Welcome Guest Author - Melanie Atkins

Adventures in Moldavia would like to welcome fellow Desert Breeze Author, Melanie Atkins!
Book: Cherished Witness, September '09, Desert Breeze Publishing

Kelly Watson, aka Teresa Pastral, threw the Fifth Amendment out the window when she testified against her mob boss husband at his murder trial. Now divorced, she has begun a new life in the Witness Security Program. Only--the mob finds her, thanks to handsome lawman J.T. Romano, who uses her as bait to lure the man who murdered his wife and unborn child to town. To ensure her safety, she is forced to trust J.T., the man who has betrayed her to the mob. But can she also protect her heart?

Melanie's Note: I’m thrilled that the first book in my New Orleans Detective series, CHERISHED WITNESS, is available once again, this time at Desert Breeze Publishing. The book has been re-edited and lengthened, and I love the result. I’m so happy to be at Desert Breeze and look forward to the release of the other five books in the series:

PRIME SUSPECT -- February 2010

CHOSEN TARGET -- June 2010

BELOVED CAPTIVE --October 2010
