New Book Contract

UPDATE: Title is now Protecting Her Own
While I've been mulling over my thoughts about the mythic journey the characters of Pride and Prejudice (see previous posts) take, I received a contract for my first contemporary romance. Except I've learned it will be classified as a romantic suspense story.

Next April, check out STONE HOUSE FARM at Champagne Books! My first impression has been what a great company. The story is set in Manistee, Michigan. Hopefully the first of several Michigan romances.

Here's a teaser:

Wade’s eyelids flickered, but he didn’t respond.

Amanda continued shouting at him, unable to stop even though she doubted he heard. She pulled his body on the sled. His eyelids fluttered again, then his eyes opened.

He raised his head and his gaze locked on her. “You!” His soft, hoarse outcry cost him, his head fell back in a helpless fashion and his eyes closed to mere slits. He gasped as she pushed him further on the sled, his face grimacing, his eyelids scrunched shut.

“Why not me? You’re trespassing on my property.”

Wade’s words came thick and slow. “That why you shot me?”

Of course, an important part of the story is a stone farmhouse. Already in edits! Can't wait to see the cover!
