I had a terrific time writing for the project, which more than one site has noted as "ground-breaking." Those who know my writing will find "Courting Trouble" very much in the realm of my Finders Keepers in tone and tempo. I've not been able to read other offerings so I can't comment as to their storylines but the list of authors alone is fantastic. I feel blessed (and more than a tad intimidated) to be in such august company!


REBELS AND LOVERS, March 2010: Book 4 in the Dock Five Universe, from Bantam Books and Linnea Sinclair—

Her mind screamed no. Her body and heart considered what was right and rational, and pushed those all away. She held his gaze for a moment longer than was prudent. “Let me get a beer.”


  1. That is one gorgeous cover. Congratulations, Linnea!

  2. Gorgeous cover! I'll go link.

  3. Hey, wait just a doggone minute, why isn't Linnea's name plastered on the front in big words too?

  4. Mega congratulations, Linnea. This is fantastic.

    I saw a huge cardboard display cabinet with all your Bantam novels, 6 abreast as I recall, in my local Barnes and Noble today.

    Well done!
