While I enjoyed watching celebrity chefs brandishing knives on television, I wasn’t comfortable being in close range with potential weapons.

Joanne Guidoccio


“All that hardware—doesn’t it bother you to carry it?”

“It would bother me more if I had a situation and didn’t have my weapons with me. Don’t worry.”

Marian Lanouette
All the Pretty Brides (2019 Daphne du Maurier Finalist)


Andie Mills stood behind her weapon of choice—a slick black Nikon camera with a 70mm lens.

She palmed the weapon, the metal comforting. A quick gulp of air before she glanced under the bed. Nothing. The closet?

Marsha West


Sarah’s mouth went dry, and she turned, ready to use her camera as a weapon.

Sharon Wray


Left with no other option, she dropped, rolled, and came up fighting. “DEA, drop your weapons.”

Jacquie Biggar


He lowered his weapon, and his face softened. He smiled at me, a strange kind of recognition dawning.

Sara had fallen off the pedestal Tom had placed her on. He’d thought her perfect, so to find out she was a deceitful woman, like all women, he lost all sexual interest.

Jacquie Biggar


I couldn’t fathom the notion of Cassandra faking or putting on the airs of a psychic. It wasn’t in her nature to be deceitful.

Joanne Guidoccio


“The small wiry ones seem to have an abundance of hidden strength. We’re not questioning Arnie until we’re sure of the body count.”

Marian Lanouette
All the Pretty Brides (2019 Daphne du Maurier Finalist)


“This is harder than I imagined,” she rubbed her hands down her jeans. “It’s like I’m being sneaky or deceitful.”

Marsha West


Nate would lie, cheat, steal, kill, and die, but he wanted one thing in return: he wanted to remember this moment with Sarah forever.

Nate had no money or job or honor. His courtesy was the only thing he could offer her.

Sharon Wray


Overcome with emotion, I shook my head. “You should honor your mother—”

Joanne Guidoccio


Still clutching the necklace and unable to hold back tears, he spoke to his sister first, “I’m so sorry I let you down, Kendra. I know how much it meant for me to watch over Lexie. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to honor that promise to you.”

Maybe a sum­mer fling would be fun. At least, until she high-tailed it back to her fancy life in New York after the season ended.

Marsha West


Isabel pointed at Etienne. “Did you fire shots at the historian and Walker this morning?” He smiled. “A few. For fun.”

Sharon Wray


Mona laughed, though there was nothing funny about the situation, and headed toward the closed door, his lordship’s name emblazoned in gold script across the wood paneling. “The only regret I have is that I didn’t shoot the bastard when I had the chance.”

Jacquie Biggar


Food shopping and a karate workout followed by housecleaning and laundry. Not his idea of a fun day.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Fortunately, there were plenty of women around these days who didn’t mind carrying on an affair consisting of no more than a few fun evenings, dinner or a movie, followed by a raucous roll in the sack.

Claire Gem


“We’ve decided to spend tomorrow on Vancouver Island. The kids had so much fun there last week.”

The sun cast a glow on my hair, and the wind whipped behind me. I looked peaceful, and for the first time I could admit, beautiful.

“The splash of bright yellow in the pillows is a slice of sunshine and gives me hope. And a fireplace. Thank you, Jerrod.”

Marsha West


Pete gave Sally his trademark smile filled with sunshine and unicorns, while Nate, apparently, didn’t warrant a casual hey. Then again, Nate wasn’t doing the sideways tango with the club’s waitresses.

Sharon Wray


On those days, I heard way too much from her about cruising the Mediterranean. She especially believed the trip would make a nice honeymoon. Whatever.

Vicki Batman


Tony joined her, his hand going to her elbow when she slipped on the bank.

Jacquie Biggar


Having spent the first two decades of his life in sunny Greece, he had never fully adapted to Canadian winters.

Joanne Guidoccio


His tongue sought the warmth of her mouth. She tasted like coffee and sunshine and he wanted more of her.

The Sophia he remembered had dreamed of turning the ranch into a guest retreat where visitors could get a taste of ranch life by taking part in different activities such as a cattle drive, trail riding, branding—all the things that made dude ranches a favorite with vacationers looking for adventure and luxury in one sweet package.

