In the Dead of the Night is in Print! And on Google Play Now!

Take a hot guy and an interested woman and a stormy sea and you've got a romantic suspense, right?

The home where the story takes place was my last home and so it was fun setting it there in the hot Texas location, cornfields in front of us, houses on either side, cows in the field next to me, darkness all around.

They stay at a safe house on Grand Cayman Island, and I had visited there, and the sand was just as I described it.

The next safe house is at Keene, New Hampshire. It's the same FBI safe house that the folks from Bound by Danger stayed at.

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?

That was my in-laws vacation house, and I enjoyed going there and doing all that she got to do.

And the military part--I was stationed at Fort Hood.

But when I was at all those locations, well except for her first home, I never thought of writing a romantic suspense for any of those places. Who would ever have thought? :)

Though I did write that story while I lived in "her" house. I could envision it all happened, right there. :)

And now it's in print!

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.

Speaking of danger, I am now working on Call of the Cougar!

This is the sequel to Cougar's Mate!
They're going to have a time of it!

But that's the way you like it, right???

Okay, off to write before any more of the day slips away! And it's time to open up the blinds to let in some blue light. :)

Have a super Tuesday!
