Storm Warning — SSI Books 4 — Pinterest Board

MM_SSI4_StormWarning_300x400 Just a few days ago I revealed the new cover for Book 4 in the SSI series, Storm Warning.

Taking a page from my author friend Tina Whittle, I decided to do a Pinterest Board for the book.  On this board I have shown inspirations for the main characters’ looks, maps of places depicted in the story, and other background material that will provide insight to the novel to come.

I plan on adding research info and pictures as I write the book.

So, if you want to follow along as I continue on the journey with Tweeter and DJ, please bookmark the  board:

Cover Reveal– SSI Book 4 — Storm Warning

•December 8, 2014 • 6 Comments

MM_SSI4_StormWarning_300x400

This is the cover for my next Security Specialists International book. Storm Warning is book four and will feature Stuart Alan Walsh, aka Tweeter, and DJ Poe, a former Army helicopter pilot with some additional specialized training.

The book is in progress. I am at about the halfway point and, so far, a lot of exciting and dangerous things have occurred. Bad things from DJ’s past.  Mercs after Keely and Riley Walsh on the day DJ arrives to start her job for SSI. And really bad weather, avalanches, and snipers on Sanctuary land. And then Tweeter and DJ get the call to go undercover on a contract job for the CIA. What is supposed to be a simple information-gathering mission soon turns deadly. Both DJ and Tweeter (whom she calls “Ace” since he is a grown man for chrissakes) will have to use all their skills and training to survive in order to attain their happy ending.

For those of you who haven’t read any of my SSI books, iBooks now has Eye of the Storm for FREE in their Discover a New Author feature.  But hurry, the price goes back to retail after December 15th.

My hot hunk for the holidays is Chris Hemsworth, People Magazine‘s current Sexiest Man Alive. See the People TV video of Chris to see why this Aussie is so HOT.

So, when reading all the SSI books in which Tweeter is featured, just image the shaggy-haired Chris wearing jeans and a tight T-shirt and you’ll have the perfect mental picture of this alpha-geek hero.

KaLyn Cooper’s Christmas in Cancun

•December 2, 2014 • 7 Comments

christmasincancunI’d like to welcome Guest Author KaLyn Cooper to my blog. She has a new release just in time for Christmas:

*****

 

Christmas in Cancun released on Monday so it’s a busy time for me as an author…and then there’s the whole Christmas Holiday.

Parties, shopping for gifts, a vacation with the whole family (not Cancun this year but we are headed to the Caribbean), shopping on warm islands, cooking, shopping for more food, decorating (and I do it BIG), shopping for more decorations, and then celebrating Christmas with my family.

Then there’s more parties and cooking and…and…

Somewhere in there I have to find time to finish my novella, Conquered in Cancun.

So much to do, and the time flies!

I don’t know about you, but for me, the more I have to do, the better I feel and the more “stuff” gets done. I can be the world’s best procrastinator, especially if I only have one or two things to do and there’s no time constraints. But if I have a whole bunch of things and they all have deadlines, I can rock a list.

Yes, I’m a list maker. There’s nothing I like more gratifying than taking that pen and drawing a line through the completed item, or scribbling through it to decimate that task if it was a tough one, or one I just kept putting off until it was essential.

Today, I have filled a legal pad with all the “stuff” I have to do.

Top of the list is to keep up with all the promotions I have going for Christmas in Cancun, and there are a LOT!

Through Dec. 6 – I am giving away a Diamond Ring to a lucky commenter over on my blog, Rants and Raves of KaLyn Cooper https://kalyncooper.wordpress.com/

Also through Dec. 6 – I am also one of ten authors in the Hottie Hunt blog hop. You can read my interview of Karl, the hero of Tara Quan’s Dec. 22 release, A Christmas Together. Visit all ten blogs, be sure to comment, then follow the instructions to enter to win eBooks and a $10 gift certificate.

Through Dec. 31 – The $100 Hottie Holiday Bonanza runs the entire month. Sixteen authors have chipped in to create a pile of prizes including a $100 gift card. All you need to do is follow the link and you are automatically entered. Comment and you get extra entries.

