If you were stranded on an island what 10 things would you most want with you?
Hi there! I’m Michelle Grey, author of the Long Shot Series. It’s early summer, which means it’s getting hot here in the Midwestern US. When it’s hot, I’m generally thinking of the beach, so I get to share 10 things I would most want with me if I were stranded on an island.
These aren’t in any particular order, but since this is my fantasy, I get a few liberties… J
1) Sunscreen (duh)
2) Lots of Water
3) Chris Hemsworth (if he were single, and not pining away for his gorgeous wife)
4) My Kindle with wifi and an unlimited 1-click option
5) Unlimited supply of Diet Coke
6) A resort style home with staff (this is starting to feel less like I’m stranded, and more like I’m planning my next vacation)
7) Fresh fruit, perfect for garnish on my foo foo drinks. So…
8) Stuff for foo foo drinks
9) The people I like
10) A jet on-call for when (if ever) I wanted to come back home
Now, I’m seriously thinking I need to get to a beach…soon…
Thanks for letting me stop by!
ABOUT THE BOOK
by Michelle Grey
GENRE: Romantic Suspense
Nothing comes between Tori Whitlock and her tornado chase season -- not a serial killer, not even the hot FBI agent who’s vowed to save her life. But Detective Jack Mathis plays tough. Ending this case isn’t just his job, it’s his mission. And he finally has the advantage.
He faces Tori’s hostility and objections head-on, interjecting himself into every aspect of her life, and leaving him no time to dwell on his own.
Through the twists and turns of the madman’s game, Tori is forced to adapt to her unwelcome circumstances. Still, she fights Jack's presence, and her attraction to him, as he tries to open doors better left closed.
For Tori and Jack, life and death decisions are part of their jobs. But, can they overcome their pasts and realize that there’s a difference between life and living?
Scooting the chair next to the bed, her pale fingers skimmed his arm as memories assailed her. Memories of smiles, of good times they’d had despite everything, and she realized just how far Jack had destroyed her defenses. She’d never let anyone in to the level she’d let him in, not even Cam.
Her shoulders shook as quiet sobs filled the room. She laid her head next to his hand, her fingers curling around his cool ones as the fear and the guilt worked its way through her heart and flowed down her cheeks.
“Thank you for saving me, but you should’ve run, Jack. You should’ve called the cops. Anything but this.”
She lifted her head and studied his face, memorizing the tiny lines around his eyes, remembering how they crinkled when he laughed. She stood and carefully traced his forehead and down the length of his jaw.
Replaying their last conversation in her head, she stumbled on the conviction in his eyes when he said they could build something amazing.
“If I knew how, I would love you.” She whispered, the words foreign on her tongue. “You made me want to believe impossible things. But, I’m a mess, Jack. You deserve so much more.”
With a shuddering sigh, Tori wiped her tears and forced her unwilling fingers to release his hand. She didn’t look back as she walked out of the room.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Michelle Grey is an avid lover of books, and had always thought that someday she would take up her pen and write romantic suspense. In 2009, Michelle was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer, and she realized that “somedays” aren’t guaranteed. This life changing event motivated Michelle to pursue her dream of becoming an author.
In January of 2013, Michelle released her debut novel, Dangerous Ally.
In September of 2013, the next book in her Long Shot Series, Unspoken Bonds, was published.
Now a cancer survivor, Michelle decided to use her platform to promote awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms. In January 2014 she published, Are You Listening: A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor.
Because it is so important to spread the word, one hundred percent of the proceeds from this $.99 ebook go directly to the Vicki Welsh Ovarian Cancer Fund to support their mission of fighting ovarian cancer through awareness, education, research and support.
Michelle lives in the Midwestern US with her husband of twenty-eight years and has four amazing and unique children, a wonderful son-in-law, and two beautiful granddaughters. Michelle believes that any day that involves family, writing, or reading is a great day, indeed.
