The Bad Boy and the Cop*—Welcome to Flaming, MO
*Tentative, very uninspired, extremely temporary title, until something much catchier hits me.
A while back, Kate Aaron and I came up with a series idea to co-write based on the feel-good type of movies my grandmother watches on the Hallmark Channel, but with more swearing and sex, because we’re honest with ourselves. We’re after the cozy feel and small town idealism, so a diverse group of people—not always straight, not always white, not always cis-gender or gender conforming—can get their HEAs too. Thanks to our schedules, I’m up to bat with the first installment, classified only by the pairing in what’s probably the most irritating temp title ever.
I’d like to introduce you to Grant and Marc, residents of Flaming, MO, a small town in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.
