“HOT Dog!!! This series is already amazing and Black Out just adds to mix.” ~ Patti, Goodreads

“Another intriguing, fast paced and engrossing suspense thriller by Lynn Raye Harris.” ~ B, Goodreads

“Colton can speak French to me and cook a five star meal for me any day!” ~ Cassie, Goodreads


Angelica Turner’s life is in danger. If she wants to survive, she’ll have to turn to a man with violence in his eyes and death in his soul. A man she desires, yet desperately needs to resist if she doesn’t want her heart shattered again.

Hardened mercenary Colton Duchaine has wanted Angie since he first laid eyes on her, but he knows he’s the wrong kind of man for an innocent woman like her. His life is too dangerous, too unpredictable. He can never settle down.

But when someone wants Angie silenced, Colt will do whatever it takes to keep her alive. And when she’s safe, he’ll get out of her life for good.

Turns out that walking away is easier said than done. Angie is his—and Colt will stop at nothing to claim her for his own.

Life of a writer

Hey, y'all! It's January 2020 and I can hardly believe I've been writing books professionally for nearly 12 years. I sold my first book to Harlequin in October 2008 and it was published in August 2009. That book, called SPANISH MAGNATE, RED-HOT REVENGE, belongs to me again — and I'm planning to refresh and republish it this year. I don't yet know how much new material I'll add, but I'm working on it as I have time in between my HOT world books. When I put it up again, it will be with a new title, new blurb, and new cover. But I'll make sure to state the book's been published before for those who don't want to buy it again.

What else is happening in 2020? This is what I intend to work on, though you never know. Things change.

BLACK OUT, Book 3 in the Black's Bandits series
HOT SEAL DEVOTION, Book 8 in the HOT SEAL Team series
HOT STORM, Book 15 in the HOT series
SPANISH MAGNATE, which I already told you about (with a new title, though I'm not revealing it yet)
Book 4 in the Black's Bandits series

That's a lot, and we'll see how well I do. I know some writers put out a book a month, but that's never going to be me. Not if you want my plots to make sense and have depth (because I need the thinking time). Besides, I don't know about you, but if my favorite authors put out a book a month, I can't keep up with the reading. 😕

Aside from the writing, this is also the year of Lynn getting into the best shape possible. I lost 24 pounds in 2019 and that was a terrific feeling — but now I'm taking a hard look at my diet and making some changes. Less processed food. More whole food, especially plants. Less meat and dairy. So far, it hasn't been hard to choose the plant over the yummy meat. I hope it continues.

Reggie and I are entering a new division this year (5-gaited show pleasure, woohoo!) so we've been working hard at practicing our new gaits. He's the best horse and I love him. He does whatever I ask without complaint (mostly) and he gives his all. I couldn't ask for a better partner in the show ring.

And now it's time to get back to work. BLACK OUT is coming in February! Did you pre-order your copy yet? You can do that here:

Cover reveal is coming soon!!!

HOT SEAL HERO has a cover, y’all!

Woohoo, HOT SEAL HERO has a cover! Have you seen this baby yet? I mean whoa and wowzers and all that stuff, amiright? You know, I write about military men and women because it's a life I've been a part of pretty much my whole life. Who knew it would lead to this absolutely wonderful career of telling stories?? Mr. Harris isn't active duty anymore, but we're still friends with people from those days. In fact, I've got company here right now that we met 21 years ago in Korea. They are part of our Air Force family, and we've had a lot of adventures together over the years. Continuing the traditions to this day. Here we are enjoying a tour of the Tenn South Distillery in Lynnville, TN a few days ago.

Now I'm sure you're ready for that cover, right? I mean if you haven't seen it yet. And if you have seen it, then you certainly don't mind seeing it again. Heh. You can pre-order EVERYWHERE. Not long until release day! If you're new to the HOT SEAL TEAM, you can read out of order. I know that most of you don't like to do that, though. So this is Book 7, and I promise you get a complete story in every book. No cliffhangers in this series! Happily Ever After Guaranteed.

She fears for her life.
He’ll risk his to protect her.
Falling in love? Not part of the plan…

Chloe Cooper is on the run from an abusive ex. Living in a new state, with a new name, she’s ready to focus on rebuilding her life. She’s got a job she loves, a new home—and a sexy Navy SEAL neighbor who makes her pulse flutter in spite of her determination not to get involved. But when a threatening message arrives, her dread about what her ex will do if he finds her forces her to make a choice.

Ryan “Dirty Harry” Callahan is protective by nature. When he meets Chloe, it’s clear she’s skittish about something. When he learns why she ran from her old life, his first objective is to keep her safe. His second is to make sure she knows she can trust him—and that she’ll have a posse of Navy SEALs at her back if she ever needs them.

When the attraction between Ryan and Chloe explodes, they’re helpless to resist its seductive heat. Everything is finally going right for Chloe—until her worst fears come true. With Chloe missing and her life on the line, Ryan will stop at nothing to get her back. Before he loses the woman he loves forever.

“Magic sperm, Bailey. I could father six kids before I knew what happened to me. Hell, my luck, it’d happen all at once.”

Bailey winced. “Ouch.”

“Yeah, ouch is right.”

She grinned at him. “Well, sure, ouch for you too—but I was thinking more about the poor woman who would have to carry six babies in her belly before popping them all out. What a nightmare.”

“And now you know why I wrap it tight.”

Unexpected heat flared beneath her skin. Holy shit, was that a blush? Really? But the thought of this man standing in front of her with a hard-on, his hand wrapped around it as he slid on a condom, was almost unbearably sexy.

He cocked his head. “Are you blushing?”

