(Indulgence Book 4)
by NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author Aleatha Romig
Forbidden love…is undeniable.
When she was younger, like all little girls, Sophie Hawkins believed in fantasies. She believed in happily-ever-after and that one day her prince would come. What made Sophie’s dreams a bit different was that the man of her dreams wasn’t a fictional prince but her best friend’s dad.
Matt was handsome and nice, the kind of man every woman would want.
Time passes, and through the years, Sophie’s reality changes, yet her attraction and memories of Matt Hamilton never fade. Where boys and men are concerned, Matt remains her gold standard.
When his daughter was young, Matt Hamilton had it all: a family and success.
With the ticking of the clock and changing of the calendar, seasons pass and situations adjust. Business success remains, but personally, his world changes…until the day fate sets the undeniable in motion.
Sophie was a sweet little girl, his daughter’s best friend, and a ray of undeniable sunshine. That was before. Now she’s more. She is a grown woman.
Who can deny the undeniable?
Have you been Aleatha’d?
Undeniable, part of the Indulgence series of stand-alone steamy stories, will heat your ereader and make you hot and bothered. Undeniable is a fun forbidden-love story that will whisk the reader away to a time when fantasies could come true.
Excerpt from Undeniable:
The man steps closer, and I wonder if he could be the host. As he nears, I take in his attire. The party was formal, and he's wearing a tuxedo. The tie is now loosened, and I can't stop my grin. It's a real tie, one he had to actually tie into a bow, not the clip kind boys my age would wear to a dance.
“It's beautiful. Isn't it?” His voice fades into the sound of the soft waves on the shore as he stands with one hand in his pocket, looking out over the bay.
Following his gaze, I nod. “It is. I would never tire of this as my backyard.”
His laugh rumbles, sending vibrations to my core. For only a moment I'm afraid he's making fun of me, but then he turns and extends his hand.
“Hardly a yard. The water is paradise. Come see. There's a manatee getting closer.”
I do as he says. As his fingers encase mine, my steps momentarily stutter. There's something in his touch, warmth that shoots through me from my fingers to my toes. It’s like electricity.
Shyly I raise my eyes to his, wondering if he feels it too.
Instead of confirming or denying, he pulls me closer to the edge of the stone decking. Without letting go of my hand, he points with his other. “Look. See the ripples?”
“I do!” I keep my excitement to a stage whisper.
The water moves. The rays of moonlight no longer reflect, showcasing the large water mammal.
“Oh, it's so big!”
He turns toward me with a lopsided grin. “Words to a man's heart.”
I fight to pull my hand away, knowing that pink is filling my cheeks. “I meant the manatee. If I hadn't lived the last eight years in Florida, I would be petrified with one so close.”
He releases my hand and casually wraps his arm around my shoulder. “Then I wish you were new to the area.”
I try to swallow as I turn within his grasp, facing him. “You do?”
“Yes, then you would be a damsel in distress, and I could protect you.”
“A true knight in shining armor?”
His embrace of my shoulders lowers to the small of my back as he pulls me closer. “No, Sophie Hawkins, I'm not a knight.”

Interview with Aleatha Romig:
Q: Hi Aleatha! Can you tell us a little about yourself?
AR: Hi, I'm Aleatha Romig. I write many different genres, but am best known for my dark and dangerous romantic suspense sagas. However, even I need a bit of a break from all the intrigue and layers. Therefore, I also write rom com and erotic romance. I enjoy writing different genres just as readers enjoy reading them. My new release Undeniable is a standalone erotic romance. These stories in my Indulgence series are super sexy, a bit over the top, a tad of taboo, and always a HEA.
Q: Tell us about your publishing journey. Did you always want to be an author?
AR: I have been published since 2011. I was a dental hygienist for over 25 years. I never imagined having the career I do. My first book CONSEQUENCES released nine years ago. It has been an amazing whirlwind since then. I have loved the relationship with my readers and my readers with my characters. My third book hit New York Times bestseller. In 2013 I became a full time author. My husband and I have traveled around the country and world meeting our readers and it has been fantastic. My first book was originally published through a vanity publisher. In 2012 I took back my rights and self published. I'm not hybrid, meaning self/indie and also traditional. I'm always willing to try to reach new readers. While romance is where I'm best known, my thrillers are traditionally published.
Q: For those who are new to your books, what is the story about?
AR: UNDENIABLE is not my average story. It is a super sexy, fun, taboo, and a bit over the top age gap erotic romance. It is a standalone in my Indulgence series. All of the stories in this series are about super sexy fun. They are not intended to be “deep” or “reflective.” Those are my dark romance series: Consequences, Infidelity, Sparrow Webs, etc. I have written the Indulgence series for fun and they hopefully are read that way. Just an escape from reality. We can all use one of those from time to time.
Q: What is your ideal reading experience?
AR: My ideal reading experience is my kindle, a bottle of water, a beach chair, and a sunny shore by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. I could get lost in books for weeks with my toes in the sand and the sound of waves as my backdrop.
Q: Where can our readers find you? (Social media, website, etc.)
AR: I can be found…
