THEIR LINE OF DRIFT – SNIPER TEAM
Can he earn a second chance, or will their love be
left to drift away...
The line of drift is the pathway of least resistance
between two points, the place where you are and the destination you long to be.
A sniper will follow that path when looking for his target. When Devon Roberts
left Redwood Falls eight years ago, he knew his line of drift would lead him
back. He may have spent those years helping to rid the world of evil, but the
only destination he longed for was Finn McGregor.
Finn knew all about evil. He lived with it every day.
Devon returns hell bent on getting him back and discovers that Finn’s been
fighting his own personal war at home. Can Devon keep Finn safe, and convince
him that their love is worth a second chance? Or will they allow their forever
love to drift away?
all of his training and everything he should have done next to ensure the
safety of his team, Devon ran forward, dropping to his knees beside the prone
figure. “Oh, shit, Finn.” There was no missing the fear in his voice. With
hands that shook, he checked for a pulse and breathed a sigh of relief at the
rhythmic thumps he felt against his fingers.
As gently as
he could, Devon rolled Finn onto his back, and his breath caught at the sight
of swelling and bruising around his left eye. “Jesus Christ, Finn, what the
hell happened?” Devon ran his hands over his skull, searching for any
contusions or swelling that could indicate a head injury or concussion. He
breathed a sigh of relief when he found nothing.
and his eyes fluttered open, and not for the first time, Devon found himself
drowning in his beautiful green eyes and wondering why in the hell Finn was in
the house. “Dev?” Finn asked in a weak voice. An ache settled in his chest. He
had heard that voice in his dreams on so many nights, but hearing it now, weak
with pain rather than passion, just about killed him.
it’s me,” Dev answered as he swept a lock of Finn’s dark hair from his
forehead. “Where else does it hurt, baby? I want to get you up onto the bed so
Sam can get a look, but I don’t want to hurt you.” A flash of hurt that Devon
knew had nothing to do with his injuries flickered in Finn’s eyes before his
anger apparently rose to mask it.
of your concern where the pain is, and I sure as hell am not your baby,” Finn
said, sneering the last word and Devon nodded. He understood Finn’s anger and
accepted it to a point.
headed out to your truck to grab his med kit,” Marcel said from the door. “You
need any help getting Finn up onto the bed?”
in earnest at Finn whose eyes narrowed, attempting to read his mood. “No,
Marcel, I do not need any help getting Finn into bed. I can do that all on my
own,” he said with a bit of humor.
over the guys’ laughter in the background. “Get the hell away from me, Devon
Roberts, I can make it to the bed myself.” Finn gritted his teeth and rolled to
his side, a groan of pain caused any humor on Dev’s part to evaporate.
Frowning, Devon swiftly swept Finn up and into his arms, wincing at his quick
inhalation of breath.
swiftly to the bed, waiting while Marcel removed the dust cloth, then laid Finn
down on the quilt, absently noting that it was the same damn one he had used
all those years ago. “Stop it!” Devon ordered as Finn started to struggle to
stand. “Stay there, Finn, and let Sam have a look at you.” Sam put his med kit
on the bed and opened it, but Finn kept trying to stand. Devon reached out a
hand and gently gripped his chin, tilting Finn’s face up so that their gazes
“I mean it,
Finn. Stop trying to move around, and let Sam have a look at you. Once we have
you all squared away, you are going to tell me what the fuck happened.” A red
hue rose up Finn’s face and his gaze slid away, but Devon gently turned his
face so Finn had no choice but to look at him once more. “You are going to tell
me who did this to you, Finn. I know what being beaten looks like, and you will
tell me who turned their fists on you.”
“What do you
care, Dev?” Finn’s expression turned bleak and he kept his voice low, obviously
uncomfortable with the attention, and Devon’s heart ached even more. “You’ve
had eight years to pick up the phone and see how I was doing. Now, last time I
checked my cell phone, I hadn’t missed any calls so I figure you didn’t really
give a shit. So why bother now?”
Q: Every book is special to an
author. What is it about this book that
makes it special for you?
A: This is my first MM. I have loved this genre from the first time I
read Stormy Glenn, Sam Crescent and Cree Storm.
There is something about the powerful expressions and imagery you can
create with the scenes are between two male characters, especially the hot
Sometimes things happen when you are writing a series that wasn’t
expected at all. Have you had this
happen to you?
A: Heaps! I am not a planner. I am a write-by-the-set-of-your-panties kinda
girl. There have been moments where I
will finish up a scene and be like WTF?
I did not see that coming! This
whole series started with an image I found that I simply couldn’t let go of.
Why do you always include a danger element to your books?
A. I write what I love to
read. I love books that take you on a
journey, but where the characters face a challenge that adds an element of
urgency to them and to the book. As a
reader, there is nothing I like more than getting that goose bump, hair rising
on the back of my neck feeling as I join the characters within the book I am
reading on the journey to solve their mystery.
I want to give that to my readers.
What are you working on at the moment?
A. I have book eight of the Grey
River series over half way, as well as book two in the Sniper Team Bravo
series. There is also a new Shifter Ménage
series coming soon and a standalone MM as well.
Soooo many stories to tell, so little time!
Do you have anything to say to your current readers or to those that
haven’t yet read you work?
A. If you have read any of my
books, thank you so very much! It blows
my mind that someone has actually read something that I wrote, but gosh I hope
you enjoyed it! Did you? Please let me know, I find I suffer from a
slight case of needy-nelly with my writing.
If you haven’t read my book, but you love erotic romance stories between
strong men and an independent woman, where the path to their happily ever after
can be a bumpy one, but there is always a happily ever after, and their love
and laugher is real on every page, then you’ll find my books right up your
