Hi Dee, welcome back to Under the Covers and congratulations on the release of IMMINENT DANGER.
Thank you, Francesca! I always love the crowd at Under the Covers! You guys know how to make an author feel welcome!
Describe this latest release in three words.
Sexy. Suspenseful. Surprising.
What can you tell us about your new book in the Adrenaline Highs series, Imminent Danger?
Imminent Danger actually deals with two different couples. One couple is younger and experiencing first love and the other consists of two people a little older and lot more jaded. One of the things I loved about writing this book was the different ways the characters looked at love and falling in love. Past experiences will definitely color the way people go into a relationship… or avoid them as the case may be.
Imminent Danger is the fifth book in the series, when you started did you have the series all planned out, or do you do each book as the characters inspire you?
I take each book at a time. I knew once I wrote Living Dangerously that Blake and Abbey were destined to be together. I just had to figure out what they might face. And of course, it’s their biggest fears.
What has drawn you into writing in the Romantic Suspense genre…we suspect it may be all the men and their big…guns 🙂
I’ve always loved reading romantic suspense, so it seemed natural that I might try to write it. I remember early on loving to read suspense from Judith McNaught and Linda Howard. Then I discovered Suzanne Brockmann and that was a game changer. I do love the men and their big…guns! But it’s their big hearts that I love most!
What’s your favorite thing about the heroine, Abbey. And what about your favorite thing about the hero, Blake?
I love how Abbey recognizes that to live her life, she needs to change her life. She needs to trust, to come out of her shell and deal with obstacles head on instead of hiding. I adore Blake’s patience. He melted my heart every day when I sat down to write. He just always knows the right thing to say and I love how he beat down Abbey’s defenses until she discovered she no longer had to be afraid.
What was the hardest scene to write in this book?
Oh man… I had the hardest time writing the ambush scene. Poor Blake really suffers and I hated making him endure it. I was in a cold sweat writing those pages. (Which made Blake very happy, BTW, since he suffered so terribly. It was still hardly fair.)
Can you describe what your work space looks like.
I used to write in my office, but lately I settle on the living room sofa (and sometimes my bed depending on time). I had to switch rooms with my daughter (mainly because the corner room is so hot in summer and cold in the winter), and my office never got back to its former self. Instead of taking a couple of days to organize, I just moved (me and my laptop) out! But the living room sofa faces a nice bricked in fireplace and a huge picture window that looks out to the front of the house. If something happens within a 3 house radius, I’m one of the first to know!
What are 3 things you won’t leave home without?
Wallet. (This is cheating since it’s so big and has everything I need!) Phone. Lip balm.

For Abbey Washington, dancing is more than a dream, it’s a way to forget her past. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time makes her the sole witness to a stabbing and brings back horrible memories. Since the killers saw her just as clearly as she saw them, Abbey is now a loose end that needs to be tied up.
Blake St. John is working toward his PI license and hopes to find the man who hurt his brother in a kidnapping. He quit chasing his quiet co-worker, Abbey, months ago. But now that she needs protection, he takes on the role of bodyguard and all the feelings he tried to bury for her come back with a vengeance.
Abbey’s past makes it hard to trust and an attempt on her life forces her to realize that time is running out as the killers get closer. Now, she must risk it all or face a life without the one man who showed her how to love.
“You’re in a good mood,” Abbey said, coming out of her bedroom.
Blake turned and nearly dropped to the ground in supplication. It took a concerted effort to keep his jaw from hitting the floor.
Abbey canted her head. “What?”
What? Was she kidding? What was that in thirty minutes she’d transformed herself from stunning girl to absolute Miss Universe perfection. He didn’t often see her wearing makeup and the effect it had on her already smooth skin and clear green eyes nearly brought him to his knees. Her dirty blond hair hung smooth and long around her shoulders, and the form-fitting strappy neon pink top and black leggings with a matching pink stripe down the side showed off her toned dancer’s body. He pegged her at five foot eight and she was all legs. The girl had legs to her neck. Legs he wanted wrapped around his waist as he pushed inside of her and sent them both—
“Hello.” Abbey snapped her fingers in the air. “Blake. Yo.”
He snapped out of his daydream.
“What’s got you on another planet?” She headed to the sofa and left the smell of citrus in her wake. She rifled through her bag for something.
“Uh…nothing.” He backed up toward the door. “You ready to go?” If he stayed in her apartment much longer, she might end up out of those clothes she wore. Man, he could imagine stripping everything off her. Slowly and surely exposing every inch of smooth, soft skin.
“I don’t know.” She put a hand on her hip and cocked a stance. “You ready to stop looking at me like I’m your next meal?”
His gaze flashed to hers and he smiled. “Was I doing that?”
She nodded with one eyebrow arched high.
“Sorry. I couldn’t help myself. I’ll work on it.”
“Good. You need to.” She swung a large bag over her shoulder. “C’mon. I don’t want to be late,” she said, passing him to open the front door.
