#WeWriWa #Snippet ~ No Law

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. This week I have another snippet from No Law. Dmitry was so fun to write and I’m so excited to share his and Carey’s book.

 

 

She walked quietly up behind him, thinking he didn’t know she was there. She admired how his dark hair curled at the ends, and her fingers itched to run through the thick mass. He was deeply engrossed in what he was doing so she continued to watch him, how his long fingers flew across the keyboard, his back muscles moving beneath his shirt. She flushed, thinking how those fingers would feel on her skin, touching, stroking her. She startled guiltily when he spoke.

“Feeling better?” he asked.

She nodded, stepping beside him.

At just twenty-four years old, Carey Madigan was made a widow—by the Russian Mafiya…

Years after her husband’s murder, Carey relocated from Russia back to U.S., where she works as an assistant curator for a prestigious museum. Her past seemingly left behind, she no longer looks over her shoulder or jumps at shadows. That is, until her boss is murdered—by the Russian Mafiya.

Carey’s past comes back to haunt her…

When the police discover the nature of her husband’s untimely demise, Carey becomes the prime suspect. But worse, the Mafiya is again pursuing her, and now that she’s seen their faces, they’re out to silence her for good. Frightened, she turns to an old friend—CIA agent Elena Gates.

Dmitry Ivanov is a tech legend in the hacker underworld…

Russian born and raised, Dmitry uses his skills to help the CIA. Filling in for his sister Elena, he is intrigued when Carey walks through the door. When he sees her reluctance, he realizes he has to win her trust before he can help her. And if anyone has a chance of clearing her name, uncovering the motives behind her boss’ murder, and protecting her from the men determined to end her life, it’s him.

Together, Dmitry and Carey uncover a trail that leads them to the discovery of a priceless artifact. Now they must fight to keep it—and themselves—out of harm’s way, and convince the authorities Carey is not a cold-blooded killer.

When the Mafiya is out for blood…No law will keep them safe.

A delicious hug ~ No Law

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. Today, I’m sharing a snippet from No Law, the conclusion to the Law Series and I’m so excited to share Dmitry’s and Carey’s book.

 

 

Without warning, Dmitry drew her to him, holding her close. She closed her eyes at the sensation of being enveloped in his arms. Immediately, she began to feel lighter. It was amazing how much better she felt knowing she was no longer in this fight alone. That she had help and maybe she would get out on top, alive, and free of all charges. She breathed in his scent and her stomach fluttered. She could get used to this.

Pushing it ~ Fatal Fiction

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. Today, I’m sharing a snippet from Fatal Fiction, book 5 of the Harbour Bay series. Happy reading!

 

She hesitated.

“I suggest you get your arse moving.”

Riley glared at Nick, he was seriously annoying her. “Such language, Detective Doyle. How is that you got a reputation of being a lady’s man?”

“I’m perfectly rational and polite with all other members of your sex. It appears only you, Riley O’Neill, can send my manners and good intentions out the window.”

She followed Nick out, speeding up so she didn’t fall behind and he made good on one of the many threats he’d issued this morning. 

 

~Blurb~

 

Workaholic Riley O’Neill gets more than she bargained for when she unwittingly becomes a witness to a horrific murder…on paper.

When news of a similar murder to the one she read reaches her, Riley soon believes the killer is communicating with her.

When a second manuscript arrives, featuring her as a victim, she is packed up and placed into protective custody.

Detective Nicholas Doyle has wanted Riley since their first meeting…

But Nick has been burned before. This time, it wasn’t just his heart on the line. A failed relationship could destroy their circle of tight-knit friends which has him keeping his distance as much as possible.

He is her only option to stay safe.

Confined together for the first time, Nick and Riley must confront their feelings and fears and learn to get along while fighting the desire that’s been burning beneath the surface for over a year.

Time begins to run out. The killer still at large, and moving closer to Riley with each murder. One wrong move and Riley is at the killer’s mercy.

Keeping Riley safe from the killer is easy. Keeping his hands off her is another story…

Is Abby guilty? ~ All Along

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. Below is a snippet from All Along, a part of the Craving Country Anthology. Happy reading!

 

“I think I killed him.”

Jarrod Bowman blinked. He stood with his best friend, Abby Kildare, at the front door, darkness enveloping her, her unfocused eyes and serious expression highlighted in the soft glow coming from inside his house behind him. His heart damn near stopped as he noticed the cut on her forehead, intersecting her eyebrow. The blood staining her waitressing shirt had dread twisting knots in his belly.

Her toneless voice chilled him, as did the vacant gaze. He pulled her to him and cursed silently as his grip found icy skin, despite the dry heat of the night. She came willingly, though he doubted she was aware of anything at the moment, her body trembling against him.

There’s something about a country boy that makes us hot for denim jeans and leather hats.

