About Moxie Girl Musings

Moxie Girl Musings is about starting over from square one after tragedy impacted my young family. It's filled with stories of triumph, struggle, snafus, hopes, and dreams. Sometimes there will be features from other writers that I like and every so often I'll include an original short story, but normally I simply write what's on my mind at the time. Welcome to my unfiltered true-life story as I figure out this thing called life. http://www.amberleaeaston.com

One Little Lie Leads to A Whole Lotta Trouble #ScintillatingSunday #RomanticSuspense

They're tempting Fate with a lie...
Peeking inside One True Thing 

Excerpt of the newly released romantic suspense novel, One True Thing...

“You couldn’t resist me?” There were times in life when she’d let opportunity fly past her, clung to the rules of propriety that had been drummed into her head since birth, but not often. Rarely, in fact. Thank God. 

In one quick move, he pulled her against his chest and devoured her lips with his. Like a wild animal released after years in captivity, his passion overwhelmed her, consumed her. He fell back against the wall, lifting her tight against him, one hand at the back of her head, the other at her hip. 

Tongues clashed in an age-old dance. Deep, low moans rattled from their chests.  Her fingers wrapped themselves in the ends of his hair; the thickness of it intoxicated her. She wanted more, craved his heat, needed his body claiming hers, hungered for the taste of his skin under her mouth. Thinking wasn’t possible.

The elevator doors opened with a ding.  

Chests heaving against one another, they pulled a fraction away. Breath tangled with breath. Their eyes met, communicating surprise and regret. 

“Going down?”  Pam asked from the opening of the elevator.  

“Not quite yet,” Vanessa replied, a slow smile curving her lips as she smoothed the velvet over her hips.  “Maybe later.”        
She looked at Nic and winked, hiding the nerves that jumped beneath her skin.  When in doubt, fake an attitude. Works every time.

From the back cover...

One little lie leads to a whole lot of trouble.

Reclusive international resort developer, Dominic Piazza, needs a date to ward off his matchmaking parents. When he persuades the notorious Vanessa Warren to play his girlfriend for the night, he has no idea he's stepped into the crosshairs of kidnappers who will do anything—destroy everything—to get to her.

Power...it's a heady drug.

Vanessa Warren is America's favorite rebel. Daughter and granddaughter of US Presidents and sister to a future one, her family connections and notoriety are seen as leverage for manipulating the White House—if she's captured.

One true thing...

Trapped in a rapidly escalating international terror plot, Dominic and Vanessa's lie becomes the only real thing in the midst of betrayals, conspiracies, and murder. As their world falls apart, they suddenly only have each other to rely on against ruthless people who will stop at nothing to achieve their goal. Who can they trust? Who is behind the plot—her own family, a political rival of her family's, or a terrorist organization? How far will the kidnappers go—what will they be willing to sacrifice—to control the power of the White House? Is there anywhere in the world where they can find safety?
