New contracts!

Desert Breeze 300x300 IconHi everyone,

I’m excited to report that I’ve sold my six book New Orleans Detective series to Desert Breeze Publishing. The first book, Cherished Witness, will come out in September! This book has been released before, by a defunct publisher, but it has been re-edited. I’m so happy it will have new life.

Kelly Watson, aka Teresa Pastral, threw the Fifth Amendment out the window when she testified against her mob boss husband at his murder trial. Now divorced, she has begun a new life in the Witness Security Program. Only–the mob finds her, thanks to handsome lawman J.T. Romano, who uses her as bait to lure the man who murdered his wife and unborn child to town. To ensure her safety, she is forced to trust J.T., the man who has betrayed her to the mob. But can she also protect her heart?

I hope to have cover art soon, and will post it as soon as I get it. The other titles and releasedates are as follows:

Prime Suspect, February 2010
Chosen Target, June 2010
Beloved Captive, October 2010
Unwilling Accomplice, February 2011
Perfect Partner, June 2011

Needless to say, I’m thrilled. You can check out Desert Breeze here and my website here.

  1. This is such great news, Melanie. I can’t wait to see the first cover and I’m glad some great things can still come out of all that mess you had to deal with.
