I'm very excited to report that I sold my romantic suspense novel, Fatal Affair, to Carina Press today! In case you haven't yet heard of Carina, it is Harlequin's new all digital line. So Fatal Affair will be released as an e-book in June. Carina is an exciting new endeavor, and I'm really excited to be involved in the early stages. My editor is also considering book 2 in the series, Fatal Justice, which continues Sam and Nick's story.

About Fatal Affair...
On the morning of the most important vote of Senator John O’Connor’s career he is late—again. His best friend and chief of staff, Nick Cappuano sets off to O'Connor’s apartment expecting to roust him from bed and hoping he is alone. But what Nick finds is that O’Connor, the handsome, amiable Senator from Virginia, has been brutally murdered, and Nick’s world comes crashing down around him. Complicating the disaster, the detective assigned to the case is none other than Sam Holland, Nick’s one-night stand from six years earlier, the woman who broke his heart and haunts his dreams. With six years of unfinished business hanging between them and more than a few scores to settle personally and professionally, Nick and Sam set out to find the senator's killer while trying—and failing—to resist the overwhelming attraction between them that seems to have only grown over the years.

It soon becomes clear that the Senator’s past holds secrets that not only led to his death but now endanger Nick and Sam as well. Working together to find a killer and rediscover the love they thought they lost long ago, they must put the past behind them and build a future that offers a world of new opportunities for both of them—including an offer from the Virginia Democrats for Nick to finish the last year of John’s term.

So watch for Sam and Nick in June, and thanks so much for allowing me to share my exciting news with you!
