This post is dedicated to…

…all of you reading it, of course!

With the volume of new releases flying around International Heat these days I was thinking about one of the best things about writing a book:  the dedication!

A few of my dedications have been silly, like the time I wondered how long it would take my husband to notice Picture Perfect was dedicated to him.  Answer:  More than a year before he mentioned it, though he later claimed to have read it and just not told me because he thought my dedication sucked.

Sometimes they’re serious like when I dedicated Dream Machine to the people who don’t know I write but who would be proud if they did (Hi mom!).  Or Phoenix Incantation, which was dedicated to Mari Carr because she’s a great friend and has helped me immensely in my writing career.  Then there are future dedications in books like Kate’s Crew that you’re just going to have to wait to read for yourself!

So… who is my latest release dedicated to you ask?

Night is Darkest will hit e-shelves today (11/24/09) with the following dedication:   For all the members of the Samhain reader café yahoo group. I enjoy the time we spend chatting about our favorite books and all the wonderful feedback you’ve given me. Special thanks to the moderators, both past and present, for keeping the party going!

In their honor, you might notice a few cameos by prominent members of the group.  It was so much fun to include them in the story.  I hope they don’t kill me for the things they say (Yes, I’m looking at you Valerie Tibbs).

If you want to check it out for yourself.  Here’s all the info on the new release!

Some secrets refuse to stay hidden.

Lacey Daughtry’s perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother’s murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother’s best friends and fellow officers for protection…and comfort.

Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she’s dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she’s harbored for so long.

But the partners are holding out on Lacey. Determined to suppress the most extreme facets of their lust, they agree to settle for sharing the woman they crave while concealing their desire for each other. Until Lacey cracks their resolve, unleashing a torrent of emotions that threatens to distract them when they can least afford it.

Their blossoming relationship is complicated by secrets. And the only way to evade the killer threatening their lives is to bare their souls in the darkest hours of the night. Or everything will come crashing down, just before the dawn.

Warning: After reading this book you’ll never look at a pair of hot cops, a cemetery or a can of Spaghetti-O’s the same way again.
