Read an Excerpt from Love under Contract by Dean Hodel


Barnes & Noble

Michael Travers gambled on love and lost big. When the woman of his dreams rejected him, he locked his heart up and went to work. Money has been his mantra, god, and king ever since. However, when his job at Families, Inc. sends him to fix the competition for a large corporation, it lands Michael right back into the life of the woman who broke her heart.

Sadonna Alston learned the value of hard work and following the rules. It’s what got her a scholarship to college and pushed her to open her own non-profit company called Quality Homes. Now, someone is breaking the rules and putting all her hard work at risk.

Families, Inc. wants to buy her out, and they’ll use any trick they can -including pitting her against the man who once held her heart.

As old feelings resurface, will Sadonna and Michael be able to keep their livelihoods, and not lose their hearts? With everything they love on the line, Sadonna and Michael will need to decide if they have a love that breaks all the rules or one that makes the rules.

Love Under Contract is a sweet romance, with a touch of mystery, and a dash of intrigue that will make you believe in a second chance to get it right.


“Michael, I have to ask if you plan on staying around.  You made a lot of promises, and my aunt doesn’t need any more problems or disappointments.”
“I’m not passing through the night. I care for Sadonna, and I plan on staying if she’ll have me.
“Okay, and Pop is staying too, right?”
“Yeah, we’re a pair.”
“Good. Sadonna likes family.  I just want you to be sure. Now that you know the answer to the problem, you might not want to stay.”
“What does that mean?”
Christopher sighed. “I’m saying I know some guys like a mystery, and then when they go to the sex step, it’s over.”
“Is that what you think of me, Christopher?”
Christopher looked away. “Okay, so let me ask you, what do you like about my aunt?”
“I think she’s smart, too giving, and very compassionate.”
Christopher held up his hands. “Whoa, you can stop there.”
“Are you happier now?
“Well, yes, I am. I wanted to make sure you could name something about her and not what she does. The last guy sounded like he liked her resume. I hope my aunt and my mother find someone who likes the amazing people they are.”
Michael nodded. “Are we good?”
“Yeah, and you’ll let me know about the guy around my mom?”
“You got it.” Michael watched Christopher go back into the building and got in the car with Pop.
