Midnight by Day – Released!

Hey, gang, it’s official! Midnight by Day has been released as promised! Today is the day! Kavik Raines finally joins his brothers with a story of his own. He’s strong, intelligent, and loyal to a fault. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he’s well versed in weapons use, and can survive deprivation almost anywhere.

Aubree Scott, an avowed city girl, finds herself living off the grid in Alaska. Forced into hiding, she finds her new digs a little too rustic for her tastes. She loves being a fashion designer in Paris, with its bright lights, runways, fine food, and through-the- roof, old world ambiance.

Then, city girl meets off the grid. It’s a clash of styles and personalities. Bodyguard vs. guarded body. Wild vs. civilized. Mountains vs. the Eiffel Tower. Worn, ancient trails vs. the Champs-Élysées. He won’t leave. She won’t stay.

The adventure is on!

Midnight By Day ~ February 28 Release!

Fashion designer Aubree Scott is living her brass ring dream life. Until she awakens from a coma, badly broken, and unable to remember what happened. Placed in protective custody, she’s given a new identity and whisked away to a remote island in Alaska.

To keep his secrets, former FBI agent Kavik Raines has shunned family and friends on a secluded island. Intruders aren’t welcome—including those from his past. He balks at signing on as her bodyguard, and she makes it clear she doesn’t want one.

Forced into an alliance, they’re in a race against time. International criminals are in pursuit, convinced she’s alive and has what they want. Aubree must put a face to the nightmares before it’s too late, and Kav must protect her at all costs, even if he must give up his own secrets. Will she remember the past and discover what’s so important it’s worth killing for? And will they learn the truth before they run out of time?

I’m pleased to announce that Midnight By Day will be released on February 28. It’s been a long journey, and I appreciate your patience. If you loved Kody and Tec’s stories, you’ll enjoy meeting ex-FBI agent Kavik Raines and watch him fall for fashion designer Aubree Scott. Get ready for an Alaskan adventure!

Has a New Norse Site Been Discovered?

I love archaeology and the possibility of unraveling the secrets of the past! When I wrote His Norse Star, it was with a deep seated belief that new Norse sites would one day be found. And one may have been!

Though hesitant to declare it a Norse site, archaeologist Sarah Parcak does admit the site shows promise. Her work with satellite imagery led to the find and the preliminary work that followed. Read about her team’s exciting discovery here.

EXCERPT:

“A beautiful woman should always have men falling at her feet.”

“I think men prefer having beautiful women falling at their feet.”

“So cynical. What can we do to change that?” He slowly lifted the edge of her glove to press his lips to her wrist. Watching her through narrowed eyes, he drew off the glove, kissing his way from wrist to fingertip, his teeth catching the small pads at the base of her fingers. “A woman should hear how lovely she is.”

Her throat closed as the heat of his breath teased the sensitive nerves in her skin. She shivered despite the sun’s warmth, his caress sending delicate arcs of pleasure through her body. He traced the center line of her index finger, gently biting the tip. The rush of her exhale was the gasp of wanting more, and he didn’t disappoint.

The second glove met the same fate as the first—slowly, with exquisite care as he made a torturous route, tugging the tip of each finger and exposing her skin by the millimeter. He nibbled the thin sheath of skin between her thumb and index finger before turning her hand to kiss each knuckle, following each finger to the tip.

No one had ever given her hands such attention, such adoration. It was more erotic than if he were undressing her. The thought shot through her, dancing over her skin and filling her with desire. “Does a man need to hear that, too?” she murmured, closing her fingers around his hand.

“Only if it’s true,” he said, leaning toward her.

“You are.”

“Lovely?”

He was one breath from kissing her. “Handsome.”

“I like the sound of that.”

Her heart jumped into her throat. “That you’re handsome?”

“No, that you think I am.”

As his lips touched hers softly, one rushed, barely audible word escaped her. “Oh.” How long had it been since she’d been kissed, since any man had called her lovely? Too long, her mind whispered. She inhaled the scents of aftershave and musk lingering on his skin, her hand creeping around his neck.

“You taste like coffee,” he whispered, sipping her lower lip.

“So do you.”
