FATAL FALLOUT party, part deux!

Let's keep the party rolling!  Still having fun?  I know I am!

Today, I want to talk about my heroines.  In my day job, I teach microbiology at a local college. Because science is what I know best, my heroines all have some type of science or medical job. Kelly, from DEADLY CONTACT, is a microbiologist.  Claire, from FATAL FALLOUT, is a nuclear physicist who works for an organization that monitors the safety of nuclear power plants.  And Jillian, from LETHAL LIES (coming in December!) is an ER physician.

These are smart, confident women who know what they want.  But although their careers focus on science and technology, never fear.  My heroines understand that not everyone speaks their language, so they talk just like you and me. :)

When I went to the RWA National conference a few weeks ago, I thought it would be fun to bring along a little something that represents the kind of books I write--romantic suspense with a scientific twist.  Meet Mini:

I had a blast taking pictures of her in different situations!  We ate, we drank, we had fun, and Mini even found herself a boyfriend!

Ooh la la!

Now, I'm happy to report that Mini is in Scotland!  My husband and I are on our honeymoon--make sure you check my website and follow me on Facebook to see the pictures after we get back!

Where should we take Mini next?  Leave me a comment for your chance to win today's copy of FATAL FALLOUT!

Torn between duty and desire, two strangers must risk all for love 

Nuclear physicist Dr. Claire Fleming has one rule: never get close to anyone. But when her colleague is murdered and she's targeted next, she must place all her trust in FBI agent Thomas Kincannon. Soon Claire forgets her tenet as she fantasizes about Thomas's touch. 

Thomas is wildly attracted to Claire. But his life and his job are too complicated for any romantic entanglements. Despite this, they share a mind-blowing kiss, and there's no turning back. When Thomas's niece is abducted, the stakes become dangerously higher as Claire insists he trade her for the child. Somehow, Thomas must find a way to rescue his family and protect the woman who let her protective walls down just for him.
