ABDUCTION, my latest Harlequin Intrigue, will be available in print tomorrow!! (Although I’ve already heard some readers have found copies on the shelves of their local Walmart stores.)
Once the town troublemaker, Sheriff Hayden Black became the teen hero who saved young Jillian West from a savage kidnapper. He never got over their brief affair. Now the ex-SEAL and the burned-out FBI agent have reunited in their Florida hometown and rediscovered their powerful attraction. But as they hunt down a long-forgotten killer, will they get a second chance at happiness? When a series of accidents begins to plague Jill, Hayden won’t let her fall victim again. There’s too much history between them…and too much desire.
(Quick note: Harlequin will be releasing the ebook version of ABDUCTION on 3/1/17.)

In less than a week, the print version of my new Harlequin Intrigue, ABDUCTION, will be on store shelves. So I thought I might chat a little today about the inspiration for that story.
Have you ever heard of the FBI’s CARD Team? CARD stands for Child Abduction Rapid Deployment. CARD Teams stand at the ready to assist in child abduction cases. When I learned about this group of FBI agents, I knew immediately that I had to write a book that featured them. These agents handle some of the most harrowing, painful cases out there–and those cases must take a heavy toll on them.
The heroine of ABDUCTION, Jillian West, was abducted as a child, and it’s because of her own experience that she joined the FBI. Once I had Jill and her motivation down…the rest of the story seemed to write itself.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
Happy 2017!!! I hope this is a wonderful year for everyone!!!
2017 has started off with a new release for me…Harlequin has released THE GATHERING DUSK, a 59 page prequel novella that introduces the characters in my “Killer Instinct” series.
What is the Killer Instinct series? It’s a brand spanking new dark and sexy romantic suspense series that I have written for HQN. The tales are gritty, full of twists and turns, but still sexy and hot–because that just makes stories fun, right?
THE GATHERING DUSK gives you an early glimpse at the characters who will fill the pages of the first “Killer Instinct” book, AFTER THE DARK (available in March).
Actually, I had the pleasure of doing something really fun with this series…in addition to the three 90,000 word books that I wrote for HQN, I also created Harlequin Intrigue tie-in books that relate to the secondary characters you will see in the HQN books. I’d been getting requests from readers for more Intrigues, so this seemed like a perfect way to launch a new series.
This is a full list of the books that I have coming from Harlequin this year:
THE GATHERING DUSK – 59 page prequel novella for the Killer Instinct series – Available now!
ABDUCTION – Harlequin Intrigue – February 2017
AFTER THE DARK – Book 1, Killer Instinct Series – March 2017
HUNTED – Harlequin Intrigue (again, this one is an Intrigue title, but you will see some familiar characters from the single-title books) – July 2017
BEFORE THE DAWN – Killer Instinct, book 2, published by HQN – July 2017
INTO THE NIGHT – Killer Instinct, book 3, published by HQN
I’m working to get pages for each of these books up on my website. So stay tuned–more information is coming your way!
Happy 2017!! May your year be filled with lots of great books to read!
