*** Giveaway Alert***


Joining us today is Rionna Morgan.  Growing up out West, Rionna Morgan followed her love of horses to the rodeo arena and her love of English to the classroom and to writing.  She has been looking forward to sharing her stories with you her whole life.  Rionna is a founding member of Montana Romance Writers; she reads as much as she can possibly hold, and she loves most of all combining the chilling edge of a knife with the sweet surrender of romance. Rionna shares her home in Missoula, Montana with her husband, her four children and the mountains outside her window.

I am here today with Annie, Sarah’s best friend from Love’s Justice.  Annie has worked with Sarah for years and probably knows her better than anyone else.

Marilyn:  Tell us about Sarah.
Annie:  She’s brave and stubborn and doesn’t always listen to me.  She does put up with me and my silliness though. 

Marilyn:  What’s her biggest weakness?
Annie:  I think this could be said for many of us when it comes to family.  But, for Sarah, I think it’s different.  Losing her mother at such a young age has stunted many of her emotions.  She does not love easily, nor does she trust easily, especially when it comes to sharing her family’s past. 

Marilyn:  What is her biggest strength?
Annie:  Her honor.  She will follow something through even if it seems fruitless just because it is the right thing to do.  Knowing what I know about her mother, I believe she gets this from her.




Thank you, Annie!  Read on for a bit more about Rionna Morgan's just released Romantic Suspense from Crimson Romance!   




Look for Love’s Justice anywhere online books are sold!



Sarah Johnson is a profiler in Portland, Oregon. She thinks she has successfully moved beyond the pain of her mother’s death 15 years ago.  Her mother, a Pulitzer Prize winning writer, died in an Alabama women’s prison while on an undercover assignment.  However, when Justin Breslow shows up at her office claiming to be an investigative reporter from Dallas wanting to do a feature on her mother, Sarah realizes the pain has just been dormant.  She agrees to work with Justin; she’s always wanted to retrace her mother’s final days, but she has no intention of sharing family secrets with a perfect stranger.

Sarah and Justin unravel a plot more complex and sinister than they expected.  They pursue a trail of 
deceit and corruption to a women’s prison in Alabama, a centuries old hotel in Georgia and a family ranch in Texas. Nothing is simple or as it seems. Along the way, Sarah tries not to fall for Justin’s Southern charm, and Justin fights to resist Sarah’s beauty and sharp intellect.
This unlikely duo will find more than they ever hoped to—in the prison, in their own backyards, and in each other’s arms.  Whether they survive to enjoy their discoveries is the final mystery.

An Excerpt from Love's Justice

“What if I didn’t go as a snoopy reporter?” Justin closed the small space, successfully trapping Sarah between the refrigerator and the counter. “And just went as a man?”  With a smooth shift of his body, he slid into an amazing fit against her.

Sarah drew in a quick breath. The air-cooled kitchen suddenly became a furnace.

His hands gripped the counter on either side of her. His face was so close she could see her reflection in his eyes.

“That is exactly what I don’t need.”

“Don’t need, but maybe want?”  Justin moved closer. Their lips were just a breath apart.

“Don’t,” Sarah breathed. Her heart rapped hard in her chest.

Justin smiled, enjoying watching her eyes cloud to darkness. This was going to be easy.

“Don’t what.”  His lips brushed hers. “Tell me. Don’t what?”

Sarah fisted her hands in his shirt. To pull him closer or push him away, she wasn’t exactly sure. Panic and need and she didn’t know what all, tumbled around in her stomach. Instead of taking the time to decipher what to do, she just acted and tugged him to her.

He caught her bottom lip, soft and warm, between his teeth. He felt her body give against his. He savored the taste of her, the warmth.

“I’m going with you,” he whispered against her lips.

She nodded her head, but his words never registered.

My plan is working perfectly, he thought as he pulled her deeper into the kiss.
