There’s no best-by date for revenge.

Wealthy and beautiful Shay Lassiter runs a prestigious foundation, but her connections and resources were worthless when her fiancĂ© tried to murder her. Now, she’s guarding her heart and using her knack for reading people’s intentions – both good and evil – to guide her. But when the foundation’s clients start dying, she must turn to the new man in her life…one who’s giving her mixed signals.

Computer specialist and ex-cop Roman Chandler has a secret. It involves Shay and could ruin the fragile relationship he’s building with her. Though he can’t tell her the truth, he needs to convince her to trust him. He fears that whoever is behind this is about to turn his vengeance on Shay…

And vengeance can be deadly.

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains adult sexual situations and/or adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.
Under Roman's midnight blue gaze, Shay's stomach churned with unanswered questions and delight. Of course he'd seen pictures of her. A quick Google search would have offered many pages to study. She wanted to take a longer look at his energy, but thought she’d better save her strength for when a deeper reading might be needed.

A strange sound had her turning to face Bernice.

Bernice opened her mouth to speak when she suddenly stopped, an odd look on her face. Her breath sucked in so loudly, Shay leaned closer in concern. "Bernice? What's the matter?"


Shay studied her old friend, but Bernice's face had turned ashen, her eyes locked on something behind Shay’s shoulder. Shay spun around, but there didn't appear to be anything or anyone there. In fact, the only thing behind her was a wall. A blank wall.

"Bernice, talk to me. You're scaring me."

Bernice's breathing appeared halted, her features frozen.

Shay leaned closer.

Jesus, she must be having a stroke. "We'll get someone here to help you. Just please tell me what's wrong."

Bernice's mouth worked. Still no sound came out.

Roman bent to peer into Bernice's face. "I'll get help." Roman took off.

Shay didn't bother to watch him go, her gaze was locked on poor Bernice. As Shay raised her hand to call for help, her arm was grabbed. She stared, surprised to see Bernice's bronzed nails cutting into her soft skin.

"Bernice?" Shay peered inside her friend's dark, blind eyes. "Hang on. Help is coming."

Somewhere behind her, she could hear rapidly approaching footsteps. Thank God.

Shay stared into Bernice's blank, black and bottomless eyes, and Bernice stared back. Shay's heart squeezed in fear. "Bernice, damn it, are you in there? Please answer me."

Shay willed Bernice's eyes to return to normal. Willed them to blink. To move. To do something.

Then something happened. Inside, deep inside, Bernice blinked. A clear movement that Shay could see and understand.

Except for one thing.

On the surface, Bernice's eyelids never moved.


Today, we welcome Dale Mayer to Musings and Ramblings. Let's all give her a big Geeky welcome!

I have some questions for you that are writer specific as well as some fun stuff so that we can really get to know the real you. *grin* Plus we will finish things off with round of Think Fast. Ready to begin?

Writing Specific
1. Tell us something about yourself that's not in your bio.
I love cooking and baking! And eating of course. ☺
2. What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Revise! I write a lot so that means I have to revise a lot. Lol.
3. How did you choose the genres you write in?
I don't choose – they choose me. My ideas are so strong I pretty have to write the story.
4. Is there any particular author or book that has influenced you or your writing?
I've always been a big fan of Elizabeth Lowell, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Catherine Coulter.
5. What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
That’s a good question. I think it would have to be criticisms on my books not engaging the reader. The best – that's also tough as I have received tons of wonderful compliments. Some people have said – I completely absorb them into the story and they lose all awareness of what's going on around them. Others have said they want to be my characters, live my characters' lives, become one with my stories. Lol.
Fun Stuff
6. If you could have dinner with anyone, past or present, fictional or real, who would it be and why?
Wow – interesting question. I'd probably go with Leonardo Da Vinci.
7. You are going to be stranded on a deserted island and bring 3 luxury items. What would they be?
Solar panel, battery charger and laptop!
8. Pick two celebrities to be your parents. Who are they and why?
Tom Clancy and Margaret Atwood – can you imagine the writing genes I'd have started with!?!
9. What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
Cheese, olives, white wine and tons of fresh veggies.
10. If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
A psychotic writer who didn't know when to stop!
Think Fast
Summer or Winter? Winter
Coffee or Tea? Coffee all the way
Cake or Pie? Pie – since when is that a choice!
Car or Truck? Car – now. Had a truck for years.
Print or Electronic? PRINT!!! ☺
