Guest Post and Giveaway with Mary Martinez, author of Disappear

Hi, everyone!

I am pleased to participate in Mary Martinez's Disappear Virtual Book Tour hosted by Bewitching Book Tours.

About Mary:

Mary lives in Magna, a little town west of Salt Lake City, Utah. Together with her husband, she has six grown children, and five wonderful grandsons and 2 beautiful granddaughters.

Mary and her husband love to travel, especially to the Caribbean for relaxing and Italy for the wine. With the experience from the exotic places she has visited, she is able to fill her books with colorful descriptions of cities, painting a colorful backdrop for her characters.

Mary and her husband are avid college football fans. They have season tickets to the UTES, University of Utah Football and they tailgate every game. They love tailgating so much, that they were married at a tailgating in 1999.

Mary is a member of the Romance Writers of America and several sister chapters. She has published several articles for her local Utah RWA newsletter. They have appeared in several other chapters’ newsletters.

Welcome to Darlene's Book Nook, Mary!

Mary has written a guest post, so I will now turn the floor over to her.

Thank you for having me on my last day of the book tour, here at Darlene’s Book Nook. It’s been more work than I thought it would be, but man have I had some fun. Met some interesting people, and answered some challenging questions.

Thank you to everyone who has followed me on this little journey. I hope it’s okay if I do a wrap of everything.

Anyone who would like to join my, announce only, newsletter you will receive a free download of my Charmed and Beguiled. Check it out.

Next out for The Beckett Series is Innocent Jessica Beckett’s story.

All Jessica wants is a home and a family. So how did she suddenly find herself falsely accused of a felony and then kidnapped by a hit man?

Jessica Beckett loves her job teaching high school algebra. That is until Coach Brinley makes her life miserable because she actually has the audacity to fail his three staring football jocks. Maybe if they’d done their homework they would have passed. She refuses to be intimidated. He on the other hand refuses to admit defeat and manipulates the boys into accusing her of sex in exchange for passing grades.

Gabriel Despain loves his job as FBI agent. But falling for his partner’s sister has complicated a great partnership. It would be a lot easier to ignore his feelings if Jessica hadn't found herself in trouble. Now he must keep her safe. And if he can't remain objective, they both might get killed.

Innocent will be out July 2012.

Next out for The Beckett Series is Quiet Christine Beckett’s story.

Christine Beckett’s dream of partnership in a prestigious New York City law firm has finally come to fruition. She has financial security, a loving family, and owns her home, why does she need a man?

Detective Solomon has worked with Tyler Beckett on several cases, he almost feels he is part of the Beckett clan. He considers them his good friends, except for Christine who seems to look down her professional nose at him.

Christine receives a threatening note and her townhouse echoes with mysterious cries in the night. That is when the handsome and irritating detective insists he temporarily move in to protect her. To add insult, it is with her family’s blessing.

Quiet will be out in November 2012.

Excerpts are available on my web site. Please come and visit me often at Mary’s Garden, or on twitter and/or Facebook. I will be attending the Romance Writers of America national conference this summer in Anaheim, if you’re attending please come find me and say hi. We can do coffee or a drink.

Bewitching Tours will be doing something called the Rafflecopter. It keeps track of everyone who follows me on Twitter or ‘like’s my Facebook page, follows my blog, or anyone who subscribes to my newsletter will all have entries for the drawing that will take place at the end of the tour on June 4th. There will be four winners and they will have their choice of a download or print book of any of my books.

I’m so sad to give my final goodbye! Thanks again.

Thanks so much for joining us today, Mary! 

Four lucky winners will win their choice of any of Mary's books in either paperback or e-book format!

After two years undercover as an FBI agent to infiltrate a crime organization and discover the identity of a hit man, Tyler Beckett’s cover is blown. Tyler’s new assignment is to protect the only witness who can identify the mysterious killer. If only he didn’t find her so attractive. Each day it becomes harder to keep his objective, especially since he knows the interest is mutual.

Keira Cavanaugh is the only witness to a hit ordered by a crime boss. The safe house is compromised and the same hit man shoots Tyler. Fearing Tyler is dead, Keira plans revenge on the crime organization. She must fake her own suicide in order to survive.

When Tyler discovers what Keira plans, he realizes he must stop her before he loses her for good.
