Extracting precious gas from a deposit in North Carolina is a dirty, dangerous job. Geologist Cleo Cooper won't let the distraction of a dead body found near the drill sight interrupt her focus - until the county sheriff Cleo never wanted to see again arrives on the scene. Twenty-five years ago, tragedy fell on Cleo's family, creating a rift between her and her father that has never healed. And Sheriff Clyde Stuckey was the cause. Now Cleo can't help but remember the painful events she thought were buried by history as she tries to steer clear of a powerful man who's hell-bent on making her suffer.

Now that I'm about to see my first novel published and should feel satisfied, the truth is, I don't. Instead, I find myself chomping at the bit to create new adventures for Cleo, ones that stretch her abilities and thus mine. In short, I want to keep the fun rolling, with all the attendant thrills and excitement cranked up high, for the further enjoyment of both my readers . . . and myself.
