#ThrowbackThursday A Trip to Mexico

I’ve been very lucky that my day job has let me visit Mexico on a number of occasions. I’ve been to Mexico City, Guadalajara and Tequila. Fascinating places, great food and good-hearted people.

I’ve been fascinated by the Aztecs and the Maya since I read The Conquest of Mexico and Peru as a kid. It’s no wonder that I decided to set two of my books in Mexico: Aztec Gold and The Fifth Kingdom. The Fifth Kingdom in particular is one of my favorite books and it features the Sun Stone, a symbol of Mexico, in the story. That’s the Sun Stone in the bottom left of this photo! It was truly a pleasure to share with you how the Aztecs lived and their culture, as well as their gods and goddesses.

P.S. – My fascination with the Maya was in large part responsible for inspiring the Sin Hunters and the special powers that you first see in THE LOST.

He was the kind of man that every woman would want . . .

Sexy and handsome Rafael Castillo was a star athlete and honor student. Everyone knew Rafe was going places and would make his hometown proud. Elena Martinez dreams of the day that the friendship she shares with Rafe will turn into something more. When that moment comes she doesn’t hesitate to grab it, and Rafe, with both hands.

She was the woman he’d dreamed of and whose life he’d ruined . . .

Rafe has been in love with Elena since the fifth grade when she stood up for him and stopped bullies from teasing him for being different. In the years since then, Rafe has watched Elena grow into a smart, beautiful, and desirable woman. He had hoped Elena would be a part of his future and was determined to show her how special she is to him.

Can they forget the past in order to build their future?

A fateful night of passion will change the future both Elena and Rafe had envisioned. Forced into marriage by an unexpected pregnancy, they find themselves separated by the demands of impending parenthood. Rafe enlists in the Navy Seals to support his new wife and the child who is on the way, but Fate is determined to throw them another curve. After Elena’s miscarriage and years of separation during Rafe’s tours of duty, have they grown too far apart or is love still possible between them?

#TeaserTuesday Fight the Shadows #RomanticSuspense

FIGHT THE SHADOWS Romantic suspenseFIGHT THE SHADOWS is part of the Shadow Ops Kindle World by CJ Lyons. CJ has created an amazing concept around the Special Threats Response Team, a group of heroes who go in when no other agency can or will go in. The head of this unique team is Rose Prospero and she is an absolutely fascinating woman. Her second-in-command is Billy Price and he couldn’t be more different from Rose. The one thing they have in common: Their desire to protect their country from harm.

This teaser is from the start of FIGHT THE SHADOWS and you meet Rose and Billy. I loved exploring what’s happening with these characters, but also introducing my own two characters, National Guardsman Patricia Morales and former Marine Rick Sanchez, as new members of the STR team.

#TeaserTuesday FIGHT THE SHADOWS

fight the shadowsI’m really excited to be part of the launch of CJ Lyon’s Shadow Ops Kindle World and I had a fun time writing FIGHT THE SHADOWS. It was action-packed and sexy and I got to show off some of the parts of New York that I visit every day. Today’s Teaser Tuesday is an excerpt from FIGHT THE SHADOWS.

Blurb

He had never given up hope of finding his wife’s killers . . .

Marine Staff Sergeant Rick Sanchez had survived two tours of duty and returned home to join the New York City Police Department. He’d found something besides his calling at the Police Academy: he found the love of his life. When his wife is killed three years later by gang thugs, Rick feels betrayed by the police department that calls it a drug deal gone bad and claims his wife was dirty. He quits the force and vows to get to the truth, but he doesn’t foresee the danger coming at him from both the street gang and a pint-sized warrior who threatens to steal his heart again.

She had clawed her way out of the barrio and hated being drawn back into that life . . .

Patricia Morales had worked hard to build a better life for herself outside the crime-ridden section of New York City where her family had settled after leaving Honduras. It wasn’t easy, especially after her father was killed in a car accident. But she’d joined the National Guard and found a way to a better life for her family. Deployed as part of Joint Task Force Empire Shield, she hopes to one day help her half-brother out of the gang life. When her half- criminal activities may involve a possible terrorist threat, Patricia must face her past and deal with her attraction to a man determined to send her half-brother to jail for a murder he didn’t commit.

#WriteWed FIGHT THE SHADOWS & Tortured Heroes

FIGHT THE SHADOWS Romantic SuspenseWho doesn’t love a good tortured hero? One whose dark side has him walking along a very fine edge that threatens to make him fall into the shadows? That’s how I pictured Rick Sanchez from FIGHT THE SHADOWS.

A former Marine, Rick has returned from war and has decided to continue to serve and protect as a New York City policeman. His time in the Police Academy also brings him the love of his life.

Unfortunately, his marriage is short-lived as his wife is gunned down by gang members a few years later. Worse, the NYPD claims his wife was dirty and that her death was due to her being involved with the gang members.

Rick knows better and leaves the force, vowing to find his wife’s killers and clear her name.

Enter the heroine, National Guardsman Patricia Morales, who also happens to be the half-sister of one of the men that Rick believes is responsible for his wife’s execution. Rick doesn’t want to be attracted to her because of that and because he doesn’t want a relationship with another woman who has to place her life on the line every day in order to protect the people of New York City.

But Patricia is strong, intelligent and beautiful and Rick finds himself admiring the gutsy woman and quickly falling in love with her as they work together to stop a terrorist attack in New York City.

I hope you’ll take a moment to check out FIGHT THE SHADOWS.
