Review Spring Blog - Copy

Hailey has survived being kidnapped by terrorists thanks to a Navy Seal mission. Things happened so fast she never got to thank the Seal who carried her out of that hell.

Chasen hasn’t been able to forget about the journalist he rescued a few weeks back. Now he has the opportunity to see her again and he isn’t going to waste a single moment.

Relationships are hard for Seals and Chasen isn’t sure if Hailey would be interested in someone that would have to leave her at a moments notice. He hopes however that being a journalist who travels for stories she may be more tolerant than most.

Denying PTSD and pushing to do more Hailey attends a Publicity event for the new Seal construction. Her goal get the councilman to reveal something to confirm or deny the allocations of kickbacks made by a hacker group. She’d also like to figure out who the group is they seem to be getting an awful lot of scoops. To her delight and surprise she runs into the Seal who rescued her. Literally runs into him. The except below is one of my favorite scenes, be sure to read it.

Hackers, crooked politicians and that eerie feeling of being watched make for a hold your breath exciting read. On top of all that the fast developing inferno like relationship between Chasen and Hailey.

I can’t wait to read the next installment in this series (pre-order below)!

5 Contented Purrs for Paige!

Excerpt Spring Blog - Copy

She’d thought he’d be easy to find, but the place was SEAL hunk central, with an awful lot of the fit, attractive guys in attendance. While quite a few of them flashed charming grins in her direction, none of them had those unforgettable blue eyes she’d spent the past four weeks seeing in her dreams.

Her earlier assessment had been right. This was hopeless.

Sighing, Hayley turned to go in search of Brad instead and almost smacked right into the broad, muscular chest of a guy in blue camo. She stared at his uniform up close, absently wondering why the Navy wore blue camouflage. It wasn’t like they were ever going to be in a blue jungle. She glanced at the rank on his collar—noting the three chevrons of a petty officer first class—then the nametag sewn on the right hand side of his chest, noting his name—it said WARD—before lifting her head to apologize for practically mowing him down. But when her gaze met his, all she could do was stare. There couldn’t be two men on the planet with eyes that blue. She’d found the SEAL who’d saved her life.

“It’s you,” she breathed.

Okay, that definitely wasn’t the most intelligent thing she’d ever said out loud. But the SEAL smiled anyway, flashing the cutest pair of dimples her way. Hayley’s breath hitched. She’d tried to picture what he looked like ever since that night, alternating between Chris Hemsworth and Henry Cavill and finally settling on a combination of the two. She hadn’t even been close. Petty Officer Ward was even more gorgeous than she imagined. Taller than she was by nearly a foot, he had broad shoulders, dark hair, and a square jaw to go along with those mesmerizing eyes. Now, this was what a superhero should look like.

“It is,” he said. “I’m glad to see you’re doing well, Ms. Garner.”

She’d been so caught up in the memory of the captivating blue of his eyes she’d completely forgotten how sexy his voice was. The deep, rich tones caressed her, making her feel warm all over. Just like they had that night in Africa. Wow, this guy was pure sexy, wrapped in blue camo. She had a crazy urge to ask him to say something else—anything else—so she could hear that voice again.

“Call me Hayley, please,” she finally managed.

She offered him her hand, pulse skipping when he took it. Wow, he had really big hands. A little part of her mind whispered something about the significance of that, but she ignored it. Instead, she focused on the overall sense of strength seeming to pour off him in waves. Being this close to him and getting a chance to take in how tall and muscular he was reminded her of the way he’d picked her up and carried her so effortlessly that night—all while using a weapon.

Hayley had never thought of herself as the kind of woman who wanted to be swept off her feet by a guy, but right now she was thinking this man could carry her anywhere he wanted to.

Damn, this guy was seriously messing with her calm, cool journalist exterior.

“Chasen Ward,” he said.

Chasen. Unusual, but it fit him. Gorgeous name for a gorgeous guy.

She wondered if the guy realized the kind of effect he likely had on every woman on the planet, especially the one standing right in front of him. Probably not, she guessed. Guys were usually clueless about that kind of stuff.

