Yesterday was the big release day for Bishop’s Gambit (Redclaw Origins2)! Bishop and Knight are back and in more hot water than ever!
Redclaw Origins: The year is 1955. Rebel without a Cause and The Seven Year Itch are playing in the movie theaters. The Chevy Bel Air is the most popular car in America. Gas is 25 cents a gallon and you can get a hotel room for $4 bucks. This flirty, fun series takes us back to the beginning and shows us how Redclaw Security got started.
In the award-winning Bishop Takes Knight, we met Rhett Bishop, a former socialite desperately seeking work. She lands a job at Redclaw Security, a firm that’s not all that it seems. A routine assignment turns deadly when tracking down missing scientist, Dr. Peter Knight, unleashes a pack of wolf-shifters on their trail. Toss in rival shifter gangs all searching for a cache of mysterious artifacts of great power, and Bishop and Knight are lucky to escape with their lives.
In Bishop’s Gambit, still stinging from being sidelined after the debacle of her first mission, Rhett has a lot to prove. Which is why she accepts her newest assignment: pose as a married couple with Peter Knight to investigate strange happenings in an upscale 1950s suburban development. When malice is served with a smile and a slice of apple pie, it’s not hard to see why Rhett might prefer to face down a horde of angry shifters!
His footsteps crunched on the gravel path as he hurried to catch up, but I ignored him and continued walking.
He drew abreast, stuffing his empty lunch sack into his pocket as he hurried along. “Does this mean you’re saying no?”
Pulling to an abrupt stop, I forced him to brake as well or risk running into me. I punctuated every word with a poke to his chest. “Still. Haven’t. Been. Asked.”
His eyes flew open wide before a sly grin—one I had a hard time resisting—curved his mouth. “Oh. I can’t exactly go down on one knee here, but Rhett Bishop, would you do me the honor of being my fake wife and partner in an undercover investigation?”
His impish expression said he still didn’t understand why I was mad.

Nice scene here. Brought a chuckle and some intrigue
Thank you! These two are so much fun to write!
*grins* Thank you!
Ai yi yi, WordPress does it again. Hopefully this isn’t a duplicate comment.
Excellent banter! Somehow, I wouldn’t be terribly flattered by the fake wife and partner bit.

I got this comment! Thank you–I don’t think Rhett’s too impressed either… 😀
Great scene. I like the pokes in chest and he still didn’t get it.
What can I say? It’s 1955. 😀
Loved, loved, LOVED this book!! And the excerpt is perfect.
Oh, thank you! (I’m sorry about the delayed response–I didn’t get the notice from the website!)
