Sonnet Coupled, Roxanne’s New Adult Interracial Erotic Romance novel, releases April 25!
ER nurse Sonnet Mendoza’s new housemate Griffith Parker proves there is more to a man than meets the eye, and shows her there’s more to life than just her career.
Sheltered and cosseted, Sonnet Mendoza abided by her papi’s wishes her whole life: no boys, studies first and always. Now an ER nurse in a busy Chicago hospital, medical school is so close Sonnet can taste it. Just like her father always wanted. Just like she can taste all the things she wants—like Griffith Parker, the man of her dreams and her new housemate.
Working “graves” in a large hospital as a security guard while attending the police academy during the day doesn’t leave ex-Marine Griffith Parker any personal time, but after meeting the beautiful Sonnet Mendoza, business as usual is anything but. Sassy, smart…and interested in him, too? Except, she’s made an art of keeping her distance, and she’s been clear that her plans don’t include him. But the heart wants what the heart wants. His wants Sonnet. He’ll put it on the line to win her.
Roxanne D. Howard is a U.S. Army veteran who has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English. She loves to read poetry, classical literature, and Stephen King. Also, she is an avid Star Wars fan, musical theater nut, and marine biology geek. Roxanne resides in the western U.S., and when she’s not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband and children. Roxanne loves to hear from her readers, and encourages you to contact her via her website and social media.
I was excited to learn that Roxanne was not only a fellow romance author and reader, but that she was also a fellow veteran. I reached out to learn more, and found that she served for six years, both on active duty and with the Utah Army National Guard. She was administrative specialist, serving in an O-6 office (that’s a Colonel for you civilians out there – the one with the bird on their shirt) in Heidelberg, Germany.
She writes: “[I]t was a great post and I really enjoyed my time in the Army. It paid my way through school, and I’d definitely encourage my daughters and anyone interested to join. The military shapes lives.”
