Hard to believe

Shot in Darkness: Another Cover Reveal Plus Hints of What’s Coming

Things are moving so fast these days! Seriously fast! Shot in Darkness, an In Darkness novella, is in the final stages of production. This novella was written for a special anthology that will be available at the Romance Times Booklovers Convention. It is Book Four in the In Darkness series and will release in all formats on August 30, 2017 (unless you’re one of the lucky ones to receive it early at the RT Convention). I’m not kidding when I say: I LOVE THIS STORY. So much of Romeo is revealed in this novella. Also, Brooke comes face to face with some of her demons and must decide: Is love worth fighting for? Or must she set it free in order to protect it?


Intelligence analyst and former FBI special agent Brooke Fairfax is on the run. Not from anything sinister, but from her past. She’s hiding from Declan O’Roark after he proposed a question she simply wasn’t ready to answer. She finds solitude in Washington D.C. where she struggles to reconcile her feelings about her late husband and a possible future with Declan. Within hours, Declan tracks her down, desperate to save the relationship.

After establishing a tenuous truce, Brooke and Declan meet a suspicious man outside a Georgetown neighborhood bar. Terror begins to unfold just as Brooke realizes the man’s intentions. But what appears to be yet another random shooting spree turns out to be a highly targeted act. Brooke’s and Declan’s lives will be changed forever — if they’re lucky enough to escape.


This story is a thrilling, fast paced addition to the series, but do not underestimate it’s size. Though it’s shorter and will be priced less than the full-length novels in the series, it will packs a huge punch, and will be a must-read for lovers of Brooke’s and Declan’s story and anyone who wants a smaller taste of what this series is all about. And by the time you read this one, you’ll be begging me for Book Five.

Cover Reveal: Covered in Darkness

I couldn’t be more excited about the cover for book three of the In Darkness series. This cover by the extraordinarily talented Jessica Bell beautifully illustrates the opening scenes of Covered in Darkness, when a severe thunderstorm “reportedly” takes down part of the electric grid.

Now the Director of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security, Brooke Fairfax has one objective: Stay on top of all threats to the people and property of the Commonwealth. The position is thankless and never-ending. It even pulls her out of Declan O’Roark’s bed in the middle of the night.

A power grid failure has struck Kentucky’s largest city and Brooke assumes the role of lead coordinator for the investigation. The power outage pushes the city to the brink of chaos. Police, fire, and rescue workers are overwhelmed—their efforts crippled by failed communication systems, looters ransacking businesses, hospitals running on emergency generators, and people desperate to find safety in a city quickly eroding into lawlessness.

While experts scramble to restore the grid before thousands lose their lives, Declan receives word from an intelligence contact that an eastern European cell of cyber terrorists are looking to take down the power grid for the entire Eastern Seaboard. Brooke and Declan must combine their efforts before the next attack. Just as Brooke and Declan get close to the truth, the attackers turn their attention on stopping their greatest threat—Brooke and Declan.

The Day a Reviewer Compared Me to Nora Roberts / J.D. Robb

I have loved Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb (who just happen to be the same person, in case you didn’t know) for a very, very long time. I’m pretty sure my mother introduced me to Nora Roberts’ books when I was old enough to read adult romance. Maybe even before, if truth be told. My mom was a huge fan of Danielle Steele, Sydney Sheldon, Nora Roberts, Mary Higgins Clark, and I’m sure many others. Those are the ones that stick out the most though. Out of those, I fell in love with Nora Roberts the most as a reader.

When I decided to start writing my own books, I started asking myself what, exactly, made me like my favorite authors. With Nora Roberts, it was her way of developing characters so completely that I felt like I knew them intimately. For example, I’m pretty sure I have nothing in common with Eve Dallas of J.D. Robb’s In Death series, however, I’m also fairly certain I would enjoy drinking with her any night of the week after work.

What’s my point? My point is that when someone even comes close to comparing me to my hero in the romantic suspense genre, I tend to get a little giddy like a five-year-old little girl who just got her first bike without training wheels.

Aishwarya Saxena of At Least I’m Well-Read says this in her review of Exposed in Darkness (click on the link to read the entire review):

“Right after I finished her (J.D. Robb’s) latest, Echoes In Death,  I was left wanting more. Thankfully, I had a copy of Heather Sunseri’s foray into romantic suspense, Exposed in Darkness, and I am so happy to have found a new favourite author in the genre.”

She also said:

“… there were a lot of questions left unanswered and I, for one, am eagerly waiting for Ms Sunseri’s next book in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the romantic suspense genre but especially to my fellow In Death superfans.”

So yeah… I’m in love with this review for simply suggesting that fans of J.D. Robb’s In Death series will enjoy the In Darkness series.

Oh, and by the way, what Aishwarya means by “questions left unanswered” has nothing to do with a cliffhanger, so don’t think that at all. This story is a complete story. But the character’s lives do continue into a series, so there is still more info to come.
