Peek Inside A Shot of Red

During the launch of Moncure Therapuetics’ new flu vaccine, Mia Moncure is rocked by news that the public relations director at her family's company has been found dead. A cryptic video warns her that something is amiss with the vaccine, and convinces Mia that his death wasn’t accidental. Desperate for backup, she turns to Gio Lorenzo, communications director for a high-ranking senator. Mia and Gio race to uncover a deadly scheme that threatens to ruin her family’s company. But time is running out. Millions of people are being vaccinated, and any of them could be the next to die.

After fleeing DC following a one-night stand that had her reeling, biotech company heiress Mia Moncure has thrived working with a humanitarian aid team administering vaccines in Haiti. When the United States is threatened with a flu epidemic, Mia’s grandmother demands her return to unveil a new flu vaccine for Moncure Therapeutics. She arrives to find that her ex-boyfriend, the company’s PR Director, has died in a suspicious accident in Switzerland that Mia soon suspects was murder.

Determined to reveal a killer, Mia heads to Switzerland, where she’s threatened as she discovers a plan to infiltrate the vaccine for nefarious purposes. Desperate for backup, she turns to sexy Gio Lorenzo, Communications Director for her mother, a high-ranking senator—and Mia’s one-night stand. While negotiating their rocky relationship, they race to uncover a deadly scheme that could ruin her family’s reputation. But millions of people are being vaccinated, and there’s more than her family’s legacy at stake. Mia and Gio struggle to discover the truth about the scheme and their feelings for each other, but it just might be too late.



A Night Owl Reviews TOP PICK! "One of the best romantic suspense novels I have read in a while. The suspense is super tense. The characters are real and easy to relate to, and the chemistry between Gio and Mia is hot, hot, and hotter. The plot has many twists and turns--some that will leave you gasping for air--and the premise is utterly chilling." ~ Night Owl Reviews

Shelf Unbound Magazine's Roses are Read Book Club Selection ''One of the most entertaining page-turners I've ever read. Interesting female lead character, gripping plot, compelling romance, and some very steamy sex scenes--plus a surprise ending." ~ Margaret Brown, Publisher of Shelf Unbound

"A thriller, mystery, romance, adventure story, and that's just the beginning. Well written, intricately plotted and wonderfully twisty. This is a fast paced, very intense thriller, with love scenes hot enough to curl your toes. This story really has it all my friends. Do yourself a favor and don't miss a second of it!" ~ The Reading Café
