About Dirt

A hard-hitting, emotional new series from New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo.

Jack and I had everything. Then, in one brutal instant, the universe tilted on its side, discarding us into black nothingness.

Now, I have a cocky a**hole for a husband.

The only way we communicate anymore is when we’re fighting or f**king.

With nothing left to lose, I write Jack a goodbye letter and head for Portland, where I quickly meet a neighbor who helps me find a job.

My new neighbor—hot, tattooed ex-soldier Isaac Evans—is complicated. Nevertheless, we form a fast friendship, bonding over our mutual desire to create something beautiful from the wreckage of our lives.

But despite the distance between us, Jack and I are still trying to make things work—fighting and f**king dirtier than ever. And he doesn’t appreciate my new friendship with Isaac. Not one f**king bit.

Chapter Reveal

Chapter 1


I hugged Jack Jr. tightly against my breast, and he molded his soft, warm body to mine. His eyes remained closed as his tiny fingers curled around the fabric of my blouse, his rosy lips puckering as he geared up for more food.

“You sucked me dry, little fella,” I whispered, leaning in to press my nose against the downy-soft, golden hair on the top of his head. I inhaled his scent and my muscles unspooled. “But I’ll be back to feed you soon. I promise.”

Why do babies smell so damn good?

Before I got pregnant with Junior, my favorite smell was orange blossoms. As a teenager, I often got scolded by my mom for picking the flowers off the orange tree in our backyard in Portland. I’d rub the creamy petals between my fingers, bruise them with my fingernails, then sniff my hand for hours until the scent wore off.

When I was pregnant with Junior, my favorite scent became the rich aroma of the forbidden coffee I could no longer drink.

After Junior was born, and my decaf days came to a glorious end, I realized how wrong I’d been. There was absolutely no scent as sweet and soul-quieting as the smell of the top of a baby’s head. Bonus points if the baby was lying peacefully on your chest sound asleep.

“Are you ever going to put him down?”

I flicked my head sideways, startled by Jack’s clear, baritone voice.

He stood in the doorway of Junior’s nursery, the silhouette of his six-foot-three athletic body framed by the warm light in the hallway. His head was tilted to the side. He’d probably been standing there admiring us for a while. After six years together, I knew Jack’s body language and facial expressions better than I knew my own face.

I stood from the rocking chair and stole one more sniff of Junior’s head before I placed him gently on his back in the center of the crib. I adjusted the left sleeve of his pajamas, pulling it down to make sure it covered his entire chubby arm. I didn’t want to imagine him waking up cold and alone in here.

Jack appeared at my side as I switched on the video baby monitor. “He’s going to be fine,” he murmured, reaching down to stroke the soft patch of hair on Junior’s head. “In fact, he’ll probably enjoy some time alone. After all, he is just like his daddy; sometimes, we need a break from the constant attention from the ladies.”

I rolled my eyes and headed for the door. “Making jokes only makes leaving him slightly less scary, you know,” I said as we stepped into the hallway of our five-bedroom dream home in Hood River, Oregon. I couldn’t wait to fill up every one of these bedrooms with brothers and sisters for Jack Jr.

Jack chuckled as he followed closely behind me. “Less scary is an improvement,” he replied, grabbing my hand to stop me in the middle of the corridor. “You promised Junior you’d be back soon. Can you also make me a promise?”

The hallway lights made his dark hair look glaringly shiny, but I couldn’t help but notice how weary his blue eyes looked tonight. Since Junior arrived three months ago, I’d been so focused on my baby boy’s vulnerability, his scent, his beauty, I hadn’t slowed down enough to appreciate how those were the same qualities that made me fall in love with Jack.

Suddenly, my worries about leaving Junior with my mother for the evening evaporated. All I wanted to do was kiss Jack, grab hold of that dark hair and make love to him for hours. I wanted to replace the weariness in his eyes with dark hunger, or maybe a glint of mischief.

I squeezed his hand and smiled at the thought of possibly having sex with him in public tonight. We hadn’t done that in a while.

“What kind of promise?” I asked.

He shook his head. “Nope, you’re not allowed to ask. Just promise me you’ll say yes.”

My stomach vaulted at the sound of those words. They were the same words Jack spoke when he asked me to marry him. I wondered what he would ask this time.

