EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

From Night Train to Hong Kong by Ottilia Scherschel:

Sarah slid the door of the train compartment open. “Did you forget something, Evan?”

Instead of Evan, a stranger rushed in. Without a word, he shoved her in the ribs.  She stumbled backwards, sucking in air with a loud wheeze. “Ugh,” she groaned as the air rushed out of her. Pain shot through her ribcage.

The intruder jerked the compartment door shut. She was trapped. Her heartbeat accelerated to a frantic thunder in her chest.

The stocky man with a moon face took two menacing steps toward her. “Where is it?” he bellowed. The overhead light cast fearsome shadows across his face. His thick lips hung slightly open. His breath reeked of garlic and his body of cologne, sweet like orange blossoms. 

 Her knees went weak. She gaped at him. “Where’s what?”

AUTHOR BIO – JILL JAYNES:


Jill Jaynes began her love affair with romance when she was a teenager growing up in Southern California, spending many a late-night under the covers with a flashlight and good romance novel.  This early addiction stuck, and she discovered one day that telling great stories was even more fun than reading them.

When she’s not writing, you can find her a) wine-tasting, hiking or otherwise hanging out with her awesome husband, b) walking her two high-maintenance dogs, c) plotting her next story with her writer-daughter or d) working at her day job in her spare time.
