Happy Sunday! Here are seven lines from my upcoming release, the dark romantic suspense Fiery 10-16. A scorching story of desire, abuse, and bravery.
In this scene, Dawn has taken her children to the fire station in the middle of the night. Just back from an exhausting situation over at campus, Runo is having a shower.

A silhouette appeared in the locker room door.
So damn sexy in her black mold-to-her-body dress.
What did she want?
Her shiny gaze wandered down his naked chest and abs, and stopped at towel level.
Holding his breath, Runo sat on a bench with his elbows on his knees and stared back.
Runo Wiggins is a scarred man, the wounds etched into his psyche deeper than those on his skin. But he loves his job: fighting fires helps reenact his survival of a house fire as a teen, one that killed his mother and brutal stepfather.
Dawn Caravello is married to a psychotic drunk. She can take his beatings as long as he doesn’t touch their children, and she’ll do anything to put food on the table, even if it means stealing from the town hero.
When Runo meets the fiery Dawn, sparks fly. But he suspects she is victim of the same abuse as his mother was. As day turns to night, the past and the present blend in an exhausting, hold-your-breath chase to prevent another death.
Fiery 10-16 is coming out on the 27th! Preorder your copy at:
