Synopsis: Scarlet Leore enjoys a glittering existence amongst society’s elite. Ethan Blake is a prizefighter knocking his way through school, counting on his winnings to bankroll the dreams that won’t fit in a boxing ring. When the two meet, neither can deny the instant attraction that wells between the hulking fighter and the heiress who is miles and millions out of his league. But a vicious attack leaves Scarlet physically and emotionally battered, and for Ethan, her allure crumbles along with the rest of his life after she accuses him of wielding the knife.

Years later, Scarlet has abandoned the high life for that of a hard-working lawyer, while Ethan has clawed his way to the pinnacle of a business empire. Drawn into his world of high-stakes tech mergers, they dance to a tune of revenge, desire, and finally, redemption. But their world won’t tolerate an attorney falling for her client. They’ll need more than lust and forgiveness. They must bridge the chasm of a tormented past to understand who they are today. Only then can they forge a future in the face of the resurging enemy who once tore them apart.

          So, Libby, why hot romance?
          Readers and non-readers alike often land on the same question when they hear I’m releasing my first novel, and that the book is a contemporary romance. A spicy one, no less.
          “Why sexy romance?” they ask.
          I’ve been asked this question in droves. At first, my instincts urged me to respond with a big, fat, “Of course romance! Why not romance?! What are you smoking?!” Then I realized this was, at least in reference to me, a pretty legitimate question.
          People ask because my background is not particularly sexy—first an engineer, then a patent lawyer. If there are two career paths the general population doesn’t equate with sexy and romance, it’s pretty much engineer and patent lawyer. With a history in both, people tend to think, “Why not legal thrillers? Why not techy sci-fi?”
          The answer? I write romance because I believe in all kinds of love between all kinds of people, and I believe that everyone deserves a piece of the sweet life. Now, if love-until-death-do-us-part is a real thing, even in this complicated day and age, and if everyone deserves to find that kind of love, then why doesn’t everyone have it, and why is the general population increasingly cynical toward the very idea?
          Now that’s a question the analytical mind can embrace.
          It’s also the conundrum that leads me to romance, and what makes me write stories about people with pasts, the ones with good reasons to give up on finding happily ever after. Sometimes these people are torn and jagged, even unlikable before some hard-earned growth, and they travel dark roads before finding their match. Like many real people, my characters don't believe they deserve all the beauty the world has to offer, and I enjoy the challenge of bringing it to them. If love is indeed a chemical reaction, then writing the path for two people to find it is my formula.
          And when those two people do find happiness, well, I figure they deserve to have a damn sexy time together.
          One page, one kiss, one scorching interlude at a time.
          In Love Me Later, Ethan and Scarlet have to pay their dues at the door. Two people with such capacity for love naturally have an equal and opposite capacity for pain, but they reach their bliss, and by the time they do, they’ve earned every blistering minute of their present and their future.

About the Author:

Before becoming a writer, Libby was first a mechanical engineer in the data acquisition industry (voltmeter anyone?). Preferring writing to technical design, Libby headed to law school and eventually practiced patent law for several enterprising years (patent application covering a voltmeter anyone?). Finally realizing that technology just wasn’t her bag, she traded the voltmeters for alpha heroes and the women who love them.

Today, Libby writes contemporary romances from the foot of the Rocky Mountains, where she lives with her husband, a bona fide rocket scientist (he stuck with the voltmeters!). When not writing, Libby loves good food, even better wine, and traveling the world in search of the next great story.
