Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas! We are so excited to have you here today!
I’m THRILLED to be here. Thanks so much for having me!
1. Can you tell us three things about yourself that we might not already know?
Great question. Well, I was a competitive swimmer in high school and was in the top ten in the state. My favorite movie of all time is My Fair Lady. And, for those romantic suspense fans out there, I have attended an autopsy.
2. What is your favorite type of character to write? Least favorite?
Oooh….I must admit I LOVE villains. I love motivating someone with a twisted view of the world. Now, you gotta wonder what that says about me…but I just can’t get enough of the bad guys!
The toughest character to write is one is who contented with who they are…so, for the most part, I simply torture my people. That way, I don’t have to write my least favorite character!
3. When you are deep into writing what is your biggest pet peeve?
When I write my characters into a corner in a direction they wouldn’t go. I really hate deleting pages or entire scenes…why don’t I listen to them? Why, oh why, oh why? If I just listened to the people I made up, things would be much, much easier. LOL.
4. Does music ever play a part in your writing process?
I can’t listen to music with words when I’m writing. I’m a big fan of soundtracks because they inherently contain emotion. My current favorite is the soundtrack from Knight and Day. Lots of driving music and when you write Romantic Suspense, you need tension.
I guess, at its heart, the soundtracks I use connect to the emotion of the scene I’m writing. Intense, passionate, light-hearted. I like the music to match the tone of the scene.
5. Now for the most important question…What can we expect for the future of this series?
I’m SO excited about my two series.
Behind the Lies is the second Montgomery Justice Novel . In Her Sights (Luke’s story) was the first book. There will be two more (so far). Bound By Secrets (Gabe’s story) and Edge of Deceit (Seth’s story). Over the course of the novels, we will discover a big secret about the Montgomery family patriarch, Patrick Montgomery. And you’ll meet all six of the Montgomery brothers.
Then, there are my Carder Texas books. I’ve dubbed them Carder Texas Connections. When danger strikes, the heroes of Carder, Texas strike back. All of my Harlequin Intrigue novels will eventually tie back to Carder. Even the first one, Finding Her Son (March 2012) is loosely connected through its characters—which you discover in October, 2012’s Christmas Conspiracy. Cowboy in the Crossfire, a 2013 RITA finalist, introduces Carder. Undercover Texas (an RT Top Pick, June 2013, and The Cradle Conspiracy (December 2013) continue the legacy. It’s been a blast to write.
Thank you so much for being here today and we hope you will come back again very soon!

So, now MY question. I’d love to know what your dear readers’ favorite type of character is to read.
His most important mission brought him to Texas—and reunited him with the son he never met…
RT Top Pick. 4.5 Stars. “Perini’s action-packed, terrifying tale grips the reader from the first sentence and doesn’t let go until the final climactic page.”
IN HER SIGHTS
Montgomery Justice, Book 1
SWAT Team Sniper Jasmine "Jazz" Parker can thread the eye of a needle with a bullet. As the only female sniper in the state of Colorado, Jazz is unique for more than her extraordinary marksmanship skills and cool head. Jazz Parker and her weapon defend the helpless by exacting swift and uncompromising justice. Not bad for the daughter of the town whore.
After growing up on the seedy side of town, Jazz believed when she'd changed her name and her life at fifteen, she'd buried her past. Two years ago, she even drove away the one man she believed she could love—ex-Army Ranger turned reporter Luke Montgomery—to protect her secret.
Then, in a fleeting second, the time it takes for one clean shot, one perfect hit, to save the life of the Governor's daughter, Jazz's world begins to crumble around her. Her past and her present now threaten to destroy the life she has carefully constructed for herself. Her face and name have been splashed across the front page—by none other than Luke Montgomery—and her past has reawakened with a vengeance. A vicious enemy is bent on destroying Jazz's life, forcing her to turn to the one man she can never have in order to stop a killer before she and everyone she cares about pay with their lives.

BEHIND THE LIES
Montgomery Justice, Book 2
Of the six Montgomery brothers, Zach has always walked on the wild side. He rocketed to fame playing a hero in a movie, but offscreen he’s living in the shadows. Zach’s dark secret: he leads a double life as a CIA operative. When a mission to stalk a terrorist goes horribly wrong, Zach’s cover is blown. He’s on the run and fighting to stay alive long enough to discover whom he can trust—and who betrayed him.
Jenna Walters thought she’d married the perfect man—until she unearthed his terrible secret. Now, desperate to escape his crosshairs, she and her son take refuge in Zach’s secret hideaway. Sparks fly between Zach and Jenna even as danger explodes around them.
From Afghanistan to Turkey to the mountains of Colorado, assassins track them and are closing in. Not only is Zach’s life at stake, but now Jenna and her son are targets in this high stakes game.

BEHIND THE LIES TRAILER
She’d give the FBI one last chance.
“Fallon.” The crisp voice on the other end of the phone didn’t calm her as it had in the past. In fact, he sounded shaken.
No more out of sorts than she. “He knows.”
“One of the bugs is in pieces. I’m telling you, he knows. I’ve got to get out of here. Now. I don’t know why he hasn’t already killed me. Probably because he couldn’t find a babysitter on such short notice.” The forced laugh didn’t hide the panic in her voice.
Who was she kidding? She shoved underwear into the bag and yanked open another drawer.
“Wait a minute, Jenna. Let’s think this through. We can salvage the operation.” He didn’t sound like himself. Something was wrong. The gut instinct that abandoned her when Brad had swept her off her feet revved into overdrive.
For months after her dad had died, she’d survived on the streets, instinct and desperation her only allies. At fourteen she’d kept herself safe by trusting her gut.
Right now, every fiber in her being told her that the man on the other end of the phone was lying to her.
She couldn’t afford to doubt. Besides, why should she be surprised that another person she’d trusted was a liar?
