Get it now for KindleNook

When a young writer is kidnapped by a man who can't be seen, her only hope of escape rests on the one London cop who believes in ghosts.

On a cold, white, before-Christmas day, an assassin completes a job only to be pursued by police. 

Dodging through crowded city streets, the assassin nabs a young woman for cover.

Celia Wight, a reclusive American writer is shopping between engagements during a book tour. When a knife is pressed against her back, she loses her tenuous grasp on her carefully controlled existence. 

Assigned to the homicide case, Detective Alban Thain, of the Metropolitan Police, suspects an assassin he calls the Wraith. The problem is, only Thain believes the assassin exists. Disregarding the consequences, Thain, who is the only one who believes there is a connection between the murder and the kidnapping, will do whatever it takes to exploit the Wraith’s first and only mistake: the kidnapping of an innocent bystander—if she is innocent.

Available now in ebook and soft cover on Amazon.

Now for the Hop and Award!

Thanks to Cherdo on the Flipside!
Excellent blog- always worth the click!

      * I have the first week of my blog tour posts written and sent out.

      * I made teasers for Defying Reason's release (next week, btw)

      * Our furnace broke during last weekend's cold snap, but my                      husband got it working. Yay!

       * My laundry pile no longer needs a building permit.

       Thanks Lexa Cain for being the awesome hostess of this hop.

                      It's good to count the blessings!


  1. Lol! A building permit for the laundry pile is the best description I've ever heard! Congrats on getting it down. Sorry to hear about the furnace. That's a pain, but at least your hubs is handy and can help. And yay to getting all the posts done. Sounds like you're on a roll!

  2. Congratulations, Lisa!!
    Glad you got control of the laundry. Building permits for those are tough to acquire.

  3. Books

    "Young hot cowboy" to the rescue. I can imagine.

    Assassin nabbing a young woman.

    Wish I had time to read all these intriguing stories.

    Congrats to the authors and wishing them much success in the sales department.

  4. 80 reviews for Melissa now! (I saw her post it to FB)

    Congrats to everyone! And yay for whittling down that laundry. :)

  5. Congrats, Lisa.

    Glad that laundry pile has shrunk lol and that the furnace got working again, don't need that to go in the winter.

  6. The laundry pile thing made me laugh. Glad you were able to get the furnace working again. It's way too cold to be without heat. Congrats on your upcoming book release and thanks for the new books alert! I'll go check them out. Happy weekend!

  7. Congratulations on the Very Inspiring Blog Award!
    You've got a full Friday going on!
    Looking forward to the 'teasers'. (smile)

  8. Oh, Elizabeth, I am so stealing the "laundry pile needs a building permit" line (especially today). Priceless.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. It IS good to count the blessings, and you have quite a few listed! :) Loved the building permit line, too.

    And those two books look great! I know Melissa's is. I'll have to check out Lisa's.

    good luck on your release coming soon!

  10. Congrats Mel and Lisa. Elizabeth you are indeed blessed and I have wish you all the best in both your writing and personal life. Shout out to th family.

  11. I saw this book on someone else's blog the other day. It sounds so good!

  12. There ALWAYS has to be a young hot cowboy, doesn't there?

  13. A lot of good books. I have Melissa's on my Kindle. Sounds like you have all your ducks in a row, even the laundry. Good Luck with Defying Reason!!!

  14. Congrats to Melissa on all those great reviews! I put Lisa's book on my GR "I Want to Read" list. I think I remember her from YALitChat - she was such a sweetie and I wish her much success! You've gotten a lot done on the book release front! Yay for handy husbands and that your laundry doesn't need its own zip code anymore, right? lol Have a great weekend!

  15. Congrats on getting loads done and to Melissa for awesome reviews. X


  16. Haha! I know that feeling when the laundry backs up! Glad you caught up, Elizabeth. It's so much fun to see the books of IWSG writers being reviewed. Congrats, Lisa! And to the other authors! Thanks for all the good reviews, Elizabeth!

  17. Congrats, Lisa! Sounds like a cool premise!

    My laundry pile doesn't need a building permit, but at this point I may just be better off burning it all and buying new clothes. Better that than burning out my laundry machine.

  18. Este año como cada año, nuestro tren parara en alguna estación, depende de cada uno de nosotros dejar ir a la tristezas, miedos, frustraciones, malos momentos, desamor. Agradece a cada uno de ellos.. su compañía y sus enseñanzas, aunque hayan sido dolorosas, déjalos ir, déjalos bajar de este tren. Deseo que en esta parada, a tu tren suban miles de bendiciones, sueños alcanzables, amor, abundancia, fuerza y determinación para seguir tu viaje.
    Hoy en mi vagón quedaran puestos desocupados y espero te sientes a mi lado para compartir junt@s este nuevo viaje. FELIZ NUEVO COMIENZO EN ESTE AÑO 2015!!!

  19. Lisa's story does sound intriguing.
    Congrats on your upcoming release!

  20. I have a copy of Come Back. The Seventh Man looks so good.

    I hate piled up laundry. I try to do some every day.

  21. I have Come Back on my kindle. I need to bump it up my TBR. And The Seventh Man sounds great!

    I was proud of myself for doing all the laundry a few days ago, however, I just walked by the basket and it's half full. How does that happen with only two of us?

    Good luck with your release. Let me know if you want me to post anything on my blog about it.

  22. Laundry is a big accomplishment...and you've reminded me that I'm behind on mine! So many great books out. Right now I'm just focusing on reading the books of all the nice bloggers who supported me on my blog tour, plus the stuff my fellow Simon & Schuster authors are reading. All other books have to stay off my radar for the rest of the year, unfortunately.

  23. Yay for no more laundry pile building permits!

    And I guess I'm a little late, but I am gifting you with another Very Inspiring Blogger award! http://tyreanswritingspot.blogspot.com/2015/02/wow-very-inspiring-blogger-award.html

  24. All good things to celebrate! :)

    I bought Melissa's book - thank you for the tip. :D

    Huge congrats to Lisa, too! :)
