NEW RELEASE! Breaking Point: A SEAL Team Heartbreakers Novella & More News

First of all I want to thank everyone who signed up for my newsletter during the Mega author giveaway we ran last month. I only send out my newsletter when I have important news, three or four times a year,  when I have a new book being released or one going on sale. So you don't have to worry that I'll bombard you with newsletters.

BIG NEWS!!!!
I'm so excited!!! Can you hear the SQEEEE? The 8th installment of my SEAL TEAM Heartbreaker Series, BREAKING POINT will be released March 15th. I'm really pleased with the novella. It's Trish and Langley's story. They've been in every book of the series. Their home is the meeting place for the team during important moments. And Trish is the leader of the ladies. She acts as a mentor to the new military wives and girlfriends, offers them the hand of friendship and also organizes help when there's an emergency. And now it's her turn to have something major happen in her life and her marriage.


The Blurb: 

After fifteen years of marriage, Trish Marks has hit her breaking point. Her social work caseload has doubled, her son is acting out, and her SEAL husband is never home.   Something has to give. When she’s shot and nearly killed by an irate husband during a home check, it does.

Navy SEAL Senior Chief Petty Officer Langley Marks is five years away from retirement and his pension. He knows there’s trouble in his marriage when he returns home from a deployment to a wife who’s distant, overworked, stressed, and unhappy. He’s only seen her like this once before, when she nearly died after giving birth to their last child. When she’s shot, he re-lives that terrible experience, and feels just as helpless.

But he’s not about to fly away and leave her to fight her way back alone this time. He’s willing to sacrifice it all to prove to her she’s the most important thing in his life. He just has to find a way to make her believe it. 


HERE'S A SHORT EXCERPT:
Tad ran around the side of the house, soaking wet, his pale blond hair sticking up on top of his head like spikes. Trish laughed and tugged him between her legs. She stripped him, bundled his sopping clothing onto the table next to her, and grabbed a beach towel from the railing of the deck to dry him off.
“Go into your room and put on dry underwear and your Spiderman sweatpants. Daddy’s in there, so he can help you if you need it. You can take a bath in a little while.”
He used his favorite phrase, “I can do it myself,” before he took off running toward the back door. His narrow, bare behind, a hand’s-width across, glowed white compared to the light tan darkening his back and lower legs. He was going to be lean and tall like his father. She could already see the similarities in his bone structure.
She hung his discarded clothes across the deck railing to dry.
Langley slipped out the door ten minutes later. “He’s sitting in front of the television watching a Spiderman cartoon in his Spidey pants, and I suspect he’ll probably crash soon. I took them to a taco place. You know the one that has the bite-sized tacos? Anna loved them.
“In fact, I brought you some. No sauce, so it won’t bother the baby.” He went back out to the car, brought in a bag, and set it on the table next to her.
He paused a moment. “We got you something at the beach today.”
“What is it?”
He drew a small bouquet of cornhusk roses from behind his back, each flower tipped along its edges very lightly with color. “A girl was making these on the beach. Tad said the blue one was from him and Anna picked the peach one. I chose a yellow one for Jessica, and a red one from me.”
Tears pricked Trish’s eyes as she took them. “They’re beautiful. Thank you, Langley.”
“You’re welcome, sweetheart.” He leaned down and brushed her lips with his own.
She looped an arm around his neck and rested her head on his shoulder. He knelt to nestle between her legs and hold her.
“What is it?”
“I can’t seem to get my feet under me this time, Langley.”
“You had a bad time of it, honey. The doc said you’d have to take things slow for a while.”
She nodded against his shoulder and breathed in the briny scent of the sea, laundry soap, and Langley, while she fought against the pain. She knew her husband. Knew his tells. He was taking the kids, spending one-on-one time with them. Going out of his way to be useful. Not that he didn’t do that a lot when he was here, but he’d been particularly attentive the last few days.
“I think we all need a nap,” he suggested.
She nodded again. He stood and backed away, holding his hand out to help her push up from the chair.
“I’ll get the baby. You go ahead and lie down for a while.”
She gathered the roses and held them against her chest. “When do you leave?”
His features blanked in surprise, but his green gaze remained focused on the baby. “Tomorrow.”
The shock of it struck her silent. She wished him already gone. Dealing with his leaving was harder than his absence.
And she couldn’t say a damn thing. It was against the military wife code to say anything, in case something happened to him while he was gone. She didn’t want to live with that guilt. Didn’t want him carrying it into battle.

