The New Cover is Here…

…for my January 2017 release.  This is the first of four and available now on Amazon.  I’ll be posting what I sent Harlequin’s Art Department so you can see how they did.  I’m loving the single male hero covers and really intrigued by the perspective.  This is Carter Bear Den.  He’s a hot shot who fights wildfire for a living and wildfire is about to take-over his world when he arrives just in time to rescue his old flame from a mass shooting and uncovers a plot that threatens his tribe.  TURQUOISE GUARDIAN is available for pre-order now.

New Cover for Apache Protector - TURQUOISE GUARDIAN by Jenna Kernan

                                                 Pre-Order Now!

 

Her Warrior Protector 

Carter Bear Den is a proud Apache of the Turquoise Canyon Reservation. The former US Marine is a member of the Turquoise Guardians working to protect his people and their land. When he discovers a grisly mass shooting at the Lilac Copper Mine, Carter’s one thought is to find Amber Kitcheyan.

After breaking her engagement to Carter and relinquishing her membership with the reservation, Amber found work at the mine. Now she is the sole survivor of the shooting—at best a witness, at worst a suspect. But Carter swears to protect the only woman he has ever loved, even if it means losing everything else.

New Home – The Sunshine State

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

I’m trying to adjust to a slower speed. This is challenging for a NY girl.

I’ve moved from my long-time home in New York’s Hudson Valley to the coast of Florida.  My driver’s license makes it official.  In the heat of July, I am enjoying writing indoors and find myself developing new routines.

You can't beat the sunsets here.

You can’t beat the sunsets here.

I’ve been swimming first thing in the morning and then getting to my office to write.  In the evenings, I walk the beach.  The Skimmer birds and the Terns are raising their young near the sea grass and I enjoy the raucousness of their parenting.  Those babies are always hungry.

I think the climate agrees with me.  I got my proposal in early for book #3 in the Harlequin Intrigue series APACHE PROTECTORS: TRIBAL THUNDER.  And I’m hoping to have the draft for that story completed this week.

The copy edits for book #2 EAGLE DANCER are done and so are the final edits for book #1 TURQUOISE GUARDIANS.  Those stories arrive in January and February 2017.

I’m turning my attention to my September release, a Western historical, THE WARRIOR’S CAPTIVE BRIDE.  My editor is encouraging me to enter this one in the Rita Awards from Romance Writers of America. That’s good feedback.  I’m looking forward to the September 1 release and hearing from my readers if they agree.

Jenna Kernan research trip for new mini-series: APACHE PROTECTORS: Tribal Thunder

Lucky me!  I got out of cold, damp, snowy New York in February this year.  I’ve never been south of the Grand Canyon before and this time I nearly made it to Mexico.

Cactus give terrible directions!

I was doing some research for an upcoming series I am writing for Harlequin Intrigue.

I’m really pleased to announce that my APACHE PROTECTOR series, that finishes up in June 2016, will be followed by a new mini-series called APACHE PROTECTORS: TRIBAL THUNDER.

Jenna Kernan takes a wrong turn on a hike to cliff dwelling.

In preparation, I got myself out to Arizona in February to see and touch and smell.  All these experiences help me make my writing more vivid and evocative–help me get it right, when describing a place.  There is no substitute for experiencing something.

I’ll be sharing more of this trip in my blog, including the mining town, ghost town and Apache reservations that I visited.  I hope you will stop back.
