Hi, I’m so glad to be here with you on Fresh Fiction. I’m really excited to
tell you a little about my new release GRAY MATTER: Deep Six
Security Book 5, but first let me tell you a little about myself.
I write edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense stories with heat, heart and humor.
If one of my books doesn’t keep you up all night, I haven’t done my job. I also
write contemporary westerns, but they all include a mystery or suspense element too.
My imperfect heroes are on the alpha side, gruff, overprotective and set in
their ways, so sometimes they come off a little rough. But never fear, as in
real life, there is always a sassy heroine waiting in the wings to meet and
redeem them. My job is to throw her into his path and turn the wheel over to
them to let them tell me their story.
Because I like to keep my suspense plots relatable to the reader, some of the
topics I tackle in my books are true-to-life, but not the pretty side. Together,
though, my hero and heroine fight a good fight against evil, survive those
perils, and find lasting love in the process. You can always count on a
happily-ever-after when you reach the end of my books, but you’ll have a wild
ride getting there as you live out the story with my characters. In Gray
Matter, Mickie and Gray put us in a ditch twice, but they took me on one of the
wildest rides yet. They truly let me unleash my humorous side too, which I loved.
Michaela Girabaldi is an east coast Italian with plenty of attitude from a
family with mob ties. She worked for her uncle for ten years as his office
manager, but wasn’t included in his business dealings. That proves detrimental
when her uncle is whacked, mob money comes up missing and they are looking to
her to answer for it.
Grayson Jennings is former FBI and now works as a forensic accountant for Deep
Six Security. He is staid, likes his boring, but peaceful life and has sworn
off women. After his last girlfriend almost put him in jail, he just didn’t
trust the fairer sex or his instincts.
But then Mickie is hired as the office manager for their new east coast office,
and the mafia princess strolls into his life in red high heels, carrying enough
dirty laundry to last them both a lifetime—in prison. Gray suspects the
sexy-as-sin woman is guilty as hell, but he is strong-armed into trying to help
her solve her problems.
I had to do a lot of really interesting research for this book. Money
laundering, gang and mob presence in the US, and Italian recipes, but my
favorite was homeopathic massage oil recipes to describe Mickie’s Nonna’s Magic
Massage Oil. I’ll be giving out the recipe I found in my newsletter after the
book releases, as well as a bonus chapter to GRAY MATTER. Here’s where

Can Gray help his new office manager clean her dirty laundry? Or will the
mafia princess hang him out to dry?
Since leaving the FBI Grayson Jennings has found peace in his life with his
job as a forensic accountant with Deep Six Security and he treasures it. It
remains that way until Michaela Girabaldi is hired as the new office manager for
their east coast office.
The smart-mouthed Jersey girl strolls into the office in red high heels with
her bags packed with enough dirty laundry to last them both a lifetime. In
Prison. Her dirtiest laundry is the 1.2 million dollars she insists she didn't
steal from the mob and Gray is wrangled into helping her find it.
Well, this was not Gray's first rodeo with a beautiful criminal and he had
the bruises to prove it. He was not going to blindly trust a woman ever again,
especially one suspected of murder and many other nasty crimes. He would help
her, but he wouldn't be getting into bed with the mafia princess or falling for
her or her games.
Mickie says only her cousin knows where the loot is located, so Gray sets out
to find her. To do that, he'll have to follow the money, but he is afraid at the
end of that trail he'll find a lot more than he bargained for, because had a
feeling the sexy-as-sin woman was guilty as hell.
But will he find the money before the mob finds Mickie? Or will she distract
him with her Nonna's Magic Massage Oil and fritattas at the beach house where
they're hiding out and
get them both killed?
