Cover Reveal for "Wild Heat" Series

Most of you know I've been writing two series, alternating between the Scottish Highlands and the Gulfside of Florida. After a few months of writing with a Scottish burr, I have a real problem switching over to male-oriented English. And if you think men don't talk differently at work where it's mostly other guys, try working in a male dominated environment for 26 years. Their word choices will take the curl out of your hair or melt the polish off your fingernails. So, hopping back and forth in language styles takes some strong discipline and lots of rewriting.
My series set in Clearwater, Florida in a fictitious fire and marine rescue station was kicked off with the novella "Santa Wore Leathers" introducing you to many of the characters and the operations of the station in the "Wild Heat" series. Yesterday, HarperImpulse did a cover reveal for the three books, even though they're not all written yet.

Ahhhhhhhh, the covers for Vonnie Davis’s new Wild Heat series are in and we love them! We are definitely big fans of anything involving a fireman. Is it the uniforms that make them so sexy? Or is it the hard bodies, heavy equipment and big hoses? Whatever it is, they are definitely on the list of Top Ten Sexiest Professions and we are so excited to share these books with you.

Book 1 in the ‘Wild Heat’ series – the hottest new fireman trilogy of the fall!

Cassie Wolford has crushed on fireman Quinn Gallagher ever since he moved to Clearwater three years ago. There’s just one problem: he’s always made it clear dating is out of the question. But once a Wolford sets their sights on someone, that person doesn’t stand a chance! Cassie decides it’s time for Quinn to get a dose of his own medicine… and sets out to show him what he’s missing!

Quinn knows only too well what Cassie’s up to but he can’t give her what she wants. He isn’t good for anyone, much less someone as sweet as his angel. Fighting her off hurts like hell, but giving her false hope of a happy ever after would be damn cruel. That’s why he has to leave Clearwater.

Unfortunately, someone from his past has different ideas and when Cassie’s life is threatened this former CIA operative is staying put, prepared to crawl through hell and back to keep her safe. And it looks like he might just have to.

I'm currently writing and rewriting this book, trying to get a better handle on Barclay Gray, who's known at Station Thirty-two as the Ice Man...mainly because around Molly, he's not so icy at all.

These books will be available first in eBook format and months later in paperback formats.

WOOEY Vonnie - those are definitely some gorgeous covers and hawt hot hawt. Good luck with many sales, my friend. And, as a sideline, I finished A Highlanders Obssession and loved it. Great work!

Thank you for the cover complement. Did it seem odd reading a heroine with your name? Gram, my skinny alter-ego, is in book two too, creating her own magic.

Thanks, Angela. You never know what the publisher will give you, so I was very pleased.
