Nik Baudin discovers an identical twin – one he never knew existed. Taking over his brother’s identity, he becomes Special Agent Maximilian & gets embroiled in a case where high-jacked young girls & trafficking of illegal drugs endangers his life & that of Max’s gorgeous partner.

Identical twins – they never knew the other existed.

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you saw a person who’s the spitting image of you? Say you were in a Starbucks lineup and the person ahead turns and whoa… you’re looking into a mirror.

I’ve heard about identical twins being separated at birth and when they find each other later in life, it turns out that they tend to have very similar tastes about many things. For instance, they might cut their hair in the same style, or wear comparable clothes. To be contrary, I wrote my characters with completely opposing personalities, dressing in opposite styles, with differing tastes in most things. The one similarity would be their love for the truth.

Every time I start a new book, I have a reason to pick either the theme or sometimes it’s the characters that resonate and start a plot forming in my head. In the case for my book called Special Agent Maximilian, Nik and Max are very special people from my past. They weren’t twins but when the idea came to me, I decided to use that twist so I could add both as heroes in the same story.

I’d never want to leave either out because I have wonderful memories with these two guys. They were young boys growing up with a single dad who used to bring them for Sunday dinner every week. This pretty much went on for over a dozen years,

They were my wonderful Sunday boys, and I loved having them walk through the door, always happy to be there and full of energy, hugs, and smiles. It made our family Sundays perfect. Especially for my own little boy who loved being spoiled and played with by these two rumbustious fellows.

When I decided to write a book about twin brothers, I knew immediately which names I would use and to whom I would dedicate the book.


In this electrifying romantic suspense set in the steamy streets of New Orleans, Lieutenant Commander Nik Baudin accidentally meets up with an identical twin he never knew existed. When his brother Max goes missing, Nik assumes his identity as Special Agent Maximilian. This gives him access to FBI files making it easier to arrest the gangsters who attacked his brother and to stop their trafficking of underage girls. Being that Nik has specialized commando training, he’s the perfect man for the job – that’s if his PTSD doesn’t kick in and leave him cowering in a corner.

Special Agent Maya Barnes can’t believe it when she spots her partner, Max Foster, wandering along the French market without a care in the world. Since he’d been beaten and had gone missing weeks earlier, they all believed him dead. There’s only one problem… though this man might look exactly like the missing agent, she knows differently. In all the years they’ve worked together, she’s never wanted to have mind-blowing sex with her partner before.

Three for the price of… ahh FREE??

With Valentine’s day past, it’s a lazy time of year when not much is happening and so…. good time for a sale.

The three books in this collection are some of my favorites, plus I always liked the sexy guy on the cover… and the title. I remember when I decided I should start bundling my books and then price them lower. It seemed like a great idea at the time, but it soon fizzled out right after I finished promoting them and saw them slip back into oblivion.

Yet many other authors were following the same plan, right? How could it lose? I knew our group here at Authors’ Billboard had a very healthy number of big box collections, and they were doing great. Hells bells, I’m the leader of the Unforgettables Series and had first-hand information on how much the readers enjoyed these fabulous buys.

Of course, when you have nine different bestselling authors often submitting full-length novels and boxing them up to sell for 99 cents, that’s hard to beat. You can see what I mean on the books page here on this website.

But… I guess competition is what we all have to deal with in this crazy business, and so I stick my nose out of my safety zone every so often, slap one of my personal sets out there, and hope for the best.

Kindle Instant Book Reviews – Special Agent Booker – (99 cents)

I’ve put Special Agent Booker on sale for 99 cents this month and wanted to share this bargain with you.

When I came up with the premise for this book, I remember it seemed to write itself.

Number one, I had just returned from Waikiki in Hawaii and was thrilled with my vacation. I had been a few times before but never actually saw it through the eyes of a writer, creating a story.

I had come up with the idea of one person living with more than one father figure. In today’s world where we often have two men bringing up a child, I knew I had to play with that idea and make it fun. I found that while conceiving Booker’s three dads, they made me laugh. Hope you get the same reaction when you meet them too

Anyone who’s visited the island knows that they have ABC convenience stores on every corner. One day while I was shopping, I saw a young native girl appearing upset and watching out the window. From what I could see, she was trying to hide. Turns out it was just from her brother. When he showed up, all was fun and laughter.

But…having a wild imagination, I took that vision home with me, created a lot more drama, and began plotting a scene for my heroine where there was a teen in trouble. Then I knew I wanted her to do this for more than one young person and Agent Alia took shape.

Also… while I was there, I saw a program on the television about terrorists infiltrating an American neighborhood and my imagination again took off. I could see the action, but I could also see that because of the way some people look, they might be mistaken for the bad guys. So… in my story, I fleshed out the idea that not everyone should be hated because of the difference in the color of their skin or beliefs.

It was a fun book to produce, one I hope you’ll enjoy.
