Me: Stephanie! Come on in sweetie and get comfy on my virtual couch. It’s a good couch for napping and reading and chatting! Lol This is a little chat cause I’m running out of chocolate and need to get some more. It’s an emergency! *nods* But I do have half a sleeve left of Samoa Girl Scout cookies and I’ll share. 😀


Stephanie: Thanks for inviting me Kat, and for saving me some Girl Scout cookies! I completely understand about the chocolate emergencies, I’ve had a few myself.


Me: *munches a cookie* Tell me a bit about  your newest book releases please. Your novella Lonely Is The Night came out a month ago and you have a brand BRAND new book, new series just now with Surrender. samoa cookiesI’m frankly in awe. Please tell me you hate laundry or something. 😉


Stephanie: I love laundry!  When it is done by someone else of course. Lonely is the Night, which released earlier in March, is the 5th in the Shadow Force series—it’s a longer novella (about 35K) and it focuses on Reid and Grier, whose relationship ended on a bit of a cliffhanger in the previous book, Night Moves.

 Here’s the blurb for it:

A thrilling novella of betrayal and redemption from national bestselling author Stephanie Tyler.

Recently retired Delta Force Operator Reid Cormier utilizes his special skills by working black ops jobs all around the world with his former teammates and their wives. Reid’s career keeps him busy, but he can’t get his last job—or the woman involved—out of his head.

US Marshall Grier Vanderhall faked her own death without telling Reid of the plan first, and he couldn’t forgive her duplicity. But when Reid learns that Grier has been kidnapped by a dangerous ring of criminals, he drops everything and heads to New Orleans to rescue her. And while Reid knows that his skills make him the best option to get Grier back, he’s not sure if this mission will give them another chance—or get them both killed.

Includes a preview of the first Section Eight novel, Unbreakable.

Surrender, book one in the Section 8 series is all set and ready to greet the world on April 2nd.  I just handed in Unbreakable, which is book 2 in the Section 8 series and I’m just about to start the third book in the series!  Lots of romantic suspense coming your way!


Me: Are you working on anything you can tell us about now? *puppy dog eyes*


Stephanie: I have plans for a couple of the characters you’ve already met in Shadow Force  series.  But I do feel as though I’ve brought the Shadow Force series into the Section 8 series at this point, with Lonely.  So, no matter what it’s called, yes, you’ll keep seeing those characters.


And Sydney Croft has a new ACRO book coming out!  Into The Storm. Very excited about that! Into the Storm (ACRO, #6.5)


Me: *Couch Kermit flail* Me too!

Ok, hon…. We’re almost done but there’s still time for…..


The Book Tart Quickie

  • Do you collect anything?

From the looks of things it appears I collect dog toys.


  • Do you still have any music on vinyl or cassettes?

I would have to look in storage to see if there’s any cassettes I don’t know about, but I am pretty tidy about my music.


  • What do you have on your fridge door?

The handles 🙂 rotflol Those are handy 😛


  • What would be your dream sandwich?

One that had absolutely no calories but tasted like a 5 course meal!


  • What has been your worst haircut/style?

I have never had a bad haircut or hair style and all pictures have burned that could prove differently. Uh huh


  • Are you much of a daredevil?

Not unless you count waiting until the last minute to get things done as living dangerously.  Which it is!  *head/desk* I’m “good” at that myself.


  • If you could breed two animals together to defy the laws of nature what new animal would you create?

I thought long and hard on this, but everything that popped into mind made me think of everything that went wrong in “The Fly” so I think I would leave well enough alone.


  • Do you have any scars?

None I am willing to discuss 🙂


  • Do you prefer towel drying, blow drying or natural drying your hair?

Natural drying if I am not in a hurry. Better for the hair, and I’m a no fuss person.

 Me: Stephanie! Thank you so much for playing my silly games here at The Book Tart, 😀 You Rock!

For former Navy SEAL Dare O’Rourke, Section 8 was legendary. The son of one of its missing members, he grew up in the shadow of its secrets. All he knew was that it was a cabal of operatives discharged from branches of the military and reassigned to extremely dangerous, off-the-books international missions. And that their handler was as shrouded in mystery as the missions themselves.
Nothing can stop them. Nothing can break them.
Now the handler of Section 8 has given extreme orders to kill any remaining members, along with their families. Dare must save his long-lost half sister, Avery, whom he was never meant to meet. Determined to fight for their lives and find their missing father, Dare and Avery bring together those who are in danger because of their relationship to Section 8 for one last mission—to avenge their families and to survive.
