With only five short days until the release of To Protect and Love I thought I’d share another excerpt with you from this highly anticipated box set of award winning and best selling authors.

 

Today’s guest is Chantel Rhondeau. Chantel has been awesome. She’s our guiding light through the maze of social media promotion. This is my second box set I’ve been in with her and I can’t tell you how much I’ve learned.

Chantel rocks!

 

Crime&Passion Chantel Rhondeau

 

A decorated police officer, more intent on justice than following the letter of the law, lands in trouble when a gorgeous schoolteacher finds a dead body on the beach.

 

Excerpt:

Madeline unlocked the door to Woofy Cuts, stifling a yawn. The cheery bell Lindsey placed above the door greeted her as she entered. Early morning sunlight barely penetrated the gloom of the shop. She rushed to the alarm to turn it off.

That’s strange. The alarm wasn’t beeping, and the green light shone steadily. Lindsey said she would check on Brutus and walk him around eleven o’clock last night. Madeline had a hard time believing she didn’t set the alarm.

Then again, Lindsey used her birthday as the code—not exactly hard to crack. Madeline shuddered, wondering if Donovan was right to worry about her safety.

A shuffling sound from the right-hand side of the store caught her attention. Madeline cocked her head to the side, holding her breath as she listened intently. Silence.

It’s just my imagination running wild because of what Donovan said…I hope.

She gripped the pepper spray attached to her car keys, pressing her back against the wall before flipping on the light switch. When no one jumped out of the shadows, she allowed herself to breathe again. Still, perhaps he wanted the element of surprise and hid, waiting to attack her once she let her guard down.

As quietly as possible, she crept past the customer seating area toward the shelves holding pet supplies. The middle row was the only place to hide. Madeline’s heart hammered in her chest and her hands shook.

She tried to calm her erratic breathing. If someone waited on the other side of the shelf, he likely heard her ragged breaths. She’d have to surprise him by doing the unexpected.

Madeline sent up a quick prayer she wouldn’t drop the keychain and leapt forward to the row of shelves, discharging a preemptive strike with the pepper spray. The foamy substance flew through the air to land in the empty aisle.

“Great shot, Rambo.” She let out a shaky laugh. “You killed the doggie treats.”

Bestselling Author Chantel Rhondeau once thought a mystery or fantasy book with strong romantic themes was the highest level of reading bliss. After reading her first romantic suspense, she never looked back. Chantel is author of six romantic suspense novels, three Christmas novellas, a sports-themed novella, and the McCallister’s Paradise contemporary romance/family saga series. She lives in the western United States and when she’s not writing, she loves playing cards with her family, bowling on leagues, and snuggling with her lazy kitties.
