Shadow Hawk

My next book, Shadow Hawk, is hitting the stores very soon. Romantic Times gave it a 4 1/2 Top Pick, and the cover alone is worth the price of admission, but to be honest, the writing of this one almost killed me. My poor editor was probably dreaming about strangling me in my sleep before I got this bad boy in shape … But given the advance reviews I’ve seen, I did eventually get the very sexy Hawk right.

I have a copy that I’m going to give away, chosen randomly from today’s commentors. In the meantime, here’s an excerpt:

The bastard had shot him, point blank, and given that he felt like his lungs had collapsed, he assumed he’d taken the hit in his chest, over his bullet proof vest. God bless the bullet proof vest. Stunned, gasping for air that he did not have in his lungs, he tried to remain conscious, but his vision had already faded on the edges and was closing in as he lay on his back, staring up at the night sky, unable to move, but plenty able to feel as a whole new kind of pain made itself at home in every corner of his body . . .

“Hawk? Check in,” Abby said via the radio in his ear.

Check in? He felt like he was checking out . . . But radio was back, good to know, and man, did she sound hot. Too bad he was floating . . . floating on agony, thank you very much, and utterly unable to move.

Or speak.

“Hawk.”

Ah, wasn’t that sweet? She sounded so worried. He was touched, or would have been if he could get past the searing pain currently tap-dancing through him. He needed to move, to get up, to protect himself, but before he could, a foot planted itself on his throat, and then the fire in his body sizzled along with his vision as his air supply was abruptly cut off.

  1. Ms. Shalvis now that was just mean. Can’t wait to read it.

    Did you watch Dancing Last night?

  2. Love it! Can’t wait to see what happens! Did you get to meet the AB MAN? WOW!!

  3. Jill, do you know if and when this comes out in Australia? And if it will be branded as a Blaze or a Temptation?

  4. I’m suffering serious Blaze withdrawal here, and I think this might just be the cure. A trip to the bs is surely required.

  5. Oh, man – you can’t stop there! That was just plain mean. :yes: Yup, definitely need to read this. Sounds like a great read.

  6. Were we supposed to read something..LOL! Great cover for the book!

    Thanks for the chance to win this book!!!!
    Good luck ladies!

  7. This is definitely a “must have” book. The cover has me hot just looking at it. :hyper: The excerpt finalized the deal. You are such a tease. I wanna know more. Good luck everyone and hugs to all. :wave:

  8. There is nothing like leaving us holding our breath and wanting more! :hyper:

    I added it to my TBB list when you gave us a look at the cover earlier. :yes:

  9. I order all of the Harlequins I read as soon as they come out on the website so that I get them early. I guess I pressed the wrong button. I got another Blaze instead of this one :thumbsdown: ! I am not a happy camper, especially after reading the excerpt. I guess I will just have to wait :hissyfit: .