Hell. So much for being cool. “A little. Maybe.” Why deny what he could clearly see happening?

“Over birth control?”

Bailey rolled her eyes. “Not over birth control, you idiot. More or less the thought of you putting the condom on.”

His gaze went smoky—and then it dropped over her body, slowly, before rising again. Their eyes met. Held. Her heart pounded. No, no, no. Bad idea. So bad.

“I’d be happy to give you a personal demonstration.”

She heard footsteps and spun around. A tall, dark-haired man with muscles that went on for days stood with a beer in his hand and gazed back at her.


“Hi,” she said, her heart pounding.

“Hi. How’ve you been?”

Brooke laughed nervously. But was it because he was big and tough and capable of violence? Or because he made butterflies swirl in her belly?

“Fine. Nothing’s changed since the last time I saw you.”

“Which was a week ago at Buddy’s.”

“Yes.” She’d seen this man half a dozen times over the past month, each time for a few minutes only, but she still remembered the first time. At Colonel Mendez’s wedding last month when she’d been drunk and angry with herself for being so pitiful. She hadn’t had sex in forever, hadn’t felt a man’s touch or the comfort of being held close, and her inhibitions were down because she’d had too much champagne. If Garrett and Grace hadn’t shown up when they did, she probably would have gone home with Cade Rodgers.

And she didn’t know how that would have turned out because she still had so many issues she might have freaked out in the middle of the whole thing. Or maybe she’d have been thrilled she’d gotten over her fear of big men who lived lives of violence—but probably she’d have run home and locked herself away for days.

He ambled closer, heading around the island and depositing the beer bottle on the counter. He took another from the fridge and popped the top. But he didn’t hurry back to the other room.

“You don’t say much, do you, Brooke?”

“I…” She swallowed. “Of course I do.”

“Not to me you don’t.”

“I don’t really know you, do I?”

“We could change that.”

Brooke blinked. Her belly swirled faster. Heat flared in her cheeks. Why?

She might not have had sex in two years, but she’d dated. Sort of. She wasn’t afraid of men. Correction—she wasn’t afraid of certain kinds of men. Mostly. Accountants, for instance. Those tended to be men without huge muscles or semi-automatic weapons strapped to their sides. She was wary but not terrified.

“H-how?” was the word that came out of her mouth, though she’d intended to say no.

“How do you usually get to know someone?”

“I, uh…”

He grinned and the swirlies whooshed into a tornado. “By talking. Asking questions. Maybe sharing a meal or a drink.”

“You mean a date.”

“A date. A conversation. Whatever you’re comfortable with.”

“I, um…”

He held up a hand. “Or you can say no thanks and I’ll be on my way. No pressure.”

The swirlies dipped in disappointment for a second. Her heart throbbed. “A conversation. Give me your number and I’ll call you sometime.”

“Give me yours and I’ll call you now. You can capture it.”

Brooke found herself rattling off her number before she could change her mind. A moment later, her phone rang where she’d laid it on the countertop. Then it stopped.

“Rodgers with a D,” he said, winking at her. “Whenever you’re ready.”

Hot Angel Cover Reveal & Giveaway!

Can you believe all this HOTNESS? Seriously, I'm thinking Cade “Saint” Rodgers is looking anything but saintly over here!

Agree? Keep reading for an excerpt, links, and a giveaway!

BOOK: HOT ANGEL (Book 12 in the Hostile Operations Team Series)

DATE: March 13, 2018

She's damaged…

Brooke Sullivan's carefully ordered existence is spiraling out of control. Two years ago, she was violently abducted by a terrorist group and nearly killed. She's worked hard to get her life back on track–moving to a new house, changing careers, going on a couple of dates. When she witnesses a murder, she's plunged into a new nightmare. And as the past threatens to repeat itself, she's not sure she'll survive this time.

He's ruthless…

Cade “Saint” Rodgers never forgot the beautiful girl he talked to at the wedding of his commanding officer. Now she's in trouble, and he's the one tasked with protecting her. Brooke is terrified of men like him–a Black Ops soldier for whom violence is a way of life–which makes falling for her a terrible idea. But that won't stop Cade from using every sensual trick he's got to make her believe anything is possible if only she wants it badly enough.

Together, they're combustible…

As danger draws closer, it'll take all of Cade's strength–and all of Brooke's determination–to learn how to let go of the past and trust each other. But it might not be enough. To keep her safe, he may have to let her go forever…


He thought for a minute, wondering if he should go in the direction he wanted to go or not. He’d either scare her or he’d get her mind off the things worrying her. So you’re in bed, he began. What are you wearing?

He added a winky face and hoped she didn’t take offense.

She sent back a laughing-so-hard-I’m crying emoji. What’s next, Cade? A dick pic?

He snorted. No way. I don’t send dick pics. It has to be seen in person to be believed.

Oh my God, you did not just imply your dick is amazing, did you?

You said it, not me. He sent the wow emoji back.

She sent back an eggplant. He laughed. This girl was too fun.

You planning to tell me what you’re wearing or not?

Brooke: I’m wearing my Wonder Woman jammies. T-shirt, shorts, no bra. Very exciting.

Cade: I could get excited about that. How short are the shorts?

Brooke: Very.

Don’t suppose you’d send a selfie? He added the laughing emoji.

She didn’t respond and he figured he’d scared her off. But then a picture came across his phone and his heart practically stopped. Her face wasn’t in it, but there was a close up shot of boobs stretching her shirt and little tiny shorts hiked up to the tops of her thighs. She was lying in bed, soft light spilling over her skin.

Cade’s dick went from zero to sixty in a heartbeat.