“How did things go over there?” she asked. “After you got me out, I mean.”

She cringed as soon as the words were out. Guess he hadn’t messed with her journalist mojo as much as she’d thought. Crap, now he’d think she was looking for a scoop. Nothing turned people off more than a nosy reporter.

But he merely nodded. The shade from the brim on his hat accentuated his chiseled features as he moved, making them seem even more angular.

“They went well,” he said. “My Team and I got back a few days ago as a matter of fact.”

Her inner Barbara Walters wanted to ask what else they’d done over there, but before she could decide if that was a good idea or not, two other Navy guys in blue camouflage sauntered over. Both petty officers second class, they were tall, well-built, and good looking.

“Hey, I know you,” the younger of the two men said with a trace of a Southern accent. Blond with brown eyes, he had that casual Channing Tatum-thing going on. “Though I hope you don’t mind me saying, you look a lot better now than you did the last time we saw you.” Hayley frowned in confusion at the two men, sure she would have remembered if she’d met them before.

Chasen chuckled. “This is Dalton Jennings and Nash Cantrell. They were with me when we rescued you that night. You’ll have to forgive Dalton for being clueless. He’s taken several classes on how to be charming, but unfortunately, he keeps failing them.”

She laughed and shook hands with both men. Dalton looked so chagrined, she couldn’t help but take pity on him. “Don’t worry about it, Dalton. I’m well aware of how much of a mess I looked that night. Thanks for being there with Chasen and the rest of your Team.”

The SEAL visibly relaxed, giving her another grin. “No problem. Just doing our job, ma’am.”

Dalton might have failed out of charm school—according to Chasen at least—but there wasn’t a woman alive who wouldn’t swoon over that Southern drawl.

“I know it was hard to tell with all the gear we had on,” Dalton continued. “But I was the one doing this.”

Dark eyes suddenly intense, he struck an action hero pose, arms lifted as if he were holding an imaginary machine gun. On either side of him, Chasen and Nash snorted in unison.

“You mean you were the one nearly running into every wall around you because the batteries in your NVGs were dying.” Nash pointed out drily, his dark eyes filled with amusement.

Dalton considered that a moment, then dropped the pose and shrugged. “That might have been me.”

Hayley laughed, unable to help herself. They were both funny—and seriously cute—but she had to admit she was glad when they took off a little while later, leaving her alone with Chasen.

“How is your ankle feeling?” he asked as his buddies walked off toward the pavilion.

“Much better, thanks,” she said.

He looked down pointedly at her foot where it peeked out from under her long skirt. She’d tried not to make it obvious, but she’d been standing with all her weight on her good foot so she could give the injured one a rest. Chasen lifted a brow as if he saw through the little white lie.

Hayley gave him a sheepish look. “Okay, you caught me. It still hurts a little. But it really is much better. Thanks to you.”

“How’s that?”

“If you hadn’t gotten there in time, a messed-up ankle would have been the least of my worries. I don’t know how I can ever repay you for saving my life.”

That playful grin returned. “I’m more than ready to call it even if you consider going out to dinner with me.”

If Chasen were any other guy, Hayley might consider making him work a little harder for a date. But she’d been more than ready to go out with him since he’d loaded her on that helicopter over in Africa. Heck, there’d been a time or two when she’d woken up from an especially nice dream involving the Navy

SEAL when she was ready to do a lot more than date the guy. Rip off his uniform and roll around on the floor with him being one thing that came to mind.

“Dinner sounds great,” she said, quite proud of her ability to maintain her composure.

“Friday night work for you?”

“Perfect.”

Hayley entered her number in his phone while he did the same with hers, then she gave him her address.

“I’ll see you at 1830 hours,” he said, then chuckled. “I mean, six-thirty.”

“I can’t wait,” she said, and meant it.

Touching his fingers to the brim of his hat in a causal salute, Chasen gave her another smile then strode off. Hayley let out a sigh as she watched him go. Damn, he made that blue camouflage uniform look good.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

To say this book is sizzling hot is an understatement. It starts right in with a conversation (see excerpt below) that leads to, well, let’s just say a dressing room will never be the same for Erika.

