COLTON BABY HOMECOMING

With: Lara Lacombe

Congratulations to Tammy Y., Trude V., and Bn100, the winners in Lara's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!


Hi, everyone!  I'm thrilled to be back on the blog today to talk to you about my newest release, COLTON BABY HOMECOMING.  This is book 3 in the Coltons of Texas miniseries from Harlequin Romantic Suspense, but if you haven't read the first two books, it's okay.  The hero, Ridge Colton, is the son of a notorious serial killer.  He's worked hard to put the sins of his father behind him, but when a new killer starts to copy his father's MO, Ridge and his siblings have to work together to find the killer and bring them to justice--if they can.  Here's the back cover blurb:

Someone has left a baby on the porch of search and rescue expert Ridge Colton's log cabin. Who? And why? A loner, Ridge knows nothing about caring for an infant. But when the woman who broke his heart years ago shows up to help, he's reminded of everything he once almost had. 

From a wealthy family, Dr. Darcy Marrow was dissuaded from loving the man whose name meant one thing in town: shame. But with a dangerous thug trying to kidnap the baby, Ridge discovers how far he'll go to protect the little one, Darcy…and his long-guarded heart.

This was a really fun book to write!  Ridge works as a search and rescue operator with his partner, a chocolate Labrador named Penny.  I had a blast doing the research for this profession, and I was amazed by what the search and rescue dogs are capable of doing, not to mention the close, intense bond that forms between a dog and its handler.  I already think of my cats as 'furry people,' but these dogs take it to a whole other level!

This book will always have a special place in my heart because I wrote it soon after giving birth to my first child.  Ironically, the book kicks off with Ridge finding an abandoned baby on his front porch, so he too was thrust into the role of infant caregiver.  My sleepless nights and other baby-related adventures definitely gave me some good fodder for Ridge and his new little one!

I hope you enjoy reading about Ridge, the baby, and Darcy, Ridge's old flame who is back in town.  If you need me, I'll be in the corner napping with my baby ;)

Giveaway:
I'm happy to offer 3 print copies of COLTON BABY HOMECOMING to commenters (US and Canada only, please).  Tell me, do you have any pets?  Ridge talks to Penny a lot, and I know I talk to my cats all the time.  Do you have conversations with your critters, or is it just me?

  10. I have two rescues: a Greyhound and an Italian Greyhound. They follow me around everywhere and treat me like I'm the Alpha dog (which, of course, I am.) Can't wait to read Colton Baby Homecoming and see if Ridge is the alpha. :)

  12. My pets are tropical fish. Not the best pet for company but they are interesting to watch. Yes, I do talk to them. Not a lot because they swim away so obviously not interested in humans.
