Guess who's back in WHEN NOONDAY ENDS, a spin-off of LAND OF THE NOONDAY SUN. #SixSunday

Oh...and I've hidden the cover too... 

Spoiler Alert!!!

Though subtle this week, the next few weeks I will be sharing excerpts from my new romantic-suspense, When Noonday Ends, a spin-off of Land of the Noonday Sun.

You will not have to read Land of the Noonday Sun to understand When Noonday Ends, but you will not enjoy reading Land of the Noonday Sun as much if you read second. Just sayin’. J


Sitting at the back of the courtroom, Tom Turner’s mind wandered. One person after another approached the judge, claiming their innocence. He hated doing this, but the law firm where he worked required all new attorneys to accept hardship cases. To get your feet wet, they’d said.
Like his father before him, he’d chosen a career as an attorney. And for once in his life, his parents were actually proud of him.

Well, that's it. Just a quick glimpse of our main character. If you've read Land of the Noonday Sun, you know who Tom Turner is and why he's getting a shot as a main character. Over the next few weeks, I will be working my way through the prologue of When Noonday Ends, which will be available in just a few weeks.

In the meantime, please check out Land of the Noonday Sun to see why readers requested a follow up story.

When two strangers have nothing left but their dreams, they must forge a relationship in Nantahala, North Carolina, a small town known as Land of the Noonday Sun.