Rodrigo is suave, handsome and exudes sexiness. An alpha male used to getting what he wants and what he wants is Erika.

Erika is divorced with two adult daughters, her self esteem is almost non-existent. Her ex-husband made sure of that.

Rigo is unlike anyone Erika has ever been with. Their meeting at the Erotic Gift store the beginning of something Erika is not sure she is ready for. Rigo on the other hand is more than ready for her, he is already sure there is something more that must be explored.

Erika has no idea of the lengths Rigo will go to see her again. When they unexpectedly meet the stakes are far more than just a relationship.

This is an extremely explicit and erotic tale, spun in a way that will keep you turning the pages.

5 Contented Purrs for Francesca!

Keep reading for one of my favorite scenes as Erika and Rigo meet.

Excerpt Spring Blog - Copy

His dark eyes caressed the curves of her buttocks like a warm hand. Erika Larson-Bergstrom shivered as she glanced at him out the corner of her eye. She licked her lips as his gaze captured hers and he smiled, unnerving her while at the same time arousing her until she ached with need.

A part of her wondered if her mischievous twenty-two-year-old twin daughters had set this up. After all, they were the ones who’d given her the $100 gift certificate for Erotically Bound, the upscale Minneapolis adult store she shopped in right now. But the man eyeing her was no twenty-two-year-old kid. He was all man and she wanted to explore every inch of him…intimately.

Erika looked down at the lingerie she fingered, trying to clear her lust-filled mind. Her biggest problem was that she’d spent the last twelve years rearing her daughters as a single mom. She could count on one hand the number of men she’d dated during that time. The number she’d slept with was even less. She was just horny and needed to get laid, and he was the answer to a horny woman’s prayer.

“Miss, could you assist me?” His voice was warm and deep with the hint of an Antonio Banderas-style Spanish accent. She looked up into the warmest brown eyes she’d ever seen. At least he’d called her “miss” and not “ma’am”.

“Assist you?”

“Yes, I must buy a gift for a lady and I have no idea what she might want.”

“Oh.” Erika forced a smile to her tight lips. “Sure.”

Well, that certainly burst her bubble. He had a woman he was shopping for. It figured. Of course it should have been a relief he wasn’t buying undies for himself since he was shopping in the women’s lingerie section, but she’d been dreaming he might possibly be as attracted to her as she was to him. No such luck.

He wanted a buddy to help him shop for another woman. Shit. Buddy seemed to be the only way men viewed her—especially lately—and it was almost always because she was a plus-size woman. Women with big butts liked sex too. Damn men, anyway.

“So what’s the gift for? Your anniversary? Her birthday?”

“Anniversary? No.” He laughed.

She liked his laugh…a lot. He threw himself into it. His head back and his hands running through his hair. Thick, black hair. Yum.
Focus, Erika. Do not notice the full, wide lips and straight, white teeth. The high cheekbones. She swallowed, her gaze skimming over him. The broad shoulders, narrow hips and tight ass. Forget how hot he is. But no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t ignore his appeal.

“I’m shopping for my administrative assistant.”

“Your…?” Oh geez. Sleeping with an employee. Could it get worse?

He waved his hand as he read her expression. “No, she is getting married and this place has a bridal registry.”

“A bridal registry? You’ve got to be kidding.” Erika raised her brows.

“I know. It sounds insane, and so I told her. But she assured me it was so.” He pulled out a piece of paper and handed it to her. “Here is a list of things the clerk printed for me that have not yet been purchased for her. My assistant is very organized and wants no duplicates.”

Erika looked at the list he held and realized he was telling the truth. It consisted of lingerie, loungewear, dresses, shoes and, good grief, sex toys and movies.

“It’s…um…comprehensive.”

“Yes. I refuse to buy her some of these items. I am her friend, yes, but her employer first. Can you imagine if I showed up at the office bridal shower with,” he took the list back, glaring at it while shaking his head in disbelief, “a Rotating G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator?”

“It would certainly be the talk of the party,” Erika agreed dryly.

