Rescued!


Here's the cover of my latest release, Rescued.


A werecougar has no time for the annoyingly persistent mate fate’s thrown under her nose, no matter how intoxicatingly desirable he smells – and looks – not when time’s running out for a bunch of missing kids.  But he’s got other plans and they include more than just working together. Complications, anyone?




Blurb:
Fiercely independent and determined to be taken seriously in a man’s world, PI Rose Baxter will do whatever it takes to find the kids who are disappearing from the streets and bring them home safe, even teaming up with PI Marty Brown, a man hot enough to burn whatever part of her gets too close – her fingers, her sheets, her life, and her other nature’s whiskers. 
But her other nature knows whiskers grow back and will accept nothing less than this man as her mate for life, a plan Marty’s all in on. Sparks fly when she refuses to be the little woman. Besides, those kids need her and their time’s running out. But, thrown together 24/7 can she fight it?
                                                              Excerpt:
The mattress moaned slightly in response to an unseen and unexpected movement. Her eyes snapped open and focused on the room, moving up, down, side-to-side. She didn’t recognize a single thing in her line of view. A rush of air flooded her lungs in a panicked gasp. She wasn’t where she should be.

In her own bed.

Alone.


Damn. Where am I and how did I end up here? Double damn.

Her last memory? The bar. Jed’s Place. She’d received a tip from her source that her suspect had slithered inside. Arriving a few minutes later, she kept an eye on him and his cohorts for a couple of hours. Posing as a customer, she shot a couple of games of eight ball with some of the regulars.

Her eyes narrowed. Her head pounded as she recalled the next events.
Nothing stood out until . . . the asshole from the pool table sidled up way too close behind her and tried to score points by offering shooting tips. She stretched up on her tiptoes to line up the winning shot. His groin pressed tight against her bottom. His hands slid down her arms to her wrists as he whispered, “Let me give you a hand there, little lady.”

Without flinching, she purred, “I’m not little, I’m nobody’s lady, and I don’t need your help.” She slammed the butt end of the cue stick into his ribs, and with the same smooth motion came back to make a perfect shot and win her third game of the night. She straightened from the table with a satisfied grin. 


Yep, Rose is a feisty one!

Good Saturday morning! I slept a little late, got some rest, made a pot of coffee, and now I'm preparing to do a final read of my next book, Dreams Do Come True so I can send it off to my publisher. But before I get into that, I had a bit of unfinished business here at the Romance Magicians blog.

I have selected the winner of a copy of my werecougar book, Rescued! I will have Amazon email you the instructions to download your copy shortly.

And the winner is...Steph F.

Congratulations!! I hope you enjoy! Please don't be shy about posting your thoughts on Amazon:)
