Guest Author Lynne Silver with an Open Letter

Heated Match A lead byline and a cover story—that’s what journalist Loren Stanton wants most. Until she meets genetically enhanced soldier Adam Blacker. Team leader of a top-secret covert ops group, Adam never wanted to search for his genetic match, but whenever he gets close to Loren, things turn hot quickly, making him forget every reason he had for retaining his bachelor status. After a scorching night together, neither doubts they’re connected at a DNA-deep level, although both fear the high stakes of what it means to be together.

Loren gives Adam two weeks to prove he’s bred for more than war. He must convince her that he’s also coded for love.

Heated Match is FREE starting August 19th!

An open letter to the Geneticists around the World:

Dear Doctors,

Can you pretty, pretty please use your superior intellect to make sure that all men grow up to develop six-pack abs. Beer guts ain’t pretty. And can you do something about back hair, because –ick. I know men have you slaving away at hair loss products, but most women are actually okay with a smooth scalp as long as there are no comb-overs please. Switch your focus to their abdominals, please.

Speaking of hair, let’s code women to have hair only in the places we want it. No more bikini or leg waxes! Women shall have skin that never loses its elasticity, especially after giving birth. Those tummy muscles will just bounce right back into place. Along with her breasts.  And her butt. We like our wardrobes and can’t afford to keep buying new as body parts sag and fall.

You know what else would be great? Skin that has built-in UV protection. Seriously, it would be good for human health AND the environment. I shudder at the amount of metal spray-sunscreen cans landing in a dumpster on this hot summer day. Not to mention, I could let my kids spend the whole day at the pool without nagging them about “Reapplication.”

Oh, and teeth. What’s up with the crooked yellowing teeth as we age? Despite proper dental care, most of us still required braces and teeth whitening. Let’s change that, because my son has an orthodontia bill coming soon that’s giving me nightmares.

I wouldn’t mind a cast-iron tummy. One that doesn’t allow more food when it’s full and doesn’t protest when I’m nervous or ate something it didn’t like.

That’s it. Not too hard, right? You’ll get on it?

My sincere thanks,
Lynne S.

About Lynne:
By day, Lynne Silver lives the suburban soccer mom life; volunteering with the PTA, doing laundry and working. By night she enters the sensuous world of alpha males and passionate heroines.

She calls the nation’s capital home and lives in an old fixer-upper with her husband and their two sons. When not writing romance, she reads it. Lots of it. Over and over and over again, preferably with a bag of M&Ms in hand.

  6. I'm with bn100. Gaining weight where I want it, not where it landed! This book sounds very interesting. Looking forward to reading it.

  7. Sounds like not only a heated match, but a perfect one!
    The first thing that came to mind is that I'd like never ending energy-you know to be able to go, go, go like when I was in my twenties!
    Is your story futuristic or contemporary? I'd like to imagine there's already a cure for the not-so-perfect:)

    1. Considering how tired I am this Monday morning, energy sounds awesome.
