The Associates: cover and blurb reveal!

Look! It's my new cover and blurb for the first book in The Associates, my new romantic suspense series.

This is the kind of series I’ve been dying to write. I’m so excited about it! 

The Associates revolves around the Association, a powerful undercover organization of badass agents who use their expertise in nerdy things like logistics and linguistics as well as muscle and firepower to fight some seriously evil people. And they get tangled up with strong, smart heroines. Every book in the series stands alone. 

le blurb:


Angel Ramirez left the safecracking game five years ago, and she’s worked hard to make amends and build an honest life. But when a beloved aunt is kidnapped, she must reunite with her girl gang to acquire the unique ransom: Walter Borgola’s prized diamonds. It’s a simple job that turns into a nightmare, thanks to a surprisingly clever—and searingly sexy—security guard named Cole Hawkins.


Cole is one of the Association’s most brilliant agents, under deep cover investigating a ruthless killer. He’s also running out of time: hundreds will die if he doesn’t stop the plan Borgola’s set into motion. Catching Angel is the break he needed--he promises not to turn her in if she poses as his lover and uses her unique talents to unlock the sociopath’s dungeon vaults.

But as pretend passions turn real, Cole regrets drawing Angel into his deadly game…and danger is closer than either of them could ever imagine.


The cover is by the fabulous Su at Earthly Charms. Book 1 is due out this spring. Book 2 is due out in summer. It will be out in ebook in all the usual vendors. I'm not sure how I'll do print yet. The books in this series come in at around 50K-60K words each, so I may double up stories to make print more economical for people.
