I’m a fan of the TV show Scandal. Ever watched it? If you love secret government entities, conspiracy theories, political scandals, and star-crossed lovers, this show is for you.
And let’s not forget the copious amounts of wine they consume every week. One day last month, I was catching up on all the episodes in a wanton Scandal marathon, and one of my sons kept bopping in and out, only catching bits and pieces. His comment: “they sure drink a lot of wine on this show.” Being in love with the president – a man you can never have a real relationship with - and discovering your father was responsible for the death of your mother, who’s really not dead…well, watch the show and you’ll understand the need for alcohol! :)
The fabulous Adrienne Giordano and I have co-written the first book in a new romantic suspense series. If you like Scandal, you’ll love STEALING JUSTICE. Think of it as a cross between the political intrigue of Scandal and the FBI cases of Criminal Minds.
Boy, was it fun for me to pit my hot FBI hero, Justice “Grey” Greystone, against Adrienne’s super sexy heroine, Sydney Banfield, in the hunt for a serial killer who believes he’s above the law. Grey and Syd are diametric opposites, but when they come together – major fireworks! Here’s the blurb:
If you love Scandal, you’ll love Stealing Justice…
Justice “Grey” Greystone was fired from the FBI for insubordination. Now the FBI wants him to use his renegade skills to take down a serial killer who’s above the law. To trap the Lion, Grey will need to send the perfect woman undercover.
Sydney Banfield runs a women’s shelter and bends the law daily to help victims of abuse escape their painful lives. Three of the women she’s recruited for government jobs have become victims of the Lion. If Syd has her way, the vicious killer will never touch another woman again.
Grey and Sydney set a trap—with Sydney as the sexy bait—but the Lion adds a complex twist to his homicidal agenda. With Sydney’s life on the line, Grey must race against the clock to catch a killer who’s as unstoppable as he is evil.
There’s corruption, political intrigue, and cupcakes. Oh, and there’s wine, of course!
