Life was so simple—until she had to save one.
By the end of a long evening working as a special set of eyes for the presidential security detail, all Kat Marengo wants is to kick off her shoes and stash two not-really-stolen rings in a secure spot. Plus, maybe sleep with Dave Krizak. No, make that definitely sleep with Dave Krizak. The next morning, she wishes her new top priorities were so simple.
As an operative for a covert agency buried in the depths of the Department of Homeland Security, Kat is asked to participate in a matter of life or death—locate a kidnapped girl believed to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas. Since the person doing the asking is the wife of the president and the girl is the daughter of the first lady’s dearest friend, it’s hard to say no.
Kat and Dave quickly learn the real stakes are higher than they or the first lady believed and will require more than any of them bargained for.
The kicker? They have twenty-four hours to find the girl—or the matter of life or death will become more than a possibility.
Carol writes grocery lists, texts to her family, new lyrics to old songs for her dogs, love notes to her husband, and novels for herself. And for you. In between, she blogs weekly at Under the Tiki Hut and is active on Facebook and Twitter.
She sees mystery and subterfuge everywhere. And she’s a sucker for a good love story—especially ones with humor and mystery. Crime Fiction with a Kiss gives her the latitude to mix and match throughout the broad mystery and romance genres. Having flexibility makes her heart happy.

I made use of Captain Alex's cloning machine, so I could be two places at once. If you want to see where I ran off to, stop by The Open Vein, where E.J. Wesley is grilling me (he calls it 'interviewing') about my publishing experience.
Then head on over to Mina Lobo's blog, Some Dark Romantic. A word of caution, though... While I can vouch for my contribution to the post—a G-rated interview and an excerpt that's PG-13—I have no clue about Mina's. She's been know to post some steamy stuff and toss out a curse word or two. Enter at your own risk. ;)
[ETA: Mina's post is tame. I make no promises about the comments section, though.xD]
