LOOK AGAIN, A Novella 
Echo Platoon series begins with a prequel
Don't miss this prequel to my upcoming Echo Platoon series. This heartwarming and suspensful story introduces a new lineup of hunky heroes. 
Tyler Rexall never considered being anything besides a Navy SEAL. But a mission-gone-wrong has ended his career in the Teams, leaving Tyler handicapped, his self-identity obliterated. He has no idea that the young woman showing up on his doorstep with a dog holds his future in the palm of her hand. 
Katie Crowley's lifelong crush on the formidable "T-Rex" hasn't waned one iota in the last decade. Seeing him beaten down and disabled arouses her determination to help him, even as she's being terrorized by a desperate man who's getting bolder every day. 
Can Katie convince a proud man like Tyler to accept that a service dog can change his life? Unfortunately, she may not get the chance to heal him as her heart demands, not when her stalker returns for a final encounter.

DANGER CLOSE--Coming in August! 
Check out the cover of my August release, the first full-sized novel in my Echo Platoon Series. (Pre-orders may be available in late July at some e-retailers, but probably not at Amazon). DANGER CLOSE will be available in both digital and paperback formats!
Navy SEAL Sam Sasseville has better things to do than to rescue the daughter of an oil tycoon from trouble of her own making. In Sam's opinion, the privileged environmentalist is going to end up dead or worse if she continues venturing into dangerous places like Matamoros, Mexico, or the wilds of Paraguay, where she ends up next.  
Madison Scott has an agenda a mile long and it all stems from following the aspirations of her long-dead, activist mother. If that blasted Navy SEAL, not to mention her own politically connected father, would simply leave her alone, she could get her job done.
However, when extremists threaten Maddy, all bets are off. Suddenly, she and Sam share the same goal of keeping her alive. While Sam struggles with his escalating feelings for a woman he doesn't want to love, Maddy risks her life again to finish the work her mother started. Between their starkly different backgrounds and their fervent commitment to their careers, passion may be the only force capable of teaching these lovers' hearts to yield.

Speaking of The Beautiful Ashes, I received two quotes from authors whose books I love, so I was doubly flattered and delighted:   

"Jeaniene Frost brings her signature wit, sizzle and extraordinary imagination to this epic new series. I was addicted from page one." #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout   

"Jeaniene Frost is blessed with a creative soul." #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon   

That's for now. Enjoy and see some of you this week, either online or in person :).

News From Susan Mallery

Susan Mallery New York Times bestselling author. Read laugh love

Dear Reader,

UNTIL WE TOUCH, a Fool’s Gold romance, is available today in paperback, ebook, and audio! I know a lot of readers like to wait until the entire trilogy is available before reading, so if that’s you, today’s the day to start reading WHEN WE MET, BEFORE WE KISS, and UNTIL WE TOUCH. You are in for some fun!!!!
UNTIL WE TOUCH is my homage to the classic boss/secretary romance—with a twist. Larissa Owens is Jack McGarry’s personal assistant, but she’s also his massage therapist. He’s a former professional quarterback who is a partner in Score, a PR firm in Fool’s Gold. They’ve known each other for a few years now, and Larissa has had her hands all over his muscular body. (How’s that for a dream job?) But when Larissa’s mom tells Jack that Larissa is in love with him, everything changes in that instant.
Jack had no idea that Larissa had feelings for him. Larissa had no idea that she had feelings for him. She’s mortified that her mother would say such a thing! But… maybe her mom saw something that she missed? All Larissa knows now is that touching Jack has suddenly become a lot harder, and all Jack knows is that being touched by Larissa is making him a lot—well, you get where I’m going.
Larissa and Jack are going to win your hearts. She’s a kind-hearted soul who wants to rescue the world. Jack wants to keep the world at bay. Larissa has been his buffer, but now things are about to get all too real.
