My romantic suspense has been contracted by The Wild Rose Press. This is the one whose working title was Trust in Time.

Now it's LETHAL REFUGE. Much more oomph. The title derives from the fact that the heroine has been sent to a safe house organised by the New Zealand Police. But someone knows exactly where she is and is intent on shutting her up - permanently. Why and how? Read the book when it comes out.

I'm pleased that TWRP is so complimentary about the book. This is one of those things you write that you really, really believe in. It's odd, but when you're writing a book, sometimes you get chills up and down your spine. Something tells you: this is the one. I felt like that about Coming Home and I feel like that about Lethal Refuge. It's a sort of a zing that gives you the impetus to keep writing on and on after 2 a.m. when the whole neighbourhood is asleep and you're writing by the light of your screen so as not to disturb the family.

Some time soon I'll post more. At the moment I shall just bask.
