Back in December, HER CAPTAIN, one of my favorite stories and possibly one my best books, was released by Fated Desires Publishing.
HER CAPTAIN was part of FD's multi-authored "Tempting Signs" series. FD's plan was to release 12 books, one a month, each corresponding to a particular sign.
HER CAPTAIN featured a Capricorn hero, who was a former Navy SEAL, struggling to adjust to civilian life. The book was in the midst of promo and a blog tour when FD authors got word that FD was shutting down.
After only a few short weeks out in the wild, HER CAPTAIN was gone from e-shelves everywhere.
FD was good about giving rights back to their authors immediately,though.
And, luckily, one of my favorite publishers, Decadent Publishing (thank you Valerie Mann and Kate Richards), agreed to give HER CAPTAIN a new home. And with a little light editing and a brand new gorgeous cover (thank you Valerie Tibbs!), HER CAPTAIN sails again.
Want a sneak peek?
Slate Claybourne, a sniper and former Navy SEAL, returns to his bucolic hometown on Pieberry Island, desperate for the mundane, everyday routines he once wanted to escape.
A soul-dead man unable to be around people, his body still a lethal weapon when his night terrors wake him from sleep, Slate’s failed to keep the promise he made to the commander who died in his arms: to look after the older man’s baby girl.
But animated Holly Harper is not the pigtailed tot Slate expected her to be. She shocks him to the core when she lands on the island to take over the decrepit Pieberry House, determined to turn it into an inn for summer tourists…and even more determined to yank Slate back into the land of the living.
First she crashes into him at the island’s Winter Festival, dumping a towering stack of pies at his feet, then she drags him off to a fortune teller against his better judgment.
He's a Capricorn. She's an Aries. Except for the sizzling attraction smoldering between them, they’re incompatible in every way.
But when a furious December nor’easter traps Slate and Holly together at Pieberry House, will love be in the signs?
Coming back soon!
