BLOOD RITE blurb:
Women in New Orleans are dying; women New Orleans Police detective Nick Marconi has dated. To make matters worse, they have all been found with vials of his murdered sister’s blood in their throats. Nick is walking a tightrope between depression and rage. His superiors are worried about his mental health, so they send him to see psychiatrist Gracie Simmons.
Gracie is walking a tightrope of her own. She became a psychiatrist because she wants to help people, and in addition to private practice, she also treats police and parolees. The extra work gives her flashbacks about her father, however, a bad cop arrested when she was just fifteen. Then a former flame harasses her, and her best friend turns up dead. Desperate for a distraction, she makes Nick her special project. Only… he doesn’t want to be saved.
Hope you’ll check it out — along with my January and February books out at Desert Breeze. See the next post for info on QUEST FOR JUSTICE, my January book. Then in February, CHERISHED WITNESS, the first book in my New Orleans Detective series, comes out in print! Woohoo!
Kelly Watson, aka Theresa Pastral, threw the Fifth Amendment out the window when she testified against her mom 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 ex-NOPD detective 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 trust him with her heart?