Dec. 6-10 – Hot for the Holidays. The lovely ladies at Love, Lust and Laptops will each be giving away prizes on their individual blogs and jointly we have even more, so there will be LOTS of winners!

I’m also blogging on several sites. If you comment on them, you are entered to win a pair of Diamond Earrings to be given away Dec. 31st. Follow me on Facebook and Twitter for where I’ll be next.

Whew! Lots to do, but I love it.

Now, tell me your holiday plans. Parties? You hosting or attending? Where do you plan to spend Christmas? Did you buy anything really unusual as a gift? (I’m always hunting gift ideas.) Comment here and you’re entered to win those diamond earrings!

Christmas in Cancun Blurb

Busy building a new career with his catamaran company, former SEAL Jack Girard had all but forgotten about his grandfather’s quest to find the golden Mayan goddess statues until his brother’s beautiful widow, Jillian, and adorable daughter, Addison, arrive in Cancun with the research materials. His need to complete the family mission is almost as strong as his desire for Jillian.

Between raising her daughter alone and finishing her doctorate in Mayan anthropology, Jillian doesn’t have time for a man in her life. Although, after mourning her husband’s murder for two years, she’s ready for a man her bed.

 

An underwater Virgin Mary statue and centuries-old manuscripts lead the two of them through the Mayan Riviera and directly into danger.

 

During steamy Caribbean nights together, will they develop the ability to move on and discover the real treasure isn’t gold?

 

Excerpt for Christmas in Cancun

Jillian had been ready to scream for the police when the man grabbed her baby. She’d read about airport kidnappings in foreign countries and how, if the parents didn’t pay up immediately, they’d sell the child. She didn’t have much money and no idea how to get the massive amounts she was sure a kidnapper would require. She couldn’t let him take her baby. No, she wouldn’t let him take Addi.

The dark evil thoughts that raced through her fatigued mind delayed understanding the fact that he’d called her baby girl by name, her nickname. Then he’d said he was Jack Girard.

Jack? No. This couldn’t be Jimmy’s brother Jack. He was a Navy SEAL. Every picture she’d seen of him, and there were several, he’d been in one uniform or another. Or he’d been in nothing but low-slung swim trunks and behind the wheel of a boat as a teenager. He’d been clean-cut with short hair, was close shaven and extremely good looking.

The man who held her daughter was a different man altogether.

Jack Girard wasn’t this long-haired, shaggy, sun-bleached-blond Adonis with bulging tanned muscles under a blue polo shirt with a sailboat logo emblazoned over an impressive chest. The man before her looked deadly on every level. His light blue eyes were hard as arctic ice with hints of green. Then she watched his whole face transform as he smiled at Addi and poked a finger into her baby’s belly. The green had overtaken the blue, and he looked like a loving father playing with his child. Her child.

Jillian couldn’t breathe.

“You ready to meet your hellion cousins, little princess?” His voice was playful, yet its low tones reverberated through Jillian, shaking parts of her soul that had been dormant for more than two years. Since her husband’s murder. Addi squirmed at his touch and giggled.

“Uh…I’ll take her,” Jillian managed to push out through her tightened throat as she grabbed for her child. When he turned his broad smile toward her, her world focused on his white teeth, all of them perfectly straight except for one eyetooth, which turned slightly.

It was Jimmy’s smile. Except Jimmy was dead.

Her knees went weak. Her vision blurred. No matter how hard she tried, her lungs refused to work. Indistinct sounds echoed in the tall room and overwhelmed every one of her senses. The world went white.

“Whoa.” Jack’s voice shot through the encroaching fog in her brain, and a strong arm snapped around her back. “Breathe, Jillian. You’re safe.”

Eye of the Storm, Security Specialists International Book 1, for FREE at iBooks

•December 1, 2014 • Leave a Comment

eyecover_240_x_349 I am so excited to announce that the first book in the Security Specialists International series, Eye of the Storm, had been chosen as part of iBooks Discover a New Author for Free feature.

