“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.

S.A.Taylor
Shutter (work in progress)


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

“I love you. You’re my daughter, and there’s nothing you can ever do that will change that.”

Marsha West


Because Sarah loved him, that meant there was only one thing to do. Even if she had to take on gunrunners, Green Berets, a bitchy senator, and the entire Fianna army, she was going to save Nate Walker.

Sharon Wray


Love didn’t happen at first sight. Lust, hell, yeah. But love… that was something poets wrote about, it wasn’t reality.

Jacquie Biggar


Daniel wasn’t going to let this get between him and the woman he loved. He— Wait. What? Loved? Where the hell had that come from?

Claire Gem


She closed her eyes and held out her hands. “And you are in love with someone who is worthy of you.”

Joanne Guidoccio


She told him of a childhood full of love and support from the people who rescued her as an infant, the ones she had called Mom and Dad.

“No, I’ll tell them. They should hear it from their father. God, I hope the media hasn’t broadcasted her name yet. Hurry,” Todd said, an urgency to his tone.

Marian Lanouette


Trying to confirm where Addie’s daughter was, the nurse picked up the chart from the end of the bed. Again, hope battered for a little light.

Marsha West


“When Nate watches you, I see something else in his eyes. Something that looks like hope.”

Sharon Wray


Uncle Pete frowned, his brows like bats wings over his eyes. “You better hope the hell not, kid. Your brother doesn’t like when you screw up.”

Jacquie Biggar


That’s what she’d intended to sleep in. She didn’t realize—although she had hoped—she’d be stripping them off before she closed her eyes to sleep tonight.

Claire Gem


I loved the feisty artist and hoped her bold prints would inspire my boomer clients to shake up their lives.

Joanne Guidoccio


“I hope you’re not sharing that with the government agencies.”

“I want,” said Callista, “you at my side while I give birth to our children if that’s in the cards for us, or standing strong with me while we make a new plan if it isn’t.”

Kathryn Jane


We need a plan in case this blows up in our faces. Whoever killed that poor woman understood what they were doing by pointing the cops in your direction.

Marian Lanouette


“Kim wants a divorce. I don’t plan to give her one. Mother would disown me. No way this can happen.”

Marsha West


Now all Sarah had to do was mail it without Nate finding out. It wasn’t a great plan, but forward movement nonetheless.

Sharon Wray


Her noble plan to rid the earth of the scum-sucking leeches ruining so many young girls lives seemed doomed to failure. She couldn’t even save herself.

Jacquie Biggar


There’s nothing simple about the wedding her family is planning. Last night after she spent two hours on the phone with her mother, I suggested we elope to Vegas and be married by an Elvis impersonator.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


She scanned him up and down, as though it was the first she’d noticed his grimy condition. “Get yourself washed up, boy, if you plan on eatin’ lunch at the same table with me.”

Claire Gem


Was that Sarah’s email? I archived it along with the ever-growing batch I planned to peruse at the month’s end.

A budding artist, she would take out her sketch pad and draw whenever she finished her work or needed to separate herself from the others.

Joanne Guidoccio


The boy buttoned his lip and appeared to reconsider an eye roll halfway through. Which made his expression darned comedic, but didn’t take away from the seriousness of the situation.

Kathryn Jane


He loved his rescue pup. It hadn’t taken long for them to bond when he first laid his eyes on Brigh, shaking in the corner of the vet’s office, afraid of the world as she scrunched down to make herself invisible.

Marian Lanouette


“I’m putting a bandage on it now, Kim, but I’ll be more comfortable if Jennifer takes a look. It appears you will require stitches.”

Marsha West


He ached to go to her, to take her in his arms, but she had to decide on her own if she trusted him. The next move had to be hers.

Sharon Wray


“That’ll take too long. I need to meet really, really new people now. I’ve rounded the bend and am headed over the hill.”

Vicki Batman


There was something eerie about watching a person take their last breath.

Jacquie Biggar


Sex for him had always been hard and fast – a means to an end – but Quin deserved so much more. Mostly, she deserved his respect,

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


“You’re testing my control, Ms. Larson,” he rasped into my ear. He apparently had no intention to take this to the bedroom just yet.

She reached up and cupped his face. “It’s okay. I don’t deserve you anyway. Not after running out on you yesterday.

Claire Gem


I felt happy for Adam, who deserved a break, one delayed unnecessarily in my opinion.

Joanne Guidoccio


She’d worked her ass off, and damned well deserved to be going into the field today, even if Broughton didn’t think she was capable.

Kathryn Jane


An idea had popped into her head when the commissioner’s wife had praised him more than Melinda thought Jake deserved.

Marian Lanouette


How could she possibly understand? Joe Sterling had been like a father. He didn’t deserve someone like Joe as a father figure, a mentor, a friend.

S.A. Taylor
Shutter (work-in-progress)


It’s like she thinks she doesn’t deserve the space she takes up in the world, so she doesn’t do anything to cause anyone extra trouble.

