The Forthcoming: Terra Little - Where There's Smoke

Terra Little
Where There's Smoke
Available December 30, 2008
In Where There's Smoke, Alec Avery gets an unwelcome blast from his drug-dealing, street-running past that turns his life upside down. Back in the day, he was known as "Smoke" and Anne Phillips was one of his customers. So how did they end up with a teenage son together? You do the math. Dollars make sense, but Anne didn't always have the money to pay for what she wanted. Now Alec is paying the price.

These days he's a military vet and a well-respected high school teacher. Just about the last thing he expects to encounter is a son he never knew he had and a bunch of foolishness that he thought he was done with. His son is out of control, experimenting with drugs and running with a rough crowd, and the last thing he expects to encounter is a long-lost father who is hell-bent on making his presence felt in a very meaningful way.

Before long, Smoke has no choice but to come out of hibernation to put some heads to bed, starting with the thugs who don't want to turn his son loose (see book cover graphic). They didn't count on old school meeting new school, which is their first mistake. And Alec didn't count on drooling over the woman his son's mother has become, but whether or not he's making a mistake remains to be seen.

Old school contemporary fiction meets new school urban fiction between the sheets, and the resulting twisted flame won't be easily contained.
