Easton's Claim: Final Book of the Colebrook Siblings Trilogy

Dear reader,

I'm thrilled to announce that book three of the Colebrook Siblings Trilogyreleases today. Hard to believe we're already at the last book, but I hope I've saved the best for last. The chemistry between Piper and Easton is scorching. 
ISBN: 978-1-928044-18-5
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Format: ebook & print
Length: short novel (60,000 words)
She needs a fresh start somewhere else.
Piper Greenlee is desperate to get out of Sugar Hollow. After her ex-husband’s notorious scandal and their subsequent divorce, her life and reputation are in tatters. Not to mention the disturbing feelings she’s started to have for a longtime friend recently. She’s ready to leave all that behind, start over somewhere far away and reinvent herself.
But the past isn’t done with her yet. When it lands on her doorstep this time, the consequences could prove fatal. She has no choice but to turn to the one man in town she knows can protect her…the man she’s not ready to face her true feelings for.
He’ll fight to convince her she’s already home.
DEA FAST agent Easton Colebrook has loved Piper for years and been forced to stay silent. It killed him to stand back and watch her marry the wrong man, but now that her divorce has been finalized and she’s had time to heal, he’s making his move. The problem is, she’s determined to see him only as a friend, and worse—Wyatt’s little brother.
When he arrives home after another rotation in Afghanistan, Easton is ready to put his plan into action. Then he learns that Piper is planning to move halfway across the country, forcing him to act immediately. Before he can tell her how he feels, her ex drags her into a potentially lethal situation. Easton steps in, vowing to protect her at all costs. But in order to finally claim the woman who’s owned his heart for as long as he can remember, he and Piper will have to outsmart a deadly enemy hell bent on exacting his revenge.
I've recently completed my Bagram Special Ops novella (Never Surrender), but it won't release until March. I can't wait for you guys to read it! Unlike most of my books, there are a lot of lighthearted moments in this one that balance out all the angst and action. Not surprising since both Ryan and Ace's grandma are center stage. I just love her, she's such a hoot to write about.

Right now I'm wrapping up edits for my Titanium Security Christmas novella (Blindsided, due out in late November), and I've begun to plot out my upcoming DEA FAST Series. I've fleshed out the cast of characters somewhat, and if all goes well there will be 9-10 new books from this series. Yay! I'm starting with Charlie Colebrook and Special Agent Jamie Rodriquez, who you'll meet in Easton's Claim.

In non-writing news, hubby and I are heading down to Baton Rouge, Louisiana next month to attend Writer's SWAT Academy, put on by Liliana Hart and her awesome hubby, Scott Silverii. We get to learn all kinds of tactical stuff from former law enforcement and military peeps, and you can bet what I learn will appear in the pages of my upcoming books. I hate flying with the passion of a thousand burning suns, but this was just too great an opportunity to pass up, even for an aviaphobe like me :).

Last but not least, I'm finally on Instagram! If you're on it, look me up.

Happy fall and happy reading!

Kaylea :)

Colebrook Siblings Trilogy: Wyatt's Stand

Dear reader,

Hi there! It's me, PJ, Kaylea's best little buddy. I'm so excited to tell you that the book I star in (well, as "Grits", not myself) is out now!

This is the second book of the Colebrook Siblings Trilogy, and though I appear in all these books, this one's my favorite because I'm not only the star, I'm on the cover too :). See me there at the bottom of it? Isn't that cool??? I'm still so flattered. 

Mummy is keeping secrets from me. She hasn't told me what happens at the end of the book yet, but I'm sure I take down the bad guy, because I have a pretty ferocious growl when I want to scare off squirrels and birds in our yard. (I always sit next to her legs while she's writing her stories, but I can't read yet, so she has to explain to me what happens and this time she won't, so I'll have to wait and find out with you guys.)

Here's mummy to fill you in on all the details. We hope you enjoy this story!
Love, PJ 
*slurp slurp*

A wounded warrior in need of healing.
The cost of war was high for Wyatt Colebrook, scarring him inside and out. Since coming home to Sugar Hollow to figure out what his new normal looks like, he’s retreated into himself, just going through the motions of living. Since losing his lower leg and an eye, he doesn’t feel whole anymore, and every day he battles with the inner demons he brought back with him. The only things keeping him going are family, stubbornness, and the chance to buy the one property that will allow him to begin to heal again. When that dream is suddenly stolen from him, it leads to a confrontation with the new owner that will change his life forever.
A woman strong enough to win his heart.
After suffering a painful loss of her own, Austen Sloan left everything from her old life behind to start a new one in Sugar Hollow. When she finds the house of her dreams in a run-down Victorian in desperate need of love, the last thing she expects is to have a run-in with a disgruntled wounded combat veteran who soon steals her heart. But danger lurks in the shadows, stalking ever nearer. To hold on to Austen and the chance for a future together, Wyatt must make a stand against a deadly enemy. He’ll protect her with everything he has, or die trying.
Hey there, it's Kaylea. I had to let PJ do the intro because he was so darn excited, but now here's an update from me on what I've been working on lately.

I've already wrapped up the final book of the Colebrook Siblings TrilogyEaston's Claim (releasing in late September), and my Bagram novella set in Liliana Hart's MacKenzie Family world, Never Surrenderwhich will release next March.

Right now I'm plotting out a Christmas novella for the Titanium Security crew, and after I write that one I'll be diving into my new series about the DEA FAST guys. 

I've also got a box set featuring the first three books of the Hostage Rescue Team series on sale for 99 cents for a limited time. Buy links are HERE

Plenty of exciting action coming your way! I hope everyone had a good summer. My boys head back to school the day after Labor Day and I always love getting back into our routine. September is my favorite month here in Vancouver. It starts out sunny and warm, and then gets progressively cooler, bringing the gorgeous colors of changing leaves and the first fall rains. Yum.

Happy reading!

Kaylea & PJ