The phrase “just promise me you’ll say yes” had become like an inside joke, our own private, unspoken promise to each other that we would always do whatever it took to stay together. The last time he had uttered this phrase, he asked me to stop taking my birth control pills. With Junior here, it was easy to trust that whatever Jack asked me for this time would turn out to be exactly what I needed.

I tilted my head back so I could look up and into his crystal-blue eyes. “Yes, I can make you a promise.”

His expression became sober. “Promise me you’ll be present tonight.” He fixed me with a piercing gaze as his large hand cupped my face. “It’s just you and me for the next three hours. Promise me.”

I smiled. “I promise. Just you and me. And I’ll even put my cell phone on vibrate.” As I said the words, a sharp finger of fear prodded my subconscious, telling me it was a bad idea to risk missing a phone call tonight.

The exhaustion in Jack’s eyes melted away as he smiled. “I can deal with that, but you have to promise me one more thing.”

“What’s that?”

His smile turned almost menacing as he looped his arm around my waist and drew me close. “Promise me you’ll lemme smash that blonde bombshell booty,” he said, landing a light swat on my ass.

I shook my head as I recalled how we often had sex in public during our first year together, in our senior year at Oregon State University, Cascades. For some reason, once we graduated and moved in together, having sex in public seemed like something we couldn’t get away with so easily. We decided public sex-hibitions — or throw downs, as we more commonly referred to them — would be reserved for special occasions like anniversaries or vacations.

Truthfully, Jack and I kicked off our relationship by having sex on the first date. He was always a very difficult man to resist. When he showed up at my apartment to pick me up that night, I couldn’t resist his suggestion that we should stay in and make paper masks of ourselves, then put them on and ask each other first date questions as if we were the other person. I had never laughed so much on any date. Ever. But when he asked — while pretending to be me — if I’d ever had sex with someone on the first date, I couldn’t help but respond with, “I’m Jack-fucking-Stratton. I’ve fucked a lot of girls on the first date. But none as gorgeous as you.”

Jack always knew how to keep things fresh and alarmingly sexy. Six years in and my body still craved him almost every second of every day.

Today was our three-year wedding anniversary. We’d only had sex twice since I gave birth to Junior three months ago, and both of those times were truly awkward.

The first time was painful. My C-section incision hadn’t fully healed yet, and even trying to have sex with him behind me was uncomfortable. The second time we tried, Jack was so afraid of hurting me, he stopped midway through. There’d been a lot of oral sex happening in this house since then.

Luckily, a few weeks had passed since our last attempt, and I had repeatedly assured him I was fully healed up now. I was certain that even if the sex did hurt a little, it would still be worth it. I couldn’t understand couples that didn’t consider sex an important part of a relationship. I never felt more complete, more present, more alive than when my body and mind were entwined with Jack’s.

I smiled as I wrapped my arms around his waist. “I think I know just the place for a proper throw down.”

He wiggled his eyebrows. “Ooh. Tell me more.”

As he leaned in to kiss me, my mother’s voice interrupted us.

“Are you two making out again?” she said, standing at the top of the stairs with her hands on her hips as she gawped at us. “Well, don’t let me stop you.”

Jack laughed and I shook my head as we moved toward her.

“We’re just trying to keep you entertained while you’re on vacation, Beth,” Jack said.

My mother cocked an eyebrow. “If I wanted to watch porn, I’d open up your laptop and have a look at your internet history.”

“Mom, don’t be gross,” I protested, trying not to laugh.

Jack smiled as he held out his elbow for my mom to grab hold as they descended the stairs in front of me. “I made a special collection of links for you. They’re in a folder labeled Tantric Geriatric. You’ll love it.”

I rolled my eyes. Jack and my mother exchanged jabs like this all day.

My mother was staying with us for a few days, so Jack and I could have some time to ourselves and get some much-needed uninterrupted sleep. She was leaving tomorrow to go back to the house where I grew up in Portland. Though she pretended as if she was desperate to get home to her Craftsman cottage in the city, and I even teased her about how she was dying to get back so she could see the handsome new neighbor she’d been going on about, I knew she was going to miss Jack’s pretend insults as much as she would miss Junior and me.

My mother practically shoved me toward the front door. “I order you to go have fun,” she said, smiling as Jack opened the door and stepped outside. “And don’t come home until you’re too drunk to walk.”

