Welcome to Spring!

According to the calendar it’s officially spring. That’s something to celebrate, even if it still looks like winter in my part of the world. But the signs of spring are there.


The days are getting longer. After the short days and long dark nights of winter, having the sun shine longer each day makes me feel better and gives me a boost of energy.


The snow is melting. If we get another storm—and we often do in April and even May—the snow won’t be around that long. The flowers are hiding under the ground, just waiting for enough warmth and sunshine to burst into bloom.


I’m counting down the days until I can put away the scarf, gloves, headband, winter boots, and heavy coat and don a fleece and a pair of sneakers when I head outside. For me, the first real sign of spring is when I can wear my sneakers. It’s the little things…


And if you’re still stuck inside on those cold days, I hope you snuggle up and watch a movie, binge on Netflix (or another streaming service), or read a book. There’s so much to choose from. There’s something to be said for enjoying a cozy, chilly spring evening.



If you’ve read the Marks Mercenaries series, you might remember that Vaden el Gravaso, the hero from Salvaging Abby is from Gravas, a highly secretive world with advanced technology and a kickass military. Oh, and their assassins are the best in the known universe. They’re also all male. This time it’s impossible for a Gravasian assassin to infiltrate and rescue Ivar, a prince of Gravas. When a man can’t do the job, they send a woman who can.



Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.


Ivar’s Escape

Assassins of Gravas, Book 2


Ivar el Gravaso—a prince of Gravas—wakes in a prison cell with no idea how he got there or even who he is. If his captor can’t get answers from Ivar, his days are numbered. When a strange woman sneaks into the prison and promises to get him out, he’s suspicious. Is this nothing more than another trick by his captor or is she truly there to help?

Delphi is an assassin sent by the Gravasian government to infiltrate the space pirate stronghold of Tortuga in search of the missing prince. She finds a prisoner who is well-spoken, knowledgeable, and ready to fight, even though he has no idea who he is. He might be her target. It’s difficult to tell due to his ragged appearance. But no way can she leave him behind, no matter who he is.




One shot was all they’d have. If she failed, she’d have to leave Ivar to save herself.

And that she wouldn’t do.


Not only because she’d given her word—to the Gravasian king, her sister’s husband, and to Ivar himself. No, she couldn’t have Ivar’s death on her conscience.


He’d shown such composure under extreme pressure. He had no idea who he was, yet the core of the man shone through. Honor wasn’t just a word to him. He’d been concerned with her safety.


She’d held his hand.


Curling her fingers inward, she cursed the phantom heat from his touch. Straightening her palm, she rubbed it against her pants.


Get your head in the game and do this.
