Review:

I found the description of a romantic suspense novel to be just right.  This was an entertaining read.  Jordan has no idea who could want her dead and considering her line of work it is very difficult to even guess who it may be.  Chase falls for Jordan quickly yet has a history to keep him in line, not to mention his friend told him she was off limits.  The attraction and danger builds through the story.  I found this to be an easy read that didn’t require me to think too hard.  Just sit back and enjoy.

Description:

While working as a forensic psychologist, Jordan Clayton has made enemies. Providing expert testimony in court put her in that position. Except, now, someone wants her dead, and the bigger problem is she has no idea who. Fortunately, her colleagues have a solution. Unfortunately, it involves hiring a bodyguard to protect her until the perpetrator is caught. But he is nothing like she expected. Though she feels physically safer in his presence, emotionally, she feels more at risk than ever before.

Chase Armstrong has worked as a protection specialist since he left law enforcement. He makes it a point to not ever mix business with pleasure. In his line of work, the two can be a deadly combination. It’s a rule he never breaks—never even bends. Except, now, his latest assignment is challenging his resolve. Rather than the subtle change in routine he was seeking, protecting her is something else entirely. She has him not only exercising every bit of self-control he possesses, but reconsidering his entire perspective on life as well.

A debut novel of intriguing psychological suspense, forbidden attraction and perseverance.

Excerpt:

As she attempted to spin around, a strong, slick arm wrapped itself around her neck, and another one locked across her waist. Adrenaline spiked her blood. She twisted back and forth trying to break away. The arm clutching her torso remained solidly in place. Who was he?

    • Hi Peggy,

      Thank you for the question. The most challenging part is finding the time. Writing is a passion, so I find myself scribbling out ideas and plots at odd times, but I have a day job and two little ones and there are only so many hours in a day to be managed. : )

      The most fulfilling part is feeling like I’ve put onto paper a little piece of myself…the characters, the conflicts and their relationships evolve from numerous drafts and rewrites but when it’s finally complete, it is a wondrous experience.

    • Hi Danielle,

      Good question. I sometimes wish I could listen to tunes, but when I’m immersed into the character’s world, I’ve found I’m most productive when it’s quiet. On the other hand, when I working out plot points or contemplating a scene (usually while I’m driving or walking), I find music to be very motivating…in those moments, I listen to a very eclectic mix of pop, rock, country and alternative. : )

    • Hi Becky,

      When I’m not writing, I really enjoy being outdoors (walking, hiking, etc) and working on crafty projects around the house. I recently sanded and repainted my front door. For some reason, I find these types of activities therapeutic. Reading and writing have always been my favorite pastimes and most of my free time is spent hanging out with my kids, so this was one I had to really think about. : ) Thanks for the question!
