I just finished The Mercenary and liked it. (Although I was a little disappointed it didn't really go into the origins of TFLAC as much as I expected/hoped).  So I was wondering when the next book would be out so I went to Fantastic Fiction and got really excited when I saw she has 3 books coming out soon-yay! Then I investigated more only to find that it seems that all 3 are paranormals. NOOOOO! I did read the Edge trilogy only because it was Adair but I was hoping she'd stay away from that. At least Shannon McKenna still sticks with "normal" humans. What a letdown though.

(Good news for those of you that like paranormals though!)

Have you read the other T-FLAC books or just the Mercenary?  Because she has a whole lot more of T-FLAC stuff out there.

I've read all the T-FLAC. I guess I'll probably read these anyway but they will be library or PBS books and not keepers for me. (McKenna's newest book is out in Nov. so there is that too.) Thanks though!

It just seems like many of my favorite action-romance authors are going paranormal which isn't really my thing.

The Mercenary was originally published as a Harlequin Tempation so it's a shorter format book, designed for about 220 pages.  Can't get into much detail with that short of a story.

I'm not a huge paranormal fan either and it seems like every author is going that route. I read some but really the vampires, werewolves and shapeshifters are not my thing.  I do like futuristic (aliens) sometimes.  I don't like series that get too complicated and some of those paranomral series get that way.  Which creatures are what, which mating rules they follow, how are they all related-complicated "family" trees.  It's just too much.  I loved Kresley Cole's historicals but now all she writes if paranormals.
