Joss Parker’s life is a fairytale come true. She’s a concert pianist in New York who lives with her longtime boyfriend and is close with her fiercely protective father—until one fateful night when she is taken in the middle of the night.

In a desperate attempt to access a program that could be a threat to national security, her ability to play the piano is threatened. Her world comes crashing down when her father puts his need to protect a program over his own daughter.

At the last minute, Joss finds herself whisked away by an unlikely ally.

She later lands in the protective custody of none other than small-town bad boy and bar owner Derek Slade. Slade is entrusted to look after Joss and see to it that she hides behind her new persona, Jill, so that bad people don’t find her ever again.

Joss has been erased. Joss is now Jill.

As Joss trades her blond locks for Jill’s mahogany ones, she also takes on the strength of her new persona. Jill is someone who doesn’t put up with crap. Jill doesn’t trust easily. Jill must protect the broken heart of Joss.

Joss and Slade battle an intense attraction, but she isn’t the only one with secrets. Behind Slade’s silver eyes are mysteries he’s unwilling to share. Slade knows better than to get involved with Joss, yet he finds it nearly impossible to push her away.

What happens when Slade crosses the line of protector? Can he protect her when the evils of both of their pasts come back to haunt them?


RE: Erased
            Dearest Jill,
            I’m sorry recent events have led to this.  One day, I’ll find you when this is all over and we’ll make everything right.  Until then, you have been wiped from this earth. All traces of your existence have been erased. You are Jill Anderson.  You have short, brown hair.
            My eyes flit over to a pair of scissors and a box of hair dye I just now am noticing on the desk behind the laptop.
            Your life consists of laying low and staying safe.  I’ve placed you in the home of a friend where you’ll have shelter, food, and protection.  One day I hope you’ll forgive me.
            Love always,
            Tears fill my eyes and I let out a ragged sob.  My father betrayed me—for what?  A computer program? 
            “Can we put up a Christmas tree this year, Daddy?  Please?” I ask eagerly.  My seven year old self finally had the courage to ask for something I have always desperately wanted.  All the other kids at school had a Christmas tree.  Why don’t we?
            “I’m sorry, Joss.  But no.  I can’t.”
            I burst into tears, unable to understand why we couldn’t have one.  “I hate you, Daddy!  You’re a scrooge!”
            My memories fade back to the present.  That night, I was lectured and sent to bed without dinner.  Later, I understood that when your mother dies on Christmas Eve delivering you, that the holiday would forever be tainted.   
            Dragging my thoughts back into the present problem, I begin tapping out a response.
            How could you do this to me?
            Jill fucking Anderson
            The rebellion that has always laid quietly below the surface in an effort to please my father bubbles angrily.  His response is instant.
            Jill don’t-take-that-tone-with-me Anderson,
             Your life depends on it.  Do as I say.


About Elle Christensen


I have always had a love of writing but I've finally taken the leap to being published! I'm a lover of all things books, but they say to write the genre you love the most, so I fell easily into writing romance. My husband is my biggest supporter and for 13 years he's been a great sport about fighting the people in my imagination for my attention. I am also a singer, blogger, and obsessive reader! I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them!.
