book blurb

THE HERMIT

Annie Catrel, social media expert extraordinaire at Davidson & Croft Media and clandestine celebrity blogger, can make anyone shine in the court of public opinion. She is the Socialmedialite, anonymous creator of New York’s Finest and the internet’s darling. Virtual reality is Annie’s forte, but actual reality? Not so much.

THE HOOKER

Ronan Fitzpatrick, aka the best hooker the world of rugby has seen in decades, despises the media—social or otherwise. The press has spun a web of lies depicting him as rugby’s wild and reckless bad boy. Suspended from his team, Ronan has come to Manhattan to escape the drama, lay low, fly under the radar. Only, Ronan isn’t easy to overlook, and he can’t escape the notice of the Socialmedialite…

THE PLAN

When Ronan is sent to Davidson & Croft Media to reshape his public image, he never expects to cross paths with shy but beautiful Annie, nor does he expect his fierce attraction to her. He couldn’t be happier when her boss suggests pairing them together.

What lengths will Annie take to keep her virtual identity concealed? And what happens when the hooker discovers who the hermit really is?

The Hooker and the Hermit is a collaboration between authors L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid, is a full length 100k word novel, and is a standalone.

Penny Reid

Author-Photo-Penny-Reid-300x300SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

my review

5 Stars

I’m a freaking L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid puddle. I loved every single moment of their book, The Hooker and the Hermit. The witty banter. The flirting.  The conflict and drama. It was so well written – the authors seriously created characters that you wish were real so that you could be friends with them. Every minute of Annie and Ronan’s romance is captivating and intriguing.

Can I have Ronan Fitzpatrick for my birthday?  (Preferably only wrapped in a bow.)  Pretty please!! I want him!!  He was so much fun and so extremely sexy. His stubbornness left you shaking your head in laughter all the while creating an appreciation for his dedication toward getting what he wants. His charisma jumps off the page and latches onto you – you never want the book to end.

And Annie. I adored her. She’s smart, clever, and clearly has impeccable instincts for what the public wants. Her blog is incredible. It made me laugh and made me wish that it was a real site that I could visit daily. I liked that her character was not vapid or uninspiring.  Her insecurities were relatable and understandable but she found a way to reach out of her comfort zone with her blog. You are quickly very empathetic toward her plight and hope that she works past her trust issues.

Some books create characters that both mesh and explode – it’s bewitching.  Annie and Ronan are one of those couples and together they are magic. I devoured The Hooker & the Hermit.  The plot plays out well and quickly – this will become a favorite and a story that you will revisit time and time again.  The  characters are that awesome and I cannot recommend it enough.
