I went to the RT Convention and this happened…


I won the Reviewers’ Choice Award of rest romantic suspense of 2016!!! This pretty award is now home and on the bookshelf in my office. I plan to stare at it a lot today.

Release Day!!!

It’s release day!!! THE ENFORCER is out and I’m so excited. This is the second book in the Games People Play series. It completely stands alone. You don’t need to read THE FIXER first, but please do.


Security expert Matthias Clarke hunts down people who don’t want to be found. His latest prey: the sole survivor of a massacre that killed his brother years ago. Kayla Roy claimed she was a victim of the carnage. Then she disappeared. Matthias thinks Kayla may have actually been the killer—and he wants justice.

Kayla Roy never stays in one place too long and never lets a man get too close. But keeping Matthias at arm’s length may be impossible. Dark and enigmatic, Matthias draws Kayla in from the start. She knows nothing about his connection to her dark past, or his thirst for vengeance. She only knows their attraction feels overpowering—and very dangerous.

Matthias’s suspicions about the sensual Kayla clash with his instinct to protect her, especially when he realizes her life is in danger. But Kayla’s not looking for a savior—especially one who seems hell-bent on tempting her down a lethal path.

Games People Play Series News!

I’ve had some questions about the Games People Play series that starts with THE FIXER. Well, I have some good news! The next book, THE ENFORCER, comes out April 25th. And I’ve sold more!!

Reminder, there aren’t any undercover operatives or law enforcement types, no serial killers or small town killers in this series. The heroes and heroines have messy, entangled pasts. In each book there’s an old mystery or unsolved case. Basically, think of these as emotional, sexy books with a touch of danger. Specifically, we have…

Book #1 (out now) THE FIXER – Go buy it. Really.

Book #2 (out 4/2017): THE ENFORCER – A heroine on the run and in hiding after a devastating massacre years ago, and a hero looking for answers and a bit of revenge. This one is available for pre-order, so get it now.

Book #2.5 (out 10/2017): Garrett’s book! This one will be a Christmas novella. It revolves around a man who rises from the dead – literally. Once you read THE ENFORCER you’ll probably understand who the “man” is.

Book #3 (out 12/2017): THE PRETENDER – An art thief and con artist hero who was in the absolutely wrong place at the wrong time when a murder occurred, and the prickly heroine he has to risk everything to save from prison.

Book #4 (summer 2018?)- I’m not 100% sure when this one is out or what the plot is. I’m still thinking it through, but the hero will be one of Quint 5 (or tangentially related to them), like the other heroes in the series.

New Release!!

It’s release day for GUARDING MR FINE!!!! This is a fast-paced, sexy romantic suspense with a diplomat stationed in Munich and the guy who’s reluctantly sent to be his bodyguard. There’s danger and secrets. One hero is gay and the other is bi, and they have an immediate attraction. In other words, if you want a sweet romance this probably isn’t for you.

Here’s he blurb to get you excited:


As an agent with the CIA’s special activities division, Seth Lang lives for risk—and yet he’s stuck playing bodyguard to the U.S. consul general in Munich. Although Seth’s last assignment nearly killed him, babysitting some desk jockey in a suit sounds way too easy. But when he lays eyes on the new top man, tactical expert Rick Fine, Seth’s thrilled to see just how hard this job is going to get. Mr. Tall, Dark, and Quiet has a body worth guarding—and he requires hands-on attention day and night.

Dispatched to a German consulate to expose the murder of his predecessor, Rick finds himself in an extremely vulnerable position. He needs a man like Seth—in so many ways. This mission will inevitably plunge them both into jeopardy, but each new threat only brings them closer. Rick just hopes that he can keep his deepest, darkest secret hidden—or else risk imperiling a relationship they’re both fighting for their lives to protect.

Good news: THE FIXER got a starred review in Publishers Weekly!!! The digital version is also on sale for $1.99, so now is the time to try it.

“Dimon (Bad Boys Undercover) excels at creating memorable, complex characters, and Wren’s slightly awkward behavior and Emery’s spunky personality form an unlikely, entertaining union.” – PW

Release Day!!

It’s release day for THE FIXER, the start of my new Games People Play series. This one doesn’t have explosions or undercover operatives. It does have a mysterious hero with limited people skills, a tough and determined heroine, a decade-old mystery and sexy times. It’s emotional and angsty and I think both romantic suspense readers and contemporary romance readers will love it…at least I hope so.


You can find the “buy” links HERE. Enjoy!!

Coming Soon!


THE FIXER, out December 27th. You can read an excerpt and get the pre-order links HERE.
