Find It: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Jack Falcon is a new man. Three years after he left his life behind in London, Jack finally feels settled. He’s surrounded with everything that is important to him; a great relationship with his brother, Alex, a bar he is about to re-open, and most importantly, he has control of his life and his dreams. He knows he can’t undo the wrongs of his past, but he sure as hell can determine his future. He has worked hard to move forward and nothing is going to undo that.

Until he meets Rose.
Rose Wilson has never felt normal. Since she was a child, Rose has felt nothing but the overwhelming desire to end her life and she has no idea why. We live to die, so what’s the point in living? Rose has pushed the limits in the past, and pushed people away. She can’t figure out why Jack and Alex are so insistent on helping her. Twelve years of therapy has failed to help her, so why should they be any different?
Jack sees just how beautiful and important Rose is, but convincing her of that means putting his heart on the line, something he isn’t sure he can do. He can’t deny his feeling for Rose, but that doesn’t mean he has to act on them. And Jack isn’t the only one developing feelings for Rose.

Before Rose, Jack vowed he would never let himself fall in love again.

Before Rose, he had control.

But sometimes, it’s losing control that makes you really see what’s really important in your life.

What Surprised Me Most While Writing Beautiful Rose
I was halfway through writing Beautiful Rose when it hit me that I needed to write about Jack's past. So I wrote Seduce. Seduce went on to become an amazon bestseller, and many of my fans have told me that it's their favourite of mine. So Seduce was in no way planned, and had I not gone in the direction I did with Beautiful Rose, it never would have been written.

Author Bio
Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).

When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.

  1. I like that the author felt Jack's story had to be told. That alone makes me want to read the books. I like when the characters demand to be heard. ^_^

    1. OMG, so true. You know a book is going to be good when the character drove the story so much.

  2. I do have to read the Succubus series I hear it's so good and I really liked her VA series so I wanna see how she does with adult books. And yay for Colleen Hoover - Hopeless is one of my fav books this year!

    1. I always wanted to try that series out too. And yes, Hoover is amazeballs.

  3. Thanks for sharing the guest post. I loved Ten Tiny Breaths too!

  4. I do want to read Mead's succubus series.

  5. This looks good and I love the author's she says influenced her.
