Dylan made Alex’s heart race and her blood pound when they were in high school. Then her dad caught them naked in her room and sent Dylan packing. Dylan left town a few weeks later, saying he’d never be back. They’re about to learn you should never say never.
When they meet again four years later, over a mummified corpse in the blazing Arizona desert, what secrets is he carrying, and why does he have to look so damn good? Alex, now a college student and aspiring investigative journalist, can’t decide whether she’d like to find out what she missed all those years ago, or help put him behind bars.
Will she get the chance to make up her mind, before she's marked for murder herself?
*** Fatal Exposure is a full-length novel of 397 pages and is the first in a planned five-book series. It can be read as a stand-alone novel, but romance readers will want to know it contains a happy-for-now ending. Although the suspense aspect of the book is resolved, several sub-plots and the romance are not.
July 2-4: 99 cents

I close my eyes, the sensation of Dylan’s lips against the sensitive skin of my neck sending shivers of delight through me. He nibbles along my jawbone before taking my mouth and I open to his probing tongue. His hands roam my body, pausing to brush softly against my bare breasts and tweak the taut buds at the tips.
I bow upward, seeking firmer contact with Dylan’s hands, his chest, along his naked torso. He captures my hands as they wander downward. “Not yet,” he says.
With only a slight moan of frustration, I relax as he kisses me deeply again, and again starts with the sensitive spot just behind my ear, repeating every delicious move he’s made so far.
“Dylan,” I gasp, desperate for him to touch me where his hands haven’t yet roamed. Desperate to touch him.
“Yes, my love?” he answers. A slight frown creases my face. That doesn’t sound like Dylan…
Alex woke with a jerk, confused to find herself fully clothed and with no Dylan in sight. She moaned as she realized what had gone before was just a dream, fueled no doubt by the memory she’d tried to suppress with one of the romance novels strewn across her bed. So much for that theory.
What the hell was wrong with her, anyway? It had been four years since she and Dylan had almost made love. The dream was embarrassing, far more erotic than anything that had really happened with him, or anyone else for that matter. Nothing like it would ever happen with Dylan, now, but if she were to run into him around town, how could she keep a straight face? And she would. Run into him, that is. There was no help for it in a town like Dodge. Sooner or later, she’d come face to face with him, and unless she missed her guess, hers would light up like a slot machine, complete with ringing bells.
Alex got up and paced in her room, heedless of the late hour. This wouldn’t do. She glared at the books on her bed and then swept them off. Nothing but crime novels from now on. She couldn’t afford to have all those love scenes in her head when she went to sleep, if the result was dreaming of Dylan.
“Alex, are you all right?”
Shit, she’d woken her dad. “Yes, Dad, I’m fine. Some books fell off my bed.”
“Okay, good night.”
Alex kicked one of the offending books, ignoring the allure of the bare male chest on the cover. She swept the rest of them under the bed and looked for something safer on her bookshelf. Moby Dick, that ought to do it. If that didn’t put her to sleep without erotic dreams, nothing would.
