My deepest gratitude to my editor, Hilary Sares, who really dug into this story and made me work for it. Basically, she kicked my ass. By not pulling her punches or letting me shortchange the details, she made me work harder and because of that, this story is a much, much better book.
BARED TO YOU wouldn't be what it is without you, Hilary. Thank you so much!
To Martha Trachtenberg, copy editor extraordinaire. This book is an important one for me and she treated it that way. Thank you, Martha!
To Victoria Colotta, for all her hard work on the interior design and typesetting. She took my plain text and made it gorgeous. Thank you, Victoria!
To Tera Kleinfelter, who read the first half of Bared to You and told me she loved it. Thank you, Tera!
To all girls who were at Cross Creek at some point in your adolescence: May all your dreams come true. You deserve it.
And to Alistair and Jessica, from Seven Years to Sin, who inspired me to write Gideon and Eva's story. I'm so glad the inspiration struck twice!
