Spotlight on Bare Assets by M.L. Stephens

Blurb: With nothing but shattered dreams and a busted heart to fuel the way, Angela Fletcher drove out of Arkansas and never looked back.

Six years later, the new and improved version of the girl she used to be steered clear of romance, love and late night promises. The only pillow talk Angela engaged in these days, was making sure the person on the other pillow knew to lose her number as soon as he left the bed. She only had room for one love in her life and that was Bare Assets, the gentleman's club she poured her heart and soul into.

Dean Murray was the devil in disguise and had left behind enough broken hearted women to populate a small country. Angela would know. She was an expert markswoman who was skillfully self-trained at shooting down the good, the bad and the ugly of all masculine targets. After all, as the owner of the most successful strip club in Dallas, Texas, it was her business to know men.

Just as she begins to fall for Dean's silky words and passionate ways, her past and present unexpectedly collide and a meticulously planned future turns into unpredictable chaos. Is the smooth talking, denim wearing devil responsible for the chaos? Or have the secrets she left buried in Arkansas, coming back to haunt her?
Every story holds insight into the writer's soul. If the soul can't be found, the writer didn't bleed enough. ~ M.L. Stephens
I've been writing poetry and short stories for as long as I can remember. As life's challenges became more demanding, I put my love aside and worked the 9-5, always making one excuse after another as to why I didn't have the time to follow my dream. At the age of 40, I decided that my excuses were empty. If I wouldn't allow excuses from my children, then how could I accept them from myself. I opened up my laptop, typed the first word, and I fell deeper in love than before.
