In case you’ve missed it elsewhere, I have a free story for you. In 2006, I was asked to contribute a short story for an anthology. Before I wrote for Harlequin Presents, I wrote military romance. My 2008 Golden Heart(R) finaling book was also a military romance, and it’s no secret that I wanted to publish my stories about a military Special Forces team.

But in 2008, I also entered the Harlequin Presents Instant Seduction contest with a chapter and synopsis of a story I’d called The Spanish Magnate’s Revenge. The rest is history. I won the contest, wrote the book, and sold it six months later. And I’ve been writing for Harlequin Presents ever since — a fact for which I am daily grateful!

I’ve decided to share this short story with you because I think you might like to try something of mine that’s different from what you’re used to seeing from me. You’ll find that the hero is still an alpha male, but instead of a billionaire, Major Ryan Cavanaugh is a Marine. A tough, gorgeous, honorable Marine who has a few issues with newspaper reporter Maddie Forester.
