Romantic Suspense and Thriller

Dark Deeds By Anne Marie Becker

Blog Diva - Friday, March 21, 2014

Thank you for having me at the RomCon blog to celebrate the release of my latest romantic suspense novel Dark Deeds (Mindhunters, Book 4).

When I created The Society for the Study of the Aberrant Mind (or SSAM)—a private agency that hunts serial killers and other repeat violent offenders whose trails have gone cold—I wanted to explore the themes of hope healing grief, trust as the core of lasting bonds, and love conquering fear.

Dark Deeds was extra-special, as its heroine is Becca, a character who has become near and dear to me (and my readers) over the course of the series. I’ve watched her grow from a new SSAM recruit into a strong team member and I was excited to help her find love, especially with the passionate NYPD Detective Diego Sandoval. He’s her match in every way. Read More

Interview with Sergeant, Ginger McCormick:

Hi. My name is Ginger. If you have a little time, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. Okay, so I’ve already said my name is Ginger, but my close friends and cop buddies call me Storm. My ex-partner, Homicide Detective, Skitch, gave me the nickname Storm after I caught a ruthless killer during a hellified rainstorm in Miami, FL. That was one of the happiest days of my life. But…

Right after I captured Nancy Kingston’s murderer, my ex-boyfriend did something horrible that landed me on probation. Sigh. Sigh. And just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, my best friend husband got murdered, and my new man is the number one suspect. Sweet Jesus! This is so much to handle until I can hardly tell the story.  Read More

Blackness Takes Over By Norma Jeanne Karlsson

Blog Diva - Friday, February 28, 2014

When Dylan Kellerman enters Shannon’s life he changes its course in more ways than one. He gives her hope and promise of a future she was convinced wasn’t attainable. Just as she begins to believe she has finally turned her life into something she can build a future on…blackness takes over.

Blackness Takes Over centers on relationships as a whole, not just romantic involvement. How those relationships grow and develop lead to the love and desire found in Shannon and Dylan’s relationship. Here’s an excerpt where Shannon goes to her first college party at the home of three (soon to be) friends.

As I make my way gradually through the crowd I grip my clutch (hiding my gun) tightly to my side. My gun is my safety net…always has been. My Uncle Mick taught me to shoot when I was eight. That’s how he got me to talk after I went to live with him. It had been a month and I hadn’t said a word, so he took me out onto his land, maybe a few acres out and put a rifle in my hand. Told me to point and shoot at some targets off in the distance. I did. I hit the target on my first try.

I looked up at him smiling for the first time since my life stopped and asked, “Can I do it again?” That’s when my new life began. Read More

Delta On My Mind by DeeAnna Galbraith

Blog Diva - Friday, February 14, 2014

You’ve known him as a friend all your life. That’s about to change.

Ever known a nice guy next door? A guy you’ve always been comfortable with? Had your back? Maybe you went to high school together and he was a little older so you hung out in different circles. He went to college two time zones away and you did the whole white gown and flowers thing with your college sweetheart.

Fast forward a dozen years. Your sweetheart wasn’t such a nice guy. In fact he was a rat in in golf clothes who enjoyed making you miserable. So you walked out and started over.

Your nice guy is back; to stay. Things just got a whole lot more interesting.

Deathblow By Dana Marton

Heaven Save Me from Men who Think They’re God’s Gift to Women

I’ve known a guy like that when I worked as a trainer in a gym in my twenties. Boy, was he pretty to look at: big smile, white teeth, six-pack abs, charisma. Women lined up to swoon after him. They were so excited when they received his phone number, or were asked out for drinks. They had no idea that he was like that with everyone—or that he was already living with someone.

All writers use their own life experiences in their books. When Joe Kessler, small-town football hero turned hot stuff police officer, strutted onto the scene in my bestselling novel Deathscape, I was sure he was just like that guy at my old gym. In fact, here is a gym scene with Joe at the police station. Jack, the hero of Deathscape, is sitting on the mat, having just ended an unpleasant phone call:

Jack hung up on the man as Joe, one of two rookies, pushed through the door and dropped his gym bag on the floor, heading straight for the treadmill with a grin. “Fallen and you can’t get it up?” Read More

Craving Vengeance Excerpt

Chapter 1


Spinelli’s eyes popped open. He stared into the face of an angel. Was he still sleeping? How was it he had lured this beautiful creature into his life just a little over two months ago? He resisted the urge to run his fingers over her soft, milky white skin. She looked so peaceful when she slept. He would never be bored watching her sleep. Her slow even breaths mesmerized him. Was he dreaming? He almost went so far as to pinch his arm.

Shannon stirred and flipped over. Her shiny red hair spread out over her pillow like wildfire. He didn’t need the nearby streetlight peeking through the window blinds to notice her fiery hair, but it certainly helped to illuminate its zest. Spinelli reached over and skimmed his hand over her soft hair. Silky strands sifted through his fingers sending an electrical current rippling throughout his body. He debated waking her, taking her again. He nearly chuckled at the thought. When they’d first met, they couldn’t stand to be with one another, now they couldn’t stand to be apart. Cupid’s arrow struck him, hard and fast, out of nowhere. He was done, toast. Read More

Deep In My Heart By Patricia Fischer

Blog Diva - Thursday, January 16, 2014

As a writer, one of my favorite things to create is a couple with history.

Take Dr. Jocelyn Promise and Air Force Veteran Caleb Davis, my heroine and hero from my newest release Deep in My Heart.

They weren’t high school sweethearts, honestly they were far from it. He was the sheriff’s son and all around big man on campus. She, the academic and daughter of a felon. All she wanted was to simply survive without being smothered in the social chaos that was high school, but an incident in high school sent her and her mother packing for California and Jocelyn had no intention of ever returning.

Now fifteen years later, she’d ended up back in their hometown of Tuscany, Texas with a veterinarian degree and a solid head on her shoulders.

He, retired from the military and a single father to four children.

Both are trying to recover from wounds of the past, but the funny thing about past events. The more you try and out run them, the more they seems to stay right beside you. Read More
