When drug lord Earl Cavenaugh casually orders his two goons to kill her, Fallon Hargis knows her career as a Drug Enforcement Agent is about to end. The last place she expects to die, however, is in a hotel room in Dallas, Texas. But she's not ready to die - and she'll do whatever it takes to survive. Escaping from the thugs in the hotel who are holding her captive, Fallon knows her only chance is to barge into a stranger's hotel room and pretend to be someone she's not - namely, the naked lover of the sexy stranger she's holding at gun point. Getting more than she bargained for with one Wade Tanner, Fallon is in for another surprise when their staged attempt at love making suddenly becomes a little too real. Once Fallon is out of immediate danger, she's got a lot of questions to answer, and Wade-who wants to protect her and senses a lot of pain underneath her rough veneer-offers her a hiding place until she can find out who at the DEA betrayed her and tried to have her killed. As Wade tries to pull her closer and nearer to his heart, Fallon learns that it's not so bad trusting the ones you love...
It didn't take me long to discover how things worked in the publishing world. You write a book, you mail it off, you get rejected, you write another book. I did this for six years until one day I talked my husband into mailing my manuscript for me. I couldn't take one more look of pity from the postal workers. Being the loving husband that he is, Karl mailed Bachelor Party to Hilary Sares at Kensington to be considered for the Precious Gem line on a Tuesday. On Friday of that same week, Hilary called to offer a contract.
Wow! Wouldn't it be great if everything in life was that easy? Publishing can be a rocky road with lots of highs and lows but, oh, what a fun trip! I love writing.
When I'm not writing, I love doing crafts, and I'll try just about anything. At present, I'm scrapbooking and making necklaces. The necklaces are amateur at best but I'm hoping to improve over time. We'll see :)
I'm country all the way. I love antiques, embroidered scarves, crocheted doilies and quilts.
I met the love of my life when we were kids, we married when we were still just kids even though everyone said it wouldn't last. That was almost 44 years ago and Karl is still my very best friend. We have 2 fabulous children who married fabulous people and gave us four wonderful grandchildren that we can spoil--then return to the peace and quiet of our home.
