Journalist Skylar Shaw covers a plane crash on a Florida beach that leads her to a handsome yet mysterious Italian man...and the conspiracy that threatens all he holds dear.
Romance is the last thing on reporter Skylar Shaw's mind when she covers a plane crash on a Florida beach. Her best source could be a mysterious Italian man, but he's strictly off the record--unless it involves indulging their electrifying attraction to each other. Little does Skylar know, but that crash is only the beginning.
Luca Rossi is hiding a big secret: He's a journalist, too, and his anonymous exposé on the Mafia destroyed his world. Now, after two lonely years on the run, he will do anything to possess this vulnerable American beauty. But Skylar is as relentless as the Florida glare, and the situation ignites when she reports on a gruesome murder in a swamp.Soon erotic nights will bleed into dangerous days, and nowhere will be safe from the heat.

The idea of this book has been in my brain for a few years. As a journalist, I've covered some of the most tragic news stories imaginable. The Haiti earthquake. The Gulf oil spill. Too many murders to count.
I wanted to tell a story with a happy ending.
I'm a longtime romance reader and love books with intrigue and sex. I also couldn't shake off my years of covering crime in Florida. I began to wonder: What would happen if a young, rookie reporter met a hot Italian man while covering a story, then fell in love? What if the Italian was hiding a big secret? What if the Italian was also a journalist, but couldn't tell anyone because he was running from danger?
Hot Shade was born.
My Boroughs Publishing Group editor, Chris Keeslar, helped me bring out the nuances in the hero and heroine. We also talked a lot about the book's setting and how Florida is almost another character in the novel. As a romantic suspense, Hot Shade has some of the qualities of the Florida noir genre: sun-soaked, sexy and ever-so-slightly cynical.And yet, it's a romantic story of two people who find true love in the tropics.
I hope readers enjoy the book!
