2018 RT Booklover’s Convention

I am so excited for RT this week!!  I’ll share photos and events with you from the Romantic Times Booklover’s convention in Reno, Nevada.

Greg Tremblay/Boudreaux Voice Actor (narrator for the Flashpoint Series)  arrived before me and posted this photo of the Flashpoint column ad. Can’t wait to see it and the Evidence ad! Syd Gill did an amazing job with both graphics.

Two New Release Recommendations

OMG. OMG. OMG. I’ve been waiting for this book since last summer!!!

Blurb:

After serving untold millennia as the leader of a demon special ops team with a brutal reputation for efficiency, Warrick of the Syx has seen it all, done it all, killed it all. Penance for his own damnation? Sure. But with the world running black with blood and magic, his skills are definitely in high demand.

This time, though…there’s a catch. And her name is Maria Santos. Beautiful, badass, and out for blood, Maria’s wrestling with her own dark secrets. The kind of secrets that call to Warrick’s twisted soul. A call he knows better than to answer.

Unfortunately, the dangerously tempting undercover cop is Warrick’s only ticket into the lockdown hellhole where a particularly vicious demon faction is boiling over, ready to unleash a new Armageddon on earth. If he wants them, he’s going to have to take Maria with him.

But the second she gets caught in the crossfire between Warrick and the scum of eternity, well…

Hell hath no fury like a Demon Unbound.

and Deceived (House of Sin Book 2) by Elisabeth Naughton is available now!! This series is AMAZING. You want it. You really want it.

Blurb:

Some doors were never meant to be opened…

I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world.

But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I love. The man I thought I could trust. The man who, despite his lies and deception, I continue to crave.

He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I have to be strong. I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me.

Lost forever in his wicked House of Sin…

TINDERBOX (Flashpoint #1)

In the volatile tinderbox of the Horn of Africa, Morgan Adler has made the paleoanthropological find of a lifetime. The discovery brings her to the attention of a warlord eager to claim both Morgan and the fossils, forcing her to make a desperate dash to the nearby US military base to beg for protection.

Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard has orders to intercept Dr. Adler before she reaches the base, and in so doing saves her life. After a harrowing afternoon he safely delivers her to his commanders, only to find his responsibilities toward protecting the obstinate archaeologist have only just begun.

Morgan and Pax are forced to work together in the Djiboutian desert heat, but it is the fire that ignites between them that threatens to combust them both. For the Green Beret, involvement with the woman he must protect is a threat to his career, while for the archaeologist, the soldier is everything she never wanted but somehow can’t resist. When Morgan uncovers a mystery surrounding Djibouti’s most scarce and vital resource, the danger to her reaches the flashpoint. For Pax, protecting her is no longer a matter of following orders, and he’ll risk everything to bring her back alive.

And in Romance World News…

You might’ve heard about a romance author behaving badly who applied for a trademark on the word “Cocky” and is now going after romance authors who’ve used the word in their titles telling them they have to change their titles or face a lawsuit. If you want more information you can check out #cockygate and #ByeFaleena here or on Twitter.

Here is a post from the absolutely lovely Donna Grant who shares stories of how romance authors usually handle shared titles, including our own story.

You see, when I put FIRESTORM up for pre-order, I discovered she has a book with the same title. Now, given that we share the same last name, this could be cause for confusion (and in fact, Barnes & Noble put her name in my book’s URL, which is why I didn’t share the Nook link for several days). I emailed Donna about the mixup and apologized for inadvertently using the same title, and I told her I plan to give her book a shoutout. (OMG have you seen the cover? It’s amazing. Plus I love sexy PNR and did you see the heroine is an archaeologist?! This might be destiny. https://amzn.to/2HSAnjz)

Anyway, Donna was wonderful and totally understood and she offered to give my book a shoutout too. Because this is what authors do, we lift each other up.

Geeks, Spies, Lies and Laughs! Pick up the Lexi Carmichael Mystery novella today! 🙂

Me and the legendary Zimmerman twins–it’s a friendship made in geek heaven. And it all started back when I worked for the NSA…
My best friend Basia dragged me to the beach for her idea of a vacation. All those annoying people, sand in embarrassing places–not exactly R & R for a girl who doesn’t like the sun, the ocean or bathing suits. I couldn’t wait to get back to work.
But things started looking up when I ran into Elvis and Xavier Zimmerman. We discovered we had a lot in common: gaming, anchovies, hacking. After that, the vacation was perfect–until I accidentally broke some poor guy’s fingers. Then Broken-Fingered Guy disappeared, and things got really dicey. With the Secret Service and a bunch of thugs suddenly after me, all I wanted was to solve the mystery and enjoy what was left of my vacation–preferably alive.

CIA covert operator Savannah James is after intel on a potential coup in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but she needs a partner fluent in Lingala to infiltrate the organization. Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan is the perfect choice, except he doesn’t like her very much. He doesn’t trust her, either, despite the sparks that flare between them, fierce and hot. Still, he accepts the assignment even though their cover requires Savvy to pose as his mistress.

