It's Here!

"Memphis ain't a bad town, for them that like city life." ~William Faulkner

Here's my new cover!!

One Night in Memphis releases this July, and I'm so excited for this was actually the first "24 hour" novel I wrote, before One Night in Boston. I love the characters, and I amped up the action/suspense in this one too, in the form of a vengeful ex-boyfriend. Here's the (unedited) blurb:

What if a woman, tired of broken hearts and bad choices, traveled a thousand miles to the heart of Memphis, Tennessee, and spent a night forgetting her past in the blues clubs of Beale Street? What if a man who lost his wife to cancer ventured to Beale Street's social scene for the first time in over a year? And what if they met and realized love was still possible for them both?

Dakota James and Ethan Meriweather have both given up on finding happiness in a relationship. When they meet in downtown Memphis, at a crowded nightclub, neither has romance on the brain. But as the evening unfolds, and small talk turns to the stuff of hopes, dreams, and shared loss, a kinship grows that surprises them.

Before the night is over, though, Dakota's past will catch up with her in the form of a violent ex-boyfriend. As dawn approaches, and tragedy threatens to tear Dakota and Ethan apart, both will have to make a decision that could change their lives forever. Is new love worth putting your life on the line for someone you've just met?

What do you think??
