Flood Releases Today!

It's release day! My Wings ePress novel Flood releases today. I got the inspiration to write Flood after I watched TV coverage of a flood that created massive devastation. At the same time, I became aware of the horrific abuse some disgusting people put animals through. The two things combined, and I created a vet and a group of animal lovers who have to face a huge flood. To make things interesting, my hero is an ex-convict, and my vet is a woman from an uptown kind of family. To complicate things more, she's logical and systematic, not a woman who leads with her emotions.  And of course there are some people working behind the scenes to discredit Caleb and remove him from Aria's life.

Here's the official blurb for Flood.

Drawn together by their love of animals, Aria De Luca and Caleb Hawkins burn for each other. They never suspected that malignant forces around them were successfully plotting Caleb’s ruin from the moment he entered her life. When the flood of a century strikes Aria’s hometown, an alienated Caleb is all that stands between her and catastrophic loss.

And now for a short excerpt. For a chance to win a five dollar Amazon certificate, answer the following question after you read the excerpt: If Aria went inside Caleb's room, what's the first thing she imagined he would do?

Caleb’s eyes twinkled as a smile spread across his face. “I don’t see you at a loss for words too often.”
“What do you mean by that?”
He wound a lock of her hair around his finger. “You’re a take-charge kind of gal. You’re decisive, confident, and very capable, but right now you can’t put two words together without stuttering. I think that’s a good sign.”
Aria felt hot blood rush to her face. “I think you should go, Caleb. It’s been a long day.”
His eyes, filled with heat and desire, met hers. “Are you sure you want me to go?”
She was sure she didn’t want him to go, but she had told him the truth. Things were moving too fast for her. “Not tonight, Caleb. Tonight you have to go.”
He let go of her hair and picked up his tee shirt. “Okay. I’ll go.” He grinned at her. “Do I have to walk back to the motel?”
She sighed and rolled her eyes. “Of course not.”
Grabbing her purse, she drove him back to his rental house. For a moment neither of them spoke, then Caleb reached for her hand. “You can come in if you like.”
Aria bit her lip against the desire to take him up on his offer. Her body still burned in the places where his hands had rested, and if they could be alone together for five minutes, she’d burn all over. Had she ever wanted a man so badly? No. No, she hadn’t. The urge to give in was almost overwhelming.
              All she had to do was get out of the car. He’d unlock the house and let her go in before him. 

The minute the door closed, he’d take her in his arms. She broke out in goosebumps when she

 imagined his lips against her neck. 

I hope you enjoyed the excerpt, and I hope you'll join me tonight for a Facebook release party. I'm giving away some more gift certificates, and we'll have some games and lots of fun. Click here to go to the party. It's at 7:00 PM EST.
