Jewel Cave

April 10, 2015

Hello!

I’m Elizabeth Noble and I’m here to celebrate my latest release Jewel Cave, the third in my suspense/mystery series Circles.

To start us off today I’ll let you know about the contests. I’m running two separate contests. You are welcome to enter them both, simply include backlist, JC, or both in any comments made. I’ll be giving away one eBook copy of any book off my back list and one eBook copy of Jewel Cave.

Dreamspinner has kindly provided a discount coupon code of Noble0414 (case sensitive). It gives everyone 25% off Circle series ebooks and lasts until the 16th of April.

Jewel Cave Final 12614 copy

 

The amazing cover was created by TL Bland, she is the genius behind all the covers for the Circles series.

Book blurb:

Through ten wonderful years Griff Diamond and Clint Bishop weathered good times and bad together. Lately they haven’t spent as much time together as they’d like, and their physical relationship is suffering. Then Clint loses his job at the steel mill. Instead of worrying, he sees it as an opportunity to lean on his steady partner, start his writing career, and rekindle the passion they’ve lost.

 

But a friendly relationship with another author turns to obsession, putting Clint’s life in danger. Taken against his will to the Jewel Cave system in South Dakota, Clint must rely on the skills he’s learned from Griff to survive.

 

Fearing the worst, Griff tracks Clint across the country. As a US Marshall, Griff’s always been the man who keeps everyone safe, but he doesn’t know how he and Clint will survive this.

 

And a wee bit of an excerpt:

Clint blew out a harsh breath. He looked down at his arms. They were tied in front of him with chain. Another chain ran from his wrists to a ring bolted to the floor of the car. Chains encircled his ankles that led back to the ring as well. “I have to take a leak.”
“We’ll stop soon. Get some food, something to drink, use a restroom.” Dylan reached over and ran his hand over Clint’s thigh, using his fingertips to press against the sensitive part next to the inseam of his jeans.
“Get your hands off me,” Clint snarled. “I don’t know what you think, but Griff’s going to kill you when he finds me.” The words tumbled from his mouth before he could stop them. Can’t hide behind Griff’s badge. I won’t hide behind Griff or his badge. His brief glance at his own leg made him realize these weren’t the jeans he remembered wearing last, nor was this his shirt. How he came to be in different clothing was something he decided not to think about. That decision didn’t stop a shiver from working through him.
Dylan chuckled again. It was a sick, cold sound. “Oh, we won’t have to worry about Griff anymore. I promise.” He removed his hand from Clint’s leg and grabbed the steering wheel so he could hold his other hand up for Clint to see. “Or his dogs. Especially the bastard who bit me.”
“Our dogs.” Clint’s voice broke. He wanted to believe Dylan wasn’t able to hurt Griff. Yes, Dylan had gotten the drop on Clint, but Griff was a professional whose life revolved around protecting others and himself. He had training and skills when it came to self-defense. Clint couldn’t get through this without utter conviction Griff was alive and well despite Dylan’s words. Phoenix and Fern he wasn’t as confident about. A silent cheer went through Clint’s head at the sight of the crude gauze bandage with blood oozing through it. He hoped Phoenix had chomped down hard enough to do real damage to Dylan’s hand. The sort of damage that prevented it from being used normally after it healed.

 

 

I have a few posts planned but can’t decide which one to do next: The canine characters or the place that started it all and inspired this book.

Let me know what you’d like to hear about.

I’ll announce the contest winners Sunday evening about this time.

    Hiya and thanks for the invite to your party.

    Love the sound of this book and would love to read more about the canine characters. Perhaps you could tell us something about them please.

  2. Sorry about the formatting of the excerpt. I keep trying to fix it and it looks fine in the editing box but the spacing won’t change.

    Happy release party!
    I really like the book cover of this one. The blood drops on the chain are very intriguing. I would love to know more about what inspired you.

    Thanks for the giveaway, and i’m greedy LOL i would love to be entered in both :)

  4. Trix says:

    It is a great excerpt, and a very eye-catching cover–the contrasts of the red, black, and white really pop! Both giveaways work for me…

  5. Susan says:

    I’m a big fan of animal characters in books, so hearing about dogs is always a win. I’d like to be entered into both giveaways.

  6. Su says:

    I love it when any animal appears as a character in a story, but I am bit worried about the ominous statement from Dylan that he has taken care of the dog that bit him! That does not sound good for Phoenix and he also said that about Griff, so maybe, hopefully, both are okay?

    If I am lucky I would be happy to win a backlist book or JC :)

  7. JJ says:

    I hope the dogs weren’t hurt too bad by Dylan. Please count me in for both contests: JC and backlist.
