Prohibition Era Chicago
She's worked too hard to be run out of town...
Jessica Harlan spends her nights as The Phoenix, the owner
of the most popular speakeasy in town. Her days are spent
running her respectable butcher shop and dodging prohibition
agents and rival club owners who all want to put her out of
He's worked too hard to let his heart get in the way...
When the opportunity arises to go undercover for the Feds to
catch The Phoenix, Gumshoe Anthony Solomon jumps on it. But
he never suspected the notorious rumrunner would be a dame -
or that he'd be so drawn to the feisty little minx.
They play a dangerous game of cat and mouse, knowing they
can't trust the other, but unable to walk away. While their
hearts dodge the crossfire, the mobsters raise the stakes,
and even The Phoenix may not rise again.

Re: Romancing the Rumrunner
I agree with your definition of a hero. Can't wait to read your latest book.

I think that you pretty much have the qualities down pat,
but I would add that the Hero doesn't have to be drop dead
Handsome!! I prefer my Hero to look like your everyday guy,
when it comes to looks. If you make him too Handsome, then
it seems to take a little bit away from the actual story,
and turn it into more of a fairy tale!! I love the cover of
your latest book, and am looking forward to reading your
latest books!! Congratulations!!

My idea of a hero is simply someone who steps up when they're
needed. Sounds like a marvelous read. I enjoy Western romantic

All of the above of course! We all
have our preferences but I think you
nailed it. Mine have to have a soft
spot as well, be smart, be charming,
have a redeeming quality, and
perhaps sexy but in their own unique

I love western romance books very much and will enjoy reading yours. I have to write your book titles down and look for them. Your book covers are fabulous and I'm happy to have found a new author today of my favorite reading genre!

You have summarized everything about a hunky hero. Those qualities exist in cowboys, law enforcement, military and even with CEOs.

Thanks so much everyone! And just a quick note, my publisher
has recently bundled my Western trilogy, the Blood Blade
Sisters Series (the book we are giving away is the first
book in that series). So you can now get all three books for
the price of two! My new book, Romancing the Rumrunner, is
set in the 1920's and was an absolute blast to write. Such a
fun time period!

Love your books!
(Diane Teunessen 11:30pm June 12, 2014)
I like all of your qualities. Number one is my favorite. There is something about a hero with a tortured soul. It just makes you want to rescue them, give them a hug, soothe their soul and make everything better.
