Happy Book Birthday to Deception So Deadly!

Tessa and Tristan, we did it!

It’s been a long, roller-coaster of a journey for the Deception So series, and starting today, that journey is finally getting the happy ending it deserves with the release of Book One, Deception So Deadly. My eternal love and gratitude to everyone who has supported me (and Tessa and Tristan!) along the way.

About the book

Winner of Romance Writers of America’s 2015 RITA© Award for Best First Book

RUN. It’s all sixteen-year-old Tessa Carson has ever known. Hunted by a telepathic killer, Tessa and her family have fled home after home, hiding behind aliases to survive. Her scars are more than just physical, and as the only one in her family without a psychic ability, she lives a life of secrets, lies, and fear.

After the Carsons flee to a new hideout and take on new identities yet again, Tessa meets confident, carefree Tristan Walker. Their attraction burns fierce, but she runs from him too, knowing their love can never be true when she can’t even tell him her real name.

But Tristan has secrets as well—secrets that will either save Tessa, or destroy her. The only way Tessa can save her family—and uncover the real reason they’ve been hunted all these years—is to forget everything she’s learned from a lifetime of running away, and run straight into danger head-on.

Book One in the YA paranormal thriller Deception So series, Deception So Deadly was originally published as the Run to You serial parts 1 – 3, and is the winner of the prestigious RITA© Award for Best First Book.
