Hi! I’m Diane Alberts, and today Joseph from ABSOLUTION is interviewing Eva!

In ABSOLUTION, Joseph and Eva are ex-lovers that have been thrown together by life-threatening circumstances. The kicker is, that not six weeks before the opening of the book, Eva finds Joseph in their bed—with a stripper.

She kicks him out, and they haven’t seen each other since that eventful morning. What ensues is an explosion of buried feelings—and lots of passion and fire.

Joseph: What did you think when you saw me outside of your building the day I came back to protect you?

Eva: I thought I wanted to kill you for daring to show your face to me again. Then I wanted to kiss you…but I immediately wanted to kill you again.

Joseph: Yeah, I got that down pretty well, then. I held tight to my gun—just in case you whipped it out of my holster.

Eva: (laughing) As if I could. What did you think?

Joseph: (looking deep into Eva’s eyes) I wanted to pick you up and never let you go. Ever.

Eva: Aww. I love you.

Joseph picks up Eva and stalks out of the room. (Diane clears her throat) I’m thinking this interview just might be over. Thanks for stopping by, and getting a little more insight to Joseph ad Eva. Please enjoy this little snippet of the first time they see each other again—which is what they were just talking about!

Eva can’t believe Joseph dares to show his face to her after he’d cheated on her with a stripper—in her bed. She’d kicked him out, and has no desire to let him back in, despite his claims of being assigned to protect her from the Cartel. Her life very well may be in danger, but she fears more for the safety of her heart.
Joseph made one foolish mistake a year ago, and has been paying for it ever since. She might not want to allow him into her life again, but he doesn’t care if she despises the very thought of him. His duty is to keep Eva alive, even if it might end up being the death of him. Because he never stopped loving her.
Can they put their painful history aside, and work together against her enemy? Or will the past prove too strong to be forgiven?
  “What’s going on?”

“I’ll tell you everything. But not until I get you inside. Take me to your place.”

She laughed. “Hell, no.” Worried or not, he would get nowhere near her apartment ever again. “I told you when I kicked you out you’d never be welcome inside my house again. Nothing has changed. I’m a big girl. I can handle myself.”

She took a step away, and once again he took her by the elbow. This time, Joseph didn’t stop her but grabbed her and dragged her behind him.

“No, you can’t. And if you won’t take me to your place, I’ll just lead the way. Either way, I'm getting in.” He tugged her toward the red-roofed, stucco building Eva lived in, and she tensed.

“Go to hell!” She struggled against his hold, but he didn’t even pause. She dug her heels into the cement and yanked her arm but failed to free herself from his grip. “I’ll scream.”

He stopped and leaned into her face. “You wouldn’t dare.” Without waiting for her reaction, he continued to escort her toward her building.

She opened her mouth, took a deep breath, and yelled, “Help—”
