Publisher: Decadent Publishing
Date of Publication: December 2012

Six months ago, Siobhan Cantrell’s world was changed forever by a sniper’s bullet. The incident transformed her from a secure confident woman to a recluse, afraid to leave her own home. When her friends urge her to re-enter the world of the living, they suggest Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand dating service. Nervous, she signs up and learns the company is renown for in-depth background checks and safe encounters. So, how dangerous could it be?

Sergeant Bobby Martin has witnessed Madame Eve’s magic firsthand. His teammate found true love through her service. Still a skeptic but giving in to peer pressure, the Air Force Pararescueman signs himself up. When he meets Siobhan, his doubts fly out the window—unfortunately bullets start flying in them. Determined to protect her from a sniper that won’t give up, Bobby vows to keep her safe. As their chemistry ramps up, so does the sniper’s attempts.

 Can Bobby keep Siobhan alive, or will the killer catch them in his sights?

Sand, Skittles, Snipers & Steamy Sex

Debbie: Today, my co-author, Laura Garland (L.J. Garland) and I are in beautiful Destin Beach, Florida, sitting down with Bobby “Bobcat” Martin and Siobhan Cantrell, the hero and heroine of In My Sights.
LJ: Oh, I love them. And by sitting down, you mean kicking back in beach chairs beneath a huge umbrella while we sip drinks, right?
Debbie: Absolutely!
LJ: Mmm…mocha frappaccino.
Debbie: Really, Laura? Frappaccino? I was thinking more along the lines of a frozen Margarita or something along those lines.
LJ: (shrugs) You got your drinks. I got mine. Hey, look! Here they come. Don’t they look great together?
Debbie: Of course they do, we wrote them.

LJ: Hey, guys! Glad you could make it!
DEBBIE: Okay, sorry gotta get this question out of the way. Just what the heck were you two thinking, having sex out on the gun range? All out in the open like that.
LJ: Yeah. Weren’t you afraid of getting you’re a—, I mean butt shot off by some stray bullet?
BOBBY: Uh, it’s not like anyone was around. We had the whole place to ourselves. I’d made sure of it.
SIOBHAN: Yeah, and we were kind of interrupted in our first attempt. Thanks to you two.
BOBBY: That’s right. You two think you can control us? Well, I’ve got news for you. We do what we want, and we wanted to have sex, then and there! Nuff said.
LJ: So, Siobhan, you got to get a hold of his big gun?
BOBBY: (grins) Yes, ma’am, she did.
SIOBHAN: I think she meant your sniper rifle. LOL
BOBBY: Oh, yeah. Well, you got your hands on that, too.
SIOBHAN: (slaps Bobby’s shoulder) Stop. Yes, LJ, Bobby taught me how to shoot his rifle. The experience was quite exhilarating.
BOBBY: I’ll say.
DEBBIE: Okaaay. So, Bobby, what did you think of Siobhan when you first saw her?
BOBBY: Gorgeous. All that blonde hair of hers…really grabbed my attention. I couldn’t look away.
SIOBHAN: And I was pretty much looking everywhere else.
LJ: Really? (eyes Bobby) He’s pretty darn hot. What else were you looking at?
SIOBHAN: The balcony, behind potted plants, where all the other guests were seated, whether our waiter looked shady, where all the exits were located. You know, the usual.
DEBBIE: That doesn’t sound like the usual to me.
LJ: Me neither. Why were you checking all that out.
SIOBHAN: I have my reasons.
BOBBY: But she’s past that now.
SIOBHAN: (grasps Bobby’s hand) Thanks to you.
DEBBIE: (huge eye roll) Okay, Siobhan, what gives?
LJ: (snorts) What, did you think there might be a sniper or something on the balcony?
BOBBY: Let’s just say, some guy tried to kill her and leave it at that.
DEBBIE: Well, what did you think of Bobby when you first saw him?
SIOBHAN: He was big.
LJ: (smirks) Are we back to talking about his gun again?
SIOBHAN: Well, that is big, too. But what I thought was he’s so tall and…big. At first I was a little overwhelmed. But he put me at ease pretty quickly.
DEBBIE: Oh, I just bet he did.
BOBBY: I tried. (glares at Debbie) But I was interrupted.
DEBBIE: Alright already. Enough with the interrupted sex. It is what it is, and you two hooked up. So it’s all good.
BOBBY: (eyes Siobhan) Yes it is.
LJ: Ahem. So, Bobby. Tell us a little about yourself.
BOBBY: What do you want to know?
DEBBIE: What’s up with the Skittles addiction?
BOBBY: What’s not to like?
DEBBIE: Sheesh, like pulling teeth with you today. Would you get over it? You two got it on in the next chapter.
BOBBY: No, I believe it was two chapters away.
DEBBIE: Laura, help!
LJ: One chapter, three chapters. What does it matter? You had hot, sweaty sex!

BOBBY: That we did.
DEBBIE: Okay, maybe a different topic then. Which one of you guys on the team has the Twinkie addition?
BOBBY: That would be Kyle.
DEBBIE: How’s he doing now that Hostess has gone under. Probably having a heck of a time with withdrawal, huh?
BOBBY: Wouldn’t know, would I? (grins) Guess you better finish the next book, so we’ll all know.
DEBBIE: Enough of the attitude, mister. Keep it up and we wont let you be part of the rescue.
BOBBY: Rescue? (narrows eyes) What exactly are you two planning?
LJ: Privileged information.
SIOBHAN: Will it be dangerous?
DEBBIE: It’s us. What do you think?
LJ: Hmm…and what was the title of the next story, Deb?
DEBBIE: I believe it’s Explosive Conditions.
SIOBHAN: Does anyone die?
LJ: Just enjoy your time with your man.
SIOBHAN: (squeezes Bobby’s hand) Maybe you should ease up a bit?
BOBBY: Damn writers.
DEBBIE: (glances at watch) Time’s up.
LJ: Thanks for coming by and chatting! We’ll be looking for you in the next book.
Debbie: Whew! That Bobby is something else.
LJ: Yeah, but we managed to wrangle him into place.
Debbie: Damn characters.
LJ (snort)
