Just for Halloween, a suspense-filled excerpt from the romantic suspense thriller, My Very Special Agent. I hope you enjoy the excerpt and have a spooky Halloween! BOO! My Very Special Agent is available from Amazon in Kindle and ebook, and also directly from Red Rose Publishing at this purchase link: http://redrosepublishing.com/books/product_info.php?products_id=577


The following excerpt is rated PG:


The first light of morning gently woke me from the warm comfort of slumber. Maggie was there beside me, still asleep. She was beautiful. I wondered if I was dreaming. All the years I had spent alone, waiting for her, and now she was here, and she loved me. I loved her beyond words.

I slowly got up, not wanting to wake her, and pulled on my jeans and shirt. I went outside and stood on the front porch, admiring the magnificence of the sunrise. It was going to be another beautiful day. I had just turned to go back inside when a shot rang out through the thin morning air and a bullet tore through a log at the corner of the front of the cabin. I flew in the doorway, slammed the door, and locked it.


Maggie sat up with terror in her eyes. “Oh my God, no, no. It's him, I know it's him.”


“Maggie, go upstairs now and lock your door!”


“Not without you. We can call the police from the bedroom.”


“Maggie, I know what I’m doing. You go up and lock the door. I have to radio headquarters, and they'll alert the local authorities. I'll be up in two minutes, I promise. Now go! Now!”


Finally she ran up the stairs.


After I radioed headquarters, I grabbed my gun and ran upstairs. I only knocked once before the door flew open and a frightened Maggie flew into my arms. I pushed her back into the room and slammed the door, locking it.


I crouched down below the front window and slowly rose to peer outside. An orange form caught my eye. A man in an orange hunting suit was walking towards the cabin.


He stopped about fifteen feet in front of the porch and yelled, “I'm really sorry, man. It was an accident.”


Cautiously, I opened the window and yelled down to him. “What the hell are you doing shooting so close to the house? This is a restricted area and I'm a federal agent. I don't want to see you around here again. You could have killed me!”


“My rifle misfired, buddy. I'm really sorry. You won't see me again.” And he walked off down the hill and was gone.


“It's okay now, Maggie. It was just a hunter. I radioed the agency. I think I'll let the sheriff show up and give him a statement about the hunter, just to be on the safe side.” I looked up to see Maggie cowering in the corner. I quickly went to her, pulled her close, and held her in my arms.

Drum roll, please. And the winner is...

This was soooooooooo difficult because there were so many really good entries, BUT I was finally able to select a winner. Linda Henderson is the contest winner with her entry of the location Durango, Colorado. I thought about the dramatic mountains and lakes and I especially liked the idea of the railroad and how I could write really suspenseful scenes in that setting and have something happen on the train. Congrats. Linda! Please send me an email (lizzie0412@ hotmail dot com) and include your postal address. Please put CONTEST winner in the subject line of the email. Your Autumn Splendor gift package and a surprise gift will be sent out next week. I will also email you an adobe document (ebook) copy of Agent Of Mercy.

Thanks to everyone who entered and please continue to follow the blog. Next month I'll be having another contest just as wonderful as this one!


Coming early next year- Ruby Stone in Danger In Paradise

Special Agent Series News from Betty Ann



I hope you've all been enjoying your summer. Can you believe it's almost the end of August? 

I must apologize for being MIA for most of the summer but I had some family personal business that I had to take care of.  

The winner of the Name the Next Special Agent Contest who submitted Ruby Stone, never contacted me. I still have your prize gift to send you, so please contact me so I can get your spa gift pack with a signed copy of Eureka Point off to you. I am currently busy writing Ruby Stone, my first female agent!

I'm going to re-start the Pick the Location of the Next Book in the series. The guidelines for your submission to keep in mind are: it should be a seaside, lakeside or mountainess location. It can be real or fictional. Please submit your entries as a comment. I will announce the winner on September 15th. 

Agent of Mercy, which released on April 22nd, is STILL a Suspense/Mystery BESTSELLER at Red Rose Publishing, thanks to many of you. I really do appreciate my fans. I'm hoping that Ruby Stone will be as popular, but I think girl power will pervail! Ruby is a multi-faceted character and I'm sure you will like her.

A NEW CONTEST to celebrate the upcoming release of Agent Of Mercy!

In celebration of the upcoming release of the 4th book in The Special Agent Series, I've decided to have another awesome contest! Agent Of Mercy will be released at Red Rose Publishing, this Thursday, April 22nd.

The previous contest winner has already selected the name of the next special agent, Ruby Stone. That book is being written at this time and the location has already been written in. BUT, I will continue to write this series for as long as I keep coming up with these stories in my mind. SO, there will be another story after Ruby Stone. Therefore, this contest will be for you, the fans, to enter a location for the book after Ruby Stone. It can be real or made-up. If you make up the name of the place, please briefly describe it (ie. waterfront, oceanfront, mountainess, weather conditions, etc.) You may enter as a comment once per day until May 1st. I will announce the winner on May 2nd. 

The winner will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to either Red Rose Publishing or Barnes & Noble.  Also, anyone who purchases the ebook, Agent Of Mercy, on the release date of April 22nd, will receive a surprise thank-you gift in the mail. And those of you who have received a gift from me before know I send good goodies!

Have fun!

And the winner is...

Thanks to all the fans who participated in the contest to name the next special agent. All of the entries were good and I did have a tough time deciding, but in the end, Susan Leech's entry of Ruby Stone won out. I just love the name. And you know it's a female name, so that means the next special agent will be non-other than Ruby Stone, a beautiful and awesome agent-investigator. 

Susan, please contact me by an email to:  lizzie0412@hotmail.com    and provide me with you postal address, and your autographed copy of Eureka Point and spa pack will be sent to you next week.

And please remember fans, Special Agent Sam Blake will make his debut when Agent Of Mercy is released at Red Rose Publishing on Thursday, April 22nd. Anyone who purchases the (e)book on the day of its release and sends me confirmation of their purchase, will be sent a very special thank you gift!
