Since our fabulous trip to Oahu, during which a very generous reader took TWO DAYS off work to show us around and take me to all the military bases on island, I've been super busy puppy training. PJ is a great little guy but of course the training and housetraining are taking up tons of my time right now. He's even got a perfect little heart marking on his right shoulder--I take this as proof that he was destined to belong to a romance author!
Right now while I'm waiting for edits to come back for Danger Close, I'm slowly working on a novella for Jake Evers (the Fed you met in the Titanium Security Series), which will launch the new series I'm starting that will feature members of the FBI's fabled Hostage Rescue Team (HRT).
I'm also doing up mini box sets for both the last two books of the Titanium Security Series and the last three books of my Suspense Series, so look for those to release within the next month.
Hope all is well with you!

Some of you might not be aware yet, but I'm finishing up the next book in the Bagram Special Ops series and hoping to put it out in late April.
This fourth book will feature Erin and Sandberg, and it will be focused more on the romance and much, much less on the military detail than I have in the previous books of the series. In fact, the book begins at Bagram but takes place mostly stateside. I thought it was time for a change and it works with the story arc so I'm happy with the change of scenery.
Here's the gorgeous cover for Danger Close:
Also, I'd like to introduce you to PJ (that's short for Pararescue Jumper, of course).
He's an eight week old Cavalier King Charles spaniel, but in this picture on the first time I got to meet him, he's six weeks old. I've been bugging DH for ten years to allow us to get a dog, and both our boys desperately want one as well. They've asked Santa for a dog the past three years running, they keep asking for one as a birthday gift, and they write about a dog in their homework assignments. It's time!
DH and I had a really bad experience with our last dog a decade ago, which is why it's taken so long for him to agree to this (even though he's made it clear he wants nothing to do with the dog, so this is all on me).
Anyway, I'm beside myself with excitement and can't wait to bring him home at the end of March when we get back from vacation. The boys have no idea I've bought a puppy, so I'm just going to surprise them and bring him home on the 25th. I can't wait to see their reactions!

I have so much to share with you this post! Okay, here goes...
First off, Rekindled is officially live on Amazon. It will appear in the near future on Barnes & Noble, Kobo and iBooks (Apple), and in paperback as well. Woot! I'm so excited for you to read Alex and Grace's story.
Secondly, I've bundled the first three books of the Titanium Security Series, for those of you who prefer box sets. This first set includes Ignited, Singed and Burned, for $5.99.
Here are the gorgeous new covers and the scoop on the new editions:
Book #1, Out of Her League: has been heavily revised, and I'm offering it for $0.99 until the end of the month. It's basically still the same storyline, but stronger and tighter.
Book #2, Cover of Darkness: has not been changed at all, since my publisher still holds the rights and will continue to do so for several more years.
No Turning Back: same story, only tighter.
Absolution: my favorite book of the series! I've tightened it and tweaked a few things. I love the cover image of Luke with his distinguished head of gray-streaked hair, and Em wearing her long wig while she faces her brave battle with breast cancer.
I hope you love this new look for the Suspense Series as much as I do! I'll be holding a Facebook and Twitter party to celebrate the release of Rekindled in about 10 days, so stay tuned for more details!
Until then, happy reading.

Rekindled (Titanium Security Series #5, Alex and Grace's story) is with my proofreader now, and it's still on track to release toward the end of January. In the meantime, I'm beginning a new project I hope all of you will be very excited about once I announce it :). I'm planning many new and wonderful stories for this year.
Here's to a shiny, fabulous 2014!

Happy holidays to all of you out there who celebrate! Things are moving at warp speed here, as they seem to do every year at this time. I've finished with Rekindled (Titanium Security #5) and it's now with my editor.
As an early Christmas surprise, here's the fabulous cover and blurb for Rekindled! Should release at the end of January. Isn't it fabulous? I love how the cover artist put all kinds of salt into Alex's hair. He is 51, after all.
Hope you all have a fabulous holiday season! I'll be taking a break from the keyboard until the New Year, but my muse will be plotting like mad in the meantime, getting ready to start my next project.
All the best to you and yours,

Guess what? Dangerous Attraction just hit the New York Times list! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Thank you so much to all my wonderful readers who helped put the box list there!
And in other great news, Extinguished is now live! Right now it's up everywhere but Kobo and iBooks, where it should appear shortly. You can find the buy links on my website.
I'm so excited for you all to read Blake and Jordyn's story. I had the pleasure of passing research questions to a former Marine Scout/Sniper for this one, so you know how much I enjoyed learning everything he told me. I hope you learn a thing or two about snipers that you didn't before.
For years former Marine Jordyn Bridger has been in love with a man who refused to see her as anything but his best friend’s little sister. A mind-blowing kiss finally changed that, but then he disappeared from her life. Now he’s back, to recruit her for a job with his NSA-sanctioned Titanium Security team. They’re going after the terrorist responsible for the recent attacks on their team and Jordyn is eager to lend her skill set to the hunt. She’s determined to prove to Blake that she’s capable of holding her own—both in the bedroom and on the battlefield.
He’s never walking away again…
Former Marine Scout/Sniper Blake Ellis hid his true feelings for Jordyn for years out of respect for her and her family, but once he learns those feelings aren’t one-sided, he can’t keep his distance any longer. When a team tragedy thrusts Jordyn into the front line with him on a battlefield, Blake will do whatever it takes to protect her. She’s everything he ever wanted in a woman but he was too stubborn to see it. Now it might be too late for them. As they race to capture the terrorist they’re hunting, Blake and Jordyn find themselves fighting for their lives. If they want to make it out alive they must work together to defeat an unseen, powerful network that will stop at nothing until their entire team is dead.
