A man with a life sentence has nothing to lose. At least Teague doesn't, until his escape plan develops a fatal flaw: Alyssa. On the run from both the law and deadly undercover operatives, he can only give her lies, but every heated kiss tells him the fire between them could be just as devastating as the flames that changed him forever...
Joan: Not as often as I’d like. Since I’ve started writing, my ability to lose myself in a story has been forever altered. Even though I read often, I’m constantly searching for craft and voice and that intangible element that makes every book special. Occasionally, something—either an author’s storytelling ability or a character or the story itself—will suck me in and I’ll get lost and forget all about searching for craft. But not nearly as often as I wish it would.
Joan: I read thrillers, mainstream suspense and many subgenres of romance—contemporary, suspense, thriller, paranormal, historical and of course mixtures. I think my favorite is either a romantic suspense or a romantic thriller.
Joan: Actually, I remember the first book that was read to me. Where the Red Fern Grows. My sixth grade teacher used to read to us everyday after lunch. She’d have us come in, put our heads down on our desks and read a scene or a chapter. It remains the most vivid story in my mind today.
