Jeannie Faulkner Barber Thanks, Leah for the review. I have to say, it was a very difficult 'project' because with two authors there is always a difference in voice. However, we did accomplish the goad intended.

My solo suspense, Taste of Fire will debut in February 2012. Perhaps you'll be interested enough to check it out, too. If so, just contact me. Here is the blurb.

Flames from a fiery car crash, brand the arm of the blameless child occupant. Allegedly forsaken by her mother, spirited Terri Neal is raised by the surviving parent, Fire Captain Chuck Neal. Incessantly teased by childhood peers over the uncharacteristic scar, she finds comfort in her father’s explanation of how it came to be, “The flames licked your arm, but when it tasted you, it knew you were special, and the fire was afraid.”

Out of love and admiration for this valiant man, Terri joins the ranks and develops into a dedicated, top-notch firefighter. Distraught after Chuck’s shadowy death in a mysterious building fire, Terri becomes overly aggressive in her career.

In the attempt to save a kitten from a crumbling house fire, she sees her father’s image in the flickering inferno. He instructs the iron-willed young woman to seek out her biological parents. However, this task will be far from mundane as it propels her down a path of intrigue, romance, and peril. Light begins to flow into Terri Neal’s life, but is quickly extinguished. In the depth of night lurks a lethal stalker.

Death approaches and someone will soon succumb to the insatiable Taste of Fire.

Warm wishes, Jeannie
