I'm so excited to share with you my newest Christmas release and a backlist Christmas release. I've written eight Christmas novels and each one is special to me. I love sharing Christmas with readers through my stories. 
I hadn't realized until recently that these two books have something in common. 

The heroine is a sheriff's deputy. 

A few years ago I attended a citizen's academy class through my local county sheriff's department. It was fascinating and informative. Most of the deputies we heard from were male, but we did meet one female deputy who left an impression. She was an inspiration to me and shaped how I view women in law enforcement. 

In both Christmas Protection Detail and Identity Unknown, I wanted to reflect the strength of character and the capabilities of my female deputy, while also, highlighting the fact she was a beautiful woman inside and out, who deserved a happily ever after. 
When writing a romantic suspense story, it's a fine balance  between keeping the romance at the forefront while the heroine and hero are dodging bullets and bad guys. 

In the opening of Christmas Protection Detail, Deputy Kaitlyn Lanz and Nick Delaney each provide a special ornament for the community Christmas tree. I loved writing this scene because it really sets up the crux of the romantic conflict that plays throughout the story as Kaitlyn and Nick work together to uncover the mystery of who killed a single mother and is now after the orphaned baby. 

In Identity Unknown, the romantic conflict comes a bit later in the story as Deputy Audrey Martin works to protect a man with no memory of who he is or why someone wants him dead. Audrey must keep a wall up because this handsome man may very well be on the wrong side of the law. Canadian Border Services officer Nathanial Longhorn must protect the pretty deputy from the bad guys, and possibly from himself, because he can't remember what happened to him or why he's become a target. 

I really love writing strong female characters who take on the world with courage and aplomb. I hope you'll enjoy getting to know these two strong and brave women, and the men who love them. 

Ready to play? Here's my question:

In Identity Unknown, what is the name of the beach where our hero is found?

You can find the answer in the preview of Identity Unknown. When you have the answer, fill out this form, and head to the next author in the scavenger hunt:  Dawn M. Turner
