The place where dreams fade and hope dies.
That’s what it’s meant for the five years that Garrett has been behind bars. But now hope is on the horizon and he’s daring to dream again: small dreams, small hopes.
Getting his GED would be a start. If only his prison-appointed teacher Miss Ella Newsome wasn’t so damn sexy.
As Garrett and Ella start to play a dangerous game, the price could be higher than either of them have guessed.
This story first appeared in the anthology HOT FOR TEACHER in 2016. It has since been extended with new scenes, more heartache and even more heat.
Garrett; prisoner 97813 is a hardened man, with a gentle soul. Someone who is afraid of getting too close, for fear of rejection. No confidence, yet a thirst for learning, even if he didn’t realize it at first. Ella Newsome was brought into the prison to teach a GED class. What she didn’t expect was the compliance of the inmates. She also did not foresee ever lusting after one.
Behind the Wall was a nice, quick read. Writing a prison romance has to be something so difficult, as there is always someone watching. Jane did this without hesitation and I am sure, very little effort. The way that the plot was set and the circumstances unfolded was genius. I loved it. Absolutely loved it!! Please make sure to pick up your copy and meet Garrett and Ella today!!
