Romantic Suspense

It only takes a second, a fraction of a second, to forever change your life. That moment happened to me years ago. I did something you can’t take back, and I’d do it again. It’s a secret I’ll take to my grave—which is probably sooner rather than later—and that’s okay. I live with my choices.

Three things I’ve learned—bad things happen to good people, life isn’t fair, and the bad guy doesn’t get the girl. And I’m most definitely the bad guy.

I’ve always made my own decisions. I’ve never apologized for them, and I never will. Regret is an emotion I’ve never had to face.

Until now. Until her.

She once told me that what I did, killing people for a living, wasn’t good for my soul. I told her I was beyond saving. The truth is that I’m not worth saving. Not anymore.

But when I look in her eyes, I wish I was the man she deserves, the man she loves.

My brother.

TURN ON A DIME – KADE’S TURN is a companion novel to book two of The Kathleen Turner Series: TURN TO ME and is not meant to be read as a standalone novel. It is strongly recommended to read TURN TO ME prior to KADE’S TURN.

Turn On A Dime - Blane’s Turn:

I love to write and am thrilled to be a part of the Amazon Montlake family. My debut novel, NO TURNING BACK, is the first book in The Kathleen Turner Series. I write about things I love to read myself - a heroine who could be a neighbor or best friend; two men who each portray their own version of darkness and light, each vying for her affection; and a story that focuses as much on the characters as it does the suspense. NO TURNING BACK, TURN TO ME, TURNING POINT, OUT OF TURN and POINT OF NO RETURN currently comprise The Kathleen Turner Series.  There is also a companion novel to NO TURNING BACK entitled TURN ON A DIME - BLANE'S TURN. TURN ON A DIME - KADE'S TURN releases August 25, 2014.  My new series, The Tangled Ivy Trilogy starts with the release of IN HIS SHADOW, set to release December 16, 2014.

As for me, I've been reading romance novels since I was way too young to read such things, have an unhealthy obsession for all things Doctor Who, prefer Pepsi to Coke and Absolut to both, think men who drink girly cocktails are wusses, have learned to never stop believing in my beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and can recite the entire scripts of When Harry Met Sally and Apollo 13. George Washington is cool, Bon Jovi still rocks the house, and Bruce Willis is the ultimate alpha-male hero. Most of all, romance never, ever gets old.

Now The Kathleen Turner Series is complete, has it been difficult to let go of Kathleen, Blane & Kade considering they have been part of your life for so long?

It has been hard letting go. Kathleen, Blane, and Kade changed my life. They will always be special to me. Writing KADE'S TURN was great - one final glimpse into the characters that I hope readers will enjoy, too. In the new series I'm writing, I have put little Easter eggs where observant readers will catch glimpses of Kathleen, Blane, and Kade. I hope followers of the series enjoy those little tidbits.

So,  who within your family reads your books?

My husband reads some of them. He's not a fiction reader, so I don't ask him to read them all.  My eldest sister reads them, as does my mother and my aunt.  My daughter WANTS to read them, but she's restricted until she's at least 21. lol

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and who'd be your travel companion?

I'd want to go to Bora Bora. I've wanted to go there since I was fifteen. For a travel companion, reality says I'd love to be with my husband, but if it's all fantasy and I can pick whomever I want, then I'd want Benedict Cumberbatch. ;-)

Which authors' books do you read yourself and recommend?

I love paranormal and urban fantasy so I like Charlaine Harris, JR Ward, and Kresley Kole. I also love Kele Moon's books and Jennifer L. Armentrout.  For a break from romance, I read Lee Child, Tom Clancy, and Vince Flynn.

In His Shadow, the first book in The Tangled Ivy Trilogy is due for release in December. Which actor & and actress can you see playing Devon and Ivy? 

I had Daniel Craig in mind as I wrote Devon. For Ivy, I saw Kate Hudson.

5 * Secrets and Sacrifices - Arc review
If you've read No Turning Back and Turn to Me, you'll want to read Kade's Turn. It's the second companion book in the Kathleen Turner Series. An opportunity to experience Kade's perspective, and what an insight that is!

Kade Dennon is a ruthless, cynical, arrogant and dangerous man. Not how you normally describe the guy that ended up winning the girl's heart. He manages to keep his caring and protective side well hidden from view. Kathleen somehow manages to scratch away the surface of his steely facade to reveal a man who has a weakness for her. In turn, Kade doesn't foresee Kathleen seeing beyond his piercing blue eyes.

Blane and Kade's relationship is put under the spotlight too... secrets are kept and sacrifices are made. An incident acts as the catalyst to a chain of events that in turn shapes the future for both brothers. The guys may not look physically alike, but we see many shared, family character traits, making them more similar than previously thought. I've always loved the interaction between the two of them and Tiffany sure takes that to an interesting level in this book ;-)

I now appreciate and love Kade more than before, understanding why Kathleen became attracted to this complex guy and why he is drawn to her. For the record I am still very much a Blane Kirk badge wearing girl. A fact that hasn't prevented me from thoroughly enjoying this book. I hope that those left disappointed after reading Point of No Return will take a chance and re-read this part of the story from Kade's point of view.

I'm now filled with sadness. Sad because it is the end of an era. Two years of living the highs and lows in the lives of Kathleen, Blane and Kade have come to an end :'(

Lastly, Whether you are Team Kade, Team Blane or a fence sitter, both Kade's Turn and Blane's Turn offer fans of The Kathleen Series new dimensions into our favourite characters lives. Therefore, I highly recommend both books as “Must read” add-ons to this fabulous series.
