Harlequin, Here I Come!

Book news! Book news!!

I'm just tickled to announce that I've sold my steamy and emotional firefighter story FIGHTING THE FLAME to Harlequin SuperRomance, for publication in August 2014!

Yes, these dudes:

And more importantly, these dudes:

Not familiar with Harlequin's SuperRomance line? It's a romance line that packs a lot of emotion with a lot of sexy and steamy, and if you've read my book TEMPTING THE COWBOY, you know I love to write both! The steam is a little tamer, but the emotional connection between the characters is off the charts. I love that, and so I really feel grateful and honored to be writing for the SuperRomance line.

You can see Harlequin's current SuperRomance books here.

What's FIGHTING THE FLAME about? I'm glad you asked! Here's the unofficial blurb (and I mean, very, very unofficial! LOL)

Here's the Pinterest Board for a little visual candy.  

Lily Ashden was a talented carpenter before a devastating fire ruined her left arm, reducing her from high-profile builder to lackey for her overbearing and emotionless father.The same accident that left her damaged also claimed the life of her sister--a life that wouldn't have been lost if the firemen on scene had just done their jobs. But they hadn't. They'd left her sister to burn to death as Lily watched.

Little does Lily know that the hot bartender from the Throwing Aces bar she has an almost-fling with, is also one of the firemen who failed to save her sister on that fateful day. Garrett Mateo isn't just Lily's self-declared enemy, but the big commercial construction client her father needs her to woo. Garrett is a Lieutenant on the Danbury Fire Department and co-owner of the Throwing Aces bar--a bar he promised his dying uncle he would renovate as financial padding for his uncle's wife and children.

Good thing Garrett and his brothers made a pact long ago--to skip commitment and focus on honoring their father's legacy as a Fire Captain. Wives, children, they were just potential casualties if he were to be killed on the job. When Lily pushes every boundary Garrett has set for himself, he has to decide if risk is worth the reward. Lily must gain Garrett's construction contract to save her father's business, but as her heart gets involved, she must decide: Firefighters already failed her once. Can she trust one to save her again?

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT. What do you think???? I think we should let the party get started up in here. Woot, woot!


  1. Oh talk about conflict and sexual tension, this is going to be good. Can't wait for it to come out. Love the way you write and this looks like it's going to be HOT in more ways than one.
