Author's Message

We've all done it. We meet some rich, spoiled woman and think, well, someday she's going to get what's coming to her. Now you get to read about one such woman getting exactly what she deserves in my latest romantic suspense/paranormal, Shades Of Heaven.

If you've read my April book, On the Way to Heaven, you'll know exactly who I'm talking about. Chris is killed in a car accident and gets a second chance, but it's in the body of another woman-Hallie DiBarto. Poor Chris has to untangle the mess Hallie left her, including a gem theft, an obsessed lover, and a husband who can't wait to divorce her. When I wrote that first book, I'd planned to make Hallie a witch, but something happened along the way. I discovered that Hallie had an unloving childhood and a terrible role model to learn from. I knew I had to give Hallie a second chance-and it was going to be a doozy!

Hallie was one of those tall, gorgeous blonds you love to hate. She suffers a cerebral hemorrhage, and when given a second chance, it's in another woman's life.

At first Hallie is mortified to find herself in the body of Marti May West, a waitress in a nowhere Florida town -- and pregnant no less! She can't understand why her husband Jesse James West can warm her soul -- he's not her type. And he was forced into this new marriage -- after the baby is born they'll go their separate ways. But the divorce doesn't seem as simple as it once did when they face the dangers of discovering who killed the real Marti.

Here's a sneak peek:

"I know a way to tell if you're Marti or not. It's an instinctual kind of thing. Are you willing to do it?"

"Do what?"

"Uh uh, can't tell you. You'll just have to go along with it. That is, if you want me to believe your story."

She narrowed her eyes at him, weighing the sanity of it. What could it be? Probably taking her to the place Marti had been attacked to see if she had any reaction.

"Fine, do what you have to."

As Marti prepared for him to turn the truck around, he leaned forward and kissed her, pressing her against the window. His mouth engulfed hers, his tongue instantly thrusting inside her mouth. For a moment, she felt dizzy, and her stomach did flip-flops. As her mind told her hands to push him away, her mouth became independent, responding to him in that instinctual way he had spoken of. Why was he kissing her like this? her mind asked. Who cares? her body answered.
