For years I read romance, you know the kind—the happy ever after ones with the perfect, rich men and their equally perfect women, who end up bagging the multi gazillionaire and all their problems are solved. Now, there is nothing wrong with these romances—they do their job, but after a while I began to crave something…more. The genre that jumped up and bite me happened to be a military themed romance and after the first one, I wanted more! This was my kind of romance—strong, lead men—usually less than perfect, not millionaires—just hard working, disciplined military men who’d served their countries and put their lives on the line for all of us…what’s not to love about a hero like that? The thing is, after a while, I ran out of books to read and that’s when I decided to write my own! As you do! Eleven years , and a lot of rejects and moments where I almost gave up—I got the very first military themed romance I ever wrote published!
Operation Summer Storm is the equivalent of an eldest child! It’s the one you practice all the rules on and make all your mistakes with. It’s also the one that means the most to you because of all the heartache it’s caused you! (Unlike real children where as a mother I can’t actually put a favourite label on!)
Operation Summer Storm is the story of Summer Sheldon who will do anything it takes to find her sister, and Tate Maddox, a US Marine—accused of a crime he didn’t commit and leading a life as a mercenary while he tried to uncover the real person responsible for his ghost-like existence. Two more unlikely people to ever meet you wouldn’t get, but when thrown into a situation beyond your control, comfort zones are a thing of the past!
