In 2011, she was honored by the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists with their Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for her work.

This time several members find themselves in peril as hostages of ruthless killers bent on revenge. I'm writing it in a slightly different style, with many different points of view in different locations, all in "real" time, kind of minute by minute. It's proving to be a lot of fun. It's definitely not your typical heartwarming Christmas story. I suspect some warming of hearts by the end, yes, but this is the I-Team, so there will be flying bullets and a body count, too.

I've got a spinoff series planned, one that focuses on Javier and Derek's black ops company, Cobra. The hot men who helped rescue the hostages in DEAD BY MIDNIGHT are actually already part of a series — author Kaylea Cross's Hostage Rescue Team series. They made a cameo appearance in my story. MARKED, the first book in that series, is free in ebook right now on Amazon and elsewhere if you want to check it out.

I'm also starting a new contemporary adventure series focusing on members of an alpine rescue team. Gabe Rossiter will be making some appearances, and perhaps other I-Team characters, as well. The team involves everyone from rescue dog trainers to helicopter pilots to badass climbers/skiers to paramedics. It should be a lot of fun. (less)

First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who grabbed a copy of Slow Burn . You pushed it into the top 100 for sports romance and contemporary romance on Amazon. Thanks, too, for all the terrific reviews. Word of mouth is everything to an author.

The book is available in paperback through Amazon now, too.

In the meantime, I thought I’d catch you all up on what’s been going on at Casa Clare.

Hi, Juhi! So glad you've enjoyed the I-Team series. That makes my day! If I were you, I'd probably start with SURRENDER and read the MacKinnon's Rangers series first. If you enjoy that, then you'll have the Kenleigh-Blakewell series to read. RIDE THE FIRE, the third book in that series, was reissued earlier this month. It can be read as a stand-alone.

If I knew more about your tastes, I might be able to be more certain, but that's my best guess.

And thanks for giving my books a try! I really appreciate it.

As for excerpts, I imagine I won't be posting any till spring because I'll need to get much of the book written first. But when I do post them, you'll see them on my blog, which gets reposted here on Goodreads. I always share excerpts. :-)

Eima You're welcome!
A favorite? Oh my, I like all books equally it's hard to choose... If I were to pick, I liked Naked Edge the most. I really love how Gabe and Kat's relationship developed despite the things that are holding them back.
However if I were to pick an I-Team hero, it would most definitely be Julian.

Is that so? I can't wait! I wonder what the next novel is about. Will you be posting teaser excerpts soon?
