One month from today, my new romantic suspense, IN THE SHADOW OF MALICE,  will be released to the world. For the next four weeks, I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite moments about this wonderful love story. There will be a give-away at the end of this post so read on.

I can't wait for you to meet my hero, Adam Blake, my heroine, Calista Martin, and Adam's four year old daughter, adorable Anna Blake. If you would like a peak at my inspiration for these wonderful characters, check out my Pinterest Board for the story. You can find it here:

My big reveal today is my new cover! As an author, there isn't anything more exciting than the day when your publisher sends you an email with the words, New Cover in the subject line. It is a moment when I hold my breath, click open, and practically bounce out of my skin waiting to see what the art department created. Well, Crimson Romance's art department did it again and gave me a cover I just love. 

So without without further adieu, or in my case, rambling, here is my new cover for IN THE SHADOW OF MALICE!

Blurb for In the Shadow of Malice:

Adam Blake, ex-CIA operative, has gone to great lengths to keep his identity a secret from his maternal grandfather, who controls the most brutal crime syndicate in Eastern Europe. The moment he lets his guard down, the unthinkable happens and his best friend, the mother of his child, is tortured and murdered. To protect his daughter, he must seek the help of his father’s family—who has no idea of his existence. What Adam could have never foreseen is the unusual attachment between his daughter and her most unlikely protector. 

After months of living in an emotional vacuum after her roommate’s murder [Hanna Tu from In the Shadow of Greed], Calista Martin takes a chance and befriends a handsome regular at the diner. What is supposed to be just a ride home hurls her headlong into Adam’s world of murder and revenge. To add to an already explosive situation, Adam’s traumatized little girl refuses to release her hold on Calista. Knowing what it’s like to lose a loved one, Calista insists on staying with Adam to protect Anna. 

After Calista risks her life to protect Anna, Adam begins to see the waitress from the diner in a different light. But the Vasnev threat is heating up and Calista, while willing to help him, really doesn’t trust him. Can Adam find a way to eliminate his enemies to become the father Anna deserves and the man Calista needs—or will he fail again, taking his future out of his hands forever?

Now for the GIVE-AWAY.[Insert the roar of a crowd here hehhehe]
