THIS LOVE OF MINE
Kidnapped on a trip to London, Lady Eleanor Whitmore awakes in the hold of a ship with no memory of her past or of her perfect marriage to Lord James Haddington III, Earl of Windhaven. All she knows is that a fierce and stunningly handsome pirate is yelling about women being bad luck on a voyage. Adrift at sea in both body and mind, she finds herself falling in love with the pirate captain, whose flashing eyes and muscular frame leave her breathless.
Lord James resisted the shackles by marriage until he met Eleanor. Her beauty and charms captured his heart, and now that she's disappeared, he vows he will find her or die trying. His search becomes a chase to the New World, a trip that could destroy him as Eleanor's bonds with a pirate captain tighten. Can James provoke her memory and win her love, or will the pirate steal her heart forever...

Only she wants nothing to do with him. Or his protection. And he can't leave her alone...
Sparks fly from the first meet -- in more ways than one.
But when energy flares it also attracts. And the killer realizes he can kill two enemies in one swoop. He's cleaning up. Turning a new leaf.
And wants no one left alive who can stop him...

Up next for me is INTO THE FIRESTORM, out January 31st, one of my all-time favorites and the final book in my BOSS, Inc. trilogy. To my delight, RT Book Reviews loved INTO THE FIRESTORM, thought I would share their review...
"With a chilling plot, non-stop adrenaline-pumping action and fast-paced dialogue, Martin's latest B.O.S.S. Inc. novel is rock-solid. The complex ex-soldier hero and ex-teacher turned kick-butt bounty hunter heroine have combustible chemistry -- and travel an explosive and bittersweet road to their HEA. The skillfully placed humor really lightens this extremely dark, suspenseful tale. "-- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
KOBO picked book #1, INTO THE FURY, as one of the best titles of the year for 2016. And, INTO THE WHIRLWIND, book #2, has been selected as one of Suspense Magazine's "Best of 2016" books in Romantic Suspense. Both books hit top ten spots on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Needless to say, there is lots of excitement about the BOSS, Inc trilogy and highly anticipated release of INTO THE FIRESTORM, a story I hope readers will love.
Hope you'll watch for INTO THE FIRESTORM! :) Kat
Looking for a fresh vista on vampires? BLOOD BETWEEN LOVERS is now available in print for a special price of $9.99 for a limited time and digitally for $4.99 at all your favorite online sites!
BLOOD BETWEEN LOVERS is the second installment of the Eternal Eros Trilogy. A vampire. Alone. Struggles to validate his existence. But only the love of a woman is worth the price of immortality.
NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Susan Sizemore said, "For a genuinely fresh and fantastic new take on vampire romance, Raz Steel is your go-to-guy and the one to watch."
In the late nineteenth century, Dr. Sigmund Freud prescribed Love Without Blood for his vampire patient Bobby Eyre... because blood is the Vampiric Eros for life, love, sexuality, preservation and the only way to cling to his humanity!
LOVE WITHOUT BLOOD, book one of the Eternal Eros Trilogy, available digitally and in print now, sparked a four star review from Romantic Times BOOKreviews. "This debut is a highly entertaining and unique take on the vampire genre. Steel's novel is sure to keep you guessing, especially after you think you have it figured out."

And let me drop a hint here that you haven't seen the last of that particular rebellion. . .because it's spreading! Look for a new story in early spring.
Also, available now in eBook are some old classics, in particular my very first RITA Award winner, ANGEL FOR HIRE, and also an old favorite, TO HOLD AN EAGLE. New editions with great new covers, but the same classics you remember, unchanged.
There's lots more coming up soon, including a brand new venture with the dynamic Tule Publishing Group that I'm very excited about.