 They enter battle-worn Congo to expose the financing for the coup. A trail of cobalt, gold, and diamonds leads them into the heart of darkness, a jungle in which everyone is desperate to find the mother lode of ore and gems. Betrayal stalks them as they follow the money, but Savvy will stop at nothing to bring down the would-be dictator before he can ignite a firestorm that will engulf all of Africa.
Deep in the sultry rainforest, spy and Green Beret forge a relationship more precious than diamonds, but Cal knows Savvy is willing to sacrifice anything—or anyone—to complete her mission. As they near the flashpoint, Cal will have to save her from the greatest threat of all: herself.

Have you read CATALYST (Flashpoint #2)?

.001

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about CATALYST. Here’s a snippet from the first night Bastian and Brie are together in South Sudan:

After the day Brie had just endured, it was crazy to realize she was stretched out on a grassy hilltop with Chief Bastard, laughing. But it felt right.

Plus, it was so much better than crying. “So. It’s been…quite a day.”

“Yep.” He plucked something from her hair—a twig, probably. Then combed out the short strands with his fingers. “You chopped off your hair,” he said idly, as if this was normal conversation after rescuing a woman from slavery and swamps.

“It’s easier to wash.” She wasn’t about to admit it had anything to do with him. She’d cut off a foot of hair because that was her usual reaction to rejection. No need to feed his ego, which was probably inflated enough as it was.

“I like it.”

She sighed as his fingers scraped her scalp. She was a sucker for scalp massages.

“If anyone told me ten years ago,” Bastian said, “we’d end up on a hilltop stargazing together in South Sudan, coated in mud after having escaped a slave market, I’d have told them they were nuts.”

She laughed. “I think it’s a nutty scenario for any two Americans, but admit we might be a more unlikely pair than most.”

“The second novel in Grant’s Flashpoint series offers intelligent romantic suspense that moves with the urgency of a thriller.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The Heroine of EVIDENCE #8 is…

.01

…..
….
….
….
….Hazel MacLeod!

Hazel is a forensic anthropologist. Her work puts her in a dangerous situation and Raptor operative Sean Logan is hired to be her bodyguard…but the threat is related to an investigation that must remain secret. To explain why Sean is with her 24/7 they pretend to be a couple, which gets awkward when Hazel attends Ian and Cressida’s wedding as Sean’s date.

I’m so excited to be writing in the Evidence world again and hope this book will be released late fall.

 

 

Two New Releases!

.01

Dashing adventurer Penn Bowen is dedicated to preserving Britain’s history and his carefree, bachelor lifestyle. He’s happiest when he’s in pursuit of knowledge and the occasional liaison with the right woman. So he’s more than a little perturbed when the wrong woman inserts herself into his latest quest—proving that a valuable artifact in Oxford’s museum is a fake. Amelia Gardiner is smart and capable…and determined to prove that Penn is wrong about the treasure her grandfather found.

Amelia won’t allow Penn to denigrate her family’s legacy, and she certainly won’t join the ranks of women who throw themselves at his feet. As secretive and dangerous factions infiltrate their hunt, Amelia and Penn must work together to stay one step ahead. But passion ignites between them and suddenly their alliance is more than a simple convenience. When peril strikes too close, they’ll risk everything they hold dear: family, honor, and a chance for the greatest treasure of all—love.

She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin…
He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist.
I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.
I know he is a threat. He’s entwined in a dangerous world I don’t understand. But that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.
Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.
I need to discover what he’s hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin…

Yes. She employed all caps for this tier 1 emergency. You see, without Necco wafers, our gingerbread houses won’t look as pretty.

NECCO is America’s oldest continuously operating candy company, turning out the chalky discs (and other confections) since 1847.

Salish Sea Conference

This past week, the Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference celebrated its 30th anniversary and hosted a conference that’s the largest and “most comprehensive event of its kind in the region. The purpose of the conference is to assemble scientists, First Nations and tribal government representatives, resource managers, community and business leaders, policy makers, educators, and students to present the latest scientific research on the state of the ecosystem, and to guide future actions for protecting and restoring the Salish Sea ecosystem.”  (from https://wp.wwu.edu/salishseaconference/)

Seeing trending on Twitter warms my heart. I loved writing about the Salish Sea in COLD EVIDENCE and my marine biologist hero and heroine would be eager for this conference.

The Squamish Tribe opened the conference, which was attended by 1300 people from the US and Canada.

After dozens of Lexington, Kentucky’s forgotten—mostly prostitutes and the homeless—swamp local hospitals from apparent overdoses over the 4th of July weekend, Kentucky cops soon discover a new synthetic form of heroin is infecting their communities, and that gangs—namely the outlaw motorcycle gang Samael’s Army—are responsible for using a “disposable”  population to test the new drug.

Soon after, the deadly new drug claims the daughter of a U.S. senator, and FBI Director Jack Waller assigns Brooke Fairfax to the case. Because the synthetic opioid was created in a lab, the feds turn to the expertise of billionaire chemist Declan O’Roark, who is all too happy to lend a hand if it will bring him closer to Brooke.

