ON THE 7th DAY OF CHRISTMAS - PAULA GRAVES
Here we are at Day 7 with an author I've known for a LONG time. Since before we sold, certainly. I'm thrilled she's hangin' out with us during the 12 Days of Christmas!
Please welcome Paula Graves to the party!
As a child, my favorite books were Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries and Harlequin Romances. When I realized there were books that featured both romance and mystery, I knew I'd found my calling. Now I write for Harlequin Intrigue, where I get to play both matchmaker and murderer and get paid for it.
In addition, I work a full-time day job at a Birmingham ad agency, where I'm a copywriter and graphic designer, a background that comes in handy when it's time to redesign my website and create promotional materials for my books. I'm also known among certain circles as the Cat Whisperer, but that's a whole other story. I love to hear from readers, so please visit my website at www.paulagraves.com, click the contact button and tell me what you think about my books.
What was supposed to be a quiet vacation in scenic Wyoming turned deadly when Hannah Cooper became the target of a serial killer. Although she survived the attack, the ordeal was far from over. But she wasn’t alone. Not when Riley Patterson appointed himself her protector.
Beneath Riley’s strapping, solemn exterior hid a hard-driving sheriff who would stop at nothing to catch a killer. He promised Hannah safety, but it was the danger he posed that drew her in. Riley was as much a mystery as the man who sought to take her life. Trapped on his ranch, with no one but each other to trust, only justice could set them free…and possibly separate them forever.
Cooper Justice: One family determined to do what’s right.
