HOT Angel is HERE! And a Giveaway!

It's finally here, y'all! HOT Angel is out TODAY! Can you believe how far HOT has come? In 2013, HOT Pursuit hit the shelves. Five years later, we're celebrating the 12th book in the HOT series. But these aren't the only HOT books. There's also the HOT SEAL Team, which has the 5th book coming out in just two months! May 15th is the day to get HOT SEAL Redemption. That's a total of 17 HOT books (18 when you count HOT Witness, which is a novella in Liliana Hart's MacKenzie World). Are you ready for MORE HOT books? Because I have more coming this year, and more in general. HOT is about to branch out into a few more teams I think you might enjoy. The HOT world is huge and capable of holding a lot of amazing men and women. I hope you'll agree!

Excerpt

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.

Cade.

“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…

EXCERPT

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.

HOT ADDICTION is out TODAY! I'm so excited that I wanted to give some shiz away. Check this out, and be sure to tell your friends about this HOT, sexy military man and the lady who broke his heart. This book is a wild ride, I swear!

From New York Times bestselling author Lynn Raye Harris comes the next explosive story in the Hostile Operations Team series!

Tell Dex I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have let it go this far. I’ve thought for a while that marrying him wasn’t right, that I’m not the woman for him—I should have been brave enough to say so. He deserves more.

When Dex “Double Dee” Davidson was abandoned at the altar by the woman he loved, he threw himself into his military career, training hard enough to get accepted into the elite Black Ops unit known as HOT. The love he felt for Annabelle Quinn burned to ash in the face of her betrayal—so when she crashes back into his life and begs him to save her, he has no problem laughing in her face.

Blackmailed into jilting Dex and forced into an abusive marriage, Annabelle never thought she’d escape the hell of the last five years. But her husband died a month ago and she’s finally free. Except she isn’t. Someone claims that Eric stole a fortune—and they want it back. If she doesn’t return it within twenty-four hours, she’ll be dead—and so will her young daughter. With time running out, Annabelle has no one to turn to. No one except Dex.

When Dex learns that Annabelle’s husband committed treason against the US by selling a top secret military project to the Russians, he has no choice but to get involved. He’ll protect Annabelle and her child, and he’ll find out who’s threatening her. But he won’t fall for her intoxicating sensuality ever again. And if he discovers the secret she’s been hiding from him? It’ll be game over for good…

Another explosive, high-octane thrill-ride from New York Times bestselling author Lynn Raye Harris!

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.

Need to catch up on the H.O.T. series? I'm hosting a giveaway for a set of print copies of Hot Pursuit, Hot Mess, Hot Package, and Hot Shot.

And don't forget that HOT REBEL, Book 6, is coming on September 29th!!!

HotRebel_600x900

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…

Mondays

I got up this morning, all set to fix my coffee and climb back into bed with the laptop. I was wearing my Hello Kitty pajamas, the ones with the fleece pants, and I was so happy I have the sort of job where I could sit in my bed with my coffee and work while still in my pajamas. Heaven, I tell you!

But then I remembered, as I took my Let It Snow coffee mug down from the shelf, that we'd used up all the cream yesterday. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth, friends. The choices before me: drink my coffee black; have tea; skip the morning beverage.

Those are not choices when you really want coffee. So I had to pull on clothes and drive a mile to the grocery store. I was the woman with bedhead who grabbed a bag of cat food (they're out after the morning meal), two pints of organic half and half, and a box of Weight Watchers turkey sausage breakfast sandwiches.

I did all that so I could go back to bed with a cup of coffee and a computer. 😉

Tell me what lengths you've gone to for your coffee (or tea). I'd love to know. I might give away a prize to the best story. How about a $10 Starbucks card and a signed paperback?

Alpha Heroes and Kimchee

Welcome to all the new subscribers to this blog! I'm astounded by how many of you have joined up lately, and feeling a little guilty that I haven't posted anything fabulously interesting recently. How about this for interesting?

One of the things Harlequin does extremely well is translate books into foreign languages and distribute them in lots of global markets. I *love* getting copies of my translations! Here's my first Korean translation: THE MAN WITH THE MONEY, book 5 in the Notorious Wolfes series.

Something you may not know about me is that I love Korean food! I spent two months there back in 1998/1999, and I fell in love with the food. Bring on the kimchee, baby! Love it. One of my favorite things is Yuk Gae Jang, a very spicy soup that just makes me so happy when I have it. Mmmm.

Quick couple of announcements: if you haven't subscribed to my newsletter yet, you should! I'm going to start holding a drawing on the first of every month for a $50 gift card to Amazon, B&N, or Kobo. All you have to do is be a subscriber. Nothing else.

Secondly, if you haven't gotten a copy yet, MADDIE'S MARINE is now FREE on all the major outlets! Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iTunes, and Smashwords. I'm not sure the price change has trickled out to international outlets yet, but if not, you can always get it free right here on this site or from Smashwords, which has no geographical restrictions.

Now isn't this cover pretty? 🙂
