Afternoon, Snippeteers! Does anyone else struggle to find words the moment they hear a “guest post” mentioned? I’m in the middle of organising promo for Matisse & Josh, writing a freebie short, and a stack of guest posts… all while coming to grips with two new clients, a new networking group, and the fiesta of crazy shopping rapidly approaching. To top it all, I’m really late submitting my accounts. /sigh/
I’m not making too much progress with the blog post writing, but I think I’m allowed to be a little distracted. At least I got the Undercover Star files alll built and uploaded, the paperback proof ordered, and the ARCs sent out. If anyone would like a copy to review, I’d be very happy to send one across. 🙂
And now… we left Matisse last week in the process of cracking a jewellery cabinet with a hairpin to demonstrate the lack of security to Josh, his temporary body guard, only to have an alarm go off almost immediately. Here’s how he gets himself out of that mess…
From Undercover Star
The property manager turned up a second later, and Matisse waved airily. “Sorry ’bout that. I’m showing off your security, so Josh here won’t worry so much.”
“So I see.” The man wasn’t smiling. He never was. He checked the cabinet was closed and nothing was missing. He didn’t question them. Or their right to be where they were.
“Are all the staff here like this?”
Undercover Star is a standalone, feel-good romance set in England and Scotland, featuring a reluctant pop star who’s not out, a detective trying his hand at being a bodyguard, plenty of adventure, and a happy ending. And this is what it’s all about:
It sounds like the stupidest idea in the history of stupid ideas. Detective Inspector Josh Ingram wants to find a deadly medieval locket and through it, a murderer. So why does his boss decide to team him up with Matisse Vervein, a pop idol many consider just a pretty face… and expect the two of them to hunt down an art thief?
Marissa Godwin, Matisse’s no-nonsense manager, isn’t stupid. Neither is her brother-in-law, Detective Superintendent Tim Montgomery. Each is looking out for a lonely man on the verge of quitting what he does best, and both believe that their charges would make a great team.
The attraction sizzling between Josh and Matisse is hard to miss, but there’s plenty of resentment, too. Focussed on pushing Josh and Matisse towards each other, Marissa and Tim haven’t imagined the kind of trouble a music star and a detective can find when they ditch their prejudices and accept that the attraction between them is mutual. Or how far each is prepared to go to prove it to the other.
