Betrayed by Trust final coverSmall sampling:

This is a story full of intrigue and betrayal, with characters that may or may not be trustworthy. Add to this an underlying theme of family that grounds the players in what’s truly important and this book is a winner.

Tasty Summer Reads Hop

The lovely Angela Campbell was nice enough to share her webspace with me so I could participate in the Tasty Summer Reads Hop! I answered 5 questions, and share a fantastic spaghetti sauce recipe from Betrayed by Trust.

Here’s an excerpt:
1) When writing, are you a snacker? If so, sweet or salty? 

Oh, yes, I have to snack, but I try to snack on healthy stuff. And I like to mix the sweet and salty—peanuts and raisins, or sliced apples with cheddar cheese or peanut butter. Yum! Or a bowl of cherries, grapes, whatever’s handy. If I’m writing late in the evening I like to snack on Prosecco…and dark chocolate.

2) Are you an outliner or someone who flies by the seat of their pants? Are they real pants or jammies?

Betrayed by Trust final coverHere’s an excerpt:

 When you look at the Clinton affair, JFK’s multiple affairs, and all the congressmen and senators’ affairs, have you noticed that it’s always the men getting caught with their pants down? Their wives and married female colleagues never seem to get caught, but are they really so innocent or are they just better at being sneaky?

Night Owl Romance review of SOE

SonoftheEnemyFinalCoverSon of the Enemy is a Night Owl Top Pick with 4 1/2 stars!

Here’s some of what they had to say about it:

The chemistry between John and Hannah is off the charts. Their relationship is very realistic in its portrayal. I loved how slowly the relationship built and how each of them was unsure of the other. While the sex was hot and steamy, it was not the main focus of the book.

Overall, this was a fantastic book. The mystery was interesting and all of the secondary characters helped to draw you into the story.

Through the victim’s eyes (NYUS guest post)

I have a blog post featured today on Not Your Usual Suspects!

Here’s a small excerpt:


Betrayed by Trust final cover

As authors we have to use our imaginations—goes without saying, really. As romantic suspense authors, our imaginations often take us to some pretty dark places. And we live there for as long as it takes to feel the chill down our spines or the outright terror clawing at our guts and get it down on paper. We go back there, over and over, to those black corners, cobwebbed hidey-holes and damaged psyches, smoothing the contours, adding that final layer, the slightest hint of light or deepening darkness.

Review of Wrongfully Accused

Here’s what Kathy Altman from  USA Today’s HEA blog had to say about Wrongfully Accused.


Why you should read it: Six sentences in I realized I would not be putting this book down until I’d read the final page. Not only was I held rapt by the suspense-filled scene unfolding in front of me, but I had it bad for the hero. Or I did, until theWrongfully Accused part kicked in — then of course I had to keep reading to find out how Kate is vindicated, and how Gabe gets his comeuppance. Then there was the little matter of the villain’s identity — and all I have to say about that is that this author is delightfully diabolical.
