“Chain of Command is a winner…” – USA Today, Happy Ever After blog


Retired marine Sawyer Cain can’t forget all he’s seen and lost, but he can try to start over. Opening a gun range with his closest friends is the first step toward a new life—one where he finally buries the guilt he can’t seem to shake. So much depends on the property he needs to buy…and the gorgeous but completely frustrating woman who refuses to sell it.

Hailey Thorne is done—with loss and with anything military, after the closest thing she had to an uncle died in Afghanistan. When Sawyer shows up on her porch he has military written all over him. He’s one more in a long line of people who wants the land she inherited, and suddenly he’s everywhere she goes. Hailey can’t get the broad-shouldered, dirty-talking, dead-serious man out of her head. Or her life.

Sawyer’s not above using his skills in the bedroom to try to convince her to sell, and Hailey is more than willing to let him. Their pleasure-only arrangement works…until emotions get in the way. But Sawyer has a secret he’s convinced will have Hailey hating him forever, and Hailey’s not willing to risk loving anyone she could lose.

A Chit Chat

I got together with good friend Jill Shalvis and had a little chat about alpha heroes over at USA Today’s Happily Ever After blog. You can check it out HERE.

Release Day!!

It’s release day! PLAYING DIRTY is out. If you like romantic suspense or action movies…or guys with gun…this is a book for you. The hero is former CIA and now an agent with a group called The Alliance. The heroine is the girl next door – literally. We have a missing scientist, a toxin going up for international sale, romance and, as I said earlier, dudes with guns. How can you say no??? Maybe the cover will tempt you:


“Few people write romantic suspense like Dimon, as this pulse-pounding, complex opening to Bad Boys Undercover proves.” -RT Book Reviews

You can buy it in print or ebook. Here are some places to try…you know, just in case you want to pick up 100 or so copies: Amazon,
B&N and iBooks

A Conversation & Contest With Jill Shalvis

My dear friend Jill Shalvis and I both have novella releases this month. We got together to talk about the books and the couples in them. You can check it out here and over on Jill’s blog HERE.

Before we get started, I thought it might be good for you to see inspiration photos we each used for our heroes. Here’s Jill’s for her hero Sawyer in MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY:


She’s so subtle. Here’s my inspiration for Ward in RUNNING HOT:

New Release In New Series!

t’s release day for RUNNING HOT!!!! One CIA hero, one MI6 heroine and one bad guy in Fiji. Add in a $1.99 price tag and, really, you should buy 100 copies. Right?

Well, if the price tag doesn’t entice you, how about the cover? Or the fact this is the kickoff novella for a new romantic suspense series? No serial killers or women being attacked – none. This is alpha dudes fighting bad guys and falling for smart women. How can you say no? [Note: I know you CAN but...]


Camped out at a resort bar in Fiji, CIA operative Ward Bennett may look like he’s on vacation but he’s really deep undercover, hunting a dictator on the run. Ward may be on the job, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time for the sexy female bartender. That is, until she drugs him.

When Tasha Gregory discovers the hottie on the barstool isn’t who he pretends to be, her MI6 training kicks into gear, and she has no choice but to take him out. Problem is, Ward’s not an easy man to put down for long. More than once, his interference almost blows her surveillance operation—and her ability to keep her heart to herself.

As the situation heats up, these two must decide whether they can trust one another—and quick. Working together might just make everyone safer, but getting close enough for comfort … might just get them killed.
