Blurb: When Hunter and Alex are given the vacation of a lifetime, it’s a chance for them to pay attention to romance and get out of the path of danger. The tiny Caribbean island of Saba is gorgeous, the first to have marriage equality, and the Sabans are the nicest people on earth.
There’s lots of rum poolside for relaxing and a room with a mirror on the ceiling for passion. Hot karaoke nights, cold beer, and new friends.
But their new friends Orfeo and Max, and Max’s sister Talisha, share a troubling secret. Alex and Hunter want to help. As a hurricane bears down on them, a dead body surfaces, and a purple backpack loaded with stolen jewels leads a pair of dangerous men to the island.
Alex would rather poke his own eyes out with a pointy stick than call on his old enemy Nick Truman for help; he’d also do anything to keep Hunter out of danger. But even his nemesis can’t reach them now.
Once again, they only have each other to depend on as their paradise is about to become hell on earth.

Meet the author: Heloise West, when not hunched over the keyboard plotting love and mayhem, dreams about moving to a villa in Tuscany. She loves history, mysteries, and romance of all flavors. She travels and gardens with her partner of 10 years, and their home overflows with books, cats, art, and red wine.

"This is the second installment in the Heart and Haven series, a universe that began with Hitting Black Ice (Loose Id). Send Lawyers, Guns, and Roses picks up after the events in HBI a few months after. Hunter and Alex’s troubles aren’t over yet, and to help the couple escape them, Alex’s parents given them a vacation on the Caribbean island of Saba.

I love to travel, and though recently we’ve been alternating American and European cities, in another century I did some traveling in the Caribbean, mostly in the Lesser Antilles, as far south as Barbados. I’ve never been to Saba, though. I’d love to, now. "

1) What is the most satisfying thing about being a writer?
If I don't write, I don't know who I am. I've always written, had dreams of publishing despite negativity from family. I worked hard to get my work to a place I'm happy with though I know I have a lot to learn.

2) Do your characters ever take over your writing and make the story go somewhere you hadn’t originally planned?
Well, yes, but that's the process, right? Getting out of your own way, erasing that border between the character and the creative process.

3) How did you celebrate the release of your book?
Prosecco is the celebratory beverage of choice.

4) How did you come up with the idea for this book?
I needed to continue the story of Hunter and Alex in the same vein, as a romantic suspense. At first thought I thought I'd send them to Europe, get involved with spies or something. But I always loved the movie "Key Largo" and the Caribbean, so we went south instead of east.

5) Have you ever written naked?
Only when it's really, really hot. Outside.