I shook my head. “Thanks, Mom. Please call if you need anything. And don’t answer the door for anyone. There’s a house that got broken into a few streets away.”

She waved off my paranoia. “Stop worrying so much. We’ll be fine. See you later, babe.”

I blew her a kiss, then I closed the door behind me.

* * *

“I have to admit, having sex on the waterfront was one of my favorite public throw downs ever,” Jack said, pulling his Tesla into the long driveway of our four-acre estate. “But do we really have to wait until our fourth anniversary to do it again?”

I tugged the silky fabric of my skirt straight as I pressed my thighs together. Though my body was still raw with the evidence of the dirty deed we’d just committed, I couldn’t wait to get Jack inside and pounce on him again. I hadn’t realized how much I missed the sensation of him moving inside me, and how good he was at making me feel beautiful.

“We can do that anytime we can snag a babysitter,” I replied as he turned the car off.

He made no move to exit the Tesla. “Well, babycakes, you’d better get ready to interview a fuck-ton of babysitters.”

I laughed. “Babycakes? That’s a new one.”

Jack rarely used the same term of endearment twice in a row. He liked to keep me guessing.

He scrunched up his nose. “Yeah, that one was kind of creepy. Now that I’ve tried it out, I think I can bury that one in the nickname graveyard.”

“Try the incinerator,” I said, reaching for the door handle.

“Duly noted,” he replied, exiting the vehicle.

Jack and I glided unhurriedly along the flagstone walkway, which was lined with sparkling pathway lights. As we made our way toward the steps leading up to the covered porch, I stopped in the middle of the path and closed my eyes as I inhaled the sweet scent of the lavender and honeysuckle I’d planted with my mom’s help.

That was when I made a wish, a corny wish, but I didn’t care.

I wished that every person could find someone they loved as much as I loved Jack. I wished every child could feel as loved as Junior was. And I wished every anniversary could be as perfect as this one.

“No… No, no, no!” Jack’s voice grew louder with each no.

They say mother’s intuition is scientifically proven to exist. I knew by the tone of Jack’s voice, without even opening my eyes, that my world would never be the same. I knew in that instant, I would regret leaving Jack Jr. tonight for the rest of my life.

Though I knew something was wrong, I wasn’t prepared for what we found.

At some point, while we were lost in our blissful celebration, the front door of our home had been forced open. This discovery was what had made Jack cry out in disbelief. Father’s intuition must also be a thing, because he told me later that, even though the door was still closed, the moment he saw the gouges in the wood near the handle, he had felt that same sense of dread. That feeling that the universe had suddenly tilted on its side, discarding us into black nothingness.

The house was ransacked.

Furniture upended, paintings and flatscreen televisions torn off the walls, shards of shattered vases littered the floors. Complete and utter chaos.

The master bathroom doorknob looked as if it had been shot off. We found my mother’s lifeless form huddled against the bathtub, my baby boy’s dead body clutched tightly in her arms.

About  Katharine E. Hamilton:
Katharine E. Hamilton graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Arts in History and uses her knack for research in all her stories. She is a Southern Belle with a pinch of sass, and when she is not writing she can be found chasing around her toddler son, driving around the ranch, or baking delicacies for local parties and events. Katharine currently resides on a ranch in South Texas where the skies and rivers, in all their beauty, rejuvenate the soul.

Interview With Katharine E. Hamilton:

1.Can you tell us a little about your books?
I write in multiple genres, but an overall theme to my work is that they are clean, fun reads. You don't have to worry about cursing or spicy love scenes. They are sweet and entertaining. Montgomery House is part of The Lighthearted Collection, a series of sweet, clean romances, that I launched this year. Chicago's Best was the first in this particular collection and was well received by readers, so I continued that style with Montgomery House and will have an additional book releasing in Spring of 2018 as part of the collection as well.

2. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I have published eight books thus far, though I have written an exceptional amount more than that. However, currently published I have three children's books, an epic fantasy series called The Unfading Lands (a three book series) and then The Lighthearted Collection (which consists of Chicago's Best and Montgomery House). I also have Audio books available for Chicago's Best and Montgomery House due out in 2018.
Out of all of these, it's hard to pick a favorite. I think I will always have a soft spot for The Unfading Lands because it took me years to muster the courage to put it out there, and I still feel connected with the characters. However, I'm a sucker for a sweet love story, so I'm LOVING writing The Lighthearted Collection series. Chicago's Best has much of my own personality written into the main character, Kat, and Montgomery House has quite a bit of fun family references in there for me personally.... such as nicknames, certain sayings my grandmother says, etc.

3. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
I used to have a rather structured writing time, but all that seems to change when you have a kiddo. :) Now, I try to fit in my writing time supremely early in the morning, late at night, or during those blessed nap times.

4. Do you listen to music while you write?
Depends on the type of manuscript I'm working on. While writing The Unfading Lands series, I listened to quite a bit, but lately, I choose the peace and quiet. I seem to focus better just hearing the keys on my keyboard tapping away.

5. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
I live on a ranch in the middle of nowhere, but nowhere has the most peaceful and beautiful countryside. I also have the luxury of living on top of a cliff that overlooks a river, so my favorite spot is to set up shop on my porch swing and tap away on the laptop, or, depending on the time of day, I will sit on my back porch and type. We have beautiful sunsets here in south Texas, and the best view is from my back porch. :)

6. When you write do you write the first draft on a computer or paper and pen?
I definitely use a computer. I'm not patient enough to use paper and pen. My thoughts, especially when writing dialogue, move too fast for me to write, therefore I type them. However, I do draft my plot points or timeline on pen and paper. And most of my research can be found on scribbled post-its all over my desk.

7. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?
Ireland. I've always wanted to visit Ireland. In fact, my husband and I were just discussing a trip to Ireland last night... so maybe the fairy godmother is at work.

8. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I actually turned over my latest manuscript to my editor this week! Woo hoo! The next book in The Lighthearted Collection will be hitting the market in early 2018. The Montgomery House Audio Book will be releasing on Audible in February 2018. And I currently have three other manuscripts I'm working on... all different genres. It keeps things interesting. :) But right now, I'm focusing most of my attention on preparing the latest manuscript for market. :)

Book Excerpt

“Whatever it is you want, I can help you get it. You don’t have to do this.”
“You can’t,” he answered, and he knew it was true. The lack of action from the asshole when she’d begged on the phone had made it clear. As long as he stopped, Mercier would continue to drag this out — which left only one option, he’d have to hurt the girl, torture her until he gave in for real. No more promises, no more time, no more deadlines.
Action or destruction.
“I can. Ju-just give me the chance.” Her hands tightened into fists as he moved closer, tugging at the chains that he already knew wouldn’t give her any slack.
“No more chances for you or Daddy. Either he signs, or we keep going until you’re done.”
“Done?” she whispered, and the tears pooling in her eyes caught the lights making them shine. So fucking beautiful. Such a fucking waste.
“That’s right.”
“Oh God!” The girl fought hard, ripping at the cuffs, making her breasts bounce, nipples hardened by the cool air in the room, and he watched for a minute as a few tears leaked out into her hair.
“Don’t worry, I don’t want you to talk to him this time.” Lifting the ball gag in his hands, he smiled underneath the mask when she shook her head, panic making her flail harder at the chains while his cock stiffened against his leg.
Please! Just let me talk to him again, please, tell me what you want him to sell and I’ll convince him! I swear! I’ll do it!” As she begged, he knelt down beside her, taking a moment to trace one finger over the soft skin of her arm. She felt so pure, so good, and how someone like her had come from someone so evil he couldn’t figure out — but none of that mattered. All he needed was her suffering.
“Open up.” He held the gag in front of her face, offering her the easy way, but she clenched her teeth tight just like he’d expected. Somehow the girl was simultaneously terrified of him, and still defiant. Where was her sense of self-preservation? Why wasn’t she submitting to him fully in an attempt to make him lenient?
Not like it would work.
Wrapping his hand under her chin, he dug his fingers into the muscles of her jaw, slowly forcing her mouth wide as she whimpered. As soon as there was enough space, he forced the ball gag between her teeth, and then pressed his hand down to keep it there. “Tsk, tsk. I wasn’t asking, princess, and when you disobey you just make me angry.”
A sharp, incomprehensible shout escaped her lips, so he locked the gag a notch too tight, leaving her groaning as her jaw strained.
“You should hope he loves you as much as you think he does.”

