Die Run Hide by PM Kavanaugh - Virtual tour and giveaway

Today we're spotlighting author PM Kavanaugh on her tour with Goddess Fish Promotions for the romantic suspense novel, "Die Run Hide". I have a confession to make -- I didn't volunteer to review this, thinking I just didn't have the time, but I've been following the tour and got so completely sucked in by the excerpts that I went out and BOUGHT the book for my Nook! So far, it's knocked my socks off. Expect a review sometime in the near future.

The author is giving away a 1st prize of a $20 Amazon GC and a 2nd prize of a $15 Amazon GC to randomly drawn commenters during the tour, so comment today AND follow her tour (if you click on the banner at the top, it'll take you to a list of her tour stops)! The more you read and comment, the better your odds of winning. You could be introduced to a great new author AND win a prize!

Follow orders or die. Anika Washington knows the rules laid down by the counterterrorist agency that owns her. When she aborts a mission in order to spare a young girl, she’s given an ultimatum: take on a new mission that requires betraying her fellow operative, and lover, or forfeit her own life.

After discovering that her lover, Gianni, has chosen another, Anika accepts the mission. In the aftermath, she learns that Gianni was faithful to her and she’d been tricked into thinking otherwise. The knowledge comes too late and she’s almost killed in an agency double-cross.

Now she must run—battling time, former enemies and the agency itself to stay alive and save the man she loves.


The single word jabbed Anika like a fist when she stepped inside her loft. She didn’t know Gianni had returned. It had been five miserable weeks since he had left for what she thought was the honeymoon mission with Jewel. The one she now knew had been cancelled.

“How long have you been back?” She dropped her gear on the low table in the middle of her living room.

“Long enough to learn you missed the target. What happened?” The vein in Gianni’s lower jaw pulsed an angry beat.

What she had to tell him wouldn’t improve his mood. As her vision adjusted to the indoor light, she noted fatigue lines around his mouth and a hollowing underneath his eyes.

“I’ve already explained what happened to the debriefing team. It’s all on disc.” She walked into the kitchen where she grabbed a tube of herb water out of the cold cell and took several swallows.

Stop stalling and tell him.

He loomed in the doorway. “What about your promise? The one about you lying low?”

“I thought I had the target.” She finished off the tube and tossed it into the recycler. “I missed. That’s all.”

“You don’t miss.” His words lashed across the room.

“The P-16 isn’t as precise as laser.” Do it now. Before you lose your nerve.

A writer of thrillers spiked with romance, PM Kavanaugh has always loved intrigue, danger and adventure, especially when observed at a safe distance from her own life. She shares her home, dreams and some of her plotting dilemmas with her clever-enough-to-be-a-spy husband and her talkative office cat, Max.
