A Higher Standard

Available now from romance author E.F. Dodd.

As one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors, real estate developer Gideon West has the golden touch. Both with the ladies – from Beacon Hill to Southie and all points in between – and every project he’s helmed for Standard Development. Everest’s life in her hometown of Mimosa revolves around one thing – the equine rescue she’s scrimped, saved and struggled to get off the ground since college. She appears to be the only one immune to the spell of the silver-tongued developer, but with each dimpled grin and blue-eyed glance, Everest can’t deny her immunity to his charm is waning. If she isn’t careful, Gideon might turn her carefully planned world upside down. Even worse is that maybe – just maybe – she wants him to.

About the Author

Like her heroines, E.F. Dodd came from a close-knit family in a small town in North Carolina. Although she dallied briefly with city life, she retreated back to the country, where she now lives with her long-time boyfriend and an English bulldog. From a young age, she enjoyed creating stories, including the time at five years old when she’d almost convinced her grandmother that she’d gone horseback riding all alone… until she added a friendly crab to the storyline. With age came wisdom and the understanding of how far to stretch a plotline. Now she pursues writing as a creative outlet and hopes, one day, to have this be her career instead of a pastime.

E.F. Dodd is available for interviews, contributed articles, guest posts, and Q&As.
