I’m finishing up a book that will come out in late December 2016. It’s romantic suspense, but a much different kind of romantic suspense from what I usually write. No undercover operatives. No international locations. It’s lighter on the actual suspense (fewer explosions and all that). This hero is a lurks-in-the-shadows type. Very powerful and mysterious. He kind of freaks the heroine out when they first meet. Here’s a taste:
She didn’t hear footsteps or see a shadow until the legs of the chair on the other side of the café table screeched against the tile floor and a man sat down across from her. Strike that, not just a man. Not part of the usual stripped tie, navy suit business crowd she waded through each day. This one had a lethal look to him. Dark hair with an even darker sense of danger wrapping around him.
He didn’t smile or frown while his gaze searched her face. Broad shoulders filled out every inch of the jacket of his expensive black suit. Those bright blue eyes matched his tie and provided a shock of color to the whole Tall, Dark and Deadly look he had going on.
He managed to telegraph power without saying a word as a hum of energy pulsed around off him. She fought off a shiver and reached for her spoon. Hardly a weapon but something about this guy made her insides bounce and the blood leave her head, and she had no idea why.
