Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
Flat-out fabulous, this novel is one-of-a-kind. Cruciger's original, funny voice is cool and wise. The deftly plotted debut from RT's former Path to Publishing columnist features Tara, a retired computer programmer living in Key Largo, Florida.
Sexy romance, seamless supernatural elements and a comic supporting cast make Tara's crazy days in paradise feel real. And maybe they are--a Keys resident herself, Cruciger gets the details of the tropical setting and everything else just right.
Tara tends an ocean-side bar and runs RevengeGifts.com, a popular Internet store that sells several types of revenge trinkets, including pillows stuffed with cat hair for the allergic. Life is simple, until someone wants her dead. And then someone else wants to get closer than her comfort level allows. Tara's a sarcastic, tough loner with a huge heart, but she's sweet deep inside. She skillfully deflects affection with snide humor. It'll take a Mack truck to drive through her armor and, when one special guy tries, souls collide and sparks fly.
