Author's Message

I’d like to start this by saying how thrilled I am that RT Book Reviews has chosen Against the Sun, the sixth book in my Raines of Wind Canyon Series, as one of the best romantic suspense novels of 2012! I love you guys, and like most of your readers, watch for the new books you review. 

My next release, Against the Odds, the seventh book in the series, hit bookstores across the country on December 18. I'm excited to tell you that RT has given the novel 4.5 stars and a top pick rating! I couldn’t be more pleased.

All year long I search for new and interesting stories. Each year, they seem more elusive. I first met Sabrina and Alex, the hero and heroine of Against the Odds, in Against the Sun, where they showed up as friends of big Jake Cantrell and Sage Dumont.

Jake was a private investigator at Atlas Security. His best friends were Alex Justice and Ben Slocum, also PIs in his office. Sabrina was Sage’s best friend. 

It wasn’t until I was well into Against the Sun that I realized Alex and Sabrina had to have their own story. I wasn’t sure how I was going to put them together, but little by little, a plot began to unfold in my head.

Even halfway through, I was still finding my way, trying to figure out who the real bad guy was.

I was particularly happy to be able to write both Alex Justice and Ben Slocum’s stories (Ben’s the hero in Against the Edge, which is out the end of April 2013). I fell in love with both of them as I was writing about Jake and Sage.

As Against the Odds begins, Sabrina receives an inheritance from her uncle―an abandoned silver mine in the West Texas desert. Running out of money, Rina is determined to find the mine and make it productive, even if it means putting up with the cocky jet jockey she is determined to dislike but finds ridiculously attractive.

G.Q. handsome and obscenely rich, Alex is a private investigator and an ex-Navy pilot―just the man Sabrina needs to fly her safely into the desert in search of her late uncle’s property.

It’s a sexy tale of survival, murder, betrayal, and intrigue that kept me writing long after I should have been done for the day.

I hope you’ll watch for Alex and Sabrina in Against the Odds, and that you have a wonderful Christmas Holiday. Very best wishes for a great 2013.
