Today, we are hosting Emma Calin and her new release Shannon's Law. Enter the rafflecopter draw for prizes!!!
Thank you so much for letting me showcase my forthcoming steamy action-romance novel SHANNON’S LAW. It’s the second in my PASSION PATROL series - stories where sassy female cops lock up the criminals and always get their man.
February marks the start of my “Pinterest Reveal Virtual Book Tour” in the run-up to the launch on the 28th February 2014.
Every day there are feature posts on topics relating to SHANNON’S LAW on blogs all around the world. They’re all linked together on one big Pinterest Board. Each post replaces a ‘mystery’ silhouette that was posted in January. I saved all my notes and photos as I was writing, on a private Pinterest Board and now I can share them with you.
Today’s subject is: Jewelry from Shannon’s Law – a rather special necklace.
1920's diamond necklace - silver and white gold and 4.75 carats of diamonds
I love jewellery. I don't exactly expect a man to give me baubles but I do expect him to mark me as his. Visible tattoos or labels saying “This woman belongs to X” are out of the question. A few glinting gems on the fingers show that someone wants to show me off. There's nothing like a hard stone at the top of my cleavage to bring out the softness beneath.
In the story, Shannon has little jewellery. Simply she has not had that depth of relationship. I had a marriage like that so I understood her. In Shannon's Law various items of wonderful jewellery make an appearance. A victim of burglary loses all the mementos of her life and loves. At another point a wonderful necklace makes an appearance. She had never seen such a thing. I remember taking my kids to the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels. In thinking how Shannon would have reacted when she saw this item, I tried to recapture my sense of dumb wonder standing in front of the display. In those days my fingers were bare and that is how I felt about my romantic life.
There's nothing like a diamond is there? My gaudy magpie type of taste also inclines me to red rubies to reflect my passion, sapphires match my eyes, opals compliment my feminine allure and mystery. Diamonds simply reflect my sparkle and brilliance. Oooh – I'm just so easy to please! As yet I have no emeralds – but I have to be careful not to go out looking like traffic signals. When Shannon sees the necklace she's not even sure what she's looking at.
“My God, my God.” She was staring at the most beautiful piece of jewellery she had ever seen.
“What is it?”
“It’s a necklace.”
“It’s white gold with pear shaped rose diamonds.”
Wild child inner-city cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. When the bosses lose their nerve, after yet another maverick mission, she is transferred to green pastures to play out the role of a routine village cop. When she encounters signs of slave and drug trafficking she homes in on serious millionaire criminals.
As a loner she has attracted men but nothing has stuck. When she meets Spencer, the hunky and widowed Earl of Bloxington, there is an immediate rapport between them. Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need.
Already in the mix is an upper class female rival – who has long plotted her way into the Earl's bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet.
Often inhibited by a sense of duty and honour, Spencer is slow to reveal his feelings. When Shannon confronts him with the need to choose between her word and that of her rival, he does not immediately support her.
All issues are set aside, when they are forced together to carry out a desperate rescue mission. Their love is stronger than everything ranged against them.
