Dear "Ms. Agent",
I am seeking representation for my 70,000 word thriller, TRIAL.
Kassidy Harding is newly engaged and content with her life until she makes the mistake of picking up a hitchhiker. Logan seemed kind, charming . . . trustworthy. Now, with a gun to her head and an alleged killer in the backseat, she is taken hostage and forced to drive Logan across country to escape law enforcement. The Feds may be hot on their trail, but they always seem to be just one crucial step behind.
As moments between them pass, Logan digs deeper into her soul than her fiancé ever did. He forces her to face her demons, including the death of her parents, her fear of intimacy, and her secret cutting. This man, so terrifying and dangerous, is the puzzle piece she's been missing. Now, not only is Kass open and vulnerable for him, but even Logan finds himself opening up to and trusting this girl that---upon meeting---he almost couldn't stand. Now, their emotions are torn between escaping this disaster and never seeing each other again, or taking it head on, side-by-side.
Kass can only hope that by the time she makes her decision, it's not too late.
I am currently a writer, EMT, full time Developmental Technician, as well as an intern for Louise Fury at The Bent Agency. TRIAL is my sixth manuscript, and it is complete at 70,000 words. I believe TRIAL will appeal to New Adult aged readers with not only a love for suspense, but also a desire for a dysfunctional, hot-under-the-collar romance.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please note that this is a simultaneous submission.
