Dear Reader, Love Jane Godman

Dear Reader…

I don’t just read romances, I devour them. Historical, contemporary, suspense, paranormal…I love them all. And I know how it goes. It’s not a formula, it’s an expectation. The characters have to go through hell to get to their happy ending.

As a writer of romances, I’m the person who has to torture my own characters. I write paranormal romance and romantic suspense, so I get to torture both shifters and real people. I also write erotic romance under another name, so torture takes on a whole other meaning in those stories! 

Covert Kisses is a romantic suspense story, the first in a series set in the small town of Stillwater, Wyoming. The heroine, an undercover cop, is being hunted by a serial killer and the only person she can turn to is the man she came to Stillwater to investigate.

The trust between the hero and the heroine is a key part of the story, but, as I was planning it, I had that torture element at the back of my mind. How could I make it almost impossible for him to trust her? What could she do that was so bad he would want nothing to do with her?

Even though investigating him for drug and human trafficking when he’s innocent is bad enough, she’s only doing her job. But Laurie Carter knows when she arrives in town that she’ll get Cameron Delaney’s attention. She knows he’ll take notice of her.

How? Because she’s the mirror image of her cousin, Carla Bryan, Cameron’s girlfriend. The woman for whom he’s still grieving after she died on her boat out on Stillwater Lake twelve months ago.

And, although using his grief against him doesn’t feel good to Laurie, that is how she gets to know Cameron Delaney and begins her undercover operation into his business. Unfortunately for her, it’s also how she attracts the attention of the man who killed Carla.

As for Cameron, how can he trust a woman who decided to exploit his emotions that way? He has to put aside his animosity when Laurie is in danger, but can he ever forgive the cruel way she used her likeness to Carla to get to him?

Torture, dear Reader. Delicious.

Coincidence? The beauty who washes up on Mayor Cameron Delaney's private beach eerily resembles his dead girlfriend, Carla.

Laurie knows she must keep her cover—but she's struggling to deceive the man she finds irresistible… 

When Cameron discovers why Laurie is in town, he's furious to realize he's being framed—and stunned at his sudden feelings for the lovely agent.
