D. What triggered this specific story?
Actually, my publisher wanted a nanny/cop story, and I volunteered to write it! I live in SoCal and was able to add reality to the drug trafficking book because of my proximity to the border. Plus, I wanted to write a beach book based on places I’ve been around here. Lastly, my hero is based off Chris Pratt. Talk about fun writing! **fans face**
DEA agent Sawyer Hayes came to California in search of a drug cartel leader who slipped through his fingers in El Paso. The link to finding him is Kate Munroe, a nanny for one of his henchmen. The problem? He didn’t expect to be so drawn to a possible suspect. How is he supposed to do his job when his growing feelings for her are clouding his judgment?
Interior designer Kate Munroe’s life is a train wreck. Her parents’ deaths left her with their mounds of debt, she can’t get a job designing even a cubicle, and she’s bunking in her best friend’s spare bedroom. To make ends meet, she’s a nanny to a lonely little boy whose rich father works all the time. Romance is not on her radar. But her hot new neighbor could change her mind, with his broad shoulders and Southern charm. Too bad his secrets could destroy her.DEA agent Sawyer Hayes came to California in search of a drug cartel leader who slipped through his fingers in El Paso.
