Callahan’s a cop. Raine’s new in town. Their first kiss is a beginning but they have a long way to go before they can hope for a happy ending. Callahan’s Fate, a romantic suspense novel against the backdrop of New York City, new from me, available where eBooks are sold.
Callahan grinned and heaved a sigh. “Good,” he said. “I was afraid maybe I’d lost you already. You’re something, you know that?”
His words pleased her, but before she could summon a reply, he bent closer and kissed her without giving her a chance to realize his intention. Cal’s lips grazed hers, light and warm as a summer breeze. A delicious electricity rippled through her body at contact, and she moved to make the kiss last longer. He groaned as his mouth latched onto hers, firm and hard. Callahan kissed her long and hard. Raine’s awareness of his heat and the way his lips delivered a lingering caress made her almost giddy, and when he pulled back, her hands clutched tight to his shirtsleeves. She’d been kissed before, but no first kiss had ever affected her with such intensity.
New York City. It’s a city like no other. Whether it’s a glittering Gotham to a country mouse, a city brimming with possibilities and pleasures, or the Big Apple, center of the known world, nothing else compares. My trip to New York last summer made me familiar enough with the city to be dangerous and I’ll be heading back this year to RWA. Among other things, the trip gave me inspiration for a new romantic suspense novel, Callahan’s Fate. It’s out from Evernight Publishing, just $4.99 at Amazon.com, Bookstrand, All Romance, and more. Buy it direct from Evernight and save a little, too.
It’s a story that involved me on an emotional level and I think it’s a story readers will enjoy. Although the setting is vastly different from the rural background of Ryker’s Justice, the winner of the suspense category in the 2014 Evernight Reader’s Choice Awards, I think it has the same emotional depth, fast paced action, and story.
Here’s the blurb and then the first chapter in its’ entirety followed by buy links! Happy reading.
He’s a cop, one of New York City’s finest. She’s a transplanted teacher, new to the Big Apple. Callahan is streetwise and world weary. Raine is lost in the urban setting. When they meet, the attraction and the emotional connection are powerful. When a former student stalks Raine, he’s also part of Callahan’s unfinished business. The closer they become, the more their lives intersect, the greater the danger. Callahan must put his past and burden of guilt aside. Raine needs to adapt to big city life. Both seek a happily ever after together but with old scores to settle, they have to survive first.
“All right, Romeo, you bet. What’s her name?”
Speaking it evoked the woman—her blue eyes, her ready smile, and her knack for offering comfort when needed. Callahan reflected she made him laugh when he needed some humor, she provided insight when he became thoughtful, and she made him stronger.
“Pretty name,” his partner commented.
“She’s a pretty woman,” he replied.
