Poison Me - a new book and a giveaway!

 The latest offering from romantic suspense writer Cami Checketts: 


Chanel Roberts slammed the back door of her Jetta. In the trunk and back seat, she’d loaded everything she would need for the next few weeks. As part of her severance package, a moving company would ship the contents of her apartment wherever she requested—how kind of her employer, after firing her for something she didn’t do.

A hand wrapped around her waist. She screamed.

“Chanel, it’s me.” Ace spun her to face him, his blue eyes reflecting the bright lights of the parking lot.

She wielded her keys like a weapon. “Let go of me.”

He slowly released his hold but didn’t back away. Chanel yanked open the driver’s side door. If I can just get into my car and call the police. She got one foot inside before Ace grabbed her arm.

“You have to listen to me for a second.”

She tried to pull free. “No, I don’t. You set me up. I lost my job, and I lost—.” Chanel choked back the word and the sob. She’d almost admitted she was more upset about losing him than she was about him ruining her life.

“It was Willy’s fault. Please, you have to believe me. I’ll make it up to you. We’ll go away and—”

Suddenly, a large, muscular man ripped Ace away from the car, wrenching Chanel’s arm in the process.

“Thought you could run away with your girlfriend and leave me behind?” It was Willy, Ace’s repulsive friend.

Ace smacked his fist into Willy’s face. The blow hardly affected the bigger man. Chanel dove into her car, shoved her keys in the ignition, and yanked on the door. Willy stuck his arm inside the car. The door smacked his bicep and he grunted, but kept reaching towards Chanel.

Panting for breath, she turned the key, jammed the Jetta into reverse, and slammed her foot down on the gas pedal. The car flew backwards, flipping Ace and Willy away from it. Chanel wrenched the steering wheel, closed the door, and pushed the gas pedal to the floor.

The Jetta shot off through the parking lot. Chanel risked a glance in the rearview mirror. Ace and Willy scrambled from the ground. Ace reached out to her with one hand. She turned the corner, dialing 9-1-1 and cursing herself for looking back.
