About the author:
A lifetime New Englander, NYT and USA Today author Suzanne Rock married her college sweetheart and has been with him for over twenty years. Every summer she drags him on a quest for the perfect lobster dinner. Every fall she’s cheering on her favorite football team. In between those times, she’s a chauffeur, a maid, a chef, an event planner, a hairdresser, a tutor, and a sometimes masseuse. To keep her sanity, she drinks a lot of coffee and stares at a blank computer screen, dreaming of great adventures. Sometimes she even writes them down for others to enjoy.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Deep in the heart of the Amazon Jungle, an ancient breeding race begins…
Ever since she was jilted by her lover, Aleta had been subjected to humiliation by her Jaguarundi tribe. Not anymore.
She is determined to emerge from her final Cria unmated, and finally be free of tribal traditions and her overbearing father. Aleta has plans — bigger plans than her father’s desire to see her marked by some oafish warrior in an outdated breeding competition. After the Cria she’ll move to the city and start fresh, leaving her clan — and her broken heart — behind.
Unfortunately, the past is unwilling to let her go.
Forced to abandon Aleta when he went into exile, Luiz knows that this Cria will be his last chance to reclaim what is rightfully his. When a surprise encounter doesn’t go exactly as planned, he realizes it will take more than a little seduction for Aleta to forgive the sins of the past. The race is on, and the battle of wills has begun. Everyone knows that in the Cria anything can happen, and with the stakes this high, all bets are off.
