Wolf Mallory’s life isn’t settling down following his forced early retirement from military intelligence. Not only is he now a private investigator, he’s about to go up against the most dangerous foe yet–a billionaire megalomaniac with dreams of seeing the South rise again. Confederate gold, electrical grid hacking, and murder aren’t things Wolf was trained to deal with during his previous career…but he’s about to get some pretty intense on-the-job experience.

Georgia Pine ~ Southern Promises ~ Book Three

KG Fletcher

The agony of defeat never felt so real.

Never in a million years did Jessica Kaufman think she would be divorced from her real-estate mogul husband and left to raise four young daughters on her own in an affluent Atlanta subdivision. The very last thing she expects is an encounter with her gorgeous gardener who looks more like a sexy beast from her daughters’ favorite Disney movie. She is smitten with his evergreen eyes, wild mane of hair and impressive stature.

Tim McGill is in hiding – his reputation and celebrated career on the West Coast left in shambles. He moves far away to distance himself from his downfall and inconspicuously tends the upper-class landscapes to keep his renowned identity a secret. Unlike his typical wealthy clients, Jessica doesn’t seem to mind that he’s a gardener. One spark between them is all it takes to ignite a fiery passion that could explode if Tim’s identity is revealed. He must earn Jessica’s trust and finally come to terms with what he has lost.

Can Tim open his heart wide enough to let in a beautiful mother and her four little girls? Or will his Southern Belle turn her back on him and walk away from their happily-ever-after?

The Science Part of a Science Fiction Series

I write science fiction romance, and I do it in three book series. All the books in a series are set in the same futuristic world. Before I come up with characters and their romantic arcs, I figure out the science that will make the world unique and create interesting obstacles for the protagonists.

Fiery LadySurvivors of the Apocalypse is set in a future America more than three hundred years from present day. What has caused this catastrophe that had nearly wiped out mankind? Science, of course. In this series, it’s medical science. In a search for a universal vaccination, medical researchers accidentally unleash a virus that kills everyone. A domed city, built before the outbreak, serves as the only center of civilization where people live. Or are they the only ones? Out in the wilds of a de-populated United States, small pockets of survivors make a life. These survivors are the descendants of the few people who never received the vaccination, but their numbers are too few to sustain genetic diversity. These frontiersmen turn to the city in hopes to add to their numbers.

The science I researched:

Vaccinations and how immune systems work.

Number of people needed for genetic diversity.

Bone marrow transplants.

How starvation affects fertility rates.

Engineering problems likely in a domed city that is three centuries old.Exiled Lady

Surviving without electricity in a frontier situation.

All these science things add to the conflicts and obstacles the protagonists face. Add in the cultural differences between the frontiersmen and the city people, and there is more than enough conflict to keep the stories rolling along.

At the center of the story is a set of triplets, two men and one woman, who’ve grown up wild and rough on the frontier. When their aunt discovers a possible cure for the virus killing any city person who leaves the dome, each of the triplets will find the possible love of their lives.

Book #1 Hunter’s Exiled Lady

Book #2 Horse Tamer’s Fiery Lady

Book #3 Exile’s Savage Lady

I hope you enjoy some science in your romance novels. Be prepared for the hijinks when two cultures collide.

If you like country music…

Standard

Last week, I introduced you to KG Fletcher, a writer whose works I know very well. Her latest book, “Georgia Clay” is an amazing romance story with a deep background in country music.

Well, KG Fletcher is also a musician and she and some friends got together and wrote a song to go with the book. It’s called “What if…” and if you’re a country music fan, you should really give it a listen.

Check out her song here

And while you’re at it, check out her book “Georgia Clay” as well. You can’t go wrong with both music and great story.

And yes, that’s my opinion as a reader, a writer, a former musician, and a reviewer. Five stars for both.

Katie Parker is a workaholic Southern beauty who’s first love is her career. It’s not just her knowledge of the cut-throat insurance business she has skillfully navigated over the years, but her tenacity and gumption in climbing the corporate ladder.

The musician and career woman run into each other in the heat of the Atlanta summer at their ten-year high school reunion and unexpectedly end up in the bed of his pickup truck talking till dawn. As they forge ahead in a passionate long-distance relationship, can Clay admit to Katie she had his heart a long, long time ago? Will her drive and encouragement finally be the reason Georgia Clay takes a chance on his career…and love?

Excerpt 

 

“Let’s play a game,” he suggested.

“Okay.” Katie sat cross-legged on the bed, setting her half-eaten bagel on a paper napkin. “What’s this game called?” She seemed interested as she licked cream cheese off her lower lip.
