Why I wanted to write a series.

I have been reading for decades, and formed a book club four years ago. We love to read suspense, mostly romantic suspense, but became hooked on reading series books about three years ago. From the first book where the characters are introduced up to the last book I become wrapped up in their lives, and I loved it. I got involved mentally in their activities and their drama.
 Most of the girls in our group work together so it’s easy to talk about the chapters we’re reading. I remember talking about one of Cindy Gerard’s books during a break at the clinic. We were grouped around my desk, discussing how we felt about the kidnapping and who we thought was behind it. Then we discussed how the agent was really wrapped up in drugs and screwed up the evidence.  We knew our conversation was about a character, but if you were just walking by I’m sure it sounded like we were talking about some of our friends or family. 

Well, I was pulled into the office at the end of the day because our office manager thought I had some problems and needed someone to talk to. He said that one of the nurses heard me talking and he wanted to know if I needed someone to go with me to the police station. He was actually concerned that there was a real kidnap victim and crooked cop. I was touched by his kindness, but also got a good laugh about it. Note to self, never discuss any erotic stories at work unless I close my door. We might get more attention then we bargained for.
I decided I wanted to write a series. A big leap for my first venture into the writing scene, but my mind was running with these characters and the stories started to write themselves. The Guardian’s of Hope series has a total of eight books. It’s a formation of FBI Agents, Navy Seals and Special Ops that form a rescue group for missions the government label impossible. The first one, Rescued from the Dark, was released February 16 and the second, Last Chance to Run, should be out at the end of this year. Then there’s the third one running rampant in my head, screaming for its time. But it will have to wait a little longer, but not too long.   

What if you woke from a nightmare, trapped in a world of darkness, with no memory of how you got there? Rescued from the Dark is a passionate, gripping story about FBI agent, Jason Michaels, confronting his duty to his country, and struggling with his feelings for a woman with no memory of their love.

Undercover Agent,Jason Michael s, infiltrates the terrorist cell and risks everything, even his life, to save the FBI intern who stole his heart and then walked away. Once Mercy wakes from her coma Jason struggles with the fact that she does not remember what happened, but anguishes with the idea that she believes their unborn child belongs to her ex. Jason soon realizes the terrorists vow to claim their secrets locked in her memory, no matter what the cost. In a race against time, Jason and Mercy struggle to fight their attraction, and put their differences aside, as they launch a manhunt to save their country and each other.

Now you know what I like, tell me what your favorite genre is to read and do you like a series or prefer a standalone story?
