Nicole Chambers’ track record with men is bad. Very bad. She’s sworn off dating for the foreseeable future. Recovering from an assault by the last man she’d only casually dated, Nicole is attacked again in her rural home. If not for the hot guy who showed up about her rental cottage, she would have been dead for sure.
Her self-imposed sabbatical is soon tested when he moves into her backyard.
Kyle’s mother was kidnapped and murdered when he was just a kid. Filled with rage and a determination to hunt down the man who became known as the Clove Hitch Killer, he goes into law enforcement. When his efforts lead him to Nicole Chambers, he falls for her completely.
Now he’s torn between keeping her safe, or using her as bait to capture a killer.
Between Midnight and Dawn by Cheryl Yeko is a dark suspenseful romance novel. It is full of mystery, angst, suspense, and passion. The writing it great as well as the characters, but It does have some trigger elements, so you are aware.
Kyle Wade has been focused most of his life on finding the killer who murdered his mother twenty-two years ago. He went into the police force and took it upon himself to find this murderer labeled the Clove Hitch Killer (C.H.K.). Currently, Kyle is stalking a man he believes could be C.H.K. and finds the suspect following a beautiful woman named Nicole Chambers. Afraid that she is his next victim, Kyle does everything in his power to keep her safe, which includes renting the cottage in her backyard. He quickly finds himself caught between wanting to keep Nicole safe and chasing after C.H.K. Can he do both?
Glancing at the video feed, he saw Nicole step into the backyard with a plate of meat. The outdoor light was on, and he could clearly make out her features. She nervously bit her bottom lip. Sheryl followed her out and laughingly took the platter from her hand, then gave her a small shove toward the cottage. Nicole gave her friend a dirty look, but took a tentative step toward them.
“Oh, shit,” he said, glancing around at all the surveillance equipment crowding the living room of the cottage. He couldn’t let Nicole come in here.
Rob got to his feet, openly laughing now. “Let me guess, they’re coming over?”
Kyle sprinted to his refrigerator, grabbed the chicken breast he had thawing for dinner, and entwined two unopened bottles of beer between his fingers. “Let’s go,” he snapped, racing toward the door.
Still grinning, Rob opened it for him and followed him outside as Nicole neared the front porch. Kyle screeched to a halt, and tried to appear natural, and not like the jackass he was. If she came inside, this night would end very badly.
“Hi, Nicole.” He was pleased at how normal he sounded. “We were heading over to see if we could share your grill.”
“That’s great.” She waved toward her house. “We bought way too much food, and need someone to help us eat it.” She held out her hand toward Rob. “Hi, I’m Nicole.”
Rob took her hand and gave it a firm shake. “It’s nice to meet you, Nicole.” He glanced past her to Sheryl, who was watching them expectantly.
Nicole laughed, glancing down at his plate. “Bring your chicken and we’ll toss it on the grill.” Her gaze slid back to Rob, her eyes held a teasing glint. “I’ll introduce you to Sheryl.”
She headed back toward her place. For a moment, Kyle’s attention was riveted by her nicely swaying hips, until Rob gave him a little shove and got his ass moving.

My writing career began in 2011, when my wonderful husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas and changed my world. I started reading romance novels, and fell in love with them. I decided to try writing one myself. I disappeared into my room over a long Wisconsin winter and wrote my debut novel, Protecting Rose. I sent my baby out to three publishing houses and was delighted to receive two offers. I quickly accepted with Soul Mate Publishing. Protecting Rose went on to win the 2012 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence in the romantic suspense category. Well, I was hooked.
Today, I’m a multi-published, award-winning author, and live in Wisconsin with my husband Patrick. I love to read, play piano, and spend time with family and friends. I enjoy novels with fast-paced action and steamy romance, protective alpha men and strong heroines. I belong to several writing groups, including Romance Writers of America (RWA) and Sisters In Crime.
In 2013, I came aboard Soul Mate Publishing as an acquiring editor and have over fifty edited novels under my belt. I can also be found under the pen name of CiCi Cordelia, with my writing partner and BFF, Char Chaffin.
