Chapter 4 of Code Name: WILLOW is up.

If you commented last week, be sure to check the comments section for a note about who wins the free books from last week's contest. (Little hint--all of you!). Just follow the directions in my last comment and your free book will be on the way.

This week, alas, I don't have a prize to give away, but I still love to hear your comments as you read. And if you made a comment last week, be sure to check the comments later today--I'll be addressing some of what y'all talked about.

Free Fic Friday - Chapter 3

You know the drill by now. But this week, I'm sweetening the pot with a little contest. Somewhere in Chapter 3 of Code Name: WILLOW, I reveal how long it's been since Maggie's seen her father. How long is it? The first person to post the correct answer here wins a free $20 gift certificate.

Now go read! Then come back and comment!

Update: Because I still want y'all to have reason to revisit this thread even after the $20 Gift Certificate is gone, I'll sweeten the pot a little here. I'd like for those of you reading to comment on what you've liked, what you haven't liked, what themes you see, what characters intrigue you—because I'm a feedback addict. And by the end of this weekend—10 pm central time on Sunday evening—I'm going to draw two names randomly from the commenters on this thread. The winners get signed copies of any one of my backlist books I still have available. (I think Forbidden Territory may be out of stock, even here, though, just to warn you).

So, come on, folks. Show me a little comment love!

Well, Would You Look at That...

Case File: Canyon Creek, Wyoming is up on Amazon for pre-order. Order early, order often!

Here's a blurb to whet your appetite:

On the trail of the killer who murdered his wife, Wyoming cop Riley Patterson finally has the break he's been waiting for—a survivor. But while Hannah Cooper can't remember anything about her attacker, her attacker remembers her. After a second attempt on her life, Riley offers himself as Hannah's personal bodyguard. But will his growing attraction to Hannah put his case in jeopardy, especially if his best chance to catch a killer puts her directly in the crosshairs?

I actually read the whole novel, beginning to end, last week while doing my final edit of the book before it goes to press. I'm not one who enjoys re-reading my books once I've turned them in to the editor, but I have to say, I found myself sucked right into Case File: Canyon Creek, Wyoming again. I think it's the tormented, grieving hero who pulled me into the story. It was satisfying to see him come to life again over the course of the story as he found more to live for that just revenge and his wife's memory.

I hope y'all enjoy the story as much as I did!

Free Fiction Friday - Chapter Two

Chapter Two of Code Name: WILLOW is up on my website! Go read, then come back here to talk about it.

If you missed reading Chapter One, no fear. It's still up. Each chapter stays up once it goes up so that anybody coming to the story late can easily catch up.

Free Fiction Fridays are Here!

Visit my website to read the first chapter of CODE NAME: WILLOW, a full-length romantic suspense novel I'm offering, a chapter at a time, on my website every Friday through November.

Here's a little blurb to get you started:

When a former First Daughter's in trouble, there's only one man to go to for help. Too bad Maggie Stone swore she'd never turn to Secret Service Agent Jack Bennett again...

Yeah, kinda vague. But you'll figure out pretty quickly what's going on. Just go read the chapter.

Then come back here and talk about it! And you can be honest; I'm not sensitive. I love to hear feedback, good, bad or ugly.
