I have a secret about these books. They weren’t originally Valentine’s themed.

When I proposed the idea to my editor for His Shock Valentine’s Proposal and Craving Her Ex-Army Doc, I sent her the synopsis for both books thinking I would write one book in April 2015 and the next in July 2015 about two brothers.

I had set the books in the summer time in my synopsis and I figured the books would be released on different dates.

When my editor got back to me she was excited about the idea, but wondered if I could make them both Valentine’s themed, write them both together and then they would release them together and make them a miniseries.

I have to say, my heart skipped a beat. Could I do it? I’d never written two books close together like that before. I usually take a couple of weeks to recharge the muse.

I said yes. I jumped at the chance.

Why not? It would be a challenge. It would be fun.

His Shock Valentine’s Proposal is still set in summer and ends on Valentine’s Day. In Craving Her Ex-Army Doc, it’s set in the winter and you get to see even more of the first couple’s story in the end of this book.


I loved writing about these brothers in a small Montana town up in the mountains.


I loved the Valentine’s theme I got to write. It was hard work to get the stories done, but if my editor asked me to do something like this again I would in a heartbeat! I hope you enjoy the Ralston brothers and their love stories.

    1. Thank you, Launna. It was challenging and I needed quite a break to recoup my brain power after that. LOL

  4. I also like series books because we can continue in the life of our favorite characters, learn a little more about them. These sound like exciting books, Amy. I like a winter setting in Montana. So much can happen there. All the luck with your new releases. I need to add these to my list of readings. Thanks for sharing this with your readers, Nas and Amy.

  5. Wow! I am duly impressed. I write about as fast as a sleep-deprived snail, so the idea of writing TWO books that quickly makes my head spin. Good for you for being up to the challenge!

    1. I was slow in the beginning of my career. Last year I wrote 5 books. I went from 1-2 to 5 and even I was a bit shell shocked, Susan. So if I can do it, anyone can. :)
