#WeWrWa #Snippet ~ No Law

Welcome to my blog. I’m your host Camille Taylor, writer of romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. This week’s snippet comes from No Law (Dmitry and Carey). These two would be one of my favourite couples.

 

Wrapping her arms around her body, she tried to drive away the constant cold. There was no worse feeling in the world than being vulnerable. Even in her own home, she was well aware just how unreliable the locks and wood were that were supposed to protect her. If someone wanted in, they would get in. All that stood between them and her was a little time and effort.

 

~Blurb~

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.

#WeWrWa #Snippet ~ Forever With Me

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, Forever With Me, the second book in my Heavenly Series. Austin would have to be one of my favourite characters to have written. Enjoy!

 

Movement caught her eye as Austin darted past her and dived into the water, his toned chest bare. Water sluiced over the edge and she got saturated, moving her cast behind her back just in time. He didn’t resurface until he reached the end of the pool and then turned back towards her. Kendall tried to avert her gaze as his strong arms sliced through water but the powerful movements of his body were too compelling to ignore.

She sighed and gave up trying to look elsewhere. The muscles in his back rippled as he cut through the water like an Olympic swimmer. She was so focused on him that she didn’t see him resurface in front of her until it was too late and she was caught blatantly staring.

Austin trod water as he looked up at her. He grinned mischievously.

 

~Blurb~

At eighteen, Kendall Murphy snuck out of her brother’s house for a night of fun. Austin Warren was looking for the same before he shipped out to basic training. It will be a night they’ll never forget…

Ten years later, newly divorced Kendall reluctantly agrees to accompany her ex-husband to his family’s home in Heavenly for Christmas and act as his wife after she learns he never disclosed their separation to his mother.

Austin returns to his family after a decade of serving overseas and is surprised to find Kendall—a woman he thought of often and regretted walking away from—married and as attracted to her as he’d been years ago.

An unknown stalker who’s been on the fringe of Kendall’s life for years follows her…

Kendall must now deal with an overzealous admirer, her doting ex-husband, his wonderful, caring family and the man she’d never stopped loving and was now lying to.

When the stalker escalates, things get dangerous and Kendall’s life is threatened.

Austin struggles to keep his emotional distance, despite the festive activities keeping him and Kendall together. His attraction could destroy his family, not to mention rip his heart to shreds. Despite knowing this, he finds it difficult to walk away.

Will Austin be able to keep Kendall safe? And will he forgive her when her lies are exposed?

#WeWrWa #Snippet ~ American Law

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. I’ve been absent for the past few months for no reason other than I kept missing the deadline to post but I’m back again this week with a snippet from American Law. Happy reading!

She felt Lucas’s presence before she heard him. He wrapped his big hand around her arm and catapulted her into the nearest room which just happened to be his bedroom. Which she was sure had been planned. He pinned her with his eyes not allowing her to break contact. She swallowed nervously at the fierce look on his face, her mouth suddenly dry as the Sahara. He crossed his arms over his broad chest and leaned back against the closed bedroom door.

She was officially trapped.

“We’re going to finish that talk we started in the car,” he told her and the expression on his face told her that it was non-negotiable.

 

~Blurb~

An enemy of the state, Dmitry Ivanov has nowhere to turn…

A gifted hacker no online firewall can keep out, Dmitry has an affinity for anything with a computer chip. On a business trip to the U.S. he unwittingly becomes entangled in a conspiracy that puts both America and himself in grave danger. Now being hunted by the U.S. Government, Dmitry turns to the one man he can trust—CIA Agent Lucas Gates.

Elena Ivanova puts family before love…

Terrified for her brother Dmitry, Elena takes the first flight out of Moscow to the U.S., unsure of what she’ll find. For the past eighteen months she’s struggled to come to terms with Lucas suddenly distancing himself—especially after falling for him during their ‘Russian Incident.’ But after her husband’s death, was investing her heart in another man really the best move to begin with? Men hardly kept promises. It was anyone’s guess if Lucas would be different.

There’s always an exception to the rule…

Lucas can’t turn down Dmitry’s plea for help. Already caught up in Dmitry’s predicament, there’s also the fact he’s Elena’s brother, and Lucas will do anything for her—even if that means putting his career on the line. But when they come face to face, the connection is deeper than ever, and with danger at every turn, the stakes are that much higher.

The race against time is on to discover who is behind the plot to frame Elena’s brother, and why—before Dmitry is arrested and charged with treason.

#WeWrWa #Snippet ~ Bella Italia

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. An Aussie bookaholic who loves to write as much as read. This week I’m taking you on a trip to Italy with Antonio and Adelaide in Bella Italia. Beautiful azure skies, succulent grapes, and delectable Italians. What more could a girl want?

