Laura Moore | Meet a Hero...


To celebrate the release of TROUBLE ME, Book Three of my Rosewood Trilogy, I thought I'd introduce you to my newest hero, Rob Cooper.

Rob Cooper is a cop who possesses a strong sense of right and wrong. He's also a widower, who's busy raising his six year-old daughter. His wife Becky died five years earlier and Rob grieves for her still--so much so that he hasn't let himself get close to any woman since then. He realizes the situation is unhealthy, for him as well as his young daughter Hayley, but no woman has been able to capture his interest, let alone touch his heart. 

His world changes one wild, stormy night when Rob finds himself in a Norfolk hotel bar waiting out the storm so he can drive home to Warburg, Virginia, and a woman walks in and orders a drink, settling into a stool not far from his own. The woman is beautiful and though Rob of course has no intention of approaching her, the other male patrons are soon taking turns trying to their best pick-up lines. When one man becomes coarse and aggressive, Rob decides he's had enough. He crosses over to where the woman is sitting and tells the guy to take a hike.

Rob's not the kind of man another willingly crosses.

While Rob has saved the young woman from being harassed by the other men in the bar, one look into her extraordinary green eyes and he's caught in the grip of desire. It's a need, a raw sexual hunger he hasn't felt in years. Rob tells himself that it's okay to act on his desire for this beautiful stranger. This night will never be repeated; he'll never see this woman again, and, as she's completely unlike Becky, he won't be betraying the memory of his wife. It will be a brief, anonymous encounter, then they will both go their separate ways.  

But when Rob returns home, he discovers that the passion-filled night he spent with the beautiful stranger is not one he can safely relegate to a fond memory. It turns out the woman is none other than Jade Radcliffe. Though Jade may now be years older and no longer the troubled teen he once knew, she's still the last person in Warburg Rob should want in his arms...

I hope this glimpse into Rob's character makes you want to read TROUBLE ME and discover more about Rob and Jade.

Happy Reading!

Re: Laura Moore | Meet a Hero...

That's the problem with one night stands - it never ends like you think it will, lol! This sounds like a great set-up for Rob to fall hard!
(Rebecca Whitehead-Schwarz 11:29am April 9, 2012)

It looks like a great story!

Trouble Me sounds like a wonderful story! One night stands are usually a really bad idea, but this time it might have been the right thing to do. Interesting concept!
(Sandy Fielder 1:46pm April 9, 2012)

Trouble Me sounds like a fantastic story, it got everything I love.
(Gail Hurt 1:50pm April 9, 2012)

(Gladys Paradowski 3:49pm April 9, 2012)

Sounds like a great read that I need.
(Christine Schultz 5:03pm April 9, 2012)

Rob seems like a good character, yet he feels something for Jade even though he has not been with a woman since his past wife. It is good to keep your guard sometimes so that you won't fall in love with the wrong person!
(Theresa Smith 5:17pm April 9, 2012)

Sounds like a good book
(Susie Kerner 5:21pm April 9, 2012)

(Rich Cook 6:01pm April 9, 2012)

Congrats Laura on the release- it sounds great. I never had a one night stand that was actually good. Still waiting for that one knight to knock me off my feet.
(Christine Arcidiacono 6:26pm April 9, 2012)

oh, the coincidences! It's awfully hard to shake the past when you go back to live in your hometown - poor Jade!
(Beth Fuller 6:32pm April 9, 2012)

I loved the way you took a story that should have been sad, and turned it around into a great love story - at least that's what it sounds like!! My heart aches for Rob, and I can't wait to read the book, to see how the story unfolds!! You have a way with words to get people hooked to want to read your books. I suppose you like to hear that, but it's a trait that doesn't come naturally to everyone. Best of luck with your book!!
(Peggy Roberson 7:56pm April 9, 2012)

Sounds like a good read. I'm not a huge Contemporary fan, but this reminds me of one of Linda Howard stories, and she's my favorite author!
(Molly Wilsbacher 8:17pm April 9, 2012)

Sounds pretty lively. The title is intriguing because it can be taken both ways: like the girl is trouble and needs to bother him or the guy wants to be bothered.
(Alyson Widen 8:30pm April 9, 2012)

The book sounds good to read. Rob who lost his wife, is trying to get over her without feeling guilty. Life sometime could surprise you like giving you another chance at love.
(Kai Wong 8:57pm April 9, 2012)

"Trouble Me" sounds like a book I would love to read, hope I win the contest! Special thanks for the opportunity to enter this contest.
