Thanks, Melissa, for letting me talk about my new romantic suspense release, For the Love of a Spy: the Scrivener and the Handyman. Here’s the story:
When Maris Graystone, political writer, and Michael Kinder, CIA troubleshooter, meet, sparks fly. Their love affair intensifies against the backdrop of the dramatic world events of 1991. Michael appears and disappears at unpredictable moments, leaving Maris limp and lovelorn. Looking for safe harbor for her emotions and her body, she accepts the advances of a dashing French diplomat.
Torn between the luxury and comfort of Émile and his chateau, and the romance of international intrigue with Michael, she must choose, but who?

In this new excerpt Maris gets an eyeful of the gorgeous Michael.
Excerpt: First Encounter
He straightened and turned toward Maris. For the first time, she got a good look at his face. She backed off, partly to get out of the way and partly because she didn’t want him to see how breathless he made her.
The man was gorgeous! His face—well, a romance writer would describe it as craggy, rough-hewn, or maybe lived-in. Deep, deep blue eyes under a tousled thatch of ebony hair, his skin tanned and tight over a strong nose and high cheekbones. His mouth, although currently set in a thin, angry line, promised to be sensual and full.
She attempted, with little success, to keep her eyes from traveling down his barrel chest to his hands. Quite delicate for such a big man, the fingers long and slim. She looked up quickly and found him observing her, his face impassive. He watched as she backed away blushing, then without a word returned to his work.
