#SpecialFeature :: Morgan’s Hunter by Cate Beauman

Now Presenting:
*** SPECIAL FEATURE - January'13 ***

Morgan Taylor, D.C. socialite and wildlife biologist, leads a charmed life until everything changes with a phone call. Her research team has been found dead—slaughtered—in backcountry Montana.

As the case grows cold, Morgan is determined to unravel the mystery behind her friends’ gruesome deaths. Despite the dangers of a murderer still free, nothing will stand in her way, not even the bodyguard her father hires, L.A.’s top close protection agent, Hunter Phillips.

Sparks fly from the start when no-nonsense Hunter clashes with Morgan’s strong-willed independence. Their endless search for answers proves hopeless—until Hunter discovers the truth. 

On the run and at the mercy of a madman, Morgan and Hunter must outsmart a killer to save their own lives.

Music plays a HUGE part in my writing process. I typically listen to Pandora or YouTube while I create my stories and compile a collection of songs that I feel represent my characters or the situations they face as each novel unfolds. It’s a rare occasion that my creativity demands silence (And that’s a good thing. I’m a mother of two rowdy boys. Quiet doesn’t exist in my house.).  I thought it would be fun to create a list of songs that ‘spoke’ to me while I wrote the first three novels in The Bodyguards of L.A. County. ~~~ Cate Beauman

Fun Facts about Morgan’s Hunter

Morgan’s Hunter is the first novel I ever wrote. I didn’t even know I wanted to be a writer until the idea for their story ‘popped’ into my head.

In less than forty-eight hours, Morgan’s Hunter started climbing Amazon’s Hot 100 New releases (in Romantic Suspense).

Since the October (2012) release of The Bodyguards of L.A. County, Morgan’s Hunter has been a top selling e-book and paperback in the romantic suspense genre, topping out in the number 18 spot on Amazon’s best sellers (Romantic suspense—paid).

Readers seem to either love Morgan or hate her.  Luckily, more readers love her very STRONG independent streak.  <grin>.

An actual Special Forces soldier in the United States Army consulted with me to perfect the opening scene of chapter one.

Out of all the male characters I’ve written, I have the biggest crush on Hunter—a muscular hottie with blue eyes, a sexy dimple in his chin, and one hell of an attitude with just a few sweet spots mixed in. YUUUUM!

Hundreds of hours of research were necessary to create Morgan and Hunter’s story. Documentaries (Yellowstone, military, animal tracking), face-to-face interviews, internet reading… the list goes on and on! 

Morgan’s Hunter was supposed to be a single stand-alone book, until Ethan and Sarah (Hunter’s friends) begged me to tell their story, then Hailey and Austin. Halfway through the making of MH, The Bodyguards of L.A. County was born.
