Back Cover Blurb:

Computer security specialist Elizabeth Martinez has never been able to turn her back on her brother Benny. When his risky lifestyle finally lands him in harm’s way, Elizabeth finds herself dragged into the dangerous underworld with him and into the cross hairs of one of Miami’s death-dealing drug lords. Only after her ex-boyfriend saves her does she realize she might have no choice but to depend on the one man she has tried so desperately to forget.

Former Marine Porter Caldwell never should have let Elizabeth walk away from him all those months ago. She means more to him than anything and now that she’s in danger and turned to him for help, he won’t make that mistake again. When a local gang targets her and she’s nearly killed in a drive by shooting, Porter vows to do whatever it takes to keep her alive. Even if it means turning his back on all that he’s sworn to uphold.

Barnes & Noble:
“Listen, about last night…”

He shook his head. “Don’t worry about anything. I already talked to Harrison and he doesn’t have a problem with you not coming into work today, and Grant wants to talk to you personally so you can—”
“Wait, what? First of all, I’m not skipping work, but I do want to talk to Grant. And I wasn’t talking about that. I thought maybe…” She trailed off, hating the way her cheeks heated up. Yeah, talking about that kiss probably wasn’t the best idea. Obviously they were on two separate wavelengths. He was clearly more level headed than her. She was obsessing over it and he wanted to discuss what was actually important. She definitely needed to pull her head out of the clouds.
His pale eyes darkened as he scooted a fraction closer to her. “You shouldn’t be out today.”
“Why? Because some losers burned numbers into my lawn? I’m not going to live in fear. Besides, I work at one of the most secure buildings in Miami. I’d rather be there surrounded by people than cooped up here.”
He sat his mug down with a thud. “Damn it, Lizzy—”
“Don’t you ‘Lizzy’, me. You only use that name when you want something and it’s not going to work this time.” If he thought he could use her attraction to him against her, he was out of his mind.
She watched in fascination as a faint shade of red crept up his neck. “That’s not true.”
“Yes, it is. You always call me Elizabeth unless you’re trying to charm me.” Or when you’re kissing me. She decided to keep that thought to herself though.
“I’m not trying to charm you,” he muttered.
Her eyebrows rose. “Then what would you call it?”
“I’m trying to make you use common sense.”
She snorted very loudly, earning a surprised look from him, but she didn’t care. Pushing her chair back, she stood. “I’m not staying here and there’s nothing you can say to make me change my mind. I’ll go crazy so if you don’t mind, I’m going to shower.” Lizzy started to leave, but he grasped her upper arm.
Not hard, but he exerted enough pressure that she couldn’t move.
She glared at him. “Let me go.”
“You need to talk to Grant.”
“I will, but it doesn’t have to be here. I can meet him at the police station or he can come to my office or wherever.”
“You’ll be safer here,” he ground out.
She dug her heels in but didn’t say anything. He could argue until he was blue in the face. It wasn’t as if he could hold her hostage.
At her lack of response, he practically growled at her. “Why do you have to be so stubborn?”
“Why do you always think you know what’s best for me?” she shot back.
“You’re the most frustrating woman I know.” He let her arm drop and scrubbed a hand over his face. Without another word he moved past her and disappeared from the kitchen.
She stared at his retreating figure and frowned. Porter never let his guard down. Ever. But it seemed he was just as off-kilter in her presence as she was in his. The realization was strangely refreshing.

All Romance eBooks:

Katie fell in love with romance at a young age thanks to books she pilfered from her mom’s stash. Years later she loves reading romance almost as much as she loves writing it. However, she didn’t always know she wanted to be a writer. After graduating summa cum laude with a degree in psychology and working too many jobs she hated, she finally figured things out.
She now spends her days writing dark paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense. Her publishers include Carina Press, Harlequin Nocturne and NAL/Signet Eclipse (Penguin). Regardless of genre, she always includes a happy ending. When she’s not creating stories she loves spending time with her husband and family.

Thank so much for hosting me!

Anne, that's a great question but I can't choose. I really love them both equally. I usually flip flop between the genres so it keeps my writing fresh :)

Hi, Michele! Yes, I definitely have more books planned. Right now I'm planning to release two in the first half of next year and I'm hoping to get two more out in the second half of 2013 :)
