Suz news!

*crackly PA system voice* Attention! ATTENTION!! We have cover blurb. I repeat, WE HAVE COVER BLURB!! */crackly PA system voice*

For those that don't know, Suz's next book is titled Dark of Night and is due out January 27, 2009. It picks up almost exactly from the end of Into the Fire. A couple of days ago, Suz posted the cover blurb on her bulletin board (you can get there from her home page - see linkage above).

Here we go:

Taking on the world's deadliest criminals is what Troubleshooters Incorporated does best. But now the elite security force faces a new and powerful threat from their most lethal enemy yet -- a shadowy government outfit known only as The Agency.

For years, operative James Nash performed ultra-covert "Black Ops" missions for The Agency, but when he walked away from their dirty work, his corrupt bosses weren’t about to let him go. After Nash is nearly assassinated, Troubleshooters team leader Lawrence Decker launches a skillful deception to neutralize the threat and protect his friend. With the FBI’s help, Deck fakes Nash's death, then brings him to a safe house with his fiancée Tess Bailey, to recover from his injuries and strategize their next move.

Only a handful of people know Nash is still alive -- and fellow Troubleshooters Dave Malkoff, Sophia Ghaffari and Tracy Shapiro aren't among them. Believing Nash is dead and that Decker has begun a romantic relationship with Tess, Sophia settles for second best and begins a love affair with Dave, who's adored her for years. But it's receptionist Tracy who alone puts two and two together, discovering the truth about Nash -- much to Decker's dismay.

As passions flare, Decker struggles to keep his scheme afloat, and keep Nash alive. But when he finds himself targeted for death, the game turns even more perilous, and Sophia, Tracy and Dave are swept into the deadly play. Under fire and racing to unmask their relentless adversary, the Troubleshooters know the closer they get, the greater the risks. But sacrifices and consequences come with the territory. No longer just solving a crime, they're fighting for survival -- and forced to choose between love and loyalty.

The cover:

Of course the speculation is running rampant over at the BB. Deck/Sophia 'shippers, Dave/Sophia 'shippers, Deck/Dr. Jo ''s rampant, I tell ya! For me, I don't like Deck and Sophia together...that's not to say that Suz couldn't completely change my mind, if she goes that way, though. Still, I'm thinking that Dr. Jo is a good match for Decker. Even though we know very little about her. Sure, as we learn more, it might become obvious she is better suited to someone else (like Dave?) but, for now, I'm leaning toward her for our buddy Deck.

And Suz said this book closes out the story arc she started in Flashpoint. My speculation (contains spoilers for those who haven't read ITF yet) - highlight to read: Does that mean she's going to stop torturing poor Tess and Nash?

So, who do you think the main hero and heroine will be, peeps? And will any other couples hook up and get their HEA??

I'm IT and a whole lot more...

Ames tagged me.

Here are the instructions:
Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions.

Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the closest. Tag five other people to do the same.

Here's page 56, sentence 5 of the most recent book I finished - plus the next, to finish out his thought):

"By Jove, you haven't changed a bit," he said and winked at her as he put her bonnet on her head. "Still the prettiest girl I've ever seen."

Maria wondered what Miss Dutton might think of that opinion, but she didn't voice her speculation aloud.

~from Laura Lee Guhrke's latest, Secret Desires of a Gentleman

In other news, I'm heading out of town tomorrow after work. I'm going to visit the 'rents - it's my mom's birthday Sunday - and then Mom and I are going to visit one of her sisters for the week. Wo0t! Shopping and eating and reading and sleeping, here I come!! I'll be popping in and out but I won't be around much. I'll have my phone with me as we're roaming, so I'll try to Twitter a bit.

Don't have too much fun without me, peeps!

ETA: I totally forgot to tag anyone! Duh. Okay - Holly, CindyS, JenB, Rowena and YOU - not-listed person, whoever you are.