They’re mysterious, intriguing, confident…and demand our attention in everything they do. Then there’s the fierce loyalty you see in their eyes that makes you think of tangled sheets and sinful deeds.

There’s definitely something sexy about a cowboy…

So pull on those jeans, roll up your sleeves, and grab your boots.

Things are about to get dirty…

…in Craving Country.

Sleeping beauty ~ Melting Her Heart

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. Below is a snippet from one of my small-town (rural/western) romances, Melting Her Heart, the fourth book in my Heavenly Series. Happy reading!

 

“Chloe.” He gently nudged her.

Her nose twitched in her sleep, one of the cutest things he’d ever seen. Her tongue swept out and dampened her dry lips. He went still, coughing as his pants tightened slightly and tried again.

This time her eyes fluttered and when her gaze locked onto him, she jerked awake, her body sliding back in the bed to get as far away from him as he could. Her hand settled over her heart as she breathed quickly. He swore—a perpetual state for him at the moment—at having scared her and apologised profusely.

 

~Blurb~

Melting Her HeartChloe Madison has remained locked beneath an icy interior for years, determined never to feel anything ever again. When her sister arrives in town, pregnant and single Chloe is forced to help…

Angry and feeling betrayed, Chloe refuses to forgive her sister for abandoning her and hardens her heart against her sister’s attempts at reconciliation even as her life begins to unravel and she is faced with a terrifying future.

Deacon Chandler has loved Chloe since their first meeting. Despite Chloe’s cold shoulder, he refuses to give up, holding onto the belief something wonderful is just around the corner.

The closer he gets, the farther she moves away…

Deacon has no idea how to get through to Chloe. She appears happy with her life as is and he has no part in it. When Chloe continues to turn to close friend and Deacon’s boss, jealousy burns. Has he already lost her before he’d even gotten her?

Someone is out to punish Chloe…

Her integrity is questioned and her carefully guarded image destroyed. Slowly her protective armour begins to crack, and all her demons are brought to light. Her only chance is to trust the people around her and let go of the past that destroyed her.

Will Deacon wait until she realises he is the man for her, or will Chloe finally push him away?

Regrets ~ Fatal Fiction

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. This week, I’m sharing a snippet from my latest release Fatal Fiction, book 5 of the Harbour Bay series. Enjoy!

 

Why the hell could he not get his legs to follow after her and show her what he’d been hiding all this time?

Because he was scared. He had no idea how to get over it. Even now, he found it hard to trust.

Plates clanged as she stacked them in the dishwasher. He cursed softly.

The sooner he closed this case and brought the killer to justice, the sooner he could move Riley out of his life. Seeing her only wedged the knife further into his heart and until he was ready to take the plunge he had to keep his hands, and lips off of her.

Encounters ~ Town of Secrets

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. Below is a snippet from one of my small-town (rural/western) romances, Town of Secrets, the third book in my Heavenly Series. Happy reading!

 

A knock on the front door had her jumping. She glanced down the hallway towards the door where a large silhouette dominated the small glass pane. She ironed out the imaginary creases of her blouse as she strode to the door, stopping just as she reached it. She stood for a moment, wondering if she’d be met with the townspeople carrying pitchforks ready to run her out of town—that or tie her to a stake and burn her—either possibility was more than likely after the reception she had in town. The next few weeks were going to be unbearable. She huffed out a deep breath and opened the door as the fist rose once more, about to knock a second time.

The breath she had just taken caught in her throat and her pulse jumped when she looked up—six feet up—into the darkest eyes she had ever seen. Her body warmed and her stomach flipped.

 

~Blurb~

TOSSixteen-year-old, Charlotte Townsend left her small town under a cloud of suspicion…

Thirteen years later she returns, determined to prove her innocence in her mother’s gruesome murder and clear to her name. The town rebels against her and only her small group of friends believe her, including the man she abandoned to think the worse, current police chief, Drew MacLeod.

Drew has spent the last decade searching for Charlotte. He never gave up hope of one day seeing her again. Years ago, he’d been the one to introduce Charlotte to the world she was missing out on under her mother’s firm thumb. Upon her return, he discovers she’s been holding out on him.

Someone in town will stop at nothing to keep Charlotte there…

Charlotte is desperate for Drew’s forgiveness. He is the only man she’ll ever love and the thought of him hating her forever scares her more than anything. When those who outwardly oppose her return begin to meet with unfortunate accidents, will Drew continue to believe in her innocence?

In small towns, everyone knows your business, in Heavenly everything is a secret.

As Charlotte begins to investigate the past, she learns some shocking truths about her heritage that put her and everyone she cares about in danger.

Drew and Charlotte must unravel the age-old mystery before the town can push her out or the real killer finds a way to get to Charlotte…
