Ready for your first excerpt from my July 16th release, PERSONAL PROTECTION? It's not a traditional "meet-cute", but there's certainly some tension when my hero and heroine first meet.
Prince Ivan of Lukinburg is in Kansas City for important trade negotiations. But someone doesn't want him to succeed. He has no idea when he first meets Officer Carly Valentine that the kick-ass tomboy cop will wind up masquerading as his girlfriend to provide some very personal protection. It will require a Cinderella makeover to turn Carly into a consort fit for a prince. But as the threats grow more deadly, they discover there's nothing fake about their feelings for each other.
If you're in New York City at the end of the July, you can find me at the Romance Writers of America Conference at the Marriott Marquis. I'll be at both the Harlequin signing on Thursday, July 25th, and the Literacy Autographing on Saturday, July 27th. Stop by and say hi!
