Thank you so much, Maureen, for having us back.Happy New Year, everyone!
We're excited to introduce Trusting
Danger, the latest in our series of standalone romantic suspense novels.

obvious to the authors until after a book is finished. One theme we didn't
anticipate as we were initially plotting out the
story was perceptions. Claire's background and her father's status as a senator

before we know them? Some food for thought in this new year.
January 4th is
the release day of our second book, Trusting Danger, Book Two in the Danger Series. For a limited time, Trusting Dangeris available for only $0.99. The first book in the series, Meeting Danger, a Kindle Scout winner, is available for $0.99 until
January 11, 2018.
