Get Hooked: Reel in a Great Book—Bucking Convention #MFRWAuthors #MFRWHooks

MFRW Authors Blog

Welcome to Book Hooks, the weekly smorgasbord sampler hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog.

Readers: get hooked and reel in some great books. Authors are sharing short excerpts from their work. Please enjoy and consider picking up the full book by clicking on the buy link.

I'm revisiting a current release, Bucking Convention, book two of the Top Dog Pilots series. Over the next few weeks, I'll post a few pivotal scenes between Max and Maggie.

This week, we meet Maggie who gets dropped into something of a mess.

Book Tagline: A tragic loss puts Cutter on the edge and it's up to Maggie to pull him back.

Series Tagline: Two top pilots, Max Cutter and Maggie Harper, like to mix a little personal with their professional life.


Captain Maggie Harper blew out a deep breath, flipping the folder in her lap closed. She didn't want to read any more details about the explosion that took the life of a fellow pilot. One she was en route to replace on the roster.
It sucked to step in when a comrade was lost. Worse, when you were personally involved in the fallout.
And it didn't get any more personal for her.
She happened to be replacing Max Cutter's wingman.
Her heart tripped a little. It could have been Max's ship. The prayer of thanks she sent out might be rude, but so be it. Maggie wouldn't apologize for being happy or relieved Cutter didn't die in a freak accident.
They had a good thing going and she wanted to keep it that way.
Six months and no signs of slowing down.
Maggie smiled. Their interesting Hell Week interlude proved to be just the thing they needed to get through that particular bit of the insanity. But they'd stumbled a little after they survived and danced around the idea of letting the sex remain a one-time thing.
Okay, she danced around it. The fear of losing Max as a friend almost won out, regardless of the really great sex.

Available on Amazon


Series Blurb: Follow the adventures of Max 'Ripper' Cutter and Maggie 'Magpie' Harper, two ace pilots at the top of their game. Whether it's surviving Hell Week, exploring uncharted space, or dealing with a unique family situation, Cutter and Maggie rise to the challenge.

Book Blurb: Max and Maggie survive Hell Week and start a relationship that works. Tragedy strikes Cutter's wingman and when Maggie shows up as the replacement, she discovers a very different Max. Not a good thing when he lives to fly… and can't.

Maggie wants to support Max and help get him back on an even keel, but living and working with him tests her patience and mettle. It's so much easier to handle two tons of space craft than a surly man.

  1. First I freaking love their names and the blurb. popping over to amazon to one click because 2 pilot/lovers in space?? Yep sign me up. Great snippet

    1. Awesome! I have a total thing for pilots/lovers in space. I'm thrilled you enjoyed the snippet. :D Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Okay, so I got the book, devoured and YEP loved it. The dialogue was snappy, Max's issues were well done and Maggie was strong and supportive without being overbearing. My kind of romance. Oh and for some reason their commander got me interested in HIM. LOL

    1. I'm thrilled you got interested in the commander. I have a feeling he'll be getting his own story once Max and Maggie are finished with theirs. The first book, Surviving the Trap, introduces them and their final book, Dress for Dinner should be out sometime this summer. After that, I think Essex might find a little romance on his horizon.

      Thank you so much for reading and I'm beyond excited you enjoyed it!
