Excerpt:

She wasn’t concerned about going back up to the house alone. She walked home late and alone hundreds of times. Besides, the guys completed all the upgrades in their security and now the campus was even more secure than when first built. She would grab one of the carts and be home in less than five minutes. As she finished shutting things down and readied her desk for the next day, she realized she was the only person left in the building.

“Don’t be silly,” she chided herself. “Security has been beefed up and there is absolutely not one thing to worry about.”

Still an uneasy feeling grabbed hold and wouldn’t let go. She looked out her window to make sure a cart was available. The night was clear, stars filled the sky, and the moon was a meager sliver. Everything took on a sinister appearance. There were no carts sitting under the streetlight, where they were supposed to be. She decided to contact the front gate and make sure there would be cart and a security guard out front when she wanted to leave.

She pressed the intercom button to the gate and let it ring for a bit. She waited, and pressed the button again.

“Strange.”

She pulled the file out of her desk drawer to see who was on duty. Frank, the shift boss, was on. He was one of the first people they hired when they started to staff the campus and one of their most conscientious employees. Payton sat back in her chair.

I’m being silly. I’m sure it’s been a busy night, and Frank has probably stepped away to get a cup of coffee.

She grabbed her purse out of her desk drawer, double-checked to verify her cell phone was in her jacket pocket, and left for the main gate to get a cart. The gate sat directly across the parking lot and the entire area was well lit with streetlights. An ominous dread slithered down the back of Payton’s neck. Was there someone else in the vicinity? She scanned the entire area. No one.

“These blasted psychic abilities,” she mumbled.

She thought she had more control over them. She needed to heed Victory’s advice and work on honing her skill on a daily basis.

As she approached the gate, she noticed there appeared to be no one in the security shack. Not unusual, this often happened at night. When it was quiet and the gate locked, instead of sitting in the tiny shack, the guards would stay in the security office across the street from the shack. There were lights on in the office, a safe bet Frank was there. She pictured a cup of coffee in his hand as he watched his favorite talk show.

Payton veered toward the office building, she gave one last backward glance at the shack. She stopped in midstride. Something seemed off, and she noticed the door ajar. The door was equipped with an automatic close-and-lock feature. The only way for the door to be left open was if someone stood in the doorway or something prohibited the door from closing.

She walked up to the shack and reached out to take the doorknob. Her eyes tracked down the length of the door, until she saw what kept the door from closing. There was a black shoe wedged in the doorway. She stared at the shoe, her mind not able to register what she saw. Her eyes traveled from the shoe, to the dark blue pant leg, to the matching shirt…Payton gasped.

There lay Frank, crumpled across the floor, a dark wet spot on the left side of his chest. She reached into her jacket pocket, and fumbled for her phone. She finally pulled the phone out, and pressed the power button, as she felt the strangest prick at the side of her neck. She turned to her left, where she noticed movement. Her head started to spin and her eyes blurred. She caught a blurry image of a man right before she hit the ground.

Surrender by Angela Ford

Surrender by Angela Ford


A sexy narcotics agent and a rich suburban widow are weaved into a tangled mess…one hot steamy night weaves them into tangled sheets.



SURRENDER

 Lauren Reynolds is widowed after an explosion in her husband’s warehouse. She believed he ran a legitimate business. The local police told her it was an accident. On the day of his funeral, there is a knock at her door to tell her different. 

Narcotics Agent Brett Donovan has been investigating John Reynolds for the past several months. A drug cartel operation has been tracked out of John’s warehouse. As if that information wasn’t enough to digest, Agent Donovan warns her there was a hit assigned for both Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds. 

Brett is assigned to protect the suburban widow. She may be gorgeous but his first impression of her tells him she’s a rich spoiled snob and he has to put up with her. Brett is good at his job. The first attempt on her life fails but Brett knows it’s only the beginning. He takes her into hiding. There’s definite attraction but there’s also secrets that surface as they continue to escape danger. 

He lives for danger. She lives for new shoes at Saks. One night in a motel room with no-air-conditioning and a sexy naked agent captures their desire for one another. Will the tangled mess they’re weaved into and their secrets lead them back into tangled sheets?

Is desire enough when they are from two different worlds? Or are they?




Excerpt from Surrender
“You need to relax. Don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re very uptight,” Brett informed her.
 “I have every right to be uptight. My husband just died. Someone wants me dead. You’re parading around naked. I’m stuck in a dingy motel room—with no air conditioning I might add.”
 “There’s only one way to shut you up.” Brett smiled and took her in his arms quickly and kissed her.
 Lauren took a step back and looked at him. She wasn’t sure whether to slap him or kiss him. An inevitable desire to kiss him answered for her. Her hands touched his chest. She felt his heart pound. He hadn’t yet dressed. She felt his arousal against her. His lips parted. His fresh-showered scent drove her senses wild. Nothing else mattered at this moment. Desire overcame her as she met his inviting kiss. His lips brushed against hers as the thought of danger left her thoughts. The fact she’d just buried her husband no longer registered. She opened her mouth to deepen his kiss and the outside world disappeared. She stepped back toward the bed. He followed her lead without letting go of the kiss. A tangled mess led to tangled sheets as they devoured every inch of each other’s bodies.



 Surrender can also be found in the Valentine Romance collection.

New Valentine book release from Sharon Kleve. Read it cuddled up to the one you love.
Book Blurb:
Corny is up to her old tricks in Valentine Promise. Book 5 in the Corny Myers Series. Corny’s old boss appears in a dream and asks for a Valentine favor—to avenge his death. She’s a pet detective not a human detective. 
With the help of a few friends Corny fulfills her promise with only a few stitches, a concussion, and a trip to the hospital. 
Steve loves Corny, but she’ll be the death of him. He knows she’s up to something that could get her hurt. 
When Corny makes a promise there is no stopping her.  


Here’s another exciting book from Amber Daulton. If you love cowboys you are certainly going to enjoy this story.

Melody Bennett's parents trampled on her teenage romance with a drifter ten years ago. He disappeared without a word of goodbyes on the night they had planned to run away together. Since then, she cast aside her foolish notions of happily ever after and worked hard alongside the hired help to care for the majestic horses on her family's ranch. She refused to give love another chance and resigned to live her life alone.

Max Fortaine returned with a heart guarded by secrets and a sizable bank account that took blood, prayers and tears to fund. The cowboy disrupted Melody's peaceful existence with stolen kisses and a promise for more. After a lifetime of running, mistakes and regrets, he vowed to reclaim the only woman he ever loved... if only her overprotective father didn't stand in his way.



One last great author to check out, Carol Ann Kauffman. It may not be Christmas, but this story is a delightful read any time of the year.
Christmas is Madison’s favorite holiday, but this year is different. She has to face it alone, without her father and her best friend/boyfriend Bob, amid the problems of running her own high-stakes business and dealing with family issues. 

Can the spirit of Christmas lift a heavy heart?
