My Teaser for this week is from

 Burning Heat

by David Burnsworth



My teaser from page 39 in the paperback..

My motorboat really liked the choppy harbor water and was one of the smoothest rides around, thanks to it’s twin-hull structure. With Darcy at the helm, I leaned forward and switched on the radio to the classic rock station. Clearwater Revival’s Green River belted from the speakers. Shelby licked my face as I fed him ice cubes.


I really enjoyed Southern Heat, the first book in this series, and I’m so excited to be holding in my hands the shiny, perty ARC of Burning Heat! These characters are such a hoot and I”m going to have such fun seeing what they’ve been dragged into now!

Read on if you want to know more.


As darkness blankets the holy city of Charleston, South Carolina, Brack Pelton,
an Afghanistan War veteran, steps out of a rundown bar after a long night.
Before he gets to his truck, he finds himself in the middle of a domestic
dispute between a man and a woman on the sidewalk. When a little girl joins the
couple and gets hit by the man, Brack intervenes and takes him down. But the
abuser isn’t finished. He pulls a gun and shoots the woman. Brack saves the
little girl, but his world has just been rocked. Again. The next day, while
sitting on a barstool in the Pirate’s Cove on the Isle of Palms, his own bar,
Brack scans the local paper. The news headline reads: Burned Body of
Unidentified Hispanic Man Found at Construction Site. Nothing about a dead woman
in the poor section of town. Brack feels a tap on his shoulder and turns around
to see an eight-yearold girl standing behind him. She’s the little girl he
rescued the night before, and she wants him to look into her sister’s shooting.
Violence and danger make up Brack’s not-too-distant past. Part of him craves
it—needs it. And that part has just been fed. Things are about to heat up again
in the lowcountry. May God have mercy on the souls who get in the way.

    I’m just hoping that Shelby isn’t a guy. Cat? Dog? Here’s my link: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-19D

    Oh, this sounds great fun! I could do with some steamy Southern heat while shivering in the depths of an English winter. And thank you for visiting my site:)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Yeah. This will warm you right up. I live on the Gulf Coast and we’ve have some chilly days. Miss that balmy breeze.

  7. Wonderful tease and I love the setting.

  8. It sounds good! I hope you enjoy this one! :)

  9. This sounds really good, especially since it’s set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I’ll read it for sure.
    My Tuesday post features GIRL IN HYACINTH BLUE.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      The first book was fun too. I’m not that far into this one but it looks like you can read it without having read the first book.

  10. Nice! Sounds like a good day!

  11. Naomi Hop says:
