For many authors, February is the time to promote their steamy romance novels or their tearjerkers with the romantic happy ending. Unfortunately for me, none of my mystery/thrillers neatly fall into a romance category. Readers of the Mike Stoneman Thriller series know that there is plenty of romance in the relationships between Mike and MIchelle and between Jason and Rachel. But those are subplots -- important ones, but still subplots. The book that has the most romantic elements in the main plot is Lethal Voyage, where most of the characters on the Colossus of the Ocean are ready for love, or at least sex. If you have not yet taken the cruise, then you're in luck! Just in time for Valentine's Day, and through Feb. 19th, Lethal Voyage is available from Amazon for your Kindle for just 99-cents! You'll see the ad and button to click below. Enjoy your trip to Bermuda with Mike and his crew!
Also below is an exclusive free offer on the new release by international best-selling author Dan Alatorre and more great offers from other indie authors.

Several Tampa media personalities were known for their “hit pieces” about public figures. Now they’re known for being murdered - and anyone they trashed could be a suspect.
Detectives Carly Sanderson and Sergio Martin, co-workers and secretly lovers, are assigned to hunt for a deranged killer, together but separately: Carly must operate from headquarters to show her oversight skills; Sergio is in the field, but is saddled with a beautiful and headstrong young image consultant who’s been tasked with fixing the department’s profile.
When the killer livestreams his intentions to widen his pool of victims, public pressure to find him skyrockets. But internal office politics hamstring the investigation, forcing partners Carly and Sergio to work around the clock - and around the rules - to uncover the connections the victims share with their killer.
