Woot! Woot! EXCHANGE OF FIRE is a finalist in the Romantic Suspense category for New Jersey Romance Writer’s Golden Leaf contest!!

When I attend the conference in October, I’ll now be an excited, nervous wreck!! Everyone please join me in rooting on Wraith (AKA Sandra) and Grady to win!!!!

Here’s the back cover blurb if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet:
Faking her death was easy, living with her past is harder, but nothing is more dangerous than falling in love…

Sandra Walsh was a deadly sniper for the Sweet Briar Group, a covert agency with assassins for hire, until her last mission went horribly wrong, accidentally killing an innocent girl. Knowing she’s a danger to her team, Sandra goes off the grid, becoming a Shade—an agent declared dead but secretly hiding among the living. She intends to honor her vow never to pull another trigger or have contact with the spy world again. Until she meets Casper Grady…

Grady is a former Marine with a troubled past and a debt to pay. His life mission has gone from protecting the nation to helping local children and their families. The moment he meets Sandra, he knows there’s more to her than meets the eye, but he can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious femme fatale. And when Sandra’s past suddenly catches up to her, Grady is determined to protect her at all costs, no matter how dark and dangerous her secrets are.

As the danger increases, so does their intense attraction. But when they’re forced to choose between each other and the people they’ve sworn to protect, their growing love might not be enough to keep them together—or alive…

Synopsis:

The new SBG novel from the author of Exchange of Fire—“if you enjoy military action, suspense, steamy romance, and a little danger, this is the series for you” (Library Journal).
When her secretly filmed tryst shows up on the internet, Michelle Alger goes on the run. She has no choice. Not only was her one-night stand the son of a US senator, but he’s been murdered—and she’s the number one suspect. With both the senator and an avenging drug lord on her trail, her life is in danger. There’s only man she can trust. He saved her once, but will he still be her hero six years later?
Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery. Six years ago his team of Green Berets rescued her from the torturous clutches of a Columbian cartel, and he’s never forgotten her. His personal and covert mission: find Michelle before anyone else. When he and Michelle do meet again, the sparks are explosive and consuming. They’re also dangerous as hell.
Because with each new bit of evidence, Jeremy suspects that Michelle’s innocence may be a ruse—a beautiful trap set by a woman who has even more secrets yet to bare.

Pinterest-icon I realize Pinterest may seem to be old news to some of you but to me it’s like a shiny new toy!

Now I have another avenue to post the pictures and/or videos I have stuffed in my virtual folders as I’m writing a book.

Hooray!

I know I can’t post every photo/video in my folders (in some instances the board would be a mile long) so I’ll have to learn restraint but I will endeavor to show you what I’m describing in the books.

To get started, I’ve created a “board” for Exchange of Fire, SBG #1 and started a “board” for Shadow of Doubt, SBG #2.
