Annie Seaton is someone who needs no introduction to regular readers of this blog. Her AFFAIR trilogy, her steampunk novels and now her romantic suspense novel have all been introduced here. She’s very welcome back to MBB again to tell us about her back to back releases, OUTBACK AFFAIR (#3 of the AFFAIR series) and a hot new romantic suspense novel DANGEROUS DESIRE. She’s a very busy lady, but she found time to come here and tell us about her new releases.

Annie, it’s great to see you back with two exciting contemporary romances. You must have been working like crazy lately. How did they come to be released so close together?
My middle name should be ‘determined’, Maria. I have set myself a very busy schedule and I am disciplined in my working day (and night!). I love working to crazy deadlines…it seems to spur me on. Not only do I have these two books back to back, I have another one (a Bliss with Entangled Publishing being released in December called Tangling with the CEO and then, another Entangled imprint ( a Covet book) called Hot Rock in February.
You seem to thrive on hard work. What do you do to relax?
I love to walk on the beach and potter about in my garden. After many years in the education sector and going off to a job each day, I now find it an absolute luxury to write from hone and have the joy of my garden and beach walks whenever I want!
Contemporary romance or paranormal – can you tell us what’s your absolute favourite?
Contemporary is my favourite of those two choices…but my first love is history. I have a historical suspense coming out in 2014 with Entangled Publishing. I am researching at the moment and loving it. New Orleans, pirates and emeralds!
Please do us a favour and sum up the plots of both your new releases in one tweet sized sentence each.
Outback Affair: This outback trip is one she will never forget…and one which will change him forever.
Dangerous Desire: She must choose between trust and deception, or love and desire in the steamy tropics.
What’s in the future for you, as of now?
Lots and lots more books! I have the two books I listed above in edits at the moment, as well as writing the Emerald Quest book. I also have another two books contracted by Entangled Publishing in the Half Moon Bay series after Book 1 –Tangling with the CEO. I also have some other projects in the negotiation stages and hope to be able to announce some more exciting news very soon!
Thanks so much for having me… we have been talking together about my books since my very first book, Winter of the Passion Flower over two years ago now, Maria!
Well, Annie, as long as you continue to write, I hope the communication continues! I’m a big fan of your work! And I’m looking forward to that exciting news….
Schoolteacher Gracie James has never seen more danger than her kindergarten grade classroom, but when she goes searching for her missing sister, she’s thrown into a world of sex, crime…and passion. Following a hot lead, she sneaks onto a stranger’s boat—and gets caught. Their one-sided conversation convinces her of two things. One: the guy is seriously sexy. Two: he knows something about her sister. Oh, yeah. And did she mention he’s sexy?
Jake Alexander, former cop, is staking out a yacht brimming with criminal activity, for an insurance company, when a woman, dressed to kill and totally irresistible, stumbles into his dangerous undercover op. If he hadn’t tackled her, she’d have tottered straight onto the questionable yacht in those ridiculous high heels. Then she’d be dead. Or worse. As much as he’d like to kick her off his boat, he can’t risk her going off on some hare-brained scheme—but he can’t keep her around to muck up his job. Oh, yeah. And did he mention she’s distracting as hell?
Unfortunately, she has a keen mind of her own. And a body any man would die for. Jake’s attempt to keep Gracie safe quickly morphs into a reluctant alliance. And a whole lot more… But Gracie finds herself knee deep in more trouble than she bargained for, with secrets revealed and the criminals coming after her. Unless they find a way to trust each other, they’re finished. Oh, yeah. And did they mention they’re in love?
