Woohoo! I love giving away free stuff! And I truly love this story. My own precious redhead inspired my character of Cat McPherson. Here’s the short version of the plot:

Someone wants to complete the final assignment of a murdered hit man.

Her dad’s gone, her diner’s closing, and her car’s in the lake. Cat McPherson has nothing left to lose … except her life. And a madman, bent on revenge, is determined to take that, as well. Her former boyfriend, Ray Alexander, returns as a hero from his foreign mission, bringing back souvenirs in the form of death-threats. When several attempts are made on Cat’s life, she must find a way to trust Ray, the man who broke her heart.

Keeping Cat safe from a fallen cartel leader might prove impossible for Ray, but after seeing his mission destroyed and hearing of the deaths of several godly people, he knows better than to ignore the man’s threats. Cat’s resistance to his protection and the stirring of his long-denied feelings for her complicate his intentions, placing them both in a fight for their lives.

Can she survive when ultimate power want’s her dead?

I hope you will take advantage of this discount! Don’t forget to give me a yell ( if you purchase COUNTER POINT by October 30. I’ll have a TREAT for you! 🙂



You Be The Judge!

cpcoverfI’m so excited to choose the brand that will be used for all of the books in this new series, Heath’s Point Suspense. But I need some help in choosing.

Heath’s Point is a fictitious town in East Texas with a population of about 6,500. The town was grafted from several real places that I’ve enjoyed visiting: Commerce, Glen Rose, Honey Grove, and Ennis. The problem with Heath’s Point is that it’s population is dwindling …

… by one murder victim at a time.
