Just finished up listening to the audio version of SEAL FOR HER PROTECTION and approved it! Rhiannon Angell is the narrator, and she did a fantastic job with it! I think you guys are really going to love it!
I'll post the link to Amazon, Audible, and iTunes when it goes live! :) *hugs* Paige
It's release day for HER TRUE MATCH, the newest book in my X-OPS Series, and I couldn't be more excited! This is Dreya and Braden's story, the elusive feline shifter/cat burglar the only cop who can catch her. To say anymore would be giving you spoliers, but I can tell you that this book changes everything!
FORCED TOGETHER... When feline shifter Dreya Clark is escorted from the police interrogation by two secret agents, she thinks she's dodged a bullet. That sexy detective Braden Hayes caught her stealing red-handed. When she finds out what she has to do to stay out of jail, suddenly she's missing the hot cop with the piercing gaze. She's being recruited for her shifter abilities by the Department of Covert Operations. WILL DANGER RIP THEM APART? Braden has been chasing the smart-mouthed cat burglar for years. But when Dreya's taken away, he knows their game of cat and mouse has turned deadly-serious. There's no way he'll let her go off alone. Fur flies and temperatures flare as Braden realizes Dreya is much more than she appears. Thrown together on a dangerous covert mission, this unlikely pair will have to rely on each other to make it out alive.

I’m so excited to have you on my blog today! When my editor sent me the cover for HER TRUE MATCH, I was absolutely thrilled. I couldn't have asked them to pick a better model for the cop hero, Braden Hayes! -Thanks for the opportunity to bring Braden to life!
Do the photographer (David Wagner) or publisher (Sourcebooks) tell you anything about the book you’re posingfor? Like what type of hero you’re playing? Do they talk about your character’s “motivation?” -Before every shoot we go over all the info that we have about the character and story. We do our best to build a scenario or scene to act out to try and tell a story within a single photo. I make choices as an actor about the characters motivation and try to give several option for the publisher and of course the author to choose from.
Can you walk me through the photo shoot? How many photos did the photographer take? How long did it take? Inquiring minds want to know! -We shoot for roughly an hour going over several looks and wardrobe options. This one ended up being shirtless with a pistol and turned out fabulous! We take about a thousand pictures looking for that one perfect shot.
Wow! Have you ever worked with the female model playing the kick-butt heroine, feline shifter Dreya Clark to your hero before the cover shoot for HER TRUE MATCH? Feel free to give her a shout out here if you want! - This was the first project I had the pleasure of working with the gorgeous model. I would happily back her up on any cover:) I love a strong female and am excited to see how kick-butt she is in the book.
Well, if you love a strong female, you'll definitely love her when you read the book. She kicks some serious butt! Did you see the cover before I showed it to you? What did you think of the finished version? -Every project that I do I track the progress of. I originally saw the cover on Amazon and was very pleased with the way it turned out. I have been on several covers as law enforcement/bodyguard, but this was the first time I shared a cover with a strong female and that made me happy to see.
Yes, I love that about my covers, too! Have you done a lot of romance book covers? I have done quite a few and they are always a blast! I have a shelf full of them and look forward to continue to build my collection. I have done everything from classics like couple shoots and cowboy to Viking, rock star, and athletes.
That's fantastic! What other kind of modeling do you do? I do a lot of fitness modeling as well as catalogue and commercial print work. Everything out there besides high fashion. LOL. I'm more of a classic type.
I see that you’re also a stunt performer as well as an actor. I’ve checked out your IMDB page, and you’re in quite a few TV shows! Can you tell me a little about that? -Doing my own stunts are something i have always enjoyed as an actor. I hope to be an action star one day so I train in martial arts and stage fighting to prepare me for that.
And you were a bass player in a band, too? Music was my first love. I played music for my teens and early 20s. In St. Louis my band "Disober" was played on the local radio station and we were the opening act for several bands I am a fan of.
Very cool! I also saw on your IMDB page that you were in the Marine Corps. How many years were you in the Marines and where were you stationed? Being a real-life military veteran makes you even more perfect to be on the cover of a military/romantic suspense like HER TRUE MATCH. - I spent 3 years in the Marine Corps. I did boot camp in San Diego and was stationed in Camp Pendleton, CA and Camp Lejeune, NC. That's where I fell in love with SoCal and decided to move here full time. It definitely helps me bring the military type characters to life.
I completely agree! Some of the heroes and heroines in my X-Ops Series are shifters. They don’t actually turn into animals, but instead have certain traits. For example, as a feline shifter, Dreya Clark, the heroine of HER TRUE MATCH, can see better at night, has a keen sense of smell, has claws and fangs that come out when sheneeds them, runs as fast as a cheetah, and is as agile as a cat. If you could be a shifter in the X-OPS world, what kind of shifter would you want to be, and why? -I would like to be a gorilla. They have incredible strength and agility and nobody would mess with a gorilla LOL!
