Happy Sunday! Here are seven lines from my latest release, the dark romantic suspense Fiery 10-16. A scorching story of desire, abuse, and bravery.
In this scene, Runo tells Dawn how much he still misses his late mother…
Warm hands touched his face, cupped his wet cheeks.
Surprised, he looked up and blinked away the water blurring his view.
Dawn leaned close, her expression motherly and tender.
How could she be such a good woman, so sweet and understanding? God knew he’d needed one like her for ages. Someone special, made just for him. Maybe all that time, all those lonely years longing for a partner and lover but not daring to have one, he’d waited for her. Dawn.
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.
