New WITSEC Series Announcement!

I Have A New Series!!!!!!!
My awesome new publisher, Avon Impulse, is excited about this three-book series, too. Want to know what it is about?
See my hint? Wait - let's take a moment to sigh over the awesomeness of one of the best written and best acted shows EVER. So hint #1 = mobsters.
my blue heaven
Except, you've all read my stuff. I'm not that dark and angsty girl. So my mobsters - ex-mobsters, actually - are a lot more light-hearted. More fish out of water funny, since they are in Witness Protection in a small town that they just do _not _ understand.
But my heroes - they are not like Steve Martin. Do not worry. They are far more in the vein of Han Solo. Bad boys with a heart of gold. Sexy as sin. Droolworthy and delicious. Three big city, bad boy brothers hiding from their mobster pasts struggle to fit into a small town but danger follows, putting their new futures - and their new relationships - at risk. So below (all subject to editorial change, of course!) is the lowdown on my bad boys - and look for the 1st book by this time next year!
Bad Boys Gone Good: Tiny and quirky coastal Bandon, Oregon—known for its cranberry festival and cheese—is the last place anyone would look for three brothers on the run from the Chicago Mob. At least, that’s what the US Marshals Service hopes. Rafe Maguire reached out voluntarily, asking to get his family put into witness protection. Staying in it, though…that’s not so easy. Their new, undercover lives don’t fit right. And fitting in is the only way to keep them safely hidden. There’s still a hefty sum of hidden cash waiting for them back in Chicago. Will falling in love be enough to keep them on the straight and narrow?
Too Bad To Love: Feeling indebted to the people who helped raise her, Dr. Mollie Vickers gave up a lucrative city career to practice medicine back home. She loves what she does, but her tiny Oregon town doesn’t allow for many dating options. And then a dangerously handsome mechanic she’s never seen before rescues her from a flat tire on the side of the road…
Rafe Maguire resents the hell out of having to run and hide. But he has brothers to protect, brothers he’d die for, which means they have to make things work in the latest podunk town where WITSEC dumped them--or else they’re out of the program. The last thing he needs is a woman complicating his life further, especially a do-gooder doctor he meets on the job. It shouldn’t matter that her body revs his engine and her smile thaws his long-frozen heart. No, it shouldn’t matter at all. It can’t.
Mollie starts to fall for the man who looks rough, talks tough, but takes the time to straighten out her hooligan cousin. She falls even harder as he weaves himself into the fabric of her beloved town. Rafe’s got his hands full with two pissed-off brothers to keep in line, a U.S. marshal watching their every move, and a new life - that doesn’t fit him at all - to somehow embrace. And yet Dr. Do-Gooder’s tender care of Rafe earns his loyalty and heats his blood. But Rafe can’t risk trusting Mollie with his secrets.
Their mind-blowing sex turns into something more. When she learns the truth, will Mollie choose to protect her town - and her heart - or take a chance at love with an ex-mobster who might not be as reformed as he thinks?
Too Bad Together Flynn Maguire looked - on paper - like a successful businessman. And he was - both at running a construction company and using it to launder money for the mob. Until they turned on him. .Now he’s starting over in a new town, forced into hiding by gangsters seeking revenge, and stuck bar tending. Which at least gives him plenty of time to stare at the pretty waitress with secrets in her eyes.
Sierra Woodley is on the run from a very big mistake - falling for the wrong guy. Who used her art to do something very illegal. All she wants is to stay hidden until she figures out what to do...and how to stay out of jail. Except she’s recently discovered that she wants something else. Or rather, someone else. The hot, brooding bartender who always treats her as gently as if she’s made of spun sugar.
The chemistry between Sierra and Flynn can’t be ignored. Neither can the fact that they’re both hiding pretty much their entire lives from each other. But can the heat between them last once the truth is out?
Too Bad To Handle Kellan Maguire was only a semester away from becoming a lawyer and fulfilling a deathbed promise to his dad when everything changed. Now he's on the run from the mob, living a secret life in an armpit of a town and working as a caddy. He’s mad as hell at his criminal brothers for lying to him about, oh, everything. The only bright spot is their U.S. Marshal handler. Yeah, he wants to handle her....a lot.
Federal Marshal Delaney Evans has protected a lot of bad, dangerous men. But the Maguire brothers are a whole different level of dangerous. Dangerously hot, to be specific. And in spite of all the rules it would break, she secretly fears she’d risk everything for one night with Kellan. Because the man is irresistible.
One night that is totally wrong turns into more nights that feel so right. But Kellan’s life is in danger when the mob tracks him down. Delaney’s career, her entire world, could implode if she admits how important he is to her. And all that is before the biggest complication of all hits…...

My book in there? A very fun backstage romance.

Linnea Larson is willing to do anything to keep her family’s Minneapolis dinner theatre from going under. Anything, that is, besides accepting a date from the Hollywood hunk hired to inject a dose of star power into their production of Guys & Dolls. It’s a toss up whether his greatest claim to fame is playing a superhero on screen, or a super stud off screen. Neither fact convinces her he’s got what it takes to share her stage.

Luke Powell has fame, fortune, and an endless string of women, but also a lingering dissatisfaction with his picture perfect life. Looking for a change, he escapes to his theatrical roots. What he finds are wary cast mates, a nervous best friend convinced the show will ruin Luke’s career, and an adorable costar who stubbornly refuses to go out with him. Suddenly singing and dancing aren’t the only challenges he’ll tackle over the summer. 

Despite Luke dragging her into his daily paparazzi nightmare, Linnea can’t deny her mounting attraction to his irresistible charm. And even if she’s crazy enough to chance getting involved, their fling would have a guaranteed expiration date. He’s headed back to Hollywood at the end of the run, and she's tied to her family's theatre. Why risk the inevitable heartbreak? Their job is to act like they’re in love, but will they decide it's worth the leap to fall in love for real?
