Cover Reveals from Mary Elizabeth, J.A. Essen, A. Meredith Walters, & Mary A. Wasowski

Title: Low
Series: Low #1
Author: Mary Elizabeth
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Hang Le
 Release Date: February 1, 2016


It’s hard living on the wrong side of the tracks.

Lowen Seely has a criminal record to prove it. Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he fights instinct and tries honesty. But hunger becomes painful, and bills are due. Forced to choose between what is right and wrong, the boy from the hood learns abiding by the rules is nearly impossible when corruption is in your blood.

Falling for an outlaw has changed everything.

Poesy Ashby is the definition of ride or die, even when it means turning her back on freedom. The girl from the suburbs gives conformity the middle finger. Bonnie and Clyde have nothing on her love story.

On the run with consequences in the rearview mirror, Lowen and Poesy accept the truth: they are the bad guys.

But can they get away with their crimes?

“Keep the engine running,” I say. “If I’m not out in five minutes, leave.”

Poe nods her head, but doesn’t argue.

When the nine o’clock hour comes, both she and I watch the clock on the dashboard turn to one minute after.

“You’ll need to keep your mask on, Poesy. Make sure none of your hair is showing,” I say. “Keep your head down the entire time.”

“Okay,” she answers in a small voice.

“If you see cops—”

“I know what to do, Lowen. I know you want me to leave you.” She sighs. “But I don’t know if I can.”

Despite our circumstances, I smirk. “Hopefully you won’t have to.”

At nine thirty, Poe and I switch seats, and she gets behind the wheel while I load the pistol. With hands that shake uncontrollably, I place the ski mask over my head but don’t pull it down my face. I help Poesy with hers, tucking in every stray strand of hair so they remain unseen.

She grabs my wrist, and our eyes meet. I see fear combined with love and loyalty in her stare.

I kiss her knuckles and promise with the chance of lying, “We’re going to be okay.”

Unlike when we drove into the garage, the streets are alive and filled with a variety of automobiles, and dirty sidewalks carry several pedestrians. The forty-second drive to the bank feels like forty years. Thick blood courses through my veins, and I feel it flow through arteries and vessels, nourishing muscle and bone. My head echoes with the thump, thump, thump of my hard heartbeat. Every breath is shallower than the one before it.

“Pull down your mask,” I say, but my voice sounds foreign and feels a million miles away.

As Poe drives into California Credit Union’s parking lot, I grip the cold steel in my hand.

The edges of my vision blur; I’m blinded by adrenaline.

My skin crawls like I’m covered in spiders; I’m delirious with edginess.

“Your ski mask,” Poesy shrieks. “Cover your fucking face, Lowen.”

My girl reaches over and pulls it down for me. The car stops to a screeching halt, and reality crashes into me in a brutal rush, stripping me of air and voice.

“If we’re in this, you need to go,” Poesy says in a calm but stern tone, hidden behind her black mask.

There’s peace in her eyes.

There’s strength in the girl who stayed with me when I was locked up.

The one who’s remained by my side, believing and starving all at the same time.

With the gun in my hand and determination in my heart, I leave Poesy in the car and push open the glass double doors into the bank.

As I step foot onto the burgundy carpet, I yell, “Everyone down on the fucking floor!”

There are only three of us tonight vying for a unique distraction. When Victoria opens the door, two thoughts cross my mind at the same time. ONE, there’s only one girl, and this could get costly and TWO, this may possibly be the most beautiful creature I’ve ever laid eyes on. That being said, I slightly stumble over my own feet as I make my way into the room. Fortunate to be at the back of the group, no one notices.

She’s standing in the room wearing a purple leather open-cup bustier, matching blindfold and nothing else. We all make our way around her to examine the possible purchase. She’s quite tall, probably pushing six feet. Her beautiful, tanned body and raven black hair are such a far removal from my usual likes. Her skin is flawless save for a small scripted tattoo on her right shoulder: I vincet. Latin most likely. I’ll have to look it up.

Victoria chimes in, “Jade comes to us today from Barbados. She has willingly agreed to her current arrangement in exchange for monetary assistance for her family’s failing business. She’s an exquisitely beautiful, young woman as you can see, along with spectacular sea-green eyes.”

The bidding begins at one hundred thousand, and I could care less. I don’t even pay attention to the escalating price. Out of sheer instinct I just keep raising my bidding flag until everyone realizes that continuing is a futile maneuver.

“Going once, going twice… SOLD! For eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars to the yellow bidder.”

The grumblings of the others barely even register as they step out of the room. I’m stupefied and in awe. She’s everything I never wanted.

I enjoyed writing short stories and poems when I was in middle school, and won a few contests with my poetry, one of which was a published Christmas poem. I enjoy reading everything from dark erotica, to bio-tech sci-fi, to fantasy. I have both a romance and a fantasy book plotted out, and plan on releasing one in the first quarter and one in the second quarter of 2016.

ONSbanner1 OneDaySoon Amazon     OneDaySoon AmazonHe found me in blood and tears. I stayed with him through darkness and fire. We loved each other in the moment between innocence and bitter truth. We were the kids easily ignored, who grew into adults we hardly knew. We weren’t meant to last forever. And we didn’t. He ran away. I tried to move on. Yet I never stopped thinking about the boy who had fought to keep me alive in a world that would have swallowed me whole. He was the past that I buried, but never forgot. Until the day I found him again, years after believing I had lost him forever. And in cold, resentful eyes, I saw the heart of the man who had been everything when I had nothing at all. So I vowed to hold onto the second chance that was stolen from the children we had been. Sometimes fate is ugly. Life can be twisted. And who we are can be ruined by who we once were. For two people who had survived so much, we would have to learn how to hold on before we were forced to let go.

Author Bio

I am a dreamer. I've always been a dreamer. Some may not have worked out the way I hoped they would, but I also believe that everything happens for a reason.

Writing has changed my entire life. It brings happiness and fulfillment to areas in my life that I didn't even know I was missing. It's also one of the hardest jobs I've ever done. It takes me away from my family, friends, and the little day-to-day tasks that once upon a time seemed normal. Sometimes I like to revisit my portfolio of old short stories, poems, and the inspirational quotes I have kept for many years. Reading through it all shows how far I've come and that the journey I am on now is exactly what I dreamed of many years ago. This makes me smile.

A long time ago, I used to write short stories and poems in journals and kept them privately to myself. It took quite some time and many sacrifices, but now I have  four published books and have my very own writing cave. What the heck is that? Well, it's my second home where I laugh, dream, imagine, and write my heart out to hopefully produce something that will make other people smile.

I call New Jersey home where I share my life with my husband, Henry, and our three sons.  

Life is an incredible journey.
We are all an open book. Every day is a new chapter to write in our story. Lessons are to be learned and shared.
Keep moving forward.
Never give up on your dreams.
Smile, and never let anyone dull your Sparkle.

Believe me...Your spirit will thank you for it.
