Have you ever met a person and you just felt an instant connection? You feel as if you’ve met a long lost friend. Even if you haven’t seen each other for years, you both can pick up the conversation as if you just saw each other yesterday.
Well, for me, Cindy Gerard is one of those people!
Cindy Gerard and I first met when we both won a RITA Award in 2003 during the Romance Writers of America’s Annual Convention, that year held in NYC. Cindy won for Short Category Romance and I won for Long Category Romance.
Fast forward to 2011.
What a treat it was to stand with Cindy again at the RITA ceremony. This time, we celebrated that we’ll be side by side on the shelves with our July romantic suspense novels: Cindy’s “Black Ops, Inc” book WITH NO REMORSE and my “Elite Force” book COVER ME.
I have adored Cindy and her books for years. But as a military spouse, I really connected with her when I heard of her great support for our troops overseas. (Thank you again, Cindy!) During this July 4th season, I find myself celebrating all the more our men and women in uniform, great heroes, not only in books, but in real life.
Who are some of your real life heroes and heroines? One lucky commenter will receive a copy of my July “Elite Force” novel – COVER ME.
COVER ME, “Elite Force” Book 1
Sourcebooks Casablanca, July 2011
It should have been a simple mission… Pararescueman Wade Rocha parachutes from the back of a helicopter into a blizzard to save a climber stranded on an Aleutian Island, but Sunny Foster insists she can take care of herself just fine…
But when it comes to passion, nothing is ever simple… With the snowstorm kicking into overdrive, Sunny and Wade hunker down in a cave and barely resist the urge to keep each other warm… until they discover the frozen remains of a horrific crime…
Unable to trust the shady local police, Sunny and Wade investigate, while their irresistible passion for each other gets them more and more dangerously entangled…
Cheers and Happy Reading!
