Just One Look
Sometimes that's all it takes...
FBI Special Agent Drew Davenport, still recovering from a life-threatening wound after a disastrous shootout, doesn't have time to be serious about any woman. But Mia Alvarez, with her down-to-earth warmth, leaves him blind-sided.
A painful experience crushed Mia's belief in love. The last thing she needs is an entanglement with Drew, whose sister is marrying her brother. And certainly not when she's keeping a major secret. Despite her misgivings, forced proximity and overwhelming attraction lead to passion.
When Mia's secret shows up in the form of a stalker, Drew's determined to protect her. Can he overcome his fear of failing again when emotions get in the way? And while Mia trusts Drew with her safety, can she trust in love when it happens with just one look?
Just One Look is a short stand-alone companion novel to Against the Wind.

Interview with Shane

What is it that you want, but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
My brother. He's been kidnapped. Adrian is the only family I have left and I'll do anything to get him back.
What's your internal limitation? Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need to do during this story?
This situation is crazy, but that's not surprising. Adrian and I have had an unusual life. We come from a family of vampire hunters. To free him, I need to seduce a vampire. That's not really a problem. I've lured them before so that I can destroy them, but I've never met a vampire quite like Detective Bryce Tarunson. Before I met Bryce, all I cared about was getting Adrian back, no matter what.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For the first time in my life, I have feelings other than hatred for a vampire. I never thought a vampire could be like Bryce. He tells me he's one of the good guys, but that goes against everything I know about vampires. He hasn't given me a reason not to trust him, though, and he has gone out of his way to help me get Adrian back.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
It's so difficult. That person is Bryce. We should be enemies, but from the moment we met I wanted him. He has strength and integrity. Even though he's a vampire, I want to trust him. I know I can trust him. Yeah, the sex is great, but there's a lot more between us than that.
What is your family like?
Adrian is the only blood family I have left. Our grandparents and our parents were killed by vampires. After they died, we went to live with our uncle, but he was killed in the same way. Adrian and I were home schooled, mostly because a big part of our education was the history of vampires and how to kill them.
What special skills do you rely on?
I rely on everything I've been taught about how to track and destroy vampires. I also have a special skill of my own. It's more a gift than a skill. I'm immune to mind control, so vampires can't manipulate me in that way.
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
I'm with Bryce. He didn't betray me, but there are still lose ends regarding Adrian. The last thing I expected was to fall in love. Bryce owns a piece of my heart now and I'm fine with it. Better than fine. I only wish things had been different for Adrian and for Bryce's friends too. They tried to help us, and they've paid the price for it. Bittersweet is how I'd describe the end of my story.

About You: Questions for the writer.

When you wrote about this character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
I was happy to see Shane learn to trust Bryce and fall in love. They both have had their share of pain, that's for sure. Everything they went through in the past made me sad. They lost a lot, but together they've found some peace.
What do you want to write next?
Right now I'm working on an erotic fantasy romance set in the same world as my Knights of the Ruby Order series. The hero and heroine are driving each other crazy in every possible way, so it's been a lot of fun to write so far.
What other character from this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
When I ended this story, I had plans to give Adrian one of his own. He falls in love with his captor. Tarun has been the villain of the entire series, but in Fangs and Floggers, he gets to tell his side of the story.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
Thank you so much for reading my stories! I hope you enjoy the Weapons of Redemption series. I truly loved writing about these guys.

David McIntyre has been enjoying the heck out of his current assignment: touring the Hawaiian Islands in search of the ideal shooting locations for a series of film company projects. What's not to like? Stunning scenery, great food, sunny beaches…and a secret crush on his hot, ex-Air Force pilot, Rick Sutton.
Everything changes when a tropical storm and engine failure force a crash landing on a deserted atoll with a WWII listening post. Rick's injuries, and a lack of food and water, make rescue imperative, but it takes an intensely vivid dream about the war to make David see that Rick is more than just a pilot to him. Will David gather his courage to confess his feelings to Rick—before it's too late?
