SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY ~ Trust Me by Anna Wells

Lawyer Alaina Simmons never imagined that she would be defending her deceased father against accusations of terrorism when she agreed to protect his legacy, a group of documents he’d placed in an archival  repository.  FBI Lawyer Donovan Prentice insists that her father and the organization he worked for were terrorists and that crucial evidence is in the documents Alaina has sworn to protect.  Now she is forced to combat the FBI and her  compelling attraction to Donovan Prentice while unaware that she is also Donovan’s suspect. 
Special Agent Donovan Prentice is working undercover posing as a lawyer in an attempt to gain access to the evidence he needs to convict a group of terrorists as well as determine if Alaina Simmons is working with them.  Things become complicated as Donovan becomes more intent on getting his suspect in bed than putting her in  jail.
When the bullets start to fly and the lies begin to unravel Alaina and Donovan begin to explore their intensely sexual relationship, but the couple will have to learn to trust each other both in and out of bed before the terrorists’ game of intrigue can end.
Warning: This book contains steamy sex scenes and amusing banter.  (Romantic Suspense/Erotic)

She took a deep breath before saying, “Donovan. I’m just going to face the elephant in the room. When we met this morning I obviously had no idea who you were and if I had I wouldn’t have spoken to you the way that I did.  Okay?”

Donovan was a little surprised but managed to hold back a laugh. “And what way was that?”  His voice held that same sensual tone that it had in the drugstore.

Okay, so wow, his voice really turned her on.  She felt slightly embarrassed, but what the hell he had flirted too. “Well, I was a bit flirtatious.”

He raised a brow and grinned. “A bit?”

“Cut me some slack, you were just as bad.  Admit it.”  Could that knowing grin of his get any bigger?  She wasn’t sure why, but he was charming the hell out of her.

“As an officer of the court, I’m taking the fifth,” he said jokingly before adding, “I think this is a conversation we should pursue further once we’ve completed our business.”  He paused a brief moment and looked at her intently.  “And I would like to pursue it.”  

The low timber of his voice caused her skin to tingle, and she felt her face flush in reaction.  The idea certainly had merits she thought as she studied the hard plains of his face.  God he was hot and he was making her hotter.  She exhaled trying to calm herself before saying, “Do you think we can do that?  Wouldn’t it be a conflict?”

He gave her a slight smile and there seemed to be a sparkle in those blue eyes as he said, “Yeah I think we can do that, but we have business to settle first.”

She nodded in agreement, hoping the meeting went smoothly and they could get back to the more interesting conversation.  Wasn’t that a professional thought?


Hi, Anna.  Thank you for joining me today.  Can you please introduce yourself?
Hi, Kim.  It’s great to be here.  I’ve just published my first book, TRUST ME.  It’s a romantic suspense with just the right amount of erotica.

Who are Alaina Simmons and Donovan Prentice?
Alaina Simmons is a lawyer and the heroine of my novel who also happens to be a primary suspect in our hero, FBI Special Agent Donovan Prentice’s terrorist investigation.  The problem is that Alaina doesn’t know that she is under investigation.

What research was involved in writing the book?
Donovan’s character and the story itself required that I do a great deal of research on being an FBI Agent as well as learning more about how the FBI ran investigations.  A great deal of the plot centers on terrorist using privacy laws to avoid prosecution so I did considerable research on how that could be accomplished.

What’s your favorite part of a book to write or read and why?
I’m all about the romance, so I love it when my characters are interacting whether they are fighting or flirting.  It’s these exchanges that really develop the relationship.

Do you have a favorite scene or line from the book and if so, could you tell me?
I really enjoy the opening of the book where Alaina and Donovan first meet face to face.  I love their instant chemistry and especially how Donovan is immediately attracted to his primary suspect.

What’s next for you?
I’m really excited about my next story.  In TRUST ME, Donovan tells Alaina about how his sister, Michaela, recently caught her fiancĂ© in bed with her best friend.
Jordan Marsh was Michaela best friend’s boyfriend.  The two finding themselves suddenly single form a close friendship, but Jordan soon gets tired of being in the friend zone. After crossing the line from friends to lovers Michaela is shocked that Jordan had always wanted more that friendship, but will soon discover that Jordan has many secrets.  Can she trust him or will he betray her too?

This will be the start of my Billionaire Brothers series.

Wow.  That sounds really interesting.  Thank you Anna for taking the time to answer some questions for me.
Thank you, Kim. I hope you and your readers enjoy TRUST ME.
