Happy Release Day to Me!!!

I am SO excited to finally have a new story out. DEEP BLUE releases today from Siren-Bookstrand. My publisher gave it the steamiest rating of "Sextreme." Gotta love that! It's different than anything I've ever written before. Here's the blurb.

Under the light of a full moon and lurking in the restless waves of the deep blue sea, someone or something watches a ship cutting through the dark waters.

Insurance fraud investigator Kate Hargrove is looking into the disappearances of women from a cruise line. She soon “disappears” herself when pulled undersea by a giant sea creature. Now, this beauty is trapped beneath the sea with a desperate beast.

100 years ago, Thaddeus Ryker was cursed and banished to the ocean depths. He has only three more days to find someone to love him in his monstrous half man/half sea creature state or he’ll spend eternity as a monster of the sea.

When her terror subsides, Kate realizes she’s both attracted to and repulsed by Thaddeus. As she gets to know him, she discovers a sexy, haunted man. Can she learn to love him – a monster – in just three days?

Available now!

Becca, now that is a true Beauty and the Beast tale. Love the cover! Did you have to do research about the ocean? How did you decide to make your heroine an insurance investigator?

Becca Simone said...

Thanks, Kayelle! I did some research about the ocean. It helped that my son was doing a paper about giant squids while I wrote this book. :)

As for the insurance investigator role...I originally came up with the idea for this story when I read a news article about mysterious disappearances from cruise ships. My imagination took over and my story was born. I asked myself what kind of job the heroine could have that would lend itself to this story. Thus, she became an insurance fraud investigator, looking into these disappearances.
