The annual NJRW “Put Your Heart in a Book” Conference is less than six weeks away! This year, we have two Golden Leaf Hall of Fame recipients. This achievement is awarded to a published author who has won three times in the same category. Presentation of the prestigious Hall of Fame award will be done during the NJRW Put Your Heart in a Book Conference award ceremony on October 17, 2014.
Over the next several days, we will spotlight these award-winning books.
Spotlight on Romantic Suspense: “Dark Deceptions,” by Dee Davis (Grand Central), Golden Leaf winner 2010
“Let go of me.” Gravel dug into her back, and Annie swore as she tried to push her way free.
“Not on your life,” Nash whispered, his grip tightening. “This isn’t a game. And even if it were, you’ll remember I’m not big on losing.”
“I remember a lot of things,” she said, twisting left, slamming her knee up into his gut. He grunted in pain, and she scrambled to her knees, only to have him tackle her again.
They rolled across the rooftop, each trying to gain the upper hand. They’d sparred like this hundreds of times over the years. Each with their share of wins. But this time the stakes were much higher.
She pushed off, trying for leverage, but Nash flipped them so that he straddled her. His face was flushed, his breathing coming in gasps. “When did I become the enemy, Annie?”
“When you let me go.”
