It's finally here! I've been dying to show off this gorgeous cover, designed by the insanely talented, Hang Le. Paired beside Chris Williamson's handsome face on Ricochet's cover, these books are going to look so damn pretty on my bookshelf.
Before I get to the goods, I want to thank Eric Battershell for working with me and traveling to Florida to photograph the sexy model that I had to have for this cover. In fact, I'd gone through a number of images before I stumbled upon his, and I refused to consider anyone else for Backfire. He matched the face of Jase Hawkins so perfectly. Thank you to model, Johnny Kane, for being so awesome (and possessing some damn good genes). Follow him on Instagram for some ridiculously hot pics.
Many many thanks to Hang Le for being so patient and so wonderful - absolutely love working with her!
I also want to thank Book Slut Goddess from The Literary Gossip for recommending Eric!
Finally, I just want to mention that I wouldn't have considered a spin off to Ricochet, if not for the amazing support of the contemporary bloggers and my wonderful readers who encouraged me to write more of this genre. ❤
Okay, okay, I know what you came for, so without further delay, here is the cover and blurb for BACKFIRE.

No matter how unbreakable he may seem, every man has a weakness.
A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an underground prison to die.
They failed. I survived.
Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.
Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold, merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.
Then she drifts into my life.
Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.
Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.
Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.
For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness, an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast plan backfire.
