Incy Black is “Hard to Hold”

Voice can be a difficult thing for an author to nail down. Readers manage to instinctively pick up on it, and it’s one of the attributes that determines who becomes a favorite author for them. That is probably what I love most about Incy Black and her writing. Her voice is unique, recognizable and draws you immediately into the story. Reading her blog is a refreshing charge into a summer downpour, complete with the occasional lightening bolt to keep you on your toes. Sure, you’re gonna get wet but as they say, life is all about learning to dance in the rain. Incy does that with snarky abandon.

Check out her blog and you’ll immediately want to know more about her.  Browse the first chapter of her latest release “Hard to Hold” for free, and I can just about guarantee you’ll be hitting the buy link. So go get it and welcome to your newest reader addiction.

Hard To HoldAnna Key Marshall is about to get what she’s always wanted: a baby. Granted, it’s through a sperm donor instead of her ex-husband, but you can’t have everything. She has no idea why someone wants her dead, but she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her unborn child—even if it means turning to her ex, the Black Ops specialist who broke her heart.

Five years ago, British Intelligence agent Nick Marshall slammed the door on the woman who betrayed him. But now Anna’s back in his life with a vengeance, pregnant and full of attitude. He’d like nothing better than to walk away, but with her life on the line, he has no choice but to do what he does best—protect her at all costs.

As old wounds resurface, Nick begins to doubt his version of what went down with Anna so long ago. And he begins to believe they might have a second chance together. But with Anna’s would-be killer on the loose—it will take the full force and fury of his protective instincts, fueled by a powerful love he can’t leave behind, to hold on to the woman he still loves.
