The Covendale Series

Five Minute Man

The Covendale Series, Book 1


Holly McTierney left the safety and respectability of her job as a software analyst to pursue her dream of writing romance novels, despite the fact that she doesn’t believe in love at first sight, soul mates, or five minute orgasms.  She lives alone in a centuries-old cottage and prefers the company of her dog, Max, to that of humans.

Adam Grayson is a local contractor who specializes in historical renovations.  He readily admits to being painfully chauvinistic, and desires a woman who can accept his innate caveman tendencies, though he doubts that is possible in today’s world of empowered females.

One chance encounter leads to another.  They hit it off amazingly well – too well, in fact.  Prior experiences have left them both a bit leery, though they are cautiously optimistic.  Before their budding romance has a chance to fully blossom, Adam’s unstable ex, Eve, decides she wants him back, and is willing to go to great lengths to get him.

Eventually, the truth is revealed, but only after the damage is done, and Holly must decide if she is capable of writing her own happy ending.

“I started reading this book during my lunch at work, I couldn’t wait to get home to continue. I loved the story line. Holly and Adam had my heart from the beginning to the end.” ~ Amazon Reviewer Chris 

“Once again I had the pleasure of reading a quick witted story, sweet story that I haven’t read a thousand times become.” ~ Amazon Reviewer Michelle
