Wait...new When the Mission Ends books??
When I released When Love Intrudes, I said it was the end...maybe.
Because there were two characters in that final book that might still have a story to tell.
One of them was Felicia Parks, the veterinarian who saved Toni's dog after he saved them from the bad guys.
Well, last year, guess who began whispering in my ear...
Yep, Felicia wanted her happy ending.
And that's where When Love Comes Back comes in.
Note, while this is officially part of the series, it does not tie into the original series at all. Felicia's character is the only tie to those original books because she was introduced in that final book.
But her hero is a military guy at the local Air Force base and he may just be on the verge of ending his time in the Air Force. So, the theme of this book fits the original series theme.
But this story does take place in a new location. No more Lubbock, Texas for this one. No, Felicia lives in Terravista, New Mexico. For you Snowcroft fans, you may recognize that as the valley town below Snowcroft. The two series are tied very closely together. I don't know if you remember but Snowcroft Lost was originally spun off of When Love Intrudes, too.
Oh, and yeah, there's now a book #6 planned, too. When Love Surprises is coming. The hero for that book is introduced in When Love Comes Back. I'm hoping to write it after I finish my current work in progress (which I'm hoping will be done this weekend).
There will be more info coming on both of those books (my current WIP, Guarded Desire, and When Love Surprises)...soonish.
Until the new book comes out March 23rd...
I swear the new book is coming, but in the meantime, it occurs to me that some of you may not have read When Love Intrudes so you have no idea who Felicia Parks is.
As a result, I have it on sale for ONE WEEK ONLY!
This book has never been on sale before and it's only 99 pennies!
Here's a quick story synopsis:
Toni Vincent’s last relationship ended with violence. Since then, she’s decided she’s better off without men. But when she finds her young seventeen year old neighbor, Nathan, unconscious and beaten, this is one man she can’t abandon. But helping Nathan means trusting Detective Brian Barnes, another man who hurt her in the past. It’s something she’s just not sure she can do.
Detective Brian Barnes has seen one too many criminals beat the system. He’s burned out and regretting a lot about his life. At the top of that list is how he dealt with Toni Vincent when he was wounded. At the time, he couldn't stand to look at himself, much less have someone he failed care for him. Now she needs his help and he refuses to fail her again. But keeping her alive requires keeping his heart out of it. Something not easy to do when trapped in a romantic mountain retreat, even if it is the safest place for Toni and her unexpected charge.
With danger around every corner, it’s hard to know who can be trusted, especially for three people who have been burned before. But they may just find the best family is the one not tied together by blood.
Who wants to hear more about When Love Comes Back?
Stop Teasing Already...
The official cover reveal is next Friday, but in the meantime, here's a glimpse of the cover and the back cover blurb...
And just to whet your appetite a bit more...
Here is my character inspiration board for Felicia, Gage, Steven, London and Austin.
Hmm, there are a few hints about the story line on here...
I love this book. I'm a HUGE fan of second chance at love stories and I really love the way this one turned out.
So where is the preorder?
Once burned, twice shy.
Amazon screwed up my preorder of Shiver, sending out unedited, definitely NOT FINAL files. It was a mess. While many times the overall story doesn't change at all in edits, there are tiny details that do. It makes me sick to think about you all reading it without those changes.
As a result, I absolutely will not put up a preorder again until I have final, FINAL files. That means that I may not have preorders from here on out. I'm honestly not sure. I'd like to be able to have preorders for you guys so you can order right away when I'm talking about my upcoming books, but...
Dang, I don't think I could handle something like that happening on a full-length book. Edits are wide-sweeping and so important for a book. To know that an unedited book went out. Gah, it makes me hurt.
As the year progresses, I'll see how it goes. I may just push all my release dates back a month from my plans right now so I can make sure the books are completely done WAY ahead of time.
That won't apply to this book, though.
So, no worries the March 23rd release date stands!
And I will keep you informed if preorders go up...PROMISE!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