About the Author Spring Blog

Francesca Hawley  Francesca Hawley
Hi. I’m Francesca Hawley and I’m a fat chick. A woman with dangerous curves just like my heroines.

Many people don’t like the word, “fat” but I do because it’s the truth and I’ve learned to own it. I am a fat chick and I always will be. When I first began to read romance, the heroines were all thin. I kept wondering, where were the fat heroines? I wanted to read about a fat chick who loved herself—or at least learned to love herself—and a hot alpha hero who liked her jiggly bits just the way they were. Since I didn’t find many big girls to read about, I decided to write about them, so Francesca Hawley – author of Romance with Dangerous Curves was born.

In a Francesca Hawley romance, my readers will find authentic, sensual, fat heroines who love and are loved by their intense, passionate, and seductive Alpha heroes. I hope you enjoy their dangerous curves just as much as their hunky heroes do.

About the Hot SEALs Kindle World

With years of dedication to the Navy, SEAL Jon Rudnick and his teammates have confirmed one thing – they are not afraid to risk life and limb for their country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy, this band of combat-hardened veterans is divided. While some remain actively serving, others take their drive, skills, and expertise to the private sector, where they form GAPS (Guardian Angel Protection Services). In these roles, will the SEALs fight for the women they love with the same vigor they use to seek out enemy threats? Which battlefield will you have them face next?

Interview

Please join me in welcoming

Maryann Jordan   Maryann Jordan

She graciously answered some questions for me about her writing.

What attracted you to writing about SEALs?

My last series was about a Special Forces team that retired from the Army and began a security firm. It may seem like an overdone theme, but there are so many readers that love this genre. My husband had been in Army Intelligence and I wanted to create a team of brothers that continued their service after retiring.

What’s a typical day of writing for you? Are you a planner or do you wing it?

I am a complete planner! I have to have everything plotted out. I start out with an idea, develop it, begin making notes about it. Create an outline, storyboards and then begin writing. The story may go in different directions after I begin writing and the characters talk to me, but I have to have a plan to begin.

How do you decide where your book will take place?

All of my books take place in Virginia (I’m a 30 year resident of VA and love it!) I create fictional cities, but many people familiar with Virginia will recognize the locations.

What is your favorite part of writing? What is your least favorite part?

Favorite part is the creative juices that bring fictional characters to life. Readers tell me that my characters appear to be people they would like to know. I do a lot of editing to make the writing as good as it can be and that can seem vary tedious. I get so nervous when I first send it to beta readers until I hear back that they like it!

What genres do you enjoy reading? Do you have any favorite authors?

My favorite genre is the one I like to write in – Romantic Suspense. Although, I began reading historical romances way back in the 1970’s and they hold a special place in my heart.
My all time favorite author would be the amazing Kristen Ashley. She writes with abandon…not following anyone’s rules of writing. I find it fresh, exciting, and completely captivating.
Amy Harmon’s Making Faces was an amazing contemporary romance and moved me to tears, which is hard to do!

Do you think that social media is important for an author to be involved in?

Extremely important, especially for indie authors. I need to connect with readers and have gained many new readers just by interacting with them on social media. I have readers who have read my books and write to tell me how they meant something to them, or a shared experience. I love this!

If you could be a character in a book, which one would it be, and what part would you play? (Romantic lead, sidekick, etc)

When I was a child and read (voraciously), I always put myself into the book during my playtime (or even daydreams). My Barbies became Nancy Drew (and her friends, George and Bess).
As an adult, I would love to be the romantic lead (never the sidekick). If I were to choose one of my books, it would have to be the first one I wrote, Emma’s Home. I could easily see myself as Emma, search for a place to put down roots…and meeting Jake would be the bonus!!

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

A private investigation business, pulling together men from the CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA, Border Patrol, SEALs, and police, devoted to the missions that no one else wanted or could solve.

Jude Stedson was a SEAL…at least until an injury while on a mission left him with an honorable medical discharge and no direction. He even relegated his girlfriend to friend only status until he could decide what he wanted to do with a life that had been dedicated to the SEALS.

