Bloggers: Please check out the excellent previews and spread the word.
There's something wonderful about the lazy days of summer. Sunny days and longer nights can inspire the urge to kick back, relax, and enjoy every moment. Why not unwind with a great book and sneak in a bit of bliss?
When writing as Skylin O'Thomas, I tend to focus on contemporary romance, sometimes filled with little relationship moments, but also some adventure. Weaving in tension with suspense or adding humor to a steamy situation is so much fun. Giving a couple their happily ever after can't be beat.
One of my first releases, Down in Mexico, features a couple who finally reconnect after five years apart. As the first couple in the series, South of the Border, Lars and Kiernan have a steamy reunion, but there's a lot going on under the surface. An element of danger sneaks its way into Kiernan's hard won new life.
Lars isn't completely honest and Kiernan is less than thrilled when she finds out. But she's a trooper and deals with her situation.

Series Tagline: Mix a little danger with hot romance.
Kier picked up her glass, sipped the wine, contemplating.
"I learned to shoot. Small arms for the most part, but I know how to sight and fire a rifle." Her hand twirled the glass and her gaze turned hard. "It may be overkill, but I keep a handgun in the house, my shop, the car. I have two on my boat along with a rifle." She raised her eyes to his. "I didn't plan to make it easy for them to kill me."
She wouldn't. Even without the small arsenal, she'd have put up a hell of a fight before going down. It was in her nature to battle back.
Lars reached across the table and laced his fingers with her free hand. "You were smart, Kier. You had no way of knowing what would happen after you left."
She shrugged a shoulder. "There have been several times over the last five years that I've felt like something was off. Not quite right." She squeezed his hand. "It'll take some getting used to… this being safe thing."
Shit. He had to come clean. Now.
He had a feeling it wouldn't be pretty.
"Uh, Kier, about that." He took a deep breath and just spit it out. "You may not be that far off base thinking something's not quite kosher."
Her brow knit with confusion. "But I thought you said—"
"I did. I lied."
Her mouth opened, then snapped shut. So many emotions crossed her face he couldn't keep up with them.
She got up and paced the kitchen. "What exactly did you lie about?"
