HOLD ON TIGHT (Book 3), available January 26th, 2010

They were caught in the crossfire between danger and desire…  


Chris Waldron, an elite U.S. Navy SEAL, is used to getting out of tight spots. But all his years of training can’t prepare him for the crisis he now faces. When a mission to rescue a kidnapped ambassador and his wife goes tragically awry, an FBI hostage negotiator is killed and Chris finds himself at the center of the ensuing investigation. Leading the charge is the blistering hot special agent and onetime lover who has re-ignited their mutual attraction.

Jamie Michaels is determined to keep things professional with Chris Waldron this time. But seeing him bruised and battered in that hospital bed has rekindled all those feelings she thought she’d left behind during their brief, passionate encounter in Africa. Now Jamie must keep her craving for danger at bay as she spearheads a search for the truth that just may blow Chris’s career to bits-and put them both in the crosshairs of an unseen enemy.


hard-neon31The jpgs of these books do not do the covers justice – all the writing is raised and the print is neon – HARD TO HOLD is neon orange, TOO HOT TO HOLD is neon-yellow and HOLD ON TIGHT is neon pink and they look so cool all together. Waxcreative played with the jpgs a little so you could get more of a feel of how bright and eye-catching the lettering is.  


What is LIST?  Well, it stands for Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler  (and of course, Sydney Croft is there as well) and it’s the name of the new fan forum that will officially launch today, June 9th.  It’s the brainchild of a wonderful person who approached us and asked where our forum was and would we mind if she started one for us.  Of course, we were honored and so Lo began her work.

June 9th is actually a perfect day to officially launch LIST (well, perfect for me – Larissa is currently driving from Virginia to Wisconsin and will be back online within a week or two) – perfect, because today is the day that my galleys for Hard To Hold (aka Jake’s book) are due.  Galleys are the final step before a book is published.  So that’s pretty much kismet for me, even though Lo, the fabulous creator / admin of LIST, didn’t know anything about that.  But I’m a huge believer in signs, so to me, this works perfectly.

LIST is a forum, so you’ll have to register, but there’s so much to do there – people to meet, greet and chat with about everything from the latest movies to how to create a banner.  There are also forums about the books and a place to ask Larissa and me questions (we to try to pop on as often as we can.)  But really, it’s just a great place for readers to hang out and have fun!

So come on over and check it out, because they’ve done such a fabulous job putting everything together!!!

New site, new covers!

Welcome to the new site!  I just adore it – and everyone at Waxcreative – for doing such an awesome job!  It’s everything I wanted and I love the new look and I’m so excited to finally share it with you all.

I’m also excited to share the covers for Hard To Hold (aka Jake’s book) and Too Hot To Hold (Nick’s Book).  And yes, I know they’re up on the site already but that doesn’t mean I won’t show them off here too.  Chris’s cover is done except for tagline and quotes, and I’ll be able to show Hold on Tight soon.  For now, you’ll have to content yourself with these two.

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….

Together, they’re an explosion waiting to happen

He’s an elite Navy SEAL living a risky double life. She’s the gorgeous reporter hot on his trail.

Nick Devane’s life is one big, classified secret. Until Kaylee Smith busts his covert world wide open, threatening to blow his cover. Digging around where she doesn’t belong could get them both killed…especially when the beautiful journalist uncovers top-secret information that could set off a global disaster if it falls into the wrong hands. Nick can’t let that happen, even if he has to battle deadly mercenaries and an irresistible attraction that is all consuming…

Kaylee didn’t expect her search for her missing ex-husband to lead to this sexy and dangerous SEAL. Now she’s teamed up with Nick on a mission that takes them into deepest Africa–and into the middle of a massive government cover-up. With rogue agents hot on their trail, Kaylee’s going to unearth all Nick’s secrets. Before they both vanish without a trace. Before the passion burning between them sets off an explosion no one may survive…


So, what do you think?