Okay, I didn't see that coming! You know, you've just give me an idea! On your IMDB page, it says you’re a marathon runner. My hubby and I are as well! Our favorite are the marathons they do at Disney World. Which marathons have you run? -I have run several all over the country. My favorite was Niagara Falls which is the Kevin Thomsen international marathon and crosses the border into Canada. The run began in Buffalo, NY and ended at the horse shoe of the falls. It was gorgeous.
I bet! What’s your workout routine like? - I work out everyday and change it up constantly. I run, hike, and play volleyball outdoors. I cross train, do home workouts, and classic weight training to keep it interesting.
I'm a fan of working out every day, too. What are you up to now and where can people find you on the net? -I have completed several films and TV shows over the last few years that are coming out soon. The TV show "The Catch" is on ABC and I will have an upcoming costar role. "Palisades Justice" is a fun cop show I am a co lead on and should be available on Amazon soon. I also have several films coming out soon including "Ugly Sweater Party", "Death House", and "Maternal Instincts". Please check out my FB page and follow me on IG to find out more.

Curious about what a Day in the Life of Feline Shifter/Cat Burglar Dreya Clark from HER TRUE MATCH is like! From brushing her fangs to tangling with hunky robbery detective Braden Hayes, she dishes on everything! :)
It's Release Day for TEXAS SEAL, the newest book in my SEALs of CORONADO SERIES!
THAT WAS THEN—THIS IS NOW.
When a woman from his past shows up on his doorstep, Navy SEAL Trent Wagner isn’t sure what to expect. The little sister of his best friend back in high school, Lyla Torres is all grown up now and even more beautiful than he remembered. He’d always had a thing for her back then, but that damn bro code meant she was off limits. Before Trent can act on the sparks that still exist between him and Lyla, he’s going to have to use his SEAL training to help find her brother. His old friend has messed up his life pretty good since high school, getting into drugs and doing some time in jail, and now he’s missing. Trent knows it’s not a good idea to get involved in someone else’s problems, especially when they could end up getting both him and Lyla thrown into prison—or killed. But Trent has never been able to say no to a beautiful woman, especially one he’s had a crush on since high school.
What better book boyfriend to spend Valentine’s Day with than a hunky, heroic Navy SEAL?
As promised, a sneak peek at TEXAS SEAL, releasing tomorrow! :)
“So, what are your plans now that we know Marco is safe? Well, alive, at least,” she asked. “Will you be heading back to San Diego in the morning?” A smile slowly spread across his face. “You that eager to get rid of me? What, do I snore or something?” She laughed. “No. I just figured since there wasn’t anything keeping you here, you’d want to head home.” His gaze swirled with sudden heat, making her stomach do that silly quivering thing again. “I wouldn’t say there’s nothing keeping me here. Besides, I have two weeks’ worth of leave to burn so it’s not like I have to rush back.” Lyla tried to play it cool, though, with the way he was looking at her, she couldn’t keep her heart from beating a little bit faster. “Yeah, no need to rush back, I guess. If you have to take leave anyway. You could spend some time with your family since you’re here. Maybe take in a San Antonio Missions baseball game.” “Or I could just hang out with you, making up for lost time,” he murmured, sending her heart rate skyrocketing. Trent leaned in a little closer as he spoke, looking way hotter than any man had a right to. She wet her lips. “Yeah, you could do that, too,” she said softly. Lyla didn’t expect this thing between them—whatever it was—to go anywhere. She couldn’t deny she was very attracted to Trent, and she got the idea he was into her, too. If he ended up staying here for two weeks while on leave, she had no doubt it would be fun, with a good portion of that time likely spent wearing very little or no clothing. But it wouldn’t go beyond that. She wasn’t the kind of woman who could do the long-distance relationship thing. “Unless…” Trent added, leaning in a little more. “Unless…what?” she prompted. Would it be too forward of her to grab him by the shirt and yanked him in for a kiss? Probably. Not that she’d ever do it anyway. She didn’t have the nerve to pull something like that off. The thought was nice, though. “Unless you really need your futon back,” he finished, moving another inch closer but still keeping his distance. Like he was waiting for her to make a move. “No,” she said, licking her lips. “My futon is yours as long as you’d like to use it. Unless…” Now it was his turn to be taken by surprise, something Lyla enjoyed seeing more than she would have imagined. “Unless…what?” he asked, a playful smile tugging at his lips as he moved closer still. “Unless you can think of someplace else you’d like to sleep,” she told him, leaning in this time, hoping he’d take the hint. He did, his lips so close to hers she could feel his warm breath on her face. “I can definitely think of someplace else I’d like to sleep.” Lyla was about to ask him to elaborate, but his mouth came down on hers... https://www.books2read.com/TexasSEAL *hugs* Paige
