Book Blurb:


A desperate search…


Schoolteacher Gracie James has never seen more danger than her kindergarten grade classroom, but when she goes searching for her missing sister, she’s thrown into a world of sex, crime…and passion. Following a hot lead, she sneaks onto a stranger’s boat—and gets caught. Their one-sided conversation convinces her of two things. One: the guy is seriously sexy. Two: he knows something about her sister. Oh, yeah. And did she mention he’s sexy?
And a sizzling attraction…


Jake Alexander, former cop, is staking out a yacht brimming with criminal activity, for an insurance company, when a woman, dressed to kill and totally irresistible, stumbles into his dangerous undercover op. If he hadn’t tackled her, she’d have tottered straight onto the questionable yacht in those ridiculous high heels. Then she’d be dead. Or worse. As much as he’d like to kick her off his boat, he can’t risk her going off on some hare-brained scheme—but he can’t keep her around to muck up his job. Oh, yeah. And did he mention she’s distracting as hell?
Lead to dangerous desire…


Unfortunately, she has a keen mind of her own. And a body any man would die for. Jake’s attempt to keep Gracie safe quickly morphs into a reluctant alliance. And a whole lot more… But Gracie finds herself knee deep in more trouble than she bargained for, with secrets revealed and the criminals coming after her. Unless they find a way to trust each other, they’re finished. Oh, yeah. And did they mention they’re in love?

*GUEST POST* 
How I came to writing or how writing came to me, and the richness of the life that followed… 

Life takes us on some strange journeys. Just when we think we have it all mapped out, a detour on the road ahead beckons and you have to choose between the safe direct paved road to your destination or the winding, rutted path that will take you thorough uncharted territory.

I was a high school principal, fully immersed in a career in education when that winding road beckoned to me. I made a snap decision to retire early, a week into a new school year when I realized education no longer held its appeal. 

But how to spend my days? 

I had always had a burning desire to write and decided to dabble and see if I could do it. I had been writing dry and dusty submissions for education funding for years and had an excellent knowledge of language from my love of reading and study over many years. 

My journey along that not so rutted path has brought amazing richness into my life. 

How you may ask? 

I wrote a book. That book was accepted. I wrote another book… it too was accepted. 

My second book became a bestseller. I kept writing. I submitted more books. I got more contracts. I edited books for other writers and discovered I had a knack for helping them improve their work while keeping their own voice. 

I had no strict schedules. All from the comfort of a chair overlooking the ocean in my living room.
And all of this in just over two short years. 

So how did this foray into uncharted territory enrich my life? 

The people I met. My new ‘friends’. Writers with a burning desire to tell a story, to make a difference. People like me. Other people who understood why I spent a lot of time thinking and dreaming. Connecting with readers who escape their own ruts by reading my exotic locations and romance. 

Writing words. Creating lives. Solving imaginary problems. 

Through my writing and editing, I made connections all over the world and many of these connections have turned into true lifelong real friendships. 

So embrace change. Take risks and your life will be richer for it.
Gracie James does the very same thing in Dangerous Desire. She steps right out of her comfort zone as a kindergarten teacher and we see her grow in the process in her own exotic locale. Luxury settings seem to have become a common theme in my books from tropical to Mediterranean Islands, to the luxury but fictional Midas motor cruiser in the Dangerous Desire. Now that I am a writer I can travel anywhere I want in my imagination every day. 

Come along and enjoy Dangerous Desire and see what risk taking can do! And don’t forget to enter the draw for the matching jewelry and gift card.

Annie Seaton lives with her husband, and ‘Bob’ the dog and two white cats in a house next to the beach on the east coast of Australia. She sits in her writing chair, gazing at the ocean and writing stories.  Their two children are grown and married and she loves spending time gardening, walking on the beach and spoiling her two grandchildren. She has always been fascinated by all things romantic and has found her niche in life writing romance novels, ranging through contemporary, historical, suspense and paranormal…but all with romance of course.

Her love of reading and history began at an early age and she was a child who always carried a book (or two) no matter what she was doing. Several of her favourite books were confiscated from beneath her desk by teachers who had no understanding of her capacity to read while she was doing her schoolwork!
Her working life has seen her through several major career changes and Annie has now retired from the world of full time work and has fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a published author.

Annie’s debut full length novel, Holiday Affair, a contemporary romance set in the South Pacific was released as part of Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence line in March 2012 and has been a best seller on both Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. The sequel Italian Affair was released in June 2013, and will be followed shortly by Outback Affair. Annie has more books being released in 2013 and 2014 with Entangled Publishing in the Bliss, Entangled Ignite and Covet imprints.

In appreciation of the supportive author community, Annie has written a book on promotion to share the secrets of her success: Promotional Tips and Tricks for Aspiring Authors in the Digital Landscape.
