The last few years have seen massive changes in the publishing world, and savvy readers know that more and more talented authors are to be found into the digital realm of e-books. My featured author today typifies this development: she’s award-winning author Marie-Nicole Ryan, and she writes very sexy romantic suspense. Whether Marie-Nicole is writing about the most contemporary of heroes and heroines or a cowboys from the Old West, you’ll be sure to get a great romance, with highly-charged love scenes and some danger to kick things up.
Marie-Nicole has finaled in numerous contests and won some too, including an EPPIE Award for her Samhain release, Too Good to be True.
Wow! Now that’s what I call a sexy cover! Like Marie-Nicole’s other books, Too Good to be True got great reviews, including this 5 hearts review from The Romance Studio:
“This was a gripping tale filled with edgy twists and turns…Rilla and Mac smolder when they’re near each other…erotic scenes are very well written and very intense…recommend this to anyone looking for a great story to really get lost in.”
Sounds good to me! You can check out all the details on Too Good to be True on Marie-Nicole’s website, which includes excerpts, book trailers, and info on all her books.
Like many authors these days (including moi), Marie-Nicole has also branched out into the world of indie publishing. She has a new book out, and it looks great.
Broken Promises features a sexy FBI Agent and a Mafia princess–talk about your high concept. I love it! Here’s the blurb:
An FBI agent and a Mafia princess in love–career suicide.
FBI Special Agent Alex MacGregor has a bad habit of making and breaking promises. Over the years this habit has brought him heartbreak…and broken some hearts as well. But now his older sister has disappeared. Vowing to find her, he takes leave from the Chicago FBI field office’s Violent Crimes Task Force and heads to upstate New York. This is one promise he’ll keep. Even if it means facing Bette Smithson again, the beauty he rescued six months earlier and left behind with a kiss and a broken promise.
Broken Promises has all Marie-Nicole’s trademark elements, including lots of suspense and a steamy love story. If you like your romantic suspense on the hot side, I think you’ll love Marie-Nicole’s books.
For my reader’s today, Marie-Nicole is giving away a digital copy of Broken Promises. Let’s talk about TV shows, shall we? What’s your favorite suspense or cop show? Right now, I’m really enjoying Person of Interest. Tell me what your fave show is to be eligible to win a copy of Broken Promises.

Just dropping by for a quick “Good morning” and to thank Vanessa for sharing her blog with me today and allowing me the opportunity to get the word out about BROKEN PROMISES.
NCIS, and any of the CSI shows are my favs but its been a long time since I have watched any new episodes (don’t really watch current shows even though we have dish).
NCIS is my all-time fave. I’ll watch an episode no matter how many times I’ve seen it before.
My favorite is CRIMINAL MINDS.
I watched a couple CM reruns just last night. They kept my mind off the storms.
I’m not even sure which is my favorite, I watch Law and order all the time does that count? Mostly the SVU episodes, oh god and I LOVE MATLOCK I watch reruns all the time, I don’t think that counts though!!!
Thanks for posting today!
Love those old Matlock reruns, too. Thanks for dropping by.
My favorite show is Criminal Minds.
Another vote for Criminal Minds. That show is sometimes so scary I have to hide my eyes!
I live “Justified”
I have a couple episodes of that on my DVR to watch.
That should have ben loved not lived sorry for the typo:)
My fingers always type faster than my brain can spell.
Hmmm….I do enjoy some tv viewing, but I really don’t watch many shows at all. I really like PBS and NatGeo channels.
As far as suspense or cop shows go these are some that I enjoy for now……
3. Person Of Interest
4. Sherlock on PBS
Dalila, I really enjoy all four of those shows – clearly, great minds think alike!
LOL! Happy to be in your group! Usually I’m the weird one or the outsider. 🙂
I like all of them except the modern Sherlock. For some reason he doesn’t appeal to me.
Really Nicole?! That’s OK, if it doesn’t float your boat no biggie. 🙂 There’s lots of other shows out there, many I don’t care for either.
I really like the new Sherlock. For some reason it has me glue to the tube, I can’t wait to see what’s going on in his mind. I really like how they try and show all those wild designs and puzzle like ideas, pretty cool for me. 🙂
Have a nice day and thank you for stopping by today.
Big grin. There are so many that I do like. I maxed out on Downton Abby last night. Love period dramas, too.
Favorite: The Closer. So sad it’s almost over. Also love, Covert Affairs, Blue Collar, Unforgettable and Person of Interest. The British ones, like the New Sherlock, and the oldies; Midsomer Murders, Poirot, Inspector Morse and the newer Inspector Lewis.
Sue, I caught a few episodes of Covert Affairs a while back. I have to catch up with that one.
All the Brit. shows. Watch Midsomer Murders on Netflix all the time. Loved The Closer–will really miss that one.
I enjoy Castle and Body of Proof.
I love Castle too. I don’t watch too much on ABC anymore since they discontinued two of my three soaps. But I can’t give up the cutie Nathan Filion. Love him. Let’s face it I love sexy guys and watching them. Oh, and White Collar is definitely worth watching, but it’s best to watch from the beginning. I watched the first 30 eps. on Netflex.
I really like Body of Proof, Anna! Nice to see portrayals of strong, smart women.
I enjoy Castle and most other police drama shows, but last week we really got into Alcatraz. Thanks for the contest… I look forward to reading something by Marie-Nicole. lisagk(at)yahoo(dot)com
Lisa, I’m also watching Alcatraz. It will be interesting to see where it goes.
It’s probably no surprise, but I watched Alcatraz last week too which reminds me to see when it’s on this week. I need to set the DVR.
Castle, Body of Proof, Person of Interest and Covert Affairs. Marie-Nicole’s stories look really good!
I really do have to give Covert Affairs a try!
Thanks, Robin, and to all who stopped by to share your TV watching additions.
CSI: NY and any of the Law and Order ones
I enjoyed Colombo. For local shows, I like “Galileo” starring actor/singer Fukuyama.
Lots of fantastic shows if you like police procedurals–Don’t forget Southland–it’s said by Eric Lofland, former police officer, etc, to be the most realistic of all.
