Growing up in a tiny community in Alabama boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn't thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart.
Christy's award winning Last Chance Rescue series consists of nine books and features strong, alpha males, smart, courageous women, plenty of steam, action adventure, and always a happy ending. Christy is currently writing an LCR novella, CHANCES ARE, that she plans to release at the end of 2012.
A member of Romance Writers of America and International Thriller Writers, Christy lives in Alabama with her husband, five incredibly cute canines and one very shy turtle.
Christy also writes steamy southern suspense as Ella Grace. The first book in Ella's Midnight series, MIDNIGHT SECRETS, is scheduled for release April 30, 2013.
Jamie Kendrick went on a trip to hell at the hands of Stanford Reddington, a monster protected by money and power. Now, asking for Last Chance Rescue's help, Jamie makes plans for her revenge. And Dylan Savage, one of LCR's most skilled operatives, is given an assignment he despises but can't refuse-to train the lovely Jamie but thwart her revenge plot at all costs. With tender ruthlessness, he pries open her most intimate secrets, and the attraction they've both tried to deny explodes into a scorching love affair-an affair that Dylan has to end. Months after Jamie stormed away from Dylan and LCR, the two meet again-at the home of Stanford Reddington. In the grips of hurt, anger, desire, and undercover danger, Jamie and Dylan will risk more than broken hearts: they're risking everything to stop an evil fiend from destroying more lives, including their own.
