Sue's News, March 2006

Hey there, everyone! Hope all of you are healthy and happy as we face the last vestiges of winter.

My next book, Walk Like A Man, will be released on March 8. Order it now from Barnes and Noble

or from Amazon

I'm getting some very nice reviews. Here's a sample:

Swift has penned a very enjoyable contemporary romance between a major sports figure and the therapist whose skill is all that stands between him and life in a wheelchair. Lynne Welch, Booklist

My editor calls Booklist one of the "Big Four"—the others being Kirkus, Library Journal and Publisher's Weekly. This is the first time that one of the Big Four has deigned to review my writing, so I'm pleased.

So what's the book about?

Here's the blurb:

Macho quarterback Jim Wellman meets his match in bright and sassy physical therapist Marti Solis, who goads him out of his wheelchair, pushing him to walk again. Unlike every other woman Jim has wanted, she refuses to jump into the sack with the celebrity athlete. Though attracted to his bedroom smile and rugged good looks, she's intimidated by his fame and turned off by his arrogance.

Can Jim become the lover Marti needs? Can he learn to walk like a man?

Set in California's beautiful Napa Valley, this multicultural romance delivers humor and pathos, sparkling dialogue, layered characters, a heroine to root for and a hero who's pure fantasy.

And here's a free book offer!

I'll email you a copy of Mac's Secret Father, a full-length romance, upon the receipt of proof of purchase of Walk Like A Man. Simply tear out the dedication page of your copy of Walk Like A Man, write your email address on it, and send it to me at P.O. Box 241, Citrus Heights, CA 95611-0241. As soon as I get it, I'll email you the book.

What's it about, you ask? Well, here's the blurb:

Despite spending most of her teenage years mooning over her hero, Dave Madsen, Linda Travers has moved on with her life—being left pregnant and alone will force that on a gal. She lives in their hometown with their six-year-old, Mac, a son Dave knows nothing about.

But suddenly botanist Dave reappears in her life. A vicious snakebite suffered while on an expedition has left him on crutches and in need of treatment by the only physical therapist in town: Linda.

To Linda, Dave has always been temptation personified. But can she overcome the hurt, anger and pain stemming from his betrayal?

And can Dave trust Linda? She never contacted him regarding her pregnancy or their son, and is now offering what are, to him, flimsy excuses for keeping him out of their child's life.

So there are a lot of similarities between these two books—if you enjoy Walk Like A Man, you'll love Mac's Secret Father!

What could be better? Two books for the price of one!
