I don't know how I missed Tara Janzen's novels about the Steele Street Special Defense Force bad boys, but I did.

However, the cover of the current title grabbed me at the book store and refused to let go. I took the book home and started reading, at once immersed in an action-packed world swimming in testosterone, muscle cars and kick-butt women who know how to handle the men, the cars, the weapons and the action.

Although this book is about Dylan Hart and Skeeter Bang (you just have to love some of the names the author comes up with!), you'll also get to meet Superman and the others.

Tara Janzen writes an absolutely unputdownable book that rocks and rolls to the end.

As a result, I went back to my favorite bookseller and picked up the previous four books and pre-ordered the sixth. I wanna read 'em all!

In the beginning, there were only supposed to be six books in the series. But sales and fans have pushed that into more titles. So we can look forward to more CRAZY goodness to come!

STORM FORCE is coming!

Hi All,

I've been remiss in adding to the blog. Taking me a little while to get the hang of it. And to figure out what to say.

I've been working on my next book but I recently got through the line-edits for STORM FORCE, my next novel. It's due out in December. I think it's going to be a fantastic read.

Kate Garrett is a wilderness guide in Everglades City, Florida. She's the mother of two children, but her rich ex-husband has managed to keep them away from her except for limited visitation. Now he's called her out of the blue and asked her to keep them.

Suspicious but grateful, Kate picks up her kids (after stopping to help a prison bus that flipped over on the highway in front of her and having her Jeep stolen), and her life goes totally crazy. Out at the campsites she operates, telling people that Hurricane Genevieve is bearing down on them and they have to get to high ground, Kate winds up face-to-face with the escaped prisoners she met earlier that day.

Raymond Jolly and his crew were in prison for the kidnapping/murder of an heiress. The ten million dollar ransom was never found. Now he's out looking for it again, and he captures Kate to use as a guide. Bad boy Shane Williams is another convict who's along to help Jolly and his group get out of the country. But despite the fact that he's a criminal, Kate finds herself attracted to Shane.

In the hands of convicts who will doubtlessly murder her when she's guided them out of the wilderness, with the worst storm in history bearing down on her, Kate Garrett rises to the challenge. The convicts have made one fatal error -- they're on Kate's turf now, and nobody does it better.

Hope you enjoy it!
