Whoooooo want’s a blurb? So as many of you know, Force of Nature is the 4th book in the Coming About Series. I expect to release it mid-to-late June, depending on our editing schedule. This is the story of Neal Hesse (Love and the Real Boy, Unbreak Broken), Bennett Foster’s Harbor Patrol partner. Neal’s having a tough time, so he goes of the grid and gets into all kinds of shenanigans in the North Cascades of Washington State.
I hope my beta reader won’t mind me quoting her, when I sent her the blurb (because I always second-guess myself), she said “I would read that in a hot minute.” So hopefully you all agree with her!
Everyone knows that bonds formed under extreme circumstances never last.
Harbor Patrol officer Neal Hesse has had his life turned upside down by a sudden break-up with his partner of ten years. After sleeping his way through Seattle failed to take his mind off his broken heart, he decides to take a leave of absence from work to find himself again. He hires a professional wilderness guide to take him up into the mountains, so he can get away from everything and live off the grid for a few days.
Travis “Rock” McCreary, ex-Army Ranger turned survivalist, hates doing guided excursions, but it’s his primary source of income while he’s working towards getting his own survival show. Working in such a testosterone-fueled profession has forced him so deep into the closet, he feels like he might never see the light of day again, which makes it even harder to put on a friendly face for his happy, normal clients.
When Rock is hired by clumsy city-boy Neal to take him up into the North Cascades for a survival adventure, his patience and his resolve are tested at every turn. He has to teach Neal to survive in the wilderness while fighting an attraction he can’t allow himself to act on.
When their trip doesn’t go as planned, Neal’s getaway turns into a true survival situation, and he and Rock are forced to rely on each other to stay alive. If they make it out of the wilderness, can their newfound connection survive in the real world?
