Guest Post: Nancy Bush – Nowhere Safe + #Giveaway

This is what happened to me with one of the main characters in NOWHERE SAFE, the third installment in my romantic suspense “Nowhere” series featuring Detective September Rafferty, which will be out this month.

So I chose Nora Roberts’ 200th published novel, The Witness. (I say 200th published novel, because you just know she’s written at least 40 after The Witness that haven’t been published yet.)

The book that is taking the Romance world by storm!!!
So, what do you recommend to readers that have ventured into the romance genre with 50 Shades of Grey . . . . it’s like eating Godiva first and a Hershey bar after . . . everything else is not going to deliver the same level of satisfaction, you know what I mean?
