Mary Calmes always has the ability to create admirable characters whom readers absolutely adore. Tracy Brandt and Cord Nolan are no exception.

Pairing two opposites is what Calmes does best. Tracy is the all around good guy who just happens to find himself caught up in a world of trouble. Readers first meet him running from a reigning fire of bullets. It seems as though someone is out to hurt him and it all connects to Tracy’s cheating ex. As more and more targets are revealed, putting others in danger, Cord is taking Tracy’s safety into his own hands.

Much like my favorites, Jory and Sam, Tracy and Cord exhibit a love/hate relationship. As Tracy’s brother’s partner and former manwhore, readers can expect entertaining sexual tension between the two. Infused in the story is Calmes’ trademark humor, which makes all her books absolutely fabulous and endearing.

If you’re a loyal fan of Mary Calmes, FLOODGATES will give you much to cheer about.

About Mary Calmes

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
