Congratulations to "Shellbelle", the winner of Kim's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated.
Hi everyone! I'm thrilled to be here today!
I love writing and reading romantic suspense because not only does the suspense provide instant tension in a story, I love the push-pull-tug-of-war of romance. Will the hero and heroine get together? Will they overcome the conflict and live happily ever after?
In my book REFLECTION, my heroine, reporter, Whitney Steel is investigating an alleged human cloning project when she meets up with the hero, FBI Agent, Blake Neely, who's searching for his own answers. Everything from this point on focuses on Blake and Whitney discovering whether or not the villain has produced the world's first cloned human. They don't set out to fall in love. The relationship between the hero and heroine evolves because of the suspense.
So what is the perfect blend of romance and suspense? In my opinion--a kick-ass heroine and a hot guy, sizzling romance, murder, and lots and lots of mayhem!
I'm thrilled to announce my debut romantic suspense, REFLECTION was released January 25, 2013 by MuseItUp Publishing!
Florida investigative reporter, Whitney Steel, has lived in the shadow of her legendary father long enough. To prove herself she needs to find the “Big” story.
She found it.
Now it may kill her.
After Whitney receives a lead pointing to the world's first cloned human, now a small child, she vows to unravel the truth. However, sifting through the facts proves to have dangerous results, including death threats and murder.
When Whitney is nearly killed, but is saved by undercover FBI Special Agent, Blake Neely, he refuses to let her get in the way of his own objective—at least not right away.
Caught in a lethal game between a billionaire obsessed with genetic perfection, his hit man’s thirst for retribution, and a Colombian drug lord fresh out of prison determined to make Blake pay for his twin brother’s death over a decade ago...
Can they save an innocent child before it’s too late?
Faced with tough choices, with deadly consequences for many—Whitney soon realizes that sometimes a story becomes more than just a story.
Whitney rummaged through her leather bag, placed her digital voice recorder on the
table and gave the record button a firm push. “For the record, Senator Bailey, did
you kill Carmen Lacey?”
“No.” He leaned back in the chair and loosened his pinstriped tie. “It’s true. I
was the last person to see her alive. But there’s more to this than you think.”
Brown eyes that once set her heart hammering now conveyed a chilling,
hollow look. Was it guilt? Desperation?
Uneasiness slid down her spine. She stopped the recorder. “Mason, you’re
scaring me. What the hell is going on? It’s been over three years since we last
spoke. Then, out of the blue, you beg me to meet with you today. I know the police
don’t believe you killed that woman.”
“But do you, Whitney? Do you believe I killed her? I need to know. It’s
Stunned by the urgency in his voice, she answered carefully. “Of course not.
You’re many things, but you’re not a killer.”
“Thank you. That means a lot to me.” He reached for his empty glass and
tapped his chunky gold ring against the side.
Whitney turned the recorder on again.
“Carmen was a scientist working for a biotech company in Nevada.
ShawBioGen. Heard of it?”
“Who hasn’t? They were one of the first to clone animals in the eighties.
Caused quite a stir. But I don't understand. What does that have to do with
