I’ve always been a plot-oriented writer–which can be good news or bad.  Fortunately, the idea for BEYOND DANGER, book #2 of my Texas Trilogy, came to me while I was working on book #1.

Beau Reese, co-owner of Texas American Enterprises, is black-haired, blue-eyed, and sexy as hell.  He was once a highly successful race car driver, sort of a Texas Paul Newman.  Beau loves fast cars and fast women.

He is also wanted for murder.

Private Detective, Cassidy Jones, is smart and beautiful and she’s no pushover.  Lucky for Beau, she’s also determined to prove his innocence.

When the idea came to me for the first book in the trilogy, BEYOND REASON, I knew I wanted to write multiple stories set around Lincoln Cain.  Since Linc owned a company that demanded a lot of his time, I figured he needed a partner to help while he was trying to protect the heroine, Carly Drake, from a dangerous drug lord.

As I began working on the second book, the beginning was easy.  Beau was in the wrong place at the wrong time, making him the prime suspect in his father’s murder.  The trick was to follow the clues that would lead him and Cassidy, a private detective, to the information that would prove Beau innocent of the crime.

Unfortunately, to do that, they ultimately needed to find the person who actually committed the murder.  Which meant they had to find out why someone wanted Beau’s father, a former Texas state senator, dead.

One of the best parts about writing a novel is finding the right pieces and parts of the puzzle then figuring out how they all go together.

It’s also one of the worst parts.

Nothing is worse than writer’s block, the curse of every author.  So far, determination and persistence have managed to get me through those times.

I like to write big stories, which means they’re stand alone novels, each with a very different plat.  But the heroes are always connected, the kind of men who are there for each other no matter how tough things get.  In BEYOND DANGER, Beau gets help from Linc and Linc’s brother, Joshua, the hero of BEYOND CONTROL.

I hope you enjoy BEYOND DANGER, and that you’ll watch for Josh Cain in BEYOND CONTROL, out in June.  If you haven’t read Linc and Carly’s story, BEYOND REASON, I hope you’ll give it a try.

Till next time, all best and happy reading.  Kat


Beyond Danger

Beyond Danger is Beau’s story.  Mega-rich, black-haired, and blue-eyed, Beau is gorgeous to look at, and flashy.  He was an amateur race car driver, sort of a Texas Paul Newman, before he left the racing circuit.  Beau loves fast cars and fast women.

He is also wanted for murder.

That’s where private investigator, Cassidy Jones, comes in.  She’s smart and she’s no pushover, exactly the woman for Beau.  Best of all, she’s determined to prove his innocence.

Giving away INTO THE FURY to one person who comments on Kat’s post.  Hard copy, Kindle or Nook. US Only.

A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a P.I.–the men of Brodie Operations Security Service, Inc. are down for the job. . .

Sinners, whores, and sluts beware–your time is at hand: a faceless menace is threatening lingerie models on a cross country tour, and Ethan Brodie is there to defend and protect.

Ethan’s learned the hard way that beauty is no substitute for character. So even though Valentine Hart is one of the most breathtaking women he’s ever seen, he’s keeping his hands off and his eyes open. Or that’s what he tells himself.

Then one of the models is murdered, and the closer Ethan gets to the answers, the closer he finds himself to Valentine–and the hotter the pressure feels. There’s more to Val–more to the other girls–than he could have guessed. But one is keeping a secret that could kill them all.
