DEADLY SEDUCTION Release Day!!!!!!

Available NOW!

I’m so excited that today is the book birthday of the 6th book in my bestselling NY State Trooper Series: DEADLY SEDUCTION.

I started this book on this idea: What if the woman you were sleeping with was sent to destroy you?

The only other thing I knew was the hero’s name: Josh Burdett, who showed up for the first time in TO PROTECT HIS OWN. I knew he was an only child and that had been shot in the line of duty, nearly dying while undercover in NYC, but I didn’t know much more than that. I had to ask myself why would someone want to destroy him and why would the heroine sleep with him to do it? Once I answered that question, I had my story.

Delaney Mervis is a bit naive of the world and was easily taken advantage of because of her deep loyalty to what little ‘blood’ family she had left. This book dives deep into the bonds that tie both family and friends together and when to break those bonds. Both Josh and Delaney will have to over come betrayal and harsh truths about themselves and those they loved in order to find each other in the end.

I hope you will enjoy the ride to Josh and Delaney’s happily-ever-after. As also, please feel free to leave an HONEST review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Finally, I have a private Facebook Group where I give away swag, free eBooks, early excerpts, character naming contents, and Advanced Reader Copies.

Thanks!

Murder, Mayhem, and Love. It’s all in day’s work!

MURDER IN PARADISE BAY is only .99 for the next few days, so grab it while it’s hot!

I love all the books I’ve written and adore all the characters, which is why I like to write series with a large and expanding community so that I can revisit the people I’ve created and catch up on what is happening in their lives. MURDER IN PARADISE BAY is the 4th book in the NY State Trooper Series and Stacey Sutten is one of the strongest female leads from the get go. She’s a very confidant young woman at twenty-five. Raised by a single dad, who had her at 17, she’s developed a very thick skin, a mouth like razor, and tenderness that is untouchable. I love her because her arch isn’t about gaining confidence, or strength, but giving it. Throughout the book, she has to give it to her father, the love of her life, even the people she works with. But her growth as a woman comes from learning how to lean on others and let them into her soul, especially Doug Tanner.

What I love about Doug is he’s humble man. Having been homeless until fifteen when Stacey’s father takes him in, has taught him the value of a kind heart and honest work. What is interesting about Doug is that he is 9 years younger than Stacey’s father, and 9 years older than Stacey. Even more interesting is that at 15 and throughout his young adult life, he’d been Jim’s (Stacey’s father) best friend and eventual business partner. Jim helped Doug go to college and become an architect. Jim felt strongly that he couldn’t bring a woman into their lives. He wanted to be a dedicated father and he focused all his attention on Stacey and his growing business…then Doug.

But as Stacey grew up, graduated from college, and became a State Trooper, a shift in relationships occur and while Doug will always be Jim’s business partner, its obvious to everyone that Doug and Stacey are destine to be together…even her father.

So, I came up with Doug, Stacey, and her father, Jim back in 2005. Really, not kidding. I wrote their story (though Stacey was a dance teacher, NOT), but the background was the same and Doug was accused of killing his late wife. But I knew the book/story wasn’t right, but these three characters wouldn’t leave me alone! So when I needed to introduce my next State Trooper in DEADLY SECRETS, all of a sudden, Stacey waltzed into the station house and blew my mind.

I love how writing works.

The story flew from my brain to my fingers, partly because I’ve lived with this people for like EVER!

Stacey will always hold a special place in my heart. She’s the only female trooper in the series and she’s one kick ass female! ¬†And Doug? Oy. All my hero’s have man crushes on him.
