“No pictures,” I told Hannah on Skype. “No specifics, no last name, no phone number. Nothing. I don’t want to know you, and I don’t want you to know me. We write together online, that’s it. I’m not looking for a new friend. I’m looking for a writing partner.”
What is it about a bad boy? It has actually been an ongoing debate that my friend and I have (though I secretly might agree with her) on the merits of the bad boy versus the good boy in literature. She is invariably reasonable in her arguments on behalf of why a fondness for bad boys can only lead to disaster and at the time I have trouble adequately supporting my position. Almost immediately afterwards I will often find myself indulging in a story featuring an irascible literary character not unlike Matt Sky who is most definitely a very bad boy.
From best-selling eBook author M. Pierce comes the first novel in a provocative erotic trilogy where an anonymous online writing partnership turns into an uncontrollable, passionate obsession.

At twenty-eight, Matt Sky has the perfect life. He has a beautiful girlfriend, a massive inheritance, and four national best-sellers — all penned under his airtight alias, M. Pierce.
At twenty-seven, Hannah Catalano is a train wreck. Her boyfriend is a deadbeat and her job is abysmal.
Matt and Hannah meet online as writing partners. Their relationship is safe, anonymous, and innocent…
Until Matt sees a picture of Hannah. Hannah’s picture sparks an attraction Matt is powerless to ignore. When circumstance brings Matt and Hannah together, the strangers begin a love story that’s passionate, poignant, unforgettable, and unstoppable.
I was utterly captivated by this story from the first page. What was supposed to be a simple online writing partnership quickly evolved for Night Owl and Little Bird. Matthew Sky lives in secrecy, only a select few know of his stratospheric success as novelist M. Pierce. The story they were working on together created an unexpected bond. Hannah Catalano in contrast is unemployed, her relationship with her boyfriend is a bust and she is moving in with her parents. Though Matt is wealthy, successful and already attached, he is drawn to his new writing partner and finds himself breaking all of his own rules.
Night Owl seizes the reader immediately and despite the hero’s definite lack of interpersonal skills and the fact that he is cheating on his girlfriend. You can’t help but find yourself beguiled by Matt and Hannah’s tempestuous relationship as unconventionally as it may have begun. I enjoyed every moment of the first book in this trilogy and am anxiously awaiting Last Light‘s publication this fall.
Matt had a sprawling, high-rise apartment in downtown Denver. I probably should have guessed. The rooms were clean and modern, harshly white, with light hardwood floors and gorgeous area rugs. The fixtures were all of matching brushed metal and the décor was spare but tasteful. I recognized a framed John Singer Sargent print on the wall.
Matt loomed as I padded through the neat, quiet rooms. Each time I smiled at him, I thought I caught a glimmer of anxiety in his expression. Why would he be nervous? Was my opinion really that important to him?
“This place is lovely,” I said. “It’s amazing. I can’t believe it was ever messy.”
“Oh, I had a maid come through,” he said.
“Laurence!” I squealed when I saw the rabbit’s hutch in the living room. The hutch was as swanky as Matt’s apartment, made of beautiful varnished wood with little gold knobs.
“Your lady love is back,” Matt said to the rabbit.
We watched Laurence hop around his hutch for a while. Matt’s hovering was making me uneasy—and strangely aroused. He hadn’t touched me yet, but I knew he planned to. I assumed his bedroom was down the hall.
Was something wrong? Tension and desire made my stomach clench.
We drifted into the kitchen, Matt right at my back.
“Nice.” I swallowed and brushed my hand over the granite countertop. Even the kitchen was immaculate.
I could feel Matt behind me. I thought I heard him take a soft breath. My skin prickled. God, if he didn’t touch me soon—
I exhaled in a rush as Matt brought his chest flush against my back. He pinned me to the edge of the island and cupped my breasts from behind. I moaned.
“Are you ready?” he whispered in my ear.
