Kiss of Death Blog Tour

Love on Laird Avenue
By Cindy A. Christiansen
Who said it would be easy for Tatum to leave her over-protective father, buy a 1911 bungalow, and start her own business at the same time? When things fall apart, literally, she hires a hunky home restoration specialist named Ryan to come to her rescue. She never dreamed he’d have his own ideas about protecting her...namely sabotaging her dates.

Cindy is graciously giving a copy of Love on Laird Avenue to one lucky person today.  Please leave a comment and an email so I can get a hold of you.  

Romantic Suspense: Always a New Twist
By Cindy A. Christiansen

Romantic suspense. Even the title arouses excitement. And that’s just what romantic suspense does—stimulates and exhilarates the reader’s senses. There’s no better romance to read…or write. Not only does the reader have the conflict and climax of the hero and heroine finally coming together and joining forces, but the apprehension throughout the book of some pending doom. Suspense can either be an action/adventure, mystery, thriller, on-the-run or woman-in-jeopardy. It doesn’t matter, as long as the reader experiences a suspended state of uncertainty.
Romantic suspense is considered one genre, but a reader could read a thousand authors and never find two that have the same idea of what suspense means to them. Guaranteed, you’ll be taken on a masterful ride of romance interwoven with a state of incertitude. Hold on to your hats and ride the fast-paced rollercoaster known as romantic suspense.

Cindy is one of the many talented authors who belong to the Romance Writers of America’s Kiss of Death chapter. At Kiss of Death we believe that every great romance should include suspense. Whether a spy thriller in Regency times, a paranormal romance with a revenge-seeking zombie, or a traditional serial killer after the heroine, romance relies on suspense, leading the reader through the trials of the heroine and hero to see if they will get their happily ever after ending. If you can call your writing suspenseful, then the Kiss of Death has something for you! Find out more and join at http://www.rwamysterysuspense.org and follow us on Twitter at @RWAKissofDeath.
