Cover Reveal for The Widow by Colette Saucier

I'm very honored to be able to reveal the cover for Colette Saucier's new book due to be released very soon. So without further ado here is the blurb for the book. You didn't think I was going to make it that easy did you?

Blurb: In this thrilling romantic noir suspense, DEA agent David Alvarez invested four years in deep undercover infiltrating the ruthless Sonora Drug Cartel only to have his primary target gunned down by a rival gang. Now his only hope in salvaging the operation and bringing the largest drug trafficker in the world to justice lies with the man’s beautiful, young widow Catherine, whom he cannot bring himself to trust.

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?

Author Bio: 
Colette has been writing poems, short stories, and novellas since grade school and experienced early success in having several of her poems published in her junior high school newspaper. Her interest in literature led her to marry her college English professor, but eventually a love of history encouraged her to trade up to a British historian.

Technical writing has dominated Colette’s career for the past twenty years; but finding little room for creativity in that genre, she dedicated fifteen months traveling to Europe and Britain, researching Regency England and vampire lore and literature, to complete her first full-length novel, Pulse and Prejudice (Austenprose Readers’ Choice: Top 5 Books of 2012) - the bestselling paranormal adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, which tells the story of Mr. Darcy, Vampire. Pulse and Prejudice was also selected the 2013 1st Place Winner in Category: Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction.

Colette was named “Debut Author of 2012” by Austenprose and selected a 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-finalist for her novel The Proud and the Prejudiced (abriged as All My Tomorrows), which was also selected the 2013 “Favorite Modern Adaptation” by Austenesque Reviews and voted a “Top Ten Romance Novel of 2012” (P&E Reader’s Poll).

Colette’s latest release, the romantic thriller Alicia’s Possession, was the publisher’s #1 Bestselling Romantic Suspense for 4 straight weeks following its debut in June of 2013 and then again in January, 2014, after being voted a “Top Ten Romance Novel of 2013” (P&E Reader’s Poll).

Her next release is the romantic noir thriller, The Widow, and she is currently researching and writing a sequel to Pulse and Prejudice entitled Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, which follows the newlywed Vampire Darcy and his bride Elizabeth from Britain to Antebellum New Orleans.

Colette lives in South Louisiana with her historian husband and their two dogs.

Advance Praise: 
“I loved this book. It’s a non-stop thrill ride. I enjoyed the intelligent writing and the fast paced action. The relationship between David and Catherine as fellow rivals turned to each other for mutually benefit reasons is well done and adds great depth to the story line. . I was unable to stop reading this book until it was done.” - Lori Reed

“The Widow is a gripping novel of love and betrayal. With David working undercover, he constantly has to be careful of what he says and who he says it to, even as his relationship with Catherine grows. Once his position with the DEA is revealed, Catherine still isn’t sure what she can trust—and neither is David. Each has to fight through the lies to find the truth while working to save their lives. 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

“The simplicity of the title, elegant book cover, and the intriguing synopsis had me hooked right from the start. It is an absolutely fantastic storyline for this type of romance. This gripping, angst-filled story was fast paced and interesting, with Catherine more emotionally broken as events unfolded and David going back and forth on whether to trust her and how far he was willing to jeopardize his career.” – A Klues
