Welcome to our next edition of the Baltimore Book Festival (BBF) (September 25th-27th) author spotlight.
Nancy is a member of the Maryland Romance Writers group (@marylandromance) and a local Maryland writer. She specializes in Romantic Suspense, hot heroes and kick-butt heroines.
In her series, Shadows and Light, (In the Shadow of Greed, In the Shadow of Evil, In the Shadow of Malice, In the Shadow of Pride, In the Shadow of Vengeance) you meet the McNeil family.
~ Meet five Irish brothers, all sworn to protect and serve – and the smart women who help them take down the terrorists gunning for their family. Lock up your heart: when it comes to love, the sexy McNeils know how to walk this beat. ~
No kidding! *fans self*
Just when you fall for one brother, another comes along to steal your heart away.
Now Toni and I have introduced you to Nancy and her amazing characters before, even the villains. In fact, she brought her villains, who don’t think they are bad guys at all (Oh YES they are), to visit our blog recently. Read the interview here, and decide for yourself.
And make sure you have you’re running shoes on.

It’s just a suggestion.

The best part of Nancy’s books are the sweet romances and she firmly believes in giving her characters a happily ever after. Even if she does make them work for it. The Shadow and Light series is full of suspense, tension and hot heroes. Passions simmer and flare, in and out of the bedroom, and like real siblings the McNeil brother’s don’t always agree. (Coming from a large family myself, I really loved this aspect of the series.)
I can’t say I have a favorite book, I really do love them all, but if I had to choose, a certain Special-Agent-In-Charge, Luke “Mac” McNeil, definitely holds a special place in the hot heroes department. His flash-point temper is no match for fiery Lexie Trevena’s no-nonsense fighting spirit. Together they make sparks and I still feel the burn from that hot read. Check out our review here.
Want to read more from Nancy? You’re in luck. On November 9th, 2015 she has a new release coming out. A 4-Book Anthology with Crimson Romance called Modern Magic: A Quartet of Fractured Fairy Tales.
Come meet Nancy at her panel – Get Their Pulses Pounding: Pacing The Romantic Suspense Novel – on Saturday, September 26th from 4 pm – 5 pm at the Maryland Romance Writers tent (see MAP).
I asked Nancy what she is looking forward to most at BBF.
“I love interacting with readers!! It is such a thrill to talk to them and learn what they love about reading. I also love the panel discussions. It’s like a mini conference and I walk away charged with new energy to write.”
And what is reading without desert! Here’s Nancy’s (with a recipe no less – YUM!): Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Fudge Icing.
So if you’re looking for some good romantic suspense suggestions before BBF, I suggest heading over to Nancy’s website to find all the places to pick up her series. And for a limited time on Amazon, Shadows and Light is on SALE!
Warning, once you start, you won’t be able to stop!
If you want to buy them local, they will be available from Ukazoo Books at the Maryland Romance Writer’s tent during BBF. Check out the amazing romance line-up all weekend long at the Baltimore Book Festival and be sure to meet Nancy to get your books signed.
Hope to see you at the festival!
