Today is February 23 and NO CHANCE, the first book in my 2010 back-to-back romantic suspense trilogy, is now in stores!
Gabe Maddox, the hero, has been a secondary character in the three previous Last Chance Rescue books. The first time I met him, he intrigued me. I think he only had a couple of lines in RESCUE ME, but something about him told me I'd have to write his story some day. He makes an appearance in RETURN TO ME and in RUN TO ME, has a pretty significant role. That's one of the most enjoyable things about writing a series--giving an intriguing secondary character his or her own book. Each book in the series, except for RESCUE ME, has been a secondary character in a previous book.
NO CHANCE is a reunion romance, which is a favorite theme of mine. Thinking on it yesterday, I realized that all of the books leading up to NO CHANCE could be termed reunion romances. Wow. Looks like I have a theme theme going!
Wanted to share the news with my Southern Magic sisters and brothers. You all have supported me from the moment I walked into my first meeting. Thank you so much for all the love and kindness. Quoting the lovely and talented Kelly St. John, "Southern Magic rocks!"
