Seelie has a new release today that we wanted to share with you.
Infamy. An evil or wicked act. Terrorists bent on revenge have found a way to make planes disappear from the sky, without a trace. And when one winds up buried in a Wisconsin cornfield, it’s a race against time to rescue the passengers from certain death.
When international law attorney Sheikh Harun Ali is lured to the Amazon and warned of a frightening plot against the United States, he and his wife, Marianne Benson, enlist the assistance of their neighbors, covert agent Cade Matthews and his wife, Constitutional Law Professor Janet MacLachlan. Ultimately, these feisty lawyers are pushed to the wall, desperate to find a plane that has been buried in an unknown cornfield, the passengers still on board. The terrorists’ hatred for the Alis is absolute—the Alis once left their organization bankrupt and broken—but they hate America more. And their fiendish games are just beginning. They are seeking a much bigger prize, one that could destroy a nation and possibly the world. An act that will live in infamy.
Cade grasped his water bottle with both hands. “Before his brother died, he said eight words.”
Harun nodded. “They are going to make American planes disappear.”
Dianna’s eyes grew wide.
Anders rubbed a hand over his face, then through his long dark hair. His
deep green eyes stared up at the ceiling of the plane. “Fucking hell. Nine-eleven all over again.”
“That is our fear,” Harun said. “However, so many precautionary measures are in place in this country, simply hijacking planes and flying them into buildings is no longer easy. They must have a different plan.”
Cade emitted a heavy sigh. “And that is what we need to figure out. What exactly do those eight words mean? For example, he did not specify that the planes would disappear in America, which could mean that they will disappear abroad or over oceans.”
Anders sat up straight. “And disappear could mean many things. Crash. Hijack. Pull a Malaysia. How many ways can you make a plane disappear?”

An Interview with Seelie Kay:
Q. Why do you write romance?
Because I am fascinated by the games people play to find and secure a lasting relationship, which is not always love. There’s the chase, the courtship, the falling, the surrender. That’s what I try to capture in my stories.
Q. Do you prefer a certain type of romantic hero?
I adore smart, dashing gentlemen who aren’t afraid to live on the edge. They can be a bad boy, a billionaire, a prince, or a secret agent. That hint of danger just hooks me! However, I also love strong, independent women who aren’t afraid to fight for what they want, even love.
Q. Why did you write “Infamy?”
The characters featured in this story—Sheikh Harun Ali and his wife, Marianne Benson–are both lawyers who focus on international law and their practice is devoted to compensating the victims of terrorism. So I was looking for a new hook, something on the horizon that could pose a serious threat to the world and in particular, the United States. I found it in an article on advances in “cloaking” technology or making planes disappear. For years, we have had stealth planes that do not appear on radar, but can be seen in the air if anyone is looking. I wanted to take that a step further: What if someone created a means to actually cloak a plane and hide it from everyone’s view? What if that technology fell into the hands of terrorists? And “Infamy” was born.
Q. How does your former profession as a lawyer impact your writing?
After 30 years, the law and the legal world are so firmly embedded in my brain that I can’t flush them out. That has become the lens through which I view the world and that naturally guides my characters and plots. Little peculiarities that I have witnessed in lawyers and the law always work their way into my stories.
Q. Any plans to write outside the romance genre completely?
Actually, I ghostwrite non-fiction for other professionals—doctors, lawyers, financial gurus—so I dip my toes into a lot of different genres. However, I have been itching to write a book about a relative who founded a religious cult. I researched it for years and found a lot of information that had been buried. I have a pile of paper a foot high. Someday, I need to go through it carefully and start writing. I have the interest, just not the time.

Cameron Allie is back with The Winter Storm
Can a holiday miracle save their relationship?
With his relationship on the rocks and a wicked winter storm keeping him from his destination, Shane wonders if his relationship with Vicky is in its final days. Can a holiday miracle save them?
Shane and Vicky had plans to meet their friends at a secluded little cabin for some winter skiing fun. After months of stress and fighting, Shane hopes a weekend away will do their relationship some good. He’d hoped for hot cocoa near a roaring fireplace and maybe some hot make up sex.
But after getting a late start, losing the GPS signal, and getting lost in a snow storm, all his hopes are dashed. Things between them are tenser than they’ve ever been, and soon they find themselves at the mercy of a hotel clerk with a very limited selection of available rooms.
Can Shane find a way to reach Vicky through the frustration and anger? Can he find a way to save their relationship?
After driving in circles for over an hour and fifty-five minutes of listening to his fiancée bitch about how he had gotten them lost, Shane pulled into the nearest hotel parking lot. He’d barely taken the car out of gear before she hopped out, slamming the passenger side door in her wake. Hands flexing around the steering wheel, Shane closed his eyes and counted to ten in an attempt to get a grip on his anger. The last time he’d responded to her jabs about his bad sense of direction, it had turned into a screaming match followed by the silent treatment for ten minutes. If he hadn’t been so bothered by how he’d yelled at her, he would have been thrilled by the quiet.
He’d barely gotten to the number four before he heard a loud bang, as Vicky thumped the trunk in an aggressive demand that he pop it open. Gritting his teeth, he pulled the tab for the trunk and climbed out of the car. Vicky, with her luggage in hand, stomped across the parking lot toward the hotel’s front doors.
Hurrying, Shane grabbed his things from the trunk, and after locking up the vehicle he followed in her path, his feet crunching snow with each step.
The snow had been coming down steadily for hours. At one point during their trip they’d been stuck behind a snow plough. Barely going thirty, they’d wasted a lot of time on one small chunk of highway. They’d rented a lodge with a group of friends for a winter ski trip, and they should have arrived more than two hours ago. Vicky had gotten caught up at work, and already bickering, they’d been late leaving their home. Between that, the wicked snow storm, and the lost GPS signal, they’d gone from being late to being stranded.
Shane stopped in the doorway to brush the snow from his hair and shoulders.
White Christmas lights decorated the lobby. Garlands were wrapped around the railing of a nearby stairwell. In the breakfast area, fat Santa Claus dolls decorated the tables, and a big Christmas tree sat in the corner without any presents. Someone needed to tell the staff that Christmas had ended three days ago.
Already standing at the front desk, Vicky bellowed back at him, “Are you coming?”
Deliberately taking his time, Shane made a show of wiping his shoes on the mat. Even across the lobby he was sure he heard Vicky’s aggravated sigh. When he approached the counter, the clerk asked cheerfully, “How can I help you?”
“Someone,” Vicky said while glaring at Shane, “got us lost.”
