Hot as Sin

Finally my book about the ice-skating nun and the ex-navy SEAL is here! Hope you enjoy my brand of HOT AS SIN suspense. A protected witness, Emily Quinn needs a hero...and quick! The security of her safe house has been breached, and a U.S. Marshal has been shot while protecting her...

Patrick paused to catch his breath and closed his eyes for a second. "The dog tag on my key chain...take it to Christian Gabriel. He owes me. Tell him I said to make you disappear."

"I'm not going anywhere except for help." She stretched to reach the afghan on the back of the couch to keep him warm.

"There is no help." His tone was final. "Can't trust-"

"You are not going to die on me, Patrick," Emily interrupted, fighting to keep the fear out of her voice. "I won't let you. You hear?"

"Shut up and listen," he hissed. "Last Call-a bar...Rock Falls. In Washington state." He struggled. "Find Gabe. Christian...Gabriel. Ex-SEAL, retired, owes me. You got it?"

"I've got it." She took a deep shuddering breath to steady herself. He was close to dying. "Washington. Rock Falls. Last Call. Christian Gabriel."

"Best shot. Targets, pool, people-" He coughed again, the sound ominous. "Emily?"

"I'm here. I'm listening." She held both of his hands, trying to rub the cold out of them, trying to rub life back into his body somehow. "I'm here."

"Don't tell...the Archangel I caught a bullet. Thinks I'm...invincible."

"I won't say a word," she promised.

"Emily."

"Yes?"

"Shoot him." His breathing was raspy, as if he was trying to suck in air but not getting any oxygen.

Slowly Emily realized what Patrick meant. Her gaze flew to the gunman who lay sprawled at the foot of the stairs. The man wore a bullet proof vest; he was only stunned by the fall. If she didn't kill him, he'd come after her and try again.

"Shoot...him."

Emily picked up the gun.
