BOOK COVER FOR BENEATH THE SURFACE!



Are you ready? Really ready? Okay (drum roll please). The cover for BENEATH THE SURFACE has arrived. I couldn't be happier! The cover art department at The Wild Rose Press did a wonderful job. Special thanks to cover artist Kimberlee Mendoza for her awesome work!







BENEATH THE SURFACE

She's fighting to stay independent--he's determined to protect her no matter what...

Brooke Richards survived the earthquake that took her parents and most of her leg, but she needs time to regroup. A trip to Florida for a state-of-the-art prosthesis and to visit her best friend Linda seems ideal. But the trip turns traumatic when Brooke witnesses Linda's boat disintegrating in a fiery explosion.

Police Officer Garrett Ciavello believes the blast was intentionally set to hide something Linda found on a dive. When Brooke offers her expertise in underwater archaeology, Garrett accepts her help with the investigation. But since his fiancee's death years ago, Garrett has become overprotective, and as they are drawn to each other, Garrett realizes he will risk anything to keep Brooke safe.

Brooke is fiercely independent. Garrett is fiercely protective. Will they heal each other's wounds and find a killer...before it's too late?
