Badge of Tenacity
Happy New Year.
May your 2023 be full of happiness and good health. I had a quiet Christmas and New Year and backed away from social media etc, to take a mental break, which is part of the reason my new release announcement is a little late.
Badge of Tenacity, the second book in my Clare Instalove series released on 2 January. As a reader, I adore the idea of finding your family when perhaps you don’t have support from your real family or if you don’t have a family of your own.
The idea behind the Clare Instalove series is that of a group of military men rely on each other become close and supportive. They become family. The heroes are strong and decisive and understand exactly what they want, while the women they meet are strong in other ways, often because they’ve had to overcome obstacles in their past. Chrissie and Jarrod are no exception, and I enjoyed writing their story.
Here’s the blurb for Badge of Tenacity:
Can a retired military man finally claim his childhood friend as his lover when they’ve both changed, and a world of experience and problems lies between them?
I’ve retired from the military and moved home with two goals:
to go into business with my best friend.
to stake a claim on Chrissie, the gorgeous woman who haunts my dreams.
Number two bothers me because, while she’s currently single, I know nothing about her private life or marriage. I’m about to find out…
Since my husband died, life has been challenging. I work long hours to pay the bills, and someone is playing nasty pranks on me. The anxiety messes with my mind and causes big-time stress, but I keep going. That’s what I do.
Jarrod reappears in my life with perfect timing, and he’s no longer a scrawny kid. He’s muscular and easy on the eye—a generous man who appeals to me on every level. We might not have a future, but he’s perfect as Mr. Right Now. If only the rest of my existence ran as smoothly.
Contains a determined ex-military man, a hard-working lady farmer facing skullduggery from a mystery foe, and a little small town instalove, which makes everything better.
Badge of Tenacity is available at Amazon and is in Kindle Unlimited.
