My favorite stories to write are filled with hot, steamy sex. And something else.
That “something else” can be an alien world, alternate universe, time-traveling characters, paranormal beings or…terror. I love giving my characters something truly threatening to deal with and when I can make the villain or villainess someone seemingly innocent, all the better.
Being married to a Miami cop made me familiar with the underbelly of humanity as well as how criminals were caught. Over the years I heard a lot of “war stories” from the officers and have often drawn on some of their shared experiences to create my suspense plots and characters.
Thus I am thrilled to announce, that after extensive revising and updating, two more of my backlist romantic suspense novels are now available in e-book. But first…
PRETTY MAIDS IN A ROW has just been made a FREE READ at iBooks –
Two decades later, they are still meeting. Only now, revenge is the only item on the agenda. To see their abusers pay for what they did, Holly must feed information to a reporter without implicating the group, and David Wells is the best man for the job.
David smells a prize-winning story and Holly Kaufman looks like his best bet for unearthing the truth. Although seduction is his preferred tool for getting information from a woman, he’s unprepared for being the one seduced.
When the former frat boys start turning up dead and minus a certain organ, Holly wants out. Unfortunately she’s a prime suspect and her only hope of being proven innocent lies with the man who is reawakening her passion and cannot be trusted.
And now, about those other two…
While Teri Carmichael is being hailed as one of New York’s most promising new artists, her marriage to a compulsive gambler is wrecking her life. When he refuses to give her a divorce, she thinks her life can’t get more complicated…until the police find his brutally murdered corpse in an empty apartment.
Drew Marshall has come to New York to start over from a disastrous downward spiral, but nothing has given him as much hope as meeting Teri. Despite the worst possible timing, they are unable to resist the powerful chemistry drawing them together.
They might even be headed straight for a happy ending except for the web of evil being spun around them. An embittered detective is convinced Teri killed her husband, and Selena, a young woman who loves Teri like a mother, would kill to protect Teri from harm…in fact, she already has.
As Ellery Winters watches her mother’s casket being lowered into the ground, a stranger tells her murder may have been the true cause of death and that the vice presidential hopeful, Abraham Lincoln Jones, could have been involved. In order to uncover the truth, Ellery agrees to go under cover as Jones’ assistant.
Two decades ago, Luke Madigan witnessed a whore gruesomely mutilating her client and has had nightmares of the event ever since. For several years the psychotic hooker, known as “The Eye Doctor”, left a trail of victims, but not enough clues to find her. When she strikes again, Luke determines to put an end to his nightmares, even if it means walking right into the Doctor’s waiting room.
Though they don’t yet realize it, Ellery and Luke have a common goal. Their coming together is fueled by lies and distrust, but seduction and lust ignite a passion that will not be denied despite the deadly danger closing in on them.
As part of the marketing push for these books, the cover has been changed on the other romantic suspense novel put up a few months ago, so I want to share that with you too: Continue reading
