I'm so excited to bring you the first book in a brand new multi-author collaborative series. RYDER is book one in the 7 Brides for 7 Soldiers series, and it's out now!
I'm writing the series with six fabulous writers: Roxanne St. Claire, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Julia London, Cristin Harber and Samantha Chase. We've been brainstorming the last few months, creating the fictional town of Eagle's Ridge, which in southeastern Washington State. It's a town by the Snake River and framed by the majestic Blue Mountains. It was founded by four WWII veterans and a tradition of military service was passed through multiple generations. But shortly after the town was founded, a feud began between two of the founding fathers, John Westbrook and Max Tucker, and that feud is still dividing the town sixty-something years later.
My hero RYDER Westbrook and the other hot soldiers, Adam, Zane, Wyatt, Jack, Noah and Ford actually met during detention in their senior year of high school. It was the first time Ryder, who came from the wealthier side of the river, got to know some of the kids from the not-so-wealthy-side, including twins Adam and Zane Tucker.
Years later, all the guys are either leaving the service or already out and making their way back to Eagle's Ridge. Ryder, a former Navy helicopter pilot is starting a new chapter in his life, made more complicated by Bailey Tucker, Adam and Zane's little sister. Bailey is a beautiful, fiery blonde who turns Ryder's life upside down. But she's a Tucker and he's a Westbrook–how on earth is that going to work?
I really loved writing this story. It's romantic, sexy, fun, heart-warming. I hope you'll love it, and I hope you'll give all the books in the series a try. You can read an excerpt from Ryder here! We're also running a giveaway with weekly prizes and a grand prize of an iPad Mini given out in mid December. Enter the giveaway!