And in case you missed her first book...  ANGEL IN THE RAIN  



 HERE'S THE BLURB: 
After two years of finishing school, Angel Clayton is determined to redeem herself and become a lady like the mother she never knew. But her wild Texas legacy returns to haunt her when she finds herself the unwilling pawn in a battle of wills between her father's enemy and a sexy pistolero whose reputation makes hers look positively angelic.

Rane Mantorres is a gunfighter with a big reputation and an even bigger score to settle. When he learns his enemy plans to kidnap a wealthy rancher's daughter, he foils the plot and kidnaps her himself. Now he must dare far more than he bargained as he's caught between his thirst for justice and a burning desire for his spirited hostage. Will he risk all--his revenge, even his life--for one night of unforgettable passion with an angel in the rain.

HERE'S AN EXCERPT: 

“Where are you going, Angel?”
He spoke softly, as he might to a child who’d accidentally picked up a loaded gun.
“Home,” she replied with conviction. “I’m going home, Rane.”
His gaze lifted, and the hard as flint expression she had come to recognize settled in his eyes. “I can’t let you do that.”
Angel tried hard to mask the dread surging through her. “You can’t stop me this time.”
Again, his dark eyes flickered over the Colt in her hand. “Do you intend to shoot me? If so, it might be easier if you cock the gun.”
Was he daring her? Or trying to distract her? Perhaps both. Her pounding heart sped even more and echoed in her ears. Did she dare call his bluff?
Deliberately, she lifted her other trembling hand to the wooden butt to steady it. She moved her thumb over the hammer and slowly levered it back. One click. Two. It seemed a long way, but it only brought the gun to half cock.
Ticklish sweat seeped between her breasts. Her hands felt wet, slippery. She exerted more pressure, hoping, praying her thumb didn’t slip off the oily mechanism and let it discharge. 
Another sickening double click and the gun was fully cocked.
Call and raise, Rane.
With grim satisfaction, she watched him, gauging his reaction. The maddening smirk was still on his lips. He took a step forward.
Rather than retreat, she lifted the gun higher and locked her elbows. “Stay back or, I swear, I’ll shoot.”
He shook his head as he dared another step. “No. I don’t think you will. If you wanted me dead, I wouldn’t be standing here now.”
“I started to leave you that first night.”
“Then why didn’t you?”
Because she was afraid he would die. Because she couldn’t bear the thought of him lying there, suffering and alone. Because she simply couldn’t bring herself to leave him... 
“I stayed with you. Took care of you. You owe it to me to let me go.”
He canted his head, as if considering her words. “I thought you understood. There are men out there looking for you. Hard men. Men without conscience, who simply take what they want. You’re asking me to throw you to the wolves.”
“I can make it through.”
“No. When we leave here, we go together.”
He moved toward her again, another slow, measured step. She whimpered, knowing he wouldn’t stop. He would never stop, not until he accomplished what he’d set out to do. Or until he was dead.
Her finger twitched against the trigger. The instinctive reaction frightened her so badly sick panic flooded her stomach. She wanted to drop the gun, but couldn’t force herself to release her death grip on the accursed thing. 
He stood right in front of her, so close the end of the gun barrel prodded the center of his chest. She stared at the blackened hole and the long-dried blood on his soiled shirt. The thought of inflicting yet another, even more serious, wound on his beautiful body nearly buckled her knees.
“Please,” she whispered. Only now she didn’t know which she pleaded for, him to let her go, or for him to stop scaring her to death with his own mad disregard for the weapon in her hands.
The hardness still glittered in his eyes. “It’s your play, Angel. Either give over, or shoot. I’m not stepping aside.”
