What that actually means is that I have submitted the FINAL version to the publisher, so I am officially done! (Well, I still have to approve the proof of the print edition, but I'm sure it will be fine....I hope...)
It will be released in print and eBook August 5th.
Available NOW for Pre-Order on Kindle, Nook, and other eBook formats, and in hardback at a Special Pre-Sale Price.
But I know you want something to read NOW, so I have reduced the price of the eBooks of my Pride and Prejudice adaptations just until The Widow is released on August 5th. Pulse and Prejudice is only $2.99 and The Proud and the Prejudiced is half price at $1.49!
Now back to coming attractions...
Above I have a phote from a scene from the classic Hitchcock film Notorious, which is one of my favourite films of all time and is partly the inspiration for The Widow (or the second half at least); however, instead of Nazis, it is loosely based on the Sinaloa Cartel. My character “El Raton” is inspired by the notorious drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, whose daring escape from a maximum security prison last week has dominated headlines.
Drowning in wine and despair, Catherine would do anything to break free from the clutches of the cartel, but despite her desperate efforts, she can never escape the mistakes of her past that continue to haunt her.
Even though he cannot deny their mystical, mutual attraction, David must carry out his orders – from both the DEA and the Cartel – catching Catherine in a spider web of duplicity and deceit. How far will David go to bring down the cartel? If he succeeds in winning the widow’s trust, would he be willing to risk her life – or his heart?
PLEASE NOTE: Contains strong language and intense sexual situations.

“A noir thriller as hard-boiled as anything written by Hammett or Chandler. Saucier writes with the force of a gunshot.”
– Jack Caldwell, author of the CRESCENT CITY novels BOURBON STREET NIGHTS and ELYSIAN DREAMS
“A gripping novel of love and betrayal. The story is full of angst within their relationship, keeping you on the edge of your seat each time you turn a page.”
– Rach Lawrence Books
