Before we get to Christine's book, pour a cup of coffee and read about this fantastic author.
C.B. Clark has always loved reading, especially romances, but it wasn't until she lost her voice for a year that she considered writing her own romantic suspense stories. She grew up in Canada's Northwest Territories and Yukon. Graduating with a degree in Anthropology and Archaeology, she has worked as an archaeologist and educator, teaching students from the primary grades through the first year of college. She enjoys hiking, canoeing, and snowshoeing with her husband and dog near her home in the wilderness of central British Columbia.
A few words from Christine:
In my part of the world, summer doesn't really begin until mid June when the days heat up, and the sweet smell of warm, rich earth, growing plants, and newly mown grass permeats the air. There's so much to look forward to...long, hot sunny days relaxing beside a crystalline lake, opening that book I finally have time to read, hiking along forest trails beneath a canopy of evergreen trees, swimming in a cool, clear lake, hamburgers sizzling over hot coals, sipping a cool drink (or two), and relaxing with friends as the days slow down. The warm nights in front of a campfire toasting marshmallows, or watching bats flit between the branches of the trees, and the stars sparkle in the night sky.
There are downsides to summer...oppressive heat and humidity, swarms of pesky bugs, sunburn, heat rash, wearing a swim suit and exposing all that well-fed flesh, long car trips, and crowded campsites. But that's all in the days ahead. Right now, today, as I sit outside on my desk and listen to the chirping of the birds, I breathe deep as every cell in my body embraces this new season.
Now that you know a little bit about C. B. Clark, let's find out about her book.
Awesome cover art, C.B!
C.B. has happily shared her blurb and an excerpt.
Sharla-Jean Bromley returns to her hometown after a seventeen-year absence with vengeance in her heart. From the very beginning, her plans go awry when she meets devastatingly handsome Josh Morgan, the man to whom her father left half of his multi-million dollar lumber mill.
Josh, suspicious of Sharla-Jean's reasons for returning to town after such a long absence, vows to keep control of the company he feels is rightfully his. She is equally determined to prove she can run her father's mill, even though it means working side-by-side with Josh, a man whose very presence evokes an attraction that is increasingly difficult for her to ignore. In the process, they must overcome a villain who's determined to destroy both the lumber mill and their lives.
Will Sharla-Jean succeed and heal the anguish that has long filled her soul? Will she and Josh find the passion of a lifetime?
