Round up post. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate.

I had planned to finish up my 50 Days of Giveaways before Christmas but I'm too frantic and don't want to miss giving out prizes. So we'll save the last nine until 2016!

Thanks to readers for giving me another amazing year as a Romance writer. I sometimes have to pinch myself about the fact that, not only am I doing this, but readers actually like the books. Thank you to my fellow Romantic Suspense fans for making that happen!

I looked at my goals for 2015 and, as always, they were wildly optimistic, but I'm a slow writer (*sob*) and I decided earlier in the year not to sweat the things I can't change (how fast I write seems to be one of those things). Instead I concentrated on writing the best stories I can and then getting them out to readers in as many formats as possible. Being a self-published author is a time-consuming business. Being a writer is time-consuming. Being a mom, being a wife, having a house, being an unpaid dog walker... etc. etc. But I am so grateful to be all those things and living a very, very good life. Thank you! This is why I tried to give back just a little with 50 Days!

There are a few things I want to mention for those who don't follow me on Facebook or receive my newsletter. 

First, for those readers who've been demanding more of Alex Parker and Mallory Rooney... (from my newsletter)

COLD IN THE SHADOWS is now available. 
"A perfect Christmas present for any woman who loves to read." Amazon Review

Book five of the Cold Justice Series finds Patrick Killion on the trail of the assassin who murdered the Vice President of the United States.

The CIA officer and the frog biologist. Someone just met his match.


BLURB

CIA officer Patrick Killion is on a secret mission to hunt down the ruthless female assassin hired to kill the Vice President of the United States. The trail leads him to the Colombian rainforest and an earnest biologist, Audrey Lockhart, whose work on poison dart frogs gives her access to one of the deadliest substances on earth—the same substance used to murder the VP.

When Audrey is attacked by the local drug cartel, Killion steps in and hustles her out of harm’s way, determined to find out what she knows. His interrogation skills falter somewhere between saving her life and nursing her back to health as he realizes she’s innocent, and he ends up falling for her. Audrey has a hard time overlooking the fact that Killion kidnapped her, but if she wants to get her life back and track down the bad guys, she has to trust him. Then someone changes the rules of their cat and mouse game and now they’re the ones being hunted—by a cold-blooded killer who is much closer than they think.

50 Days of Giveaways: 40/50

Today I'm giving away my last copy of the audiobook of DARK WATERS on Compact Disc. 



Danger once again laps at the shores of Barkley Sound, the Graveyard of the Pacific.…
It may be summer, but schoolteacher Anna Silver’s trip to the coastal town of Bamfield is anything but a vacation. She’s on the run, desperate to stay one step ahead of her father’s murderer and determined to track down the one man she’s been told to trust: her father’s old cell mate, Brent Carver. But when she finds him, she discovers not a kind, elderly artist but a dangerously hot alpha male with blood on his hands. 
Loyal to the core, Brent would never turn away his friend’s daughter when she comes seeking help. He can’t deny Anna his protection…just as he can’t deny the instantaneous attraction he struggles to keep in check. But as their passion blazes out of control, a sadistic killer is on the hunt to stop Anna from uncovering his dark secrets.

50 Days of Giveaways: 37/50

Today I'm giving away another digital copy of my award-winning Romantic Suspense COLD PURSUIT from iBooks. 


COLD JUSTICE BOOK #2
2015 Winner of National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award ~ for Romantic Suspense.
Finalist in the National Readers' Choice Award, and the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence

Single mom Vivi Vincent is thrust into her worst nightmare when she’s trapped inside a mall during a terror attack along with her eight-year-old son. With the help of Jed Brennan, an FBI special agent on enforced leave, Vivi and her son survive the assault. But the danger is far from over.
 
Vivi’s son may have witnessed critical details of the terrorists’ future plans and is targeted for death, but he’s mute, and he’s traumatized. Still someone launches a strike against the FBI’s safe house, and Jed fears the bad guys have an inside man. No longer knowing who to trust, he hides mother and son in a log cabin deep in the heart of the Wisconsin Northwoods. There Jed and Vivi try to figure out how to unlock the information inside her son’s head. What they don’t bargain for is the red-hot attraction that flares between them, or the extent of the sinister plot that threatens to rip apart not only any chance of happiness they might have together, but also the very fabric of American society.
