I was disappointed this morning when I read an email that said Engaging his Enemy was a finalist in the National Excellence in Storytelling contest. Then I saw a second email from the same address, and read that Holding his Hostage had come in first! I love Sloan’s story and I’m thrilled readers do, too! Something about a single mom, her kids, and her high-school sweetheart all on the run in a Winnebago… what’s not to love?
I’m excited to share the latest book in my Shattered SEALs series, Fighting his Fate, has finaled in the Carolyn’s Reader’s Choice contest. Brett and Grace’s story is one of my favorites and I’m looking forward to seeing how it does!
For the first time in my writing career, I set aside several books half-finished. (2020 will do that do you, with homeschooling and hand sanitizer and stress and all.) So while I’d intended to have Mac’s book be the next and final book in the Shattered SEALs series, I’ve decided to pickup one or two of those half-finished books and sprinkle them in the middle. I’m wrapping up one that I LOVE right now, Fighting his Fate, where a sworn bachelor finds himself the guardian of twin infant boys, and needs the help of his all-too-tempting nurse neighbor to help him. But of course, nothing is as simple as it seems, and someone’s out to kill the babies and anyone who stands in their way. SO FUN. Watch for that one this summer, and don’t worry, Mac’s story is also half-done and will be out soon!
This was exciting, guys! Holding his Hostage was a finalist for the HOLT Medallion, a romance writing award by the Virginia Romance Writers. I don’t enter many contests, so it was a thrill to be nominated. Sloan and Joanne’s story is one of my favorites (kids and a dog… what’s not to love?) and I’m so glad the book was loved by readers, too.
I’m supposed to be writing Sloan’s story for Shattered SEALs, but my latest release Resisting his Target also showed Cowboy desperately wanting to marry Charlotte (the couple from Harbored by the SEAL) and Charlotte refusing to go along with his plan.
Well, damned if Cowboy won’t leave me alone!! The son of a gun keeps talking to me, so today I sat down and opened a new Scrivener file just to see what happened. POOF, the words were flowing! So now I need a title and a (third–OMG what am I doing) pre-order to get this baby rolling, because I do NOT turn my back on free-flowing words.
So good to see Cowboy and Charlotte again. They’re two of my favorites, and I can already tell they have some surprises in store for me, and I may not be able to call this a “wedding story” after all!!
