I knew I wanted to be a writer the first time I read Pet Cemetery by Stephen King. There was something about that book…it was so terrifying, and so brilliant. I was in high school then, and couldn’t sleep in the same room with it. It showed me the power of the written word.

After writing short stories, and working on the yearbook throughout high school, I postponed my writing during college, and didn’t pick it up again, until I quit my secretarial job, to stay home with my children, three years ago. I live in a quiet little town in Tennessee, with my husband, Quinton, and our two children. Tracy City, is a place where everyone knows everyone else, and the response to the news of my sale has been great already. Most of them can’t believe their mild-mannered tax preparer writes about killers! Although I enjoy all genres, romantic suspense is what I love. There’s nothing better than a good, pulse-pounding story, that makes you a little afraid to turn out the lights…

About This Book
Overview

How hard could it be to kidnap a pampered little rich girl?

Especially if you’re bounty hunter extraordinaire Dante Giovanni, who normally prowls the underworld in search of the most vicious criminals. Piece of cake, Dante thinks, when reclusive businessman Gary Vandergriff offers him a cool half million to bring home his estranged daughter, Nadia.

Enter Nadia.

His first meeting with her is stunning; both literally and figuratively. He foils an attempt on her life, and falls immediately under her spell. It’s not gonna be hard duty, Dante thinks, keeping her safe from the Mexican drug lord infuriated by her stepfather’s expanding meth operation. He’ll take her out of harm’s way, no problem, get her back to her father, and enjoy the ride along the way. Everything is great.

Until he delivers her into Enemy Hands.