Sabrina Taggart loved the man…not the career title. But until she could prove that their love would continue, she took the role of friend…just to stay close.

When a con artist set his sights on her family, Jude steps in, willing to work with her cousin, a member of the Saints P&I. Keeping Sabrina safe gave him a new mission. Discovering that mission gave him purpose. When her life was threatened, Jude knew that nothing would stop him from saving her…or admitting his love for her.

Can he prove that he has what it takes to be a Saint?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love books with strong women and Sabrina takes strong to a whole new level. Having been in a committed relationship with Jude before his injury she hasn’t wavered in her feelings for him at all. Even when he repeatedly pushed her away and was cruel she stood by him. Finally accepting the position of friend in order to stay close even though her love was stronger than ever.

Forced out of the SEALs by his injury, Jude is sailing a desk at Norfolk. Unhappy in his career and doubting his self-worth he is trying to find something that will make him worthy of Sabrina, the woman he loves beyond all reason.

Sabrina’s grandmother Amelia throws a party and Jude meets some interesting characters. Bart, Sabrina’s cousin who works for Saints Protection and Investigations introduces him to Jack his boss. They give him interesting alternatives to the boring job he is doing now. Former team members from all different branches working together as a cohesive unit to solve problems on and off the grid.

A con-artist using the premise of being able to contact their late husbands for investment advice, targets Amelia and some of her elderly friends. After consulting with Bart, Jude decides to do a bit of investigating of this Nastelli guy and see what the angle is. Better to bring him down before he ruins these lovely ladies. Sabrina, however, almost beats him to it. He spots her just before she does something incredibly dumb. This is a favorite scene that takes place the morning after he catches her.

“I just thought since you want to consider doing investigations as a possible job, then maybe you should get Bart or his boss, Jack, involved in how we should proceed with this mess.”

“We? Babe, there is no we in this.”

“You know what Jack said. If Nastelli gets a hint you’re checking him out then he’ll leave town. I thought you all wanted to stop him from doing this to other vulnerable women.”

“I know, but maybe I can convince him that I want to use his services.” Shaking her head, she said, “Look, Jude. I’ve been thinking about this. Nonnie has already talked to Mr. Nastelli about me and my trust. Maybe I could meet with him, convince him that I’m interested and see what that gets us.”

“Hell, no!” he shouted, sitting up in the bed. “I don’t want you near this guy!”

Arguing for several more minutes, Sabrina flopped back down on the bed in frustration. “Fine. Then talk to Jack. See what he thinks.”

Reluctantly agreeing, he called Bart later that morning, after she went to work, and within a few minutes had Jack on the line. Much to his chagrin, Jack agreed with Sabrina.

“Look, Jude. Do your research first when planning a mission. No con artist that is as good as this guy is, will ever talk to you. He’s smart and his self-preservation is at an all-time high. Tell you what, we’ll do a phone conference with you and my group when you get a little more information to see what the next course of action should be.”

Jude agreed, then called Sabrina back. “I’m going to work with Jack’s group on this and if, and only if, they think we have no other choice, then you can help.”

After getting her agreement to not act independently, he disconnected the call and leaned back on the sofa, running his hands through his hair once more. Jesus, Bart makes this sound so easy. Hell, so do Zane and Rick. If this is going to be my new career and keep Sabrina in my life… I’ve got to figure out how to make this work.
Hot SEALs: Revealing Love (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Saints Protections & Investigations Book 3) (Kindle Locations 753-772). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

My SEAL Bodyguard by Paige Tyler

She writes about danger for a living and now she find herself in it. Only a Navy SEAL can save her.

When someone breaks into romance author Peyton Matthews’ Virginia Beach home to steal her newest manuscript, her publisher hires Noah Chase, a former Navy SEAL and the newest member of GAPS to be her bodyguard.

Peyton thinks the idea of needing a bodyguard is ridiculous, but she can’t help appreciating how gorgeous Noah is. And while she thought that having a stranger hanging around 24/7 would mess with her creativity, the Navy SEAL definitely comes in handy when she’s choreographing fight scenes.

