Q: Will Love in Spades be available for pre-order?
A: No, Love in Spades will be going directly to release.
Q: Where will I be able to purchase Love in Spades?
A: Love in Spades will be available through Amazon and KU for the time being. If that changes at any point, I'll be sure to announce it.
Q: Will it be available in paperback?
A: Yes. Love in Spades will be available in paperback.
Q: Will there be an audio version?
A: Yes. Love in Spades goes into audiobook production next month with the fabulous Greg Tremblay. Originally I intended on having auditions, and although there are so many amazing narrators out there, I needed something very specific for one of the Kings: Lucky.
Eduardo "Lucky" Alejandro Morales is Cuban, from a little village outside Havana who came over to Florida as a teen, and grew up in Miami. Because of his character, his background, his thick accent, his way of speaking, and because his book is the third in the series, it was very important to me that Lucky's voice be as accurate. As a Cuban author who also grew up in Miami as a teen, I knew what I was looking for, and it was very important to me that Lucky's voice be just right, especially since there are several scenes in which Lucky speaks Spanish. Considering the series takes place around Florida, there are characters from all backgrounds. As a fan of Greg's, I know he'll do a fantastic job.
Q: Will the series be available in other languages?
A: Yes! I'm very excited to announce I signed a contract with Juno Publishing for the French translation of the series, and with Triskell Edizioni for the Italian translations. As soon as I have more info on these, I'll be sure to share it with you.Q: Do you have a Pinterest inspiration board? A: Absolutely!

Thank you all so much for joining the Kings!
LOVE IN SPADES
Four Kings Security: Book 1
Ex-Special Forces soldier Anston “Ace” Sharpe is fighting a different battle these days—one involving the world of private security across the state of Florida. As part owner of Four Kings Security, Ace and his fellow Kings tackle everything from armed transport and investigations to cyber intelligence and executive protection. Cocky, fearless, and brash, Ace isn’t afraid to take risks.
After years of working alongside his father, Colton Connolly is ready to take the helm at Connolly Maritime, but his father’s retirement is put on hold when Colton begins receiving death threats. If that isn’t bad enough, his father signs a contract with Four Kings Security to provide Colton with round-the-clock protection, despite his adamant refusal. Colton’s life has been turned upside down, the last thing he needs is a shadow, especially in the form of infuriating, sexy-as-sin Ace Sharpe, who seems to be on a mission to drive Colton mad.
Sparks fly the moment Colton and Ace meet on a sultry night club dance floor. But getting involved with a client, even one as fiery and beautiful as Colton Connolly, is a line Ace is unwilling to cross. Colton might be attracted to Ace, but he’d been burned before. He might be willing to put his life in Ace’s hands, but not his heart.
As the Florida nights heat up, so does their passion, and Ace and Colton are faced with a difficult choice—take the plunge and risk it all, or play it safe and walk away?
If Ace can keep a deadly threat from robbing Colton of a future….
