About the book:
There’s no shortage of deadly deeds in 1881 Chicago as school administrator Cady Delafield and entrepreneur Doyle Flanagan plan their wedding. When one of Doyle’s workers is brutally killed he must use his considerable power to stop a mysterious enemy bent on destroying his reputation and business empire. But as Cady and Doyle struggle to keep their marriage on track, the murder victims might not be the only casualties.
Joyce introducing the characters:
Hi. Thanks for joining me today. I’m so excited to be here to celebrate the release of A Burning Truth. I want to share with you some things about Cady and Doyle, whose love and exploits are featured in the ‘Truth’ series.
Meet Hero Doyle Flanagan ~
Cady’s first impression of Doyle: (Taken from A Deadly Truth)
“What are you doing here?”
She yelped and spun toward the blaring voice, heart pounding in her throat. A glowering man filled the doorway. Danger clung to him as tangible as the fur collared overcoat draped over his shoulders.
“I…ah…” She swallowed convulsively, her gaze riveted to the frightening man. Whiskers shadowed his strong chin while hair, black as oil, spilled in haphazard strands across his forehead.
“I asked you a question,” he sneered.
“She’s dead,” she whispered.
His blue eyes grew wild. “What?” He exploded into the room.
Cady shrieked and snatched a bronze statue from a nearby end table. “Don’t come any closer!”
Not a favorable first impression. Unfortunately, Doyle’s first glimpse of Cady wasn’t much better:
To his dismay, the bothersome woman took up residence in his favorite armchair, her back straight as a ruler and her resolve unshakable. Doyle sighed, resigned to the stubborn force in his library. Yet who knew? Perhaps she possessed information which might prove helpful. As it stood, he needed an abundance of help and luck to get him out of this mess. For now he considered her a mere stain among some very dirty laundry.
With such a horrid introduction, things had to get better if we hoped for a future for these two. In no time, Doyle was smitten. More skeptical, it took Cady a day or two longer to succumb to his charms. Here’s how A Burning Truth begins.
