Celebrate the Small Things - Catch up edition

Hello, everyone!  I'm sorry to have missed the last few weeks of posts, but time simply got away from me.  I'm happy to report we're all doing well, and I've got lots to celebrate!

My latest book, Enticed by the Operative, releases in digital form today and in print on Tuesday!  It's the first book in my Doctors in Danger miniseries, so I'm pretty excited.  Here's the back cover blurb, if you're interested:

The lives of a beautiful surgeon and her DEA agent protector are at stake in this thrilling tale!  
On a medical mission to South America, Dr. Olivia Sandoval hardly expects to be threatened by a drug cartel. To save lives, Olivia agrees to transport drugs for them. When DEA agent Logan Murray appears as her partner-in-crime and rescuer, Olivia's relieved…and drawn to her knight in shining armor. 
Logan jumps at the chance to guard a beautiful woman and bring down a drug ring. After all, neither he nor Olivia are looking for forever love—just justice. But one kiss changes that as they go on the run. When taken hostage in the jungle, they must not only defeat the enemy—but also escape with their lives!
I'm also happy to report that I got the edits back for Dr. Do or Die, the second book in my Doctors in Danger miniseries, and I managed to write a fairly decent synopsis for the third book in the series--at least, I thought it was decent.  Keep your fingers crossed my editor likes it!
I have some book giveaways going on at Goodreads, and I have some guest blog posts next week (complete with giveaways!) so please watch this space--I'll post details as soon as the links go live!
It's a holiday weekend here, and Mister has Monday off.  I think we're going to spend some time with family, which should be nice.  We may even have a date and go get pedicures together--I had to twist his arm to get him to go the first time, but he realized he likes the way it makes his feet feel so it's been a lot easier to convince him to go again.
What about you?  Any big plans for the weekend?
If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week. This is a blog hop created by Vikki and now hosted by Lexa Cain, and it's one of my favorite blogging things to do.  I encourage you to check out her blog and the full list of participants, because who doesn't love reading about good things? 


  1. Pedicures do sound relaxing. I love going for a massage, but I only do that once or twice a year. Good luck with your books--great cover by the way.

  2. I think a doctors series sounds great. I love it when heroines are smart and independent. Congrats on all the wonderful things happening in your life. I hope you get a ton of romance fans! :)

  3. Hooray for your book. Hope you enjoy the weekend. :)

  4. Congratulations on the new book release, Lara. It sounds really good and I like the cover. A strong female doctor and a knight in shining armor, huh? Love it. :)

    Enjoy your weekend and the pedis with the Mister. Sounds like fun. Hugs. Eva

  5. Congratulations!!!!!!!

    Life does have a habit of getting away from us all!!!

    Enjoy the long weekend. Happy 4th!!!

  6. Congrats in the book release, and thanks for the suggestion of pedicures...I might see if my partner would be up for a little indulgence.

  7. You wrote a halfway decent synopsis? By yourself? Without going mad??? I am so in awe, I must go fan myself! (I hope your holiday weekend is going well!)

  8. Congrats on another release! You're amazing!

  9. Congrats on your latest release! It sounds like an exciting read. Synopses are no fun to write. Fingers crossed that your editor likes it! Enjoy the holiday weekend!
