I’m so happy to be blogging at Romance Book Paradise. Plus, who wouldn’t want to visit Fiji, even virtually? Especially someone with a blog titled Under the Tiki Hut. Just sayin’ J
Today I’m going to talk about both of my books. My upcoming novel, Solomon’s Compass, releases next week – on Tuesday, April 2 – and will be available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. It’s a story of love, loyalty, and the value of keeping a promise.
Taylor is in Rock Harbor, Texas, on a quest to unearth her uncle’s treasure—a journey far outside the realm of her real life. There’s one glitch. Taylor's certain the buried treasure was all in Uncle Randy's dementia-riddled mind. Now he’s dead.
Former SEAL Jake Solomon is in Rock Harbor under false pretenses to protect Taylor from the fate that befell her uncle and the other members of a tight circle of Coast Guardsmen called the Compass Points who served together on Point boats in Vietnam.
Jake is definitely not supposed to become involved with Taylor. That was his first mistake. Taylor is attracted to Jake as well, but she refuses to wait for him to locate the killer when she knows her plan will force her uncle’s murderer into action.
But the killer's actions are just what Jake is afraid of.
In addition to telling you about Solomon’s Compass, I’m giving away one copy of my debut novel, In Name Only, to one lucky commenter. If the winner lives in the U.S., she has a choice of a Kindle book or a signed paperback. If she lives elsewhere, she will receive a Kindle book.
The night Summer escapes from a burning Padre Island eatery and discovers the arsonist is stalking her, is the same night she meets Fire Captain Gabriel Duran. As much as she's attracted to Gabe, five years in the Federal Witness Security Program because of her father’s testimony against a mob boss have taught her the importance of being alone and invisible.
No matter how much she yearns for a real home, Summer relinquished that option the night she killed the man who murdered her father. But Gabe breaks down her guard and places both of them in danger. Summer has vowed never to kill again, but she's frantic she'll cost Gabe his life unless she stops running and fights for the future she wants with the man she loves.
I would also like to invite each of you to my blog, Under the Tiki Hut, for a free virtual margarita to celebrate the last Monday of March Monday Mania. While I’m blogging here and giving away one copy of In Name Only, my guest today at Under the Tiki Hut is mystery author Jan Christensen, who is giving away one of her books. To be eligible to win Jan’s book, all you have to do is leave a comment at Under the Tiki Hut. And yes, it is possible to win both books!
Carol Kilgore has always had stories and characters in her head, but she didn’t know she should write them down until about a dozen years ago. Once she started, she couldn’t stop.
Her first published short story won the Derringer Award for Best Short-Short Mystery. She continued to write short fiction for a few years and also enjoyed a small success as a freelancer before giving it all up for her true love—novels.
Carol writes a blend of mystery, suspense, and romance she calls Crime Fiction with a Kiss. Always at least one crime; always a love story. Solomon’s Compass is her second published novel.
As the wife of a Coast Guard officer, Carol has lived in locations across the U.S. She and her husband now live in a San Antonio suburb and share their home and patio with two active herding dogs that keep them free from all danger, real or imagined.
