Infamous for her blocks on the roller derby circuit, Ballistic Miss L rolls with whatever life hands her. But Malinda Locke's fearless demeanor can't keep her wheels turning when she hears those dreaded three words: you have cancer.
Having lost her brother to cancer, Malinda feels like her family is cursed. Determined to fight back without anyone knowing, she quickly finds keeping the secret from her best friend, also her brother's widow, is harder than accepting her fate. As Malinda faces life-altering decisions, she starts to rely on her derby friend Dex the Hall. Their attraction is undeniable, but circumstances dictate the relationship remain platonic.

A jammer on the men's roller derby team, Declan Hall's as fast on eight wheels as he is to come to Malinda's aid. As a paramedic, he has a vast network to help Malinda learn about cancer and her options. Her reluctance to open her heart has him fighting the demons of his foggy and sordid past. AA helps him handle the alcoholism and spearmint gum staves the nicotine addiction, but not even the reality of cancer can deter the fixation he has for Malinda.

About the Author

Big dreamer and certifiable overachiever Susan Ann Wall embraces life at full speed and volume. She's a beer and tea snob, can be bribed with dark chocolate, and the #1 thing on her bucket list is to be the center of a Bon Jovi flash mob.
Susan is a multi-genre author of racy, rule-breaking romance, women's fiction, and erotic fiction (her erotic titles are published as Ann Victor). Her bragging rights include nine books in three different series, three perfect children, adopting an amazing rescue dog, and a happily ever after that started while serving in the U.S. Army and has spanned nearly two decades (which is crazy since she's not a day over 29).
In her next life, Susan plans to be a 5 foot 10, size 8 rock star married to a chiropractor and will not be terrified of large bridges, spiders, or quiet people (shiver).

Susan sees the world in varying shades of purple and never passes on the opportunity to add to her collection of purple sunglasses or purple shoes. She spends her days working as an instructional design consultant from her home in the majestic White Mountains of New Hampshire. When she's not tapping away on her purple netbook, she enjoys chilling out with her three kids, drinking a nice cold one with her husband, and jaunting off to Bon Jovi and Kenny Chesney concerts.

This is where the leader sleeps and occasionally eats. It is a dead log, with a wide hole in the trunk. The inside is large enough for 1 cat to nest there comfortably, and the den is lined with moss to keep it warm. ~ \•Fawnstar•/
