Synopsis: New York’s Finest

February 14, 2015

LADIES AND GENTS! I have an announcement!You know that guy I featured on my blog a few months

ago? The really, really hot Irish rugby player who plays the position of ‘hooker’ in the RLI (Rugby League

International)? The one with the questionable fashion choices leading me to ask whether he was the

lovechild of a leprechaun and a hobbit? The one with the anger management issues and the body of a

gladiator and the face of a movie star? Ronan Fitzpatrick? Yeah, that guy.

Well, I have a confession to make…


Annie Catrel, social media expert extraordinaire at Davidson & Croft Media and clandestine

celebrity blogger, can make anyone shine in the court of public opinion. She is the Socialmedialite,

anonymous creator of New York’s Finest and the internet’s darling. Virtual reality is Annie’s forte, but

actual reality? Not so much.


Ronan Fitzpatrick, aka the best hooker the world of rugby has seen in decades, despises the

media—social or otherwise. The press has spun a web of lies depicting him as rugby’s wild and reckless

bad boy.

Suspended from his team, Ronan has come to Manhattan to escape the drama, lay low, fly under the

radar. Only, Ronan isn’t easy to overlook, and he can’t escape the notice of the Socialmedialite…


When Ronan is sent to Davidson & Croft Media to reshape his public image, he never expects to

cross paths with shy but beautiful Annie, nor does he expect his fierce attraction to her. He couldn’t be

happier when her boss suggests pairing them together.

What lengths will Annie take to keep her virtual identity concealed? And what happens when the

hooker discovers who the hermit really is?

The Hooker and the Hermit is a collaboration between authors L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid, is a full

length 100k word novel, and is a standalone.

about penny reid


SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever

works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also

occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy

traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married

and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block

carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m

intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their

A girl who has everything. A guy who has everything to lose.

Some things can’t be…

Like there has ever been any doubt which sorority my family expects me to pledge. I’m a third-generation legacy. On the first day of rush, I realize I’m in trouble. I’m not like the other girls in the house. But as long as my parents control my college funds, resisting is futile. Until Zach, the live-in houseboy, who’s quite possibly the hottest guy I will ever meet, serves me a cupcake and flashes me a sympathetic look. With one enigmatic smile, he flips my heart and my world upside down. My parents will cut me off if they even suspect I’m interested in a house guy. But I can’t stay away from him. And so I pledge the house for all the wrong reasons.

Living in a sorority? I get flipped a load of crap about being a live-in servant, the help. Easy access to the hottest girls on campus? Not with the unbreakable rule—get caught with one of the girls and you’re fired. Immediately. Lose this job and I can’t afford college. I sure as hell can’t ask my parents for help. They wish I’d never been born. Considering what I did, I don’t blame them. I’ve learned to think of the girls like sisters. Until Alexis pledges the house. Now sister is the last thing on my mind. 

*** Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. ***



Getting out of the house and going to class was the freest time of my days. When I was on campus, I wasn’t a servant. I wasn’t beneath anyone. I was just me. I was looking forward to The History of Rock and Roll as a break from my science-heavy schedule of the past few years. And time away from the girls and their drama. I’d been lucky and had had only a couple of classes with any of them over the years. When I did, it was always awkward. 
I settled in the back of the classroom. When I looked up, I caught a glimpse of a Double Deltsie light blue pledge T-shirt, nicely filled out by a pair of perfect breasts. Shit. Then I lifted my gaze, saw Alexis’ face, and cursed my odd combination of good and bad luck.  
I hoped she didn’t see me, afraid if she did, she would diss and ignore me. And even more worried she wouldn’t.  
I don’t know why I cared what the girls thought. In high school, being the star jock had been enough to impress any girl I wanted. But being the houseboy was enough to make me beneath the Double Deltsies. As I began my third year in the house, I still had my pride. Though I didn’t know how I’d managed to hang on to it. Seth, Paul, and Dillon helped.
I didn’t miss the way the other guys in the class watched Alexis as she strode to the back of the classroom and took the seat next to me. Double Deltsies stood out wherever they went. She’d already mastered their confident walk. She probably came preprogrammed with it. 
“Is this seat taken?” She slid into it without waiting for an answer. 
“You’re supposed to sit with the Double Deltsies.” I wasn’t about to encourage her. She made my pulse race too damn fast. 
When she smiled, her eyes danced. “I am.” 
“Do I look like one of your sisters?” I said. 
Her gaze slid over me like she was taking full measure of me, letting it linger on my shoulders and chest. “In that indie band T-shirt? No.” She grinned. “I like that group.” 
“Shit.” I couldn’t resist teasing her. I reached for the hem of my shirt. 
“What are you doing?” She laughed. 
“I can’t wear this now. It’s tainted. I’ll to have to burn it when I get back to the house. By the time the girls from the house like a band, it’s way too mainstream.” I pulled the shirt over my head and dropped it on my desk, waiting for her reaction.
