LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW TO WIN ONE OF THREE KINDLE COPIES OF THE ROMANTIC SUSPENSE THRILLER DEADLINE!
“This week’s theme is A Sexy Delight and it can mean just about anything. When we first thought of this, the song Afternoon Delight came up as well as thoughts about sexy evening delights and other wondrously sexy things. Basically, this one is up to you.
Still, we want to remind you to think about lovers committing to each other, no matter where they are. The stakes can be high or there can be no stakes.”
Here is an excerpt from GFA Nominee Deadline, and the stakes couldn’t be higher as author Gillian Tate is pursued by a hate group out for blood.

“And what about us?”
She shook her head. “That’s why I have to go now. There is no ‘us.’ There can’t be an ‘us.’”
“Goddamnit, look at me, Gillian!” He thumped the roof of the car with the bottom of his nightstick, and she jumped. She turned to him with shining bloodshot eyes as he leaned into the window. “Why can’t there be an ‘us’?”
“Our lives are just too different. You’re the police chief in this tiny town up here practically in Canada. I live in the City, and I have this writing career that has me traveling all over the world. I can’t stay here. I need to leave before we get in too deep.”
“I hate to tell you this, sweetheart, but we already are in deep.”
