Readers always ask me where I get my story ideas. I got my start as a newspaper reporter, and often my inspiration comes from current events. I’m constantly skimming headlines and asking myself, “What if...?”

My new book BEYOND LIMITS was sparked after I read a news article about Navy SEALs and wondered what would happen if one of these highly trained warriors learned about an impending attack on American soil. Would he be able to leave it to someone else to handle, or would he feel compelled to intervene?

BEYOND LIMITS opens with Navy SEAL Derek Vaughn, who is on a harrowing rescue mission overseas when he finds evidence of an attack being planned in the city where he grew up. He returns home determined to help thwart disaster. Derek decides his best way in to the FBI’s investigation is to manipulate a woman he cares about—Special Agent Elizabeth LeBlanc—into giving him inside information. With the help of the forensic experts at the Delphi Center, Derek and Elizabeth embark on a race against time to stop a deadly plot.

BEYOND LIMITS is the eighth book in my Tracers series. Derek and Elizabeth first met in SCORCHED, which won the 2013 RITA Award for romantic suspense. Readers have been asking for Derek and Elizabeth’s story, and I’m thrilled to share it with you!

To celebrate the new book I’m giving away a Tracers tote bag and a signed BEYOND LIMITS bookmark. Leave a comment for a chance to win!

An excerpt from BEYOND LIMITS

She crossed the hotel room with a flutter in her stomach and peered through the peephole. For a moment, she just stared. Square jaw, erect posture, ridiculously muscled body. In her memories, she’d made him less impressive, more average-looking. But of course, that was wishful thinking. There was nothing average about this man, and he was standing outside her room, refusing to go away.

He looked directly at the peephole and her heart skittered. He knew she was gawking. She pulled open the door and her heart did another little dance. She’d forgotten his eyes, too--whiskey brown with gold flecks. The look in them now was pure determination.

God help her, he’d come here on a mission...


An FBI agent and a Navy SEAL race against time in New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin’s newest Tracers novel.

FBI agent Elizabeth LeBlanc is still caught in the aftermath of her last big case when she runs into the one man from her past who is sure to rock her equilibrium even more. Navy SEAL Derek Vaughn is back home from a harrowing rescue mission in which he found evidence of a secret terror cell on US soil. Elizabeth knows he’ll do anything to unravel the plot—including seducing her for information. And despite the risks involved, she’s tempted to let him. Together with the forensics experts at the Delphi Center, Derek and Elizabeth are closing in on the truth, but it may not be fast enough to avert a devastating attack…
