~Tracy L Cotton (@TracyLCotton):
I woke up to numbing cold, but no covers in reach. No mattress, no pillow, just total darkness and the smell of dirt surrounding me.

~Melissa Clifton (@Ayemekins):
You stir awake bound to an altar in an abandoned cathedral. Entranced and bound you can’t escape. They won’t let you

~Cupcakes and Books (@CupcakesBooks):
The feel of the silk scarf was a smooth slide around her neck,thrilling as he pulled her close for the kiss,the last she will know

~Timitra Cozier-Bobb (@taccb):
It slid up slowly, gently grazing her neck, rasping over her senses and creating pleasurable sensations until it became a noose.

~Jireh Kayl Pajela (@whodunitAlley):
Swiftly has the years gone by. The roses you gave me has withered and so am I. My name instead of yours, now inscribed on the marble.

Each finalists receives a box of romance genre books! Woot! Woot!

EXCHANGE OF FIRE Is A Finalist in NJRW’s Golden Leaf

EXCHANGE OF FIRE Is A Finalist in NJRW’s Golden Leaf

GLBadgeFinalist_20159780698180949-ExchangeofFi_CV-635x1024

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…
