Please enjoy my guest today, Kryssie Fortune!

Thanks Brenda for letting me drop by and talk about Adam Montgomery, hero of my latest release, Desire, Deceit and the Doctor. Adam does lots of things well, but he’s got a wicked temper.

         Back in his teens, Adam Montgomery believed his long-term girlfriend had betrayed him by sleeping with another man. His temper got the better of him, and he embarrassed her in a very public break-up at their senior prom. The next day, Adam fled his home town rather than face her. Thoughts of Mandy and what-might-have-been have haunted him for years.

Adam trained as a doctor, but he did it in another state. Studies finished, he enlisted in the army as a medical officer. While serving in the Middle East, Adam and a group of his fellow medics went to give aid to a newly liberated village. A sniper opened fire. He pinned all the doctors but Adam and his commanding officer in a foxhole. The first shot killed the young soldier assigned as their military escort. The other doctors needed first aid, badly.

Adam’s fury grew by the second. He grabbed his medical equipment and raced to the foxhole. Finally, first aid rendered, he grabbed the dead soldier’s rifle, took a bead on where the sniper had hidden and waited. And waited.

Eventually, the sniper stuck up his head to admire his handiwork. Adam fired. The sniper fell from the rooftop, the blood flowing from his head wound staining the building’s white walls.

A noise made Adam turn. Two insurgents ran at him, rifles cocked. Adam’s temper kicked in. No thought. Just instinct and training. He never felt the bullet tear through his shoulder. He fired two shots and the insurgents died. That’s when he realized he’d been wounded. He doesn’t tell people about it, especially since he’s been nominated for the Medal of Honor.

Now Adam’s home in Westhorpe Ridge, and he needs a bride to inherit the fortune his great-aunt left him. He’s horrified when he discovers Mandy Devlin—his former high school sweetheart and her ten-year-old son have come home too. She’s a single mom who adores her son, but after she betrayed him all those years ago, she’s the last woman Adam would ever marry.

After Adam Montgomery walked away and left her pregnant, dare Mandy trust him with her heart again? 


Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family--under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam—the man she loved and lost so long ago. 

Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her. 

As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?

About Kryssie Fortune

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae or BDSM loving dragons.

Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life - or Kryssie - throws at them.

Kryssie's pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that ends on a cliff hanger.

Her books are all stand alone, even when they’re part of a series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit.



  1. Hi Brenda. Thank you for letting me tell you about my heroes'background. Adam's one of my favorite characters, even if he didn't make it into print until the third stand-alone Heroes of Westhorpe Ridge series.
