Another excerpt from my November release, ‘Her Only Option’.
Neve is irritated at being disturbed by a man, albeit rather an attractive one, on the neighbouring sundeck. Thinking he’s a smooth-talking poser trying to chat her up, she informs him she’s a tour guide – but is unprepared for his response …
“Oh, one of those.”
She bristled with indignation. Not just a cruise ship Casanova, but a rude one too. “And what’s that supposed to mean?”
“You hear them everywhere you go,” he replied with a small shrug, “usually churning out half-baked facts from poorly written and often inaccurate guide books.”
Her indignation flared into annoyance.
He's not doing himself any favours at the moment, is he?
‘Her Only Option’ will be released next Thursday, November 1st, by Whiskey Creek Press.
An advance review says "Once again, Paula has penned a wonderful tale incorporating a unique story line, romance and just the right amount of conflict for her characters. This is definitely a must read by the brilliant author Paula Martin."
Neve Dalton loves her job as a tour guide on a River Nile cruise ship as much as she values her independence. She isn’t ready to settle down with her Egyptian boyfriend, despite his repeated proposals and his father’s desire to see him married.
Nor is she ready to meet Ross McAllister, a compelling and fascinating archaeologist.She struggles against her growing attraction to him until she can no longer ignore what her heart is telling her. This is the man who sets her soul on fire.
When she starts receiving cryptic messages, and Ross’s work in the famous Valley of the Kings is threatened, Neve has to make a heart-breaking and life-changing decision which she feels is her only option.
Can they discover whose enmity is forcing them apart before it’s too late?
