He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn?t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don?t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.


More About IF I WERE YOU
How it began...

One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I?d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She?d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expires.

Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman?s life, feeling uncomfortable , as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman?s life, and yes, read her journals?-dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn?t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I?d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.

Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn?t know. I was becoming her?

The dark, passion it becomes...

Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I?ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of which I envision as one I?ve read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible.  That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn?t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don?t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.
All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don?t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself ? do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn?t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more.



About this author

Booklist says: Jones' suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann. Alpha, military, and paranormal romance readers will want Jones' entire series. (About the Zodius Series -- Storm that is Sterling)

In 2003, award winning author Lisa Renee Jones sold her Austin, Texas based multi-state staffing agency and has since published over thirty novels and novellas across several genres. Her staffing agency LRJ Staffing was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.

Her debuts with Blaze and Nocturne hit Bookscan's Top 100 list and her Blaze Hotzone trilogy made a showing on the list in 2011 also. With a new Blaze trilogy, a short story for Spice, the third book in her Zodius series published with Sourcebooks, as well as an rapidly growing indie following, 2012 will bring many new stories to her readers.

I had only read Lisa's Harlequin books until recently when i discovered other books by her. Now I am on a buying frenzy to have all of her books. And this one is one I have been anticipating for a while.
