I wrote my own series for Harlequin Intrigue, The McClintock Brothers. It's funny, when I wrote the first book in the series, Circumstantial Memories, I didn't have a series in mind until the hero of that book decided he needed two brothers. So of course, I had to tell their stories, and then lo and behold, an illegitimate brother popped up for the McClintocks. The second book in the series, The Sheriff of Silverhill, came out in Jan. of this year, and the remaining two books, The McClintock Proposal and A Silverhill Christmas, will be out in Sept. and Dec. of this year.
With the McClintock series finished, I'm embarking on an adventure with another four men who will be keeping me company for the next year. My Harlequin Intrigue series, Brothers in Arms, will consist of four books - all 2011 releases. The brothers in question aren't related but they served in a military covert ops team together. Now one of their own is missing and suspected of treason. To be sure, they'll stumble across lots of love, danger and adventure as they search for their missing buddy.
Do read series? Are you ever disappointed in the subsequent books? Sometimes the waiting is the hardest part. I've read books 1 and 2, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, of Suzanne Collins' YA series and she's writing a third - and I just can't wait!
