Sisters can be the greatest friends or the worst enemies. In Treasure Me, Autumn’s closest friend is her sister, Jessica. Raised into a life on the run as thieves and con-artists, both girls have a ton of baggage. Through it all, they looked to each other for friendship, love, and support. In Re/Leased, Jessica (who went by Summer back then,) was in a coma. Autumn’s life revolved around making sure her sister had the care she needed to stay alive.
Now that Jessica is awake and dealing with the aftereffects of the medical trauma and finding out that the man who raised her was, in fact, her kidnapper and not her father, she and Autumn clash. However no matter the disagreement, nothing will ever separate these sisters.
This relationship is probably one of the dearest to me that I’ve ever written. I have two sisters, and we are not that close, mostly due to the fact that they are so much younger than me. Even now that we’re older, we haven’t developed that closeness. However I had a cousin who was like a sister to me. She was three months older, and we were best buddies from birth. No matter who came into or went out of our lives, we knew we would always be there for each other. I loved her like she was part of me. She passed away fourteen years ago, and not a day goes by that I don’t mourn her loss.
I see our relationship in the closeness between my daughters, twins who are night and day in their personalities and looks—just like my cousin and I were. When I write Autumn/Brea and Jessica, I look to those relationships to guide how they act and react with each other. In some ways, writing scenes with Jessica and Brea/Autumn are one way I revisit my memories of my cousin.
When you read Treasure Me, I hope you enjoy the bond between these sisters, and that it brings you the joy it brings to me.
Relocating to Kansas City with David and working for SAFE Security was everything Autumn thought she wanted…except that the job isn’t what she thought it would be, and her past seems to have a stranglehold on her emotions.
When Autumn takes a case without informing the rest of SAFE Security, she finds herself in hot water when secret victory blows up in her face. Her impulsive mistake almost costs their lives—and she soon finds herself jobless. Reeling from this failure and the way it’s damaged her relationships with David and the team, she vows to start fresh—with a new name and in a new city. Unfortunately a local crime boss has other ideas.
In the midst of a mission, David must rush back to try to stop Autumn from leaving—only to find that Autumn and her sister have disappeared. Can he find them in time to save them and his relationship with the woman he treasures?
In Treasure Me, Michele Zurlo delivers a sexy, action-packed adventure tale full of emotional twists and turns.
