It’s launch week for my women’s fiction novel, The Lone Wolf! Yay!
After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.
In today’s excerpt, Kasey and her husband David had a fight earlier in the day over him being too controlling and putting work first, and he’s trying to make it up to her: afternoon at a spa, diamond necklace, and now this.

Well written eight and sad with her doubts and fears. Wow! You nailed it.
aww, so bittersweet. You definitely make readers care about your characters. I’d love to know exactly what she’s thinking.
Nice snippet. It’s a good glimpse into the complexity of her character–and her situation. Nicely done. :-)
I think you portrayed every emotion she’s feeling perfectly. Despite the romantic gesture, it’s clear to see there’s so much missing. Well done, and happy release week! :)
Very intense. He’s done some serious damage, and dinner and roses won’t make it all the pain and distrust just disappear.
Her reaction is fascinating, intrigues me to read more. Excellent excerpt!
