Book Excerpt

The name on the file folder, J. McKenna, gave me a chill. He was wounded in the line of duty, shot by a bank robbery suspect. Seeing the name reminded me of where I came from and why I was in hiding. I pushed the memories down. I’m not that person anymore. That person doesn’t exist. It wasn’t necessary to touch the locket underneath my sweater as a reminder, but it had become a nervous habit. The locket was the only thing I kept from that life.
The door opened, and Sheila showed my patient in and as my eyes met his, my heart stopped for what seemed like hours. After reading the file, I was afraid of this. How many Jackson McKennas could there be? The hair is shorter, and the face is older, but it’s him, I would know those eyes anywhere. Jackson McKenna. He was my first love and indirectly the reason I have to use a cane to walk farther than across the room.
I cleared my throat and stood, reaching out to shake his hand as I would with any new patient, hoping he didn’t recognize me.
“I’m Dr. Parker. Please make yourself comfortable, Officer McKenna, and we can get started.”
When I realized his right arm was in a sling, I dropped mine back to my side. I picked up my notepad and pen, hoping he didn’t see the way my hands were shaking.
“It’s actually Detective, not Officer.”
He sat on the couch across from me and looked at me with those hazel eyes that have haunted my dreams for ten years, and then he shook his head.
“You remind me of someone I used to know a long time ago.”

Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance

Book Description:
Skylar has rules. He has never strayed from those rules. And yet Destiny has him breaking every last one of them.
Destiny was looking forward to a bit of solitude in the north. She figured surrounding herself with her two besties, at an expensive spa retreat, would beat away the winter blues. That was the plan. Destiny liked plans. But plans don’t always work out the way you want them to.
Skylar never expected to find three ladies trudging through the snow. But after finding them stranded, in the middle of nowhere, during the biggest snow storm of the year, he’s forced to invite Destiny and her friends back to his cabin. Though he tried to ignore what was subtly unravelling between them, he couldn’t discount their attraction. The way Destiny could read into his thoughts and the way his jealousy raged at the thought of his brother taking her to his bed, he knew he had better stake his claim.
But when tragedy strikes, torn from her arms at lightning speed, Skylar’s left to wonder whether he would ever find his destiny.

5 Random Things You Probably Didn’t Know About This Author (and now wish you didn’t) :P

1.       Writing is what I do for fun after the kids go to sleep.  J  I only wish it were my full time job.

2.      People always ask me where I come up with my ideas.  Don’t ask me.  Maybe my other, more outgoing, half can answer that.  I have to warn you, though.  She’s a little crazy.

What she meant to say is that we are watchers.  If we’re quiet, that just means we’re cataloguing an experience for later or perfecting some dialogue.  We make magic with our muses.  We give life to them, so they can do and say things that only happen in your dreams, to captivate and entertain you.  Magic, I tell you.

3.      Ok then.  Back to me.  Chocolate.  Yum.  If there is chocolate hiding in the kitchen, I have a hard time forgetting that fact, and it usually disappears rather quickly.  I’m serious, it’s calling my name as we speak.  It’s like there’s a little devil sitting on my shoulder, cooing in my ear.  You know you want it, Christa.  Go on.  It’s okay.  Just a little taste.

4.      If you asked me what my favourite physical ASSet is, I would have to agree with my husband and say that my ass is out of this world – large – but phenomenal.  ;)

5.      I do have an inner bitch that I save for my close friends and family, but beware of my everyday sass...  that bitch I wear on my sleeve.

I hope that you will give me a try.  I wrote the steamy romance novella, Finding Destiny, to give readers the opportunity to try out my writing style without having to commit to my entire Twisted Trilogy.  I’m hoping, though, after you do read Destiny’s story, that you’ll be even more excited to dive into the complicated life of Abigail Jenkins.  Poor girl.  She’s reduced to living with the devastatingly sexy, Edwin Santora, who happens to be her best-friend and who still has feelings left over from their failed relationship.  Add to that the fact that Edwin doesn’t believe a man and woman can be just friends, and you can imagine where that story will take her.

Right now, to celebrate the release of Finding Destiny, I have dropped the price on book 2 in The Twisted Trilogy.  Both Twisted and Twist & Turn can be purchased for the unbelievably reasonable price of $0.99.  Do me a favour and buy a copy now!!  It’s available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Kobo, and iBooks.

It’s been fun, but it’s time for me to get back to procrastinating on other things.  Hope to see you on my pages.  If you want to chat or tell me how crazy I am, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Wordpress<3 --="" christa="" nbsp="" simpson="" span="">
