It's been nearly a year since I wrapped up and published the last book in The MaCall Prophecy Trilogy, my initial indoctrination into the world of paranormal romance. I had read a number of books in the genre, mind you, and I absolutely love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. (The woman is brilliant. She managed to corner the market on combining historical fiction with the paranormal time travel concept. She is one I should have included in my trailblazer blog, except that I have too much respect for her as a writer to include her in an irritated rant.)
I mentioned in a previous post that I have temporarily stepped away from the historical trilogy I was working on, and my newest paranormal suspense/romance is well underway. I'm adoring my protagonist, a female detective who is hard and cold professionally and is obsessed with silk lingerie and romance books personally. And she also has a passionate relationship with the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman television series, an affair that is horrifyingly discovered by her love interest at a most inopportune time.
But her secret identity isn't limited to the undergarments she hides beneath her masculine uniform and bulletproof vest. She also is able to teleport, a skill she considers more of a risk than an asset. And given that someone is intent on trying to expose her and kill her, she may be right.
I am aiming to release the story of Detective Eva Sokolov before the end of the year. In the meantime, here is the gorgeous cover that Laura Gordon created for me. Tune in soon for an excerpt or two!
