Book & Author details:

The Duality Principle by Rebecca Grace Allen
Published by: Samhain Publishing
Publication date: November 11th 2014
Genres: Erotica, Romance

Sometimes A + B = O. Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.
Gabriella Evans’s life exists in terms of logic and definitions. She’s holed up in Portland, Maine, for the summer to work on her PhD thesis, but something is screwing up her concentration: the rumble of a motorcycle every time the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies rides down her street.

When her best friend talks her into a blind date, she finds herself out with the opposite of her fantasy. He’s polite and well-mannered, yet something behind his crisply tailored shirt doesn’t add up—a rebellious gleam in his eye that piques her curiosity.

Orphaned at fifteen, Connor Starks has finally put the years of failing grades, breaking laws and breaking hearts behind him. The only holdover? His penchant for getting down and dirty in public places. But Gabriella makes him want to prove he’s become a better man.

Nothing intrigues Gabriella more than a problem she can’t solve. But the more Connor tries to bury his past, the more determined she is to uncover it. And what she finds makes all her trusty logic begin to fail her…

Warning: This book contains a summer romance, dirty talk, dockside kissing, motorcycles and tattoos. Features a rebellious nerdy girl with an appetite for outdoor sex and light spanking, and a bad boy who’s turned good…or at least he’s trying.

Behind the scenes with Connor and Gabriella

Character profile of Connor

·         Name: Connor Starks
·         Age: 24 years old
·         Place of birth: Augusta, Maine
·         Ethnic background: Caucasian
·         Values and politics: Family and friends matters to him. He doesn’t pay much attention to politics.
·         Education: Graduated South Portland High (barely). Has an Associate’s Degree in computer science from Southern Maine Community College
·         Height: 6’4”
·         Weight: 190 lbs
·         Body type: tall, muscular and broad. Gabriella’s first impression is that he looks like a lumberjack beneath his boxy button-down shirt and khakis. Sturdy, like he could chop down a tree with his bare hands, carry the wood home and build a house for her out of it.
·         Eye color: blue
·         Hair: baby-fine, chin-length dark brown hair that he’s unsuccessfully attempted to comb neatly back. It’s curling up under his ears
·         Face shape: v-shaped, boyishly handsome with a chiseled jaw and dimpled smile, freckles on his cheek bones. He has eyelashes longer than anyone over six foot should have, and an indentation above his lip that Gabriella wants to dip her finger into.
·         Tattoos: one on his left bicep of two enmeshed dragons that look like Celtic knot work.
·         Any current health problems or chronic condition: he had a delayed growth spurt as a teenager due to malnutrition in his childhood.
·         How does he dress: Connor dresses in boxy buttoned-down shirts and khakis for work, and does this to make himself feel better, to boost his sense of self-worth, however he is most comfortable in t-shirts and jeans
·         Grooming: Connor tries to be neat and clean shaven, but his hair often becomes unruly. When not at work, he appears clean but a bit scruffy.
·         Worst fear: that he isn’t worthy of love
·         Strongest motivation: To not be like his father.
·         Immediate Goal: to find a way to turn himself into the kind of guy Gabriella would want to be with.

Character profile of Gabriella

·         Name: Gabriella Evans
·         Age: 24 years old
·         Place of birth: Boston, Massachusetts
·         Ethnic background: Caucasian
·         Values and politics: when politicians start believing in math and science, she’ll start believing in politicians.
·         Education:  currently a PhD candidate in MIT’s Applied mathematics program
·         Height: 5’ 5”
·         Weight: 135 lbs
·         Body type: athletic from her years of hiking and paddle surfing
·         Eye color: grey
·         Hair:  Elbow length and ash-blond, often in a braid
·         Face shape: heart shaped, with glasses.
·         Tattoos: a butterfly on the patch of skin where her thigh meets her hip. She also has a piercing on the inner flat of her ear
·         Any current health problems or chronic condition: does being ignored by your parents count as a health problem?
·         How does she dress: she’s prefers to be comfortable—shorts, a t-shirt and hiking boots are the norm—but she knows how to look cute when she wants to.
·         Grooming: Gabriella wears very little make up and doesn’t bother to style her hair, often letting the locks dry on their own, relying on the laws of entropy to decide her look for the day.
·         Worst fear: That there is something freakishly wrong with her because of her kinkier interests, and that her mother’s warning that she’ll never be satisfied will turn out to be true.
·         Strongest motivation: To prove that she can’t be both a serious, career-driven mathematician and still long for hot sex with the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies.
·         Immediate Goal: to figure out the mystery that is Connor Starks. Is he a good guy or a rebel, because he surely cannot be both.
