Celebrating The Release of Book One In Lori Foster's Men Who Walk The Edge Of Honor Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of WHEN YOU DARE, Book one in Lori Foster's Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series and the first time in print!


Lori Foster first published with Harlequin in January 1996. Her second book launched Temptation Blaze and her 25th book launched Temptation Heat. Since those early days, Lori has routinely had 6 to 10 releases a year. She's a Waldenbooks, USA Today, Publisher's Weekly and New York Times bestselling author with over 80 titles published through a variety of houses, including Berkley/Jove, Kensington, St. Martins, Harlequin and Silhouette.

Lori believes it's important to back to the community as much as possible, and for that reason she ran special contests in conjunction with a publisher, facilitating many first sales for new authors. She routinely organizes events among authors and readers to gather donations for various organizations.

Along with her good friend, Dianne Castell, Lori hosts a very special annual "Reader & Author" event in West Chester Ohio. Proceeds from the event go to benefit worthy causes, including the Hamilton County YWCA Battered Women's Shelter, the Animal Adoption Foundation, and The Conductive Learning Center for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy. CLICK HERE for details on this year's Reader & Author Get Together!

WHEN YOU DARE - Book One of The Men Who Walk The Edge Of Honor by Lori Foster

The tougher they are, the harder they fall...

Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard and fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped - and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure.

Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all...

  20. Sorry I wasn't around today folks. I went to the salon for a keratin treatment and highlights and it lasted from 10 am to 3 pm! Then I looked at houses with my son who is house-shopping. LOL. Got a chat starting in about 10 minutes. Oy!

  21. Kathleen O- I'm currently working on a book that'll be out in May 2012 titled, "A Perfect Storm." It's next in the series!

    Elizabeth - mercs are big old bad Alphas - and that's all it took to convince me. LOL. Love those over the top protective guys!

    Jessica - I saw "Taken" with Liam Neeson, and that's what got the old creative crank to turn. ;-) Love action flicks!

    Sheri V - I did most of the research on human traffickers, and then did some on special groups that counter human trafficking. From there, I made it up! LOL

    Thanks!
    More later,

    Lori

  22. flchen - we choose great organizations that are local to us. :-)

    Sherry, I'm kicking around a duo of books on siblings. I don't like to talk about them too much beforehand or I lose the motivation to write them. ;-)

    That 6 to 10 is dated. I think I'm down to 5 or so and at least a few are novellas! :-)

    Thanks everyone!

    Lori

  24. Congratulations on your new release Lori!

    Since you've been writing for a while and have quite a backlist - is there one particular book that is a favorite? What book would you recommend that a new reader start with to get a feel for your writing?

  28. Congrats on the new book! Thank you for all of your wonderful sotries. Who was your favorite couple to write? Also, if I may be so greedy, wich couple had to grow on you?

    ReplyDelete
  29. kaisquared... I'll bring all 3, just not in the flesh. LOL But I have to agree that I LOVE that trailer!

    Alexis - favorite couple of my own to write. Hmmm...Bruce and Cyn, from "When Bruce Met Cyn," were pretty special to me.
    None of them had to grow on me, really. I only write characters that I really love because that makes it easier! LOL

    Hugs to all,

    Lori

  30. Hi Maria,
    The two books readers always mentio to me are "Say No To Joe?" and "Too Much Temptation." So if a new reader wanted a recommendation, I'd probably suggest one or both of those!

    Hugs,

    Lori
