By the way, at the end of today’s post is a chance to win a copy of either the first or second book in this series, the winner’s choice, as well as the winners of Linda Hutsell-Manning’s novel THAT SUMMER IN FRANKLIN.
Michelle, thank you so much for having me here today to help celebrate the release of my second novel, and welcome to my pre-launch party for COVERT MISSION: UNDERCOVER COP, book two in my Thunder Creek Ranch series, releasing Nov. 28 through Evernight Publishing. I'm so excited to be able to present my readers with another fascinating tale of romantic suspense. It is my sincere hope that you'll enjoy Samantha and Blake's story.
I met Sam and Blake while writing Zakia's story, and I knew then that I'd be writing a series, as they were such adorable characters, filled with truth, honesty and a touch of humor, even in the midst of danger. Their positive outlook and necessity to triumph against tough odds made them the people they are.
Yes, to me they are very real. Just as Zakia and Luke "spoke" to me during the writing of their story, Sam and Blake did the same. I know! I know! You think I'm crazy. Maybe I am, but during the writing, I felt their presence. I know what they've gone through to heal their hurts and move on with their lives. These two people put their lives on the line to protect those in danger. Honorable to a fault.
If you've read Zakia, then you already know that Sam is ex-military, relieved of duty on a medical discharge when flying shrapnel severed her right arm. Feel sorry for her? Nope. She is one feisty, independent and determined lady.
Blake is gorgeous! The proverbial tall, dark and handsome cowboy. He owns a horse ranch and is a constable in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as well. Honorable, gentle, reliable and protective; it's the last that raises Sam's hackles. Frustrated at not being able to break through her defenses, he thinks of giving up the chase, but the tide turns and ... well, you'll just have to read it to see what happens. :)
COVERT MISSION: UNDERCOVER COP is 15 percent off at Evernight Publishing for the first two weeks upon release.
I love writing! Does it show? LOL. I also love hearing from my readers! It's important to know what works and doesn't work for you as I continue to craft stories of love and mystery. You can find me at:

Thank you so much, Lorraine, for including my blog as part of your weeklong virtual book tour. I was lucky enough to win a copy of ZAKIA AND THE COWBOY, and it's a keeper as Lorraine excels in creating a book with memorable characters, gripping scenes, heartfelt emotions and a wow level of heat. The rich details about life on a cattle ranch were an extra bonus. I predict Lorraine is an author whose name readers will avidly look forward to seeing on future covers.
COVERT MISSION BLURB
Two cops have been murdered, two convicts have escaped. Samantha Muldoon and Blake Northrup pair up to protect their friends. Will their attraction to each other hinder their effectiveness or distract them from their job? Can it grow into something lasting, or will previous hurt keep them apart?
