Coming Soon from Cobblestone Press: Fan Mail by aubreyleatherwood

So I got some news that put me over the freakin’ moon this week. First, I realize that this news is a bit late and it defies all reason that I didn’t know this sooner, but Model Lover  was the March 2010 bestseller for Cobblestone Press. Yay! Awesome. Yay!

Second spell of deliciously delightful news is that my good pals at  Cobblestone are also going to publish my follow up to Model Lover, Fan Mail. Yes, yes, yes. Alicia Langerud and Tommy Touhy who were just kids in the first story are all grown up and about to embark on a suspenseful, dark, and sensual journey in this thriller.

Here’s a peek at it:

In this follow up to Model Lover, supermodel Alicia Langerud and Detective Tommy Touhy have unfinished business. Their breakup six months ago was ugly, nasty, and fodder for gossips and speculators worldwide. Everyone wants to know what the Bad Boy did to break America’s sweetheart’s heart. Only they know the truth behind what happened that night… and one reporter who holds their livelihoods in his hands. Even worse. Alicia has started receiving disturbing messages from a stalker, a stalker hell-bent on curing her of her “heart disease.” Frightened for her life, Alicia must rely on the man who once drove her away to save her life.

Unedited Excerpt:

Her thoughts were a jumble, her body numb. She could only reach behind her and push the door closed. No one could see inside. No one could see this.

A bang at her door made Alicia jump. Though she had no memory of retrieving it or making a call on it, her cell phone clattered out of her lap onto the floor. She blinked. How long had she been sitting there? Another bang and a familiar voice called, “Alicia! Alicia, are you hurt? Alicia, if you dont answer, I’m going to break the door down!”

She wanted to tell him that it was open, but she couldn’t. Her mouth wouldn’t work, her throat wouldn’t work, her tongue seemed stuck to the roof of her mouth. But she heard the door knob jiggle and she turned to see him step inside. His key was in the knob. Apparently, they both had forgotten he still had one.

“What the h–” He went silent and dread choked the air between them.

He dropped to his knees beside her and turned her face around so that they were eye to eye. “Are you okay?”

She blinked.

He patted her cheek lightly, “Alicia, baby, are you okay?” He checked her over by gently running his hands over her skin.

She was sure she nodded.

“Did you see him?”

She murmured something unintelligible.

“The man who did this, did you see him?”

She shook her head and a shudder rippled through her body.

“Did you check through the rest of the house? Did you see if he, he–“

Her eyes watered and tears dotted her cheeks and she felt absurd. She had cried more in the past twenty-four hours than she had when shed gone through puberty. “No.”

Tommy nodded then rose. He pulled a handgun from the holster under his leather jacket then slowly, carefully made his way deeper into the apartment. Alicia watched him disappear into her kitchen. He came out again, then rounded a corner and disappeared again into her hallway. In ten minutes, he came back and dropped to her side, his eyes studying the walls. He ran a hand over his face and looked truly shaken. She hadn’t seen him drained of color and sickened this way since his mother died. Finally, he told her, “I believe he was long gone before you got home. From the looks of it, you haven’t been here yourself for a couple of days. You were in Borneo, right?”

Because the possibility that the perpetrator had still been in her apartment when she arrived had not occurred to her, the knowledge that he was gone only inspired a second bout of alarm. Her eyes widened and she began to shake.

“He’s gone, baby,” Tommy soothed her and pulled her into his embrace. “He’s gone and I’m here and you know I’ll never let anyone hurt you. You know I’ll always keep you safe.”

Alicia clutched him close, desperately. And he held her just as hard, his lips pressing to her brow and into her hair. In his arms, she did feel safe, and she did believe that he could always keep her safe.

If he wanted to.

The problem was Tommy didn’t want to.

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
hard on. Any tips?

Comment by mass money traffic machine reviewed

Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

With four kids he was heading in the wrong
direction. There are a ton of healthy dog treats on the
market now that are made just for his special digestive system, not to mention
your love and devotion is what your dog really craves. It’s even more challenging if you happen to still be in love with your ex.

There are vaccines available for both chickenpox and shingles.
If this is someone that you know or with which you’ll have multiple interactions, this is a lot easier.
Some males complain that they can not execute perfectly with their wives but can
execute very well with other girls.