Marsha West


In their anger and frustration, they’d let their physical and operational security go. Since she deserved an answer, Nate offered, “We were Green Berets.”

Sharon Wray


“Map challenged?” He passed me his gadget of torture.

“Don’t know how since I earned a merit badge in map skills.”

Believe it or not, I fell in love as I lay dying in the ICU. I was scared shitless. Then you were there.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Heath closed his eyes and shook his head. “I can’t believe I’m standing in the bedroom of a complete stranger in the middle of the night in my pajamas.”

Claire Gem


Leo Mulligan—who didn’t have an airy-fairy bone in his body—believed in her powers.

Joanne Guidoccio


Alex agreed the coincidence seemed suspicious, but she’d reached a point in her life where she believed the universe often put things right where they needed to be.

Kathryn Jane


It’d been hard to believe that skinny stick of a woman had it in her, until her fist landed in my face.

Marian Lanouette


“I don’t know what to believe right now,” she admitted. “A man you loathed is dead, and you were the last person to see him alive.”

S.A. Taylor
Shutter (work-in-progress)


“Yes, but he’s a friend of Hunter’s, and they both went on about how clumsy I was. After a time, I believed them.”

Marsha West


“I still can’t believe it.” Sarah’s voice was breathless with joy or wonder or awe. Nate wasn’t sure which, but it didn’t matter because now they had something to bargain with.

Sharon Wray


I cannot believe this is happening to me. For the fifth time, I pawed through my suitcase. Please.

How dare she take on that risk alone. He’d begged and pleaded to be the one to go, but she’d left him on the sidelines—helpless.

Jacquie Biggar


A young woman looked over at them with pleading eyes. “Please don’t let it burn down. We have nowhere else to go.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


If Kaitlin or any of the others suggested lunch, I would plead a previous commitment.

Joanne Guidoccio


“I said almost exactly that to the stars every night. I would stand outside wherever I was and beg you to hold on until I could find you.”

Kathryn Jane


Was it her screams? Her tears? Had she pleaded for her life? Had she passed out from the pain?

Marian Lanouette


Then I looked into Jett’s eyes, pleading me to let go and trust him. He stepped close, one arm around my waist and his mouth next to my ear as he whispered, “You can do this.”

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


“Jeremy?” Addie’s voice came out sounding pitiful and pleading. Not what she’d intended.

Marsha West


Isabel stayed quiet, her head lowered while she read their futures in the pine floorboards. “Isabel?” Etienne pleaded. “This is how we save Sarah.”

Sharon Wray


“This looks like the launching of a fine friendship.” A very appealing idea. I went for broke. “How about thanking me over pizza?”

Once I dragged Ben inside the store, I asked the cashier to page the manager. My grip tightened on Ben’s shirt collar as he tried to bolt for the far-blue-yonder.

Vicki Batman


Her cold fingers brushed his aside for a better look. “What happened?” she asked, her breath sending prickles down his back.

Jacquie Biggar


I’m going to ask you something. I saw those scratches on your back yesterday morning. You and I both know they didn’t come from brush in the canyon.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


Kate could tell after several months of his repeated attempts to ask her out that Daniel cared less about keeping his job with Bardach & Associates and more about getting her naked.

Claire Gem


Before I could ask more questions about Dougie, the door opened, and Jake entered, followed by what I could only describe as a handsome Silver Fox.

Joanne Guidoccio


Broughton wanted to ask James to rethink the assignment, but nothing short of a gun to his head would get him to do that. Chain of command.

Kathryn Jane


“Do you have access to all the accounts in the bank?” Edwina asked, twirling a clump of his chest hair around her finger as she snuggled closer to him.

Marian Lanouette


This part of his job was never easy, but crucial time had elapsed, time without an arrest. Now he had to ask the tough questions.

S.A. Taylor
Shutter (work-in-progress)


“You hide the gun in your mother’s house. When someone comes asking about it, you pull it out for all to see.”

Marsha West


“Before I forget, here it is.” Zack handed Nate a Post-it note and went back to mainlining caffeine. “The weapons inventory you asked for.”

She didn’t want him to leave. She didn’t want him to go to that prison hospital somewhere in Maine. She didn’t want to lose him because she loved him.

Sharon Wray


The adoring expression they shared caused pea-green envy to skip through my veins and an ache to pierce my heart. I wanted my own man to love.

Vicki Batman


“What do you want, Mac, an apology in blood? I already explained…”

Jacquie Biggar


He’d had a mini-seizure. Just when he was about to make love to a beautiful woman he wanted so badly . . .

Claire Gem


I didn’t want to anger the grief-stricken constable who was bemoaning the senseless way Sarah had died, alone and exposed to the cool autumn evening.

Joanne Guidoccio


She not only wanted her husband out of the house, she wanted him out of the bank her family owned. Stripped bare; let’s see what woman would want him then?

Marian Lanouette


What he wanted to do was drag her into his arms. Same reaction he’d had when he first met her, but he sure as hell didn’t date anyone involved in a case.
