Okay, creepiness aside, the voice was making a whole lot of sense. I needed to get hidden. I had a few ideas, mulled them over while I used the shower and wrapped myself tightly in the towels that had been hanging on the wall. Mostly dry and much cleaner, I still didn’t know what to do, where to go. Fear twisted and churned and gurgled in my gut.
My husband and I have traveled to Hawaii several times, and I fall more love with the islands with each visit. Being a writer and a romantic at heart, I spent some time last year on the long and winding road down from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, doing what I do best — daydreaming.
What if I were a young, single tourist? And what if I met a handsome Hawaiian … and you know how daydreaming goes. There’s a little bit of me in every one of my heroines. And a bit of my husband in every one of my heroes.
That was the beginning of Hawaiian Heroes I; Walking in Fire. Writing Melia and David’s story was more fun than I’ve had since … well, since we were actually in Hawaii. I spent a good part of this last fall and early winter in my office with beautiful Hawaiian music streaming on Pandora Internet Radio as I keyboarded, transporting myself away from cold rain to a tropical paradise full of intrigue, danger and hot, hot sensual romance. My characters always seem to fall into bed and then into love, lol.
Here’s a quick blurb, so you can meet Melia and ‘Malu’.
Born to defend his people, he will sacrifice everything—for her.
Nawea Bay, a remote Hawaiian paradise, is just the haven Melia Carson needs to escape the chill of heartache. Instead, she finds herself swept up in a tropical heat wave, fueled by her unexpected attraction to a handsome native she meets on a snorkel tour.
He’s big, powerful, hot enough to melt her defenses—and he’s not all he seems. How else could he survive an injury that should have killed him…and why does she dream of him garbed in ancient native dress and wreathed in flames?
David “Malu” Ho’omalu is on the Big Island to find and destroy a cache of dangerous designer drugs before they can be sold to his people. Fending off amorous female tourists is part of the job, but one look in Melia’s blue eyes, and his instincts scream that she is his.
As Melia surrenders to the desire burning between them, she discovers more than a fiery heritage that defies modern logic. She discovers a man who would descend into the molten depths of the volcano to protect his island. And her…if she can find the strength to trust her heart to him.
Hot, hot Hawaiian hero with volcanic passion on his mind. Better pack a heat-proof bikini for this island paradise.
