Just in time for Christmas I received one of the greatest gifts EVER!!! As most Mavens readers know back in October I sent a manuscript into Samhain Publishing and have been chewing my nails to the nub waiting.

No more waiting. I received an email from Jewell Mason, a lovely editor at Samhain. She said thanx but no thanx....

PSYCH!!! LOL I'd not be shouting, dancing and acting the fool if I hadn't received a CONTRACT for Callye's Justice! WAHOOO!!!!! This is planned to be book one in a series called Gateway Guardians. This series is about a team of DEA agents based at the St. Louis field office and their fight to stop a major drug importer. It shows the lengths the drug lord will go to in order to bring down the agents.

Here is the unofficial blurb for Callye's Justice:

Justice Bernard, DEA Special Agent, and his team have spent years investigating and putting kinks in the chain of drugs entering and leaving St. Louis. He’s seen a lot in his line of work but he’s blindsided when the love of his life is kidnapped on the very day he proposed.

Callye Ann Simone's head is spinning. One minute she's walking along the Landing with the love of her life. The next, she's opening her eyes in a large, dark room and tied up tighter than a Christmas goose. Maybe if she can convince them she means nothing to him she’ll buy Justice enough time to come up with a plan.

Justice awakens to find his fiancée gone, taken literally from his arms. Now, he must find her at any cost, because her kidnappers are the very men Justice has shaken down for drug trafficking--and they want revenge.

Can Justice save Callye from the men who want to destroy him?

Cool huh? I so loved writing this book! I mean honestly a man with a badge (or in a uniform or BOTH!) is so HOT!!! I also made a video "trailer" for the book. Hop on over to my website, and check it out!

Anyway. While I'm on a roll I'm going to share the information on the next book in the series.

Betraying Chase:

Chase Willet is a DEA agent working from St. Louis office and he is in the process of destroying the drug business of a high dealing drug lord, Rivera. They’ve already put a large chunk in the import train, but it’s not enough. They’ve got to take out Rivera to stop the line.

Brandy Montgomery is a red head that swept Chase off his feet. She’s sexy, smart and has a secret. Brandy is a hired gun. Rivera hired her to take out Chase. She’s spending he time softening him up so that he won’t be prepared for the kill.

The problem with Brandy’s plan is that the more time she spends with Chase, the more she falls for him. How can she do her job if she’s in love with the man? When Chase finds out what she’s really up to he feels completely betrayed. Brandy offers to help Chase take down Rivera. Can Chase trust her?

The third (and probably last book in the series) is titled Hunting Mickey. Here is what is in store for Mickey and his wife Terese:

Mickey Flannery and wife Terese have been married for close to five years and they’re finally taking time to enjoy the honeymoon they never had. They are headed to an island paradise off one of the Hawaiian Islands. It is a private island owned by Rivera’s son and he is looking for revenge on Mickey for helping take out his father

While on the island Mickey discovers they are cut off from the outside world. He must use his wits to save Terese and him from the man who had them join his hunting party…as the prey.

Can Mickey keep Terese and himself alive and find a way to escape?

I just has to give the shout out!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
