Book 2, Alpha Aviators Series

Working on a classified project, aerospace engineer Sabine Reynolds discovers a major miscalculation right before she’s forced to spend an evening out on the town with her bosses. Assured they’ll address it in the morning, Sabine enters a bar and is unprepared for the burning attraction between her and the owner, who pursues her for a night of pleasure. Set ablaze, she needs to bolt out of there before she breaks her good girl rule and gives in to her desire.

Navy Instructor Pilot and co-owner of JD’s Seafood Bar & Grille, Luke Hastings has his wings, but he’s no angel. He’s known for leaving a stream of broken hearts in his wake until Sabine lures him in with her sexy blushes and shy ways. Thinking he’s gone to heaven after meeting her, he soon learns they’re both working on the same project and someone’s after her. Hell, he doesn’t know which one is more dangerous, the ruthless killers chasing them or the sweet engineer threatening his heart.

Book 3 in the Alpha Aviators Series

Head Chef and owner of a booming restaurant, Gabby Merrick not only has to prepare for a hurricane, but she has a tough decision to make, too. As much as she wants to marry Andrew Hughes, something is stopping her. In her heart of hearts, she still can’t accept the fact that Ethan Hastings, the love of her life, is dead, killed on a mission over in Afghanistan.

And what’s making it worse, the bartender she just hired, looks remarkably like Ethan, but he can’t be Ethan. For one thing, the bartender is much older, and for another, Ethan’s dead, right? She’s either losing her mind, or she’s just as sane as any other normal, human being, and the guy’s Ethan. And if so, where in the heck has he been for the past three years?

About Tara L. Ames:

Tara L. Ames is a Michigan native with a penchant for creating highly sensual empowered stories about brave sexy men and strong-willed women. You can find her Alpha Aviators Series on most retail sites, coming this summer. Now living in Florida, she is actively writing another series in between taking care of her family, reading and enjoying the sun. Qigong/Tai Chi/Sudoku are her three biggest addictions besides chocolate.  

Interview with Tara L. Ames:

1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
I write contemporary romance with hot military heroes and sexy strong-willed heroines. The first three books in the ALPHA AVIATORS SERIES take place primarily in Key West and center around two friends, Luke Hastings and Michael Merrick and Michael's sister Gabby. Michael and Luke are both Naval Aviators, and once you meet them, you'll be drooling for more. Both men have a mission. Michael needs a distraction and what's better than a blue-eyed blonde with a hot bod' for rockin'? For Luke, sex is his number one flightpath  until a shy, sexy engineer pulls him off course and shakes his world upside down in more ways than one. Gabby, a chef and restaurant owner, is determined to find out if the bartender she just hired is in fact the love of her life who was reported dead in Afghanistan a few years back.  
2. How many books have you written? 
I've written three books and will be releasing THE SOUL SHAKER, book 4 in ALPHA AVIATORS SERIES, in April and a short story in an anthology titled You + Me, due out this summer. Which is your favorite? Hmm, that's a tough one. I love them all, but if I had to choose I would have to pick THE DREAM MAKER, book 3 in the series.

3. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
My best writing occurs in the morning. 

4. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?!!

5. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
In the family room. I can look out my window and see all kinds of wild birds:  storks, herons, egrets, Egyptian geese, and Mr. Nasty Laguna-LOL

6. Which of your characters would you like to meet in person and why? 
Another tough question. It would have to be Luke Hastings in THE HEART BREAKER, book 2 in the ALPHA AVAITORS SERIES. He's a bad teaser line for the series primarily refers to him. He may have his wings but he's no angel!

7. Who was your childhood hero?
My dad. He was always there when I needed him as a child.

8. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I'm finalizing THE SOUL SHAKER, book 4 in the ALPHA AVIATOR SERIES  and Ocean Rescue, a short story to be featured in You + Me Summer Anthology. Plus, I'm plotting a 3 book series centering around--Navy SEALS and another short story to be featured in another anthology this coming Fall.
