Guest blog at Just Romantic Suspense where I shared a deleted scene from SHE BELONGS TO ME

Thanks for stopping by; here's my guest blog courtesy of Just Romantic Suspense.

Hello, dear readers, I’m Carmen DeSousa, a newcomer on the block, but I believe you will enjoy my novel SHE BELONGS TO ME.
Readers who adore J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts, Kat Martin, Iris Johansen, and Nicholas Sparks have been loving it; in fact, She Belongs to Me has been neighbors with all these great authors on Amazon’s top 100 paid bestsellers in romantic suspense.

I brought the mini synopsis with me to share with you, and below, I found an archived email of She Belongs to Me’s protagonist, Jaynee.

After secrets and a mysterious background leave a wife’s life hanging by a thread, a husband must look for answers in the only place he knows—the past.

When wealthy construction company owner and Charlotte detective, Jordan Monroe, meets Jaynee for the first time he is awestruck and determines to make her his wife. Jaynee, however, has a history she cannot easily overcome and is fearful to submit to love. Jordan succeeds in making her his wife, but five years into their marriage, he realizes she is keeping secrets.  Before he can decipher her duplicity, he discovers her unconscious in their home from a gunshot wound only hours after giving her an ultimatum concerning their relationship.

With Jaynee’s life hanging in the balance, the mystery of her past drives Jordan to investigate. But what appears to be an attempted suicide turns out to be something far darker. Is someone from her past stalking her? Or worse, is someone close to Jordan trying to kill them both? As Jordan edges closer to the truth, it may be deadlier than he could ever have imagined.

The night of the shooting, Jaynee typed an email to her best friend; unfortunately, as the vehicle pulled up in front of the house, Jaynee deleted it, or at least she thought she did.

My dear friend Rainey,

I really should have called, but I know how crazy busy you are, so I didn’t want to disturb you. I promise to call soon, but right now, I just have to tell you what’s happened in the last few days, as I know you are the only one who knows everything about my past and will understand.

First of all, as we discussed before, that “Big Thing” I told you I might do…well, it might just happen. I’ve been on the phone every day, working through the specifics, so I’ll let you know.

And guess who showed up… Yep, you guessed right. I’m not sure what to do. There’s no telling what Jordan will do if he finds out.

Oh, someone’s pulling up; I’ll talk to you later.

Love ya,


So as you read in the mini synopsis, Jaynee ends up with a gunshot wound to the head. The question is why, or who?

To find the answer all you have to do is download the book, and I am going to offer an unheard of promotion.

Anyone who downloads She Belongs to Me, email me (Author dot Carmen DeSousa @ gmail dot com) your Amazon review in the next few weeks and I will send you a complimentary copy of Land of the Noonday Sun, which will be available next month.

She Belongs to Me is only $2.99, so it’s like getting a bestseller— hopefully two bestsellers—for only $1.50 each.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to connect with me:
