I cannot believe this day is finally here – HARD TO HOLD is released!!!


Maximum danger.
Maximum desire.
And holding on for dear life…

The Special Ops hero feared nothing
-until he met a woman too hot to hold…

Lt. Jake Hansen has survived some of the riskiest missions known to man. But now the wounded Navy SEAL faces his toughest job yet: Smuggling Dr. Isabelle Markham out of Africa without triggering an international incident. Not easy to do when the gorgeous hostage happens to be a senator’s daughter —and about as easy to resist as an oasis in the desert…

If it weren’t for Jake, Isabelle would still be halfway across the world, where rebel forces left her for dead. The Special Ops warrior may have saved her life, but she doesn’t need him to protect her now. Tell that to the ruggedly handsome hunk in full battle fatigues who’s just been assigned Isabelle’s personal bodyguard. Close quarters aside, Isabelle won’t let Jake anywhere near her heart — until danger throws them together again…and nothing in the jungles of wildest Africa could prepare them for a passion this wild. This crazy. This hot….


I am not here right now –  as you’re reading this, I’m at the doctor with my daughter.  Fitting, since I began this writing journey with my daughter and doctors, so hey.  We’re getting there, but it’s been a long month.

But it’s all good because I’ve got a lot here for you to do AFTER you run out and by Jake’s book.  I’ve added a ton of new info about HARD TO HOLD to the site – there’s a military glossary and a list of the characters you’ll meet in HARD TO HOLD, as well as maps of the places in the book.

Tonight, I’m chatting at Blog Talk radio – here’s the link for you to listen live, 8:30 PM EST.  If you can’t make it, there will be a link to a podcast up later on.  Jake’s being interviewed over at Greta’s blog – I Don’t Want To Wait, I Want the Book Now.  I’m also being interviewed at Loves Romances and More and I”ll put up a link to that when it’s up.

There’s also a new, juicy excerpt of TOO HOT TO HOLD up as well, because now we get to start that countdown in earnest.

Dude, seriously, Jake is freakin’ here.  And I’m just going to come home and hold my kid and stare at the book…and smile.
