To Talk Or Not To Talk, That Is The Question

My husband and I are a good match. I talk, he listens.

I’m an extrovert who loves to communicate with words. Discourse and discussion are my favorite pastimes (when I’m not reading). My husband prefers to listen and think. And think, and think. He’s great at making the interested “face”, nodding and smiling when I’ve said something interesting or funny. When he does open his mouth to say something, it’s usually a pun or sly joke that tells me he really was listening the whole time. Surprises most everyone else though.

Grey and Molly, the hero and heroine of MOLLY GETS HER MAN are very much like my husband and I. Molly talks. It’s how she makes her living and she’s so good at language she speaks at least seven. Grey however, is all action, and dislikes fast-talkers because in his experience they slow things down and nothing useful gets done.

In MOLLY GETS HER MAN Grey and Molly are forced to choose between shooting or talking first. The wrong answer might get them both killed.

When flaky Las Vegas hairdresser Molly McLaren overhears hears a Russian hit man planning to kill a US congressman and take out Hoover Dam in the process, she becomes a target for murder. Now, on the run from the assassin and a dirty cop, she winds up in an eighteen wheeler with an ex-cop sporting a bum leg, a bad attitude, and a body built for loving.

Grey Wilson just wanted to be left alone. No more Las Vegas. No more casinos. And no more floozy women like the one his best friend sent him to pick up on the side of the road. She talks fast, but her endless curves and sensuous nature make him want to slow down. Which is not in the cards. Grey knows he needs to unload his excess baggage. And quick.

But when someone tries to kill the Vegas beauty, Molly captures his heart with her backbone of steel, and brains to boot. Now in order to grasp the future that had once seemed impossible, Molly and Grey need to keep Hoover Dam, the congressman, and their love from being blown sky-high.

  1. I was already interested in this story, but that talking-versus-shooting description upped the ooh factor considerably. :) Pushing this higher on my to-read list! :)
