House Of Lies - double finalist!

Great news. I got the call. Two calls actually! House of Lies, my 2007 romantic suspense release, finalled in best romantic supsense and best first book in the National Reader's Choice Awards.

Here's a blurb from House of Lies:

It’s too late to win her father’s love. Instead, Hannah Montgomery must deal with the remote mountain cottage she inherited. The caretaker of the property, wounded ex-CIA agent Jake Sutherland, promised his dying partner that he’d help Hannah get settled.

But Hannah is very unsettled by the hidden letters from her father, letters which put Jake and Hannah on a collision course. As secrets from her father’s life are revealed, Hannah’s deep-seated quest for the truth challenges Jake’s loyalty and honor.

To make matters worse, the double agent who betrayed Jake and killed her father tracks them down. Caught in a web of deceit, Hannah must make a choice. Will she risk her heart – and her life - to learn the truth about her secretive father?
