I don’t know if it’s my sex, what my parents taught me or my age (we’re not going there!) but for some reason, it’s much easier to crow about a friends’ books than it is my own. So I’m going to do it!
I have two friends with books coming out this month! I’m so thrilled, I’m tap dancing on my rooftop.
The first one coming out is LAST HOPE ALASKA, by Linda Trout. In fact, I think it’s available now! (Woohoo!)
Here’s a little about the book from Amazon–
Emily Redfern’s ex-fiancé learned to kill on the back streets of New York. Now, she is his target. Broke, exhausted, and a step ahead of the man she once loved, she clings to one last hope: the wilds of Alaska. The quiet safety of her hide-a-way becomes addictive as she grows to care for the man who offers her refuge.
Released from prison after a wrongful conviction, native Alaskan Sam Tarkington is determined to regain his business, repair his reputation, and rebuild his life. But when he meets a desperate and vulnerable woman, guarding secrets of her own, she tugs at his heart. She’s a distraction he can’t afford. Sam must choose Emily or achieving his dreams. Like Emily’s life, the peacefulness of the wilderness is an illusion as danger lurks in the distance.
Does Sam hold the key to her survival or will her past cost them everything?
Alaska is one of Linda’s favorite places to vacation, so her descriptions are bone chillingly accurate. (Yes, I’ve read most of this book. Linda’s one of my favorite critique partners.)
