I'm so excited. ;D My new romantic suspense, In The Presence Of Evil, is now available. Don't you just love that cover? I love that cover.
I'm having a release day party at my blog Please pop over and enter the contest. I'm giving away a few e-copies of In The Presence Of Evil. You can enter until June 21, 2011 Noon EST.

If you love to read romantic suspense, I promise you will love this story.

Here's a blurp. And for more info, visit my website

Senior loan officer GINA RIZZO becomes a pawn between two predators rivaling for the head of a Russian mafia family. One wants her alive. The other wants her gone.

When Gina Rizzo is framed for the murder of her boss by a Russian mafia hit-man, her only hope to stay out of jail is to accept the help of the man who broke her heart years ago.

Staring death down is easier for Marine Cole Hanson than facing the woman who stole his soul and then betrayed him. However, when Cole sees Gina in handcuffs, old feelings flare and even though he doesn't trust her with his heart, he willingly steps up as her alibi.

Gina's life is threatened and staying alive while hunting down a murder becomes their objective. Can they learn to trust each other again? And if they do, will their rekindled love be their demise?

Welcome to KindleBoards, Autumn, and congratulations on your book!

Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. As such, self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

Kindle did it. They add In The Presence Of Evil to Kindle books. Check it out.

Here's an excerpt. I hope you enjoy. ;D

"I always wondered what your bedroom looked like," Cole said.
Gina's breasts tightened under the thin fabric of the scrubs. As much as she didn't want to be affected by him, she couldn't help her reaction. Her cheeks warmed under his hooded gaze. They were years older. Well beyond the legal age of consent, but she was not going to go there again. He left her once, and he would again.
"Well, now you know." Gina pushed away from the sink, making Cole back up. Her fists curled but not because she was angry. She was so tempted to touch him in ways he wouldn't soon forget. Quickly, she slipped by him.
"Yup. Now, I know," Cole said after her.
Gina stalked through her bedroom and out into the hall.
Cole nearly dropped to his knees watching the sway of her hips under her scrubs. He shouldn't be thinking about helping her out of them, but damn it, he was a man, and his Gina had grown into one beautiful woman.
He rushed after her and caught her hand at the top of the stairs. "Wait."
She sighed loudly as she turned. "What now? You've checked the entire house. There is no one here except the two of us."
"You're exhausted."
"You're sharp."
Cole frowned. He deserved that. Maybe he was wrong. Maybe there was no one after Gina. He'd just searched her house and gave her heart failure several times. He wanted to make it up to her.
She darted her eyes briefly to the floor before meeting his gaze. "I'm sorry."
"Forget it. I deserved it."
She didn't pull her hand away. He brushed the soft skin under his fingers.
"No. You don't." Gina shook her head. Her hair shimmered under the overhead light. "You're only trying to help me. You did help tonight. Why, Cole? Why did you lie to Chief Dean? You weren't there. You don't know if I killed David or not?"
"You're right. I don't know."
Her eyes widened into oval pools of amber honey. She yanked her hand from his and paced the length of the small landing. "Why are you here?"
"Because I have a feeling whoever killed David might want to harm you. I just want to make sure you're safe."
"Why? You don't owe me anything."
"Because protecting is what I do. And the local cops aren't going to do it. If anything, I think they're looking at you for the murder."
She sunk onto the hard backed chair at the end of the hallway and sulked forward, holding her head in her hands. Her long hair fell forward and covered her knees. She looked smaller in the almost fetal position. Helpless.
Cole wanted to gather her in his arms, but he wasn't sure she'd allow it.
He walked over and nudged her arm. "What you need right now is a hot bath and something to eat."
"I'm really not hungry."
"Well, I am." He grabbed her arms and pulled her from the chair. His strong man approach slipped away at the sight of the tears glistening on her cheeks. Cole fought the urge to pull her closer. The reason would be to comfort her, let her know she was safe, but feeling her soft body against his could be downright dangerous.
His hands moved down her arms to her hands. Small and soft, he squeezed them gently. "You take a bath, and I'll go downstairs and brew a pot of coffee and make us something to eat."
"I don't want anything."
"Go. No arguing." He twirled her on her heel and sent her off in the direction of her bedroom.
She stopped at the door. Her long fingers held the frame. "Cole."
"Don't worry. I'm not going anywhere."
"I'm not. I just wanted to say thank you." Her smile was faint, but as small as it was, her smile had brought a warmth to his heart he hadn't felt in a longtime.
"No problem, Gina."
She shut the door behind her.
Cole heard the lock click. She hadn't secured the door because of him. Gina was scared.
While he was here, she had no reason to be.
