Happy 2015!

Happy New Year, dear readers! I hope these first days of 2015 find you happy and well. Just a quick post from me to let you know what’s coming up.

First, on January 27th, HOT ICE will be available! This is Book 7 in the Hostile Operations Team series. Book 8 will follow sometime this spring. I have another series in the works, too. Well, truthfully, I have lots of things in the works. If you’ve been reading the HOT series, then you will know that Echo Squad played a part in the last book, HOT REBEL. They will very likely get their own books sometime this year!

I also have a contemporary romance series on the burner. These books are similar to my Harlequin novels, but they won’t be from Harlequin. I may also do something shorter and quicker and publish it in parts. Yes, the dreaded serial — but I WILL let you know if something is a serial instead of complete in one volume.

And Colonel Mendez. Ah, the colonel. Everyone wants to know if he will get a story. He definitely will, but I don’t know when. He’s a hard man to pin down, quite honestly. He likes orchestrating everything and being in charge, so I don’t know when he’ll let down his guard enough to fall in love.

That’s not a lot of news, but that’s what I know at this very moment. Here’s your chance to tell me what you want. More HOT guys? More billionaires like you find in my Harlequins? As always, to keep up with the news from me, sign up for my newsletter by clicking here.

Happy New Year!!

Fun with Friends

Hockey Game with Stephanie

Went to a Huntsville Havoc hockey game with friends last night. This is me and one half of the Alicia Hunter Pace writing team (Stephanie Jones). Our team didn’t win, but we didn’t lose embarrassingly (2 to 3). It was still fun, though. Popcorn, cheering, and laughter with some of my favorite people. What do you do on Saturday night for fun?

Fill your e-reader with these Free books on December 26th!

Hot Rebel is out today!

The newest book in the Hostile Operations Team Series is here TODAY! If you’ve been waiting for some more HOT action, then now is your chance!

A rebel on the run…

Victoria Royal is a traitor. Or so the U.S. government believes. Victoria was once a promising sniper in the Army, but now she’s gone rogue—worse, she’s just landed in the middle of a Hostile Operations Team mission in the desert and blasted it all to hell.

Nick “Brandy” Brandon doesn’t expect to run into Victoria when he’s bugging out from a mission gone wrong. It’s been more than three years since she disappeared from the sniper course they were in together, and he’s finally stopped thinking about her killer curves and smart mouth.

But now she’s back—and she’s far more dangerous than Nick ever believed possible… Is she really a traitor? Or is there something more at stake? He has to decide fast—because time’s running out and too many lives hang in the balance…

Hot Ice Cover Reveal and Giveaway!

HotIce_600x900

When fire and ice collide, you get steam…

Grace Campbell leads a privileged life. The daughter of a United States senator, she moves within the social circles of the rich and famous. But Grace is also a scientist, and when someone learns she possesses the knowledge necessary to create a new super virus capable of destroying entire nations, she becomes a target for terror groups and foreign governments alike.

Garrett “Iceman” Spencer didn’t join the Army’s elite Hostile Operations Team to babysit a spoiled rich girl, but when his superiors insist on assigning him to a senator’s daughter as her security detail, he has no choice but to comply.

It’s a shock to find that beneath the glasses and serious scowl, Grace Campbell burns hot. And Garrett, who’s been burned before, suddenly wants to immerse himself in the flames.

Keeping Grace alive—and keeping his hands off her—is a full-time job for this HOT soldier. Failure is not an option…

HOT ICE releases December 29th. You can shelve the book on Goodreads here. You can also pre-order it at iBooks (coming to other retailers soon!) here.
