Well, he’s been in some houses for a while – and I’ve heard from one person that he’s been vacationing in Disney! But as of today, you should be able to buy your very own copy of TOO HOT TO HOLD everywhere.
TOO HOT TO HOLD, for those readers new to my site, is book 2 in my Navy SEAL trilogy.
Book 1, HARD TO HOLD, is, of course, still available – you can check out the wonderful reviewStacy (aka Trelaina) wrote up. I particularly like this quote: “They [the heroes] are flawed, and dangerous, a bit crazy even.”
And book 3, HOLD ON TIGHT, releases in a few weeks on January 26th!!!
I’ve added lots of little tidbits about Nick’s story on my site, so please go look around. You’ll also find a nice long excerpt of HOLD ON TIGHTthat went up today as well!
EXTREME HEAT. EXTREME HUNGER.
A JUNGLE EDEN ABLAZE WITH TEMPTATION.
Shockwaves shoot through the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives (ACRO) when horrific video surfaces from the Brazilian rain forest. A team of Navy SEALs has been nearly wiped out by something sinister and superhuman. Now ACRO agents Sela Kahne and Marlena West head to the world’s most unforgiving jungle in pursuit of a mythical monstrosity with a taste for human blood. And the only path that will take them to the creature runs through two men, each hiding his own dark secret.
Sela is an expert on cryptozoology with a sideline skill that could prove invaluable: when she makes love to a man, she engulfs his innermost thoughts. Teamed with Marlena, Sela makes contact with the lone SEAL survivor, Chance McCormack. Meanwhile Logan Mills, the man who rescued Chance, leads his private company on a hunt that has nothing to do with saving lives. Soon, Sela will put her supernatural charms to work on Logan, determined to extract information about the creature they are seeking. But in this sweat-drenched realm of danger and deception, Logan is more than just a passive target. He has the power to lead a highly-trained seducer into a jungle without any rules, without any limits—and no end to the heat.
Also, I’ve just been told that the release date has shifted a week, so instead of being available December 29th, it’ll be pubbed on January 5, 2010. So really, much easier than trying to ship out over New Years. 🙂 If you pre-ordered it from Amazon, you’ll have to go in and approve the order again since the date did change.
So far, the official release date for HOLD ON TIGHT (aka Chris’s book) has remained January 26, 2010, but that could shift. If it doesn’t, well, then you get books 2 and 3 very close together, which is nice.
For now, I’m busy working on book 5 – Zane’s book which still has no title, but hey, the proposal was accepted by my editor, so that’s cool. And I’m editing Sydney’s next, Tempting The Fire, which has an August 2010 release date last time I looked. And then Larissa and I dive right into writing Stryker’s book (book 6)…so this fall will be busy.
Again, mid-September? Really?
Oh, and this post from author Saundra Mitchell cracked me up. This paragraph, especially, on what happens when your first book is finally published:
…your grandmother is in tears because she didn’t see it at Wal-Mart. Not that she was going to buy it- everybody even remotely, genetically connected to you expects you to give them a copy- you’d think they’d take pity on you because of your non-Twilight advance and buy one. Or two. Come on, people, some pity- I didn’t send my book to Oprah, I’m doomed!
See, and most of my family doesn’t plan on buying it, but they don’t want copies from me either…(don’t worry – for some reason this just makes me laugh…) But, of course, that means you’ll all have to make up for the non-familial buying and grab yourselves some extra copies…what?
At the beginning of the month, you got an exclusive sneak peek from Hard to Holdhere.
Now, let me point you in the direction of a brand new sneak peek for Book 2 in the SEAL trilogy, Too Hot to Hold. You’ll meet Kaylee, the heroine, thinking on her first meeting with Nick, our SEAL hero.
To recap, Hard to Hold releases November 24th, 2009, Too Hot to Hold releases December 29th, 2009 and Hold on Tight releases January 26th, 2010 -and I do believe you’ll get a sneak peek from Chris’s book soon!
Check back for more sneak peeks from the trilogy – I think we’re running them about every three weeks until the first release from this point forward, which is exciting.
I’m currently listening to the Black Hawk Down soundtrack (excellent music for the proposal I’m working on) while taking a short break from Sydney revisions and Cam revisions (the next book after Hold on Tight.) They’re both due August 1st. And I will need A LOT of coffee over the coming days. And Diet Coke. And cookies…and…well, you get the idea.
