Apprentice in Death cover

I know the Apprentice in Death excerpt included in the last Nora’s News only whetted the thirst, but it didn’t quench it.  (Let’s be really honest though: for many readers the entire book doesn’t quench the thirst.  <g>) So I thought you’d like a little bit more on this hot Friday in July.

If you need a refresher, the prologue is here.

And without any further comment, here is Chapter 1.

Apprentice in Death will be released on September 6.

You’re welcome.

The Obsession excerpt

Untitled-1

The Obsession — Nora’s 2016 hardcover romantic suspense — will be in stores on April 12 in the US and Canada (April 4 in the UK/AUS/IRE/NZ/SA).

The publisher blurb reads:

Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.

Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.

Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

My review?  You’re going to LOVE it.

Dark Witch, an excerpt

dwlarge

Dark Witch, book 1 of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy, will be in stores on October 29.  Just four short weeks!

I had a chance to read Dark Witch over a couple of rainy August days.  The dark skies certainly set the tone and I loved the first meeting of the cousins.  Nora created such vivid images I wanted to throw on a heavy sweater, then set out in the cold and wet to find a cozy pub.

Of course, it was 90 degrees in North Carolina so I had to imagine the sweater and the firelit pub, but it was a lovely daydream.

Here, to set your own imagination on fire, is an excerpt: DW excerpt.

If you haven’t already done so, you can pre-order Dark Witch from many places, including Turn the Page Bookstore.
