Indie Author Lori Ryan

Andrew Weston and Jill Walsh had to be the two most unlikely people to fall in love.

When Jill’s first husband’s love for her simply fizzled and died, Jill knew she’d never trust that love could last again. And after Andrew’s first love betrayed him in the most brutal way possible, he knew he might fall in love again someday, but there was no way he’d ever make himself vulnerable again by confessing those feelings, if he did.

But in Lori Ryan‘s novel “Penalty Clause” fate has a different ending in mind for these two, and when Andrew discovers his love for Jill, he knows the only way to get her to stay with him forever is to offer her an ironclad penalty clause in a prenuptial agreement.

He stays with her forever, or he loses everything he owns – the millions he’s worked for, his property, his cars, everything.

Now he just needs to hope that’s enough to hold onto Jill forever.

The Indie Author Life

Indie author Lori Ryan's dog Rev

Lori Ryan’s dog Rev

In Lori Ryan’s books, it’s not just the human characters she works hard on, it’s the canine ones, as well. On her website, Lori lets us “Meet The Dogs.” Here’s one:

Rev stars in “Penalty Clause” as Jill Walsh’s happier than life chocolate labradoodle. In real life, Rev is one of Lori’s dogs and is almost exactly like the dog you see in the book. He is truly happy almost all of the time, loves life, loves chasing squirrels and playing with other dogs and loves dog treats.

Rev was named Rev because he had a small white rectangle on his chest that looked like a reverend’s collar (Lori rescued Rev’s mom while she was pregnant and Rev was born right into Lori’ hands). As he grew up, the white spot gradually disappeared and he now answers to “Devil” and “Demon Child.” Just like Rev in the book, he is wonderful with puppies, often laying down to let them climb on him.

    I love that you focus on the animal aspects of your stories! They can be just as big of a part of books as the human characters!

      Lori, thank YOU for a very nice interview, and a terrific book. I know, I know, it’s maybe supposed to be “chick lit,” but I really liked it. Good writing, fun characters, and a great plot will always deliver. Congratulations!

        Bei den Stadtteilen handelt es gegenseitig teilweise um ehemals selbstständige Gemeinden, die im Laufe diverser Gebietsreformen nach Deutsche Mozartstadt (umlhngssprachgica) eingegliedert wurden, teilweise jedoch ebenfalls um neue Stadtteile, eine gute als Wohngebiete gegründet wurden.

        "Then you misunderstand the definition of a "right". You are born with every right that you or should be guaranteed. It isn't granted or gifted to you by another or by your government.Exactly the point I was making. Once again, Obama wouldn't be so able to threaten grannie's livelihood if grannie had control of the asset in her own account. Grannie has no actual "right" to the funds if some sleazy politician can just withold it for political purposes. Larry, Hydra, and Zach like to ignore this, skew it, or pretend not to understand.

        Hi Lani-Maybe an obvious question but you would think that if you maintained all the variables in your manufacturing process on a given glass number that had already proven itself compatible through these kinds of tests, it would remain compatible until something changed within that process or within the raw glass material. I guess I am wondering what would make it suddenly “fail” the compatiblity test if all else was constant in your process?Cheers- David

    I haven’t read anything by Lori. I like the premise of this, though.
