CATCHING THE BAD GUY by Marie Astor:
“So, how did it go?” Dennis looked at Janet across the table. They were having lunch in a pub several blocks away from the office. Dennis had specifically chosen a table that was facing the door to survey any new arrivals.
“I think he bought it.”
“Told you so. Aren’t you glad that you listened to me?”
“I’ll be even gladder when we nail the bastard.”
“Boy, I wouldn’t want to cross you, Janet. So, what does the boss want you to do?”
“Oh, nothing other than spy on your every move and report to him immediately any suspicious activity.”
“Sounds like you’re going to have your hands full.”
“Oh, and he also mentioned that he might want to have drinks sometime.”
“Oh?” Dennis’s eyebrows rose. “Look, Janet, I wouldn’t want you to do anything that you’re not comfortable with.”
“Relax, Dennis. I’m a big girl. I can handle Alex,” Janet’s voice was playful, but inside she was sizzling with delight at Dennis’s reaction. The man was definitely jealous.
“I just meant that I wouldn’t want thing to get too far out of hand.”
“They won’t. I wonder if I’m the only one Alex asked to spy on you. I wonder if he spoke with Laskin at all. Do you think we should ask him?”
“Oh, I don’t think we should. He might get overexcited. He’s great at muckraking in Excel spreadsheets, but when it comes to undercover work he can’t handle the stress. He might blab us out to Alex.”
“This is hardly undercover work, Dennis.” Janet shook her head. Male vanity never ceased to amaze her. It was not enough for Dennis to know that he was far better looking and charming that Laskin, he had to stomp on the poor chap every time he got the chance.
“Sure it is. It’s internal undercover work,” Dennis retorted.
“I just thought it might be nice to have Laskin on board, but suit yourself.”
“I’m not saying that it’s a bad idea, but I think it’s too early for that, that’s all.”
CHRISTMAS CAPTIVE by Rebecca York:
A sense of urgency sent Hannah running down the hall. She considered stopping at other doors, but she let her intuition guide her as she sped past the elevator and then down into the section that must mark the twenty-first century.
She was breathing hard when she finally stopped at the door for the current year. Was he there? Or was she making all this up?
She listened for a long moment. Again she heard Christmas music, carols, not one of the popular songs that had invaded the holiday.
As O Holy Night began to play, she turned the knob, pushed the door open and stepped into the room. For a moment she fought a surge of disappointment. She was in Jordan’s bedroom—back where she’d started. Or was it?
The large four-poster was there—with a different spread. But the screen and the hospital bed were missing. And in the shadows by the fireplace, she saw a man standing very still, watching her with unnerving intensity. She dragged in a sharp breath. It was him.
This was the moment that she had been waiting for, and a surge of relief swept through her. She’d come here to make contact with him, and finally it was happening.
He tipped his head to the side, staring at her with an expression she couldn’t read. The last time she’d seen him, he’d been wearing a hospital gown. But like hers, his outfit had changed significantly. Now he was dressed in dark slacks, an open sports coat, and a white dress shirt.
His brow wrinkled as he looked at her. “Do I know you?”
“I’m Hannah Andrews,” she said, waiting to see if the name registered.
Instead of showing any sign of recognition, he asked, “And what are you doing here?”
“I’m your nurse.”
He snorted and waved his arm impatiently. “Oh come on. I don’t need a nurse.”
As she took a step into the room and closed the door behind her, he came out of the shadows. He looked fit and tanned, his hair mussed, the way he had looked in the pictures she’d seen—not like the man lying unconscious on the bed. But when she saw what was in his hand, she gasped.
He was holding a gun, and he raised it, pointing it toward her.
“Don’t,” she whispered. Could he hurt her here? She didn’t want to take the chance of finding out.
“Who are you really?” he demanded.
“Your nurse,” she said again.
“Something strange is going on. Something I don’t understand, but I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” he said in a hard voice.
Her mouth was so dry she could hardly speak, but she managed to say, “Yes, something’s going on.” She slowly raised her hand. “Please, put the gun down.”
“Not until you answer some relevant questions. And I’ll decide whether they sent you to feed me some story.”
