Video Trailer: Extreme Measures

Extreme Measures
 by Rachel Carrington

When her brother killed her parents, Erin’s life changed, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband, Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty and arrested Stuart, but she’d been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the pain.

Now Matt is back but not to attempt reconciliation. Stuart has escaped prison and wants Erin dead. Matt will protect her whatever it takes, but Stuart is a desperate man and won’t be stopped easily.

Matt and Erin battle to stay alive while trying to put the pieces of their destroyed lives back together.

Extreme Measures, the romantic thriller, is available through, Amazon UK, and Barnes and Noble.

Don’t forget, you can cast your vote for trailer of the month on March 30, 2013 at 5 p.m. Pacific time.

A variation on this is the open punctuation business letter, which I’d never heard of until my fellow minion, T.D. McKinnon, mentioned it last week.
