Born in the snow, raised in the dust, and thrilled about blood. Mary Matuskey is an intense novelist who draws inspiration from her life of health and family struggles, and blends them with her love of music, romance, oceans and suspenseful movies. Mary grew up in Lower Michigan; severe asthma kept her indoors way too often for a child. Daydreaming while most kids played tirelessly outside kept her imagination well-nurtured. Her family of seven was forced to uproot to a drier climate in order to keep her health less combative, and it was the Arizona desert that set the stage for her to meet the love of her life, raise three musician children, work in hospice, and start a home care business. Unfortunately, her first spark of inspiration to start writing came when her youngest sister committed suicide. She wrote her first novel as a healing tool, which lead to her fiction writing endeavors and her first published novel, With a Tilt of My Hat.
For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter—but what was the motive of the masked men?
Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.
I walked to my apartment and took a short cut down an alleyway.
That was the worst mistake of my life.
Four men grabbed me. I fought them off, but when the barrel of a gun was pressed between my eyes, I knew the game was up.
But then a man appeared from the shadows and scared the men away like rats.
Tall, dark, and handsome.
His name is Bosco Roth.
He just saved my life, but he didn't do it for free.
He wants something in return.
A kiss. A hot and passionate kiss right up against the wall.
But that kiss is just the beginning.
