BLUE DIAMOND DEATH now has the distinction of being selected for Library Journal's curated SELF-e collection.

A woman in danger: Gemologist and jewelry designer Kathleen McGuire has no intention of falling for another man in law enforcement - a man who wants to be her hero. Her shattered heart cannot endure any more pain. But anonymous threats against her life push her to the brink, and she reluctantly accepts the help and protection of handsome Mike Ryan, a federal agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Though attraction sizzles between them, Kathleen fights temptation and desire. She is a long-term relationship kind of woman, and Mike is a short-term commitment kind of guy - until one night changes everything.

A man who vows to protect her: Working a drug-related money-laundering case in the sun-drenched seaside community of La Jolla, California, Special Agent Mike Ryan needs a confidential informant familiar with the jeweler he's investigating. Beautiful Kathleen McGuire isn't who he had in mind for the job, but what she knows could break his case wide open. Arresting drug traffickers and their scummy, money-laundering partners is a mission to Mike, but when a stalker's threats against Kathleen escalate, Mike makes protecting her his priority. Before long, he finds himself emotionally entangled with Kathleen, his heart and his future in as much danger as Kathleen's life.

BLUE DIAMOND DEATH, a sensual contemporary romantic suspense novel, has approximately 64,200 words and is about 265 pages in length.
