BOOK OF THE DAY: Snowed by Veronica Forand

(Click for UK, Australia, Canada or India purchase)

A romantic thriller novella.

Don't fall in love with the man sent to kill you...

Lorena Rubio lived a safe, simple life until she's kidnapped by Andres "Con" Conesa, right hand man for the drug lord who murdered her sister. Con must keep her at a cabin in the snowy Sierra Nevada Mountains until his boss can confirm or deny the rumor that she'd provided specifics about his drug cartel to the police. Their attraction ignites in the middle of this winter wonderland, but he's in deep cover for the FBI and has to remain there, and she refuses to attach herself to someone in the criminal world. When the boss arrives a few days and wants Lorena put on ice, Con's willing to blow his cover to save the woman he craves beyond reason, but he may be too late.


A Bostonian by birth, Veronica Forand regrettably lost her Boston accent while moving from state to state and country to country. Cleveland probably had the most profound effect on her ability to pronounce the "r" in the word "park."

She does try to return now and then to visit family and eat long neck clams and lobster. Summers on Cape Cod are also high on the priority list.

Her experience in crime involves time as a court appointed attorney. Eventually, she switched fields to where bigger crimes take place, corporate tax. The allure of spending mornings in her pajamas homeschooling her children and writing fascinating fiction caused her to change careers again. Now that the kids are out of the house (in school), she writes romantic thrillers by day and is the perfect wife and mother at night.

Her experience in romance is limited to one man. Luckily, he's still finding ways to charm her by taking her on vacations to the south of France, Fiji, and the Green Mountains when time is short. Avid travelers, they love to roam with their kids across continents in pursuit of skiing, scuba diving, and the perfect piece of chocolate.

She's lived in London, Paris, Geneva, Washington D.C., and the accent destroying city of Cleveland. She currently resides near Philadelphia.

If you like to sleep with one eye open, this is the book for you. Lorena thought she had escaped the world of drug dealers after her sister died at the hands of her violent drug lord boyfriend. Lorena had fashioned a nice quiet life for herself until Con shows up and kidnaps her. Is he trying to protect her or kill her.

I always read Veronica Forand’s stories with a defibrillator nearby. This one is packed with tension and one fear gripping scene. But the hot hot hot love between the two main characters softens the blow. The short story fulfills the promise of a fun ride.