All that hand-to-hand action and rolling around on the floor with him gets her pulse racing, but while Noah is falling for Peyton too, he doesn’t act on it. He needs to keep his head in the game and focus on the job or he could end up getting her killed. She might not think she’s in danger, but his gut tells him differently.

The threat to Peyton is closer to home than she realizes however, and it will take all of Noah’s SEAL training to save her life.

Protecting Julie by Susan Stoker

Susan StokerJulie Lytle is working hard to turn her life around. Being kidnapped by sex traffickers changed her drastically, but having grown up the spoiled daughter of a senator, Julie wishes she could’ve changed just a little sooner. Shamed by her behavior toward the woman rescued alongside her, and further embarrassed and guilt-racked over the way she treated the SEALs who risked their lives on her behalf, Julie is desperate to make amends.

With help from Missy Greenwood, a D.C. acquaintance who’d endured her own harrowing experience, Julie connects with Patrick Hurt, Commander of the SEALs who’d saved her life. If she can prove she’s not the same person who mistreated his team, he’ll grant her request to meet them—but not before the protective, sexy man makes a surprising request of his own.

**Protecting Julie is a Kindle World crossover novella with the SEAL of Protection Series and Cat Johnson’s Hot SEALs Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but we recommended reading the other books in the SEAL of Protection Series in order to get maximum enjoyment.

Jeff Lennon had been forced to do things he didn’t like as a Navy SEAL, and now as an agent for the terrorist division of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol. For years, his only real regret has been what he couldn’t to do to Stacie back in Iraq. He’s been given another chance to claim her heart, body and soul. In the meantime, they have to stop a terrorist attack somewhere in the Norfolk area, during Fleet Week.

Even the agency’s psychologist isn’t sure Stacie can pull off pretending to be Jeff’s wife. What lengths will Stacie and Jeff go to assure the mission’s success? And what will they both lose in the process?

Darwin’s Evolution by Siobhan Muir

12512524_523354934510697_938212629905457935_nSometimes retirement is a helluva lot of work…

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Sadie Hawkins is ready for a quiet life with her mother in northern Arizona. No more recon, no more shots fired. Hell, she might even give romance a try if she finds the right guy. Like the one asleep on her shoulder on the train.

Cyrus “Darwin” Finch retired from the Navy SEALs and now runs Ultimate Recon, a security, surveillance, and rescue company employing retired members of the four branches of the U.S. military. He’s on “forced” vacation and is supposed to relaxing, dammit. Until he meets Sadie.

When they discover a foreign enemy setting up a domestic retreat in Sadie’s backyard, romance and vacations take a backseat. There are no calm seas or clear skies with bullets flying, and no time for a Happy Ever After. But SEALs never give up and Marines never surrender.

I have always been an avid reader. I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old bodice ripper romance books. Last year I started a blog to showcase wonderful writers. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma’s Home was created.

I work as a counselor in a high school and have been involved in education for the past 30 years. I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 32 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters. When writing, my dog or one of my cats will usually be found in my lap!

Marissa Dobson

Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, Marissa Dobson now resides about an hour from Washington, D.C. She’s a lady who likes to keep busy, and is always busy doing something. With two different college degrees, she believes you are never done learning.

Being the first daughter to an avid reader, this gave her the advantage of learning to read at a young age. Since learning to read she has always had her nose in a book. It wasn’t until she was a teenager that she started writing down the stories she came up with.

Marissa is blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He’s her other half and allows her to stay home and pursue her writing. He puts up with all her quirks and listens to her brainstorm in the middle of the night.

Her writing buddy Cameron (a cocker spaniel) is always around to listen to her bounce ideas off him. He might not be able to answer, but he’s helpful in their own ways.

Donna Michaels

It’s all my mother’s fault. She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues that fed my imagination…and boy could I eat! As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. I’m a NY Times, USA Today, and Amazon Bestselling Award winning author. Phew, that was a mouthful! Multi-published in e-book and print with several publishers, I certainly have a ton of voices in my head.

I’m happily married to a military man for 28 years. We have four children and several rescued cats. Michael’s been in the Army National Guard since before he graduated. The Guard has been a part of our lives right from the start. It was only natural for the military to spill into my writing. God bless the military and their families. Thank you all for your sacrifices.

