To Catch A Thief by Nan Dixon - Book Tour and Giveaway



About the Book


What would you do for your family?

When Carolina Castillo’s once vivacious mother becomes ill, she gives up her singing dreams and comes home to Savannah. She’d do anything for her Mamá, even work at Fitzgerald House for the family she should have been part of. She’d even steal.


Carolina’s decisions make perfect sense until she comes up against the immovable rock that is gorgeous FBI agent Sage Cornell. The honorable cop sees the world in black-and-white. He would never understand the difficult choices she’s had to make, the secrets she’s been forced to keep close. And he could never love a woman like her. Or could he?






Excerpt

“I really appreciate you coming to the hospital.” How many times had Carolina said that already?

Sage slid closer. “I want to see you again.”

She could see the kiss coming.

He stopped inches from her face and asked, “Can I kiss you?”

“Yes.” Her single word was a whisper.

His lips were gentle. Sweet. Light pressure with a little scrape from his stubble.

“Nice,” he murmured, brushing kisses on her cheeks and eyes.

Her hands rested against his chest. “Really nice.”

Sage leaned in. His tongue licked the seam of her lips, seeking entrance.

She opened and stroked his tongue with hers. He tasted of coffee and mint and something dark and sexy. His chocolate-citrus scent made her want to sip at his lips, kiss his eyelids and nibble on his collarbone. She gripped his shoulders, the muscles hot under her hands.

He tipped her head and buried his fingers in her hair.

She fell hard into their kiss, wanting to explore the firm body beneath her fingers. “Sage.”

He pulled her closer.

Pain slashed her chest as her seat belt locked in place. "Ooh."

They laughed.

He cupped her cheek. “I guess your car is trying to tell us something.”

That she should take him up on his offer to come up to his apartment?

“I can meet you at the hospital in the morning,” Sage suggested. “Maybe we could have breakfast nearby?”

Guilt had her sitting back behind the wheel. While kissing Sage, she’d forgotten about her mother. “I’ll have to see what’s happening.”

“Sure. Sure.” He brushed another kiss on her lips, this one sweet and soft. “Will you let me know when you get home? I don’t want to worry that you didn’t make it.”

Had anyone ever cared if she got home safely? “I’ll call.”

Interview

-What should readers expect when they pick up your book?

They should expect a story that has you turning the page to find out what’s coming next. And they should expect to be very frustrated with the heroine’s mother. But please give the poor woman a break, she has brain tumors and has lost her filters and without her filters her narcissism is elevated. But a reader will also get a happy ending, and what’s more important in this world?

-What inspired you to write this book?

I always wanted to have a 4th Fitzgerald sister in the series, but she was cut from the first book. Carolina was my way of adding back a 4th sister in the Fitzgerald House world. And it’s another way to look at the Fitzgerald family and see their reactions to bad news. This book gave me a chance to show how the Fitzgeralds would struggle with discovering a half-sister.

-What exciting story are you working on next?

Right now I am revising Book 1 in a romantic suspense series. The working title is THE PERFECT CHILDREN. Embryos have been genetically modified and implanted in women scattered across the country. The modification techniques are being used by a group to develop superior/enhanced people with the goal of running the US and eventually the world. The first book is the discovery by two of the original men. (They are part of the plot to take over the US.) It’s been a lot of fun writing the series.

-What are four things you can’t live without?

That’s easy. #1? My family. My family. My family.  And if I had to pick more things I couldn’t live without--Tea. Not sure I would be coherent without having tea in the morning. Then maybe a nice glass a wine at the end of day, preferably prosecco. And the final thing I would find hard to live without? Books. I read all the time.

-Favorite place to read?

I read everywhere. While I eat breakfast, as a reward for meeting my daily writing goals, and while I wash my face. Everywhere. That includes in the bath. (Haven’t dropped my Nook in the bath yet—but I have dunked a couple of paperbacks.) I’ll even take my Nook to the store, in case I have to wait in line. And I like to end my day by reading, so bed is a great place to read.

-What is your writing schedule? Do you plan your day around writing or writing around your day?

Since writing is my job, I treat it like a job. I write 6 to 7 days a week, but probably do something writing or promo related every day. I log in and out of spreadsheet during the day to track my activities. This helps me predict how long it takes me to draft a book and then revise it. After breakfast, I write/revise first, before I go on social media or check my emails. I prioritize working on my books first.  I also bought a desk treadmill last year and love working from there!

-Any last words? 
Thank you so much for having me, Edgar!

Thanks...
