“Six years, a complex about my freckles, a love for pastrami, and a fear of failure.
That’s what he gave me before slaughtering my heart and my faith in men.”

Suffering from the sting of betrayal, twenty-eight-year-old Avery Johannas quits her job and moves hundreds of miles away to Ocean City, the beach town of her dreams. With the help of her zany roommate, Jodie, Avery finds a new career, home, and freedom. Throughout her self-exploration, she makes only one rule: She won’t give her heart to a man again. She’s living for herself this time.

But then she meets Jesse.

A tattoo shop owner, the green-eyed Jesse Pearce is wild with a touch of mystery. As Jesse and Avery explore Ocean City and their friendship, they’ll have a hard time drawing a line in the sand between their hearts.

When summer nights get a little more heated than either expected, they’ll have to ask themselves: Can they let go of their notions of love, or will their hearts be permanently inked by past pain?

About Lindsay Detwiler

An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she loves cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, Marjorie, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job.

Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

The Day She Cried

Preorder: iBooks | Kobo

She was my first love.
She was my first hate.
The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty.
Until I dimmed her light for good…
Or so I thought.

Now she’s back.
Cracked. Broken. Lost.
And for the first time in a long time, I feel free.
Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future.

Her misery is my music.
Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating.

For so long, all I’ve done is hate her.
So why do I love her?

Book: Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall

Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC

Price: free with Kindle Unlimited, $2.99 without

Link to purchase: Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall

Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall is a standalone erotic charged retelling of a classic Greek myth. Persephone daughter of Demeter Goddess of harvest and agriculture is taken by Hades the God of the underworld, Ms. Darcy puts spicy spin on a much-loved classic. This book is not for the faint of heart, this story contains scenes that some might find disturbing. If you have a great appreciation for dark erotic romance and can keep an open mind, this will be a satisfying short read.

The story opens with Kore a young woman eager to see the world, she falls in love with the idea of being desired. She soon learns that seduction is a dangerous game with costly consequences. Aidoneus is a tortured soul who does not believe in love, when his eyes lands on the beautiful Kore he is drawn to her innocence and her naiveté. Kore learns that being in love is not all roses and sunshine when your love interest is the God of the Underworld. Erotic romance writer and history scholar Eva Darcy weaves her extensive knowledge of the Greek Gods into a tasty morsel of forbidden romance. The only growth area in this story is it was too short, it leaves an ache to read more and to know more.

The characters were complex, well-developed and believable. The scenes were painted exquisitely on each page, pulling the reader from reality and into a world created by Ms. Darcy. If I had to describe this story in a few words it would be fresh, enticing and electrifying. This is a story told by maiden Kore and then by Persephone the Queen of the Underworld. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Darcy.

After reading this story I loved it so much that I am giving four of my readers an opportunity to read this wonderful book. Below is a link to a digital book giveaway, four lucky readers will be gifted Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall by Eva Darcy. In support of indie authors don’t forget to leave a review as a courtesy, it is not required but will be appreciated.

About the Author

Eva Darcy is a writer of erotica with a grad degree in history, who used to teach Western Civ. (And secretly spent too much class time dreaming about the stories behind the ancient stories…) Love of writing, love of history, and a slightly naughty romantic streak have all converged into writing stories based on mythology and history. She began with the ancient Greek myth of Persephone because that myth has always resonated so strongly with her. When she saw Bernini’s “Rape of Proserpina” statue in the Borghese Gallery in Rome, she knew she had to write Kore’s story. SUMMER MAIDEN is a stand-alone story, but Darcy intends to write more stories in this world, so expect more cross-over characters in other erotic romance novellas. Next up? Apollo and Daphne.
