Now let me tell you about Trent and his recent transformation into a man worthy of love.

One Man's Desperate need to be Loved.

No one has ever loved Trent before he met and fell for his executive assistant, Carrie. Not even his parents.

At the end of book 2 he asks Carrie to marry him. She agrees, but wants a long engagement.

Then his life unravels. His ex-fiancee from many years prior claims she's pregnant with his child from a recent night she drugged him. Her mafia connected father threatens Trent that he'll go after Carry if Trent doesn't marry his daughter. 

Trent has chased the she-devil off with bad behavior in the past, so he tries again. But this time Coco won't run. She wants his $42 billion. The only one who gets hurt by his actions is Carrie. She concludes he never loved her and moves on to a better guy.

His last attempt to win Carrie back ends with Trent tossed on a NYC sidewalk, devastated he has lost the only person who ever loved him. 

A priest helps him up, takes him back to the parish and listens to the longest confession the poor fellow has ever heard. Trent wants an exorcism, but the priest assures him he has no demon, only a knack for making very bad choices in life. He advises Trent to give away his money and start again.

So Trent fakes his death, moves to Iowa with a new face and name (Trevor). And this time he channels Carrie rather than his god awful father when stressed. And by doing so, he becomes a fabulous guy who not only changes himself, but the entire town. I believe this pass it forward influence is why Climbing Out of Hell is considered the best of the series by some reviewers.

Trent's first love, Carrie, remains his compass as he rebuilds his life from scratch, grows up, and becomes the man that Carrie had always seen inside him. And while he has lost her forever, he meets a new woman, better suited in all ways, only there's one problem. She's his brothers girlfriend, and the new Trevor will not go there.

  5. I have so many questions but since I just started reading this series, I'm going to limit my spoiler requests. Still wondering why Iowa? I'm sure the answer is somewhere.

  6. All your books sound great. So, it's really hard to choose one. Still, I would choose a PDF version of 'Ghost Lover' as your blog prize because it seems like an unconventional love story.
