Hey Everyone! Today I haveCheryl Ann Smith here talking about her new exciting series “Dead to Rights” with the first book in the series: Leading Her Witness. Cheryl will share a fun tidbit about Andie’s and Colins dynamic in the book, which I’m sure you’ll find as awesome as I did!
Top 5 Moments when Colin thought Andie was a “pain in the ass”
Only the top five? Colin calls her a pain in the ass from their first meeting! Without giving away the story, Colin is searching for a mob boss and is having trouble. He needs help and Andie has the ability to see things in a way he can’t. From their first meet, she tests him, exasperates him, and won’t do what he says. But the reader sees him go from calling her a pain in the ass as a dig to where it becomes sort of an endearment. I love that! It fits their story. I’d have to say the top five would be:
- When she first refuses to help him.
- When she investigates on her own and gets into trouble.
- When she gets them both shot at.
- Any time she challenges him. Which is often!
- The moment he realizes he falling for her and isn’t happy about it!
Leading Her Witness
Goons, deadbeats, and murder: A tenacious process server’s unconventional techniques get her into loads of trouble. So much so that her boss jokes that he keeps the coroner on speed dial just in case. Still, most of Andie Dixon’s job is pretty tame if she doesn’t count snapping dogs and homeowners squirting her with garden hoses.
That changes when she serves papers on a notorious crime boss and puts her life in real jeopardy. But despite this close call, Andie will not let threats keep her from doing her job. She puts the matter behind her until a hunky U.S. Marshal tracks her down and solicits her help to find the fugitive. Again. At first Andie adamantly refuses, but eventually agrees when she’s swayed by the Marshal’s persistence and rather dreamy brown eyes. However, when crime boss Sammy Gilroy, finds out she’s back and close on his heels, he threatens to make her disappear for good this time.
Marshall Colin Navarro needs to find Sammy Gilroy before the man vanishes forever. Colin is certain that the notorious crime leader was involved in a shoot-out with the FBI that injured his sister. But he never expected that he’d have to sway a newbie process-server to help, or that she’d turn out to be stubborn, aggravating, and an all-around pain in the ass. Yet despite her shortcomings, he cannot figure out why she’s taken over his thoughts and is front and center in some very hot fantasies. But can he keep her from getting herself killed as they edge closer to catching the fugitive? Then again, the crime boss and his goons don’t know who they’re messing with.
With Andie on the case, Colin is beginning to believe that justice may be served after all.