From December 1 thru 15, you can go to iTunes Store and download Eye of the Storm for zero dollars.

Here is the LINK to Eye of the Storm on iBooks (from there you can go to the store to purchase).

Here is the LINK to all my books at iBooks.

Blurb:

Keely Walsh has three doctorates, five older brothers and has never met a situation she couldn’t handle. While consulting with the NSA, she discovers sensitive government information indicating her brother, a private security operative, is in danger. Keely travels to the dangerous Triple Frontier in South America to warn him and his colleagues and finds the last thing she expects–a man who sends icy shivers down her spine even as he lights every one of her fires.

Ren Maddox, co-owner of Security Specialists International, a security firm that works for large corporations and governments, is on an intelligence-gathering mission for the US government when a petite strawberry blonde armed with a Bren Ten and an attitude ten feet tall pops out of the Argentine jungle with a warning of imminent danger. The fact she is one hundred percent correct shocks him to his socks. The fact she is Tweeter Walsh’s baby sister and can fight like the fiercest Marine is beside the point. No one who looks like Keely should ever be in danger. And once he gets her out of the current situation, he’ll make it his life’s work to protect the feisty, sexy, little woman from any and all danger.

One alpha male. One determined and independent female. One hot, tumultuous relationship.

Excerpt:

“Pepsi, sis?” Tweeter called out from the bar.

“Yes, please.” She opened the bag and found the container with the burger. Opening it, she took a bite and started to chew. “Yuummm.”

Ren laughed at her. He sat next to her, his thigh touching hers. “I’m hungry, too. Can I have a bite?”

Was he teasing her? If he was, it was irresistible. She held her burger up for him. He leaned in closely and his mouth descended, first taking a nip of the tip of a one of her fingers then a bite of the burger from the spot she’d torn into.

“Good—to both bites,” he murmured, licking his lips. His smiling gaze captured hers and held her prisoner.

Tweeter put the Pepsi on the table, breaking the intense connection. “Who wants to order from room service?”

Vanko said, “No need. Teresa is bringing up several of the burgers and some other dishes she thought we big strong men would like.”

“She’s nice—don’t take advantage of her.” Keely eyed Vanko and Tweeter—and then Ren. She wanted to make it clear the Argentinean girl was off-limits. Teresa was too innocent for the likes of these warriors. Vanko was a lady killer. Her brother, all her brothers, had a similar reputation. As for Ren, his files at the FBI and CIA and all his military records classified him as practically a monk. He was acting against type in his recent assiduous care of her, and she found it hard to believe that she was woman enough to change his lifelong relationship patterns.

But as with any statistical pattern, there were always outliers. Outliers were unpredictable and never followed the rules.

“She is a nice girl,” Vanko said. “But she is just that—a girl. I am like a big brother.”

“Uh-huh, pull the other one,” she said around a bit of beef, “she thinks you’re a hunk.”

Vanko laughed. “I am flattered. What do you think, Keelulya?”

“She doesn’t think of you at all.” Ren grabbed her hand and brought her burger back to his mouth, taking another bite.

“Stop eating my food.” She snatched her hand back. “Or … or … I’ll eat some of yours.”

“You can eat anything of mine you’d like.” He winked at her.

She choked, coughed, then blushed, quickly taking a sip of Pepsi. She’d have to reread his files, maybe she’d missed something about him being a rogue—either that or he was the statistic that disproved the numbers.

Tweeter slapped Ren on the back of the head, hard enough for Ren’s head to jerk forward. “Stop talking dirty to my sister.”

“She knows what I meant.” Ren looked at her and smiled. “Isn’t that right, Keely?”

Oh yeah, he was definitely flirting. Her gaze inadvertently drifted to the front of his lightweight trousers. His package made Trujo’s goon’s Baja-sized bulge look dinky. She licked suddenly dry lips and reached again for her soft drink.

“Imp, I’m telling Dad and all the brothers. Stop looking at Ren as if he were Christmas, Easter and your frigging birthday all rolled into one.”

She looked at her brother and stuck her tongue out.
