The rights for several of my books from earlier in my career have reverted to me, so by the end of the year, I’ll be able to share with you a sweet new-adult romance (with more than a touch of suburban noir) entitled The Sound of Your Voice, with its yummy cover by Kalen O’Donnell:
Back cover copy:
Who do you listen to when every word might be a lie?
Brought up in a strict religion in the small town of Hamilton Falls, Washington, 19-year-old Chloe Montoya has seen the leaders she trusted disgraced and watched helplessly as her best friends rejected their faith. When Luke Fisher is invited to headquarter his ministry in town, Chloe is drawn to the handsome radio evangelist. Against her church’s will, she joins the staff at the station as bookkeeper and, while she enjoys doing her part to support Luke’s vision for the community, she begins to realize that under the message is a sound that frightens her …
Fresh out of the state police academy and assigned to the Organized Crime Task Force, Ray Harper is sent to Hamilton Falls to investigate an underground church that seems to attract the criminal and the predatory. What he finds is a town prospering in its religious fervor—and a dark-haired, dark-eyed innocent who he’d bet his first year’s salary has never been kissed.
Ray has no use for religion. She’s forbidden even to speak to him. But Luke Fisher’s growing power threatens what they both love—and sometimes you have to listen to someone … and hope that they hear you …
I’ll let you know when it’s out!
