“Chelle Cordero will join us in discussing her novel, Bartlett’s Rule. This is a story of a woman recovering from the devastating effects of rape while she learns to trust and fall in love again. The story explores the secondary victim challenges facing the man she meets (after the rape) and the effects on people around them.”
Jeanine Swatton is the CEO/PR Director of Swatton Live, LLC. She is the co-founder of “Preventing Abuse Against Women”. Jeanine holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Boston University. Her vision is to help women who are victims of abuse and provide them with the services and tools to become empowered.
Falling in love was never the challenge; being there for each other, knowing just what to say and making it work is the real test. Paige and Lon are real; they are human, they cry and they laugh. Paige has to learn to trust. Lon has to learn to be patient. When Paige Andrews is given the assignment of courting a famous writer for the publishing company she works for, she meets and entices the sexy, charming and thoroughly dangerous womanizer, Lon Bartlett. Lon immediately takes a not-so-professional, personal interest in the young woman and pursues her. Lon is thrilled when Paige finally succumbs to his charms only to find that her haunting past sets off a terrifying reaction. Lon learns a heartbreaking reality – Paige is a rape survivor.
