MEDIA KIT HS_FinalCover_smallJenna Gregor is a busy, single mom of two, successfully overseeing a Perinatal Wing in a downtown Nashville clinic. On the surface, Jenna’s achievements are many, her future bright and promising. But in her past are secrets, sins she doesn’t want exposed. Sins someone else doesn’t want to forget, or forgive.

Just as Jenna’s life finally seems to be falling back into place after her bitter divorce—Bennett Aston can handle her sarcasm and stubbornness quite nicely—it all begins to unravel. Someone is lurking, hiding in theshadows, slowly and meticulously ruining Jenna’s well-crafted world. As threats evolve, suspicions grow, and death becomes a vivid reality, Jenna must decide whom she can trust and find her allies, before her secrets become her undoing.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Desiree sat alone in the shadows of the dimly lit room.

She was lonely, heartbroken, frustrated, but most of all, angry. It possessed her, consumed her. And it wasn’t the pure old-fashioned mad where a good long walk could blow off the steam, it was fury. The desperate kind—the kind that drove you mad and pushed you to hate.

The hate had pushed her to depression, then shoved her to obsession.

How could I have failed once more? The voice in her head sounded whiney, even to her own mind. That irritated her too.

She heaved a sigh, slouched lower in the lone chair furnishing her current home, careful that her foot did not touch the sliver of sunlight filtering through the flimsy curtain. She didn’t want any part of the light. Only darkness.

Only shadows.

She deserved them after another failure. She’d been certain her plan was foolproof. Certain that after bouncing from hospital to hospital in the last five years, she had formulated a cunning and clever plan. A plan that has yet to be executed, she mulled with a surge of annoyance.

Though execution had been her exact intent this morning when she stepped out of her dingy room.

She’d been ready. Ready and willing to take what wasn’t hers and make it become hers. But that chipper little nurse ruined it all. She’d come in just as Desiree was grabbing that beautiful newborn from her warm pink blankets and soft bed.
