Thanks so much for having me here today to give you a peek at my new release, HER WILD
HERO, Book 3 in my action-packed X-OPS Series. You wouldnâ€™t believe
how difficult it was getting the hero and heroine together. Those two definitely
didnâ€™t make it easy for me. Which is why I thought it would be fun to catch up
with them and ask why they had to be so dang difficult!
1. Yours was not an easy romance, if you could give one piece of advice to
your past self, what would it be?
Declan: If I thought my past self would listen, and he probably
wouldnâ€™t, Iâ€™d say trust your heart and what itâ€™s trying to tell youâ€”even when
your head is telling you something completely different. I almost lost out on a
chance with Kendra because my head convinced me it was time to give up and move
on. I was being all logical and crap, and love isnâ€™t about that.
Kendra: Thatâ€™s an easy one. Iâ€™d tell myself not to be so
focused on the forest that you forget to see the trees. ClichĂ©, I know, but so
true. I thought I knew exactly the type of guy I wanted, and almost completely
missed the most amazing man that was right in front of me the whole time.
2. When did you know you loved Kendra?
Declan: This is probably going to sound crazy, but I think I
loved Kendra the day I met her. Maybe it was because she knew I was a shifter
and accepted me as I was. On top of that, she was funny, capable, confident, and
just so damn beautiful. But while I might have fallen in love with her right
away, it took me years to gather up the courage to tell her.
3. When did you know you loved Declan?
Kendra: Well, I guess the first time I really got it was in
that little cave in Costa Rica. Circumstances came together and we were able to
really talk honestly to each other, without one or the other of us getting
dragged away for some reason. When our lips touched, and I felt that zing Iâ€™ve
never felt with another man, I knew he was the one. Unlike Declan, it only took
me a few days to tell him how I felt, though I canâ€™t tell you how close we came
to almost blowing our shot.
4. What was your first impression of each other? How does it compare to your
Declan: Well, you already know I thought she was funny,
capable, confident, and gorgeous. But I have to admit, I didnâ€™t think she was
much of the outdoor type. Once I saw her in action in the jungles of Costa Rica,
though, I realized I had her all wrong. She can handle a weapon, sheâ€™s calm
under pressure, and she never complains, no matter how bad or crazy the
situation gets. It was a side of her I never knew existed, but it makes me love
her even more.
Kendra: When I first met him, I couldnâ€™t help but notice how
attractive he was. I mean, heâ€™s a big, muscular hunk, so how could I not? But
Iâ€™m sorry to say I immediately put him in the â€śfriend category.â€ť God, was I
stupid! But he always seemed like this big, cuddly teddy bear, and I didnâ€™t
think that was what I wanted. Once I got him alone, I discovered just how wrong
Iâ€™d been. Well, heâ€™s still a teddy bear, but thereâ€™s a passion and edge to him
that few people get to seeâ€”except me of course.
Department of Covert Operations Training Officer Kendra Carlsen has been begging
her boss to let her go into the field for years. When he finally agrees to send
her along on a training exercise in Costa Rica, sheâ€™s thrilled.
Bear-shifter Declan MacBride, on the other hand, is anything but pleased. Heâ€™s
been crushing on Kendra since he started working at the DOC seven years ago.
Spending two weeks in the same jungle with her is putting a serious strain on him.
When the team gets ambushed, Kendra and Declan are forced to depend on each
other. But the bear-shifter soon discovers that fighting bloodthirsty enemies
isnâ€™t nearly as hard as fighting his attraction to the beautiful woman heâ€™ll do
anything to protect.
