Guest Author: Jerri Hines & Giveaway!!

I’m very pleased to welcome back Jerri Hines, writing as Colleen Connally.  Jerri has a brand new and pulse-pounding romantic suspense just hitting the shelves this week, and she’s here to tell us about it.

                                  The Allure of Romantic Suspense

What’s your favorite genre to read?  When you read romance you enter into a world of fantasy where you know there will be a happy ending. Usually it means a few hours of escape from the real world around us. But what happens when you add a bit of mystery and suspense?

Doesn’t a good mystery make you want to cuddle up under a blanket? Who doesn’t like the suspense of a whodunit? Adding a bit of suspense keeps the reader entertained until the end. From a young age, we strive to figure out the mysteries surrounding us. From a young age, we are presented with puzzles to solve. We are teased with information that makes us such for answers. Think about when you struggle to figure out how to make the pieces fit to your puzzle or even doing a crossword puzzle. Our minds love to be engaged and challenged. That’s what a good mystery does. It captures our imagination.

Fragmented delivers— a challenging mystery, intrigue, danger and romance. Fragmented holds an enthralling storyline that will grip you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the end. What would you do to protect the ones you love? What extremes would you go to?

Blurb:

The first in the Boston’s Crimes of Passion Series!

She would do anything to protect her family…
Cameron Quinn watched her father fall into a world of despair after being falsely accused of causing her mother’s death. Now, her brother is a suspect in a crime she knows he’s not capable of committing. She’ll risk everything to save her brother from the same fate as her father, even destroying evidence that implicates him in a series of murders.
He would do anything to win a case…

ADA Darren Kennedy is known as ‘the bulldog.’ He doesn’t lose. When a killer emerges on the streets of Boston, he’s dead-set on putting that killer behind bars…along with anyone that stands in his way.
A killer would do anything to get his heart’s desire…

Cameron soon discovers that the police aren’t the only ones who suspect her of covering for her brother. The murderer is still out there and he isn’t happy his plans have been disrupted. Now, the twisted psychopath has turned his attention towards Cameron and will stop at nothing until he has her in his control.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?  You can find Fragmented at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Amazon UK.  And check out Jerri’s website for details of her other books and also do the same at her Colleen Connally blog!

And have a peek at Fragmented’s upcoming facebook party on Dec. 9.  Jerri will be giving away some amazing gifts, so you should definitely check it out!


On The Road With The Jaunty Quills

Jaunty

I’m hosting romantic suspense author Pamela Clare over at The Jaunty Quills today.  She’s talking about her fabulous new I-Team novel and giving away books–you should join us! 


Guest Author: Pamela Clare & Giveaway!!

Pamela

I’m so thrilled to be featuring Pamela Clare on the blog today because that means her new book is out–hooray!!  Most of you know that Pamela writes the most amazing romantic suspense (and historical romance).  Her books are exciting, suspenseful, deeply emotional, and have characters who leap off the pages.

Her new book is Striking Distance, and it’s the sixth installment in her highly acclaimed I-Team Series, which features a group of investigative reporters.  Striking Distance has been receiving phenomenal reviews, like this coveted Top Pick from RT Book Reviews:

“This sixth I-Team installment sees Clare at her very best, combining scorching desire with a gripping, often painful, exploration of healing and redemption. The plot’s mystery and suspense elements are exceptionally well researched and expertly plotted, but the real achievement lies in her beautifully crafted main couple. Her heroine’s ordeal is unspeakably painful, but her strength never wavers. The chemistry with her steadfast hero never lacks for sizzle, but the emotional bond they share allows them to go beyond the physical to a profound, unforgettable love.”

Striking Distance

Here’s the back cover blurb:

Her past is a secret—even to her.
Discovering it will be the most dangerous move of her life.

TV reporter Laura Nilsson, known as the “Baghdad Babe,” spent eighteen months in an Al Qaeda compound after being kidnapped live on the air. Two years later, she’s still wondering why.

No rescue mission in Javier Corbray’s fourteen years as a Navy SEAL affected him the way Laura’s rescue did. No woman has stirred his protective instincts the way she has. And he wants her more than he’s ever wanted anyone.

As Laura and Javier’s passion ignites, so does Laura’s need to discover the mystery of her past. Especially when she learns that her abduction was not random—and that she’s still a target for a killer with an impenetrable motive. Now Javier will have to rely on his skills to keep the woman he loves from being struck down before she dares uncover the truth.

Believe me when I tell you that you’ll want to read this book.  I have the feeling it will end up on bestseller lists and on a lot of best books of the year lists, and rightly so.  Pamela is a phenomenal writer, and the I-Team Series is everything I’m looking for in romantic suspense.  The books is available on Amazon, B & N, and in the iTunes store.  Check out Pamela’s website for more details and additional buy lines.

For my readers, Pamela is giving away a FREE digital copy of the erotic prequel to Striking Distance to everyone who comments today.  Wow!  First Strike is another great read, so you don’t want to miss out out on this!  Just leave a comment–tell us who your favorite romance hero is (any genre)–to be eligible.

LETHAL CONFESSIONS NOW ON FREE!!

LethalConfessions_final_600x933

Lethal Confessions, the romantic suspense I co-wrote with my hubby as VK Sykes, is now FREE on Amazon through Nov. 4!  I really love this book–the heroine is a tough but emotionally wounded detective, out to capture a vicious serial killer and find some closure after the murder of her twin sister.  And the hero is pretty yummy, if I do say so myself, a former Marine turned pro athlete.  Together, they set off some pretty great sparks!

You can download Lethal Confessions here.  It’s also available in print and will be for sale on B & N, Kobo, iBooks, and Smashwords in December.  You can read an excerpt on our VK Sykes website.

Have a great weekend!
