kellyToday my GEM (Guest Excerpt Moment) features Kelly Cozzone who writes in the romance suspense genre. I first met Kelly through an author group and am part way through reading her book: Tropical Dreams. Here is the blurb:

Betrayal and death permeated Tiana Alexander’s past and threatens to rip apart her future. She can’t escape the devastation of anger and pain. Bringing Tropical Dreams to life is the culmination of facing all life has dealt to her. The same life that taught her trusting someone carried dire consequences. Until David Murphy walked into her club. He made her want to trust again, made her want to love again. What she didn’t know was someone wasn’t about to let that happen. They wanted her dead!

Can David keep her alive long enough to find out who is after her? Can he put aside his own demons for her? Can they overcome deceit, betrayal and more death? Or will life finally take its toll!

It’s a perfect for summer reading! See for yourself. Here’s an except:


Tiana Alexander was a beautiful woman, with long wavy hair that was a sparkling shade of gold. Soft-spoken and carefree, she was at times childlike in the enjoyment of things she loved. Her driving force was Tropical Dreams and her desire to make it more than just a nightclub. She had lived and breathed the club every single day of the four years she had been planning the opening. Tropical Dreams represented years of hard work finally coming together.

Peering around the club, Tiana pictured the building as it was when she’d first made the purchase. Old and run down, shabby was the first word she’d used to describe the building. Her friends had tried desperately to talk her out of buying the “shack” as they had named it. However it was oceanfront and the ocean had seized her clear down into the depths of her soul. It soothed something in her as nothing else ever had. She’d known from the moment she’d laid eyes on it that she had to own it.  It was her little slice of heaven, her dream just waiting to come true. We’ve come a long way baby, she thought with a chuckle as she examined the almost finished product. Who would have thought an abandoned warehouse could emerge this beautiful? Like a butterfly that had come out of its cocoon.

Consider this for your summer reading list. I’m making it easy for you and including the links.
