I was tagged by Teri Thackston along with six other authors. My challenge is to go to page 7 of my current work in progress and post seven lines. When I’m done posting, I get to tag seven other authors to do the same and tag 7 more authors.
Shades of Deception Blurb:
Tessa Marshall wanted a quiet weekend getaway to Mexico with friends. Her vacation turns terrifying when she’s dragged out of her car in the middle of the night. She wakes up to find herself bound on the floor of a cartel safe-house, having to account for her part in a double-cross.
Kris spent years building contacts within Mexico’s underworld. Days before a meeting with cartels leaders he finds Tessa, a woman that captivated him in a chance encounter, about to face the consequences of a failed escape. He claims her for himself, but whether she’s an innocent bystander or the master mind behind the theft of millions in cartel merchandise remains to be seen.
In the final hours of the end game, Kris must choose his loyalties. Are they with the cartel, with Tessa, or with himself?
And now for the excerpt from Shades of Deception:
Tessa shifted with the utmost care, ready to discover a broken bone somewhere in her battered body. Even that would be preferable to ending up beside a lonely road in Monterrey, dead.
Brake lights shone bright and fuzzy along the highway above. Hopefully, Heather’s new friends, the ones she wanted to follow to “just one more club”, would call for help.
Why had she let Heather take the keys? She should’ve ignored her whining and driven to the hotel.
Headlights illuminated the car’s interior.
Watch for Shades of Deception late Summer 2012.
