, a now-defunct publisher, for accepting my first story back in 2012 and opening the doors for me in the publishing world. Books to Go Now, Resplendence Publishing (now-defunct), and The Wild Rose Press have also taken a chance on me.
ELF, my editor with the Wild Rose, has been absolutely amazing. I appreciate her hard work, her professional but kind advice, and her willingness to push me to make my books better and better. She’s not only my editor, but also my cheerleader for when I’m feeling down.
I’ve met so many authors since my publishing journey began, and I’m grateful to call several of them friends and colleagues. I’m always willing to share their news of new releases or giveaways, and they often return the favor.

My readers and fans are wonderful. Thank you for spending your time reading my books, writing reviews, and discussing them with other readers online. Your support is what every author dreams of.
My critique partners are invaluable. It’s so hard for an author to catch every error in her/his story, but critique partners always seem to find the problems. At least mine do.

There are so many people who matter to me, so thank you for everything.

Their chance encounter resulted in a steamy affair, but will his former gang and a parole officer tear them apart?


Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life. That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcée behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.
Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.
When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves. Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?


“Which one is your car?” She glanced around the crowded parking lot. A few streetlights pushed back the darkness and shadows. The restaurant served customers until midnight on the weekends, but no one loitered in the lot, at least from what Mia could see.
“Don’t have one at the moment.” Mason hooked his thumbs in the belt loops of his jeans. “I took the bus. It stopped a few blocks from here.”
“Would you like a ride?” She pulled the car keys from her purse. “I feel a little ridiculous we met here tonight. I just wasn’t sure if you were some kind of freak.”
His eyebrow lifted, and he closed the distance between them as a tiger would zero in on its mate. A sexy, masculine smile curled his lips. “Have you made up your mind yet?”
“I’ll let you know in the morning.” Desire trickled down her spine. Mia nodded toward the passenger side of the car for him to hop in.
He confiscated her keys instead to unlock and open the driver’s side door for her like a gentleman. Then he leaned closer and nuzzled her temple with his nose.
Not sure if he planned to seduce her in the parking lot or if he merely wanted to tease her, Mia pressed her hand to his chest and tried to think straight. “You’re the first guy I’ve gone on a date with since my divorce. I haven’t slept with anyone since Evan.”
He tunneled his fingers through her wavy, chestnut-brown hair. “I haven’t dated anyone in a long time either. We’ll take it slow or fast, whatever you want, but I promise you one thing. After I’m done with you, you won’t even remember that bastard’s name.”
Oh, God. She almost melted right then and there. “Fast. I want you, Mason.”
“Take me to your place and you can have me.”
