Destiny is bogus and fate is fake.
Everything happens for a reason?
Whatever.
I gave up on my fairy tale years ago.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not settling for less.
All my energy gets poured into a job I love rather than dead end relationships.
Men aren’t even a blip on my radar these days.
Who needs them?
Except to scratch the occasional itch, I’m not interested in anything they have to offer.

If so-called Cupid ever comes knocking on my door, I’ll be waiting with my flying pig because happily ever after doesn’t exist.
I’ve become a jaded disbeliever and my main reason just sauntered into the bar.
Rowen Sworr is the only arrow that pierced my heart, and dammit, he stuck.

His random reappearance is a complicated twist from that meddling matchmaker I didn’t see coming…

BOOK TWO: Title & Character Reveal! 

The Reclusive Novel series will be a collection of standalone stories that are interconnected. Willow and Xander are the main characters in Redefining Us so what’s up next?

Forget You Not will be the second book in this series. Lark Carter will be the leading lady and you might remember her from a few short scenes in RU. Willow’s friend is a workaholic and jaded against love. Rowen Sworr will do his best to break her frosty exterior but the odds are stacked against him.

I currently have about 13,000 words composed for FYN with more piling up each day. These two are extremely fun to write and I’m already excited for everyone to meet them. I’m aiming for a late September release date but that’s still up in the air. I’ve started an inspiration board on Pinterest for Forget You Not if you’re interested in checking it out.

Stay tuned for more details on Lark & Rowen coming soon.

In the meantime, if you want the inside scoop, make sure to join my reader group ➜ Harloe’s Hotties!

Xander Dixon was my best friend.
Loyal and dependable.
A brave warrior.
A permanent presence in my life until that fateful day he boarded a plane headed overseas.

Xander’s unwelcome silence haunted me for three years…
Until he suddenly resurfaces.
Blinded by misplaced fury.
Trapped in a pool of darkness.
Unable to escape the perpetual pain.

Though it would be easy to walk away, I refuse to give up on him.
I want to know his misery and torment, so I can rescue him.
Then Xander will finally be mine.File_008

Prologue

Pain.

Debilitatingain is all I feel as I attempt to keep my emotions in check. Saying goodbye to my best friend was never a thought I entertained. Now it’s my reality.

“Wills.” His voice takes on a pleading tone as he stares into my tear filled eyes. “Please don’t make this harder for me than it already is.” He continues to look at me as the saltwater drips down my cheeks.

“I’m sorry, X, but you have no idea how difficult life will be here without you.” I can’t catch my breath as the hysteria threatens to take over. I try to take deep inhales between puffs of pitiful exhales.

He presses his forehead to mine and I don’t think he understands how much that involuntary, ingrained move means to me at that moment. Xander is one of the greats and I’m about to lose him.

“Promise me,” I begin in a begging voice. “Swear to me that you’ll come back and everything will be the same.”

“Willow Shae, I could never stay away from you longer than necessary, so you don’t even have to ask. But yes, I promise and swear I will be back as soon as possible to return to our regularly scheduled friendship.”

With that remark, he has me cracking a smile. Even through the tears. Gosh, I will miss this man.

“Will you write me? Does that sound cheesy? I see it in all the old time movies and I always wanted to say it.” Maybe it is the dreamy lilt to my voice that has his lips quirking into a smile.

“Wills, I will write you every chance I get and I expect the same. Now, give me a hug that means everything you feel because I won’t see you for at least a year.” His eyebrows crease with that devastating blow, even though I’d heard that timeline before. I can tell he’s still very worried about how I’m feeling based on the telling nonverbal cues radiating off him.

We embrace easily, like so many times before, yet this is different. His hands linger on my hips before settling on the middle of my back. His breath holds until he blows it slowly across my neck. His eyes find my gaze like he had more to say than his voice would allow. I indulge these rare affections and give a few curve balls of my own.

“I’ll miss you every day, Xander. I will never go a single moment without a thought of you. Best friend or not, you mean more to me than any other person in this world. Please be careful. I will be waiting for you.” I pull away before he’s able to reply. I can’t stand to further delay this inevitable separation.

Xander looks down at me once more before picking up his pack and hoisting it over his shoulder. Then he tosses out the toughest blow ever dealt.

“When I am having a bad day, or we get into brutal battle, or a friend gets hurt, or… just something awful happens, I will think of your smile because it always makes me happy.”

Then he turns and walks toward the airline gate.

This was it. I have to tell him. It is now or never. As he passes through the threshold, I gain my courage.

“Xander!” I scream. He turns around immediately and looks startled by my outburst. It’s then I realize he had planned to keep walking until I called out. I can’t lay out my heart then just watch him leave.

Instead of telling him exactly how I feel, I blow him a kiss. Maybe for good luck or maybe for all the kisses I wish we had actually shared. He catches it and smiles. Then continues on his way.

Xander is much braver than I am, he’s an amazing man, and he will make our country proud. But my most forefront thought is worry that I will never get to tell him how much I love him.File_003

Ready to read??

Redefining Us releases in FIVE short days. Who’s ready to read my debut romance?

This is what some early reviewers are saying:

“This book stole me away from everything. It was an emotionally filled read that had me tied up in knots and in tears one moment and laughing in others. Harloe’s finesse at storytelling is amazing, particularly for a debut author.” – AM Hargrove, USA Today bestselling author

“Powerful..that is the best word to describe this book. Redefining Us is my top favorite this year and is a definite must read, cheese and rice <3” – Crystal’s BookWorld

To me this love story is more genuine than 75% of the books I have read. It was real and so very very raw, yet it was all wrapped up and wonderfully written.” – Trashy BibloBlog

“This book is about what rips us apart but also what heals. Its about redemption but most of all, its a lifeline type of love.” – MM Laberge All About Books

“This story was so touching that it made me cry, but I kept wanting more. The only bad thing about this book is it had to end.” Cynthia, Goodreads reviewer

So… are you ready for May 28th?

It’s right around the corner!