As Brooke and Declan are forced to work together, Declan attempts to tear down the barriers around Brooke’s heart. But when Brooke gets drawn into the depths of the outlaw motorcycle gang she’s investigating, she and Declan both fear for her life.

Former police officers Ellen Brazil and Brian Lynx have joined forces to start a successful missing persons investigation firm which has just been contracted to find the wife of bodybuilder Will Endersbe. Ellen discovers that a number of women with similar features and hair colour have also vanished in the Worcester area. Ellen and Brian suspect a serial kidnapper is to blame, and without a body, the police are happy to leave the case in their hands to solve.

Hoping the women are still alive, Ellen digs for clues and races to find the women, despite her troubled private life and a meddlesome stepfather with a violent secret.

“The second novel in Grant’s Flashpoint series offers intelligent romantic suspense that moves with the urgency of a thriller. The well-researched and timely plot finds the heroes confronting the realities of famine in South Sudan while unraveling a complex scheme to secure oil rights in the region. Although the conspiracy at the heart of the story is complex, Grant successfully unites the various plot threads, and the action is gripping without being gratuitously violent.”

 This week’s focus:  TINDERBOX

TINDERBOX (Flashpoint #1) is set in Djibouti, a tiny country on the Horn of Africa, home to the US’s only *permanent* military base on the continent. The US military sent my husband there twice to work on an archaeological inventory.  Visit my Facebook pages for more photographs of Djibouti!

In the volatile tinderbox of the Horn of Africa, Morgan Adler has made the paleoanthropological find of a lifetime. The discovery brings her to the attention of a warlord eager to claim both Morgan and the fossils, forcing her to make a desperate dash to the nearby US military base to beg for protection.

Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard has orders to intercept Dr. Adler before she reaches the base, and in so doing saves her life. After a harrowing afternoon he safely delivers her to his commanders, only to find his responsibilities toward protecting the obstinate archaeologist have only just begun.

For the Green Beret, involvement with the woman he must protect is a threat to his career, while for the archaeologist, the soldier is everything she never wanted but somehow can’t resist. When Morgan uncovers a mystery surrounding Djibouti’s most scarce and vital resource, the danger to her reaches the flashpoint.

Blurb:

Up-and-coming designer Kelsey McClane is on the cusp of success. Recently divorced, she should be enjoying her newfound freedom and glamorous future. Instead, she’s living in fear of the past. When she returns home to Portland on a press tour, danger creeps closer than ever. As threatening messages from her bitter ex-husband leave her vulnerable, a new man in her life makes her feel protected.

Former Army Ranger turned security professional Hunter O’Donnell is hired to guard Kelsey. When a shattering explosion rocks her world, Kelsey’s ex is the prime suspect, but Hunter speculates there’s more to the situation than Kelsey’s letting on. Intent on keeping her safe, he delves into Kelsey’s past. As the two work together to unmask her stalker’s identity, a fire ignites between them that they both struggle to contain.

While the investigation proceeds, it draws them closer not only to each other but also to a lethal plot that’s been in the works behind their backs. And with each new secret unveiled, it’s not just temptation putting them at risk—it’s a madman who will not stop until Kelsey is dead.

A Week of POISON EVIDENCE

With my husband in Palau on an archaeological project for the military,  I thought it would be a great time to highlight Poison Evidence.

The photos I’ve posted this week are from the gorgeous Rock Islands of Palau. Palau is also famous for Jellyfish Lake (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jellyfish_Lake) and some of the best scuba diving in the world.

 

poisonevidence-frontcover-fontv8

It was supposed to be paradise…

Ivy MacLeod has the perfect opportunity to test her advanced remote sensing technology: mapping a World War II battle site in the islands of Palau. The project is more than an all-expenses-paid trip to paradise. It’s also an opportunity to distance her reputation from her traitorous ex-husband.

But foreign intelligence agencies will kill to possess her invention, and paradise turns deadly when her ex-husband’s vicious allies attack. In desperation, she turns to Air Force pilot Jack Keaton. But is he the bigger threat? Jack might be protecting her as he claims…or he could be a foreign agent. Her compass is skewed by his magnetic pull and further thrown off when she learns her own government has betrayed her.

Stranded on a tropical island with a man whose motives remain a mystery, Ivy must decide who is the spy, who is the protector, and who is the ultimate villain. She longs to trust the man who rescued her, but she’s risking more than her heart. Choose right, and she saves her country’s secrets—and her life. Choose wrong—and she risks nothing short of all-out war.

National Geographic Reevaluates Their Coverage of People of Color

 

The Most Popular Post of the Week

We’re all curious about what happens to the human body in space.

 

and the intriguing clarification of the Scott Kelly story one day later:

 

According to The Atlantic, “what the NASA study found was that some of Scott’s genes changed their expression while he was in space, and 7 percent of those genes didn’t return to their preflight states months after he came back. If 7 percent of Scott’s genetic code changed, as some of the stories suggested, he’d come back an entirely different species.”

To read the rest of the article on what genes changing their expression means, click on the above photo or go to the article:  https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2018/03/scott-kelly-dna-fake-news/555794/
