So…what do we call it?

Congratulations to "Patricia B.", the winner in Jacki's giveaway.
Please contact JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE to claim your prize!

For the last several months I’ve been working on a new story. In a new series. With new characters. Eventually I finished the manuscript but then faced a troublesome quandary: What to call it. I needed more than a title. I needed a name for this new series, along with branding elements such as a tag line and distinctive covers.

I huddled with my team (translation: cover designer and assistant) and we came up with a great concept that I’m thrilled to reveal. Readers of romantic suspense may know me from my Code Breakers series (Regency romantic suspense) or my Grayce Walters series (contemporary romantic suspense set in Seattle). My new series is military romantic suspense—the heroes are SEALs, soldiers and secret agents. Strong, honorable warriors who stand tall and proud until brought to their knees by the women they love.

The first book in my brand new Impossible Mission romantic suspense series is Mission: Impossible to Resist. Here’s the cover and the plot.

Life could have been one continuous party for Seattle socialite Jordan Dean, the eldest daughter of a tech billionaire. Instead, she’s built a career as a physician and genetic researcher while looking out for her younger sister after the death of their mother.

Aiden Foster, Delta Force operative, is doing a favor for a SEAL buddy by temporarily bodyguarding Jordan. Despite coming from a privileged background himself, Aiden has zero interest in superficial debutantes, until meeting the gorgeous but tightly controlled researcher.

The simple, one-week assignment turns into a deadly game when Jordan’s sister is kidnapped by the Chinese Triad. The immediate assumption is that she will be ransomed for her father’s billions. Instead, the kidnappers demand Jordan turn over her cutting-edge research that could be sold on the dark web.

Aiden must protect Jordan from the violent gang willing to obtain her research at all costs. As the danger escalates, Jordan discovers she has been betrayed by individuals close to her. The only person she can trust is the man who’s been tasked with protecting her…but who poses a huge risk to her well-guarded heart.

Aiden manages to keep Jordan safe—until he’s ambushed and she’s taken. Now he’s working from the outside—and she’s using her brains to figure a way to keep her and her sister safe as well as her research. In an explosive finale, Jordan and Aiden take down the villain. Aiden’s one-week assignment is now far too short, so the couple begin negotiating something a little longer...

  1. The cover will always snag my attention first because that is what I see first but it's actually the book blurb that finalizes my decision on whether I want to read it.

  2. The cover grabs my attention first, but it is the blurb that convinces me to read it!

  3. All of the above!! This new series sounds right up my alley.

  4. For me the thing that will attract me to a book the most is the book blurb. If the story sounds like something I'll enjoy, the cover doesn't matter. I read lots of different types of books and enjoy a variety of character types, so it still boils down to whether or not the story itself sounds right for me

  5. Love a great cover. First thing that catches my eye. Then the author and title
