The new SBG novel from the author of Exchange of Fire—“if you enjoy military action, suspense, steamy romance, and a little danger, this is the series for you” (Library Journal).
When her secretly filmed tryst shows up on the internet, Michelle Alger goes on the run. She has no choice. Not only was her one-night stand the son of a US senator, but he’s been murdered—and she’s the number one suspect. With both the senator and an avenging drug lord on her trail, her life is in danger. There’s only man she can trust. He saved her once, but will he still be her hero six years later?
Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery. Six years ago his team of Green Berets rescued her from the torturous clutches of a Columbian cartel, and he’s never forgotten her. His personal and covert mission: find Michelle before anyone else. When he and Michelle do meet again, the sparks are explosive and consuming. They’re also dangerous as hell.
Because with each new bit of evidence, Jeremy suspects that Michelle’s innocence may be a ruse—a beautiful trap set by a woman who has even more secrets yet to bare.
Praise for Exchange of Fire

Happy Thanksgiving (USA Celebrators)

Happy Thanksgiving (USA Celebrators)



For those in the USA, I wish you a very heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving!! (For those outside of the USA, I wish you a happy Thursday! 😀 )

I’m humbled to say I have so many blessings I’m thankful for I couldn’t possibly list them all in this post. I’ll stick with the top ten–I’m almost positive I’m going to want to change this list about a billion times because so many things should make this list:

1. My health and well-being

2. My husband–he is my best friend and my rock

3. My fans/followers–you all are the best and I’m grateful everyday you’re on this publishing journey with me

4. My agent Michelle Grajkowski–she’s amazing and I owe a lot to her fabulousness

5. My publishers–Penguin (SBG Series) and Soul Mate Publishing (Guardian Redeemed)

6. My family–both mine and my husbands

7. My friends–you guys rock. You seriously do.

8. My home and the food in my cabinets

9. My just-left-of-center way of looking at the world–it’s with this ability I’m able to write

10. God–He shouldn’t be listed last and in my heart He’s not.

11. Okay, I know I said top 10 but I couldn’t leave off all the contacts I’ve made who’ve helped me realize my publishing dream. This includes the experts who helped with the story, the bloggers who helped get the word out, and the reviewers who took a chance on a new author and spent their time reading my books.

As I look at this list, I want to keep writing  “1” down in the row and not have the other 2-11 numbers.

I hope everyone out there has been as blessed as I have been and I wish nothing but amazing things to come in the next year.

Established November 10th, 1775 in Philadelphia as an infantry force for both sea and land, I’m honored to say my father was once a USMC sergeant. As a combat veteran, he received a Purple Heart due to a run in with a hand grenade. Ooh Rah!

I’m so thankful to all the men and women like my father who serve and protect this country and all the freedoms I enjoy.

Sexy Snippet from SHADOW OF DOUBT

Sexy Snippet from SHADOW OF DOUBT

Hey All!

As I’m working on the edits for book 2, Shadow of Doubt, I’m feeling the need to post a little sexy snippet. It’s just a little taste, but wow, I can’t wait for you to read this whole scene . 😀


[Cappy] froze and she tightened her hand. Was he going to pull away?
“You want this too, Cappy,” she whispered, a breath away from his mouth. “Just as badly as I do. No more excuses. One kiss. If it sucks we’ll never speak of it or repeat it again.” Her fingers caressed the stubbly hair at the base of his neck. “But if it doesn’t…”
He groaned. “The Fates hate me right now.” His eyes burned with fire. “It’s going to be a mind-blowing, life-altering event. I just know it.” He dropped her hand and grasped both sides of her head, closing the distance.
The second his lips met hers she knew he was right.

OMG! Squeals.

I can’t wait for you to read Cappy and Michelle’s story!! It comes out April 21, 2015. Want to read more about the storyline or need the link to the board I’ve created on Pinterest? Click here. 🙂

Until next time!
