Solace Goodeve, one of Mother Nature’s favorite Fae Warriors, is assigned to Earth to help save the planet. Reptile invaders, disguising themselves as humans, are waging a takeover—and Mother is mad enough to eat asteroids. Solace is ready to prove herself as a warrior, but having a human for a partner is not in her battle plan—even if the man is rugged, ripped, and ready for action.
Army Ranger, Tanner Jackson, has seen his share of black op missions. The last one took a toll on both body and soul. Tanner isn’t looking for love, even though his new partner is six-foot-tall and drop dead gorgeous. However, after Solace shows him a new meaning to working undercover, he may have to reconsider that possibility.
As the Reps plan to sabotage NOAA, Tanner and Solace must learn to trust one another. But as they’re trying to save the world, Solace and Tanner might just lose their hearts—and that takes the most courage of all.
Angry voices filtered over to her. She couldn’t understand what they were saying, but it sounded like they were arguing amongst themselves. Snatching the bag from her head, she blinked and took stock of her surroundings. Two Reps looked ready to go for one another’s throats. The third sat in a nearby chair, holding his thigh, groaning in pain. Studying her surroundings in more detail, she discovered they’d brought her to an abandoned warehouse. An image of “Mr. White” flashed through her mind. What was it with these guys and warehouses? At least this one appeared cleaner, and other than a few small odds and ends, nearly empty—except for the huge steel cage they’d locked her in.
Thank you for inviting me to your blog today.
1. How long have you been writing?
Seems like forever, seriously. Can’t remember a time when I didn’t scribble poems or prose on paper.
2. How long have you been a published author?
My first book, The Dragon and The Rose, came out in 2009
3. What titles do you have available?
The Dragon and The Rose, Lady Gallant, Iron Heart, Special Delivery, A Cowboy’s Fate, Victorian
4. What made you choose the subject of this book?
It all started with my fascination over a statue of a faerie dressed in armor carrying a spear as she rides a unicorn, a snow leopard at her feet. Then the fascination morphed into the what if concept of six foot tall gorgeous Fae Warriors assigned to help Mother Nature. The idea simmered a while, hit boiling point, and had to be written down.
5. Do you have any new titles coming soon?
Solace is my new release, a sexy sci/fi/fantasy, and Bliss, the second book in the trilogy, will hopefully be out next year.
6. What is your favorite genre and why?
I like adventurous romance, regardless of time period. Also like suspense and a good mystery.
7. What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?
Being surprised as the story and characters takes you down avenues you didn’t see coming.
8. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?
Because I love the TV show Bones, I’d have to say Kathy Reichs. But J.D. Robb is also a favorite. I’m rereading the entire “In Death” serious. What a monumental achievement. She is the master of amazing one-liners.
Thank you for being my guest today and answering these questions.
