Mia London is a huge fan of romance, highly optimistic, and wildly faithful to the HEA (happily ever after). Her goal is to create a fantasy you will enjoy with characters you could love. Today she joins us to talk about her newest project with writing partner Susan Sheehey. Susan writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense and women's fiction. Water plays a crucial element in all of her novels, and she's a strong advocate for Autism Awareness. Learn more about Mia and her books at her website and Susan and her books at her website.
Writing can be a solitary business, so when we get the opportunity to write with a fellow-author, it amps up the fun in our work. For Susan Sheehey and myself, this will be the second time we’ve collaborated on a project.
Our newest series, a romantic suspense duet, is called Cascade Mountain Manhunt. It’s on pre-order now for a special price and goes live May 19th.
But that’s not really what I wanted to share. As some of you know, Susie and I wrote a trilogy together in 2018, the Sweet Escape series, a romantic comedy series we came up with while on a road trip together. We started this fun girls’ vacation storyline in 2017, and then life happened. In October of 2017, Susie lost her dad unexpectedly, and in March of 2018, I broke my leg (really badly) on a ski trip. Our worlds were thrust into scary and uncertain times.
But somehow we managed to keep each other motivated, relying on each other to get through those really hard moments, and we churned out 3 award-winning books.
The world certainly seems to be off its axis lately, and not that we planned it, but here we are again. Writing, laughing, crying, and supporting each other in a way women do.
We hope you enjoy these stories!
Mia and Susie
P.S. Keep an eye out on our newsletters or social media. We will have a huge giveaway to launch this new romantic suspense duet!
Cascade Mountain Manhunt, Book 1
As a federal agent, spending a year running for his life felt like a nightmare from which Reed Monroe couldn’t wake. But with the notorious cartel on his tail for stealing their money as a DEA cybersecurity specialist, and his bosses believing he killed his partner to cover up his role as a mole, he didn’t have a choice. Running was the only option, at least until he proved he was innocent. Someone was willing to do anything to stop him from digging up the truth. And that someone worked for the DEA. He just had to live long enough to prove it.
Skye Winters had buried her nose in mystery novels most her life, desperate to escape the monotony of sleepy Cascade Creek, Washington. Her most exciting time of day is imagining the adventurous backstories of customers that sit in her station at the Rock Road Diner. Including one handsome stranger looking for a job as a short-order cook. Every adventurous story he regales her with is as unlikely as the next. Until one fateful and shocking day involving the arrival of cartel assassins reveals his stories aren’t at all fictional. The adventure she craves stares her in the face, far more vivid and dangerous than she imagined. For the first time ever, her fictional novels can’t possibly live up to reality. But is it more than she’s willing to handle?
Cascade Mountain Manhunt, Book 2
Cascade Creek is the perfect home for Lynée Clark—the mountains, her friends, a cozy home, her dream job at the library. Life simply couldn’t be any more perfect. When a scruffy, tattooed man rides into town on his metallic stallion to arrest her best friend’s boyfriend, her perfect world is upturned into chaos. Everything goes wrong, her best friend is forced into hiding from a cartel assassin, and her predictable days are thrust into upheaval. But the only way to bring home her friend and return her turbulent life back to normal is to help the DEA Special Agent on his case to uncover the truth. Which means spending a lot of time up close and personal with this bearded troublemaker in leather with zero manners and an addiction to cursing.
Jace Ivy has one mission: capture a rogue DEA agent that all others have failed to seize. After three months of tracking, Jace claims victory on his most difficult trace yet. Only to realize Reed Monroe might not be the double-agent his bosses claim. Thanks to a bloodthirsty cartel hitman, bumps in the road grow into massive roadblocks. Ones he can’t break down without the help of an unexpected research assistant, a local librarian who volunteers to help him so her best friend can return home. Lynée accomplishes much more than deciphering the mountains of evidence in his case, but also batters down his defensive walls and beastly façade. How can he resist turning Miss Prim-and-Proper into a seductive temptress with an equally dirty mouth?