Meet the Heroines of Dangerous Attraction
We all love a strong heroine who gets the guy in the end. Tell us about the heroines of the books featured in the Dangerous Attraction Boxed Set.
Lori Ryan: When I sat down to create Kelly Bradley, the heroine in Legal Ease, I knew I wanted a strong woman. I also wanted to do a twist on an old theme/ In Legal Ease, Jack Sutton needs a wife and Kelly needs to pay for law school. Rather than your typical marriage-of-convenience book where the man proposes a fake marriage to the woman, Kelly takes the bull by the horns and wrangles tuition out of Jack in exchange for marrying him. I love the scene where she waltzes into his office and announces herself as Jack’s fiancé while slipping him a note proposing the arrangement. Then, of course, I slipped in some suspense and a few twists and things heated up. Throughout it, Kelly struggles at times with her confidence, but she doesn’t let that stop her. She plows ahead with what she wants. She’s one of my favorite heroines!
Marie Astor: Janet Maple is the heroine of Catching the Bad Guy, book two of the Janet Maple Series. I enjoyed writing Janet's character because when she's in a pickle, she stands her ground. She has insecurities, but she knows how to overcome them to get what she wants, and most importantly she knows how to get her man.
Kaylea Cross: Khalia Patterson has gone through a lot of emotional trauma, and yet she still has the guts to put her fears aside and put herself at risk to do what’s right. She’s smart, motivated and has a strong moral compass to guide her. I just love the strength she shows in the face of extreme adversity!
Jill Sanders: Ann has been in journalism long enough to know when someone is full of himself. She is head strong and doesn't see the trouble she's put her and her team in until it's too late. She grew up a daddy's girl, but can deliver a round house kick to save herself. She doesn't complain as they hike through the jungles in Brazil. She knows what she wants, and when she finally gets her hands on Ethan, she knows she doesn't want to let him go.
Dana Marton: Ashley Price is a single mom whose life is falling apart. A child died while in her care, guilt and depression eating her alive. She is practically a shut in, unable to raise even her own daughter. She deals with severe panic attacks. And that’s before she finds a man buried alive on her land and gets accused of being in league with a serial killer.
Debra Burroughs: I was starting to write Three Days in Seattle when my son was about to get married in Seattle. My heroine, Kate McAllister, is loosely based on my new daughter-in-law. She’s tall and beautiful, but she’s also smart, strong, and fiercely independent. She won’t run from a challenge and she would do anything for the people she loves.
Rebecca York: Hannah Andrews, the heroine of CHRISTMAS CAPTIVE, is a nurse. Although she’s never done undercover work before, she’s recruited by Frank Decorah, who owns Decorah Security, to find out who tried to kill Jordan Campbell. Jordan’s in coma after a boating accident and can’t wake up. Frank has investigated Hannah’s background and knows she has the psychic ability to communicate with an unconscious patient. If she can get into Jordan’s coma dream, perhaps she can bring him back to the real world. Hannah had a normal childhood with strict but loving parents. It was only after she went to nursing school and began working with patients that she discovered she could communicate with the ones who were unconscious. When she was bombarded by impressions from too many patients at once, she had to quit her hospital job and go into private duty nursing. After she accepts Frank Decorah’s job offer, she wonders if she has the skill and the resolve to pull off this dangerous assignment.
Patricia Rosemoor: Keelin McKenna "dreams" through others eyes. She harbors a guilty secret -- the time she didn't act when she "saw" someone in trouble ended in tragedy. So when she realizes she is seeing through the eyes of a runaway teenager in trouble, she'll do anything to help save her, no matter that she has to convince Tyler Leighton she's no con woman.
Toni Anderson: Dr. Axelle Dehn is a snow leopard biologist based in Montana but working in some of the most remote places on earth. She’s the daughter of a high-level diplomat and her mother was killed in an embassy bombing in Rabat when she was a little girl. Since the day she was trapped in the rubble of that building, Axelle has had a phobia of caves, which is exactly where she finds herself during the course of this story. She’s a very strong, very focused individual who will do anything to protect her cats--but the hero still manages to save her a time or two. I love their dynamic!
