I’m so excited to let those of you on the blog get the first peek at my upcoming release, JUDGMENT. I just love this cover, and I can’t wait to share Caity and Spense’s story with you. Here’s the blurb too- the book is now available for preorder on Amazon and Barnes and Noble but I think you’ll be the very first to see the blurb, before it’s even posted on retail sites.
Carey Baldwin, author of the thrilling novel, Confession, returns with a new story featuring two of her most beloved characters. Fans of dark psychological suspense will devour this riveting story of rivals caught in a killer’s twisted web.
When a coed falls prey to a sadistic killer, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy and Special Agent Atticus Spenser are called in to testify—one for the defense, one for the prosecution. With warring approaches on justice, these two rivals have been butting heads for years—both in the courtroom and out. And at first, this case appears to be no different.
But when a brutal attack leaves the accused man dead and Caity in critical condition, petty differences take a backseat to saving lives. As the lone survivor, Caity knows too much and the killer—a madman calling himself the Man in the Maze—is coming back for round two. Now, Caity and Spense must join forces to uncover the killer’s identity before Caity’s time—and luck—runs out.
And now for our Mary Behre winner!

Sad news. The woman who pioneered the genre of Romantic Suspense, Mary Stewart, died this month at the age of 97. While that’s a ripe old age for most, Mary’s loss to those of us at Kiss and Thrill is immeasurable. Lady Mary Stewart was one of the first authors to write female-centric novels that involved both mystery and romance.
She inspired all of us here at Kiss and Thrill and we know she inspired millions of readers and authors worldwide. If you get a chance to read one of her delightful books, like Madam Will You Talk?, Touch Not the Cat, This Rough Magic, or Nine Coaches Waiting, and the Merlin Chronicles, I believe you’ll find her books not only inspiring but a whole lot of fun. You can find out more about her life at MaryStewartNovels.com
On another note, please remember that we at Kiss and Thrill have assembled an auction basket for the Brenda Novak Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research.
This is a cause near and dear to our hearts. So many of our family and friends here at Kiss and Thrill have been affected by this terrible disease. So please go and bid on something — from jewelry to books to exciting vacations, there is something for everyone.
Our own gift basket features $125 in gift cards (including cards for jewelry, books, and starbucks), two items of clothing, two audio and seven print/digital books from Kiss and Thrill authors, a character naming, and a wonderful tote to carry everything in. You can find our basket HERE.
Finally, saving the best for last, the winner of Don and Renee Bain’s novel, Close -up on Murder is Bella! Congratulations. I know you will enjoy it very much.
Join us next Tuesday when our own Gwen Hernandez will be writing about military romance and special forces. Gwen’s book, Blind Fury, is fabulous, and being married to a military man, this is something she knows a lot about. I can’t wait to hear what she says.
Until then, have a super Memorial Day weekend! See you Tuesday!