About Audrina Lane:

I live in Herefordshire with my partner Steve and my 2 dogs. The original book started life when I was 19 back in 1992 but I was too scared to try and get it published! When I rediscovered it in 2013 I did a complete re write to get to the storyline of today. "Where did your Heart go?" was published in July 2013. It was great to actually include my very first kiss in it as my main characters first kiss - such a special moment x
Since starting to write I have to admit that I am really enjoying the whole experience and reading readers reviews has just spurred me on to continue for them.
I hope you enjoy the books and would welcome any comments or questions you may have.

Interview With Audrina Lane:

  1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
To date I have completed 6 books since I started writing in 2013. My first novel ‘Where did your Heart go?’ was intended to be a standalone but after the response I received from readers and the way that I had left the story that it could be continued I went ahead and ended up writing the Heart Trilogy. This is made up of the 2nd book – Unbreak my Heart and the final book Closer to the Heart. On finishing these I really thought I was going to move away from the characters I had created but it was not to be when the evil character Felicity from the Trilogy kind of demanded I tell her side of the story. So then I embarked on the Bloodstained Heart Trilogy which can be read without reading the Heart Trilogy first but works better if read after the trilogy. Felicity is the tale of an 18 year old who through circumstances turns from a good girl into a complete bitch, intent on revenge.
My Heart Trilogy series is a realistic romance with an erotic twist whereas Bloodstained most definitely steps into the dark, erotic romance genre! I have written the first two in this series ‘Passion’ and ‘Revenge’ and am currently working on ‘Redemtpion’
Then whilst working on Bloodstained Heart my author friend and book cover designer suggested that we write a book together. I sent her a rough idea for a story about a racing driver and pit board model set at the Le Mans 24 Hour race. This book is out now and called ‘24Hrs to Love’ and it was such fun to write as we each took a character and wrote alternative chapters. We are now working on the next book in this series called 24Hrs to Heartbreak which see’s us with two different characters and at the Indy500 race. Believe me, if you love motor sport you’ll love this series but if you don’t you’ll still enjoy the romance between the characters.
  1. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
Well, to date I’m at 6 full length novels and a few short stories that have been included in various anthologies. I think my favourite to date is still my first book ‘Where did your Heart go?’ because there is so much of my own life and experience of 1st love contained in it!
  1. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
As I work full-time I don’t really get chance to structure my writing time, its more a case of when I have time to sit and write then I take full advantage. Generally speaking I love to write either early in the morning or on a Saturday or Sunday evening.
  1. Do you listen to music while you write?
I enjoy listening to music as I write, especially when I was working on the Heart Trilogy as my main female character is a radio dj and she loves music and the feelings and memories they evoke in her. I find that getting the right music to create a scene really helps. I have to admit that I actually can’t write in silence so I always need background noise or either music or the television. You may notice that all my novels (apart from the racing one) are named after songs. I choose the songs so that if you listen to them you can get a sense of what the story is about.
  1. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
I love getting comfy in my chair by the sofa and have my laptop balanced on my lap. However I can be found writing on the bus, in the summer outside on my garden table and chairs and on holiday on the beach!!
  1. When you write do you write the first draft on a computer or paper and pen?
I always write directly to my laptop and then save to multiple places as there is nothing worse than losing your writing due to an un-expected computer crash. I do sometimes write notes in pen, but its very rare!
  1. If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?
New Zealand, preferable the top of the North Island called the Bay of Islands or the top of the South Island where all the vineyards are. It’s a perfect country and at the moment one of the books I’m working on is set there!
  1. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I guess I must be mad as I’m working on 3 different novels and also need to write a short story for an anthology due out in February.
Bloodstained Heart – Part 3. Redemption. I’m currently about half way with that book to finish the trilogy.
Bonfire Heart – This is a standalone spin off from the Heart Trilogy. It’s the story of Sebastian and Lena who turn up in Closer to the Heart. It originally started out as a short story but has grown a bit too long for that now. Again I’m roughly at the half way point with this story.
24Hrs to Heartbreak – Currently waiting for my co-author Rita Ames to get her next chapter back to me but we like to keep it tight and the story needs to finish in 24 chapters!! We’re currently on Chapter 7 and hoping for an end of May, 2018 release to coincide with the Indy 500 race.
