It's always a rush for me to have a new book come out, but I'm especially excited about the upcoming release of EVEN IF IT KILLS HER (October 31). It's my seventh Bailey Weggins mystery, the first in five years (jeez, what was I thinking waiting this long?), and New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter says, "It entertains and excites from the very first page---I dare you to put it down."

First, a big thank you to all of you who have sent me emails or posted on Facebook saying how much you're looking forward to the new Bailey mystery. Your support means so darn much.

Secondly, I'd be thrilled if you bought EVEN IF IT KILLS HER and particularly appreciative if you pre-ordered the book. Why is pre-ordering so important? I don't understand all the workings of publishing, but according to those in the know, lots of pre-orders really help a book build momentum. I guess it's a little like those cool friends who make sure they show up at your party on the early side so it gets going fast and turns into a smashing success!

Pre-order by tapping one of the links below! Thanks so much!

I am thrilled to have my story, Covert Hearts, included in SECOND CHANCES: A ROMANCE WRITERS OF AMERICA COLLECTION. When RWA posted a call for submissions, I knew I wanted in.

Nate's world upended when his father became unemployed after Saint James Development lost funding to build a luxury home community. His family retreated to Indiana to live with Grandma. After years of struggle, they've returned to California. Despite everything, Nate hopes he'll encounter his covert crush, Sailor Saint James. He can't believe his luck when on the first day of school, he sees her. She has no idea who he is, and claims to be someone else. But Nate knows it's her.

Can Sailor and Nate overcome the past and get a second chance?

Lyn Cote

Do you judge a book by its cover? Well, yes, most of us do. As the author--it's my duty to make sure my book covers ATTRACT readers.

My book cover for AUTUMN'S SHADOW began to look a shopworn to me so I asked my newsletter subscribers and my Facebook readers about a new look. It appears that they agreed with me! Thanks to a generous outpouring of candid opinions, I chose a new cover for AUTUMN'S SHADOW.

However, you know how it is. You change one piece in a room and then you end up painting the whole room, new carpet, curtains, etc.

So I ended up refreshing the other two covers in the series. If you'd like to see them too, drop by my website and click Lyn's Books-Suspense.

BTW, in September AUTUMN'S SHADOW with its brand new cover is being offered in my monthly giveaway. Click here to enter.--Lyn Cote

The near death experience awakens the spark of life inside of her. So does the man in the car. A different kind of a spark.

For her safety, Dakota persuades her to move into the compound with him and the rest of the Legendary family while they track down the killers.

Bailey is forced to accept Dakota's help. But can she stay safe long enough for the police to track down the killer? Or is the man who almost ran her over going to steal her heart?

"Gloriously suspenseful...magnificent reading...Martin is superb." ---RT Book Reviews

SCENT OF ROSES, a contemporary romantic suspense, is being re-issued in September with a fabulous new cover. It's a ghost story with a sexy bad-boy hero.
