With: Janie Crouch          

It’s just one short month until OVERWHELMING FORCE hits shelves.

I have to admit when I submitted my proposal to my Harlequin Intrigue editor for the Omega Sector: Critical Response series, this story wasn’t even in there.  But I had submitted a proposal for five books and they wanted six for the series.

And they wanted that sixth proposal fast. So I had ONE DAY to come up with the bones of a story.

OVERWHELMING FORCE ended up being that story, and honestly, it turned out to be one of the best in the series. It just flowed out of me, a pleasure to write.

Joe Matarazzo, the hero of the book, is one of my favorites of all time.  Millionaire playboy and top hostage negotiator for Omega Sector.  He’s charming and always knows what to say.

Except for when it comes to trying to win back Laura Birchwood. After the way he broke her heart five years ago, she wants nothing to do with him.

But she’s also the only person Joe can trust when someone starts killing his ex-girlfriends and framing Joe.

Here’s a tiny teaser from OVERWHELMING FORCE. I hope you’ll #GetOverwhelmed on November 22 and enjoy reading Joe and Laura’s story as much as I did writing it.


He lost her once. He won't lose her again. 

Despite an illustrious career as a top hostage negotiator, Joe Matarazzo is haunted by the past. It was a year ago that three innocent lives were lost under his watch. But Joe isn't the only one who remembers that day. When Joe's exes begin to fall victim to a violent stalker, Joe seeks the help of Laura Birchwood—a lawyer and the woman he once loved. Despite old wounds, Laura agrees to help Joe find out who's framing him. And while they expect to be met with danger, they're unprepared for passion that still burns strong, and their determination to give what was between them a second chance.
