“Hunt’s heart sank. His information was solid. He had to buy some more time until…until what, he wasn’t even sure—until the police showed up? Until he thought of a plan? “We dropped it during a fight with your divers. It fell back into the pit. I’m sure you could find it if you dive it a few times.”
Rick Chesler, Atlantis Gold

“out of his right hand, was a little behind him. Again, they faced a situation where they had reached the edge of their concealment”

Cheryl Hello Rick,

There are only a few weeks left for me to collect votes for Lancelot's Lady in the Dorchester Next Best Celler contest. The prize is a book contract with Dorchester and I really want to win this.

You mentioned you might check out my debut romantic suspense, and I hope you do as soon as possible. It only takes about 5 minutes and I could really use your support.

You can read Lancelot's Lady for FREE. If you enjoy it, please click blue thumb & phone icons. I get 2 points if you do this.

If you click on both circles and leave a comment, you'll be automatically entered in my October Giveaway. I'm giving away signed novels and a grand prize of a $75 Starbucks gift card.

I hope some of your friends will check it out too. I truly will appreciate your votes and any feedback you leave me.

Read Lancelot's Lady and vote at http://bit.ly/yGNet

If you've already voted, THANK YOU!!!

All the best in success!

Cheryl Kaye Tardif
