I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be doing two books in 2014 for the new suspense line over at Harper Collins/William Morrow.
My first book is titled CONFESSION and releases March 4, 2014. You can pre-order Confession here.
He’s a serial killer with one little problem: He’s afraid of blood…
A psychopathic killer known as The Saint is on the loose in Santa Fe. When his compulsively-ordered world is turned upside down, he develops a crippling fear of blood. Unable to continue carrying out his fiendish kills, he finds himself in need of a shrink. Suddenly the woman he’s been stalking is more use to him alive than dead.
She’s a green-as-grass psychiatrist and what she doesn’t know could kill her …
Faith Clancy, a Yale-educated psychiatrist, is new in town and alone in the world. When her soft-spoken patient, terrified of the very blood coursing through his veins, begs her for help, she’s determined to do anything she can to cure the poor man. But what she doesn’t know is that the closer she comes to succeeding, the closer she comes to death, because the blood he craves most is hers. She’s going to need all her wits and the help of a powerful adversary, Luke Jericho, to solve the puzzle. Will Luke prove to be a safe harbor or a dangerous enemy, and can Faith unravel the truth in time to stop The Saint?
Okay, hopefully that’s enough to intrigue you. More later!
One killer is in her blood. The other is in her house.
There’s a killer lurking in Dr. Skylar Novak’s family tree: the gene for breast cancer. That’s why her brilliant brother invented the Bella vaccine. But even if the miracle drug protects her from the cancer that took her mother’s life, it can’t save Sky from the flesh and bone evil stalking her in secret.
When the killer strikes, detective Daniel Benson finds himself in the wrong place at the right time. The bold detective manages to save Sky’s life…just in time for her to return the favor. Survival leads to seduction, and Danny risks everything—his career, even his life, to keep Sky safe. But will the buried sins they uncover cost him her heart?
Danny’s strong arms may hold her close, but only Sky can stop the terror that’s coming next…
Contents include: One heart-melting hero—good luck getting this delicious detective out of your head. One reluctant heroine—wielding a Glock was never on her to-do list. One crazed villain—an entire flock of baa baa black sheep won’t be enough to put you to sleep. And a lifesaving vaccine with one deadly side effect—murder.
