Happy Book Birthday to Rescue Me!!!
Hard to believe that five years ago today my first book, Rescue Me, was released. I have so many wonderful memories about this book. I still remember the incredible rush I felt at finishing a story that came straight from my heart. The email from my future agent telling me she enjoyed the book and wanted to talk. (Yes there were tears!) And the astounding feeling of selling Rescue Me, along with two other as yet unnamed books, to a publisher. (Yes there were more tears!)
The day Rescue Me was released, I had a terrible upper respiratory infection and stayed in bed most of the day coughing my head off. Even as sick as I was, I wouldn't change a thing about that day. It was so very fine. :)
Five years of being a published author has been a wonderful, mind-blowing journey. There have been joys, disappointments, regrets, and excitement beyond anything I'd ever imagined. Even though we've parted ways, I will always be grateful to my agent for taking on a newbie author who knew next to nothing about the business and my publisher for not only buying my first book, but subsequently publishing eight more in that series and two others of another series. Getting anywhere in this business is often a team effort and their support made all the difference.
To celebrate Rescue Me's birthday, I'm giving away five signed copies. If you've never read the first book in the Last Chance Rescue series, or if you've read it but would like a signed copy, or if you'd like to gift it to someone, comment on this blog with your name and email address so I can get in touch with you if you win. I'll announce the winners Wednesday, April 30.
DARE TO SURVIVE

action-packed, romantic suspense trilogy features a beautiful operative
for an elite rescue organization, dealing with a rugged new partner, a
dangerous mission …and her own secret past.
covert operative of Last Chance Rescue Enterprises (LCR), Eden St.
Claire has made secrets her life’s work. Seven years ago, an

her. Now Eden wears her beauty like a mask, concealing any hint of
vulnerability or demons of her past.

to a new partner. Jordan Montgomery, new to LCR, has been looking
for Eden—though he knows
her by another name, from another time. But his search for her is overshadowed

and a killer all wait for Eden’s next move.
