The Pit and the Passion

She held her gaze steady, mainly so she could delve deep, deep into those chocolate eyes. Together with his sharp, angular nose and intense, almost predatory, expression, he reminded her of a peregrine falcon on the hunt.

Wow! For the Love of a Spy--January release--Gets a Cover

Check out the cool cover for my upcoming release from I Heart Publishing:

For the Love of a Spy: The Scrivener and the Handyman.

In an era electric with possibility and peril Maris Graystone, political writer, and Michael Kinder, CIA troubleshooter, meet under oddly conventional circumstances. Despite the instantaneous sparks, they both sense there is more to their relationship than physical attraction.

Their love affair intensifies against the backdrop of the dramatic world events of 1991—a disintegrating USSR, Middle East peace talks, and Vietnam’s reemergence on the world stage. Michael appears and disappears at unpredictable moments, leaving Maris limp and lovelorn…and confused.

Looking for safe harbor for both her emotions and her body, she welcomes the advances of a dashing French diplomat, Émile de Canalon, who whisks her off to France.

Will she embrace the affection and comfort of life with Émile, or a life of constant worry and romance with Michael? It will take more than one setback for her to truly know what her heart wants.

Look for it!
