Thanks so much for having me. I will admit, the thought of my beloved books turning into movies makes me break out into a sweat. Let’s face it, books are almost always better than the movies, right? And how will my sexy characters that live in my head, ever be portrayed the correct way on the big screen? But I shall do my best to cast two of my favorite books.

As I sat here staring at my bookshelves, I knew I had to pick a romantic suspense book, with a military hero. I become weak around strong, daring military men. One of my favorite series is the Black Ops Inc series by Cindy Gerard and her first hero from Show No Mercy, Gabe Jones is just a smexy beast. He is a hard core warrior who meets a journalist by the name of Jenna McMillan in South America. To say they have a crazy adventure is an understatement.

So I need a man who is strong, a little on the wild side, and gruff. How about this guy?

Look, Hugh Jackman is already sweaty from being in the South American jungles!! Now he needs to be paired with a stubborn, strong, inquisitive female. Oh, who is also gorgeous with “riotous red hair.” I think Christina Hendricks might do the job just fine.

Show No Mercy is a really fun, kind of over the top romantic suspense that works so well. You meet the entire Black Ops Team, and they each get their own book in this series. I really enjoyed each one.

Who is the first man that comes to mind when you think hard core military? And red-haired beauty would you cast for Jenna? Leave a comment to win a copy of Show No Mercy. Open to all.

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Length: 384 pages
Publisher: Pocket Books (September 23,2008)

The sultry heat . . .
Only two things can compel journalist Jenna McMillan back to Buenos Aires after terrorists held her captive there just months before: a rare interview with a shadowy billionaire and the memory of the dark and dangerous man who saved her. . . .

Hides the deadliest threats . . .
Bad guys, bombs, and bullets are Gabriel Jones’s way of life. But he’ll never forget the brash redhead he rescued not so long ago . . . or the passionate kiss they shared before he sent her packing.

And exposes the deepest desires. . . .
Now, forced together by a bombing at the National Congress, Jenna and Gabe confront the urgent longings that simmer between them. But this surprise meeting is no coincidence. A ruthless enemy stalks them with deadly precision. The question is . . . if they make it out alive, will Gabe turn his back on Jenna . . . again?
