Fall into Colors: Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop with Kristine Cayne #AHHop




Welcome to stop #49 on the Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop!

To participate in the Grand Prizes, you MUST leave a comment with your email address.

To participate in my Prize Giveaways, you MUST fill out the rafflecopter.

Fall is a strange time of the year for me. I love the changing colors of the leaves, but I hate seeing the leaves fall. When I lived on the east coast, putting on a warm sweater and wrapping myself up in a big blanket to read seemed like heaven after the sweltering heat of the summer. But since I moved to the Pacific Northwest, I'm always cold. I wear sweaters almost all year long. Does that surprise you? It sure as heck surprised me! One good thing about living in the Seattle-area is that there are a lot of trees, and the stunning fall colors remind me of home, which happens to be Montréal, Canada.

The last quarter of Deadly Obsession and all of Deadly Addiction (the first two books in my Deadly Vices series) take place in an area just north of Montréal. Nic and Rémi, my two heroes, have homes in a fictional town called St. Xavier that borders the Blackriver Reservation. The reserve's namesake is a gorgeous river that borders St. Xavier and runs up into the reserve. The photo below is an old one of a place called Lac St. Denis in the Laurentian Mountains, sixty miles north of Montréal  It's very much how I imagine St. Xavier with the reserve across the river.



This photo represents the vast uninhabited sections of the Blackriver reserve where some very illicit behavior takes place in Deadly Addiction. Aren't the colors beautiful?



If you're looking for a book with sizzle and heat to keep you warm this fall, try DEADLY ADDICTION, the latest book in my Deadly Vices series.


A violent clash of cultures and nations tests the forbidden love between a Native American man and a white female cop. 

When beautiful police sergeant Alyssa Morgan enters his life, Rémi Whitedeer never expects her to upend it. Not only does she have his hormones in an uproar, she's also threatening to take the position he wants--Chief of Police for the Iroquois Blackriver Reservation. But Alyssa is more than a Barbie cop. Her ends-justifies-the-means philosophy, so different from his own, challenges Rémi on every level. With her sharp investigative skills and her fearlessness, she leads Rémi to confront bitter truths about his family and his standing as a man of mixed race within his tribe.

Tall hunky Rémi Whitedeer, of the panty-melting grin and the smoldering green eyes, flips Alyssa's world ass over teakettle. She's always had a laser-like focus on the job, but Rémi proves a constant distraction. His inner strength and sense of purpose strip away the winner-take-all attitude Alyssa wears like armor. Soon she's longing for more--a more that terrifies and intrigues her. If he finds out the fine line she'd walked while undercover, will he still want her? And will she ever find the courage to let him--or anyone--that far in?

When Alyssa and Rémi uncover a drug-fueled scheme involving a biker gang from Alyssa's past and a militant sovereigntist group led by Rémi's cousin, they are forced to choose between their growing love for each other and the lives they've worked so hard to build. Will Rémi and Alyssa have to leave everything behind--even their identities--for the chance of a future together?

  1. It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!
