A very exciting day today, the delivery man drove into my yard, knocked on my door and handed me this! A print version of Leah Braemel's PERSONAL PROTECTION.

It's not just getting a new book that excites me so much, but that I take (inordinate) pride in this series and this particular book. Leah and I have been friends and writing partners for longer than either of us will admit ;)

As I'm sure I've said before, we've shared laughs and tears, and made each other stronger for having shared not just our writing, but our lives. Part of that sharing has been my small part in the bouncing of ideas and reading and commenting on various versions of this book. (please understand I'm certainly claiming more credit than I'm due!) Being a involved on the fringes of Leah's success has kept me sane through my own writing frustrations as I can enjoy basking in the (unduly) rewarding glimmer of her limelight without having had to suffer a fraction of the work she's put into her career.

Leah has special talent to combine smart, sexy characters with complex plotting that keeps the reader panting for more as the tension rises (and releases!) between the characters. Personal Protection is the second in her Hauberk Protection series. You don't have to have read the first, the novella PRIVATE PROPERTY, in order to enjoy Personal Protection, but I promise once you've read one, you'll want the other.

*Hugs* It wouldn't have happened with you prodding/poking/pushing me to get my butt in the chair and my hands on the keyboard.

Thanks, Sue!

I'm sure it would have happened without me, I'm just tickled to get to be a part of it! (and now anxiously waiting on your new release!)
