Hello, snippeteers! I hope you all have a lovely Saturday. My week was busy and just fractionally crazy. And…. I suddenly realised that I needed to start planning promotion, so I had to go and choose a release date for Undercover Star.
It’s going to be out on November 22nd. (and may all the angels help me!) If anyone has space on their blog for Matisse & Josh, I’d be most grateful. 🙂
So, let’s continue with a snip from Matisse & Josh’s story. To recap, Detective Inspector Josh Ingram is hunting an art thief. He needs the help of pop idol Matisse Vervein to get access to Kilbride House, where he’s set a trap for the thief. Here, the two are checking out the jewellery room at the venue.
From Undercover Star
Matisse focused on the curio cabinet, the raft of small items, and the simple lock. “If the things are valuable enough to attract a thief, they should secure them properly. You can open this with a hairpin.”
“Not.” Matisse pulled a pin from his boot and stuck it in the lock of the display case. Moments later, the lock clicked.
Then sirens started blaring.
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.
