Author Cathy Pegau has a forthcoming sci-fi romance and I’d like to share the details with you. CAUGHT IN AMBER has strong suspense elements and is scheduled for a January 13 release from Carina Press.
Recently out of rehab, Sasha James is determined to keep her head down, complete her parole, and never touch amber again. The chip in her neck controls her cravings for the highly addictive drug, but also tracks her every move. Not that she goes anywhere other than work and the halfway house she calls home—a far cry from her luxurious former life as lover of the mining colony’s top drug dealer, Guy Christiansen.
Agent Nathan Sterling has no desire to see Sasha fall back into amber, but his sister has become Guy’s latest conquest and the unexpectedly attractive Sasha is the key to getting her back. So in exchange for an introduction, he offers Sasha the one thing she can’t refuse—her freedom. From the chip, her parole, and even the planet if she wants. Though he would be sorry to see her go…
Torn between her growing attraction to Nathan, fear of Guy and the allure of amber, Sasha accepts. But who will save her if Guy refuses to let her go a second time?

Ooooh, me likes the addiction angle very much. Nathan Sterling is a secondary character from Cathy Pegau’s RULEBREAKER and he’s a real “good guy” hero. This pairing sounds very promising. And isn’t that an enticing blurb? Very tightly written.
