April Author Updates

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone is having a great week. I’m in the process of writing Book 3 in the Style and Profile Series and hope to have it out for purchase later this year. I’ve played with the cover some. I ran a poll for this book last year, but I had a few more ideas that I thought might work better with the story. You may remember this.

The title is FOR THE DEFENSE and the main male character, Jaxon Montgomery, is a lawyer who fights for those who have been wrongfully arrested or convicted. He represented Jon Clayton in Book 2 BEFORE WE WED when he was being framed for a crime. Below are the covers I have in mind. If you like one better than the one we chose last year, let me know which one in the comments section.

They have so much to teach each other when it comes to desire.

She’s not being subtle with her flirting any longer, and his thoughts begin to shift. He wants her, but he wants it quick with no strings attached. Will he rearrange his plans when he finds Alex to be wild and wanton, getting under his skin and creating an urge in him he can no longer contain?

Murder is a Dirty Business by Tricia L. Sanders

Between hot flashes and divorce papers, a middle-aged woman reconsiders her outlook on life when she butts heads with a hot detective during a murder investigation. 

When Cece Cavanaugh’s husband empties their joint bank account, steals her designer luggage, and runs off with a younger woman, Cece must decide whether to ask her manipulative mother-in-law for a handout or get a job. Choosing the easier path, Cece lands a job cleaning a crime scene where a high school coach was murdered. When his wife is implicated—a young woman Cece practically raised—Cece finds herself mopping floors, balancing an empty checkbook, and ferreting out a killer.

Amid all this messy business, Cece bumps heads with a handsome detective. She tries to ignore her growing attraction to the detective, but he gives new meaning to the term “hot flash.”

After she stumbles onto a clue that could vindicate her friend, her elation turns to panic when she haphazardly confronts the killer. Through the danger and romance, Cece discovers self-reliance and inner strength.

And that crime—at least, someone else’s—does pay the bills.

She changes her looks and lures Dusty, the son of the gang’s leader into a trap. Now that he’s her prisoner and leverage, will torturing this bad boy get him to tell her where her sister is? Or will the frightening, rough and violent world he belongs to, where loyalty is the key to survival, stand in the way?

Dusty, bulging with muscles and incredibly handsome, has been tricked and taken by a woman half his size, yet all he can think about is kissing her again and protecting her from the evil named Roar. His own father. Somehow, when it comes to Cameron, Dusty doesn’t care about his image as the dangerous Night Skull bad boy or The Night Skulls themselves. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.

Her desire for him is evident, but when she knows he’s the reason behind her sister’s abduction and the one who has left her there unprotected, can Cameron forgive him and let him help her get her sister back?

Will Cameron get her sister out alive—or get her out at all? Can Cameron and Dusty forgive each other and overcome the darkness their lives forced upon them?

Nine Minutes Later, filled with unexpected turns, takes us into the world of motorcycle gangs and inside two hearts that are about to change for life. Curl up under a blanket with this short intense read and find out what happens between Cameron and Dusty in Nine Minutes Later.

  1. Great new ideas Kim. I still like one chosen last year best.I like the harbor/city scape which adds another element outside of the judicial aspect. I know that’s the main thrust, but I’m sure a lot of the action also happens outside of the court room. Just my .02 🙂
