Angel’s Masquerade is off to my editor. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed writing it. The novella, however, was the one that pushed me into a five day burnout rut. It wasn’t anything about the book itself. I, as usual, tried to pack more action than was humanly possible in such a short word count. 🙂 I had to cut a major component of my initial manuscript because it would end up being a 60k novel by the time it was said and done. Instead, I worked out a second (and possibly third book) to work on later in the year. Final word count came to 35,728.
Five years ago Tarina Santos’s life was turned upside down when one by one her mission operatives were targeted and murdered. Marked as Killed in Action during the final explosions, the former mission operator was shuttled from one cover assignment to another while they waited for the traitor to step forward.
She could never forget, however, the two powerful men who filled her nights with fantasies and the one chance she had at being theirs. A strange gift and an invitation gives her a chance to finally experience what both men can offer, but the price may be too high.
Raven and Drake shared everything, including their women. One voice, however, led them from the dark. Their own personal angel, Tarina. Now she’s in trouble and trapped with them on a paradise cruise while a terrorist roams free.
Every touch ties them closer together while the danger grows darker with every move. Betrayal and murder will pave the way to a devastating end unless they can figure out who’s behind it all and trust in one another.
