EVA’s Diane Benefiel Wins the National Reader’s Choice Award!

Congratulations to East Valley Authors’ Treasurer Diane Benefiel, winner of the National Readers’ Choice Award for Romantic Suspense!

Diane won the NRCA for her latest release, Solitary Man, a contemporary romantic suspense.

Here’s the blurb for her award-winning story:

My wife is in danger, take care of her.

Caught in a Taliban ambush, Sgt. Ryder Bronson makes a promise to his dying friend. Ryder will keep an eye on Brenna McMurtrey, but he’ll do it from a distance. He’d lost his heart to her long before – just one more weight in his load of guilt. But the police shooting of an unarmed migrant, cars speeding dangerously toward Brenna, and repeated break-ins at her house force him to abandon his hands-off policy.

Brenna is reeling, blindsided by her strong attraction to Ryder. She’d loved her husband, so how can the emotions Ryder pulls from her be so intense? A rogue cop kidnaps Brenna, forcing her and Ryder to work together. They must come to terms with the past if there’s any hope of a future together.
