Finding Love's Wings


CAMERON ENDERS seems to have it all: a brand new condo in a city she loves, a top executive position at an international entertainment firm, an insane amount of money, and a gorgeous boyfriend. But when Cami catches the boyfriend in the act with another woman, it triggers all the anguish from years of neglect by her parents, and she realizes she never learned how to love or be loved. Cami flees to the remote tropical island of Tarah, but she can't avoid facing her problems any longer when she meets the man of her fantasies...

TRISTAN MICHAELS, one of Hollywood's hottest new stars, has come to Tarah to ride out a storm. His girlfriend of five years has been caught on camera cheating, and she's determined to make Tristan stop the story from breaking. But Tristan's done cleaning up her messes. He needs to escape all things Hollywood for a while--and especially the firm that represents him--until the whole thing blows over. What he doesn't count on is meeting an irresistibly beautiful woman, a woman who just so happens to be the CEO of the firm he's trying to avoid.

Can Tristan and Cami help each other learn to trust and love again, or will their histories of betrayal tear them apart?


"Tristan, today and tonight have been amazing. Thank you," I whisper as I reach up and cup his face. With a little bit of pressure against his cheek I coerce his mouth toward mine and kiss him.

I faintly hear the ding of the elevator over the sound of the blood rushing and pulsing through my ears. I realize I'm not breathing. His hand on my jaw exerts gentle pressure to lead me forward. Not until the elevator closes mere inches behind me do I realize that we've entered the foyer of his suite.
I reach up and grip his hair, pulling his mouth to mine in an aggressive kiss. I feel his hands on my back, seeking a zipper. In contrast to mine, his motions are slow and calculated. Like he is trying to make sure that this is what I really want.

“Want” is no longer a word in my vocabulary. I need him.

I pull away from the kiss and bring my hands slowly down his neck to the top button of his shirt. Slowly, one by one, I start to undo his shirt.

As I slowly undo each button, little visual pleasures come into view. His chest is cut to perfection. His abs are chiseled. As I unhook the last button, his shirt starts to fall away from his shoulders. A good portion of the dragon on his chest comes into view and I take a moment to breathe in his scent His scent is like heaven, and my body heats. He is gorgeous.

Opening his shirt brings out the sexy, well-defined V that accents his hips. My breathing spikes and my mouth goes dry. His pants are hung low on his hips in such a way that I would be surprised if he was wearing anything underneath.

Reaching up, I push his shirt off, drinking in his nakedness. I'd seen him shirtless before, but not like this. Not with the eyes of knowing that tonight everything changes between us. Once we start, it is going to be impossible to stop going forward.

I continue pushing his shirt down his arms. His biceps are beautiful, toned, and tight. Perfectly contoured, thick and strong. His skin is very warm to the touch with a slight hint of a tan. When the arms of his shirt reach his wrists, they stop and go no further.

  5. Wow this sounds AMAZING!! Another new author and book to add to my TBR list. Thanks Zoey, looking forward to reading this.<br /><br />Robin Womack
  6. I'm with LM. You had me at Tristan! LOL. I've purchased the book and am looking forward to reading. SO love you for being part of the fun today, Ms. Zoey!!!
  7. Hi Everyone! <br />Thank you Angel for inviting me to this awesome party :-D! <br /><br />I'm honored to be here to share in Handcuffed by Her Hero's release and to introduce myself! <3<br /><br />Tristan is a hottie! Tattoos-what more could you ask for? :-D! <br /><br />XXOO! <br />Zoey!
    • Seriously. Tattoos ARE a secret way into my heart...and libido!
    • mine too!! <br />I'm not sure I'm capable of an Inkless Hero they're just sexier and .... Mmmhmmm *stalks off looking for a bucket of ice*
  8. A new author. Yay! Looking forward to reading this book. Tristan, yum
  9. Great sounding book thanks for sharing.
  10. Zoey, I loved Tristan and Cami! The tats, the piercings, the champagne in the pool! All around fantastic book!
  11. Thanks so much Rhonda for sharing your love of Tristan and Cami! <3! :-D
  12. OMG..This sounds like a fabulous book I have got to add it to my TBR.
  13. He sounds like a hottie!
  14. Sounds like a great, steamy read! The Tristan/cheating girlfriend situation brings to mind the Rob Pattinson/Kristen Stewart fiasco.
    • OMG, that whole thing was crazy, huh? The good news is, Rob's now single again...and I can drool without guilt. Though I love my Chan, in the back of my head I always keep thinking about Jenna and how sweet she is. I don't have that problem with my newest obsession, Tony Goldwyn--which is weird *Shrugs.* Who knows my mind, huh??
    • The irony & a little FLW insider information is that I wrote about Layla's cheating (in the book) on Tristan about 3 weeks before that story broke. <br />It had some minor influence in story from then on. <br /><br />& I had a younger more muscled Christian Bale in mind as I wrote. :-)!
  15. Why haven't I read anything from you yet Zoey?!?!? We have to change that!!! <3
  16. Zoey I loved the excerpt and the Blurb..... Thank you for the chance to win and I will be definitely adding you to my LISTS of must reads!!!!

  19. Ooooohh I loved the blurb and am going to add to my TBR list. Thank you so much for sharing.
  20. I love the bookcover..its awesome
  21. Nice sounding book. I really like that both of the characters are both dealing with the effects of finding out that their S.O. have cheated (although it sounds like this is not the first time his ex has screwed up in some way).
  22. I absolutely need to add this to my tbr!!!!
