Monica Mann has made it her life’s work to save lives. After an earthquake and tsunami hit the shores of Jamaica, she volunteers her trauma skills with Borderless Nurses. Calculating and methodical, Monica creates order out of whatever chaos she finds.
Until she finds the perpetually barefoot, impossibly masculine Trent Fairchild. No one can pin him down. No, really. He's a pilot and manages a small fleet of choppers on his adopted island home. Hopelessly drawn to one another, they manage to slip away from the wreckage to get a little closer. And they get a lot closer than expected when aftershocks from the earthquake trap them in a life-or-death scenario. Paradise has brought them together. Now will it tear them apart?

Good morning Catherine! It's so nice to see you. I was just finishing up with a veggie quiche if you'd like to come on back to the kitchen. I can't wait to hear about Not Quite Enough. It sounds wonderful!
The set up for Not Quite Enough is a little different--I'm really liking that. If you had 35 seconds to hook someone in what would you tell them about it?
Thirty-five seconds, huh? Okay, how about this… couples that nearly die together, stay together.Yup that'd do it! Any fun behind the scenes facts about Monica, Trent and Not Quite Enough you can share with us?
- Monica has a fear of heights but not of earthquakes…that’s all about to change.
- Trent preferred Ginger over MaryAnn.
- There is nothing predictable about this book. Nothing!
Their first kiss, and the lead up to it, made this writer fall in love with Trent.
For Monica, it isn’t so much as when I felt her falling in love as when I felt her breaking on the inside without the man of her dreams.mmm can't wait to see that scene! I love a good bit of kissing. I saw that you're actually an RN. That's amazing. Do you ever sneak little tidbits or happenings from your real life experiences into your books?
This book is proof that I write many things about my life in the ER. I no longer work in the hospital, but I do know and knew many nurses and doctors who volunteered with relief organizations like the one I made up. The stories they came back with were unimaginable. Though this story is of my own imagination, the possibility is certainly there.Okay just a few silly ones...
Yard gnomes or Pink Flamingos?
Gnomes give me the creeps! Pink Flamingos!If I could get away with it I'd totally do...?
But let’s face it I probably wouldn’t, Grrr. But I can think about it! LOL *bwaha omg I'm dying that is the best response ever!*Favorite office supply?
Paperclips, staples, anything with color. I get all girly over lime green and pink. Yeah, I’m a geek that way.Favorite scent for a cleaning supply?
Don’t care so long as it smells clean!So with ya on that. Thanks so much for coming by Catherine! And congratulations on the new release. Not Quite Enough really does sound amazing and I can't wait to give it a read.
Thank you for having me here today. I had fun!
