COTT: Becky Wade Wins Clash

Posted by Julie on July 5, 2016 in About Me, COTT, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, Writing |



Congratulations to Becky
Wade

and her novel
Her One and
Only
for taking home this month’s Clash crown!
PURCHASE
 
About the book:
After ten years in the NFL, super star Gray Fowler is accustomed to
obsessive fans. But when Gray starts receiving death threats from a
stalker, his team hires an executive protection agency to guard him until
the culprit is caught. Dealing with bodyguards 24/7 is a headache,
especially when one of them is a young, beautiful woman. How can a female
half his size possibly protect him better than he can protect himself?
Dru Porter is a former Marine, an expert markswoman, and a black belt–none
of which saved her from disaster on her last assignment. In order to
rebuild her tarnished reputation, she’s determined to find Gray’s stalker
and, since relationships between agents and clients are forbidden, avoid a
romantic attachment between herself and the rugged football player with the
mysterious past.
Yet every secret that leads Dru closer to the stalker also draws her closer
to Gray. As the danger escalates, they’ll survive only if they can learn to
trust their lives — and their hearts — to one another.
Becky also has a FREE book sale going on RIGHT NOW!
Undeniably Yours
