Big News and Contest!

Guess what? Dangerous Attraction just hit the New York Times list! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Thank you so much to all my wonderful readers who helped put the box list there!

And in other great news, Extinguished is now live! Right now it's up everywhere but Kobo and iBooks, where it should appear shortly. You can find the buy links on my website.

I'm so excited for you all to read Blake and Jordyn's story. I had the pleasure of passing research questions to a former Marine Scout/Sniper for this one, so you know how much I enjoyed learning everything he told me. I hope you learn a thing or two about snipers that you didn't before.

She’s wanted him forever…
For years former Marine Jordyn Bridger has been in love with a man who refused to see her as anything but his best friend’s little sister. A mind-blowing kiss finally changed that, but then he disappeared from her life. Now he’s back, to recruit her for a job with his NSA-sanctioned Titanium Security team. They’re going after the terrorist responsible for the recent attacks on their team and Jordyn is eager to lend her skill set to the hunt. She’s determined to prove to Blake that she’s capable of holding her own—both in the bedroom and on the battlefield.
He’s never walking away again…
Former Marine Scout/Sniper Blake Ellis hid his true feelings for Jordyn for years out of respect for her and her family, but once he learns those feelings aren’t one-sided, he can’t keep his distance any longer. When a team tragedy thrusts Jordyn into the front line with him on a battlefield, Blake will do whatever it takes to protect her. She’s everything he ever wanted in a woman but he was too stubborn to see it. Now it might be too late for them. As they race to capture the terrorist they’re hunting, Blake and Jordyn find themselves fighting for their lives. If they want to make it out alive they must work together to defeat an unseen, powerful network that will stop at nothing until their entire team is dead.

Congrats on the NYT list, Kaylea, and for the release of Extinguished! I just bought my copy from B&N and I can't wait to read it. :)

Kaylea Cross said...

Thank you so much! I'm still so excited. I really believe in this series and my readers seem to like it so far.

Hope you enjoy Extinguished!

CMD said...

Congrats on both! I had DANGEROUS ATTRACTION preordered for aeons and am ~75% through, and I ditched all those ARCs I should be reviewing for the blog in favour of EXTINGUISHED the second it went live :)

Timitra said...

Added Extinguished to my "want to read shelf" and tweeted using @taccb.

I have to thank Michelle from Ms. Romantic Reads and the gang at "For Love of Military Romance" for suggesting this series.

I can't believe I hadn't read your books, Kaylea, since I'm a huge fan of military heroes/heroines, especially Veterans. But, I 1-clicked the lot and will start reading them this week.

Here's my tweet:

This was exactly the push I needed to write the Titanium Security review I've been pondering for a while! GREAT job on the fourth book - I couldn't believe how good it was. :-)

It's got a review on my blog

I tweeted about it and naturally it's existed on my Goodreads account since you put the book up as available (it's in the "read" folder now, however)

Thanks for such terrific characters and such a page-turning story. I'm pulling for Sean!! ;-)

Just changed my twitter avatar to your book cover - I've been meaning to change the picture anyway, figured your cover was much better to look at than having to stare at my face all time!
