“Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m awake,” Jessica mumbled into the phone. 
Leo’s hands clenched over the steering wheel and he scowled at nothing in particular as he passed yet another car. He was going too fast, but he really couldn’t have cared less.
KAREN CINO (Contemporary Romance)
The traffic was horrendous coming down two lane Richmond Hill Road, other wise known as Snake Hill to native Staten Islanders.  Billy drove along the curves a little faster than he should have, causing his care to sway from side to side.  
“Ooh who is that?” Sherra moistened her lips and climbed the wooden fence, whistling at the hot man on a horse. “Ooh come ride me baby!”

DAVEE JONES (Suspense with romantic elements)
"Blue Ink - The Skin Stalker

MORGEN BAILEY (General Fiction)
"A Lot to Learn"
There was something about being a city vet that always appealed to Mark, something about the delight on the children’s faces when they saw a live animal, bigger than the stick insects, gerbils or cats they lived with. Nothing, however, had prepared him for Brady ‘What’s that?’ Smith.
CAROLYN GIBBS (Romantic Suspense)
Claire didn’t know how she got into this pickle. One minute she was leaving the book fair with Nancy and Sam, and the next they agreed to have dinner with a maybe-murder and his maybe-naive wife.
