Holy moly, it's December already! And I have so much to tell you.
Our house is in full Christmas mode, all the trees and decorations up. It's my favorite time of year and our house is so cozy all done up for the holidays. I've been dragging the weasels out to various craft classes to get them in the holiday mood, so Big Weasel and I did a painting class on the weekend. He was less than thrilled with his finished product, but I think it looks fabulous. (He said, "Of course you think that, you're my mom!". haha)
In writing news, I'm so excited to be bringing you Vance and Carmella's story! I wanted to write something different for this one, so this past August, DH and I went on an Alaskan cruise for a research trip. No one on board suspected that I was secretly planning to use the tranquil setting for the mayhem I'd planned forSeized.
She’s strictly off limits.
But some rules were made to be broken…
HRT member Sawyer Vance wants Carmela more than anything. There’s only one problem—she’s his best friend’s sister, and that makes her officially off limits. He’s already learned the hard way the disastrous consequences that come from breaking that rule. But when she’s caught up in the biggest terrorist attack to hit the West Coast and her life is in imminent danger, the truth hits home hard. He realizes too late that nothing should have kept him away from her. When the terrorists begin killing hostages, Sawyer and his team must take the ship back at all costs. Now they’re in a fight for their lives against an enemy willing to die for its cause, and time is running out to save the surviving passengers.
At first I was like, O_O "Is this a trick question?". But when I realized she was serious, I responded with an enthusiastic "YES!!!".
So, you'll see all the HRT guys featured in Dead By Midnight. And let me tell you, this is NOT your usual Christmas story. It's actually the tautest, most nail-biting book I've read this year. If your'e a fan of the I-Team books, you're going to lose your mind over this one. And if you haven't read the series yet, what are you waiting for? Pamela's books are amazing, my favorites of which are Unlawful Contact (I love Marc!!!), Soul Deep (features middle-aged main characters), and this one.
I've just completed the draft of the next HRT story, Wanted, a long novella that will focus on Zoe and Bauer and include a bombshell announcement or two. I'm hoping for a late January or early February release.
Last month I also had the honour of meeting a former PJ! He has family here in the Vancouver area and contacted me asking if I'd sign a book for him. We met up for dinner and he was highly entertaining, and so interesting to talk with. He even brought me a Pararescue flash (goes on the maroon berets) and a little folded flag that was carried during a HALO jump in Iraq. I have him signed copies of Deadly Descent and Lethal Pursuit. Totally fair trade! haha
Finally, I'm part of a reader contest featuring books with SEAL heroes that you might like. Just click on the image below to enter. You can vote for Zoe and Bauer's book (Hunted) if you so choose!
Wishing you all a warm and wonderful holiday season, filled with great books!

I think the title is pretty self-explanatory, but yes! Pamela Clare is going to include my HRT guys in her upcoming I-Team Christmas story, due out in a few weeks.
I was tickled when she contacted me to ask if it was okay. So cool to see them in the pages of her story!
Here's her blog post on it if you want more details.
In other news, Vance's story is with my editor now and should release at the end of this month. Woot!

Hi, gang! Guess what? It's finally release day for Cruzie! Exposed is book 6 of the Hostage Rescue Team series and I'm hard at work on book 7 right now.
Hope you guys love Cruzie and Marisol together. I enjoyed writing this one a lot, especially the villain. Fingers crossed that I catch you off guard with the twists and turns in this one :).

Whew! Man, I loved writing about these two together.
In other fun news, both Rekindled (Alex and Grace's story, Titanium Security #5) and Hunted (HRT #3, Bauer--gah, Bauer!--and Zoe) have both finaled in the 2015 Aspen Gold contest. I'm especially tickled about Alex and Grace, since there aren't nearly enough romances out there featuring main characters their age. Love it!
Right now I'm hard at work on the next HRT book, Cruz's story. So far he's surprising me with how he's handling his attraction to the heroine. He's uh, not shy about taking matters into his own hands when necessary ;). After that I'll write Vance's story and finally Blackwell's, but I have one or two other surprise projects I'll be working on in the coming months as well that I'm pretty excited about.
Hope you all have a safe and fabulous summer!

Pride tore them apart…
Next up are two box set collaborations I'm part of. The first is Heroes In Uniform, a set of 11 romantic suspense books by a powerhouse lineup of talented authors I'm excited to be included in. My contribution is Danger Close (Bagram Special Ops #4), and there are two brand new books included in the set. It's up for pre-order right now and will release June 9th.
What am I working on next? Schroder's story--HRT book #5 :). Hope to release it in late summer.
Happy reading, everyone, and thank you so much!
