Casting the movie
Read an excerpt
What follows is an amazing story of strength, love and corruption.
Ms. Cooper Posey is an amazing storyteller who reaches out and grabs
you with her poignant scenes and characters. This was one of the
best stories I have ever read. You really feel the pain that these
people feel and hurt for them. She also makes you want them to win,
to find that elusive happily-ever-after. The suspense is beautifully
dragged out until the very end and is always lurking in the
background. The feelings that this story evokes are why I gave this
book a Recommended Read rating. I am looking forward to reading more
from this author.

A very fast paced, interesting, moving story--one that is so full of
suspense that the pages kept clicking away at a pace so fast that I
was finished with the book before I knew it. Ms. Cooper-Posey has
created a set of memorable, sympathetic characters put in a rough
situation that has you biting your nails as they try to figure out
how they'll come out of it alive. Very well done. I look forward to
seeing more of fiction like this from Tracy Cooper-Posey. This is an
author to watch, and one to read.
Lisa Ramaglia, Scribesworld reviews
“Truly a high-octane read, and when combined with the romantic
storyline that Ms Cooper-Posey has created, this is a book that will
leave the reader completely satisfied.”
Kristi Ahlers, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
Jack and Sophie have a chemistry that glows throughout this
enthralling yet suspenseful story that is wrapped in romance. There
are two antagonists in this story. One you will watch be disgraced
and the other will leave you guessing until the end. Ms.
Cooper-Posey is talented writer that has created an unforgettable
book with its twist and turns that will grab you from page one and
will not let go until the last page. Silent Knight will not
disappoint readers and I personally cannot wait to read it again.
Cassandra Buckles, Coffee Time Romance
"SILENT KNIGHT is a suspense-filled book as we slowly learn the
truth of just what Jack is running from. Tracy Cooper-Posey has done
a wonderful job of keeping me in suspense trying to figure out just
who the SILENT KNIGHT could be. I found myself pulled into this
story from the very first page and loved the ending! This is one you
want to wait to read until you have enough time to finish the story
in one sitting, as I hated putting the book down. If you’re in the
mood for a good romantic suspense, you definitely want to read

“As dramatic, exhilarating and enjoyable a story as you’ll ever
find. Absolutely outstanding!”

They would do anything to get him.
He would do whatever it took to bring them down.
It was the wrong time to fall in love.
Sophie Kingston gets on a commercial turbo-prop with a case filled
with legal briefs and ambitions of climbing the corporate ladder at
the firm where she’s employed. On her own from a young age, with no
one she could depend on, Sophie got where she was by her own hard
work, never asking anyone for anything. Then her plane fell out of
Trapped in a mountain wilderness, injured and unable to walk, she is
forced to depend on a stranger’s help for everything in order to
survive, whereupon she discovers Jack, with his understanding brown
eyes and his unexpected insights, a special kind of man—a man she
could trust with her life. And, maybe, even her heart.
As Jack Laubreaux looks over the snapped-off wings and other debris
scattered over the mountainside, he knows if he hadn’t been on the
plane it wouldn’t have crashed. And seven people wouldn’t have died.
With that fact weighing heavily on his conscience, his chance at
redemption is found in keeping his promise to Sophie—the only other
survivor—to get her safely out of the mountains alive. But it won’t
be easy. Sophie is badly hurt, and it will take all of his ingenuity
to find a way to get down to her. And it will take all of his
patience to get past her fierce independence and win her trust.
However, the hardest thing of all is meeting Sophie’s green gaze and
not falling in love with her—and not making her a target, too. Jack
is a marked man. His testimony, if he lives to give it, will put a
powerful crime boss in prison. And the mobster’s mole, “Silent
Knight”—someone highly placed in law enforcement, maybe even the
FBI—will be watching, waiting and ready to use anyone and anything
to find Jack and take him out.

I'm so thrilled that Silent Knight finally made it into print.
Although all my books are dear to me, some are more valued than
others, and Silent Knight is pretty close to the top of my
favourites list. (That is, favourite books that I have written. I
wouldn't be game enough to rank my books along with my all-time best
authors -- my ego couldn't withstand the crush!).
The version that makes it into print is the third incarnation of the
story. It began life some years ago as a simple story about a
crash...but it didn't go anywhere. Then I had one of my infamous and
sleep-depriving 3 a.m. revelations; the rest of the story wrote
itself in outline, in about four hours of frantic scribbling by
torchlight. But in that second version, the crash was reduced to a
I put the story aside -- romantic suspense novels just weren't
selling back in those days. And a few years later I read through the
chapters I had. The story had a definite pull, and I found myself
mentally tinkering with it. So I rolled up my sleeves and decided to
finish it properly.
Those few years wait were worth it. My writing abilities had been
polished and my grasp of story technique so much stronger. I could
instantly see the problems with the story as it stood. I dumped the
sketchy prologue in favour of writing the whole seven days on the
cliff in full. The relationship built there resonates throughout the
story, it sets up all the complications and conflict that is to
come, and it drives all Sophie's actions in the future... it needed
to be seen by the reader.
When I had finished the tale for this third time, I was pleased with
the results. I hope you enjoy it, too.

Casting the Movie...
I often get asked who I would cast in the movie of my book, if it
should ever come to pass, so just for fun:
Movie producer's pitch:
Running on Empty joins forces with North by Northwest
Sophie: Julia Roberts.
Jack: Hugh Jackman
Peter: Alec Baldwin.
