Sex isn’t love.
Love isn’t sex.
And friendship is neither.

The son of a French Olympic skier and a Malaysian fashion designer, Ronin Alexander has lived the life of a nomad, traveling the world to find his next adventure.

Life takes a dramatic turn when he meets Evelyn, a beautiful scientist who owns a bath shop in Aspen, Colorado. They defy all the rules of relationships, falling hard and quickly in love.

Their world intertwines with Evelyn’s two best friends, the Governor and his soon-to-be wife. The four become close—very close.

When tragedy strikes, things from their pasts are unveiled—unimaginable truths and the grim realization that life will never be the same.

Jewel E. Ann steps into another dimension with this mind-bending thriller, a provocative story that pushes boundaries and tests the true meaning of love.

Jenny’s Review

This author, she knows exactly how to suck me in!!! Her writing just captures my attention and I’m all in. Like literally don’t put the book down, or else…..

My emotions were on a roll with this book. Hard to explain but if you have read this amazing author before, you know what I am saying. If you haven’t read her stories, DO IT!!! You’ll definitely be outta breath at times, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, keep going you’ll definitely love the cliffy😳 but no worries, book 2 will be out February 20th!!!

And Jewel E Ann, you simply continue to amaze me with your stories, I never know what Im going to get, BUT I do know I will love it!!!


Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
