Loving him is a dangerous job…

Former DEA agent Josephine de la Peña loved Zaf Ahmadi once-and she’s got the bullet scar to prove it.  No wonder she holds a grudge against her hacker ex.  But now, just as Joey’s preparing for a new job with the  Las Vegas Slayers, Zaf reappears, insisting she’s in danger.  The sexual pull between them is still as intense, and liable to hurt more than any gunshot.

Even if Joey could forgive him for the botched drug bust that got her injured, Zaf can’t forgive himself.  Obsessively hunting for the criminals who killed his cousin warped his judgement.  To protect Joey, he suggests he pose as her boyfriend.  As long as he can keep emotional distance, he can keep her safe.  Until the case presents him with a choice:  pursue the vengeance he craves-or tru to turn one smoldering night into so much more…

Dear Reader,

So we’ve reached the end.  I say goodbye to a cast of complicated and fascinating strangers who allowed me to create their glamorous, gritty world with all the sincerity and energy my heart can hold.

One More Night with You is the final book in the Blue Dynasty series.  Josephine de la Peña has been waiting perched on the sidelines as everyone around her found their happily-ever-afters.  It was my duty to give her something she doesn’t quite believe in:  a happy ending of her own.  She and her hero, Zaf Ahmadi, break the mould of my books on a multitude of levels.  They demanded nothing less than an explosively powerful and sexy conclusion.  This story is my gift to them, and it’s a bittersweet farewell to characters who’ve become as real to me as friends.

Thank you, dear readers, for taking this journey with me.

XOXO

No risk, no reward in the game of love

Training the Las Vegas Slayers by day, sampling Sin City’s delights by night, Nate Franco’s life is one to envy.  But a hot nightclub encounter could change all that.

Because Charlotte Blue is more than a beautiful stranger.  She’s the daughter of his team’s new owners-and his rival for the top training job.  To keep his career and his legacy intact, Nate’s prepared to play a little dirty.

Charlotte works hard to make her mark in a male-dominated sport.  On the field, she and Nate are the picture of professionalism.  In the bedroom, she’s risking everything for their breathtaking forbidden affair.  But is Nate just using her so his family can reclaim the team-or will they be able to look beyond the passionate games to embrace real love?

Dear Reader,

Growing up a single-minded book lover, I resisted the appeal of American football.  I really did put up a good fight.  But since I come from a home filled with athletics and sports fanatics, one can guess how long that defiance lasted…

A battle on the gridiron has the power to turn strangers in the stands into friends or rivals.  Men become warriors.  Fans become an incredible force that urges them toward greatness.

But there’s more to football than games-especially for the Las Vegas Slayers.  The ambitious, sexy and vivacious Blue daughters are putting their stamp on the very male world of football.  In Night Games, competitive Charlotte Blue and jaded Nate Franco take risks, break rules, give in to passion and set off a chain of events that shake up Sin City.

I’m excited to introduce you to The Blue Dynasty, and I hope you’ll enjoy Charlotte and Nate’s story.

XOXO

The night that changed everything…

After being dumped by her fiancé and losing her shot at TV stardom, Bindi Paxton just wants to get out of town.  But there’s no escaping the past-not even on the beautiful Seychelles Islands.  And when her attraction to former Las Vegas Slayers heir Santino Franco culminates in a night of sizzling passion, she has to fight her feelings for a man who could hurt her deeper than any other has before.

Santino came to the islands to find the man responsible for the injury that ended his pro-football career.  Ending up in bed with Bindi is a mistake they both regret.  Except he now needs her help to find his fugitive father.  And-heaven help him-he’s starting to fall for the stunning Sin City reporter.  He can’t change their history…but he’d give anything for one more night, and maybe forever, in her arms.

Dear Reader,

Ever want to get away?  Perhaps to distance yourself from a less-than-ideal situation?  Or to just see something new?  Many attribute my insatiable wanderlust to personality traits and astrological characteristics.  When travel isn’t an option, writing is.  New characters often take me away and invite me into their worlds.  And sometimes we become so tight so quickly that I bring them back with me.

Which is why Mine Tonight is Bindi Paxton’s story.  If you read Night Games, then you know Bindi well.  Or you think you do.  She’s waited impatiently for me to reveal who she truly is.  Despite her gritty past and damaging mistakes, she’s a beautiful person deserving of redemption-much like Santino Franco.  Bindi and Santino can’t seem to escape themselves, each other or what awaits them within the Blue Dynasty.

May this book take you away.

Love evens the score

As general manager of the Las Vegas Slayers, Danica Blue goes toe-to-toe with players whose size is matched only by their egos.  Quarterback Dex Harper is the biggest and toughest of them all, with a hell-raiser reputation that he insists he doesn’t deserve.  And Danica, the good daughter who’s always played by the rules, is suddenly tempted to break every last one.

Football is the only thing Dex has ever been able to count on.  To save his career he needs Danica’s PR savvy, and he’s happy to help her discover her inner bad girl in return.  But glimpsing the real woman behind that sexy, flawless façade is making him realize how much is at stake.  Because getting back on the team could mean losing Danica, unless he’s willing to risk it all-and play for keeps…

Dear Reader,

I’ve never been known as a particularly bad seed.  Or an especially good one.  Just an average gal, with plenty of virtues and some vices thrown in to keep things interesting.  That being said, I’ve always been fascinated with good seeds-people who seem immune to mistakes, who appear to make the best decision and effortlessly live well.

Wiriting Midnight Play put me inside the head of a woman who fits this description.  If you’ve read Night Games, you know that, unlike her “rule-breaking” sisters, Danica Blue is considered a “rule-maker”.  Yet Danica’s deeply passionate relationship with badass quarterback Dex Harper reveals that she’s more than who she is perceived to be.  Meeting Danica’s bad-girl side gave me the chance to get acquainted with Dex’ good side.  And one hell of an adventure it was!

Welcome back to The Blue Dynasty.

A red-hot holiday

Pro football publicist Martha Blue has something to prove.  To protect the image of the Las Vegas Slayer-and stay employed-she has to shed her party-girl reputation.  Fast!  So no more mistakes.  No further scandals.  And absolutely no falling for the one man who can give her everything she wants…and nothing of what she needs.

Danger and desire never mixed well for undefeated prizefighter Joaquin Ryder.  A friend of the Blue family, he’s a man who knows his boundaries…boundaries he has secretly crossed only once before.  Now that he’s back in Sin City to train for the biggest fight of his career, he can’t afford to let a sexy distraction like Martha put him against the ropes.  Revisiting their sizzling past is something he isn’t willing to risk-until a steamy Yuletide encounter, where for just one night, they’ll surrender completely…

Dear Reader,

Sleigh bells.  Crisp, pine-scented breezes.  Mistletoe.  These are all tiny somethings I adore at Christmastime.  Beyond that is what I treasure most:  hope.  During my journey with Just for Christmas Night, I lost someone who was precious to me-and I spent countless hours grieving.  In myriad ways, I still am.  But I believe in little miracles, in hidden blessings and holiday magic.  I believe that on the other side of the unknown and the unexpected, of changes and surprises, are hope and opportunity.

The wildest of the Blue daughters, freewheeling flirt Martha, has plans for herself.  But as her life jumps the rails, she gets a spectacular holiday surprise of her own:  brooding boxing champ Joaquin Ryder.  Watching Martha and Joaquin figure each other out showed me just how steam the holidays can be!

Here’s to hope, opportunity and little miracles.

XOXO
