Exciting stuff– Berkley sent me the draft back cover copy for Book 3 (the summary of the book that goes on the back cover) and I really like it! It’s only a draft, so this could be tweaked a little, but here it is:
FATE HAS THROWN TWO SWORN ENEMIES…
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends in bloodshed. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago—and nearly ruining his career…
…INTO EACH OTHER’S ARMS
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it’s no joke: the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes—and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension…
So there it is… I hope to have more to share in the upcoming weeks– like the title (we have a potential title, but haven’t finalized it yet) and the front cover art. Always fun, these stages where the book all starts to come together.
In other developments, I wanted to mention that I’ll be doing a book signing on August 2nd with fellow Chicago author Beth Kery. I’m really looking forward it! Here’s the information, so if you’re in the area on August 2nd, drop on by:
