When Dave, a serial killer responsible for a string of murders in Seattle, becomes fixated on up-and-coming fashion designer Allie Nash, Detective Ben Sutter and his partner are charged with protecting her life. Although evidence confirms that Dave and Allie’s former neighbor, Jimmy, are heading to her San Francisco home to lay low, she stubbornly refuses to vacate the premises, which she uses for her business. A semi-finalist in Designorama, an important fashion competition, she needs all her equipment to remain competitive. Sutter and Thompson agree to each take a twelve hour shift inside the house, as long as Allie plays her part and continues with the telephone connection she’d inadvertently been drawn into with Dave. As he nears the city, the danger escalates when he claims another victim, leaving his trademark, a heart imprinted with FOREVER MINE on the woman’s body. Terrified of an encounter with Dave, Allie turns increasingly toward Sutter for strength. Having sworn off women, in the wake of a toxic breakup, he finds himself physically attracted to her. Although the detectives have all the angles covered, on the night of the competition, things go very wrong, and Allie faces a life-threatening encounter alone.

THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU -- Contemporary Romance. Published by Crimson Romance, it is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Crimson Romance

Sometimes, it just doesn’t pay to offer an honest opinion. So when Molly Hewitt does, she lands in all kinds of trouble with up-and-coming San Francisco builder, Nick Mancini.  He’s offered the tenants in his small, newly acquired apartment house—the one sitting smack in the middle of his latest condo project—twenty-five grand to vacate the premises. But thanks to Molly, who runs a not-for-profit medical clinic down the street, they’re holding out for a hundred. When Nick discovers Molly is behind the inflated figure, he sets out to do whatever it takes to charm her onto his team. Either he convinces her that his tenants need to downsize their demand or his next project will be digging himself out of bankruptcy. Since she has the face of an angel and a bod most men only dream about, as campaigns go, this one shouldn’t be too painful. Molly, no pushover, is up for the challenge. Or is she? A session with Ouija confirms she’s not immune to Nick’s charms. Not only is he single and available, he has enough sex appeal to melt titanium. Add that to a kiss that puts more than an extra z in sizzle, and Molly starts thinking about the L word. But unless he ups his buyout offer to his tenants and keeps his wrecking ball away from her end of the street—where rumor has him next aiming it— he’s strictly catch and release.
