surprise new release!
Rescue Me Saga released Dec. 9. While we all were expecting it to be time for
Luke and Cassie, Kally’s recent battle with cancer derailed those plans. But
not wanting to disappoint her fans, she wrote what was going to be a book about
half this size but just kept growing so that she could give her fans a book
this fall as promised.
two characters who have had minor roles to this point in the Rescue Me Saga,
but who will play a large part in the future books in the series, including
NOBODY’S DREAM (Luke’s book which will release by March 4, 2015 now that
Kally’s cancer free and able to concentrate on it again.)
books before? No problem! NOBODY’S LOST provides readers with a new entry point
to the series. However, most readers enjoy and understand the depth of these
stories much more so when they read in order, starting with the first book, MASTERS
AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL (almost 500 pages in print!), which is FREE
everywhere. That’s the ideal place to start! Here’s the reading order for all
available books (including preorders):
NOBODY’S ANGEL (FREE!)
NOBODY’S LOST (releases Dec. 9–available for preorder one more day)
NOBODY’S DREAM (releases March 4 at latest–available for preorder)
and Buy Links
two characters with very minor mentions in the earlier books.
from serving multiple deployments but can’t leave the hell of combat behind
him. Frustrated and ashamed of his inability to function in the world as well
as the veterans he served with, he retreated, choosing to engage only with
those he trusted. When retired Master Sergeant Adam Montague sends him on a
mission to protect his sister from some unknown danger, Ryder’s days of hiding
out may be over. Can he fulfill his mission without failing again?
big-brother Marines bent on protecting her from the evils of the world, but
she’s tougher than they think. When her older brother sends Ryder, one of his
recon Marines, to her doorstep in the wee hours one night following a break-in,
she realizes he needs rescuing more than she does. A friendship forms quickly,
but unexpected passions run hot and complicate her resolve never to have a
romantic relationship, much less marriage. So why are her body and her heart
betraying her every time he comes near?
people lower their defenses long enough to allow love to grow?

plans for 2015
realistic Romance novels with an emphasis on healing using sometimes
unconventional methods, including BDSM (bondage, sado-masochism, kink,
interrogation scenes from hell, and more). My alpha males are dominant (whether
active in the BDSM lifestyle or former active-duty military or not) and
attracted to strong women who can bring them to their knees. I’ve brought many
readers to their knees, too—having them experience the stories right along with
her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. I know that Happily Ever After takes
maintenance, so my couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the
end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their
relationships in later books in the saga. That’s why it’s difficult to read the
series out of order (except for NOBODY’S LOST).
and have traveled extensively to try to get to every state (someday!) to hold
events as big as a KallypsoCon or as small as an intimate dinner for 3.
However, because I want to give my readers more books to read, I’m scaling way
back on appearances in 2015 so I can hunker down in the writing chair. (I write
in a glider, exactly like the one I describe in Adam’s bedroom at the Masters
at Arms Club.) Coming in 2015 are NOBODY’S DREAM (Rescue Me Saga #6–the
long-awaited Luke and Cassie story) and a novella (or short novel–you know I
don’t write short because NOBODY’S LOST started out to be a 35-40,000-word
novella and it ended at 71,000 words. The couple in that novel will be Pamela
(the NICE ex-girlfriend of Marc D’Alessio’s who you met in SOMEBODY’S ANGEL)
and Master Roar (Kristoffer Larson–a relative of Gunnar Larson’s, who trained
Damian and Grant as dominants). Then I’m not sure which direction I’ll go.
Grant and Patrick were HUGE in NOBODY’S LOST, and I planned a spin-off
three-book romantic suspense (with BDSM) for them. I may have to decide if the
time is right to begin Patrick’s story. Let me know what you think after you
start the spin-off series about Angelina Giardano’s firefighter brothers with
Tony (her brother) and Carmella (Marc’s sister) as the potential first couple.
Sparks sure were flying between them in that scene in SOMEBODY’S ANGEL.
Definitely something I want to explore!
appearances, I’ll be attending RomCon in Denver, Colorado, in September. And
the weekend before I will be conducting a Rescue Me Saga private sightseeing
tour of the places I write about in Denver and areas near Breckinridge. That
package will include lodging for three nights, bus transportation for the tour,
and at least one special meal each day.
second KallypsoCon to be held in the Boston, Mass., area in late October or
early November. In March, I’ll be announcing the authors who will join ne AND
will open up registration for the VERY limited number of reader spots. (We want
to keep this intimate and relaxing, which is what everyone at the first event
loved most. We only had 85 attendees, including 7 authors, but will probably
have 8 or 9 authors and up to 110 readers at this one (since so many of those
who were at the first one want to be there).
know about me? Well, I’ve been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit my
“day job” the month before. I live in rural Kentucky and have been married for
more than 30 years to the man who provided my Happily Ever After. We have two
adult children, one adorable grandson (Erik, who my followers on FB hear about
often!), and a rescued dog.

Saga who don’t mind spoilers and are caught up with the series as much as you
can be, I have a secret Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group. To join, just
send a friend request to Karla Paxton (a dummy account that is ONLY there to be
a gateway to the group and is monitored by one of my team members). If you are
already a member of the group, please don’t send another request. Karla
unfriends you after you are added so we can keep up with new requests.
