Lost and Found (Tactical Solutions International Book 3) by Maggie Clare released yesterday in the Romantic suspense genre.
Dr. Lissa Morgan has had a crush on her best friend’s older brother since they were kids, but handsome, brooding Cam Taylor has never given her a second glance. When Cam unexpectedly shows up on Lissa’s doorstep bleeding and bruised, his personal life in shambles, things between them take a steamy turn. After an incredible weekend with the sweet, sexy doctor, Cam realizes what he’s been missing. But he’s run from intimacy his whole life, sure he doesn’t deserve a woman like Lissa. He’s doing her a favor by walking away – or so he tells himself. Frustrated and hurt by Cam’s distance, Lissa must nonetheless rely on his private security firm when an annoying admirer becomes a threat. The more time Cam spends with Lissa, the faster his defenses crumble. When the disturbed stalker finally makes his move, Cam will do whatever it takes to save the woman who’s slowly healing his wounded soul. Lost and Found is the third book in the Tactical Solutions International series but can be read as a stand-alone.

A Covid Summer
By Maggie Clare
After several years and several writing projects, I’ve learned to think about my creative life in terms of seasons. When I honor my personal, seasonal rhythm, my productivity over time is really good. It’s been an effective method. I create a lot of content in the fall when the days are crisp and my house is quiet, but I allow myself a gentler pace during the cold, dark days of winter. I spend a lot of time on the business side of things during spring, and summer, well, summer is usually my favorite season.
My summers have been filled with conferences, conventions, book tours, and signings. Being with other writers or my own fans helps me recharge. Summer is generally the season when I remember that although writing is my job now, I still find great joy in it.
This summer, things have been different, and Covid has taken a toll on my professional life. But, I live in coastal New England, a beautiful part of the world, especially in the summertime. For years, I’ve wanted to spend the entire summer here instead of traveling, and this year I didn’t have a choice. So, I’ve been trying to look for the gift in this challenging time.
I call this practice reframing, and I’ve gotten quite good at it. Before my writing career happened, I worked in education. One of my favorite parts of the day was greeting the children outside in the morning and welcoming them to school. Of course, this meant standing outside, for the better part of an hour, in all kinds of weather, including the bitter cold. I’m a sunshine loving, beach going, hot yoga (emphasis on hot) practicing gal. As I’ve already mentioned, summer is my favorite. Needless to say, I’d wake up on those chilly mornings feeling less than enthusiastic and frankly a little grumpy. Then, I read an article about scientists who worked in the arctic, and just how many calories they had to consume in a day to keep their body temperatures normalized. Apparently, the human body burns more calories in the cold. This was life-changing. Surely, my calorie burning efforts would earn me an extra cocktail at the very least. Frame-shift!
It’s been a bit more difficult to frame-shift during Covid. This is an uncertain time for all of us, but I’m doing my very best to navigate through it. I’ve been appreciating the longer days of summer, the slower pace, and the ability to spend hours outdoors. I’ve imagined I’m on a writing retreat in my own backyard. I’ve let go of my expectations. Without them, I’ve been free to embrace the season in a new way.