 

Her pulse raced, visible to the eye. She wet her lips. His fingers tightened, the supple feel of her hips beneath his palms a surprise.

When did they get there? He had no memory of moving them. Adelaide’s eyes changed in reply, darkening. She trembled and sucked in a breath. His temperature spiked as once again her gaze flicked to his lips. Heat rose.

 

~Blurb~

Small-town wallflower, Adelaide Montgomery has lived an uneventful life—until she witnesses the murder of her best friend…

Adelaide clings to the simple security of a home and a wish for family—desires that sent her former fiancé into another woman’s arms.

Happy to remain in Heavenly, Australia for the rest of her life, she reluctantly gives in to her best friend, Rachel’s pleading to join her on a trip to Italy. A decision which will alter her life forever.

Gorgeous men can be deadly killers in disguise…

When her best friend returns to their hotel suite with two male companions the night doesn’t go as planned and Rachel is murdered in cold blood.

Able to identify the killer, Adelaide finds herself a target, barely escaping with her life.

In order to protect his witness, Rome Inspector Antonio Cardellini hides Adelaide at his family’s winery. Though Antonio is a professional and Adelaide is under his charge, his feelings quickly surpass the limits of his job. Knowing one day she will return home, he struggles to distance himself, but the trial and his family continue to throw him and Adelaide back together.

Will Antonio put his badge above his heart? Or will he risk it all—his career, Adelaide’s life, and the possibility of a future together—all for a chance at love?

#WeWrWa #Snippet ~ All Along

Welcome to my blog. I’m Camille Taylor. I write romantic suspense and small-town romance novels. Last Tuesday, my newest story was released in the anthology, Craving Country. All Along features Jarrod and Abby, best friends who suddenly decide they want more. Happy reading 🙂

 

Jarrod’s nostrils flared as he looked up at her. In a lithe move, he was on his feet. His arms clamped around her and pulled her close, burying his nose in her hair. The shovel clattered to the floor. Peace settled deep within her.

He took her lips with a desperate passion. Abby clung to him, unable to let him go. She could’ve lost him tonight.

♥♦♥ BLURB ♥♦♥

Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.

Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?

Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.

But she will have to say goodbye again? And not only to Jared.

 

♥♦♥ EXCERPT ♥♦♥

Ivy enjoyed being with Jared. During their drive towards the Grand Canyon he told her of his home and described as much of Tasmania as possible.
“I always imagined Australia to be hot with white beaches and beautiful water.”
“That’s up in the north in Queensland,” he explained. “We have spectacular beaches as well. Tasmania is a small island in the very south. The last step before the Antarctica, so to speak.”
“That sounds cold!”
He laughed. “It clearly isn’t Queensland.” Settling his gaze on her, he continued, “But it has beautiful beaches as well. And a wonderful marine life. And the mountains. We have some stunning mountains in Tassie.”
“Tassie?”
“Tasmania.”
“It sounds beautiful.”
He agreed. “Yes, it is. One of the best places on earth.”
Once they arrived at the National Park, they found a parking spot and walked towards the edge of the Canyon. She touched his arm to get his attention. Not that she needed to. His attentive nature drew her to him, and she couldn’t get enough of listening to him.
“I feel bad that you pay for everything,” she said in a low voice.
Jared waved his hand. “Nah. It’s only money and luckily the Australian dollar is—”
“Whether you can or can’t afford it, it doesn’t matter. I don’t like it.”
He stopped and turned towards her, causing heat inside her body. Her breath caught but she kept walking, yet, it took him only a few steps to catch up with her and, by way of placing his hand on her shoulder, to stop her.
“Wanna tell me why?”
Avoiding his stare, she lifted her shoulder in a casual shrug.
“A shrug is not really an answer, ya know that, right?”
Yes, she knew that. How could she tell him that she’d left Dylan because he’d spent all the money she’d worked so hard for? She didn’t want to be in the same situation, as in spending someone else’s hard-earned money. But deep inside she didn’t want to hurt Jared, either. She was enjoying her time with him so much, she wasn’t ready for it to end because of some silly pride.
Out of the corner of her eye, she spotted a little squirrel in the bushes and despite some guilt inside, it was a perfect distraction.
“Look!” she said louder than she’d intended. “A squirrel.”
With great relief, she noticed how her devious plan had worked. Jared quickly grabbed his camera and kneeled down to get the best shot possible of this little creature.
Kneeling next to him, she asked, “Don’t you have squirrels?”
Still trying to get that perfect photo of the little creature, he whispered, “Nope.”
