My husband and I have had the privilege to visit beautiful Cabo a few times. While we tend to prefer the more rural landscape of mountains, forests, and even glaciers, this seaside village is one of our favorite places to relax and unwind.

The beaches are beautiful and the sunsets are romantic as well as amazing. I particularly like to shop among the many local traders in the various flea markets.  They are friendly and enthusiastic about bartering and enjoyed the banter as much as we did. Though I wonder exactly who made the best deal when I walked away with beautiful hand-made blankets for all five of my children!

The local taverns are fun, boisterous and we love to relax with a frosty drink and authentic Mexican cuisine.  I love to try new foods and am never disappointed when I find a new favorite to make at home. Be warned, one of us has been known to get drawn into a tequila shot line while dancing around the bar.  If this happens to you, take heart, they usually get more on you then they do in you!

With all the fun and excitement available around town, I have to admit I truly love just hanging out at the beach and swinging in a hammock as I watch my husband snorkel and the waves roll in. It’s during these quiet moments that I think about all the romances I’ve read as a young girl  with a dashing pirate preparing to kidnap the innocent heroine. I let my imagination run wild and wonder … what if? I have more than a few stories I’ve dreamed up with a beautiful damsel in distress on the high seas, to keep me busy writing for years.

When you bet your heart in Vegas ... the jackpot is forever.

Forever Mine by B.A. McIntosh

For Emma Montgomery, family is everything. After spending years with neglectful adoptive parents, she’s finally been reunited with her sister and is following her dreams to become a painter when she witnesses the abduction of Marco Malone. Marco is the hero that had returned her to her family and had broken her heart. He is asking her to trust him so he can protect her but who will protect her heart?

Marco had spent the last two years avoiding Emma to keep her safe. His family was connected to the mob and being a private investigator brought danger and harm to anyone he cared about. With Emma at risk, he has no choice but to bring her into his world as he propels them on a journey that demands they learn to trust each other and their hearts.


Forever Mine Excerpt:

“Uh, Marco?” Tony tapped him on the shoulder.
His brother pointed in the direction of the lounge entrance on the other side of the casino. “Buddy, I think you’ve got more problems than you realize.”
A stunning woman walked with confidence, head held high, her arm linked through Frank’s. Her dress clung to her like it was glued on. The color was so close to her skin tone it made it look like she was practically naked.
Sweet heaven above!
Marco’s heartbeat raced like the engine in a Ferrari at the Grand Prix while certain anatomy south of his zipper felt hard as concrete.
A slim, toned, and tan long leg emerged from the high slit on the side of the dress with her every step. Her pale blonde hair hung in loose shimmering waves down to her delectably rounded derriere drawing the attention of every red-blooded man in the damn place.
Marco searched the room and immediately noticed that more than a couple of men were looking in the direction Tony was. He recognized her instantly.
Holy Hell! Emma?
She usually had her hair tied up in a ponytail and he hadn’t realized how gorgeous and long it really was or that she had the most fantastic body he’d ever seen.
He fought the urge to run over and throw his jacket around her, slumping in his seat instead. How in the world was he going to keep her safe? How was he going to continue to maintain his distance and fight his attraction to her? Young, student Emma wasn’t a problem but this siren was an entirely different matter. Shit!
Tony waved a hand in front of his face. “Hello? Marco?”
Marco heard his brother speaking but it was beyond him to make sense of a single word, especially not when he watched Frank emerge from the lounge alone.
Was the man out of his mind? Marco shot up from his stool like someone had taken a cattle prod to him. Had Frank just left the exquisite Emma unescorted in a lounge full of men that were drinking and looking for a good time in Vegas? Oh, no. This shit just wasn’t happening. He stormed toward the lounge, Tony's laughter ringing in his ears. Life just got infinitely more complicated.
