I am always saying how I need to read more romantic suspense and one author/series that has been on my radar to start reading soon is definitely the True Heroes series by Piper J. Drake.  We are excited to be talking with Piper today to find out more about her latest release and can’t wait to start reading.

Welcome to Under the Covers! We are excited to have you here today talking about FIERCE JUSTICE (out February 26, 2019). This is the 5th book in the True Heroes series. How would you describe this series for new readers?

Every True Heroes book features a veteran hero or heroine in the next phase of their lives after military and they’re in the process of building their lives when they meet their love interests. So I’d say the True Heroes are about love, second chances, and the best canine companions. 😉

What are three words to describe this book?

Fierce, Love, Acceptance

What about 3 words to describe your writing style?

Action, Introspection, Dynamic

If you could be best friends with one person in your book, who would it be?

King. He’s a supporting character, but he is 15/10 a Very Good Dog.

What’s your favorite snack and/or beverage while you’re writing?

Onigiri and ginger tea.

Do you write by the seat of your pants, or do you carefully plot your stories?

A combination. I tend to plot with a 1 to 2 sentence idea of what’s going to happen in each chapter, then each scene in the chapter is discovery written, or pantsed.

Would you like to share a favorite moment from your writing career?

A reader reached out to me to tell me how my books had helped her through a tough time in her life when she was being bullied. She’d named her service dog Piper and sent me photos. She’d also named other service dogs she was training after some of the dogs in the True Heroes series.

Knowing my stories helped someone through tough times was amazing. I am so grateful and very happy to continue sharing my stories for others to enjoy.

Who are three romance authors who turn you into a fangirl?

Jill Shalvis, Nalini Singh, Courtney Milan

What’s the last book you read that you would recommend?

A Thousand Beginnings and Endings, compiled by We Need Diverse Books’s Ellen Oh and Elsie Chapman. The authors included in this collection are: Renée Ahdieh, Sona Charaipotra, Preeti Chhibber, Roshani Chokshi, Aliette de Bodard, Melissa de la Cruz, Julie Kagawa, Rahul Kanakia, Lori M. Lee, E. C. Myers, Cindy Pon, Aisha Saeed, Shveta Thakrar, and Alyssa Wong.

I enjoyed and savored each of the short stories in this collection.

What can we expect from you next?

The next book after FIERCE JUSTICE is also the last book in the True Heroes series. FOREVER STRONG will be coming out at the turn of the year.

After the True Heroes series, my new romantic suspense series will be coming out. You can read about The Missing in this blog post: http://piperjdrake.com/the-missing-new-series/

As a K9 handler on the Search and Protect team, Arin Siri needs to be where the action is--and right now that's investigating a trafficking operation in Hawaii. When an enemy from her past shows up bleeding, she's torn between the desire to patch Jason up or put more holes in him. Then again, the hotshot mercenary could be the person she needs to bust open her case.

Jason Landon's team had always been about taking the contract, getting paid, and not asking questions. But after his last mission went south, he started to get curious. His questions quickly drove him out of his mercenary group and off the grid. Now, the only people he can think of to help him are the Search and Protect team -- and the dark beauty who is as ready to kill him as she is to bed him. And he's totally ready to risk the former for the chance at the latter. But he isn't the only person with a target on his back. Arin's in danger too, and he'll do everything he can to keep her safe.
