I have a new release this week, on Wednesday 18th November to be precise. I’ve just received the cover for Soldier of Fortune (http://www.shelleymunro.com/books/soldier-of-fortune/).

The foreground shows my hero and heroine in Fiji and there’s a soldier in the background, which also fits the story. Both my hero and heroine are soldiers. I like my new cover, affectionately dubbed “the Ninja Turtle cover” by hubby and myself because you can’t see my soldier’s face and the armor makes him look like a Ninja turtle.

Here’s the blurb:

Joanna “Mac” McGregor loves her father, and she’ll do anything to keep him safe after Alzheimer’s starts to steal his mind. That takes money, and Mac uses her only skills—those of soldiering—when she takes up a security contract in Iraq. She doesn’t have time for men, her last vacation fling in Fiji relegated as one perfect moment to hold close during the grim reality of war.

Soldier Louie Lithgow is tired of fighting, the constant danger, and has decided this is his last contract. He wants to retire, sink his savings into a place on the beach, and find the sexy Joanna, his holiday lover.

Mac’s arrival in Iraq causes consternation. They’ve both been economical with the truth, but the attraction sizzling between them flares hot and bright. They embark on a clandestine affair—professional and confident during their high-danger day, passionate with the release of emotional stress during their torrid nights. One thing is clear—they have different goals and the future is both murky and dangerous. If they survive their contracts.

Note: Readers first met Louie in Summer in the City of Sails (http://www.shelleymunro.com/books/summer-in-the-city-of-sails/).


What do you think of my cover?

Congrats on your release, Shelley! I love soldier heroes, but you've got a bonus with a soldier heroine. Love it!

Thanks! I really like my Ninja Turtle cover. The more I look at it, the more I like it. I'm doing an excerpt for my Snippet Saturday this week so I'll post it here as well.

Hollie - both books are total stand alones, but if you're like me, you'll enjoy reading about all the characters.

PS - the green condom scene is one of my favorites.

Hi Hollie,

I hope to write new stories for Summer's brothers and for Jake, Nikolai's other friend.

The trouble is that I'm working on a few series now. I have my Middlemarch one, House of the Cat is the first in a new series plus I have a new contemporary series at Samhain. the first one comes out in april 2010.

I need to write faster...or something!

I'm glad you enjoyed Summer's story. It's still one of my favorites.
