Judith Rochelle is fortunate that life has given her a lot of experiences on which to draw for her books. She has worked on small newspapers, been a sports reporter, managed rock and Top 40 bands, worked for an attorney and a dentist (can you get much further apart than that?), showed horses in competition, worked in public television, and taught school. Before she retired, she spent a number of years in fundraising and public relations at a private university.
Now Judith lives in the Texas Hill Country with her husband, a sixth-generation Texan and her biggest inspiration. Their children are all grown and thankfully financially self-sufficient, so it’s just them and their three kittens on their six natural acres.
When she's not writing paranormal and suspense as Judith Rochelle or hot erotica as Desiree Holt, she's reading or indulging in her other grand passion—watching football.
SCENT OF DANGER is Book 3 in Judith Rochelle's Phoenix Agency series but may be read as a stand-alone story.
Kelly Monroe was shocked when her Caucasian Ovcharka took an immediate liking to - even bonding with - Rick Latrobe, a partner in the high-profile Phoenix Agency. Ovcharkas are known for linking only with their owners. But Xena is picking up Rick's wavelength, very much aware when an attempt is made on Rick's life, and driving Kelly crazy with signals of danger when Rick ferries a shipment of arms to a private security cadre in Iraq. Kelly is coached by members of the Lotus Circle to expand the psychic link between the three of them - man, woman and dog.
Kelly and Rick soon realize they are falling in love, and as Rick scrambles to learn who's behind the whole mess, the relationship he and Kelly have deepens, also strengthening the link with Xena. It is Xena who becomes the real heroine, constantly signaling when danger is at hand and sniffing out the killers.
This book is also available in ebook.
