GENRE: Contemporary Romance
SERIES: Seal of Brotherhood (Book 1)
Any weird things you do when you’re alone?
I don’t know… what’s considered weird? I talk to the dogs, but that’s normal, right? And I’m sure there’s nothing strange about my obsessive collection of scrapbooking and bullet journaling supplies.
What is your favorite quote and why?
“How people treat you is their karma. How you react is yours.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
Who is your favorite author and why?
Nora Roberts is my absolute favorite author because she crafts the most vivid, visually beautiful stories and such well-drawn, strong characters book after book. She is my inspiration, from her work ethic and dedication to the craft of writing, to her amazing characters and the stories that stay in my mind year after year.
What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?
To connect with the reader in some way. It could be by writing a strong, intense plot that sucks them in or by creating lifelike, compelling characters that they empathize with. Whatever the writer’s strength is, use it to build that connection so the reader becomes a part of the story, so they can’t put the book down until they reach that final page, and even then they are wishing there was more. To me, that’s good writing.
About the Book
“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing— Diego’s honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.
Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.
Read an Excerpt
IT PAYS TO be a winner.
And Diego Torres was a big believer in winning.
But it was the winning that he liked.
The thrill of testing his skills, pushing his limits. Of knowing he was better than his adversary.
Yeah. He liked knowing he was the best.
He didn’t do it for reward.
Especially not when the reward came by way of the pomp and pageantry of a ceremony like today. Standing onstage in front of the various platoons that made up SEAL Team 7, listening to Admiral Cree pontificate was a pain in the ass. What made it worse wasn’t the couple hundred sets of eyes inspecting him or the discomfort of his dress whites, too tight across the shoulders.
It was the damned shoes. Diego’s toes pinched in the mirror-bright black patent leather, begging him to flex. He didn’t, of course. Not while standing at attention. But damn. Give him a pair of combat boots any day.
As the sun baked through his cap and the heat of the morning swirled around, he wondered what yahoo had decided to hold this ceremony outdoors. And why it felt so much hotter standing in the San Diego sun in whites than it did in the Afghan desert in full combat gear. Probably because combat gear fit him better.
Diego had spent a large portion of his life fighting over the wrong things. He’d fought over turf. He’d fought over gang colors. Hell, if the mood struck, he’d have fought over just how blue the sky was. It’d taken a bullet barely missing his heart to clue him in to the fact that maybe the things he was fighting over simply weren’t worth dying for.
