Crisis of Identity by Denise Moncrief






Tess Copeland is an operator. Her motto? Necessity is the mother of a good con. When Hurricane Irving slams into the Texas Gulf coast, Tess seizes the opportunity to escape her past by hijacking a dead woman’s life, but Shelby Coleman’s was the wrong identity to steal. And the cop that trails her? He’s a U.S. Marshall with the Fugitive Task Force for the northern district of Illinois. Tess left Chicago because the criminal justice system gave her no choice. Now she’s on the run from ghosts of misdeeds past—both hers and Shelby’s.

Enter Trevor Smith, a pseudo-cowboy from Houston, Texas, with good looks, a quick tongue, and testosterone poisoning. Will Tess succumb to his questionable charms and become his damsel in distress? She doesn’t have to faint at his feet—she’s capable of handling just about anything. But will she choose to let Trevor be the man? When Tess kidnaps her niece, her life changes. She must make some hard decisions. Does she trust the lawman that promises her redemption, or does she trust the cowboy that promises her nothing but himself?

Author Bio:



Denise wrote her first story when she was in high school—seventeen hand-written pages on school-ruled paper and an obvious rip-off of the last romance novel she read. She earned a degree in accounting, giving her some nice skills to earn a little money, but her passion has always been writing. She has written numerous short stories and more than a few full-length novels. Her favorite pastimes when she’s not writing are spending time with her family, traveling, reading, and scrapbooking. She lives in Louisiana with her husband, two children, and one very chubby dog.

  9. I wonder why she kidnaps her niece. I'll have to read more to find out, I guess.

  10. You mention that Viola Estrella did the cover and took your suggestions. Does she work for your publisher? As a librarian (and a reader), I'm interested in covers. I've heard some authors say that they don't have an input into the cover, while some self-published authors end up trying to do it all. Somehow, if I were an author, I think I'd want at least some say or input about a cover.

    1. Hi Catherine

      Viola is contracted by my publisher. She asks for my input and uses my suggestions in the cover design. When she has a sample copy, the cover is emailed to me for my opinion before it is released as a cover reveal. Other publishers have complete control of the cover design. They will ask the author's opinion, but the cover is totally up to the publisher and their graphic design team.
