I just received the re-vamped cover for BRAVE THE HEAT and I love it! My publisher is awesome because when they decided to go in a different direction with the cover for book 2 in The McGuire Brothers (Trouble Walks In), they agreed to revamp the cover of book 1 as well. I’m pretty lucky. There aren’t a lot of publishers out there that would be willing to invest in something like this.

So what do you think?! If you enjoy my paranormal romances, I really think you’d love this series! “Brave the Heat” is for you if you like:

BraveTheHeat_FinalREDO* A scorching hot fire fighter struggling with his dark past.
* A tough-as-nails heroine determined to protect her family.
* A small town ready to ignite.
* And a second chance at love that may just save them all.

Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire’s feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn’t prevent.
Jordan’s life has not exactly worked out the way she expected. A divorced mother of two with a failed acting career, Jordan’s biggest concern about coming back to Old Brookfield was seeing her first love. But when a series of suspicious fires breaks out, Jordan and Gavin realize that dealing with the sparks between them may be the least dangerous of their problems.
