Iâ€™ve always loved to travel. Iâ€™m fortunate to have married a man who enjoys it as much as I do…or maybe being adventurous was an unspoken quality I was looking for in a man.
Since I live in rural Montana, a twenty five miles to the nearest movie theater–I especially love going to the city.
INTO THE FURY is set in Seattle. When ten of La Belle lingerieâ€™s most beautiful models receive death threats, its bodyguard Ethanâ€™s Brodieâ€™s job to protect them. Ethan goes toe to toe with bombshell blonde, Valentine Hart, in a fast-paced novel of action, adventure, and steamy romance.
I knew the story I wanted to tell, but I needed a starting point. From where we live, Seattle is the closest place I can go to get my â€œcity fix.â€ Plus itâ€™s a gorgeous place to visit, surrounded by the ocean and dozens of interesting islands, wonderful restaurants and great hotels.
Since Nick Brodie, my hero in AGAINST THE SKY, had moved to Seattle at the end of the book to get married and take a job with Brodie Operations Security Services, I decided to set my next three books there.
Ian Brodie owns the company the guys call BOSS, Inc. Nickâ€™s cousins Ethan and Luke also work there, an office just chock full of hunky guys.
One of the things that made Seattle ideal for the trilogy was the interesting diversity of the people who live there, which also means different sorts of crimes.
I knew the area, since we go there often. I was able to use hotels we had stayed in and restaurants like the gorgeous El Gaucho, where weâ€™ve dined and is very romantic.
Along with the trips to Seattle, I researched the criminal activity in the area and also used Google Earth to refresh my memory or help with locations I was less familiar with. Traveling for research can bring excitement, adventure, or just simple insight into a place different from where you live.
INTO THE FURY hit bookshelves on January 26, 2016 and is available in all e-book formats.
I hope youâ€™ll watch for INTO THE FURY and that you enjoy it. Next up, INTO THE WHIRLIND out May 31, followed by INTO THE FIRESTROM.
Till then, all best and happy reading.
