Aloha to Scarlett Cole and UNDER FIRE (Love Over Duty) - With Giveaway!


I spotted Scarlett Cole last week at RWA in Orlando .... and today we celebrate UNDER FIRE, Book 1 in her new series Love Over Duty ... 

Hot, hard-bodied Sixton Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy “brothers” start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.

Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a “miracle” medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa’s trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her—or die trying.

When Scarlett isn't writing, she spends her time reading, hoarding mason jars, and working out to off-set an epic sour candy habit. Having travelled the world for work and fun, Scarlett is a citizen of both Britain and Canada. A true city-dweller, she considers Toronto and Manchester home and likes to set her books in vibrant locations such as Miami and Los Angeles.

  1. I have cases of mason jars. I have used them for canning food and have cupboards full of full ones. I have some antique ones in green, blue, and clear. I have some with candy, some with pushpins, and several with other odd things in them.

  2. Mason jars are a rarity here. Only just starting to come into their own.

  3. I need to get some because I've been hearing a lot about mason jar salads.

  4. Not where I have a whole lot but I have a few that have candies, safety pins, buttons etc. I'd love to get into canning foods though .

  5. I did try my hand at canning. I decided it was too much work.

  6. No Mason Jars. But do love Hershey's Kisses.

  7. I have some old ones from my Mom's family home - my favorite is blue glass with a glass top that is held on by a metal contraption. I mostly use it for Trader Joe's sunflower seeds that I sprinkle on salad.

  8. We have a few very old Mason jars from Hubby's family, displayed on a kitchen shelf. I haven't used Mason jars for any practical purpose, though.

  9. I have about a 100 mason jars sitting around! I used to can and now use them for other stuff.

  10. I have some in my kitchen and put large utensils in them.

  11. I have a Mason Jar that is also a Sippy Cup and my friend who still cans and gives me homemade pickles in the jars.

    By the way I read Under Fire in one day.....I really enjoyed it.

  12. I have them full of dried apricots, prunes, raisins etc. Pretty to look at and delicious to snack from :)

  13. No Mason Jars.