You already know my mom inspired my love of reading, but it was my dad who got me hooked on movies. Even now, if I had the time, I could happily go from one movie to another all day long. They are the reason I love mixed genre and why I can’t just stick to just one in my writing, although, as you can tell, I have a soft spot for cowboys and the military.

Well, that’s about it. Thanks for getting to know me a little better. Remember, keep reading to your children. The journey you’re igniting is precious. And the next time you’re at the movies, turn around. I just might be the person sitting behind you. No, not the one throwing popcorn (it’s too expensive to waste). I’m the one already imagining the sequel. Have a great day and thanks for reading!

KaLyn Cooper

Born and raised in a small town in New York close to the Pennsylvania line, we water skied in the summer months on the lake and snow skied all winter. One a cold January night while clomping through the lodge I literally ran smack into the man I’d eventually marry. His high school was ninety-six miles from mine but we made the long-distance relationship work.

While I was at Penn State, he went to the United States Naval Academy and chose the Marines upon graduation. I followed him throughout his military career living on Army, Air Force and Marine Corps bases, making sixteen moves and meeting some of the most wonderful people in the world.

Working in Public Relations all over the country and in Japan, I’ve written for international, regional and local corporations, non-profits and was a ghost writer. I won national awards for travel and tourism books and ghost written several self-help books but I hadn’t written fiction since college.

When we moved to East Tennessee for the second time, we built our house-and I mean we, my husband, our son and I-built this house from the studs in. As I hung insulation, painted, tiled and planted, I plugged into audio books and discovered I really enjoyed romantic suspense. In the evenings I read romance novels. By the time the house was ready for occupancy, I’d read over 300 books, mostly in the romance genre and suspense.

One night while my husband was working out of the country, I sat at the computer and started writing a book. I entered it in several writing contests and learned a lot from the critiques. I met romance writer Deborah Grace Staley who helped me tremendously. She told me my 125,000-word tome wasn’t one book but three and none were the first in what has become The Black Swan series.

I attended many conferences and craft workshops over the next year while pitching every chance I got. The Black Swan series garnered interest and notice enough to convince Emily Kim, owner of Prospect Agency, to become my agent. When I’d finished Explosive Combination, it had gained a life of its own in the Romantic Suspense genre. Emily and I separated it from the Black Swan series, which is in the Contemporary Romance category, and I sold Explosive Combination to Liquid Silver Books in November 2013. The first of the Black Swan Series should come out in 2016.

In December 2014, Christmas In Cancun was published by Liquid Silver, the first of a new series of Romantic Suspense books based in Cancun, Mexico. In April 2015 I self-published Conquered in Cancun followed by Captivated in Cancun in January 2016. I was honored to be invited to write in Cat Johnson’s Hot SEAL Kindle World and wrote Claimed by a SEAL – Cancun Crossover novella 2.5 released January 2016.

I have been married to the same man for over thirty-seven years. Our two children are grown but our son lives with us. Our daughter and her husband blessed us with a granddaughter a few years ago.

I still read over 100 books a year, mostly audio books, and write every day.

Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy

If at first you don’t succeed, f*ck it and move the hell on. I’m Rane Wilder and I’m not one to hold on to sh*t. Life as the guitarist in the biggest band on the planet is fun. Which is good.
Because the second it stops being fun, I’m out.
 
Being in the music video with Madeline Cole, that was fun too. Sure, the band had misgivings. Maddie’s a crazy former child star who hit rock bottom hard, and is now trying to revitalize her career. She’s a fiery redhead with big blue eyes and a bad reputation, but her mom is dating my dad, so I thought I’d do her a favor by giving her the work.
 

That’s when things get difficult.

Because falling for Maddie is really easy. I can see the fire inside of her, and I love it that I’m the one who makes her burn.
But being with her? That’s hard as hell.

Especially when our parents announce their engagement.

I’ve fallen for a force of nature and she’s about to become my stepsister.

And for the first time in my life, I can’t move on.
