Time for a cover reveal
My next major release is the first in my new contemporary romantic suspense series. For those of you who’ve read the TALISMAN series, or POLE POSITION / PERFECT STRANGER, some of the characters will be familiar to you 🙂
Release date is likely to be end December – mid January.

Marianne needs to find who’s leaking corporate secrets, before her company loses another major contract. What she doesn’t need is an affair with her married boss. Even worse, to fall in love with him.
She discovers the security leak is more than a case of commercial espionage: someone is lying in the shadows, playing games with them. Now more than her heart and career are at stake–her life is on the line.
A quick (unedited) excerpt
“I’m done,” announced Rico. “You guys stay. I want to look over some more data before I turn in.”
Marcus watched him leave, and then turned to Marianne. “You fallen in love with him yet? I hear he leaves a trail of broken hearts behind him.”
She rolled her eyes. “He’s pretty, but not my type.”
A swathe of memories hit him. The first time he met her, in a hotel bar. The two of them working side by side, as they ploughed through a major contract negotiation. Celebrating a new client. Sitting up late and shooting the breeze over a bottle of wine.
Common sense told him to back off, but he ignored it. “What is your type, Marianne?”
She met his gaze, before hers skittered away. She worried her bottom lip with her teeth, and then sat back in her chair and reached for her drink. “I’m not drunk enough to answer that, so I’ll pass.”
That was probably for the best. Marcus swallowed his disappointment and pasted a smile on his face. “Want a malt?”
“Whisky?” Her confusion was amusing. “Do you still drink that Hicksville Bourbon crap?”
Marcus called the waiter. “Two large malts please.” He held up a finger to stop Marianne interrupting. “Do you have any Bruichladdich?” He pronounced it in the traditional Scottish way—Brookle-Addie—and when he caught her gaze, he delighted in the astonishment he saw. “That one good enough for you?”
She laughed and flapped her hands at him. “Delicious. So where have you been learning about malt whiskies? You’ve not been up to Scotland, surely?”
“Jordan gave me a crash course last time we got hammered together.”
Her eyes softened. “I’ve never met Jordan. What’s he like? I mean, everyone talks highly of him, but he gave it all up. Why?”
