The Book Swarm is thrilled to welcome author Megan Squires, who recently released DEMANDING RANSOM, a new adult romance. Oh, and the cover just got a fantastic update (Look below — it’s so pretty! I love the colors and those two on the cover are just adorable). Woot!
Ran… it’s really hard to sum someone up on paper, isn’t it? Ran is, well, to state the obvious, a paramedic. So that’s how we met, when he “rescued” me. It think it’s a little unfair that I was completely drugged during our first encounter, because I’m pretty sure I said things I shouldn’t have about his face and lips. But it’s true. I mean, have you seen his face? It’s unfair how gorgeous he is. Like, when you’re in an ambulance, you’re already all out of sorts and probably dizzy (or drugged in my case), and then they have this hot guy that is supposed to be calming your heart rate, but all it does is spike it through the roof. Seriously, it’s just not fair to have someone that looks the way he does in a position that he’s in.
But in all seriousness, Ran is unexpected. That’s how I would describe him. He’s this unexpected guy that completely kept me second-guessing. Because you don’t expect a tattoo-clad, motorcycle-riding reformed bad boy to be challenging emotionally or to push you to look at the world in a completely different way. Ran is definitely not one of those “what you see is what you get.” No, with Ran I got so much more than I could have ever hoped for. And in a way it scares me because I’m worried he’ll someday wake up and realize just how amazing he is and just how much he deserves. I’m pretty certain he deserves way more than I could ever offer him.
I’m so glad he was so persistent with me (even if at times it was bordering on annoying), because I know how stubborn I can be. It just took me a while to get past that gorgeous outer shell of his and see him for who he really is, this incredible, loving, and patient man that I’m so proud to call mine.
DEMANDING RANSOM by Megan Squires
Sometimes life takes things away from you. In nineteen-year-old Maggie Carson’s case, it’s taken more than its fair share.
Determined to move forward, Maggie embarks on her first year of college, hoping to finally put her past behind her, exactly where it belongs.
But that’s hard to do when the present is just as difficult. And even harder when someone like Ran, the gorgeous paramedic that keeps crossing Maggie’s path, challenges her to face things head on, rather than bury them like she always does.
Ran hasn’t had a perfect life either. But there’s something different about him, and something different about the way he makes Maggie feel. Maybe meeting Ran is life’s little gift for Maggie—a sort of consolation prize for enduring everything she’s had to go through.
But things don’t come easy for Maggie. Why should love be the exception? And just when everything starts to settle, it’s all turned on its head once again.
If there is one thing Ran has taught Maggie, it’s that you can’t sit on the sidelines of your own existence. When life takes something that’s yours, you have every right to demand it back.
Only for Maggie, that is easier said than done.
Note: Demanding Ransom is a New Adult Romance with non-explicit sexual content.
