Here’s an excerpt for my December 23, 2017 romantic suspense release:
Excerpt:He wanted to help, and he probably could—if shecould trust him…Olivia picked her chair up and sat. Sipping hercoffee, she watched him a few seconds. “Okay then.Talk,” she finally said.“I was military intelligence for a number of years, soif it’s something where you need help in that direction,I’m your man. If you need someone with weapons skills,I’m your guy there, too.”“Why would you think I need that type of help?”“Since you got so offended when I made thecomment about your mother’s illness, my training tellsme there’s something else going on here than a mere fearby a daughter of being held back by her mother’s issues.Why don’t you tell me what is going on and let me see ifthere’s any way for me to assist you.”“Answer one question first.”“What’s that?”“Why? Why are you so gung-ho to help me? We’venever really hit it off and, all of a sudden, you’re beingkind and want to act like the Boy Scout who helps the oldlady across the street.”The phone started ringing again. They let it play out.Rocky picked up where they left off. “I want to help youbecause I’m a nice guy, no matter what you might think,and I see you need it. There’s a mob outside your doorwho would eat you alive if given half a chance. Youcould call Sharon to assist you but I’m quite sure my
skill-set is a bit better at handling those people out therethan hers.”“You’re probably right, but can you blame me fordoubting your motives?”He shook his head. This was getting ridiculous.“You’re right. I’m done. Have a nice life.” Rocky rosefrom his seat, shoved the chair under the table, and turnedtoward the back door.In the moment his hand touched the knob, she said,“Okay. Okay. Sorry. I do need help. Please come and sit.I’ll tell you everything.”

To whet your appetite, here’s the first page:
Water ran over the top of Declan Cavanaugh’s shoes as he dashed across St. Mark’s Square in front of the Basilica. Two o’clock in the afternoon meant high tide this time of year in Venice. It wasn’t an ideal time to be chasing the flunky of a vampire through the streets to try to find the demon’s lair, but what was a man to do?
It was blind luck to stumble upon the short, gnomish creature in that Murano glass shop. Declan went in initially to purchase a new pen, but as soon as he laid eyes on the man he knew could lead him to his prey, all thoughts of a blue glass writing implement fled his mind. Making a lunge for the other man wasn’t the best plan, but Declan had been so stunned to see him, he hadn’t taken time to think through what he should do. He’d acted on instinct instead.
Declan regretted the loss of a portion of the shopkeeper’s inventory, but it couldn’t be helped. As soon as the smaller man noticed Declan, the wretched devil tossed a number of items at his pursuer to try to slow Declan’s progress. A few paperweights found their target. Declan’s head throbbed, but he kept moving. A bit of blood trickled down the side of his face. With each step, the pain in his cranium intensified. Thud, thud, thud.
When the flunky shoved the door open and ran into the street, Declan followed. Promising himself to return to the shop later to make things right with the owner, Declan kept up his pursuit.
At the rate the two men were running, staying on the boards the city’s fathers had devised to try to keep the citizens dry proved to be impossible.
Each time his foot slipped off the boards, splashes of water hit the hem of Declan’s pants and covered his brogans. Great, another pair of ruined shoes. A fleeting thought of gratitude for leaving the Italian suede shoes in his hotel room dashed across his brain. They were costly and the ones he wore would be easily replaced. A bright spot in the day for sure.
The gnome kept going. Declan wondered where the little man got his energy. For sure the shorter chap could move fast. Declan gasped for breath, but he couldn’t afford to slow down. He needed to find and capture Ambrose Schumacher.

Unbeknownst to her, Cali is the subject of an important prophecy. Her former pals have discovered this and have an even more sinister motive in forcing her to cooperate in their work than Cali can imagine.
