What were you like in school?

Congratulations to "Patricia B.", the winner in Destiny's giveaway. Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize!

Hello Just Romantic Suspense! I’m so excited to be back here!

It’s back to school time. That means a strain on the wallet–school supplies, fees, pictures, anything needed for sports, etc. I always dread the homework drama. Then you have the constant illness, calls from the school… I promise I’m not trying to depress anyone. We’ll survive this!


In the spirit of the mother sisterhood, I want to offer a Kindle copy of my new romantic suspense, Another Five Minutes. It’s a little free adult entertainment to celebrate the kick off of the school year. To win, leave a comment below telling us what you were like in school.

I’ll start. In a word, I was unmemorable. I was that quiet girl that sat in the back of the class writing in a notebook or reading. Sometimes I was sleeping. When I think about it, maybe I haven’t changed so much. Lol. What were you like?

Another Five Minutes

Loving him is easy.
Fearing him is necessary.
Trusting him could be a deadly mistake.
Born deaf and living with an anxiety disorder, Brooke Hartley manages life in five-minute intervals. It’s all she can do to get out of bed each morning. She’s hidden inside her sister’s apartment for over a year.

Everything changes when Brooke’s sister goes missing. Her fragile world crashes. She is desperate to find her, and she’ll need help.
Haunted by a past he needs to forget, Scott Derrico keeps to himself until his gallery manager, Autumn Hartley, suddenly disappears. He is forced out of his isolation to help a woman that needs him with a terrifying intensity.
Scott tries to deny his attraction to Brooke. He doesn’t want to get emotionally involved but he craves her like nothing else. And, for her, he is a dark and sexy diversion to overcome her fear.
With a genuinely flawed and relatable heroine and a mysterious and protective hero, you won’t want this love story to end. You’ll beg…for another five minutes…

  1. Thank you so much for having me at Just Romantic Suspense! :)

  2. I was the mother hen.... not popular. I friended the kids no one liked or had problems. Should have applied myself more but I got by... lol

    1. The mother hens are the ones that should be popular! We need more of you. :)

  3. I loved reading and learning but was frequently the new kid as my dad was transferred from Georgia to California to Alabama and just as I found myself in high school, back to Georgia for my senior year. I liked being able to reinvent myself but wish I had close friends other people have maintained.

    1. That would be hard. I don't think I could have done that. It was hard for me to open up to people and make friends.

  4. I too was a quiet one. I tried to sit towards the front of the classroom, took bunches of notes (still do), and was always up late doing homework. I was a pretty good student and liked most subjects. Math and science were my favorites. Now I still enjoy science but history has moved up in favor. I had a nasty history teacher who spoiled it for me. Reading has always been a favorite.

    1. You had such a good work ethic. And yes, yes, yes to reading! It saved me as a teenager! I needed that escape.
