First, You're Bound for Danger, and Now? Bound for Trouble

When I wrote Bound by Danger, it was a single title book. :) It's in part based on some of my military experiences, some on true case crimes, and well, the psychic business and the romance is pure fantasy. All the locations are real places I've either visited or lived. So it was a lot of fun for me to write this story. What I didn't expect was to have a great outpouring of love for the book and that fans wanted to see the next in the series. :) And I love it!!!

Army officer Deidre Roux has hidden her psychic abilities until now. But ominous visions plague her and between the martial arts tactics her twin brother taught her and the hand-to-hand combat she learned in the Army—she’s realizing just how important these skills are for her well-being.
When a reporter moves in next door, she’s not sure just what to think. Dave Carter owns a gun—it is Texas—and comes to her rescue when her brother suddenly drops into her life again. From there it’s the normal stuff that women and men tend to do when they’re getting to know each other—boating, swimming, dancing—except for one thing…she’s trying to keep her secret under wraps at all costs, which is difficult to do when she’s under surveillance by the FBI, and people keep wanting her dead.
Could a reporter, who’s not really a reporter, prove he might just have what it takes to keep her safe–for the long run?

And so goes the birth of a series! First, this story is also based on some of the places I've lived, as was In the Dead of the Night--and in that one, one of the FBI safe houses was the same one used by the FBI in Bound by Danger. :) 

In the Dead of the Night

Allan Thompson works for a special agency that takes down terrorists, but when he’s given the mission to protect one of Thurstan Wilson’s mistresses, he knows something isn’t right. Jenny Brant doesn’t have much time before she’s history and she has a plan, but what happens next turns her whole world inside out.
Allan Thompson arrives in Waco, Texas for a mission of utmost importance–protect a terrorist’s mistress from being the next victim on his hit list. But when the mission goes down wrong, Jenny Brant is nearly killed and Allan begins a new mission–protect her at all costs–as her faux husband until she can regain her memories.
Everything about the mission seems wrong–all starting with one Jenny Brant who doesn’t fit the profile of the kind of woman Wilson usually hooks up with. Allan and his team must protect her, but at what cost to his own sanity or his heart?
Jenny Brant begins to regain her memories, but when she learns she has a huge inheritance that Wilson wants by marrying her, and the agent Allan Thompson will marry her instead to secret her money away with the Agency’s protection, she still can’t remember why she would have been a killer’s main squeeze. When Wilson’s thugs try to return her to him, she becomes less sure of who the good guys are and who she truly is.
The only thing she knows for certain–if someone doesn’t take down Wilson, her life is forfeit.

 So we're again in Texas, and again Bound for... well, in this case Danger, of course, and so much Trouble. Isn't that great???

I'm still editing the story, and tweeking the cover, but what do you think? 

I did write 7,000 on Jaguar Pride over the weekend, 7,000 over my quota for the week. If I get lucky and the ending comes to me, I should have the end written by the end of the week.

But today, I'm going to run errands, have lunch out, and play at the zoo. So are you ready to be Bound for Trouble?

Okay, off to get another cup of hot green tea.

Have a super great Monday!

I'm ready!! Because I'm Bound to find Trouble . So you can save me the time. Bring it to me. :) Have fun running around today in your 70 degrees. While I shiver here with 21 degrees and its predicted to drop until Friday before it bounces back. Good thing I filled all feeders and birdbath yesterday. I'm glad you made your word count in the Jungle heat.

Thanks on the Jaguar Pride! 13,000 words to go, only I'm going to find some trouble to get into. Lunch out, trip to the zoo, then it's back to writing! :)

Stay warm and I'll be thinking of you! Though it's a 34 degrees chill factor right now. But it's GOING to get to 77!!! Now that has to be some record for Jan. Then tomorrow, high of 55, next day 65 and then 44. The weather is just tooooo bizarre.

Your weather is to bizarre for Texas. Have fun today. Don't get into to much trouble.

It is! I decided to wait until it warmed up a bit and had lunch at home. It went to 65 degrees already and is going to be 78.
