Evidence #8 Code Contest and Title Reveal!

This week I posted the title for Evidence 8 in code with the challenge that the first person to crack the code and figure out the title would win signed copies of all 7 Evidence books.

But before the second code went live, we had a master code-breaker solve the puzzle!!

The thing about the code I used, once you crack it, you would absolutely know you had it
right, so huge congrats to Susan Greenbank who correctly figured out (with the help of her daughter Caelli) that the code was a Vigenere Cipher! Once she had the correct type of code, she *still* had to guess the correct key.  I posted the key later to give everyone a chance to guess and play with this Vigenere Cipher decoder.
(Psst!  The key was EVIDENCE.)
Honorable mention goes to Jennifer Presley, who guessed the title without solving the puzzle.  She guessed the correct title based on it being a 6 letter word with no repeating letters.  I hid her comment with the correct guess so others could work the cipher. Jennifer won the signed Evidence book of her choice.
So…still wondering what the title is?



#TBT to Withholding Evidence


This week’s Throwback Thursday was to a quickie just as hot as the rest of the Evidence series, but a fast read. Do you like short books in the midst of a series? Or should they all be equal in length?

Some secrets are worth dying for…

Military historian Trina Sorensen has a nearly impossible task before her: get recalcitrant but tempting former Navy SEAL Keith Hatcher to reveal what happened during a top secret Somalia op five years ago. Recent history isn’t usually her forte, but the navy wants an historian’s perspective and has given her the high security clearance to get the job done.

Keith isn’t just refusing to tell Trina about the op, he’s protecting a national secret that could destroy the lives of those he cares about the most. But not wanting to talk about a covert mission doesn’t mean he isn’t interested in spending time with the sexy historian, and the first time they kiss it’s explosive.

A 99c Sale from Darcy Burke!

The Duke of Deception is Book 5 in Darcy Burke’s The Untouchables series and is just 99c for a limited time!


Difficult and defiant as a child, Bran Crowther, Earl of Knighton left England as a young man to pursue independence and adventure. He never expected to inherit the title and when duty calls him home, he still finds Society’s codes constricting and others’ expectations oppressive. Nevertheless, he needs a wife to be a mother to his young daughter, preferably a woman of intelligence and warmth who is, above all, immune to his idiosyncrasies—and to falling in love.

Widow Joanna Shaw isn’t interested in a second marriage, not after the loveless, passionless union she endured. She’d much rather dote on her young niece and nephew since they will likely be the only children in her life…until she meets a precocious girl, in desperate need of a mother. But her father, the so-called Duke of Defiance, is as peculiar as he is handsome, and Jo won’t take another risk with her heart. Their rules, however, are made to be broken, even when the consequences could destroy them both.
