Hi All!
For those who asked, here is a link to the blurb and excerpt from my work-in-progress, my first contemporary romance, SMOOTH TALKIN' COWBOY.

My gaze rested on the bedside table. There was his dagger, the deadly jimbiya.
I picked it up, examining it slowly. Reverently. The sheath alone, wrought of silver, was a bejeweled work of art. I withdrew the ivory handled blade. If weapons such as these were a show of a man's status, his was that of a king. But for all of its beauty, I was in even greater admiration of its lethal utility.
The curve of the blade, lessened the need to bend the wrist, making it a superior stabbing weapon than a straight blade. The heaviness of it enabled it to inflict deeper and larger wounds, to cut with relative ease through muscle and slit entire organs. I marveled that he would have left it behind. It seemed such a thoughtless act for a man who had professed to leaving nothing to chance.
My pulse raced. My implement of escape was at hand. I only wanted the proper timing.

On a nearby table were several small glass bottles of fragrant oils. I selected one and asked Zilah, "What is this?" Her eyes grew wide as I removed the stopper and sniffed. I closed my eyes, instantly recognizing the scent. I thrust it from me with a snort of disgust. Nevertheless it haunted me, overwhelming my senses with the tauntingly familiar perfume, a blend of ambergris and sweet incense with nuances of tobacco and wood—attar of Ahmed Ben Hassan, Sheik of the Sahara.
