I'm happy to welcome to the blog my good friend,
who is celebrating her second new release in a month! Take it away, Joya...
Laura, thanks so much for hosting me on your blog today to share the book trailer for my debut romantic suspense novel, Beneath the Surface. After months of spending time with my hero and heroine while I wrote the book, it was really fun to help them come to life through pictures and music in this trailer.
Brooke and Garrett meet under stressful conditions. Brooke’s best friend’s boat explodes, injuring her, and they find out it wasn’t an accident. Brooke, an amputee and an underwater archaeologist, is not leaving until she finds the person who hurt her friend. Garrett is a Florida policeman, overprotective of everyone around him. Brooke’s need for independence clashes with Garrett’s need to protect. But as the killer lurks and claims more victims, Brooke and Garrett must put aside their differences and their growing feelings for each other to stop the madman.
Thanks very much for having me today. Hope you enjoy the trailer! J
She’s fighting to stay independent—he’s determined to protect her no matter what…
Brooke Richards survived the earthquake that took her parents and most of her leg, but she needs time to regroup. A trip to Florida for a state-of-the-art prosthesis and to visit her best friend Linda seems ideal. But the trip turns traumatic when Brooke witnesses Linda’s boat disintegrating in a fiery explosion.
Police officer Garrett Ciavello believes the blast was intentionally set to hide something Linda found on a dive. When Brooke offers her expertise in underwater archeology, Garrett accepts her help with the investigation. But since his fiancée’s death years ago, Garrett has become overprotective, and as they are drawn to each other, Garrett realizes he will risk anything to keep Brooke safe.
Brooke is fiercely independent. Garrett is fiercely protective. Will they heal each other’s wound and find a killer…before it’s too late?
Excerpt from Beneath the Surface:
For the first time since the accident, Brooke forgot about her leg. Forgot about all she’d lost and focused on the way Garrett made her feel.She knew she needed to stop him. She should find a way to resist the temptation to be with him. But for a few minutes, she could enjoy the taste of him, the feel of him, couldn’t she?He dropped his hands to her waist and softened the kiss before trailing a line of kisses down her neck. A weak cry slipped from her mouth. “Garrett,” she whispered.She should stop this now before it got any more intense.He lifted her chin and forced her to meet his brown eyes, smoky with desire. Heat spiraled to her middle and she caught a whiff of his sawdust scent.“I…I can walk you back to your own room before I head to mine.” His voice broke as he whispered.She swallowed hard. She couldn’t do this right now with him. Too many obstacles stood in their way. But as she looked in his somber eyes, she realized none of those complications were bigger than her need for Garrett.“Let’s go to your room,” she said, her voice shaking. She moved her hands inside his shirt and ran them over his tight abs and chest. Heat soared through her body at the feel of him. “Together…”
