Hello all!

Welcome to the sneak peeks countdown. With the second book of the new series, Baptism by Fire, soon to be released on July 1st, I'll be posting some snippets from the story to whet your whistles :)

This book has been a long time in the making, so if you're still here, thanks for sticking through.

Some notes before we get to the good stuff... my first series, The Cardinal Series is all completed and available on Amazon Kindle Unlimited for free. It's also available for purchase. If you're interested in purchasing a hardcopy set of the first two books, The Cardinal Bird and Cardinal Caged, you can buy the first volume here. This volume is also available in the Kindle Unlimited store if you want to purchase or add to your ten-book Unlimited list to help free up a slot for another great book. I know I always have a hard time trying to cull my ten-book limit. Get the Kindle version here. Soon, I'll be bundling the second volume of the series to include Cardinal of Hope and The Cardinal Sin as well as Cardinal Rose and The Red Cardinal. I'll make sure to announce it on social media.

One more thing before the preview, I've got the third book, Backfire, up on Amazon, so preorder your copy today!

Baptism by Fire, Book 2


Kara flashed a shit-eating grin. “Hey, I can’t help that we both figured out that the way to get past your walls is by being annoyingly persistent. If you don’t like it, you should just give in easier.”

“Spoken like a true sexual predator,” I ribbed with a laugh.

She shrugged, her robe slipping inches apart. “I am what I am and proud of it. Be careful on those roads, Sash. I know you didn’t drink any of the wine—”

“Despite your best annoyingly persistent efforts.”

“—but these roads are tricky.”

“I will.”

“Text me when you reach the café.”

“Okay, Mom.”

“I’m serious, Sasha Li! And if you don’t let me know you made it home alright, I’ll call the police. Or maybe the fire station. Is that idea embarrassing enough to get my point across?”

“You wouldn’t.”

“Sasha.” Her head whipped back as if I’d punched her in the gut, and then in a very sincere voice, she said, “You know me better than that.”

Yes, unfortunately, I did. “I’ll text you.”