Jacquie Biggar


My instinct was to pull up the pictures from my last trip here. The first one was a picture of Jett reclining back in a beach chair, sun blazing, and the wind sweeping the hair off his forehead.

S.A.Taylor
Follow Me (work in progress)


“Of course, dear, this is your vacation, too. While I love having all of you home, I don’t expect you to hang out with me all the time.”

Marsha West


Rafe took Juliet’s hand and held it against his heart. “We’ll go to Venice for our second honeymoon. After lots of wine and a dinner of bigoli in salsa, we’ll walk the streets and eat meringues bigger than Calum’s head.”

Sharon Wray


This trip would bind our future. The Jaunt from Hell proved to be the last straw.

Vicki Batman


He had about five weeks of accumulated vacation time that we had planned to use when we went on safari to South Africa.

I could imagine him spending his summer weekends sailing on Georgian Bay or golfing at one of the many courses in the area, and during the winter participating in all the winter sports the North had to offer.

Joanne Guidoccio


He’d specifically told her he was looking for a grandmotherly woman to take care of Jane over the summer break. If Josie Sparks was a senior, he’d eat his hat.

Jacquie Biggar


The next day I visited the local coffee shop, took a cab to Bondi beach, and spent the day writing under a huge umbrella.

Jared Martin needed to know he wasn’t playing a game. The way he’d suffered disgrace at the hands of that man was unacceptable. He wanted his honor back.

Jacquie Biggar


Everybody has to grieve, or remember, or honor . . . hell, I don’t know. We all have our own ways to cope with losing a loved one.

Claire Gem


Whenever I had visited, she waved me to the head of the table, an honor in an Italian household.

Joanne Guidoccio


Hair mattered for nothing, and if hers stayed white it would be a badge of honor.

Kathryn Jane


Her mother’s chocolate sheet cake, banana pudding, and apple pie honored her children even though only one would be present for the 4th of July celebrations.

Marsha West


Nate had no money or job or honor. His courtesy was the only thing he could offer Sarah, and he prayed it’d be enough.

Sharon Wray


“Nevertheless, we have to go back. It’s all about honor and integrity. You can pay with your dollar, exactly what you should’ve done in the first place.”

I watched Jake’s crazy exterminator antics. Usually, most girls avoided killing the critters, not manly he-men. “You could try—”

Vicki Batman


The thought of her in bed with another man had the predictable effect of making him see red, jealousy twisting his gut into tight knots. Even though he hadn’t wanted her sexually in a long time, she was still his, God-dammit.

Jacquie Biggar


Both Conner and Jacob’s whistles split the air. Mercy scowled, and Daniel had to tamp down a flare of jealousy that surprised even him.

Claire Gem


Whenever I had thought of introducing the two men, I feared my feelings for David would provoke Carlo’s jealousy and lead to a break-up.

Joanne Guidoccio


”Do you always kiss your jockey, or just that one in particular?” Was he jealous?

Kathryn Jane


Mike almost laughed. Hard not to miss the sound of jealousy in her voice.

Marsha West


Nate smiled, and Sarah couldn’t help but stare at the red flush staining his cheeks. Should she be jealous of Miss Nell? Sarah was kind of silently joking and kind of not.

“You know that I’m a murderer? That I led my men into an ambush? I know the rumors, Sarah. I’m living the nightmare.”

Sharon Wray


I watched Jake’s crazy exterminator antics. Usually, most girls avoided killing the critters, not manly he-men. “You could try—”

Vicki Batman


He read the headline. Who names a killer the ABC Murderer? Was he an escapee from Sesame Street out to do in the Alphabet Gang? But one glance at the shocked and stony faces in front of him and he knew this was serious.

Jacquie Biggar


Sometimes he wears headphones, and if he’s alone he’s got the volume up so damned loud he can’t hear me if I scream bloody murder.

Claire Gem


“You heard Bob last night. To most of them, I’m still Meanie, capable of almost anything. Even murder.” Tears stung her eyelids.

Joanne Guidoccio


He wanted her dead. And he was more than capable of murder.

Kathryn Jane


He needed a Brutus-sized cold one at the end of the day, but he’d have to wait. He had a job to do, a murder to solve.

“I thought it would be funny. I’m sorry. I didn’t know it was a murder weapon.”
