Post 6: A Heroine with a Cause
Title: TAKING FIRE by Lindsay McKenna: A heroine with a cause
One of the hallmarks of my writing, as my loyal readers will agree with, is that I write ‘fresh.’ Well, what does that mean? It means I’m not writing what everyone else is writing. I want to write from different slants and perspectives than are normally thought of to write from.
I wanted to create a heroine who was not a SEAL, but worked in deep black ops. This is an area that few can write about except those who have been in the military, or who have great military consultants who can give them useful information in defining and creating a character who is in this super secretive area of undercover work.

5 Reasons That Private Investigators Make Great Heroes by Rebecca York
As unlikely as it sounds, the heroes of my Rockfort Security romantic suspense series—Jack Brandt, Shane Gallagher and Max Lyon—met in a Miami holding cell, after they were swept up in a drug raid at a nightclub. There they banded together to keep order among a bunch of drunks and druggies. And after they made bail, they went out for beers. During the night, they’d recognized each other’s strengths and decided to form the Rockfort Security Agency. Jack is a former Navy Seal. Shane was an Army MP. And Max Lyon is a former Baltimore City Police Detective. They each brought their special skills to the detective agency located in Rockville, Maryland, outside Washington, DC. (Hence the Rockfort name.) Read more

This morning I have an excerpt and giveaway for Running Hot by Helenkay Dimon. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
Ward Bennett jerked back into consciousness. One shift and he nearly wrenched his shoulder out of its socket. He didn’t need to see the plastic zip tie to know that’s what dug into his wrists and bound them behind his back.
Moving his ankle, he didn’t meet any resistance. The person who shackled him made a pretty big miscalculation. As if he needed his hands to escape. Any idiot could break a zip tie. But first he had to figure out how he got in this position and why.
That must have been one hell of a date. It was a fucking shame he couldn’t remember one minute of it. Read more

I was in the mood for a historical romance, so I fired up my Kindle and started reading Twice Tempted. I was hooked from the first page. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but a sweet romance, sprinkled with spicy interludes and a light spy thriller wasn’t it. I enjoyed as the mystery slowly revealed itself, as well as the secondary characters helping Alex and Fiona solve it. They actually made the read for me, because Chuffy and Mairead were so unique and their eccentricities were delightfully surprising. Read more
